Meet Jordan Crowder
Jordan Crowder is a very talented filmmaker from Canada. He was born in Detroit and moved to Montreal, Quebec at the age of 6. He soon became interested in the arts of filmmaking and acting too. He is now 22 years old and is attending school at the University of Texas. He is taking advantage of a scholarship that he received from Austin’s Film School. Jordan has produced a nice collection of works already and I thought I would display them on my blog. I did get his permission first and he is aware of his works being displayed on my blog. I’m not really sure how big Jordan’s dreams are to become a successful filmmaker, but at only 22 years old, it would seem the sky is the limit.
I am the camera man/producer/filmmaker for my family. I’m the one that gets the camcorder out and puts together all the family get togethers and such. I thought I was doing a pretty good job and had a lot of creativity in my works, until I saw one of Jordan’s films. I soon realized that I was way behind the curve and as I continued to watch other pieces that Jordan had put together, I knew he had ideas that were just busting at the seams. I could very well be the next guy you see with a film on America’s Funniest Home Videos and Jordan might just be the very next Steven Spielberg that we are all mad at, because he won’t release E.T. on VCR tapes that we could go to Blockbuster and rent. If it sounds like I am jumping the gun a bit, be sure to watch some of his work before you start blasting me. I am going to show you below the first film that I saw that caught my eye. While my eye may be long from a professional’s opinion, maybe Rob Zombie’s eye could shed light as well.
First Let’s Meet Jordan
Does he sound cocky? Or is he just being sarcastic? I think he was just being sarcastic. Watching his works and the email he sent me, he sounds like a really great guy and check out the video that caught Rob Zombie’s eye and mine as well.
Horror Friends by Jordan Crowder
So what did you think?
Being a huge fan of horror movies and the characters that play in them, I just loved this video. I must have watched it a few dozen times now and it was this video that made me wonder, just who was this Jordan Crowder?
Now for the metal heads out there that know about White Zombie are well-aware of their songwriter and lead singer Rob Zombie. Some may be more familiar with the movies House of 1000 Corpses or its sequel The Devil’s Rejects; both of these movies were produced by Rob Zombie. His 2007 movie made big news as he brought back Michael Myers from the popular Halloween movies and once again the mask killer was on the big screen terrorizing the neighborhood.
Rob recently did a video at YouTube, where he was looking for Halloween themes from other YouTubers. In his search, guess who he found?
Rob Zombie’s Halloween Videos
Did you see Jordan’s YouTube video get mentioned by Rob Zombie?
While Rob didn’t necessarily give a great endorsement and really seem to be a bit full of his self and maybe doesn’t really realize that the videos he was mentioning, was just like the big studios produce. Except the people on YouTube aren’t making millions from their works and would seem just to have a love for the arts instead of the big bucks, like Rob is making. I still think its very impressive to see a guy like Jordan get mentioned by another fellow filmmaker/producer. Rob was born in 1965 and Jordan was born 20 years later in 1985 and it makes me wonder where Jordan Crowder will be in 20 years.
Wikipedia (online encyclopedia) credits Rob Zombie with 5 movies right now. One is just a short film and another one hasn’t been release yet and will be out in 2008. When the rated R animation of The Haunted World of El Superbeasto comes out in 2008, it will make Rob’s 5th film. It should be interesting to see what Wikipedia has on Jordan Crowder in 20 years.
Stay tuned and I will be featuring more of Jordan’s works over the days, weeks, months, and possibly years to come! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK JORDAN!Click here for reuse options!
