Just another weblog


SLIFF 2009.150 Continuing with the theme of 1950's B sci-fi movies first introduced earlier in the summer with the St Louis Filmmakers Showcase, here the UFO-like movie camera lands in presumably a field covered in snow. Meanwhile, some locals investigate matters. I couldn't help breaking from the 50's genre in one way: The boy wearing the Darth Vader mask. I couldn't help myself. I guess he's kind of a portrait of the artist at the age of seven. And the guy standing next to the little boy looks a lot like my grandpa Bert, who did everything he could to help me construct and engineer a time machine, but it never really worked very well.

So now that these commercial projects are completed, I can finally get back to comics....and thank God for that.
