"footage of a diner, or a girl's rock collection, where nothing happens -- that's not a movie. nor is it art. it's just lowering the bar so you and lucas mcnelly and amir can step over it.
stop giving REAL indie filmmakers who put in the REAL work a bad name."
So I guess they believe that they are the "REAL" indie filmmakers, except no one pays attention to them or their movie because they are too real. Poor babies. Or it could be that Sarti & Sheinkopf are incredibly annoying & whiny, and because of that no one wants to have much to do with them. They leave hate-lite comments on my blogs a few times a month. A habit that started when I decided to not write about their masterpiece's premiere a few months back. Their movie might be good, who knows, but I didn't want to have any more contact with a couple of highly annoying first time filmmakers who felt their work was better than that of, according to them, "over-hyped" filmmakers such as "Jarmusch, Spike Lee, & David Lynch" (they told me this at a coffee meeting I was unwise enough to have with them, when I was thinking about checking out & writing about their movie - that was before I discovered their generally toxic personalities). I guess me, Amir & McNelly are in good company when it comes to the list of filmmakers that the "Jerks" do not like.
Sarti & Sheinkopf's obsession with my blog (one or both of them seem to read & re-read this blog quite often), I guess, is flattering in a way - because I think they see my filmmaking work & blogging as some kind of a threat to their indie filmmaking careers. Didn't know I was so powerful :) But ultimately, the duo comes off as incredibly pathetic. Theirs is NOT the way to get publicity. Yes, they are getting some publicity just by me writing about them here right now, but this is not the kind of publicity novice & generally unknown indie filmmakers want, since this is very much a positive relationship based scene/industry. And if they continue with their annoying comments, I might share the most entertaining of them, with commentary, with the readers of this blog in the near future (I've got over 6 months worth of their annoying comments saved up). Perhaps Hate Mail can be a monthly feature at this blog.
Also, they threaten to come down & disrupt my 2/13 screening. Looking forward to kicking the jerks out if they show up.
