I had originally planned to record and release a commentary for my short film, Earrings, a few weeks after I put the movie online. Then indifference kicked in.
There’s this weird thing that happens after you create something. You move on from it, possibly even before it’s done. I’m better off speaking strictly for myself here, but by the time Earrings was released online, I had all but considered it a thing of the past. I acknowledged its completion and was happy and ready to move on. This isn’t to say I’m not proud of it. It is as accurate a reflection of my vision as I hoped to achieve, and I am continually humbled by the kind words people have lent toward it.
The point of all this is: when Earrings was done, it was done. It was time for me to share it, and subtly step away. A few weeks ago, I got the urge to record my thoughts about the film via a director’s commentary. I think (...hope) I’ve kept the track equal parts entertaining, technical, and informative. I surely hope those interested enjoy listening to it. If nothing else, the track is a perfect verbal documentation into one of my life’s most beautiful dark twisted fantasies.
Here’s the film with my commentary:
