Hey, I'm a freshman film major in Boston University's College of Communications. Currently I am working on my final paper for one of my classes and I wanted to quote you in it. Recently i attended the screening of Tarnation at the Coolidge Theater in Cambridge where you gave a question and answer sesssion. At one point you made a comment on how you think the new developments in digital home editting technology are bringing the media of film to a more personal level. I don't remember the exact quote of what you said, but I wanted to use it to conclude my paper. It's due on Friday the 10th so if you could possibly get back to me before that I would be so grateful. If not, i understand you must be extremely busy and I just wanted to let you know that I loved your film, saw it twice, and its such an inspiration for me as a young filmmaker to just get out there and make some films with any resources availible. Keep up the good work!

I'm French, I saw Tarnation yesterday, and I'd just like to say one thing to you :
Thanks for your movie.
It's one of the most intense and beautiful experience I ever had in a theater.
Thank you.

Hey Jonathan!

Let me begin by saying Thank You for producing such a beautiful, intense work of art in Tarnation! I just saw the movie and have to say it's one of the best films I've seen in a long time - and I see EVERY (well mostly) film that comes out. It was beautiful and I'm still crying. Your work touched me in a way that not many other films have - it reminded me of my very disfunctional family and my very distant mother who I just want to go and film her and take pictures of her so I can remember her forever...

So, thank you again! I plan on going to see it a few more times...

But, my bf and I can't figure out one question. In the scene where you are 11 and doing that dramatic monologue were you actually speaking or were you lipsynching? you can reach me via email at

Hey Jonathan,

I believe you meet me before, I'm one of Cassidy friend. Yes, I really like the movie a lot. I saw it so many times. I cry at the end of the movie when you were talking about your mom and how it was hard for you to come from a mom who had problem. Its was a bless to meet you in person when Cassidy and I was there at JR. I hope you would able to be back in Houston. Cassidy wanted to say hi to you, he try to call you but you never answered the phone. Well, I really enjoy your movie a lot my friend. I looking forward your up coming movie "tarnation 2,".

As both a psychotherapist and budding videographer (weird combo eh?), I was deeply moved by Tarnation. Just saw it last night on Sundance and found myself going through all sorts of phases as I watched: On the story itself I was deeply disturbed, psychologically analytical, compassionately moved, concerned about what emotional turmoil you must go through, hopeful because you obviously were able to use your camera and dramatic personality to express these emotions during a time in your life when I'm sure you felt totally helpless to do anything about your circumstances; and touched and appreciate that you would air this for others to experience and express some of their own turmoil through. OK, enough from the therapist side of me. In reaction to the cinematography part, I was entranced by the use of Fx to convey an almost constant sense of chaos, disturbance and confusion. I understand Tarnation was re-edited by a professional editing house or something after your home editing, so I'm not sure how much of the final editing is you vs them. Either way, great job of stringing together home movies, pics, etc. to document your life and troubles, as well as your mom's parallel story. I look forward to learning more about you and your work.
