Well-known filmmaker and screenwriter Kevin Smith is keeping on posting about his directorial debut, ‘Clerks.’
On April 1, Smith took to his verified Instagram account to mark the 28th “shooting” anniversary of the film which became a cult indie film; he uploaded a series of black and white behind-the-scene shots, which have not been published before, and told of how his life changed as of the release.
Smith implied in his message that the entire cast and the crew were not aware that they were making a cult film. After stating in the caption section that they started shooting his first film 28 years ago on April 1, the filmmaker wrote:
“A buncha know-nothing kids got together at @quickstopgroceries after hours and made some art that would change our lives forever and redefine who we thought we were. Not a day has gone by since then in which I haven’t uttered the words clerks.”
Adding that ‘Clerks’ has always been the signature movie of him even though he “spent decades” to show off his “tricks to varied results”, Smith also wrote that the film which had its world premiere at Sundance Film Festival in 1994 was his “one and only magic trick.”
The director of series of notable films such as ‘Dogma,’ ‘Clerks II,’ and ‘Red State’ concluded his words by giving a piece of great news:
“At the heart of the magic: a convenience store in central #newjersey. And with a little luck, we’ll all be headed back there very soon, to try to make some more magic…”
Seemingly, the filmmaker will go on mentioning his one and only magic trick and remembering good & old days through his social media posts. Head this way to view the abovementioned one.
