Talking Shop :: Audio Commentary Tracks Now Available For ‘REPOSSESSION’ and ‘The Perpendicular’

For the 2 – 7 people out there in the world curious about the Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice process of short film-making, I have released audio commentary tracks for REPOSSESSION and The Perpendicular.  Myself, along with guests Troy Baham Jr.Tony Berg and Steve Jones discuss several aspects of the production of both films.

Hopefully, I will have the audio commentary ready and available for HELP ME in the near future, and I plan to make this a part of my production process from here on out.  If you like the videos, leave likes and comments, and share them around for all to enjoy!

Friendly Competition :: Other Entries From The San Marcos Cinema Club’s ’72-Hour Film Race’

Taking part in the 72-Hour Film Race, presented by the San Marcos Cinema Club, and being a part of a team that placed second, was a true honor.  Being connected to so many talented filmmakers and personalities was an equal honor.  Here are a few of the other entries that I managed to find on YouTube, including the contest winner How Art Makes You Feel

Dream Teams :: ‘The Perpendicular’, San Marcos Cinema Club And The 72-Hour Film Race

The San Marcos Cinema Club is quickly becoming one of the better fixtures in the town of San MarcosTexas.  The group holds a number of events and festival directly designed to promote and foster creative filmmakers in the city, as well as bring fans of film together to appreciate these creatives.  One of their recent events, the 72-Hour Film Race, recently took place.  I got together with a handful of friends and collaborators, we were given a set of prompts (sci-fi, barber scene, ‘EL RITO LIBERDADO DEL AGUA’, mural incorporation and a bonus location via a riddle), and we embarked upon the journey that resulted in The Perpendicular.  For something made in just under three days, I’d say we did pretty well… the judges thought so too, as we came in second place.  Check it out, share it, leave a like or a comment, and keep your eyes open for more fun from the San Marcos Cinema Club.

Depths Explored :: Faylita Hicks Presents ‘With No River’

If there is one thing that Faylita Hicks has never been afraid to do, it’s been the process of diving deep into any given topic, no matter how uncomfortable it may be, and exploring it with the detail and urgency it deserves.  I mention urgency because Faylita recently took part in the San Marcos Cinema Club‘s 72 Hour Film Race contest, and With No River was the result of her 72 hours.  Needless to say, I am excited to see what Faylita and her venture into the growth of her brand, Arrondi Creative Productions, brings forth.  Props to her for addressing the homeless situation in the central Texas corridor as well.

Dreaming Destiny :: Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice Drops ‘Money From Home’ Visuals

After many years of doing Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice videos totally solo (one-man crew), it was nice to finally be able to work with someone else for the production side of things.  That someone else was the incredibly talented independent filmmaker Jeffrey Garcia of Dream-Atomic Productions.  A fellow member of the San Marcos Cinema ClubMoney From Home was the opportunity for us to make something that would stand up to the quality of other independent work out there.  I had faith in the song and faith in the vision, and I knew that I could edit something strong together.  Jeffrey came through on the photography, and even lended a handful of solid ideas.  I am very happy with the effort, and very proud of the result.  Share it, and spread the word.
