…And I’ll Be The Director!

Okay, a few weeks ago I posted a blurb on a recently revived Hollywood effort to bring Voltron to the silver screen. While we did learn about who was providing the moneybags, penning the script, and perhaps a clue or two on what the cinematography would be like, there wasn’t really anything regarding who the head honcho would be… Ugh, but really who would’ve thought it’d be this guy?

Wait, who the hell is this guy and what is he doing to Voltron!?

Wait, who the hell is this guy and what is he doing to Voltron!?

Meet Max Makowski. Yeah, you, me, and the rest of the internet have no flippin’ idea who this guy is and what he has to bring to the table. Gathering from some internet skimming detailing this guy’s street cred shows some rather… unique experiences. For starters, we can talk about his teleivion experience: NBC’s The Today Show for folks who watch it… for some reason… in Asia. Then, we have such gems as Queer Eye For The Straight Guy (episode director for a handful of installments) and The Agency (no, not the cool CIA one that aired on CBS, rather the exceptionally shitty reality series on VH1). His only real success at feature films would probably be 1997’s The Pigeon Egg Strategy, an off-the-wall black comedy that has a markedly amusing wikipedia entry:

The Pigeon Egg Strategy is a black-and-white film directed by Max Makowski. One of the most notable aspects of the film is its multi-cultural nature. Makowski is a Brazilian who speaks Spanish and he shot the film with an American cast in Hong Kong with a crew of Chinese pornographers. The script was written in Germany. It was made on a million dollar loan that was never repaid.

Oh fantastic, I simply can’t wait for the E! True Hollywood Story to come out. Ugh, wake me up when GOOD news somehow gets tricked into attaching itself to this potential nerdrage-fest.
