Whats Going On Everybody Hope Youre Having
a great day. This is going to be the first in a series of videos that relate to my approach to filmmaking. What I’m working on with Shelby Oaks and what’s in store for the future and in this case, I really wanted to talk about things that have inspired me over the years and we’re going to get pretty specific. Throughout the course of this video. I’m not just going to like say a movie and then move on.
Currently The Shelby Oaks Kickstarter Is Doing
very very well. There are so many great rewards on this kickstarter including but not limited to an exclusive blu-ray. They will only be available through this Kickstarter. It won’t be the standard blu-ray release that you might see in a store. The only way to get this blu-ray is through the kickstarter and I want.
It With Extras I Really Want To Make
it like those good old-fashioned blu-rays that are filled with featurettes and making ups and commentaries and all kinds of really fun stuff that I miss from Blue rays of old We are on track to become the most funded horror kickstarter of all time, which I am blown away by and we just gotta keep going because we’re getting closer every single day towards achieving a budget that will actually allow me to make shelby Oaks the way. I want to make it so again as always thank you so much for continuing to support me let’s talk about things that have inspired me over the years. The first one’s fairly obvious I think basically anyone who’s ever wanted to make movies at least this generation and the one before it in some way shape or form has been inspired by. The man has made so many iconic movies that I couldn’t even really name them all off the top of my head. I would have to sit down and think about it.
I Saw Jaws For The First
time when I was a little boy because it was Pg and so for whatever reason my parents were like whoa it’s rated Pg so that’s okay and I was absolutely riveted by the movie from start to finish. It was the most insane gory thing. I had ever seen that age. I watched Hook countless times as a child and I still enjoy it as an adult, but his approach to filmmaking has always really resonated with me, but what’s impressed me the most over the years is how versatile he is. He’s made a film in essentially every genre, and he’s had success in pretty much every genre a lot.
Of Directors Kind Of End Up In
a wheelhouse where they keep doing the same thing over and over again and sometimes it’s not even their fault. Sometimes that’s people who finance movies and they know well John Carpenter. You know what you’re good with horror Wes craven you’re good with horror Sometimes filmmakers can get trapped in a box Spielberg very early on wasn’t with movies like Duel Sugarland express jaws close encounters of the third kind those are all very different films and each one of them had varying levels of success and so he put a stamp on himself very quickly to not be pigeonholed into one genre. That is also something that inspires me a lot because I love horror but I don’t want to not be able to make a drama at some point like I I I love every genre of film and i. Like the idea of experimenting within all of them If I ever got the chance to Sam Raymie, This man is amazing because everyone that I’ve ever spoken to that has worked directly with him.
Has Said Hes One Of The Kindest And
most genuine human beings in the industry. Despite years and years of successful movies and genuinely being an icon. He supposedly hasn’t let it go to his head and I really love that about him, but of course the evil dead trilogy. The Spider-man trilogy. You know there are just certain things that are always going to mean a lot to me, but his approach to filmmaking and producing is something that I really admire because he tends to at least from the interviews that I’ve watched put the audience first.
Hes Always Thinking About What The Audience
will get out of a film how to give. audience a ride make sure they’re entertained He cares about the viewer a lot of directors Don’t. I think that just about any filmmaker has to have a piece of them that gets inspired by the material. They’re working on especially if they wrote it obviously and so it’s not like you’re only making movies for the audience. Everybody takes a job because there’s something about it even if it’s just money, but there are some directors who genuinely I don’t give a bleep about the audience.
Im Making A Movie.
I want to make this is my painting and I don’t care if anybody likes it. Raymie seems to be very much so an audience director. He cares about the experience that people have while watching his films more than any filmmaker that I’ve ever had the pleasure of talking with There’s one filmmaker who has been the most. supportive of me from ever mentioning that I wanted to make films to now.
