I little while back I attended the private screening of Arthur, a short film directed by John Jacobsen. First, a couple words about John... John is an elegant, inspiring, humorous, hardworking, lovely, creative man who's "always live well" motto in life has inspired me in my life and travels. He was my acting coach from the time I was 18 until I moved to Los Angeles at 22. He really taught me the foundation of my acting technique that I use for every audition, scene and role I encounter. When I saw that John had directed a short film and was holding a screening, I was excited to see what he had put together. Here are the notes I jotted down during the nine minute short film: saturated, gorgeous depth of field, magical, Where the Wild Things Are, threatening, lonliness filled by imagination, complex, surprising. That's a lot of adjectives for one lil' movie! I don't want to say much about the film itself because it would be easy to give it all away. Arthur is screnning this weekend at the Seattle International Film Festival. If you're in Seattle you really should attend!
