It’s difficult to accept…

It’s difficult to accept the difference between who you are in your head and who you are in the world.

Some thoughts on 2020

Last year I started with a different kind of look back or recap on the previous year, no more top ten lists but rather an unsorted or alphabetical list of things I liked and didn’t quite like. And also some notes on stuff I did. The idea was to summarize and categorize the year quickly … more →

Race, a short Blender Animation

Ok, that wasn’t actually planned, there’s a draft somewhere for a blog post about everything that happened in April, but I never really got to finish it because this beast here kept me busy for the last 3 days. What started as a test with certain Blender techniques, turned into this huge project with animation … more →

News from the movie-making front

For the last few days of the special working condition, I was focusing on adding new cool stuff to SoaPatrickSeven, played around with Blender a bit and came up with two new ideas for short films. Yes, I’ve mentioned project ideas in the past which never came to fruition. I would say not YET. They … more →

Some thoughts on 2019

I don’t want to make some top 10 lists about stuff I liked and didn’t like the past year as I did for 2017 (Best Movies, Worst Movies, Best TV Shows). Or just look ahead like I did last year. No, this year I thought I just mention things that I liked, things that I … more →

What’s the Dealio with the Counter?

I guess you must be wondering why there suddenly is a counter on top and why abandon the red color and use purple now? Well, this whole look isn’t new, a year ago I had this look already and it’s the same reason this year. Avengers Endgame will soon be upon us and I’m so … more →

I’m trying to put something together

It’s been some time since my last blog post and while I didn’t continue with the 100 Days Drawing Challenge, I was productive in another way. I had a blast shooting and editing that video I did last month (minus some slight frustration) and I’ve been trying to do something new. So I thought of … more →

“Infinity War” shocked me

Avengers Infinity War is not really a movie, it’s an event, an event 10 years in the making. I think Infinity War is best described as the Season Finale of Season 3 (or Phase Three when speaking in Marvel Cinematic Universe terms). So the anticipation was high and the movie delivered on all fronts. It’s … more →

Always the issue with Spoilers

With certain movies for which I’m having high hopes and am really looking forward, I started to avoid Trailers or RottenTomatoes Scores. I did this first with Avengers: Age of Ultron then again with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and then again last year with Star Wars The Last Jedi. When I finally do … more →

I’m all giddy

Yes yes yes… there’s a Countdown up top and no it’s not for a special release I’m planning here but rather for the release of Avengers: Infinity War. It’s probably the most hyped, anticipated and will be the biggest movie of the year and when that countdown hits zero, I will be sitting in the theatre … more →

My first attempts at making Movies

My uncle bought himself an old camcorder on eBay to play and transfer Video 8 and HI8 tapes. I too have four old tapes and yesterday I watched what was actually on these tapes because I had no Idea. To my surprise, there are old recordings of me and some friends trying to shoot movies. … more →

I have 380,000 things on my mind…

I have 380,000 things on my mind. It’s an air traffic control tower in there. I can’t really imagine anything else gripping me the way directing does. This is all I can do.

Why is 3D still a thing?

So I’m off to the theaters to watch Marvel’s latest Comic Book movie Black Panther which is supposed to be the best one yet in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now I’m having a hard time imagining that, but I’d love to be surprised. So I will once again see a movie at the theatre and … more →

Why do I watch Bad Movies?

I still watch bad movies, movies I expect and sometimes fully know to be bad and I think I get a kick out of it. I admit that I‘ve seen all the Twilight movies, all the Transformers, I‘ve seen both the first and the second 50 Shades of Grey and I will also watch the … more →

Deadpool keeps making funny Teasers

The Deadpool Marketing Machine keeps getting funnier and funnier and is still very meta (they have to be careful about becoming too meta though). It all started with the first Teaser shown before Logan back in March of 2017 and then it picked up 8 months later again with a funny Bob Ross spoof in … more →

Shooting Videos with an iPhone?!?

There are some blog posts, especially from way back in the day, where I talk about shooting movies. There are even two Short Films, Short Films? Let’s not call them Short Films, let’s just call them Scenes or Clips. One was The Insider and the other one was Slippery When Wet. It was fun shooting them and … more →

Geostorm, a bad Movie, but a fun time

I just finished watching Geostorm and I had such a blast even though the movie is such garbage. It would have made my Top 10 Worst Movies of 2017 easily, but compared to another recent stinker (Looking at you The Snowman, you are an absolute bore and I hardly could keep my eyes open) I actually laughed … more →
