First a Lord of the Rings joke… A short film I’ve wanted to make but doubt I’ll ever get around to is to have a couple walk into a travel agency, sit down, and say “We’re trying to think of someplace romantic for our honeymoon. How about Mordor?”
And then the travel agent would yell, “ONE DOES NOT SIMPLY WALK INTO MORDOR!”
And then the scene would end. I envision it being totally hilarious.
But speaking of travel, I’m off to travel. Until the 27th of August! I’ll be camping, Oregon-ing, spending a day with renowned filmmakers (he’s got stuff in Sundance, won festivals, etc.!), seeing a play in Ashland, visiting some Redwoods and driving a lot.
This is the vacation I have waited all summer far, so I’m quite eager to get started.
I’m going to be gone for six days. I have some things to do when I get back ( a couple shoes, some animation, films) but I want to do something cool, something original.
SOMETHING I CAN GIVE YOU.
I just bought three canvases. Each canvas is 9 x 12.
Here’s the deal.
I want you to suggest to me what to paint. The Top Three most creative ideas will get painted.
One rule, though. It has to combine both Horror (like Zombies, Bogeymen, Vampires, Trolls, the Blob, etc.) and Holiday (big or small, birthdays, Christmas, Valentine’s, 4th of July). Whatever combination you think would be the funniest and most interesting to paint.
And there’s no limit to the number of ideas you can suggest. So if you really want the painting, you can think of a lot of ideas.
Then either leave the idea in a comment here, or if you want some privacy e-mail it to me ( firstname.lastname@example.org ).
Well, what’re you waiting for? My trip’s almost started, and the sooner it starts, the sooner it ends.
Submission ends August 27th at midnight! Go go go!
