My First Completed Film: “Nurplex!” (2004)


My mother found the footage of this film stored quietly on a tape and sent it over to me. It was shot some time in 2004, when I was ten, and was intended to be a monster movie in the style of the early Harryhausen features (with a touch of Spielberg).

“From Outer Space Into Your Very Home! The Plastic Monster From 20 Million Miles Away! NURPLEX!”

“Do you realize how interesting this really is, in the way it shows your early grasp of editing and montage? You were a born filmmaker, a prize product of the generation born into a world of video cameras.”

– Roger Ebert to me, after watching ‘Nurplex!’
