"Hunters" is Amazon's newest series, which takes place in the '70s and follows a group of vigilante misfits seeking to destroy Nazi officials residing in America. The show has a stellar cast, starring Al Pacino and Logan Lerman among others. I intend on reviewing the ten episode series in two-episode batches.
Recently, I wrote a script for a dramatic short film that I will be shooting this Spring. "Dust to Dust" is my first serious attempt at writing a script, and I am thrilled to share it with you. It is still a work in progress, though as it stands, the story follows a young thief--Wayne Marcus--as he attempts to get out from under the thumb of Frank Garza--a middle-aged conman with dirt on Wayne.
One of my favorite genres is the coming-of-age teen comedy-drama. In a word, they are relatable. Rather than ignore teen's problems, films like these address the akward difficulty in growing up, along with the hilarious moments too. Above all, the biggest reason I love coming-of-age movies, is they are just plain fun.
This past month, I went on a trip with my family. A trip I would never have dreamed of in high school. A trip I could only dream of when I’m successful. The average trip out of my hometown is three hours away from where I live (From Wisconsin to Minnesota). For a middle class and low income family, this trip would be a priceless trip I will forever take with me. I went to Thailand. Besides having fun and cruising in the night markets of Thailand past midnight, there were a few lessons I took from my time over there.
The thumbnail is an image of Beth Cavener's magnificent, "The Question that Devours." The sculpture is in the Chazen Museum of Art in Madison, Wisconsin and was the inspiration for this script. Unfortunately, due to the current environment, I am unable to shoot the film this spring. However, I rewrote almost the entirety of the script and would like to share what could have been. "Dust to Dust" is my passion project, and I hope to see it through in the future. Enjoy!
