Best thing that’s happened to you so far this year?
Was on a reality TV show (HGTV’s House Hunters International).
Interview #2 (Flickbox Q’s and My A’s)
Flickbox Question #1
What is your favorite horror movie?
I’m not a “huge” fan horror movies.
So my favorite is probably Crimson Peak (I know that its not “true” horror)
Flickbox Question #2
If you could be a movie bad guy, which one would it be?
Probably Thanos from Marvel Cinematic Universe. He’s like the final boss of a video game.
Flickbox Question #3
Would you let a movie crew film in your house ?
Kind of sort of did that already. Was on a reality TV show (HGTV’s House Hunters International) and a small film crew make a filmed my family and I. There was a camera guy, a sound guy, a director, and the producer of the episode. We had to hit our “landing marks” and do a couple of shoots for just one scene. If lighting was a problem, that had to a more light like a movie crew does. It was pretty awesome.
Flickbox Question #4
What kind of movie would you like to star in ? Why ?
Any movie really, but probably like a large ensemble movie
(something like a Avengers movie or a Ocean’s Eleven film)
Flickbox Question #5
Which movie star should live forever ?
Matt Damon. I like him and usually like his movies.
Flickbox Question #6
Would you like to be an actor/actress ? Why or why not ?
I’m 50 / 50 on this. Yes, it would be thrilling and exciting to be an actor (with money and fame), but that’s only if you (as an actor) make it big. Unknown actors and actresses sometimes live a hard life, struggling to find work in theatrical field. So…its a tossup.
Flickbox Question #7
Do you think movies have been developing technology
or technology has been developing movies ?
I think technology has been developing movies. Advances in computers and graphics and processors help the film industry propel forward in visual effects, practical effects, cinematography, and cameras. Some movies nowadays could not be filmed (or rendered) if they were made 20 years ago.
Flickbox Question #8
If you were to be an actor / actress, which director would you like to work with ? And actor ?
Probably I would work with Steven Spielberg (such a legendary director in Hollywood)
and I would probably like to work with Chris Pratt for the actor.
Flickbox Question #9
Would you rather be in a movie, or be given $500.000 ?
As much as I love movies, I probably would take the $500,00. Although, there’s a lot of variables to consider in that question. What role would I play (major or minor or cameo)? What it did a big motion picture or a indie film? Will it be released globally or premiere at a small film festival?
Flickbox Question #10
Think of a boring movie you’ve seen. Is there a way to make it better ?
Fifty Shades of Grey was a pretty boring movie. How to make it better? Well, basically redo the entire movie. Besides, editing, camera angles, and the musical song selection, the movie is just sloppy. Its lead characters are wooden, its script is literally laughable, and its heightened sexual events are tamed (which quite strange for such a celebrated “erotic” novel. I just didn’t see the fascination with the movie’s presentation. Maybe it these changes are done, the movie could be a tad bit better (but I doubt it).
Flickbox Question #11
Which movie has the best story ? Tell me about it.
Probably Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. If you think about it has the classic archetype storytelling that most fantasy novels and epic films follow. The destitute lad, the wizen sage, the swashbuckler / gunslinger hero, the princess, the sidekicks, the evil empire. Those are all common elements that are usually found in classic storytelling. Even how the narrative works (if you look at Episode IV to VI) fits the “Hero’s Journey” from Joseph Campbell.
