Trailer Rash 2 - The Flair Up

I’m still not finished with the trailer, and ended it in a rough state last night.

How do we get it in shape!?!

I need to put it online tomorrow, will be working all day today, so tonight after work, pull an all-nighter until I get it in a presentable spot.

Or wake up early and go at it in the morning, don’t have to be at work until 7:30pm.

I’m not going to sweat it, the old trailer is on the old Digi beta, it can pinch hit until I get the other up and running.

You always try to end it (the work session) on a up note, last night the computer froze, and I slapped the rest together, it runs at about a minute, needs more zombie killing and gun fire, more lines of dialogue.

Really it needs a rough and tumble feel, it’s too basic right now.

Once I find some music, then we can rock it.

This is the last big thing though. After that, once I get a street date, a big blow out at the house will ensue, get everyone back together, chips, dips, and a strobe light! (woowoo)

Trailer Rash

The trailers structure is down, just got to work it out.

Will I get this done by the weekend?

I can hammer on it hard tomorrow.

Tonight after work I will get the title cards down. Pick out some music.

In the end, it is all going to work out.

Its all just roadside diversions in this big crazy funeral procession.

I am missing Dragon Con this weekend.

No Drive-Invasion.

Just working on trailer.

Now that you can get uncut Italian horror off Amazon, wide screen, trailer, interviews, for next to nothing the appeal of shelling out 30 dollars for a VHS bootleg isnt what it once was.

I AM 14!

How do I know that I am 14?

Because Death Race rocked my face off.

Ugly, profane, over the top retartedness, everyone gritting their teeth and doing MAN SHIT!

Steel, dirt, oil, grit, piss, and sociopathic nut jobs, cars, Maxim chicks, gore.

Respectful to the original, gave it a nice spin.

Very little CG. The stunts are incredible.

Statham doesnt oil wrassl any dudes, but does run off with a gay man at the end to start a little family, but after going through a Death Race, a bond forms that we who do not Death Race are not allowed to judge. The uber hot chick shows up at the last second to bring Statham back over the fence.

Director Anderson has come a long way and this is his best since Magnolia (wink).

-ramble begins here-

Once you run out of ideas, then you can start being creative, it is when you are out of options that the spark ignites.

Out of money and time, you become creative.

Im going on vacation on first week of September.

The plan is to finish the trailer and get it out to the distribs before I split.

The rain is putting me to sleep today.

I am trying to prevent crashing, because I have to go a pass on the trailer tonight.

Thus, no 10 shots of espresso at the bucks tonight.

I am twenty one pages into RAMROD, it is going where it will, an odd superhero story.

The plan is to have the scenes get progressively shorter, tighten the noose, and then the whole thing will become a fever dream, completely jump the tracks, crash into the audience. Leave people scratching their heads at what the heck did they just see?

Thinking about Work

My day job is like being on a starship.

I think it must be what being on the Enterprise must be like.

I sit quietly at my control panel, occasionally the captain asks me a question.

I answer, We are still collating the data.

They say, Carry on.

Never on Star Tek did they say, Ah! My screen has locked up! Craaaaaap!

That would make it all more realistic, if they had IT guys always diagnosing the various systems, waiting for systems to update, getting viruses, etc.

A mental image I am getting right now is me with my hands out and sand falling from a black abyss above, straining through my fingers, continuing into the black abyss below.

Man, I am writing something called RAMROD, that shit be craza, going to get its own blog site soon, its gaining good momentum. I have two hours today just to write in between jobs.

Based on just trying to keep a script going and no real plot, just a stream of conscious movie with thirty second scenes. The acts are into, conflict, resolution, and thats the whole plan.

TRAILER TALK

Didnt work on trailer last night, just cooked and goofed around.

Tonight maybe there will be some time, depends, but it is the early morning so I may just write tonight off too.

AND thus, Saturday morning is the only time I will really have.

So the plan will be to hammer back the caffeine Friday night and work late and then sleep, then work it, then back to Bucks, then repeat.

Or just mess with it when I get up Sat.

You all really dont need to know all this stuff.

One day Zombeak will be available to anyone who wants a copy.

Nice Weekend, Gooood weekend. Stay!

Thoughts on Horror

Horror is all about repression.

The repressed lashing out in the world.

The other that doesnt fit, whose needs are not met.

Repression is universal.

Society demands repression.

We are not allowed carte blanch in the world.

So we re-channel those wants into other areas.

You add frustration and then you have a nice recipe for a monster.

There is a lot of venting going on in a horror film.

Visual symbols that have affected us and must be purged.

Its all about cleaning the slate.

Shake the etch-a-sketch.

On to Zombeak!

Finished the transcription!!

Yee-haw!

So that was a real process, after I get a street date I will post the format so folks.

The plan is to make a pdf of all the various forms you will need and some instructions on how to go about the process of gathering deliverables.

Its not nearly as hard as I thought it would be maybe a little expensive.

Other Projects

I may start a blog for each of the projects, keep it separated. Organized.

It may force me to keep up on things because I will feel obligated to send in updates.

I LOVE THE BLOG!

I would start one on:

CLOWN VS MONKEY

VAMPIRE SPLITS

POOL SCUM

THE STUDY

WAR WOLF

HOUSE OF BROKEN DOLLS

KNUCKLE SANDWICH

GLAMANIAC

CHICK/CHACK

CHEESY ZOMBIE MOVIE

GIRLS GONE RABID

SPILLAGE

MAN IN MASK WITH KNIFE

MISERY DATE

KKK/666

SKETCH GUTTER for drawings

It doesnt hurt to write them down, doesnt hurt to share, and what ever picks up steam is the one I do next.

Kid stuff

video

BLOGAROO!

SO real quick,

The big deal today was getting the synch agreement mailed out to the distrib and their contract back out to them and the synch agreement back to Rickwood.

I found a new spot to hide at lunch, a place no one will find me. Kroger Starbucks has big empty chairs and a lot of white noise, and no one cares that you are there! I think they have free wi-fi, but I'll have to get back to you on that. Regardless, they are open 24 /7!

I found out that I could time my writing on outlook by writing in the subject of the calenders. It holds a lot, so when I say write for 15 minutes, by Joe, I mean it!

Tonight I work at Starbucks, and that's all good, cause once Im out, Ill be caffeined out the wazoo and will make a go of the transcription. No, I didnt get it done last night, but I did make the most awesome deep dish Chicago style pizza from screeezach, and had the family having foodgasms all over the place. It was the bomb.

I tossed an idea out to Mike Jazzy and he thought it rang cool, so we may finally have a project that we might collaborate on and make something out of. Right now just a script because it will just be fun to write it with him.

Other projects are really coming along too now that I am slowly moving away from chicken town. The most interesting one will be the slow void idea where the basic story is already out, and it would just be let the thing come out as it needs to. But it would be three people acting and one location. Well, there is an opening at a college art class and maybe a library scene, but beside that it is all at one spooky location at night.

One location really rocks, it really cuts down on the stress, and you can dig in and not worry about being gone the next day.

WHATEVER. All about the love anyway!

Also, at the McDS, she played Star Wars with a boy who called her Princess Lia! Cool, some kid’s being raised right!

 

I think Cameron will dig Swars. Sarah is okay with it, but ya know, she’s not predisposed toward explosions.

 

The question is… start with A New Hope or Phantom Menace?

 

I’ll have to ask around, I don’t want to start with the wrong one and ruin the kid.

Upcoming Dollar Movies!

August 15

 

Star Wars: The Clone Wars Vs. Mirrors Vs. Tropic Thunder

 

Ahh! Creepy horror, stupid funny comedy, weird Star Wars cartoon. The geek in me is having a nervous breakdown. I think Mirrors will be the best of them having just seen the red band trailer online and thinking it looks way weird and “wouldn’t it suck to have your jaw fall off in the bath” kind of vibe. I don’t like the character design in the Star Wars flick, but maybe if EVERYTHING is CG, maybe the acting won’t suck. Tropic Thunder, maybe. I want to see them all really, but Mirrors would be the choice if I gotta choose.

 

August 22

 

Death Race, that’s it, the end, best movie ever made... but I just read that they got rid of the points system from the original... to which I say... WTF!!!!!!!!!!

