Been a Minute. Casting time is back. Unfinished Business.

Sorry about the typos and such, still moving and getting everything together to start auditions next week. So get hype about that.

We’re finally doing casting for the last chapter of the Serious Business Saga. If you’re not familiar with the series, it takes place in a world where people play music games (Dance Dance Revolution band such) and things slowly devolve into issues of murder and betrayal.

Crazy I know.

But after the two straight years at the GenCon Film Festival, it’s well received enough apparently. So after 6 years off, we’re back to the project we’ve all loved the most, co written with a dear friend who is no longer with us.

The films the way they were written allowed us to go in whatever direction or tone we thought felt right.

And it’s a musical… Of sorts now. And that said, let’s get down to business.

Female 40-60: Revenge driven gal with a passion for dancing. Been waiting a long time to get that revenge as well.

Female 20-40: A rocker with a golden voice and a knack for dismembering people

Female 20-30: Sort of clueless, and getting sucked into a dark underworld she wants no part of.

Male 20-50: Excentric ringmaster type. Willing to do anything to get that perfect show or that extra viewer

Male 30-60: Detective type. Really into himself and takes his job too seriously.

And there you have it. Let’s get this rolling.

Send your resumes, headshots… And I don’t know whatever else. Surprise me to wolfenfilms@gmail.com. I’ll be sure to get to every single one of you.

And most importantly, yeah I’m paying ya’ll. I don’t believe in anything else.

Good night and good luck.

Wow! The links have changed! Also… The Girl with the Scarf…

Yeah, I couldn’t really think of a title for this one. But check out the links and the blogroll. Added someone I think will be noteworthy in the future, if not now. Go check out Lucca when you get the chance. I’m sure glad I did.

TRAUMA PACCCCCCCCKKKKK: My thoughts on Avatar

I really liked Dances With Wolves. It provided some excellent commentaries on social acceptance… and let’s just face it, native Americans are just badass. Who wouldn’t want to watch a movie about a race of people you wouldn’t know about otherwise.

I also really liked Fern Gully. My stepmom took me to see it when I was a young one. It gave a positive message about protecting the rainforest and recycling and shit… but did it in a fun way.

2009… AVATAR!

First of all, I have NOTHING against James Cameron. I loved the (first two) Terminator Films… and besically everything he’s done except for Titanic… that was overrated.

I went into Avatar expecting to be blown away, cuz Cameron said so. To my disappointment, that’s not what I saw. What I saw was… well let me put it this way.

You know those Christmas presents you get that suck, and you wrap them again and give them to other people the next year? Yeah, that’s Avatar. Same shit, different wrapping… very shiny, pretty wrapping.

The story is literally Pocahanis from start to finish. Go read a book, I’m right.

When the movie was over, I was treated so same of the most beatuful CG I’vev seen outside a Final Fantasy game. I But I hated it.

We have one-dimensional Hollywood CG characters in 3-D, enacting the same bullshit cheesified glorifications: of the war machine, of native spirituality, of interspecial sex-intrigue as way of imperialist redemption. Fuck. There is no redemption, other than just stopping the land-rape and exploitation on this planet. Making a half-billion dollar movie and a line of plastic toys to promote the message is the next step in the (now inevitable) down-hill trek into Idiocracy.

Then the fans came.

I totally mean this. Avatar fans and Twilight fans are locked in bloody war to see who can be the most brainless and retarded. You go up to any of them and ask them, whether they be painted blue or jacking it to pictures of Jacob Black, and ask them why they think their movie is so great.

I have yet to hear an intelegent answer.

And oh my God did I get an earfull from a lot of people on Oscar night after Avatar totally bombed at the Oscars. Not surprisingly, all those stupid people have never seen “The Hurt Locker”… but were talking about how it “looks boring”

I think that’s all I have to say about that shit. Avatar fans, shut up. You’re gonna forgot this movie in a few months anyway when the next big flashy thing comes out.

But what do I know about movies right?
