How To Make A Movie In A Week - Part 1

Identical Dead Sisters - 'How To Make A Film In 1 Week'

During the second half of the summer of 2008, I was home visiting family in NY, as I'm accustomed to do.  I was there to celebrate birthdays, go on vacations, and just bum around the pool.  But I began to realize that there was something else I could and probably should have been doing as well: making a film!  Unfortunately this idea only popped into my head with about a week left before my flight back to LA.  

Now, I know what you're saying.  "Just make a film?  Really, Dennis, it's just that easy?  Suuuure."  Your next thought may be, "And in one week?  Now you're just speaking that white man's voodoo."  Well, let me clarify a little:  It was going to be a short film.  Obviously.  (don't you feel stupid now?).  And yes, you CAN make a film in a week.

See, this first blog of mine is going to be about a  lot more then just how we made 'Identical Dead Sisters' in one week.  It's going to be about that intangible drive we call ambition and how it can consume you sometimes and blind you to how easy it is to just get - shit- done.

So there we were.  Kevin and I, sitting at my laptop.  Gestating ideas.  Something you learn, being a writer/director, is that you can't always just write anything down on the page.  The man dove through the plate glass window, stumbling into a roll.

This might be a fun scene to shoot, but it immediately raises the following concerns:&nbsp » Read more

"Identical Dead Sisters" DVD screener

As of this past week, Kevin and I have finished Identical Dead Sisters.  This was a short film we co-directed in August 08 that we're both very proud of.  Here's the synopsis:

When nefarious pimp and suburban scumbag, Lloyd "Cutty" Crothers poured acid on the face of his best girl, Jenny Penderschmidt, just before cutting her head off, he crossed a line. Hell, he crossed about three of them! Because Jenny had a sister. An identical twin sister named Edith. And Edith is someone you don't want to incur the wrath of. Now, with her mission before her, Edith decides to drop in on Lloyd's pool party, with the intent of avenging Jenny's murder... and maybe earning a little personal absolution while she's at it.

We will be posting the full movie online soon.  But that may have to wait if we enter it into any film festivals that require pure premieres.  Till then, if you are someone in the industry who is interested in seeing the movie or somebody who would like to possibly review it, please contact us for a screener.  Please be ready to provide any credentials as we unfortunately don't have enough copies to just send them out to general, interested parties.
