Where Has Trent Been?

9 Nov

  So it’s occurred to me that it’s been awhile since I’ve posted an article, YouTube video, or shown any signs of life. Well, I assure you that I am in fact still alive and well. During this period of being gone the blog has turned one year old! I can’t believe I started this blog over a year ago now. Time really does go fast. Within this past year I’ve had some really great experiences, met some great people, and have expanded my reader base.  The reason for my absence is mainly due to an increasing amount of factors that can simply be summed up as “Life.” I’ve been intrenched in a large amount of work that has finally began to pay off. Which means, you’ll be seeing a lot more of me in the coming days. I’ve got my hands on some great new filming equipment, finished a few screenplays, and have connected with some great individuals. In fact, we hope to be releasing a web series in the coming months.

I intended for this year to be the year of huge change but looking back I failed to realize that before you can do anything, you must first lay the groundwork for success. I am proud to say that, I am well on my way to achieving the goals that occupy my dreams at night and my thoughts by day. I’m the kind of guy that is not happy with doing a single thing. That explains why I’ve ventured into the world of music production. Dubstep to be exact. I’ve begun to create music under the pseudo “Battle Attack.” Here’s one of the songs I’ve created.

I think it is important to always follow your dreams no matter who you are or what they may be because although you may be here today, tomorrow is not certain. Live life without regrets and do as many things as you possibly can. Be you.

As you all know, the Internet is quickly beginning to overtake the traditional forms of media such as newsprint, television, and radio. The major media networks that were established in the 20th century are no longer relevant. Continue reading

USMNT: The Movie?

31 Oct

For American fans, this past summer’s world cup in South Africa was one for the memory books. The USMNT put on an amazing performance and showed the world that American’s CAN play soccer. Their amazing heart, determination, and skill didn’t go unnoticed. Thousands of fans throughout America posted their reactions to some of the spectacular moments on YouTube, and the popular alternative rock band Weezer made an unofficial anthem for the team. This high level of soccer “buzz” hasn’t been seen in the United States since the days of the New York Cosmos. With the MLS playoffs in full swing and a new World Cup qualifying campaign around the corner, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Hollywood capitalize on the new found popularity of the USMNT. The soccer market in America is generally open for business and is practically waiting for big time producers to move in. The sheer theatricalness of this past year’s World Cup leaves it open to a wide variety of film ideas. Take note Hollywood, there are many actors that could play a nice part in the film if it were to be made.

If I were the casting director I would cast the film as follows.

Head Coach Bob Bradley would be played by Bruce Willis.

The resemblance is just spot on. Everything from their personalities to their looks would make this a must. And who knows, Bruce Willis may just put in an Oscar winning performance. Next up we have Landon Donovan, one of the greatest American soccer players of all time. A great film needs some comic relief right? I would cast Ben Stiller to play Landon Donovan.

So you’re probably asking yourself “Why Ben Stiller?” In my opinion this would be the perfect match. Ben Stiller is not just a comedic actor. His dramatic roles have been exceptional as well. For instance, in the film Greenberg Ben Stiller delivered an exceptional and emotional performance. It would make more sense for someone of  his caliber to play a person as complex and dynamic as Landon Donovan. Moving right along, we have American goalkeeper Tim Howard. I would cast Keegan-Michael Key who is best known for his roles on MadTv.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The resemblance between the two is uncanny. I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference if they switched places between the goal posts.

These are a few of my picks for the cast of a USMNT movie. Who do you think should appear in a film about the team? Post your picks in the comment section below.
