Eventually, all of our videos will find their home on this page, but at the very least the newest piece should be up here (it's also buried at the bottom of the landing page under a growing number of posts)
Urban Dictionary: The L-Bomb
New Years 2011, We resolved to shut up and shoot more. Enough writing scripts and trying to extract millions of dollars from people who invariably react with, "And who the F--K are these guys?!!" But running out and shooting a(nother) shoestring feature was not really in the cards, so the next best thing? Shorts! But what to shoot? Thankfully, the answer came in the form of some amazing actors (Gary Mahmoud and Michele McNally) cast for a completely different project and a briefcase full of loaner Zeiss lenses. The idea to make little films about Urban Dictionary terms seemed a natural. We picked one that each of us had some unfortunate experience with - dropping the L-Bomb.
Personnel: Josh and Pete
Greg: Gary Mahmoud
Minnie: Michele McNally
Too Soon Buddy: Allan Title
Music: Season of the Shark, Yo La Tengo
This is the first thing Pete and I ever made as a team. My cats still have not forgiven me. Odd note: The high-speed Arri 16 cam cost us $400 for the day, which sucked. But as we're rolling the last shot, we get a call to shoot a freelance job. Pay? $400. Damn, universe, stop balancing shit!
