Angels vs. Women Pt. 2

This was the follow-up teaser we shot for the exorcist series that got us into Mel Gibson's office. It was actually this little teaser, which was more polished and such, that didn't go over very well.

Mr. Gibson liked the first teaser but neither Mel nor Steve McEveety, his producer, liked this one. Take a look: video

Eve in Paradise

This is the latest piece of concept art for the film I'm going to produce...one day. Admit it; you want to go back to Paradise.

Grace... Kelly


Probably the classiest dame ever put on film:

Why Hate Women - Redux

One of my contacts who reads my blog pointed out that the last post was incomplete and unhelpful...I did not link it to Satan enough for him, or the ANGELS vs. WOMEN thing.

As noted a few posts back, I said that "light does not fall on this (beauty) from above and from outside, rather it breaks forth from the...interior." With the idea that beauty is not purely subjective (...in the eyes of the beholder...) but objective, it makes sense that God created Woman with external beauty as an outward sign of inward reality: she is a window to God.

And since God is so far beyond our comprehension, Uncreated Beauty, the closest thing we have to our Maker on earth is Woman:

Why hate women?

(storyboard from a film I'm developing...)

"Don't hate me because I'm beautiful." Do you remember that ad line? I think it was a hair commercial or make-up or something. Why would something be hateful if it was beautiful? Jealousy.
...the personal comparison with another, more "beautiful" than yourself? Note that must mean beauty is recognizable, has a quantifiable nature (more or less beautiful) and that some beings are favored with great beauty, and we can see it intuitively and objectively.

Jealousy can lead to insecurity, loss of self-esteem, anxiety, fear...anger, violence, murder. That little green-eyed monster exists, potentially, in all of us.
"EVE ENCHANTED" by Carrie Wachsmann

But Beauty also leads to desire, which leads to action, which leads to discovery and adventure...these are the qualities that make beauty so powerful and valuable - and the key to understanding why a beautiful woman can stop traffic, turn heads, drive others mad through jealousy, unto rage and even death.

And to think that God made Eve that way BEFORE she ate the forbidden fruit.

"Beauty, thy name is Woman" - Pt. 3

Angels vs. Women: ROUND ONE!

Check out these images from a film I was developing. Nitrogen Studios provided the artist for these concept drawings of Lucifer, the Prince of the Angels, before he saw a woman......and after he freaked out and rebelled against God and tried to kill everybody and everything out of jealousy...
...here's another view....
Silly Moron. Nobody beats God.

Intermission: The Greta Garbo Demo

The little film here was a teaser/screen test for the actress, Yelena Popovic. She and another writer friend of mine wrote a script about Greta Garbo, and I produced this along with some other guys.
Yelena has this incredible resemblance to the late film icon, Greta Garbo. Judge for yourself:
