Approaching the Tyrannosaur Paddock
Nick Folkman - Los Angeles
Currently co-writing Massive Chalice for Double Fine Productions.

Let's talk about storytelling and adventures and films and television and books and photography and cinematography and all kinds of music except country and traveling and how breakfast is the best meal of the day.

I will fight you on that last one.

Hey everyone! I’m heading to Iceland! For two weeks! So I probably won’t be posting for a bit! But when I do, it’ll be great! Because I’ll be putting up some photos/videos from the trip! Though the videos may come later because I’ll have to edit them! But yeah! Iceland! Woo!

"Belligerence certainly helps. And there’s a requisite paranoia. There’s fear—fear of failure—and an overwhelming urge to be liked."
David Fincher on personality traits that help in being a director (via understoodbackwards)

With all the heat Anita Sarkeesian gets for her Tropes series, you’d think it was a new topic, but Gene Siskel & Roger Ebert had a discussion on a similar theme when they were talking about the influx of slasher movies on their show in 1980.

34 years later and this is STILL relevant

This happened before I was born. And yes, still relevant. 

It’s crazy to think this conversation happened in 1980.

"I’m defensive about the word perfectionist, because I think it’s bandied around, like when people say edgy. They’re too fucking lazy to actually come up with a real word. Perfectionist is a polite way of saying compulsive. And I don’t think I’m a perfectionist. That’s a term people use who have no idea how movies get made. This is a ballet with no rehearsal. You can’t rehearse a shoot. You have to come in on the day and perform that dance. And there are so many things that can come between you and the intent."
