Winner of The Student Academy Award. One of my fave shorts…
Thanks to IFC’s Independent Eye I have now seen my favorite film of 2009. David O’Reilly’s PLEASE SAY SOMETHING won the Golden Bear for short films at Berlin this year. It’s about ten minutes long but packs a wallup of emotion, innovation, and experimentation into those ten minutes. My day has been made.
Chris Marker’s LA JETEE haunts many filmmakers’ work. When I went to NYU, it was required viewing and I think you can see it’s influence in many grads’ work. Its marriage of form and content has rarely been equaled. His film SANS SOLEIL has also forever provoked me to deliver a true Essay Film — and I will one day. Both are Required Viewing.
