The original founding members of Strike a Pose!!! Films joined up last weekend for Saturday’s Annual Weenie Roast at Sam Anderson’s pad, wherein the majority of original Strike a Pose!!! members met up, ate weenies, and had GOOD TIMES! Here’s some pictures of the group, together at last, for the first time in years!

The only person we’re missing from the pictures now is the elusive Stuart DeMattia. NEXT TIME FOR SURE! Why not give him some respect by reading his bio and checking out the movie that started it all, The Third Path!

The Third Path also just happened to be filmed right around here, where this very picture was taken last Saturday!

Today it is time to once again eat a healthy portion of weenies with Sam Anderson, our amazing actor extraordinaire! Now I know what you’re thinkin- you’re thinking, “Dylan…that sounds kinda peculiar! Why would you be posting about eating weenies with Sam?”

Well fans and friends, it is a time honored tradition, and this year a lot of the cast and crew will be in one place at one time, so it’s gonna be a blast! Pictures will come later, I’m sure, but for now, we’re gonna let you imagine the greatness that’ll be flooding just one room- a room full of Sam Anderson, Dylan Hintz, Robert Novich, Robert Ramirez, Ryan Jacob, and a LOT of weenies!

Oh, and we’ll be doing our yearly viewing of Curse of Bodangofish, Clarity, and possibly even Line of Sight! Check out these great old classics and hit some comments, or share them on facebook or twitter with all of you friends!

Oh, and for all of you still wondering when the hell Curse of Bodangofish will come to the internet? I was planning on it this summer but we got booked with all the Max Action stuff and whatnot. However! There is still potential for a release by the end of the year! We just need to hear you begging for it!

Let me just start by wishing my friends at Salisbury University good luck, and give my best to the Future Film Maker’s Club, who you can find on Facebook as well-  they’re starting a new glorious year!

And in the News
This month has been our second-highest viewed month of all time in the history of the site, so we’re going to celebrate by trying something new.

STRIKE BACK! will be an end-of-month article that details everything we’ve posted over the course of the last month in terms of videos and essays, and also will mention other film maker’s we’ve gotten in contact with and would like to help promote.

The Strike a Pose!!! Films facebook group is still growing and is bigger than ever. We passed 150 members, so our next goal is 200, and eventually, over 9000.

We even have a new placeholder logo. Be sure to show it to your friends!


We also have been introduced and syndicated through our wonderful comrade website, Space Monkey Mafia Studios, where I’m writing under the alias Slinger. I know- so secretive! We’ll be posting more for that site soon, so keep an eye out on them- they have some great content!


This month’s STRIKE BACK is almost all about MAX ACTION, our MAN OF ACTION, who’s gotten his own page on the website, as well as his own Facebook Page.

Max will even start making appearances at Club Orpheus in Baltimore as an official mascot of N-Code (brought to you by Binary Gaming and Eclipse)! Don’t hesistate to find him before he finds you.

We’ve also added a CAST AND CREW page which is slowly growing, but by the end of September should be full of bios, link, new art images and more! Just check out Stuart DeMattia’s page for a sample- you could be next!

The forums, contact page, and comments have all also received updates. Hopefully by November we’ll have a new look and feel to the site as well to celebrate it’s 4 Year Anniversary.

New Max Action viral videos all over the net: Max Action at Otakon ’08, Max and The Joker Problem, Max Action Meets Naked Snake, Max Action in: What Otaku Want and a short remaster from the original, Max Action PSA 1: Video Games.

Moyo Fitness Teasers 1 and 2 for Self Mastery Systems. Check out their Youtube Page!


And I even found time to make a Halo 3 Skill Vid Demo featuring Neutralx2 , with a full video to come sometime in October, hopefully!

This month was GREAT for us, and September promises to be even more, well, PROMISING! So be sure to click those share buttons and show all your friends, cause they need to get in on this and STRIKE A POSE!!!

I was hanging out with our web developer, Neutralx2 the other night. We decided to dick around with his new captcha card and see if we could make a quick Halo 3 skill scene. It was fun to get my hands on the tools in the Halo 3 video production kit. Here’s some very quick results:

A full demo video will hopefully come in either by the end of this month or October.

In the meantime, here’s a link to the footage Neutralx2 put together himself.

There’s a lot going on behind the curtain at Strike a Pose!!! Here’s an example of something that will hopefully be coming soon to an internet near you!

Personally, it’s been a rough month for me, but thanks to our wonderful cast and crew and the support of loyal fans, things are finally coming back around, and I’m proud to announce SAP is getting ready to gear up for some exciting events!

All next week we’re going to try and bring you new content, leading up to the day when someone very special is going to make a big public appearance at OTAKON 2010. If you have any clue who we’re talking about, and you’re a fan of the guy, you should let him know where you’re gonna be. You might as well, it’d be a lot scarier if he were to track you down…

So we’ll have road trips, movie reviews, and promos for new content! Be sure to check the site regularly, and if you’re a fan, share us on Facebook and Twitter!
