Talking Technophobia

“Be afraid. Be very afraid.” From the very beginning, Hollywood movies have offered a frightening reflection of our deep fear of technology, its effects, and sinister implications. Time-traveling terminators, resurrected dinosaurs, alien invasions, and virtual prisons all give us a sense of just how terrified Hollywood writers, directors, and producers think we are (or should be).

In this class we will investigate popular, pivotal movies and discuss their fears, warnings, and possible solutions to this ever-increasing cultural technophobia. Discussion topics will include: “the mad scientist and you,” “ghosts in the machines,” “malfunctioning machinations,” “risks and rewards,” and “the power of human ingenuity.”

Friday September 11
7:00pm
on ZOOM!

This September on “Talking Technophobia in Film,” we continue our Second Season and year-long discussion of the cultural significance of Stanley Kubrick’s most famous films. “You will not laugh, you will not cry. You will learn by the numbers.” So rehearse your best renditions of the “Mickey Mouse Club” and your John Wayne impression, say goodbye to your childhood innocence, and ship out from Paris Island to the jungles of Vietnam, as we turn our attention to Full Metal Jacket (1987).

We will touch upon the warrior culture, the war machine, and the duality. Some themes will include the “masculinity,” “transformation,” and “duality.”
Join us, Soldier, and “get some” on September 11th at 7pm.

“A Mamaroneck Census Poem in the Style of Dr. Seuss”

With the Census scheduled to end on September 30th, the Village of Mamaroneck wanted to find a creative way to get-the-word out and encourage more residents to complete their Census questionnaires. So, a few Mamaroneck residents came together and, drawing their inspiration from Dr. Seuss, wrote “A Mamaroneck Census Poem in the Style of Dr. Seuss”. \ This PSA includes representatives from various organizations in the Village, coming together to try and get the word out.

The Village of Mamaroneck’s 2020 Census Response Rate is at 68.8% — just 1.6% points away from breaking their 2010 Census Response Rate of 70.4%! Help get the word out about completing the Census. https://2020census.gov/en.html

Matt Sullivan’s Award Acceptance Video

Matt Sullivan currently serves as Executive Director at Larchmont Mamaroneck Community Television (LMCTV). His passion for the art of film and media led him to Emerson College in Boston, where he majored in Visual Arts. Taking advantage of the school’s placement programs he spent semesters in the Netherlands and Los Angeles. During his time at Emerson, Matt worked on over 40 student films, doing everything from assistant camera, to producer, to director. As a student, Matt produced “The Fabulous Felix McCabe,” which was nominated that year for an MTV Movie Award. 

“During his last semester at Emerson College, Matt interned for @Radical Media, personally doing script coverage for director Dave Meyers. After graduating Emerson College, Matt moved to Los Angeles where he started work on the game show “Deal or no Deal.”

“He worked on several different reality TV shows until 2007, when he became Production Coordinator on the CW Network’s “Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight.” It was here that Matt learned the many facets of pre-production, production, and post-production. Wanting to explore more of his artistic side, Matt changed gears in 2008 and started working in the art department on Fox’s hit show “24” with Kiefer Sutherland. It was a goal and dream to work on the show, as Matt was both a fan and in awe of the show’s hard edge, seat gripping action and suspense. The seventh season of the award-winning show saw Matt working under production designer Joseph Hodges. After finishing the season, Matt went on to work in the art departments of several other award-winning shows including Fox’s “House” and ABC’s “Castle.”

“In 2011, Matt moved back to New York and started fresh, taking a job at LMCTV as the Community and Government Production Coordinator. Over the next several years, Matt moved up in the company taking the job of Assistant Director and then Chief Operating Officer. In April of 2018, he took over the position of Executive Director. Throughout those years, he produced and directed “Sobrevivo,” a short film that won “Best Zombie Film” at the NY Scary Movie Awards. Shortly after, Matt wrote, directed, and produced “The Attic,” which had a successful film festival run as well. His current film “Dead Air,” is in a successful festival run with official selections worldwide. The film is currently in feature length development. Matt currently serves with honor on both the NY Chapter of the Alliance for Community Media and the Alliance for Community Media Northeast Region Board. He is a proud member of the Larchmont Mamaroneck Lions Club and the Sound Shore Saint Patrick’s Day Parade Committee.”

We thank our teens for showing gratitude and most importantly we thank our nurses for the care and dedication they have provided from the time of Florence Nightingale to now and this time of COVID.