But still, Statham fan all the way, go Crank!, when he’s not oil wrestling dudes. Anderson gets a lot of crap because he is a fan boy dating a super model and making movies that the internet movie geeks wish they were making, I think he’s cool, Event Horizon is cool, and I like Soldier, and so whatever. His movies are fun, and Resident Evil is something you can play in the back ground and have a nice vibe to. Death Race will be more of the same, but will get points because of the Road Warrior vibe. Doomsday was my favorite movie this year. So that’s where I’m coming from here.

 

 

More later, I’m sleepy, BUT!

 

Here is the new easy breezy web portal!

Update from Suburbia

Here where we at,

 

I’m going to start a blog dedicated to fam stuff, one for reviews, and this one will be dedicated to zombeak and just whatever comes next, film wise.

 

But until then, here is an update from Suburbia!

 

Sarah is writing her letters now! She does H and L, but is hungry for more. She always wants me to draw with her in the mornings. I really try to encourage her imagination and this type of expression, because it can really get you through some tough stuff later on. But she’s precious; she’ll draw a letter and then go SEE! And then we give her a hug and fill her with positive reinforcement, go Sarah go.

 

Cameron crawls everywhere and is starting to be a real stinker. He’s get in Sarah’s stuff and make her squeal, and it’s cute. He wakes up now if Sarah wakes up in the middle of the night, which last night she did. Bad dream.  He was up with her so I attached him to Steph’s boob and went back to sleep. Cameron stayed with us all night, too sleepy to put him back down. Steph was drained this morning. So I brewed a giant pot of coffee.

 

Steph is drinking coffee now. Yay! She really has no choice with two kids pulling on her all day. It is either be a zombie all day, or be productive for a few hours before the crash. The crash has always been worth it for me. Just a few moments of inspiration and motivation occurring at the same time makes it all worth it.

 

She made peanut butter cookies with finely ground coffee mixed in and man it is like crack rock. Gives you a very nice caffeine buzz.

 

Steph and I never really get to hang much these days, even living together we hardly see each other. I work all the time, and if I’m home I usually need to be working on the flick, or Sarah wants to play, or Cameron wants to play, and Steph needs time away from changing diapers and wiping noses. We both look like beat down honkies in need of a vacation.

 

Zombie Parents, some people say you have to learn to tune them out, I see what they mean. It is a constant stream of weird with kids, and no time to do any of the things you used to think was so essential to how you defined happiness. It used to be that I HAD TO SEE a theatrical movie once a week or I got the shakes. Now, every time I find myself in a dark cool environment, I just want to sleep.

 

I do try to fit in writing in the mornings and at lunch and during breaks. It does make all the difference mentally, I can function amongst the humans if I get a story out or a list, a plan, a thought train, whatever. It unloads and wakes me up better then a shower.

Thinking of Ideas

Man am I ready to go home and chill.

Man am I ready to go see me some Death Race.

Man am I ready to finish the last fifteen minutes of movie transcription.

Man am I ready to get that synch agreement in.

Man am I ready to cut a new trailer together.

Man am I ready to write a new screenplay.

Speaking of that, I thought up something the other night that would be totally doable.

Necrofreak. Not the name of the movie but the name of something that should be a movie.

And it would all be about nothing, but you know.

Zombeak is a chatterbox that wont shut up, and besides Night of the Living Dead, most movies I love are long and slow and have just big pauses.

I was cutting Zombeak and realizing that most of this chatter is unnecessary because the music is doing all the work. The picture is nice, but it doesnt have emotional direction until the music is on it.

And you know, I have beautiful music in Zombeak that no one can hear do to all the talking and just overall business of the picture.

It was how it was designed to be, load and fast, but I want to do something slow and contemplative next.

Something where you just look and normal everyday stuff but it is terrifying because of some slight context and the music letting you know that you should be afraid. And it only strikes in the last few frames.

I guess Im looking to rip off Dont Look Now.

horrant 3

They sail out to sea on this fishing boat

The fishermen start acting funny, and then start acting like pirates and start saying that they are going to feed the ladies to their sea god, and they start chanting and restraining the girls, and then a giant gilled beast splashes out of the water and the pirates put the girls on a telescoping pole and dangle them in front of the beast. Things are looking bad when a jet powered doc bot swoops in and beats the crap out of the beast and takes the girls.
