1 + 1 = 2 Damn Dope

My favorite show plus my favorite old skool rap song coming together for a trailer!!! My dreams have come true. But why oh why did we get rid of HBO?

Still, thanks to Sincere Thoughts for hepping me to the 5th season Wire trailer. Look forward to watching when it comes out on DVD.

As Promised...

... if a few weeks late. Here's the movie that I made for Filly Film Cult's Silent Night Film Festival.

Set-up: We were given 2 minutes worth of black-and-white Super 8 film, 2 minutes worth of music, and we had to do an in-camera edit.

Lessons Learned: Homemade sharpie-and-white-paper title cards while easy are not a good idea. If you want to flip someone off on film properly, you make sure your arm is extended far in front of your body. The word "rolling" can often be lost if you're too busy laughing and talking with your friends.

To my credit: I overcame my on-camera acting phobia to sub in for an actress who couldn't make it at the last minute.

Other credits:

Guy: Davitt Felder
Tall Woman: Kalimba Bennett
Redhead: Tracey Rooney

DP: My Wonderful Husband

Hope you enjoy; let me know what you think!
