I’ve been having internet problems yesterday and today with AOL acting up and not wanting to connect and my IE crawling slowly onto websites so I apologize for the lack of updates or responding to any messages sent to me.
Thanks to Fraz for this :)
SO YOU SAY YOU’RE PRETTY HAPPY WITH YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW …
BUT WHAT YOU REALLY WANT TO DO IS DIRECT.
WELL, NOW YOU CAN, THANKS TO THE NEW “ABSOLUT DIRECTOR” WEBSITE.
IT’S FROM THE MAKERS OF “ABSOLUT VODKA.”
LOG ON, AND YOU CAN WRITE DIALOGUE, EDIT SCENES … EVEN GET THE CHARACTERS TO TALK TO EACH OTHER.
THE WEBSITE’S FIRST MOVIE PREMIERED IN NEW YORK CITY … AND THE PARTY DREW SOME PRETTY BIG NAMES.
LEE says: “It can be used as a learning tool. Most people say they can’t afford to make a film. But now anybody can make a movie … anybody.”
SOME FAMOUS ON-SCREEN FACES WERE ALSO THERE TO TRY THEIR HAND BEHIND THE SCENES … INCLUDING “ROSWELL” ACTRESS SHIRI APPLEBY AND “THE SOPRANOS” JASON CERBONE.
CERBONE says: “I never thought I’d get to direct, but I’d like to try it. Now I can do it at home without all my friends or anybody else seeing how bad my first movie would be.”
ON THE WEBSITE, THE “DIRECTOR” CAN SELECT AND RE-SEQUENCE MORE THAN THIRTY-FIVE CLIPS FROM A 19-60’S JAPANESE SCI-FI MOVIE.
THEY CAN ALSO WRITE THEIR OWN DIALOGUE, CHOOSE A COMPUTERIZED VOICE, AND PICK MUSIC CLIPS.
“ABSOLUT DIRECTOR” EVEN OFFERS TIPS ON HOW TO MAKE A BETTER MOVIE … EACH “FILM” CAN LAST FROM THIRTY SECONDS TO FIVE MINUTES.
AND IF YOUR FRIENDS CAN’T COME TO THE BIG PREMIERE OF YOUR MOVIE … YOU CAN JUST SEND IT TO THEM, VIA EMAIL.
TO TRY IT OUT, LOG ON TO W-W-W-DOT-ABSOLUT-DIRECTOR-DOT-COM.
