more BEER TRAIN details (photos, props, script sample, etc…)

May 15, 2009

So in all my BEER TRAIN updates I’ve only managed to squeeze out the most general of information. In fact the actual process over the last couple of months has been a relentless and tedious grind characterized by many tiny details. Each time I sat down to summarize it all, I was left feeling overwhelmed […]

BEER TRAIN – the movie (preproduction)

February 4, 2009

We are planning on whipping out a 3 minute short for entry into the contest in May, and barring that, to interest investors and use when we pitch the thing. Working on zero budget is a challenge. We will be scrounging props from where ever we can find them. Toward that end, I created a […]

BEER TRAIN – the movie

January 31, 2009

If you are like me, when you were a kid you dreamed of making your own movies. I used to envision films in my head… actually disjointed pieces of film mostly… centered around a particular image I found powerful… these ideas were wrapped around some very basic premise and that was as far as it […]

cult movies I have loved: my favorite zombie movies (part 2)

January 10, 2009

It has been awhile since I’ve done an installment of my cult movie favorites, and I had barely posted my first installment of zombie movie favs when I started to suffer from horrible pangs of guilt. How could I have neglected to mention some of the greatest zombie movies ever committed to film? Even as […]

cult movies I have loved: Six-String Samurai

October 2, 2008

The year was 1998 and a low budget post-apocalyptic action/comedy musical won Slamdance awards for best editing and cinematography and rave reviews from the likes of Fangoria, Film Threat and Ain’t It Cool News. Made on a budget of $2,000,000, it only made $124,494 at the box offices and then seemingly vanished forever into the […]

cult movies I have loved: Silent Running

September 17, 2008

This lesser known Sci-Fi movie from 1972 seems to leave very little middle ground in opinion. People either love it or hate it. If you like your science fiction filled with laser blasters and light sabers and marked by a soothingly simple contrast between good and evil then Silent Running will probably leave you scratching […]

cult movies I have loved: Dr. Strangelove

July 19, 2008

OK… OK… Maybe this movie is enough of a mainstream classic that it is something of a stretch calling it a “cult” movie, but a few weeks ago when I found it on DVD at the grocery store and bought it for $10 the zit-faced, saggy pants-wearing, emo-haired, generation-Y-next-zero-whatever-they-are-called cashier goon looked at the movie […]

cult movies I have loved: Little Murders

July 16, 2008

This little known gem started out as a play written by Jules Feiffer before it was made into a movie directed by first time director Alan Arkin. This very dark comedy requires a certain mood, and if you aren’t an Elliot Gould fan you might be put off by his involvement alone. Stand out performances […]
