my movie man

February 19, 2013 at 12:37 am 11 comments

Every year, when Oscar season comes knocking on the door, I start thinking about what I might wear—— someday.  I realize I may be jumping the gun quite a bit, but I figure it is never too early to plan.  Right?  I have already nailed down my date, so the only thing left to secure is the wardrobe.  BUT, there is one teensy problem, well a little bigger than teensy – the specific year, the movie and, of course, there is that small detail, most notably – the nomination.   Hey!!  All in good time!

My son Jordan, the aspiring movie director, has been mentioned in many a blog written by me, his dutiful mom, of whom he assures he will be taking to his first Oscar ceremony.   I have been told that I am and will be his first choice of accompaniment.  I realize that I should get this in writing, notarized and, yes, get an attorney’s approval.   No worries, I will.

Jordan graduates high school in a few months and will head off to college where he will be majoring in movie production and business.  I cannot wait to see what he creates and where his imagination and dreams will take him.  He may be out of sight – away from my watchful eyes, but I will be forever his biggest fan and supporter.

So without further ado, and a little help from a fellow blogger (and awesome poet),  I have attached Jordan’s media assignment from last semester.  The criteria – take a film trailer, change the genre, thus in turn creating a different trailer.  He chose the comedy Fun with Dick and Jane – the one which starred Jim Carrey and Tea Leoni – and morphed it into a drama.  He added different music, different effects, edited the film; rearranged the entire piece.  I have attached both trailers below. #1 is the comedy, #2 is the drama.  Enjoy!



COMING SOON:  An assignment involving a music video.  This is the only information I have been given 🙂

    Well done Jordan. What a great project to be assigned.

        Uhhhh – Yes, I forgot to mention the fact that he got an A+. Oops. I cannot wait to see the music video. He takes his time creating – his teacher gives him extensions after extensions – I am thinking, uh oh, he is already starting to think like a movie director:) I will certainly pass your comment along
