CrowdSourcing ‘Pick of the Week’ – Sin Matador


Sin Matador – The new comedy by Zack Carver

New Yorkers, remember the pain you went through swimming like a fish in the New York City waters? First there’s looking for the ideal place to call home among a plethora of cramped yet overpriced living quarters. Then you have to fork out a broker’s fee, first and last month’s rent and a security deposit before you move in. Once you do settle in there’s the daily regiment of hiking up six floors carrying ten bags of groceries! NYC is also quite lonely. Time must be invested in meeting people to build a new circle of friends not knowing how long they will stay in your life, kissing frogs trying to find a prince and having sex with strangers along the way.

Let’s not forget about some of the other complexities of city life. Finding your way throughout a complex city grid, listening to a distraught mother scream at her children, working long hours when you’d rather be doing something fun or adventurous, having the sounds of a saxophone drowned out by the wooing of sirens, and on and on. But then there’s the other side of city life – the blending of cultures, the twinkling of lights, the wonderful smell of street vendors and the endless choices of entertainment options.

That’s what makes New York what it is, love and hate, like an obsessive relationship with an abusive boyfriend. Nothing beats that feeling like you’re walking through a movie when you walk the streets. This is New York City and you’re so happy to be here and in the end that’s what really matters.

Yes, you New Yorker!!! If you have found yourself in any of the above mentioned situations, this message is for you. Support this group of creative filmmakers’ project if you want to laugh with other New Yorkers about how to swim like a fish in the big city waters.

Interview: Christina Raia (Writer/Director – ‘Summit’)

A snowy road lies empty and silent as a parked car sits crooked off to the side. The driver’s door is aimlessly open. A trail of red stains the snow. A woman’s body lies at the end of the blood-stained trail; her skin blue ...

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
