Bader

I clicked on this expecting the videos to be as unthought of as its banner..
Exhibit A
  
..and I hold good news. They're not. I was particularly impressed by two entries.. the rest either useless or too boring. Click on the horrendous image to cast your vote.. I think cheating makes card games way cooler than they really are SO .. here we go, I'm cheating with the videos I want you to vote for. Ok, you can like other things - but then, you're just too bleh. I love you anyways. Whatever.



N.B. Film-making in Lebanon needs a push, ok? 
P.S. You're free to do whatever you want.

Major MEH at that movie tbh.. didn't get what they're trying to say.

Draw me a song is much more interesting.. and the photography one is cool as well..

yea well, it's a trailer. i voted for them because among the other ones i found interesting, they need the cash to finish it up and release it, i would want to see that happen.

I believe 2 minutes to describe a project is not enough. So i will share with you a little bit of their 20 minutes presentation that I have seen.
I am a filmmaker and photographer. So, your choices and reasons made me really curious...

Out Loud:
A 600 000$ movie budget funded by the director himself and family supporters...
There are enough finishing funds for movies. Try Sundance, or Tribeca Film festival etc. Professional movies apply to MOVIE funds...
He pays 600 000$ but he really needs to take those 10k from someone who really needs them?
There are enough movies getting made in this country considering our population. And their funding sources are many. European co-productions are blooming. Lebanese filmmakers are winning awards all over the world every year...
For a movie, to consider such a fund tells a lot about its production strategy. Its sad...
Out Loud's trailer is a 'horrendous' abomination! Technically, and creatively...
Have you seen the director's previous and latest and only work? 'Finding Interest' done in 1994?

They will finish this movie without Bader's cash... they're in post-production in the States.

Draw me a song is not 'words that pop up as they're being sung'.
The animation was just used to make the posters and illustrations alive. But you failed to get past the words being sung. It's like you're stuck and that's why you're the one who needs the 'push'...

This link should show you why her concept is way more popular than all the other projects will be ;)
Posters, Mugs, Handbags etc...
Draw me a song is about products using song lyrics.
Her art caught the interest of band artists themselves from Prodigy to Nirvana or White Stripes...
And here you are, disrespecting a true artist with your 'horrendous' ignorance.
You seriously have nooo idea what you're talking about!

Considering that you actually watched the trailer and upon that decided to vote for OUT LOUD, its sad that your opinion made a big deal out it...

Congrats, you got 3 comments on your 'horrendous' blog post :)
