SHAMO

The whole point of shatter monkey is that the scenes never end.

While Zombeak is in a big hurry to finish, SM will take its time and I want the audience to seep in the scenes.

I picture a tea bag that just slowly clouds the water then darkens the water then overpowers it.

I picture about 8 set pieces; I want a set piece movie like DePalma, prolonged sense of visual story telling.

When you feel like the scene should end, it just keeps going and going and getting worse and worse.

The bad thing about movies is they make every hardship a 30 second montage followed by quick redemption.

The thing about real tragedy is its numbing indifferent presence that lingers and drains you. You wake up it is there until it tucks you away to bed. It is dealt with over long periods. No magic pills.

Thats what I want to convey in the film, the unblinking presence of horror. HA! DAMN the view inside my butt is GREAT today!
