Just a quick update on my new project “Rmar,” which is a music video for Gabber Nullification Project. This is my second video for the band. If you read my earlier blog post in September I posted an open call audition for Rmar. I had to cut some characters out which was fine because I cut some extra roles and one character that was only added for one gag in the video. But sadly one person dropped out and I had to cut a major character from the video. I don’t mind, that shit happens, but it could have been handled better on the actor’s part. But now looking at the footage I think the video will work better without these characters. I always have the tendency to shoot too much footage, which can ruin the flow of the scenes and I just have to cut out good material because of time.
We shot the video in two days and it was great. The weather was great, we shot locally and had very few props or costumes. I and some actors were late on both shoots, but that was the only problem we ran into. I loved working with actors from previous projects but I was also able to cast some new faces. Because of my regular work schedule, it will take quite a bit of time to edit this thing together. So to my actors: please be patient with me 🙂
On Saturday (November 3rd) was the screening of The Can-Cannibals in Sonora, CA at the 2012 ITSA Film Festival. My girlfriend and I attended the festival but before we arrived we went to Murphys, CA and ate vegan beet burger sliders on a house made challah bun with house made chips on the side at Mineral. It was really fucking good! Anyone in the area seriously has to go try them, even if you’re not vegan you will love them.
We attended the horror segment of ITSA Film Festival called Reel Scary. The Can-Cannibals kicked off the event by screening first. The festival was real fun. This was our second time attending; the first time was for the Attack of the Killer UFOs music video. This time I got to speak for a little bit to the crowd about the project. And got to talk to a couple of cool people about film. Hopefully we stay in contact because it’s really important for our local film community to stay connected.
Here are a couple of short films that I really enjoyed:
He Dies At The End. Written & Directed by Damian Mc Carthy.
Dark Times by Peter Horn & Jared Marshall
