I want to give props to the great people who worked on the short film with me this weekend. It was an intense and an amazing experience and I feel we produced a product as good as anything to come out of a production with a real budget, even though we had almost none!
Filmmaking is many things. For me it is a career. I’ve been in this business for a long time, but only a few years making narrative pieces. I’ve covered the nut making documentaries, news magazine shows, commercial… Continue

I am not sure if I am bored or sad, its a similar feeling, I have been spending a lot of time on Facebook its like a high school reunion, I have also wanted to start writing again, but I can't seem to get anything out that makes sense, and I get easily distracted, I need ambition which has been lacking lately

We have started developing the opening title sequence for the film. It is an airplane landing on Moosehead Lake. You have to see it to understand the importance of the sequence. Indie film suffer from being treated as being "too small" they need to add a little "epic" to their "small" in order to compete. They need to give the sense of production value beyond the size of their budgets. Below are the first two stages of the design for the sequence.

Try to remember, people: It's 'pleaded guilty', not "pled guilty". Also, A person dying by rope around his neck is 'hanged', not "hung". Well, he could be hung, I guess. But that's a totally different meaning.

Originally I intended the story to be set in an ancient time, something resembling Greek and Roman eras but in a world similar to ours. After choosing two female leads I decided to involve martial arts into the story, no specific ones since I don't want to sterotype the story and since it doesn't take place on Earth. Being inspired by 'Kill Bill' and 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon', I realized the lack of female lead characters in an action genre type film set in a historical time. In other… Continue

Shot on RED.

Continuing the growing Knox Road trend of featuring artists who provide little to
no information about themselves (see: Hello, Broken Arrow and Manet,) I present
to you Antiqcool, from just outside Chester, England. As far as I can tell

Review by Mojophenia
The good old fashioned musical mystery, an audio collaboration that could easily be as complicated as the Enigma Code, a personnel puzzle to confuse the most ardent of reviewers. I..m sure Chester based Pete Smith refrains from masks and disguises but wonderfully composed collections of music, EP..s and albums are a growing… Continue
