Favor March is taking all my energy!

Howdy,

Finally I’m starting the last project of Favor March, even though we are already in April.

So Favor March included 5 music videos, and I already did 4! Woo-hoo!

And tomorrow we start the last one. Today I need to sleep reaaaaaaaally early, to have enough energy. A weekend with two 12-hour shoots + 1 hour of lunch on each.

But it needs to be done. The crew is good. The cast ¬†too. And when it ends, I’ll be able to come back to my Llama Blogger life!

See you soon, muchachos! ūüėČ

10 Cloverfield Lane – Review

You know when you go to the barbershop, and you thing: “Wow! This time he got it! My hair is perfect!” But two minutes later your hair is completely ruined for no logical reason? This is how I felt after watching this film. Do you wanna know why? Keep reading.

If we divide the movie in 3 parts (3 acts), I can say that the second one is by far its best. Act 1 moved super slow, even though the intro was marvelous, the way they presented the opening credits, they deserve a llama kiss. But between the intro, and the Act 2, stuff didn’t move at all. However, Act 2 came kicking ass, making me wish that Act 3 never existed, because wow, everything was in perfect motion. The cinematographer made the rights choices, the score was working right, which in the beginning of the film, felt kinda forced, and the director probably gave John Goodman the right directions, because he was just doing his job perfectly, I was really impressed. I started disliking¬†John Goodman after the horrible The Gambler (2014), but this made me like him again, like I did when I watched The Big Lebowski (1998).

Okay, everything was going four-stars until this point, but they had to destroy a beautiful piece of art, making Act 3 its biggest mistake. I’ll spoil the hell out of this movie, so if you are not ready to step forward, my brave warrior, don’t go beyond this point.

Oh my goodness! Why did they make the mistake of showing what happens to¬†Mary Elizabeth Winstead after she leaves the bunker? Showing the stupid alien, and ripping off War of the Worlds (the birds are fine with all this mess going on, the design on the monster ship is similar, and the way she destroys it is almost identical to how Tom Cruise blows the tripod from its inside) completely ruined the movie. If it wasn’t bad enough, the final sequence is a big pile of crap that tried to make its audience hopeful or aware that there will be a sequel.

Disappointed is a great word to describe how I felt after the final credits appeared on the screen.

I don’t know what to do!

Howdy!

Just got home after a full day! (Actually, it has been a few hours since I put my llama body inside my house)

I’m almost giving up on trying to learn how to use ProTools, it is way too complicated. The amount audio tracks in a film is overwhelming. That’s why I always hire sound people, because they don’t only know it, but they enjoy it.

But the day got better, even though my lunch costed me $15, it included a SUSHI BURRITO! AND IT WAS CALLED A SUPERMAN BURRITO! It was delicious, EVEN THOUGH I’ve ordered my burrito with no avocado, but guess what, people in California cannot do stuff without avocado. ūüė¶

I also had a consultation with my mentor, and it went truthful, but horrible. He told something I need to hear: I don’t love this movie, I’m not honest with this. But now, I have no clue of what I’m doing with it. I can’t have a good idea, I have a billion of others things to do and because of me being a stupid Llama, I even discussed with my beautiful Brazilian Llamarina. Argh. I wish I was not attached on Favor March.

And last, but not least, the same friend who did the Llama pixel art face for this blog, created a character inspired on me, which in featured in his new NeonMob series: Pixel Wars! Get some promo packs here: https://www.neonmob.com/redeem/NICHOLAS903

Oh, and for some reason, I can access my blog through every platform ever, except my computer. I’m frustrated!

I already had a good nap, but that haven’t helped me at all. And unfortunately I had to turn down TWO invitations to watch Zootopia tonight. So, I need to make this night worth it!

Expect at least one more post today.

I’ll see you soon, muchachos! ūüėČ
