I’ve been sending Ludlow to reviewers and festivals here and there, and the results are slowly trickling in. It’s strange to put my work out there like this, but…you know. If I don’t do it, then no one will ever see the film and that would be a bit of a waste, to say the least. Criticism doesn’t really bother me- hell, anyone who’s gone to art school or tried to enter the comics field is probably well-versed in rejection and scathing critiques. I certainly am. Not gonna lie, though- I was glad to see that the first real review of the film, over at Theron Neel’s Slammed & Damned, is a positive one.
It would’ve been easy for her to misstep with material this dark and ambiguous, but her stunning visual sense and imaginative approach keep the movie moving forward steadily.
Umm, yeah, I can live with that. Not to mention that his summary of Ludlow is a sight better than mine. I was also glad to see well-deserved shout-outs to Elissa Dowling, composer James Barry, and of course Shannon Lark. This movie was a labor of love for all of us- or, at least, a labor- so it’s nice to get some kudos for all the hard work.Read the rest of the review right here.
I swear, I won’t be posting like this every time I get a review, should I get any more. It’s just…well, it’s the first time and all, and this is my blog, dammit. Besides, what the hell else am I gonna write about? Lunch?
I had spaghetti. See how boring that is?
