2 reels [27 Apr 2006|09:50pm]

Tomorrow we will begin shooting on our latest short film (unnamed as of yet), and will add yet anothers project to the many already under our belts. The latest will be a 200 ft. 16mm b/w film. though some may have been dissapointed with the last product we issued, i guarantee this short will not let you down. The film will be shot in its entirety tomorrow, April 28, 2006. It will be sent to LA for processing on Monday and should return either the end of the week, or begining of next at the latest.

So keeps your eyes open, because in less than two weeks, this project will be complete and ready for public consumption.

Hope you enjoy.

Have a nice day.

Right now Kyle and I are in MMTH 227 putting the finishing touches on "12 at 3," our first all-celluloid, 16mm production. This hot new joint will soon be up on ourmedia.org for your enjoyment. Read 'em and weep.

Alright friends, this is it.

School is coming to a close, and i think we are all grateful for that.

There are a few things i want to talk about.


I know some of you may think that this may never even be released, but yes, it will. As most of you know, the editing has mostly been completed, and completed for a while now. we are currently waiting on a score from Daniel Robison.
Ar about 2 AM last night, i started watching the rough cut, and let me just say, i got excited about this project all over. the break from it was healthy, but now, im ready to get this one finished and out.
Im afraid that some people may not share my excitement for this project, even daniel, so I rediscovered and idea that i think we should do.


I think in order for some people to get excited about this project again, a brief trailer could do the trick.
So this is what im asking:
I know most of you have seen an earlier cut of the movie, so you can help, i need ideas of what to include in the trailer. Does anyone want to lend some brainpower and come up with a small storyline for the trailer? Or some of you throw in some ideas? I think once we do this, everyone will start to come around to this project again, so any help you give will be deeply appreciated.


With our recent Wiki deletion, our public exposure has taken a hit. So we'll have to think up something to do there. Maybe of the Spare Tire Entertainment page that goes to RFC, we can just have that our main page for now. I saved the HTML, so that might be a quick fix for now.


If you think we're dieing, well, im sorry, we're not. recent discussions of our next project have gotten a few of us exited about the future, and you should be, too.

My speech [11 Aug 2005|09:46pm]

Today, as part of my assignment, I gave an imaginary toast to the members of RFC, congratulating them on their first hit movie. I recalled some of the moments of old movies, and even showed everyone a picture of Fanny Pack. I hope that one day, I get to give this toast for real.

As Soon as You're Born Progress Report [14 Jul 2006|11:46pm]

[ mood | film on my mind ]

So - tonight I blocked out what we still have to shoot for AS SOON AS YOU'RE BORN - and -

...surprisingly we have the movie about 65-70% finished. Who would have thought?

I get laid off in 1 or 2 weeks, and with all that free time - WE WILL BE ABLE TO GET THE MOVIE DONE. There is no doubt about it.

Let me break it down for you -

-There are many little shots that I will catalog - small little things that take almost no time at all. I will say, there are less than 10 of these. - 2 days to shoot all

-There are 2 things we have to reshoot - but can do anytime (interior) - 1 day

-Big blocks 1) Mt. St. Francis (which will just take time) 2) Beth's scenes - which I am very very excited about 3) The Ending 4) Us talking in lawn chairs - These each will take 1-2 days to shoot. = 8 days

-2 or 3 middle sized scenes that can be shot in less than one day. = 2 days

AND THE THING IS - if we get all interiors done - then we can even shoot little things we missed in December - IF WE HAVE TO - but I don't envision this being the case.

See? We have almost got this thing wrapped up - just one big push and WHAM - its done. Think about how the finished product. I mean, actually having this monster done. I think if we pull this off, Rabbit will have definitely reached new heights in our ability to make films. Something this long and involved - you know, getting it done - wow, guys - seriously, that will be an accomplishment. I can't wait.

Thank you for all your help. I could not do this without you guys.

A new idea [06 Jun 2005|03:30pm]

I've started work on the script for a short film I plan to finish, tentatively titled The Death of George Lucas. It will probably take me a long time, and I don't even know how to set the thing up (I'll need to get with Eric to discuss scriptwriting, etc. because I have no clue about it), but I'm serious about this movie. I know it sounds stupid, but to me, it's important. I don't have anyone in particular in mind yet, but I'm pretty excited to start on this.

What do you guys think?

Your name caught my eye because, as a vaguely amusing coincidence, I make films with rabbits.
Not real ones you understand, it's stop frame animation with puppets and the like.

It's just a hobby, but there's a few clips on my profile.

Otherwise I just thought I'd say hello!

Ladies and germs,

I have a lot of music and nothing to do with it. I will gladly submit some of my original compositions for the soundtracks of any upcoming projects.

Let me know,

[ mood | 7up+ ]

Well, although "The Passport" came up empty-handed at the Union Board Student Film Festival (they probably thought it didn't look "professional"; translation: didn't suck enough Telecom dick), That doesn't diminish the fact that RFC #006 was shown in front of at least 100-150 people in a full-scale movie theater, on a big screen, thus providing us with by far the most exposure we've yet received. And in case you were wondering, yes, the words "RFC 006" did, in fact, appear on that same big screen for all the world to see.

