Gangster Style

Check out this really good article on Martin Scorsese and his process of making "The Departed".

While he's definitely an old school filmmaker, he is starting to embrace a lot of modern technology like HD dailies and Digital Intermediates. Very good read, although it is fairly technical, it's still very interesting and informative for most folks interested in making films - especially at this level.

There's also a link to a Podcast with him, so check that out too.

BTW, I have not seen "The Departed" yet (or really any new movies recently to be honest), but I plan to very soon.

  • I gotta tell you that I am very anxious for the release of "Hit". I think you have a cult classic in the can. Killing Down shows you have a great eye behind the camera. Looks like a great thriller. Great job. Maybe you can get my uncle Bubba an Oscar! Good luck Blake........Mark Gilliam

    PS. I survived an 8.0 quake in San Fran at the '89 World Series. What a trip! I'm a a Dallas boy too and there ain't no feeling like a quake.

  • Thanks for the kind words. I'll announce the release of "Hit" here sometime soon (I hope). And yeah, earthquakes are NO fun... :)


Who Am I?

I'm a filmmaker who's produced & directed five feature films including the comedy SPILT MILK (available on iTunes), the new horror/thriller PHOBIA (on iTunes) and the action/thiller KILLING DOWN (which you can buy or rent at pretty much all the usual places).

I also created the Streamy and Webby award-winning web series PINK, which to date has been viewed online around 10 MILLION times at places like YouTube, Hulu, Koldcast and And speaking of, I also produced and directed an online thriller for them called EXPOSED. It was released summer 2010. And most recently I created a new online sci-fi series called CONTINUUM, which is part of the online indie TV network - Just The Story and NOW available via VOD through indie platform Distrify.

Oh, and I don't shoot weddings. Thanks for asking though.
