The Western

I had wanted to make something that could play a festival.  All my films had been too long to be easily programmed, and my tendency to always want to do things I haven’t done before meant that I had never completely nailed a film.  I decided to stick to what I was good at and try to keep something around ten minutes.

The Western is the result.  It turns out what I thought I was good at is pretty weird.  Personification, scraps of poetry for dialog, surreal imagery, and a bit of blood. 

My goal to play a festival was successful too.  The Western played South Texas Underground Film festival in their inaugural year.   I suspect I could have played more, but never put much time or money into pursuing things.  Instead I had set out to make the Three Sisters project, of which only two parts were ever finished.
