Filmmaking

The Next Films. Is casting time? Maybe it is.

Legal Paws (Short):

It’s high stakes litigation… with furries. Thus the name. Get it. It’s a pun. This script has been sitting for a good year, I think it’s time for it to get up and running.

Unfinished Business:

This one used to be called “Everything Else: The Warrior’s Path” which actually does have some footage. None of which is going to carry over into this next film. Nor is the similar structure of the last two movies in the series (thank God.) We’ll be able to start sort of fresh and deliver some content that isn’t QUITE over everyone’s head like we did last time. No drugs will be required to have a good time here. I’m going for a different tone. And Rock Band will be involved. So it’s going to be fun.

The Creative Process:

What do you do when you’re creatively bankrupt and need money? You make porn. But not just any porn. You want to redefine what porn can be. Much to the disdain of everyone around you.

I have some other scripts I’m working on too. But we’ll get to those when we come to them. Until then, stay tuned. And of course we’ll film some other things in between, but that’s just what we have now.

Hopefully I can cast this stuff soon. Hit me up with an e-mail or a tweet if you want to act in something

48 Hour Film Festival and the Future

We did the 48 Hour Film Festival Chicago a couple of weeks ago.¬†And the movie screened. We didn’t win shit, as expected. But that’s totally okay and I’ll tell you why.

Even though no one showed up to my screening (and I mean no one, not even my cast. That hurt a bit.) I did get some loud and honest laughs, and that was super cool. It was all I really wanted.

Afterwards, I was feeling a bit down, with people not showing up and what not. But then someone approached me and asked if I’m that guy who made that DDR movie. Yes, apparently people are still talking about that. But it affirms my belief that it’s the audience that’s important. Leave them with an experience they won’t forget. Which is what I’m taking into my next thing. You’ll see more on that later.

Will I enter again? I dunno. I don’t have a team I can really trust to deliver in the clutch (as of right now). This year was a measuring stick to find out everything I have to do from that moment on. Considering I had to scramble to get people actually IN this thing after letting everyone know a month in advance hurts a bit. That made my casting choices suffer. Nothing against those guys, but they’re not actors. Denise is the only one of them who could act out of a wet paper bag. But I’m glad those guys showed up. We had really good conversation. But that’s really it.

Much as I love the 48 Hour I like to spend more time and plan stuff. But it’s been a good few years.
