So I recently stopped by man Keith Davis' website (which is located in the blogroll. I highly suggest that you check it out. Its a dope site.) and came across a post detailing Jim Jarmusch's five rules of filmmaking. I won't go into the details of all the rules, but there was something that struck a chord with me. Jarmusch mentions that the PA holding up traffic for you to get your shot is every bit as important as the director, the director of photography or the AD. And anyone who had an ego large enough to not understand this should be held upside down by their ankles left wondering why the sky is upside down. I couldn't agree more with this statement.
So with Osvaldo's set to make its world premiere this week I wanted to send a sincere thank you to everyone who made this film possible whether you were cast, crew, support, sounding board, vendor or hater. It means a lot to me that all of you were willing to either help create my vision or at least be engaged with it to some degree. I appreciate it more than you can imagine. Here is the cast and crew list of the film. I wanted to make sure that these hard working individuals were recognized...
