Grasshopper has been getting into radio plays, BIG TIME.  He's been listening to The Adventures of Ruby over and over again, for instance.

So he wanted to make a radio play, and he and Rocky are putting together some little tests to garner the skills needed.  Here is the first test.

Some of you might recognize the voice of the "damsel in distress"...what can I say?  A voice actor I'm not.  :-)

Pray for Daylight will be playing at the Riverview Theater in Minneapolis, MN

 

Thursday, June 28th at 5:30 PM.

 

I admit, it isn't an easy day/time to get into Minneapolis...but it's FREE FREE FREE!

 

Featuring original music from local music phenomenon Jagged Spiral. (I just want to hear what Conrad Zero says about being called a "Phenomenon" chances are, something acerbic.  Just guessin')  Oh!  and Conrad of Jagged Spiral also plays "The Vampire Most Likely to Freak You the Hell Out! In phonetic Serbian!"

 

And it's not every day you get to see Rockford Lhotka playing a menacing Serbian gypsy guard.

 

And I'm in it, playing the role of "Most Usless and Pathetic Vampire EVER!"  (Tony thought it would be funny, since I was the fight choreographer)

 

So get your cookies down there and take a gander.  I guarantee the quality will impress you much more on the big screen than it does on Google Video.

 

I'm going to be there, as are many of the cast/crew.

 

Come and see what a bunch of geeks can do with too much time on their hands and a digital camera.

Here is one of our very first films.  It is called "The Thing That Happened".  It is based on the experience one sometimes has when watching some pretentious foreign language Art Films that, as our website says "make you cry a little bit inside".

I did Kraft Services for this (make-your-own taco buffet...which I am told sounds dirty, but hey, it was a taco buffet I can't think of another way to say it.  So there you are.  Any dirtyness you percieve is purely the result of your filthy mind.)  I also was part of the crowd beating up the guy at the end, and I am reflected in the window in one of the scenes...a shadowy figure holding a sword.

 

 

enjoy.

 

 

Oh yeah, and the "film flaws" were added digitally for artistic effect. The movie was filmed digitally.

Pray for Daylight got a good review from Rogue Cinema!

 This is the movie in which I was the Fight Choreographer, Stunt Coordinator, bit player, and one of several Dolly-cam luggers (beasts of burdon affectionatly referred to as Dolly Llamas)

I also played cello in one of the bits of music.

 

This was such a fun piece to work on.

See that devilish-looking guy sitting there at a desk with headphones on?  That is my friend, Conrad.

Conrad, his bewitching S.O. X-tina, and a number of his friends (many of whom worked on the soon-to-be-available Pray For Daylight), entered the 48-hour film festival.

They created a fun sci-fi/suspense short entitled Conspiracy Hour.

Go ahead and watch it.  Don't forget that it was made in 48 hours, start-to-finish.  Amazing.  It's short, it's cool, and it's finished.  In 48 hours.

Did I say amazing already?  Oh, did I mention the original score they created?  In the same 48 hours that they were assigned their film requirements, wrote/shot/edited the film?

If you don't find that amazing, you have no wonder in your soul.  Just give up.  Join the Republican party, buy a Winnebago and a sweatsuit with words stamped on the ass.  Let your soul sink comfortably into the great, somnolant multitude of shambling consumeristic zombie masses.

A couple of people have asked me if I've heard of the 48-hour movie festival.  I have, indeed.

In fact, I recently found out that Conrad Zero and some of his friends did a movie for the festival.

I can't wait to see it.

Below are the links to his entries about the exerience:
