FIRST CUT

First Cut was our introduction to the world of independent film making.

This is the video that started the madness.

 

Watching Darius step out of the stillness of digital photography to the realness of video became the catalyst for what we do today. 

 

We were also fortunate enough to meet and work with Derrick Bozkurt from House in Motion recording studio. When we handed over the video with no sound, the only thing we said to Derrick was "We want squidgey sounds!" The best part is he understood what we were asking and delivered a soundscape straight from the depths of Hell.

Film Factoid 1: This video was only intended to play with a few filters in Final Cut X and maybe see what it was like to edit. Found out we like it! 

THE WOODS

You just want to wind down after a hard day's work.

What's better than a beautiful Colorado sunset stroll with a joint and some good tunes?

Unfotunately, you interrupted him.

Stepping off the beaten path is a bad thing when you're in his woods.

 

Run for your life, Garett!!

Film Factoid 1: We didn't have as script. We didn't have a set location. Yep. We were wingin' it... 

Film Factoid 2: There were a bazillion mosquitos. And they attacked in swarms. Itchiest shoot ever. So far...

BEST FRIENDS

Wedding vows are forever vows.

But when one of the most sacred vows is broken, and with your best friend, what do you do?

 

The first of many-more-to-come collaborations with Handcarved Films, Best Friends, was our first scripted short film.

Film Factoid 1: Michael spent the entire time during the 2 nights it took to shoot, tied to the chair.

CA$HED

Green happiness, dispensed from a metal and plastic container. It's language a musical annoyance of beeps; each one is one step closer to holding the thing you most desire:

 

The Almighty Dollar.

 

The thing that makes the world go 'round.

 

The thing a man might kill for.

 

This 2 minute short was shot for the ABC's of Death 2 competition in September 2013

The first film we did that was shown on a big screen. In Nova Scotia!

It was also screened at

Atlanta Days of the Dead!

 

 

 

Film Factoid 1: The phone conversation that was used was one of the only ones that no one laughed during. Myke was in total tune with the 'douchebag' character we described to him when we said, "You just say what feels comfortable and we'll figure it out from there."

MOVIE NIGHT MANIAC

It's Friday night. The work week is done. All these guys want to do is kick back with a few beers, a couple of bong rips and a horror movie. What they get is so much more when they find themselves part of the story.

 

This 3 minute short was shot for the ABC's of Death 2 competition in August 2013.

World of Death

 

Film Factoid 1: The killer's mask is a silicone piece of Shelly's face. 

Film Factoid 2: We hold the distinction of being the only film to kill a character with frozen pizza rolls. A fact we are pretty damned proud of. 

'Cuz it's funny as hell...

 

COVET

When obsession becomes something more,

how far will one man go to get what he wants?

Film Factoid 1: Both Myke Illa and Ryan Sorrell were stand-ins for Michael during 

filming.

Film Factoid 2: The temperature in our garage while we were filming was in the upper 20's. We froze our asses off... Suffering for the art. Hell yeah!
