it looks like someone pulled the old kaleidoscope with ink around the eye hole gag on her. You would think the director or someone would have had the decency to tell her she had that shit all over her. But I guess a good gag is a good gag.

FILM - AUGUST 7, 2002

Local filmmaker to debut his musical at The Temple

By ELAINE YAW

Ben Sumrall has big ideas and big plans.

One idea: There is beauty in all words and all ideas. They all have an inherent beauty.

One plan (which can last his lifetime): He has a lot of creative energy, and he wants to express it.

The latest result: “Logashu,” his 30-minute film that will debut Aug. 14 at The Temple Club.

Sumrall and company (he started his own nonprofit production company Delphi Productions) are part of a growing trend in Lansing and beyond. That is, if you have something to say or show or express and you don’t have the place to do it or the money to fund it, find a way.

Now comes Sumrall’s first film. He knew what he wanted to do, he just needed to find a way to do it.

He needed money. He needed a place. He had a musical to present, after all.
The money came from private donations. That allows him to show the film for free.

The place turned out to be The Temple Club. Sumrall rented the space. He wouldn’t say how much he paid, but did hint that he got a deal.
Now, about the film.

It’s based on the idea of balance, Sumrall says. This is expressed in four battle scenes. “Even though there are four radically different points of view, they still have values and reasons for what is said or shown,” Sumrall says. The film is a new way of storytelling for Sumrall and is based on a long, lyrical poem he wrote.
Most of his experience has been directing productions for the stage. (He just finished his master’s in theater at MSU.) But, “Logashu” couldn’t be done in live format because of the music, Sumrall said.

The music has acoustic guitar battling electronica, mainly trance and jungle, and was done by local musician Misha Peterson and DJ Scott Newman.

Sadly, this will be Sumrall’s last hurrah in town. The week after the film’s debut, he leaves for Korea to teach English for a year. Maybe he’ll return with another film to show. That is, before he carries out is master plan to move to New York.

Look at all that skin damage. She looks like a greasy tomato.

I think it was unfair of him to inflict his incoherent new age babble on the Koreans. They have enough trouble as it is.

According to Theateronline " Ben has also done work in film: This Revolution, Logashu, and 60 x 60."

We demand the Ben Sumrall film festival.
