    Those were some long, long, long days. Kudos to everyone for staying professional and keeping their eyes on the final product -- as everyone can see, it was well worth it.

    I'm thrilled that everyone gets to see the fruits of their labors so quickly, and that everyone else appreciates it so much.

    Special "boo-yah" to Jack for staying rock-solid steady when it came to his vision. Lesser men would have compromised in many, many areas, but Jack knew what he wanted and didn't settle for anything less -- that's integrity.

    And Mikko, there's a looooot of BTS to follow. Stay tuned.

    We took four days to shoot it. We only have three walls and one door so part of that time was rebuilding and configuring and painting while our extremely tolerant and patient actors waited and waited and waited. I think they "got it" though. They knew we were reaching for something a tad unreasonable given our means and were down to go there with us. They gave everything they had like everyone did.

    Principal photography (for this one) was over three 15-hour nights. We began late afternoon on the 10th finished mid-morning on the 13th. Principal set construction was the 15-hour day BEFORE all that.

The art design, the grading, the cinematography, (that shot of the crack of light piercing through the door was pushing orgasmic). Stylistically beautiful, with a truly well composed and haunting score as subtle backing. The sound effects didn't disappoint either, although the actors could have been somewhat better mic'd. But still, excellent.

    Speaking of actors, these fellows not only looked the part, but did an excellent job as well. Of course, this was certainly assisted by Jack, who has proved himself adept at direction (no doubt assisted by his excellent degree) in every film he's made.

    That said, like seemingly all of JDS's films, I absolutely hated this one. Through and through. It wasn't quite the unmitigated disaster 18 Seconds (again, in my opinion) was, but I'll be a drained freezedried turnip if it wasn't close.

    The writing on display here was: Atrocious. Trite. Silly. Pretentious. And poor. The plot was silly and contrived, the characters bland and completely uninteresting, the dialog almost hysterically cliche, and the ending, completely predictable and banal. Nothing of any interest (by that I mean originality, of course) what-so-ever going on here, and I dare anyone to defend that there was.

    Ohkhay, here's the plot: Lady wants a child. Prays to God. God won't answer. Prays to Satan. Satan Answers. Baby randomly eats people. Woman values Satan baby over husband. The End. Uh-huh.

    If this film is simply a tech-reel, then Bravo, it is indeed fantastic. If this is actually a short film that should be judged artistically and with definite artistic merit-- it fails. Completely and utterly and even more completely and utterly.

    In summary, this film is a prime example of the ever-so-popular style-over-substance that seems to be permeating film making as of late.

    Now, what I would like to see is a JDS film with a solid writer. That could be really fantastic.


    Note: I am not attacking JDS as a director. Only as a writer. He indeed could be an Oscar winning director.

    Good Luck

    Stefan

    obviously you didn't realize this had a time limit of 5 minutes. What did you want in it? The Titanic 2? Zodiac? The Green mile? Forrest Gump? Other classic movies pushing 3 hours?

    Short film is made to be just that, short. Short story, twist ending, and some shocks to keep the film in the viewers mind.

    But all in all i'm saying stay away from MY MAN! Jack I LOVE YOU! In a strictly fatherly son way.
