Hello, gentle readers.
I’m shooting a short film tomorrow morning. The script is by Nicole-Henriette Pirnie. It’s about two people on an awkward first date. They have Googled each other…too much. So, even though I should sleep because I have a 6:15 am call time, I am excited like a little kid on Christmas Eve because it’s the first thing I’ve directed since The Wardrobe. We’re going release the film online here sometime this fall.
I have had movie-brain so haven’t been hanging out online the past few days (except for Twitter…always Twitter), so comment moderation/reading & answering emails/thanking people for their amazing donations has been very spotty. That’s not likely to change in the next 72 hours, so if you’re fascinated by the discussions we’ve been hosting here lately here are some recs for places to continue them. First, did you see where our discussion of creeps made Citizen Radio’s podcast? If you want to read more about what we might be able to do to change rape culture, check out this excellent post about some things we could actually do to prevent rape. I also really liked Arabella Flynn’s tale of the Gronkulated Fleebwanger which breaks down how creepiness is about entitlement, not social awkwardness.
Sleep well, internet. Enjoy this photo of hummus.
