5 Reasons You Should Be Paying Attention

David Jackson, director of Rent Me and Everyone Knows One, drops in to explain why you should keep an eye on Hate This

We’re Just Getting Started

The most exciting thing about everything we have come out with so far, and how productive we have been as a team, is that we just started. It’s easy to look at the videos, and shorts I’ve directed and say, “Ok, this is what they’re all about.” But in actuality we haven’t even scratched the surface of what we are trying to do. If you have enjoyed ANY of the stuff we have done so far then you are going to love the stuff you haven’t seen yet, and if you look at our stuff and say “Meh”, then stay tuned because we are only getting better.

None of that Artsy Fartsy Stuff

This is not an art competition. We aren’t here to make you watch a bag fly, or three guys talk at a desk. Hate This is about action, effects, and violence (and comedy). All the stuff you hate and love about blockbuster movies is what the Hate This Team is trying to do. We may not be there yet, but I’m not stopping until we are, and I hope everyone is there to see it when we do.

We’re From Buffalo In Buffalo

I don’t know about you but I’m really sick and tired of people telling me how much of a dump Buffalo is, and in order to make anything of myself I have to get out of the city. People want to complain about all the talent that leaves, then turn around and tell anyone with a little talent they should get out while they can. I’ll never understand it. The truth is there are people here making films, trying to make something of themselves all over Buffalo. Hate This represents that. We’re young, talented, and in Buffalo making stuff. Why wouldn’t you pay attention to that?

We’re Pretty

If you don’t like anything else about our movies, you can at least press mute and watch Shanna Montana and Vanessa Kharmen run around. I do it to Katy Perry videos all the time. That’s just infront of the camera. The girl to guy ratio for Hate This is like 9 to 1 (not by design…maybe a little), and Pentimento saw a little of that when we worked on Circles. I’m just saying, that deserves some attention.


We’re Mom Approved

I don’t care if you are Jesus himself, if my momma doesn’t like you, I don’t like you, and moms LOVE us. My mom cannot wait to see what we do next, Hate This moms tell us we’re doing great, OTHER people’s moms can’t get enough of us. Our stuff looks and sounds great, but more importantly it is something we can all show our mothers. If you are anything like me, that should pretty much seal the deal.

Keep an eye on us.
