Biography

Kong: Skull Island Production Notes

JORDAN VOGT-ROBERTS (Director) is an American film and television director hailing from the ashes of Detroit.

Vogt-Roberts began his feature career with the film, “The Kings of Summer,” which he directed. The film premiered in competition at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival to critical acclaim.

The very next year in 2014, Vogt-Roberts was back at Sundance as a producer and director for the world premiere of Nick Offerman’s Netflix concert film “Nick Offerman: American Ham.”

Prior to the success of “The Kings of Summer,” Vogt-Roberts directed the short film “Successful Alcoholics,” starring Lizzy Caplan, Nick Kroll and Tony Hale. The film debuted at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and subsequently screened at more than 30 festivals worldwide, including South by Southwest and AFI.

On the television and web side, Vogt-Roberts created and directed the incredibly visual-minded Comedy Central television series “Mash Up” in 2011. He also directed Stephen Falk’s pilot “You’re the Worst,” which is now a hit original series on FX Networks entering its fourth season.

Vogt-Roberts also creates web and commercial content for Ridley Scott’s RSA productions where he has also directed award-winning projects that have reached millions of viewers. This includes a recent campaign for Audi starring Claire Danes and a PSA with Arnold Schwarzenegger crushing cars in his M47 Patton tank, which got over 10 million views in one day and raised over $1 million for charity. Vogt-Roberts’ early work in web content with comedians like Thomas Middleditch, Kumail Nanjiani, Hannibal Buress and Pete Holmes helped lay the groundwork for current online content creation and distribution models.

He is currently attached to direct the video game adaption “Metal Gear Solid” and uses his free time to help with a non-profit called the Detroit Creativity Project that offers improv free of charge in Detroit public schools.

I apologize for the insult. Now: the channel has over eight million subscribers; it's hardly an obscure target. I thought he did a rather good job of breaking down why he thought it fails at satire (it's overly-long, inattentive, mean-spirited nitpicking largely indistinguishable from the armchair critics it claims to spoof) and thus contributes to the dumbing down of conversations about film. What about his posts struck you as childish?

While I agree with him that CinemaSins isn't that great, I felt it was very childish to compare them to Donald Trump and say things like "actually watch the movie" and then quickly backtracking on what he said by saying "I just wanted to point out why these videos are infuriating" despite literally saying that they "suck the life blood of other people and are often just wrong about intent or how cinema works."

Hard to read a Twitter thread these days without Trump's name coming up. Personally, I barely noticed, and think the nature of threads (writing each one as people are replying) accounts for any inconsistencies in tone. It's not an essay.

Pretty funny to see this guy cry like a pathetic child over a satirical video.

Pretty funny to see someone wrongly assume that I'm a fan of CinemaSins just for pointing out how sad it is that a movie director threw a tantrum over a satirical webseries made for comedic purposes.
