'Down The Hatch:' Fantastic Fest Bumper (2011)
Production: The theme for this year's Fantastic Fest bumper competition was 'Altered States' which means... well, I'm not really sure what it means. But I think I do. Kev pitched me an idea which was so bizarre, that I just had to see it, so I pushed him to round up the boys and go shoot the damn thing. And Kev didn't disappoint. He directed the whole thing in an afternoon and then uploaded me all the footage via FTP that night. Then all day Sunday I edited it together and we finished it in time for the Monday deadline.
Story: A distraught young man awakens from a nightmare for a very peculiar breakfast. How do you want your eggs?
Credits: Directed & Shot by Kevin Kolsch. Edited by Dennis Widmyer. Starring Jamey Lord & Joshua Chaplinsky.
'Procrastination' Commercial For LitReactor.com (2011)
Production: On October 1st I am launching a new website venture called LitReactor.com. The site will feature a writers workshop, monthly classes taught by published authors and industry professionals, and a bustling online magazine. To help promote the launch of the site, I had the idea of shooting a sort of promotional commercial. With Kevin in town that week for the Script Pipeline awards ceremony (our script 'Shed' was a finalist) we got together with Brian and cranked this whole thing out in 8 hours straight.
Story: This is the first promo in a series we have planned to cover the different obstacles writers face when committing to their craft. In it, a man deals with the writer's most teasing seductress... procrastination.
Credits: Directed & Shot by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer. Edited by Dennis Widmyer. Starring Brian James Fitzpatrick.
'Laundry Day:' Short
Production: This is a 83 sec short horror film shot with the Canon 7D. It was primarily done as something fun and fast, as a way to test the camera. We shot it in under 2 hours. No color correction. F/s jacked up to increase the darkness levels and add more contrast. Not sure what the aperture was or ISO. For equipment, we just had one zoom lens, a $100 tripod and one light.
Story: A woman encounters a strange creature in her basement while doing the laundry.
Credits: Directed by Kevin Kolsch & Dennis Widmyer. Shot by James Lord. Starring Ann Lord & Brian James Fitzpatrick.
