Jake Kath is my name and shitting around is my game! I’ve been a movie buff since I was twelve after I watched Annie Hall for the first time. That movie floored me because I didn’t know that movies could tell a story any fucking way it wanted to and also, be a form of expression.
I’ve been told my taste is pretty radical and absurd but I normally have a reason why I love or hate a movie.
My favorite filmmaker is Guy Maddin. His movies embody everything I love about cinema and they inspire me to make my own movies. His movies are exciting, playful, dramatic, funny as fuck, and are completely audacious. He’s a punk filmmaker to the core. He doesn’t give a fuck on what type of camera he uses or how his sets can look homemade because its part of his aesthetic. The conventional flaws to his movies are what separates him. There’s a lot of spirit to his movies that I wished more filmmakers would hone in on!
I’m currently studying filmmaking/animation at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. After school, I aim to work within the industry and probably, will end up working television which sounds perfect to me.
I’m generally a friendly person. So, don’t be a stranger and say hi some time.
Thanks, have a lovely night/day/week/month/year/decade/century/life.
