Four Eyed Monster

Apparently the makers of this movie, Susan and Arin, amassed credit card debt exceeding the $100,000 that sprout.com will fund: For every person who joins their site through this link, they will donate $1. Now, I can’t see that volume of money in this movie, but from a movie makers perspective I appreciate the time and energy put into this production: the time that is usually occupied by working for someone else. Still, if by joining a web site I help a couple creative people pay their bills and make some money to go make another movie, then I am sure we all have plenty to gain and nothing to lose.

As for the content, I can definitely appreciate the montage/pastiche through which the movie speaks to it’s audience, it highlights how people on myspace and other personal profile sites relate to each other. I recommend this for the fact that this movie speaks to the computer chat generation, and being the first independent youtube production, I hope it inspires many other budding movie makers to do the same.

Oh and I liked the animated sequences, thinking they were reminiscent of a Richard Linklaker production.
