11:46 am
and so is this extends. to continue to. keep you. know he says films are a kind of dream sequence of sampled quotations the resulting thoughts are obscure if. you are good me. my body isn't ready my god do you want to know who says latest works god they look so good look at this blue. my body isn't me. how much are they i bet for $129.00 before be on mel who's even knows where he's going with the video he creates the soundtrack taking scraps of dialog or music gleaned from films t.v. shows pop songs and weaving them together like a composer. he's got to storyboards for his films at the same time he edits the
11:47 am
audio tracks and he's been at it for around 3 decades. has just come in. and told that line. john did not. tell goodlatte. and from her says rather silly starts his films are getting more and more political anybody could when he body away. joins me now with his real voice thank you for coming in i should mention you go. an expression currently on here and it goes till next every so anybody interested they should look at my website for more details now you feature in all your videos as we've seen is this is this practical. you know you know. it's inexpensive is there a deeper meaning do you just like dressing up i think all the faith all the faith
11:48 am
it's practical i like this thing up but it is also really important because it's just the role play and if you if you have actresses or actors in these roles they're still the actresses and actors but this are just the roles and that's really really important to have the same guy as an animal as a man as a woman as every everyone and maybe your the only person who understands it all in the seeing some of your films they tell a story but sometimes it's hard to know quite well the story is if you don't mind me saying is that deliberate do you want us to make our own interpretations of what you're doing or do you have a. particular message i think the story is most of the times by obvious from my perspective and but it's maybe not easy it's not an easy story and it makes you think and i really like to make people think and to go deeper and think about what they see and not just consume moving images. and you address
11:49 am
a lot of serious subjects social issues for instance but also with a lot of humor and i wonder is that because you like to do that or is that she does not actually give you a strong meaning and i think humor a good sense of humor is really really important in telling also sad things tragic things in our society and through humor you can you can get more powerful more emotional and you can reach people much better through you. and it's not a constant with you always humor with it i've only seen things that have humor in them i mean of course aids most this kind of humor is tragic comical so there is always a certain kind of tragedy sadness in this in this kind of humor and i think really humor is a very serious thing to communicate and and even the very sad things that we live
11:50 am
in our life and that we have to go through with it one of us and it's not getting better these days no you. know i have to sit in here 3 hours of television what do you hate about the media you say the media angers you why particular what's particularly makes your angry about the media i think sometimes it can be very brainwashing and mean i grew up with television now we have different kind of media we have social media we have all kinds of and it is keeps us busy like most people i there are like jumping. and they are kept busy aand. losing their own presence and there are some wells they are not present anymore i mean it's changed course you're still making video but this is changed enormously since you started i mean it's just completely turned on its head with social media i mean
