My Week in Media

Last Friday I watched David Oyelowo in “Nightingale”. It reminded me, strangely, of a stage performance by Carrie Mulligan in “Through a Glass Darkly”. Different stories and different characters, yeah, but a similarly honest approach to acting mental illness. “Nightingale” was terrifying and brutal. But what made it more troubling was how tender I felt towards the murderous main character.… Read more →

My Month in Media

This month I read A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara.

June 16th – 20th Over the weekend I planned for a short film shoot in Southampton, NY. We held casting sessions, scouted locations, and made floor plans for our shoot day. Later I picked up the book Daily Rituals: How Artists Work on the recommendation of a friend. I’ve been needing some non-academic related reading lately, but even this calls out… Read more →

Dispatches from the Stony Brook Film Scout

 This weekend I spent time at Stony Brook University in Southampton scouting locations for a project I’ll shoot there in July. Together with my classmates from the Digital Filmmaking Program I’ll write, shoot, and edit a short film this summer. First up was casting: It was thrilling to see everyone’s work come alive via a group of talented actors working on camera.… Read more →

Shakespeare in the Park

Sunday marked the opening night of the 52nd year in The Public Theater’s summer tradition of performing classic plays for free in Central Park’s Delacorte Theater. One of this year’s performances is William Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing”, starring Lily Rabe and Hamish Linklater as dueling would-be lovers Beatrice and Benedick. Crowds came early to reserve picnic spots and to enjoy… Read more →
