Here’s another videoblog from 2001. This one was shot in October after a talk Michael Moore did at Trinity University.
[Note for Richard BF: Check out my blue(ish) hair!]
Today I was going through some old files and found this “videoblog” from the summer of 2001. It never actually got posted in a blog post but it was linked on the sidebar of my blog back then. What really suprised me about it was the “spirit” of the piece. It’s very videoblogging.
Today is 5th aniverssary of 9/11 and I, like everyone, morn the nearly 3,000 people who died that day. I also moun that our country has not done something to try to create a climate in the world where this is less likely to happen again. My belief is that not only have we not made things better, we’ve seriously messed things up for a long time to come. So I think it’s appropriate that I post a short that I made back in October 2003 to continue to shine the light on where our President has failed, not only our country, but the whole world. Do you know that 43% of Americans still believe that Saddam Hussein was personally involved in the September 11th terrorist attacks even though the Bush administration has finally admitted that that definitely was not the case?
This piece was done for the 48 Hour Film Project so the orginal version was completely made in 48 hours with these restrictions:
1. We had to use a brick as a prop.
2. Jordan Mooney, professional skateboarder, had to be a character.
3. “Excuse me, I think I love you.” had to be a line of dialog.
In addition, our team had to make a “mocumentary.” So this is our commentary on the Bush administration’s justifications for going to war (WMDs and Iraq’s connection to 9/11). The following January, after Saddam Hussein was captured, I added the little bit about finding 120,000 brick houses. Other than that one addition this is the piece we created in a weekend.
