East Bay Films – Film Screening and Collective

Always Wrong Film has teamed up with The Pallet Space to create a brand new film screening venue and collective located in Oakland/Emeryville, CA called East Bay Films!

The collective is not specific to any genre, it will be open to every type of film: art house, indie, drama, horror, etc. And to every type of person: filmmakers and fans of film. But this event will focus mainly on horror themed projects.

We are about being inclusive and not being exclusive in any way. We want to foster D.I.Y., no budget, underground film making.

With this event we hope it will grow into more meetings, feature length indie film screenings, a film festival, etc.

Our first night is Saturday Oct. 13th. We will be screening local independent films.

Time: 6:00pm

Location:
1061 Yerba Buena Ave
Emeryville, CA

“RMAR” Music Video Auditions

The music video is for the song “Rmar” by Gabber Nullification Project. This will be my second music video I directed for the band; the first one being “Sunday, Sunday.

Rmar stands for Rape, Murder, Arson and Rape. The song is about an individual that performs heinous acts and blames media for his own actions. And the video is a satirical piece where forms of the entertainment industry (film, TV, video games, music and print/model) are presented through the eyes of a radical right-wing watch group. They the media as bad influences and purveyors of filth, alternative (dangerous) life styles, etc. Deep down they believe that the viewer/consumer can be easily influence by the entertainment industry to commit horrible acts on humanity or to “turn” gay or “exploit” oneself. We are presenting this video as a satire; please remember that when reading the character descriptions.

I’m not sure if I will be holding physical auditions, it all depends on how much interest I get. If we have worked together before then you do not need to audition, but please email me anyway, and include what character you would like to play.

If we have never worked together and you would like to act in this project: please contact me and we can step up a time to meet up in person somewhere in public; like at Starbucks or somewhere else in Modesto, CA.

*Video will most likely be shot in Modesto, and some roles will NOT require a long shoot. Please keep this in mind.
