Written on A music video for Big D and the Kid's Table's "Strictly Rude":

Nice use of the intervalometer. Really beautiful. I also enjoyed the interspersing of shots of Knoxville with Manhattan. Somehow the JFG sign fit right into the metropolitan montage. The song, while having a very Ska rhythm and tone, did not seem out of place with the rather un-Caribbean images. The "hollow" sound of the music complemented the very urban, yet very lonely, footage.

I had a chance to work with Chris on some commercials recently and hope to have a chance to do it him again. More likely, I will be working for him next time.

Written on A PSA about Art created by Knoxville Films.:

Michael said it better than I could have. I do know these guys (Knoxville is a pretty small production community) and have followed them since their original iWeb site.

My reaction, in part, was due to the "horribly cheese" comment. Michael is right, if you don't like it, that's fine. Knoxville Films is trying to do something good but you can't please all the people all the time.

I wish you the best of days, as well.

Written on A PSA about Art created by Knoxville Films.:

1. Yes I watched the video, you obviously did not.

2. Knoxville Films (if you have seen any of the ads in the print edition of MP) is curating this very video gallery along with Metro Pulse. They also created all of the Dinner For 2 episodes in the gallery. I watched every one of them when they were available on iTunes. Check 'em out sometime. They are all about East Tennessee artists, musicians and filmmakers.

3. If I'm not mistaken, "Art" is played by writer/director, Brooks Benjamin. I think his indie-feature "The Boys of Summerville" premiered at Regal Downtown West a few weeks ago.

4. "No, they are trying to bring attention to some website..."

The website is all about artists and their work. It is run by a couple of area filmmakers, for no money, because they want to help bring positive attention to the arts in this area.

KnoxvilleFilms.com is the address of Knoxville Films.

Knoxville Films is a few people trying to do something noble.

What a great PSA! I hope the Knoxville Films guys create more of these. It's nice to see that someone cares about artists in East Tennessee. These folks are trying to bring attention to our artistic community.

Imagine what they could do with a budget.
