My last Wired4Film.com post, my first DavidAcuff.com post
What a ride! In January-ish of 2009 I launched a little blog-a-zine I named “Wired4Film.” With an Article/Tongue-in-cheek-Prayer from Josh Bell which began “Dear Lord, why must Your most ardent followers unleash such bad movies in Your name?” and a companion piece I wrote called “Christian Film Wake-Up Call” relating Christian films to Porn, I burst onto the Faith-based Film scene. Yes, like a Caped Pirate Crusader (what?), I swashbuckled my words about, skewering the twin bastions of Cinematic evil: Mediocrity and Kirk Cameron. I’ve learned a lot in the last six years. In no particular order: Anyone who finishes making a movie should be ...
EXCLUSIVE: Alex Buono’s Visual Storytelling Tour 2
Some of you -- the fortunate ones -- are familiar with our SNL Film Unit friend Alex Buono. He's not just a Camera Nerd, he's pretty much the Jackie Chan of Cinematography and regularly jujitsus impossible lighting situations until they tap out. Using whatever tools he can find laying around the room or home depot or AbelCine, he will lit'rally bend light to his will. It's pretty magical to behold. He's shot feature films, docs, commercials and TV. And way, way back in the day he was a camera assistant to legendary ASC cinematographers like Conrad Hall, Dean Cundey and John Schwartzman. Two years ago, in a Ya-Ya Sisterhood of the ...
INTERVIEW: The Siren Call of the Harp Twin Revolution
Megasigh. So, occasionally we film-journalist-documentarian-types have to cover the difficult stories. To take one for the team. To film the International Student Ministry...in Hawaii. To Edit together the demo reel...of a world class Eco Model. Today, doggone it, we had to do it again. We had to grudgingly conduct an interview with Camille and Kennerly Kitt a.k.a. The Harp Twins. They are musicians, they are actors, they make Music Videos for their very popular YouTube Channel...and they are third degree black belts. What's not to love? W4F: Camille and Kennerly. Welcome. Let me start here: Why. The. Harp. What ...
DIRECTOR DIARIES: Chris Hansen’s LA Film Premiere
By Chris Hansen My Film Opened in L.A. and all I got was this lousy bacterial infection… Actually, I didn’t get the bacterial infection from L.A. I picked it up several weeks before my L.A. trip, and I thought it was most likely food poisoning or something like that. So I gritted it out for a few weeks, figuring it’d go away, all the while my wife pestering me to see a doctor. WEDNESDAY Finally, two days before I was supposed to get on the plane, I broke down and saw the doctor. He diagnosed a bacterial infection that needed to be treated with ...
Don’t Quit. Don’t Ever Quit.
CULVER CITY, CA - Probably hadn't seen Cristóbal Krusen in 10 years. At least. That was back when he was finishing up "Final Solution" and I was finishing up a Master's Degree at Regent University when our paths first crossed. So, very understandably, we had a lot of catching up to do and the best place to do that was at the S&W Country Diner in Culver City. Delicious. We sat there solving all the world's problems when the conversation took a turn and went a little deeper. See, as a filmmaker with 5 or 6 Features under his belt, Cris knows how ...
