Movie 2 - Shoot first ask questions later


Aidan and I completed another weekend of "skin of the teeth" "sweat of the brow" "seat of the pants" filmmaking. Our first scheduled shoot was scrubbed leaving us with only Sunday and forcing us to retool the script on the fly. I think it came out pretty well considering. And while we were at it I turned 26.

After the release of our first film some of you may have found yourself wondering just what is wankel rotary engine and why did we chose to talk about it in our movie. Let me ease your troubled mind. There is no answer to that second question, but I can assure you the genius of german engineer Felix Wankel is very real. For those of you who haven't bought me a birthday present yet, I'd like one of these. With or without the car...

The Wankel engine- so elegant, 1 rotation per power stroke- it makes me tingle. Too bad that a lot of people like to find old RX-7s, throw out the engine and put big V8s in.

In case anyone is wondering, that animation is the next Anti-Freeze Film.
