  1. Thanks for taking your time to check out my kickstarter project. I'm trying to raise funds to make the film. If you read the page and are interested, a voluntary contribution could help get it off the ground. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jimipatterson/moder-and-his-one-iota
  2. ahahhahahhhaa. whatreeeee you talking about! that looks done by Industrial Light and Magic!
  3. i didnt put much effort into the shopping... but it was the concept i wanted to put together, if you are good with photoshop. by all means, make one! and share it!
  4. student of objectivism.

  5. http://www.cnn.com/2011/SHOWBIZ/01/04/new.huck.finn.ew/index.html They're removing the "n" word to teach in school. What do you think? I believe compromising Mark Twain's original vision in the interest of meeting public education regulatory standards is wrong.
  6. I agree with what you are saying; and i'll try to clarify. Although I do not hold any excuse; the film is 3 minutes... and I was hoping although it was not expressly obvious... in the future regulation and corporate ownership is rampant and the accepted norm. I tried to convey this with the narration. The individual has NO right whatsoever. So, the principal has to accept a job-- in the case of the short; some field of research. (Much like how things are today. Most people have a hard time CHOOSING their field... its often dictated to them) Once he makes his discovery-- he can't just sit back
  7. I'm sorry you're having trouble hearing. Here is a transcript. NARRATOR November 12th, 2035. As I await my arrest, I write my confession. Most of what you'll hear about me is true. They'll say I'm arrogant, sinful, and uncaring. They'll tell you about my crime: What I've stolen, who i've disobeyed, and how I've disgraced the public. AGNEW You're here, because the committee is taking over your project? FREDERICK No. I'm not going to hand my machine over to a bunch of second-rate looting researchers. NARRATOR This is why I love the man that I am. Because we live in a world upsid
  8. It was not suppose to have been a retelling of the book, or even a reenactment. It was merely in the vein of... I was trying to explore the ideas of over regulation, copyright, and personal integrity as a creative person living by the tenets of Objectivism. I wanted to use an inventor with a machine as the nod to the book. This would be my first attempt in making an "Objectvist" film; on the next execution I will be far more clear so as the viewer can better comprehend the hero's dilemma.
  9. A short film I made for the Atlas Shrugged video competition. There's been some debate over the hero's integrity. I'm glad, seeing as the point of the film was to bring up discussion. I'm curious what you think!
  10. im glad you posted... i've been debating this over and over again for the past few days in my head, and reached this conclusion... but your two examples are spot on; and really inspiring. thanks so much. i guess now, lets make this post a pursuit to seek out the other ideal situations. i want to collect as much data on handling the situations objectively as possible. too much media is focused on the victims and the wrong doers. ill look if you'll look and we can both share examples over the next few days. thanks.
  11. Given the parallels of the over regulation today to correct the current financial crisis (and it being a horribly defunct process indeed;) I was wondering what your thoughts are on the farming epidemic that hobbled rural Amercia in the 80's. Looking at that time in history, and reflecting on it may lead to some answers for the times we live in today... which is why I bring it up. In case you don't know what happened; it was much like what took place in 2007, and 2008 with the housing bubble, but instead it was with an agricultural bubble, so to speak. In the mid 70's the Federal reserve
  12. If you have 3 minutes to spare... I suggest you watch my film; it is also in competition. http://wildfireapp.com/website/6/contests/42465/voteable_entries/12510481
