the film snob

A cyberspace journal about my experiences as an NYU film school grad student, reviews of current and classic films, film and TV news, and the rants and raves of an admitted (and unapologetic) film snob.

Phil Van is a Winner!

Congrats are in order for my friend, New York filmmaker (and NYU grad!), Phil Van.

Phil has just won “Delta's Fly-In Movies” competition beating out five other films. His reward: $10,000 in cash, a pair of round-trip tickets valid for any international location Delta flies, and perhaps best of all, an awards party at the Sundance Film Festival where actor Bobby Cannavale announced his accomplishment before the film was screened.

Fear not, Sundance isn’t the only place to see it. If you’re flying anytime soon, Phil’s film, High Maintenance, will be airing on all of Delta's transcontinental flights through the end of the month.

Click here to watch the film.

That was well done! Short film is such a restrictive medium; very difficult to ever get anything across. But this one seems to do just that.

Watched it. Loved the sci-fi jag to it. I’m totally into robots and androids. I truly think we will have robotic assistants (in EVERY sense of the word) in our daily lives before we see people on Mars.
