Born: December 8, 1943 in Melbourne, Florida, USA
Died: July 3, 1971 (age 27) in Paris, France

[Los Angeles, 1969] Let’s just say I was testing the bounds of reality. I was curious to see what would happen. That’s all it was: just curiosity.

[Dinner Key Auditorium, 3/1/69, the infamous concert where he allegedly exposed himself] We are not talking about no revolution! I’m not talking about no demonstration! I’m talking about having some fun! I’m talking about dancing! I’m talking about love your neighbor ’til it hurts! I’m talking about love! […] This is your show, anything you want goes!

I’ve always been attracted to ideas that were about revolt against authority. When you make peace with authority, you become an authority.
Music is a pure expression of joy.

INSPIRING SONG TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE
by Katarina Jovcevska

(For better results read this inspiring song at loud every day many times for a happier and richer life)

I am the best of myself until now,I live my life with all my heart and see I am fulfilled with love which I am giving to everyone around me.

I am one with the universe and I finally know the law of life to get everything I want.

My mind is a beautiful garden of incredible ideas,positivism,huge enthusiasm,inspiring thoughts,I am blessed to dive in the ocean of abundance and unlimited happiness and wealth.

The destiny is smiling me now,I am excited and so inspired,cured,the life is a wonderful and for me it is happening so many miracles every day.

I don’t hurt anybody with anything and don’t want to be hurt because I know my limits of behavior and I am ready to attract more wonderful situations and things which already waiting to come to me.I am master of my life,I only listen what says my heart I have intuition to be in the right place and right time.

Today is my new life,real time,real life and real love around me which I am living now ,I am so pure human being with all joy in myself,with forgiveness in me for everyone in the past,without anger , fear,sorrow,disseases of every kind,negativity and vices…

Finally I am free to imagine,to create,to dream and to build my future starting from now.

I am genius ,I appreciate myself more than ever before because deeply I know that I am so precious I am changed and everyone can see that I am so kind ,so happy and beautiful human being.

I have that unique power to change the things on my way and in the same time to inspire the others.I sing the song of my life ,and my dreams are coming true because I believed in them to this day.

I suffered so many times and felt so many pains,but never mind that is all behind and that is the process to the better life and thoughts which I have now.

I had to grow day by day for to be today that I am.

Now I know that I have purpose and to spend my days on amazing way…

I know the rule that everything depends on me,my thoughts,spoken words,acting and desires what I will choose that will be.

I am not crazy to be lonely,sick,sad,angry and poor,man of course and I chose to be happy,good friend,humane and rich that I am putting on my mind and imagine that will be the new seed and so it be.To be the change to awake of the dream.

I am awaking and waiting.

BELUSHI’S TOILET – EPISODE 1, Short Film from November 2014 Film Festival

I was very pleased with the feedback. I was thrilled that the first audience member felt uncomfortable after watching it. Film-making is about stirring emotions. Good or bad.

– Director Andrew Wright, on his reaction to the audience’s reaction in the discussion format at the WILDsound Film Festival (Review)

The November 2014 Film Festival showcased the first episode of a web series out of Toronto, Canada.

    Watch the Audience Feedback from the Festival:

Q&A with Director Andrew Wright

Matthew Toffolo: What motivated you to make this film?

Andrew: My experiences in the UK rave scene in the early 90s left a great impression on me. Combined with my love of science fiction films, I decided that “futuristic nostalgia” might be an interesting twist. I initially planned to try and sell the feature-length screenplay, but as film-making technology became so affordable, and Toronto is filled with local talent, I decided to form a production company and make the film myself.

MT: From the idea to the finished product, how long did it take for you to make the first episode of this web series?

Andrew: The original feature-length screenplay took me 13 years to write (on and off!) The actual production of episode 1, from deciding to make it, to releasing it on YouTube took six months.

MT: What was the biggest obstacle you faced in completing this film?

Andrew: Finding locations was the biggest challenge, and then finding dates when everyone was available at the same time that the locations were available. When you have five actors and a location that all need to be lined up, combined with the fact we only shoot at weekends, it really slowed us down.

MT: The feedback was generally more about your premise than the actual film itself. Did you wish that we talked about something specifically during the moderation?

Andrew: I loved that people jumped straight into talking about the theme of the movie, and not picking out technical flaws. Someone once said, “Filmmaking is the art of being invisible”, in other words, if anyone notices your work, you haven’t done your job right. I totally agree with that. I was pleased we’d created a future world that people felt was real enough to debate.

MT: Other than your own, what was your favourite film that played at the festival?

Andrew: “Birds Fly South” was definitely my favourite. It was very well written, cast and acted, and had a simple but powerful message. There were a few technical issues with focus-pulling, but even that didn’t detract from the story.

MT: What film have you seen the most in your life?

Andrew: “2001: A Space Odyssey” is probably my all time favourite film and the one I’ve watched the most. No other film has portrayed the scale of the universe and mankind’s place in it, quite so well.

MT: What is next for you? A new film? How many episodes are in this web series?

Andrew: We’re just finishing post-production on episode 2. We were hoping to release it in mid-December, but that might be pushed to mid-January now. We’re estimating that there will be approximately 16 episodes in total, unless we suddenly decide to release it as a feature. The direction and speed of production really depends on if we secure funding. The first two episodes were done on a shoestring budget.

ANDREW WRIGHT BIO

Andrew started out as a record label owner, and writer and producer of techno and drum & bass music, in his home country of the United Kingdom in the early 1990s. After a string of successful releases, but hindered by the UK recession, Andrew moved to a career in I.T. As a background hobby, he worked on a feature length screenplay, based on his experiences on the UK rave scene, but set in a not-too-distant future.

After moving to Toronto in 2006, he finally completed the work, and is now producing the material as the webseries “Belushi’s Toilet”. Everyone involved in the project has had no formal training in filmmaking, and this no-budget production is driven purely by passion for the art.
