Ever since I caught “Bomb the System” on IFC when I was crashing with my parents trying to sort out my life many many years ago. I am now a filmmaker currently working on a documentary. I guess I wanted to give you a shout out to say thanks for inspiring me early on to seek what I wanted to make. It was years later I found out that you were also making documentaries. It was always my goal to be able to go back and forth as a filmmaker between fictional films and documentaries. I think we will finish this current documentary by the end of the year and start submitting to the festivals. I am excited to be pursuing my dreams, or really pursuing my heart is what I should say. “Bomb the System” is a film that always stuck with me. I have literally made all my friends watch it over the years. That is a movie I feel like is mine as a viewer…just with how I connected to it and how it affected me as an artist and encouraged me to want to direct and do cinematography. At the time I was more on the graffiti and artist side of things, but I was really daydreaming all day about filmmaking trying to get to a film school, but could not find the support. Finally technology is to a point where I can go grab a DSLR and film in HD, make the documentaries I have been planning. It feels nice. I will end this here. I saw your message on your site about saying hello and thought man,..I would love to tell this dude how much his work has meant to me. Even today I was re-watching the Carter doc. It has this dream like quality that I have been trying to explain to my current documentary subject, but I am going to make him watch it tomorrow. It is the perfect example to me of a creative documentary. I look forward to whatever project of yours comes out next.
