Our Mother's House


Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5
Part 6 Part 7 Part 8 Part 9 Part 10
Part 11

Above links are for a bootleg on youtube. Five years ago I started watching this one on tv about 5 minutes into Part 4-- and I was really into it---it's weird and dark, about these kids that pretend their mother is still alive to the outside world so they can all still live together in her house. So I finally got to watch the whole thing last night after I found it posted on youtube. It's really distorted and bad-looking on the internet----which is too bad because its a really atmospheric movie----but whatever-- I love finding these unavailable movies and watching them even though they look terrible.

Ten of Earth

I may have, in the last several weeks, told you (in person or over the phone) about how close I am to posting the first episode of The Heavens. It is very close to being done, but there's still some sound work, some tweaking of the credits, and some improvements in the keying of the footage.

I was talking the other day with someone about how everything gets done when you're doing great work. The dishes are clean. Phone calls are returned. And people are stopping you in the street to tell you that you look like a "solid character." Well I'm not there yet. I don't even have a job. But I did get work done on the Heavens this last week and a half. And I made another intro logo thing...

The Heavens Theme [rough edit]

Heavens Theme [roughedit] by The Watching Patch
While I was visiting some friends we recorded most of the soundtrack for The Heavens in Brooklyn. Here’s a rough version of the Heavens theme song and some photos from the recording session with Ben Simon (closest), Toshio Masuda, and Peter Pearson. As of now most of the work on the Heavens has been done in warehouses or bedrooms. Below: stills from the current edit of Episode 1 “Astronaut Daydreams” ---almost there!
