INDIE GIRL Q & A WITH HEIDI VAN LIER – I AM F***ING OVERWHELMED!

Don’t be mad when you don’t get into your dream festivals. It doesn’t mean they didn’t like your film, it doesn’t mean your film wasn’t awesome, it just means you didn’t get in…

A YEAR WITHOUT RENT: DAY SIX OF “CXL”

I almost never read the scripts for these projects. Not because I don’t want to, but simply because it isn’t practical. On probably half of them I don’t even get a script, so that makes it easy…

A YEAR WITHOUT RENT: DAY FIVE OF “CXL”

When we last left Sean Gillane and his merry band of San Francisco pranksters, they were shooting green screen footage on the street…

A YEAR WITHOUT RENT: DAY TEN OF “FAVOR”

All through this production, I’ve heard tales of our “seedy motel” location, a place so vile and disgusting, they couldn’t even bring themselves to put me up there…

ALL GOOD THINGS COME TO AN END: DAY EIGHT OF FANTASTIC FEST 2011

Alas, the final day of Fantastic Fest has come around. Thinking back on the days before the festival, anticipation high, the world our oyster, and ready to conquer as many movies as we can in the allocated eight days, it all seems so long ago…

A YEAR WITHOUT RENT: DAY NINE OF “FAVOR”

Previously, on FAVOR: Paul Osborne drove us out into the desert with a shovel and told us to dig (what could go wrong?). Well, now we’re back at his house for a day of filming (it’s a scheduling thing)…

A YEAR WITHOUT RENT: DAYS SEVEN AND EIGHT OF “FAVOR”

We’re combining days here for the first time on A Year Without Rent for one very simple reason: nothing happened on day 7…

MOON MEN AND MILOCRORZE: DAY SEVEN OF FANTASTIC FEST 2011

It finally arrived, the penultimate day of the ultimate movie festival and the last full day of entertainment. It’s a day that would see the Drafthouse invaded by men in moon suits, a famous rock star, and another strong lineup of movies…

ANOTHER SLEEPLESS NIGHT IN SNOWTOWN: DAY SIX OF FANTASTIC FEST 2011

There should be a term for when the brain shuts down and everything you’ve done over the past week becomes a dream. That’s how I felt on Day Six of Fantastic Fest…

SUCH A FANTASTIC FEUD: DAY FIVE OF FANTASTIC FEST 2011

Day Five was highlighted with Cuba’s first horror movie, one of the worst things I’ve seen at the festival, one of the best things at the festival, the awards, a movie starring a blind man, and the annual Fantastic Feud game show…

ARCADE COMIN’ AT YA: DAY FOUR OF FANTASTIC FEST 2011

Halfway through the festival and that’s when a bit of sadness kicks in. It’s a similar feeling to knowing you have to go to work the next day on a Sunday night…

YOU’RE NEXT: DAY THREE OF FANTASTIC FEST 2011

By Day Three, things can start to become hazy when you’re seeing 5 movies a day at a festival. Downing several beers at the Highball in between is surely not helping the cause…

HEADHUNTING WITH EXTRATERRESTRIALS ON THE YELLOW SEA: DAY TWO OF FANTASTIC FEST 2011

Unlike the outlandish first day of films I had, the second day was wrapped up in more conventional storytelling…

PEDOPHILIA, EUTHANASIA AND HUMAN CENTIPEDES: DAY ONE OF FANTASTIC FEST 2011

Pedophilia, euthanasia, human centipedes and a slow burn thriller kicked off my Fantastic Fest on Thursday. Three out of the four movies I saw delivered and one… well, let’s just say it delivered on its promise, only to its detriment…
