MoviesI'll just assume this isn't supposed to include my movies.
- Original Star Wars- first movie I remember seeing, at the Uptown in 1977.
- Lord of the Rings trilogy- just about perfect for a film.
- Seven Samurai and Ran- Akira Kurosawa was awesome. Madadayo was sad because it was so obviously his swan song.

- Chronicles of Narnia
- Battlestar Galactica
- Star Trek
Are we seeing a trend here ?

HeroesI'm my greatest hero! Soon I'll be yours too!
About me:FIRST OFF: If you want to friend me and I don't know you, then send me a message with just one reason based on my profile before you add me to your friends. There are too many "people" who just seem to want to increase the size of their friends list. So- read my profile and tell me one thing that actually interests you, or I'll automatically deny the request.
I am a film maker. Mostly my interests are in dramatic fiction, specifically science fiction adventure stories. Mostly I've been working with editing and compositing... all sorts of film post-production and visual effects mostly centered on CGI effects.
I'm an ex ice hockey player, I played a little minor pro and coached kids as a job for a few years.
I like rpgs, movies, and video games. I like skating, but mostly as part of hockey.
I am an Atheist. I am interested in religion- but it has the same merit to me as Greek mythology or the like.
I have no interest in children of my own. That is not likely to change at this stage in my life.
I like other people's kids fine, but mostly because after some short time span they go away with their parents. That said I am great with kids. I love coaching hockey. Its fun to coach the higher levels, but its most rewarding to coach the little ones. They remember and they are thankful.
My screen name, tirgaya, is Elvish, specifically Quenya. That's "private" because it indicates my level of geekiness more than I like. So, being a geek, I am going to tell you about it.
Tirgaya is an agglutinated word of my own devising meaning, "the dread watcher." Tir means watcher. (like for example palantir) Gaya means awesome or dread.
In the movies and books most speaking and writing is in Sindarin Elvish. Quenya has about the same relation to Sindarin as Latin to Spanish.
In the movies the only time I recall anyone talking in Quenya was when Saruman cast the spell to "bring down the mountain" as the fellowship tried to cross Caradhras. (The scene when they almost drowned in snow.)
If you ask I can usually spout a few things in Elvish, but I speak poorly at best.
Who I'd like to meet:Jessica Alba and Halle Berry, then again who wouldn't ?
If you are into film making, then feel free to get in touch. I am always looking for local actors and behind the camera talent.
