I'm a 23 year old indie filmmaker who loves to write. I write and direct short films of the art house/drama/documentary/comedic approach. Van Sant, Warhol, and Truffant are my main influences. I also do photography. I love cinema and music. I write about whatever comes to mind. I'm very blunt and honest. I'm not afraid to speak my mind. I bascially write about my daily life like school, what I'm filming, what I'm writing/reading, anything. This medium is perfect for my desired expression. Feel free to read I don't bite :)
Hey guys. I directed this re-enactment of a scene from Lucky Louie. It was Louis C.K.’s sitcom that got cancelled by HBO because they thought it was too vulgar and that it wasn’t funny. I highly disagree. This was part of a class project.
I hope you can watch it, everybody worked hard on it. My classmates were the crew and the actors on screen are professionals, so it’s pretty legit. Enjoy and thanks!
50 years ago, at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, second-in-command Vasilli Arkhipov of the Soviet submarine B-59 refused to agree with his Captain’s order to launch nuclear torpedos against US warships and setting off what might well have been a terminal superpower nuclear war.
The US had been dropping depth charges near the submarine in an attempt to force it to surface, unaware it was carrying nuclear arms. The Soviet officers, who had lost radio contact with Moscow, concluded that World War 3 had begun, and 2 of the officers agreed to ‘blast the warships out of the water’. Arkhipov refused to agree – unanimous consent of 3 officers was required and thanks to him, the world was saved from being scarred badly.
His story is finally being told the BBC is airing a documentary on it.
