Don't Kow-Tow To The Noise

Two years in the making, my film Pond Scum nears completion.

Truly a collaborative effort, it has grown and morphed and mutated like a living organism into something that is, strangely enough, about the nature of creativity.

What I like most about filmmaking is the evolution of each project, and how the subject matter brings the like-minded together.

Frankly, I make films based on what fires me up. I make films with budgets and without budgets. There is always a way. That's what being creative is. Finding a way. Finding your own way. And ignoring the noise of negativity, envy, those projecting their own insecurities onto you, and those kow-towing to convention.

I have no illusions about Pond Scum's fate beyond completion.

It is dedicated to cinema's great revolutionary, Koji Wakamatsu, who may spin in his grave when he sees it. Who knows!?

    Phantom, just to clarify something, you know all those months ago when you called me a coward over on Soiled Sinema for not having the guts to set up my own Heather O`Rourke themed blog. Well its important to realise that in "THE TIME OF SEXUAL REPRESSION" everyone in the world is a coward, they have to be by definition. Sexual repression breeds lies, hypocrisy, fear, cowardice, and stupidity. I just thought i should remind you of that.
