Dylan McNeil

A PROPOS DU RÉALISATEUR: <br /><br />Dylan McNeil avait 19 ans quand il décida de se lancer dans le cinéma car il en avait assez de ces films violents où des gens à moitié dévêtus passent leur temps à se tirer dessus. <br /><br />Si vous aussi vous en avez assez de ce genre de films, vous apprécierez à sa juste valeur le style moderne et tranchant de ce jeune cinéaste bien sous tous rapports, dont la seule prétention est de faire passer aux spectateurs un agréable moment dans le respect des valeurs inculquées par nos ancêtres. <br /><br />Dylan a trois chiens: Igor, Croquette et Kimono. <br /><br /> ****** <br /><br />ABOUT THE DIRECTOR <br /><br />NY is Dylan McNeil’s third short film, directly following his second short film, which was preceded by his first short film. The director first discovered film at a drive-in art house theater at age 17. After viewing the conceptual minimalist director Meyer’s “Sausages”—the famous static frame of wursts—his conception of cinema was revolutionized. <br /><br />Inspired by the violent rejection of cinematic conventions and formal purity of “Sausages,” Mr. McNeil has developed a personal imagery composed of lobsters as neo-existential allegories, representing Marxist themes with various puddings. His famous “jump-cut flambé” has since become his trademark. <br /><br />Although his detractors claim Mr. McNeil has confused nouvelle vague with nouvelle cuisine, and that “Sausages” was in fact an advertisement for Hillshire Farms he had been staring at in a parking lot, Mr. McNeil’s style nevertheless remains zesty and fattening, if nothing else. <br /><br />His upcoming projects include a fat-free version of “Macbeth,” focusing on keeping it under 250 calories.* <br /><br />*Based on 100 feet of 5245 Kodak Color film stock. <br /><br />