Next up: Documentary

Big announcement.

RFC #006: "The Passport" will be screened in competition at the IU Union Board Student Film Festival on Friday, April 8, 2005, in Whittenberger Auditorium. To my knowledge, this will be the first RFC production ever to be screened at a public festival, and the first to be shown on a big screen.

The world is our oyster, folks.

Ask and ye shall receive.... [15 Feb 2005|12:04pm]

[ mood | pumped ]

Officially signed onto "The Park (Working Title):"

Blake Thomas: Director
Background: After trying his hand at other mediums of artistic expression, Blake is making his directorial debut with "The Park (Working Title)," a seminal film set in a park in northern England set to be shot this summer.

Paul Lieber: Assistant Director
Background: Paul is a former NYU student that has worked with cinema for awhile and has many years under his belt. In addition to his love of making films, he is a professional critic and perfectionist that will undoubtedly bring professionalism to the project.

Peter Bailey: Actor
Background: Peter is a student of film at the Savannah College of Art and Design. His experience with film and acting will more than likely be a valuable asset to "The Park," although he is not cast for a particular role as of yet.

Eric Condon: Cinematographer
Background: This man needs no introduction. With his directorial and screenwriting debut "Filth and Degradation," he single-handedly ushered in a new era of cinema.

Let's keep this train rollin'. Anyone else up for helping out on this?

The Culture Industry: Entertainment as Mass Deception [11 Jan 2005|09:37pm]

[ mood | swimming in bullshit ]

For some reason, in my Studies in American Culture: Pop Music class, the first reading we have to do is about the American entertainment industry in general, and it's all academic bullshit sort of stuff, but I came across some stuff in here about film that as I was reading I was thinking of RFC and laughing. I figured everyone, especially Eric would get a kick out of it as well...
"Real life is becoming indistinguishable from the movies. The sound film, far surpassing the theater of illusion, leaves no room for imagination or reflection on the part of the audience, who is unable to respond within the structure of the film, yet deviate from its precise detail without losing the thread of the story; hence the film forces its victims to equate it directly to reality. The stunting of the mass-media consumer's powers of imagination and spontaneity does not have to be traced back to any psychological mechanisms; he must ascribe the loss of those attributes to the objective nature of the products themselves, especially to the most characteristic of them, the sound film. They are so designed that quickness, powers of observation, and experience are undeniably needed to apprehend them all; yet sustained thought is out of the question if the spectator is not to miss the relentless rush of facts. Even though the effort required for his response is semi-automatic, no scope is left for the imagination. Those who are absorbed by the world of the movie--by its images, gestures, and words--that they are unable to supply what really makes it a world, do not have to dwell on particular points of its mechanics during a screening. All the other films and products of the entertainment industry which they have seen have taught them what to expect; they react automatically."
I thought this was a bit harsh. Towards movie makers and viewers. What does anyone else think?
P.S. One thing I did get out of this essay: People should definitely start using the word "screening" in conversation about movies. ex.: "Yeah, we went to a screening of The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou yesterday," and so on.

Okay, here's the skinny. I figured I'd post because Daniel did.

I finished a screenplay last night. There's no title yet, and it still has a few bugs that need to be worked out of it. Still, I have two issues...

Issue 1. When the movie will be shot. I want it to be shot in conjunction with Daniel's movie over the summer. This may or may not happen, but what I do know is that I want it to be shot over the summer.

Issue 2. Casting. Although I will play the lead role, I want new faces. If there can be any help in this at all, please let me know. I don't know anyone that will yet want to be in it, but if you guys know of anyone that would be great.

[ mood | McGriddle ]

Work has begun on RFC #007. Its working title - "Second Revision".
This project is to follow the short documentary chronicling RFCs trip to Memphis, TN to TCB. This willconstitute RFC #006. That short film is currently without a title. Early May has been chosen for filming and editing.
RFC #007 is to be written and directed by Daniel Robison. The shooting will take most of the summer. Casting will be announced in a few weeks.
Eric continues to consider ideas for his next script in between fighting mono. The RFC family wishes him the best for a speedy recovery. Rumors that Eric is writing a film about his sickness are unsubstantiated and baseless. Hang in there, partner.

New LJ icons will be posted in the next few days.

major announcement [08 Dec 2004|05:06pm]

[ mood | Subway ]

This is tentative, but plans were discussed tonight for a possible January release of "The Wedding Video" and "Fear Not a Wounded Name" in a double-feature dvd. Such a release would be enormously helpful to RFC "fans," corralling these two rare and sought-after projects into an easily accessible item. Also, the fact that these two short subjects total 22 minutes together leaves plenty of space on the disc for extra and deleted material, featurettes, etc. More to come on the joint release of RFC #003 and #004 in the near future.

[ mood | satisfied ]

For those on the list who don't know, RFC CINEMA No. 003 "The Wedding Video," a short film written and directed by Daniel, is now officially complete. The film, which lasts 5:30 and is silent, will be, if all goes according to plan, available for download as a Quicktime file from this source sometime soon. The film is shot on digital video (NOT mini dv), and is presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.33:1. Details coming soon.
