Jared Carmichael, Jim Henson, Daniel discussed on The Film Buds Podcast


Few hour drive. Which not for. I think the. I think they did a great job. I didn't really have any issues on my end. What they basically do. They had windows of time. Were there'd be like three or four films playing and would reserve a pass or whichever one you wanted then when that time came. You know there'd be a chat that would open up and you can talk to all the other festival goers i'm like fifteen ten fifteen minutes prior movie showing movie would premiere just stream. It started. you had like three hour number two not three hours like four hours to to finish it once you press play and then they had a live. Qna which was very cool when they take questions like from the chat and everything so for judaism the black messiah. They had everybody there. Chaka king they had daniel. Gloria they had keyed stanfield. They had dominique fischbach and they even had a friend. Hampton junior tried emden. Sonny was there. He was an adviser on the film. He was there every day on set. It was just a really neat experience. they had like a virtual era area. You can go into like create an avatar and you could join chats like if you went up close enough to see you a chat which basically opened up legs zoom more or less video chat with people Group they had everything you can think of. They pretty much had covered on. It was a very good experience and they had some great movies will besides juice and the black messiah. What were some other ones you saw i saw i saw tun i saw sensor was my first big one which is a person midnight film and that's takes place during the what's called the video nasty era in the uk Which is a very firm. But that's basically. There is a whole debate about violent. Content films books television That we go through. Every couple of decades it feels like and they were strict laws that got put in place in the country so this is about a woman who works on the censorship board and her job she just watches like these god awful like island exploitation films all day and decides whether to ban them outright or whether they have to cut scenes or content in order to pass the ratings board so she gets into like what kind of toll that would take which was really interesting to me with the conversations starting around people that do work for sites like facebook and everything. I'm unlike the mental health toll and the lack of support. That's given to people who to that kind of work. It into like a kind of psychological horror film at the same time. She watches a film that reminds her like a long buried childhood traumatic event and that she searches for the director of the movie at sundown. This whole rabbit hole and everything's so that one was pretty cool. Yeah i saw crypto zoo which was very cool. That's from a writer. And director dash shaw in and that is a feature length animated film for adults. It's all hand-drawn animation which is very impressive. Love that it has. It has lake bell Michael sarah's in it as well. I cannot remember the rest of the cast is incredibly ambitious. Movie globetrotting like action adventure about a world full of cryptic words. So you know like any mythical creature you can think of sasquatch mov man they have like unicorns you know all that kind of stuff but they traded their captured and sold on black markets on. There's a place called the crypto zoo. Which is where is kind of like a sanctuary and it gets into whole bunch of different socio political and moral questions of like you know is a place like crypto zoo. Is it a sanctuary. Is it a prison. Is this the best way to conserve creatures. That don't have a voice for themselves for the most part all that very very cool movie just very unique. Which is what i liked. I really tried to seek out things that that was cool. There is john in the whole. That's got michalski hall in it. That's about a kid who leaves his family in his back and growth about his life and occasionally brings them down food. They like ambiguous kind of almost like abstract has very little dialogue and it mostly just shows this kid going about his days after playing drugging his family and placing them down a of that was definitely interesting conversations about like adolescents and growing up presented in a very creepy and fun way. Sure is just keep going please. There is On the counter three. That's what is his name. Jared carmichael i think i mean did the carmichael show on. Nbc is comedian He wrote and directed this debut feature. Am i really liked this one. It's about two best friends who decide to take each other if because depressed and suicidal in other family film. Another great family film. I'm it's a. It ends up being a dark comedy though. So it's just to you know it's all existential grad. I'm really taps into like the feelings specifically in this country you know over things then takes in a really fun direction. Were they decide. They have like a day of like no consequences. Had they're like we'll do whatever it is we want to do and take care of you know this one last day and then we're going to kill each other and you know it's a little bit absurd. It's very funny. yeah. I liked it. Also obviously the messages. Don't kill yourself but I watched street gang. How we got the sesame street is about the making of sesame street on they focus more on like the producers of the show. I'm normally it. It'd be all jim henson and all that group but it highlights some of the more unsung people that were a huge part the creative of the creation of sesame street Which is always interesting to me. I really am interested in children's programming by there being films or television. Sure so it's neat If you don't know anything about sesame street To me i feel like it didn't offer much new information. That's really my only complain. About a ma'am i guess go. Wild indian was a good one that is about. That's not like inter generational trauma from specifically from white colonisation..
