    Kirby is keeping it real – this went pretty fast – i want 10 more minutes .

  2. Foamy Squirrel says:

    This doesn’t appear to be the same preview picture from when you first uploaded – someone contact you and ask to change?

  3. David Poland says:

    no, Foamy… YouTube only offers 3 screenshots. When I looked at the one that posted, I went in and picked another… takes time for it to be changed.

    This one’s better, no?

  4. Foamy Squirrel says:

    Much better. But being contacted by PR agents is also a better narrative. ;)

  5. sanj says:

    people sure notice the minor things – like the first 10 seconds there is something on the ceiling but nobody knows

    this could have been shot outside – you were 5 seconds away
    from that window.

    Great interview – she’s holding onto some serious starpower. I hope she’s given the chance.

  7. sanj says:

    she got feature in Maxim magazine – the girls of Project X
    its not that risky …

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK

    AT

    HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER.

    The only flaw in the magical Project X is that kid has THIS chick as his BEST FRIEND but doesn’t seem to notice for half the movie?

    Am I the only one having flashbacks to 1988 when I’m looking at some new actress from a movie called Dangerous Liaisons?

DEADLINE: How does a visualist feel about people watching your films on a phone or VOD?
REFN: It depends on what kind of movie you make. We had great success with Only God Forgives on multiple platforms in the U.S. Young people will decide how they see it, when they want to see it. Don’t try to fight it. Embrace it. That’s a wonderful opportunity. We’re at the most exciting time since the invention of the wheel, in terms of creativity because distribution and accessibility have changed everything. A camera is still a camera whether it’s digital or not; there’s still sound; an actor is an actor. Ninety-nine percent of what you do is going to be seen on a smart phone – I know this is the greatest thing ever made because it allows people to choose, watching what you do on this format or go into a theater and see it on a screen. That means more people than ever will see what I do, which is personally satisfying in terms of vanity. But you have to be able to adapt, to accept things in different order and length than we’re used to. We are in a very, very exciting time.

DEADLINE: You mention Tarantino, who with Christopher Nolan and a few other giants, saved film stock from extinction. To him, showing a digital film in a theater is the equivalent of watching TV in public. Make an argument for why digital is a good film making canvas.
REFN: Costwise, it’s a very effective way for young people to start making movies. You can make your movie on an iPhone. It’s wonderful seeing how my own children use technology to enhance creativity. For me it’s a wonderful canvas. Sure, I love grain in film. I love celluloid. But I also like creativity. I like crayons, I like pencils, I like paint. It’s all relative. Technology is more inclusive. A hundred years ago when film was invented, it was an elitist club. Very few people got to make it, very few people controlled it and very few people owned it. A hundred years later, storytelling through images is everyone’s domain. It’s ultimate capitalism. There are no rules, and no barriers and no Hays Code. Where does this go in another hundred years? I don’t know but I would love to see it.
