CHARACTER OF THE WEEK - Dave: Writing + Casting 🌲
Dave is not so secretly one of my favorite characters. And I'm not alone in that - a lot of people have said, "Oh my gosh, the brother!" I think it has to do with his silence and the presence that comes from the wonderful Evan Board who plays him. 🌲
Dave is actually much closer to how I understand the processing of grief. It's quiet and internal. You're often just aching by yourself. I wrote June specifically to be a much louder, more outgoing person than I am because, well, that's just more interesting in a movie (not always, but for this one, yes). But I think we feel Dave's pain almost more sometimes because you can feel what he's not expressing. 🌲
His arc is the smallest of all the characters. He basically just wants to get stoned with his sister. The end. He wants to hang out, to connect. And that's enough for him for now. He's getting by. 🌲
Casting Evan Board was surprising & delightful. We had written up a notice on Facebook to see if we had any connection to guys that were maybe 20 but looked 17. One friend recommended Evan (who actually was 17 at the time) and I stalked him and thought he might be too blonde (we have darker haired parents in this movie) but we decided we'd read with him anyway through Skype (he was in Door County, we were in LA). 🌲
He was immediately perfect and totally directable and awesome, but what Chris and I remember most was that we mentioned our love of the Duplass brothers and he told us he had the DVD for Jeff, Who Lives at Home in his room. Chris and I got off the call and freaked out over how awesome he was. The kid's goin places. And the rest is history. 🌲

Not technically my first film. My first was in high school, I think I was 15, and cameras were huge bulky things carrying VHS tapes. I remember thinking I wanted to create a shot that had never been seen, a camera angle that I had never come across. I don’t remember if I came up with one as the film is sitting on a tape somewhere and I haven’t seen it since.
My second attempt at a film is this, in 2012. I watched it yesterday and realised how much I was experimenting. I didn’t care about what was ‘technically’ a good shot. If I did something by accident and it looked cool I put it in. I think we need to keep a little of this attitude even when we think we know better. Even when we’ve learned ‘technically’ how to do something we should allow ourselves to make mistakes and fuck around with the camera or the word or whatever it is you use to create. Go outside the margins. Follow your creative urges. Get good at something and then remember to fuck up once in a while.
Starts this Friday July 20: Lauren Greenfield’s documentary GENERATION WEALTH 💸 (with Q&A with the director Fri 7/20 @ 7:30pm) 🔅 QUEEN OF VERSAILLES filmmaker Lauren Greenfield examines materialism, celebrity culture, and social status and reflects on the desire to be wealthy at any cost. This visual history of the growing obsession with wealth uses first-person interviews in Los Angeles, Moscow, Dubai, China and around the world to bear witness to the global boom-and-bust economy and document its complicated consequences. ________________________ @amazonstudios @greenfield_lauren @genwealthmovie

Holy shit! That's our tiny baby movie @junefallingdown on DVD. CAN YOU HANDLE IT?? 🌿
For the next few days, I will be packing these babies up and shipping them out. And I will be pushing like crazy for everybody to pre-order the movie on iTunes! 🌿
It's all very surreal and I'm curious about how I'll feel once the movie is out (somehow the word "free" comes to mind). It's been a long process, an incredible real life film school, and I am very ready to move forward, but wow, what a ride it's been. 🌿
Ps- herlooo - get the movie on iTunes/on DVD here: junefallingdown.com/watch 🌿
Leave No Trace, directed by Debra Granik, is a deeply moving story about a dad and his daughter living isolated from society in the forests of public parks. The quietness of this film enhances the emotional connection between the father, the daughter, and the audience. It’s a profound example of how our tragedies stay close to us when we often find them too harsh to face, and the lengths we go to shelter our loved ones from the world that is capable of taking away so much from us. Very true, simple, and realistic storytelling accompanied by ethereal cinematography, phenomenal acting from both Ben Foster and Thomasin McKenzie, and probably a lot of tears. So far, one of my favorite films this year.

There’s a chance you’ll watch this week’s film @bombshelldoc using technology that its subject invented. "Hollywood star Hedy Lamarr was known as the world’s most beautiful woman – Snow White and Cat Woman were both based on her iconic look. However, her arresting looks and glamorous life stood in the way of her being given the credit she deserved as an ingenious inventor whose pioneering work helped revolutionize modern communication. Mislabeled as “just another pretty face,” Hedy’s true legacy is that of a technological trailblazer. She was an Austrian-Jewish emigre who invented a covert communication system to try and help defeat the Nazis, then gave her patent to the Navy, but was ignored and told to sell kisses for war bonds instead." Trailer in bio but it's a little boring so skip it and watch the film based on the incredible life story it reveals.
Available on Netflix. .