I Have No Business Being Able To Communicate
with this person or receive the amount of support that I have received from him and yet Mike Flanagan continues to back me up and I’m gonna be endlessly grateful for that regardless of whatever happens over the next 20 years. It’s just really wonderful to see someone who has made Stephen King adaptations and some of the most successful Netflix shows of all time say Hey man I see something in you that’s great go for it like it’s very difficult to fully communicate how much that has meant to me. Over the years. There are very few films and Tv shows like his that take the time and the care and the attention to detail with his characters and with the editing that he does and he edits his own work usually and so you know it’s all him He feels like the guy on your street who also happens to direct multi-million dollar projects and I really am always going to be inspired by filmmakers who don’t let the system go to their head every director. I’ve been talking about makes really good looking movies and clearly cares about the way their films look the way their films sound and the story but above all the director that I think cares the most about the way their films look is David Fincher.
David Fincher Is A Scientist.
I think before a director He is so careful and I I think a lot. people get confused sometimes when they hear the multiple takes thing they think well he’s just he’s just looking for something that’s that’s maybe not there yet and and yes that’s the case sometimes with the performer maybe with the shot and of course, I don’t know the man personally so I could just be talking out of my ass right now, but when I look at his movies, especially ever since social network there’s something about the framing that is so consistent throughout ever since then, and there’s a really great video by Nerdwriter, who’s awesome by the way and you should check out their channel. They analyze just how careful fincher is with every camera movement and the way he always keeps people whatever the focus of attention is usually a human being within perfect stride with the camera, whether it’s a tilt a pan tracking it’s like. That filter you see people use on instagram where they lock the camera on a moving body and then it just moves perfectly with the body except it’s like he’s looking for that perfect take that just did it and you see that throughout all of his movies and that meticulous level of framing is something that I will strive for but I know I won’t be able to achieve because he makes movies with a lot of bleep money and he’s David Fincher and he’s made really big movies and so he can tell Jake Gyllenhaal to drop the book on the seat and Zodiac 80 times without getting a call from the studio saying what the bleep are you doing and of course I have to talk about M night Shyamalan everybody who watches my channel knows that his films have meant a lot to me, but there’s.
A Specific Element Of His Career That Ive
always paid particular attention to and that has impacted me considerably. There isn’t exactly a consistency of quality, and I don’t think it’s because of the popular viewpoint that so many people have so many people are like well. He’s just you know he just kind of sucks sometimes and sometimes he doesn’t. I think m night Shyamalan is somebody who makes whatever the hell he wants to make for better or worse and I respect that because he has found a way especially lately ever since like originality is starting to get harder and harder to come by. In films that are obsessed with IP and not that he hasn’t done.
Ip Old Was Based Off A Graphic Novel
last airbender, but in general, he tries to make movies that nobody else is really interested in making when I was a. Kid and I saw independence day. I was like wow that was really fun, but there wasn’t a single part of me that understood how Roland Emrick made independence Day but when I saw signs, which was also an alien invasion movie I was like bleep. I think I know how to make that movie that makes sense to me. I understand that and that’s why he was the initial spark for me to get interested in filmmaking because he made it digestible for me, but it’s also just been his approach.
Over The Years.
He did a great interview where he talked about how he’s been on the list of worst directors of all time and the list of best directors of all time and before the visit. He was in a place where he basically couldn’t get a job and he made the visit with his own money. Nobody wanted to hire him and nobody wanted to pick it up and he pretty much thought I think we might be done. I think this is it and universal.
Eventually Did And The Visit Was Insanely Successful
and Shyamalan owned it that is rogue as bleep like nobody does that he doesn’t get enough credit for it and people. Don’t realize that because people like to just repeat whatever they hear online Somebody says something oh well okay well now. I’ll say it and then people become comfortable making fun of somebody or or always you know being an bleep because everyone else is doing it so now. I’m gonna do it too and that makes me feel good or whatever but like I don’t know anybody who’d be like yeah.

Im Gonna Mortgage My House To Make
a film that has no distributor and just hope that somebody. picks it up and keep in mind The dude’s got a family so that is bleep insane and incredibly ballsy and he pulled it off and really went to the bank afterwards. So when people talk bleep about Shyamalan.
