Help Me Get to Know Spielberg...

FOX network is doing a new reality show. This one is REEAAALLLLY cool. Its called "On the Lot” One of the creators of this show is the great Steven Spielberg. The purpose is to find 16 amateur filmmakers from around the world for participation in a filmmaker reality show. Basically a Film American Idol kind of thing. The last day to submit, upload or postmark your film was day before yesterday and I made it in the knick of time. At the end the competition the director will be awarded a million dollar development deal with DreamWorks.

I have entered this competition with a short film I did a few years back. It is a short "art" film and it is a silent film. Before the film they ask that we add a little intro about ourselves so that's on there too.

Here is where YOU come in and help your old buddy. The producers of the show are LETTING VIEWERS RATE the submitted films and THIS WILL PLAY A PART IN THE CHOOSING OF THE 16.

What would be AWESOME is if you all, my friends and compadres, would go to this site, take one minute to register and then give my film a rating and or a review. I would love to hear your input!!!! Please go review it. It will only take a second.

Also, if you feel so inclined, you have my permission to tell as many people as you want, AND if you are hard up for a blog topic, fire away with this one!!!

A reminder: This is a low budget, (0$) short "art" film. I shot it with one camera and a Mac with imovie. So don't expect the Matrix or Indy Jones. Also, if you right a review, there is no need to let on that you know me in the review. It will be more credible if you don't say "see you at church" or "you are the best teacher!" Although these things are flattering and I really LOVE seeing you at church, or teaching you theory, ear training or Guitar lessons, I imagine they won't take you too seriously. So, that being said, feel free to be honest. Go ahead and leave 5 out of 5, or even 4 out of 5... you could even score 3 out of 5... ... If you decided 2 or less out of five may a curse fall upon you and your animals.

Lastly, I scored the film as well. Hope you enjoy!

CLICK HERE TO WATCH, RATE AND REVIEW MY FILM.. PLEAAASE!!!!!

Better than I expected. Good job.

Thanks Doug for taking the time to give it a viewing. If you get a chance sometime this week leave a review!

I am finding it wierd the reaction of people to me participating in the this thing. Very strange... It has nothing to do with liking or disliking the movie. I can take criticism. I have studied underneath the greatest critical tyrants for teachers and have come underneath the greatest scrutinty for creative art by fellow musicians and artists. I can take that stuff and in the end it is all healthy. It is more with people getting used to thinking about a person in a certain way. Or something else. Interesting.

Will blog about it soon.

Excellent! Very artistic. I liked the dream flash sequences.

I don't think you needed to mention about your broken microphone though. You could have just let people think you meant it to be just what it was and no one would have been any the wiser.

Seth Ward said...

Yeah, I shoulda left that out. True. I just felt weird for speaking into that mic and felt it needed the ghetto look explained. It was LAST minute and I almost missed that stipulation in the rules, which would have disqualafied me. That was about 3 in the morning there.

I agree though...

Thanks for watching!

I posted my review under a different pseudonym there... you know, to have lots of street-cred and not look biased and stuff.

"Chaotic Hammer? Hey, I've seen that name before! That guy is one of the film maker's friends, of course he gave it five stars! Not fair!"

Seth Ward said...

C-hammer is just fine with me buddy! Thanks for the reveiw! Yeah, I don't know how it got into Action and Adventure...

When is the last date that we can watch the film? I'm on vacation at my in-laws house this week, and they have dial-up (it also disconnects after a few minutes...hubbie will try to fix that this week). I'd rather watch it at my parents' house on Sunday when I'll have faster internet. Can't wait to see it! I hope you can make a movie with Spielberg!!!
