Movie Time with DGNL is back! This month we’re featuring Jonah Crespi, an Associate Producer on our team. His Top Pic is…. a Trilogy!

“I want to preface this by stating I personally don't have a favorite movie there are just too many incredible films out there to choose from but I'll throw a few out there.

My first pick is Lord of the Rings Trilogy, directed by Peter Jackson (I don’t care, I'm counting these as one movie). These movies are perfect. Every aspect of filmmaking comes together at the highest level in these movies. Storytelling, Cinematography, Score, etc... They are simply the best.”

Stay tuned for Jonah's other top picks coming up throughout the month.

And let us know, what's your favorite movie? Is it even possible to have just one?

Our last January Movie Time post from Brittany. 🧡 🎬 We hope you’re enjoying getting to know #TeamDGNL through our love of cinema. Stay tuned for our February Movie Time fella.

Britt’s love for 𝙇𝙚𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙍𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩 𝙊𝙣𝙚 𝙄𝙣:
Tomas Alfredson’s 𝙇𝙚𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙍𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩 𝙊𝙣𝙚 𝙄𝙣 is a 2008 Swedish romance horror that I fell for. It is a vampire movie, but unlike any other vampire movie I’d previously watched. This film is a work of art. I could study this cinematography day after day because of the way the shots are weighted, their movement, along with the lighting design. Alfredson was approached to do a remake for an Americanized version of the film. I read his response in a mental floss entertainment article where he was quoted saying, “Can you not just get everyone to see this one? It is a perfectly good film you know!” I hear you! I love a good foreign language film!

It’s National Answer Your Cat’s Question Day, and the cats of Diagonal Media have some questions. Garrett just moved and his cat would like to know, “Why do you keep destroying these cardboard boxes? They are my favorite thing in the entire world.”

Gabe’s cat wants to know: “Where’s the food?”

And Syd’s cat asks, “Why doesn’t anyone want to play with me at 2am?”

Sound familiar?

Britt on The Florida Project
This is another feel-it-all moving film. The drama directed by Sean Baker and written by Baker and Chris Bergoch is about a struggling single mother and daughter, whose characters are hard to forget, fighting battle after battle with the socioeconomic ladder. The story feels authentic and the cast is raw, with a stand out performance from Willem Dafoe. From the cinematic palette to the weight of each shot the film is stunningly beautiful.

Our Origin Story

Diagonal Media was founded by Blake Drummond in 2015. Blake started his career in media production working behind the scenes on shows like Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, 30 Rock, and Ugly Betty. His skill and dedication allowed him to quickly work his way up to become the production coordinator on the hit show White Collar.

After 8 years of working in TV & Feature Film Production offices, Blake knew he needed to make a change. The vision of being a “creative” in the industry was slowly disappearing, so he decided to leave the logistics side of TV and Film and start his own path as a producer/cinematographer.

Blake spent years working on any filming job he could to hone and perfect his craft. It started with weddings and events, and transitioned into an opportunity to film a CEO presentation at an advertising holding company.

Blake’s experience as a production coordinator taught him the importance of professionalism, accountability, efficiency, and timeliness. These skills, and mindset, turned out to be the special sauce that would set him apart from others in the booming video industry. This job led to the next, and the next, until it got so busy that he needed help editing all of the content - so he reached out on a Final Cut Pro X user group looking for editors in NYC.
