  • Day 1 of Lost & Found ✔️ One thing I love about filmmaking is the teamwork. It takes a lot of people to make a movie and to have a cast and crew that is passionate about the story and works together to bring it to life is such a gift. This is a good group! Can’t wait to get back on location on Sunday!

  • Good morning pimps and pimpettes. Today we talking about the second film released as a result of El Rey Network’s “Rebel Without a Crew” which is entitled Grandma’s House. Directed by B-K Ryan who described  the film as “feminist horror”, Grandma’s House is a horror/drama that feels like it could be very at home in the 70’s (a compliment). The most positive thing about the movie is without question the two lead actresses Rachelle Dimaria and Kathy Rose Center. Both of them are engaging enough to make me stay fully locked-in to what was happening, even when the movie stumbled a bit. Dimaria plays her role as the protagonist in a very likable “I’m very sweet but will also not put up with your bullshit” kind of way. Meanwhile Kathy Rose Center’s performance is so genuine, yet sinister with every line she says. All of the scenes between these two were great. Unfortunately the movie does “show its budget” in a few important scenes, and I wouldn’t exactly give any of the “action” high praise, but neither of those are “damning” by any means. The dramatic nature of the story and the performances of the two leads (and others) outweigh those criticisms. Now on to the final question of “would I have given a crap about this if I was unfamiliar with Rebel Without a Crew”? Mostly yeah. It’s the kind of movie I’d find playing late at night on Showtime, decide to watch a few minutes, and end up watching the entire thing. What about the masses? Does Grandma’s House have a place with them? The masses have attention spans that do not lend themselves to this sort of thing, but, but it has a place with them I’d say. Maybe not HUGE and maybe a bit of a niche one, but it’s there. Ok bye. #elrey #elreynetwork #robertrodriguez #grandmashouse #film #independentfilm #independentfilmmaking #rebelwithoutacrew #rebelwithoutacrewtheseries

  • Legends in Cinema: Robert Bresson (1901-1999)
.
Jean Luc Godard once wrote, "He is the French cinema, as Dostoevsky is the Russian novel and Mozart is German music."
.
Attention to detail. Robert Bresson is, in my opinion, a man who introduced this philosophy in cinema. If you closely observe his films, be it Pickpocket or A Man Escaped, you will notice that he truly takes you into the world of where the story is happening. .
From a cinematic perspective,it is kind of an augmented reality he creates within the confines of the two dimensions of the screen. Sound. If one has to learn sound design, one MUST NOT miss the intricate sound design of his films.
.
As a filmmaker, his approach did not sit well with many. Some of his unconventional methods include on location sound design (a revolutionary concept at the time), not giving the actors the script to read and using non-professional actors. He was, in its truest sense, one of the first 'auteurs' of french cinema. And his stories were, as every pure work of art should be, flowing from within.
.
Some of his films I'd recommend include Pickpocket, A Man Escaped and Au Hasard Balthazar.
.
To understand his methods and idelogy further, I'd recommend reading 'Notes on the Cinematograph' which is a collection of notes he made during his lifetime while making films.

  • Last night I had the pleasure of hanging out with Christine Rochon, Production Coordinator with work on projects including “Letterkenny” and “Carter”, and Producer on 2019 feature film “Fugue”. Look out for Christine’s feature, coming soon — only on The Let’s Talk Show podcast.

  • Oh hey so I just got done watching the action/comedy “Monday” which was made as a result of Rebel Without a Crew: The Series for $7000 (if you’re not already informed, that’s an INSANELY low amount to make a feature). Monday was directed by Alejandro Montoya Marín, who easily appeared to be the most competent on Rebel Without a Crew. With that in mind, Monday is exactly what it sets out to be... a funny and fast-paced series of unfortunate events. I mean yeah, not ALL of the jokes land, but even when it misses it’s never annoying or infuriating. Performances range from acceptable to good, as the writing holds it all together. The action scenes are better than most of the usual micro-budget action films, but the movie (smartly) doesn’t hinge on them. The real question is this: If I were unfamiliar with Rebel Without a Crew, would I still have had any interest in this? 
Answer: Yeah. It reminds me of the random things I used to find playing on cable every Saturday afternoon back when people actually watched regular tv. Now would someone who doesn’t give half of a shit about film (most people) have any interest in it? Well, it’s hard for me to figure out what the plebs want these days, but I do think there would be a small audience for it. Obviously they would harp on the “low-budgetness” of it, but I’d wager that if 100 randos were surveyed, more than half would probably be positive about it. I think the $7000 budget went a long way, and would definitely buy a physical copy if one is ever available. Ok I’ll shut up now. #elrey #elreynetwork #robertrodriguez #monday #film #independentfilm #independentfilmmaking #rebelwithoutacrew #rebelwithoutacrewtheseries
