Time seems to pass differently for those on the inside of a project and those on the outside. For me, Ronson and F were my afterhours life for two years and I’ve felt they were mostly finished for at least one more year but for anyone I told about the project it probably seems like a lifetime ago. So I have good news, everybody…
The Courtship of Ronson Crumb starring yours booly will finally be premiering on October 7th at the world famous Tribecca Cinemas. We will also be showing the full 22 minute long F is for Film pilot either before or after the film. Unfortunately the event is by invitation only. If you’re my crazy stalker fan, the best way to get an invite is to comment on every single post here at utau-inu.com to, you know, get my attention. Anyway, I’m excited.
I adore this movie but I adore the way it was made even more. They recorded the goddamn voices for the goddamn characters while doing a dress rehearsal on partially built sets!? Are you freakin’ kidding me? That is the best idea for dialogue recording I’ve ever heard. The results are absolutely spectacular. I would seriously watch an entire film of the actors doing their thing live action style, but the animators were so good they’ve made that mostly redundant.
Johnny says of the process, “It’s like being on Hee Haw or The Carol Burnett Show.” Best idea ever. Gore Verbinski has yet again proven why he’s sorely missed on the Pirates series and also why he should never go back.
It has been far too long, my lovely internet hounds.
I have been a very busy boo-bear. First of all, I have my own “TV Show.” I use quotations because it’s really more of a filler segment that airs all across the state of New Jersey between other shows no one watches on a channel that most people surf through without a second thought. Also, I can’t tell you when it will definitively be on the air because it’s random. It’s not all doom and gloom though, because thanks to the magic of the internet, I’m able to share my show with you on the down low. So go and watch interviews: with people but don’t run off to facebook or tweet these awesome contents because it’s our little secret. This really is the most deranged thing I’ve been a part of yet (this runs a close second) and I am immensely proud of it.
You’ll notice that the video player has been upgraded. Yeah. It rocks. Sakura (aka Leisl Schrader) owned the redesign. About the only thing this new and improved shit doesn’t do is the dishes. The rest of the site got an overhaul too although the design remains the same. Mostly, it’s just become very easy for me to do my own updates for the video and audio content so that’s what I intend on doing.
I always said I wanted this site to be more about content delivery than commentary. It’s basically my refrigerator door and it is your job to tell me how much you love my picture of a fire engine. I will, of course, return the favor where possible.
The other news I have has nothing to do with projects or work and everything to do with NEW LIFE SPAWNING FROM MY WIFE’S WOMB. Yes, a little boo is on the way. My spawn grows strong. We’re expecting in early June. Life is amazing. It has fingers!!
Lots of fun stuff on the way. I hope you’ll come back now that I’m ready to share my toys again.
Forgive the visual pun but I simply have to say it. There’s no way to act in a film without getting your hands dirty (or bloody as the case may be.) I recently acted the lead in my friend’s short horror/romantic comedy genre-straddler The Courtship of Ronson Crumb and it ruined me emotionally and physically for hours at a time.
Guys, let me start off by saying that I do not claim to be an actor. I have never studied acting. I’m not even sure I know what “acting” is. For a long time I believed what an actor friend of mine told me: Acting is lying. To be a good actor you have to be a good liar. Well, it didn’t take long into the shoot for me to realize that this, like the Abominable Snowman before it, was horse feathers.
From my limited experience playing a delusional psychopath I have come to the conclusion that acting is not lying. Acting is far more similar to telling the truth.
The F is for Film website will go live on October 16th if all goes according to plan. I have not figured out which episodes will be completed and ready to go by that time but I would not launch without killer new content. Rest assured this is a NEW SHOW in almost every respect.
After that I’ll begin filming on Ronson. Can’t wait to shoot at the shore in short sleeves in 50 below weather.
