I’ve been digging up some films that kind of have a similar vibe as Tweekers doing some research as we are gearing up for beginning production and came across this gem.
Mostly I have been looking for projects that share the same kind of production elements and character driven performances just getting an idea as to what people are doing in natural urban settings in tight / close spaces and how we’ll be tackling the cinematography.
When I found this on Netflixs It looked like a pretty low budget dumb film I would probably deem SbiG worthy and maybe get a little bit of “what not to do” information out of it. I was actually pretty surprised to find is was actually pretty freakn hilarious. I was laughing pretty hard through out it. I might be a little bias after working on the game “Trailer Park Tycoon” where I got to see some of the real life counterparts to some of the characters going on here, but It was actually a really good low budget comedy, with some great lines and tons of iconic ridiculous moments in it.
This is a Canadian TV series that’s been going on for 7 seasons or something…and has two films based on the series all starting from a B&W short film that was submitted to a film festival.
I’m sure I’ll have to subject Cornbread to it one of these days, but if interested in watching a pretty fun low budget comedy you should give it a shot. It definitely has some good stuff in there.
In other news, we got the screen printing on the Postal Mail Bag which turned out O.K., Not quite as accurate as I was hoping for due to printing on Canvas but I think it looks close enough to work for what we’re doing here. Shannie will be sewing in the lining and finishing the edge work and I’ll post up some picks.
I got that ridiculous leather two toned coat in the mail as well as the 80s nylon parachute pants yesturday and it again looks just as ridiculous as the auction photos…so were really close to doing the promo photoshoot coming up.
