Save André Hedetoft

Posted by Martin Vilcans on 14 June 2007

I admire the ambition of some people; the ones who have a clear goal and spend lots of energy on attempting to reach that goal. While people like me flutter around doing a little of this, a little of that, some short film directing here, some software development there and some music there without any clear direction, they have the ability to focus on one specific thing. One of these people is young Swede André Hedetoft. His goal is to become a geek movie director. In the end of 2006 he started recruiting people for his fan club. When he reaches 1000 fans, his plan is to get a tattoo saying Geek Movie Director, and then proceed to become the obvious choice for the director of geek movies (with which he means the likes of Star Wars, The Matrix and Spider Man). He explains it well himself. Of course this is crazy, but I like crazy ideas, so I didn't hesitate to sign up for his fan club. Now a few months later, he released a teaser for his upcoming... well whatever it is he is up to, but it looks cool. It seems to be some Internet-broadcasted movie series. I'm glad that the teaser is well produced and looks very nice (although a bit too much of a ripoff of the Sin City style), so perhaps something really cool can come out of this crazy idea.

In the meantime, I continue to work on too many things at once, lacking focus and ambition to finish anything. At least, that is the way it feels sometimes. Oh well...
