Archive for Cast Notes

It’s a couple of days late, but keeping up with tradition I’d like to wish cast and crew member Rob Ramirez a belated Happy Birthday from STRIKE A POSE!!! Films.

As per part of his birthday present, I will release a horribly amusing picture from the Gallery for the whole of the internet to see!

Rob has been with STRIKE A POSE!!! Films since the early days, starring in such wonders as Locked Blades and the now-classic “Joe Belivitz in: Car Trouble.” His most recent cinematic achievement was starring with the guys in Line of Sight (pictured above) for which he also garnered a credit as Fight Choreographer.

Also in celebration, Rob’s Cast and Crew page has now gone live. Rob is the second cast member to receive such an honor, so be sure to check it out and congratulate him, as well as give him his best on this most holiest of occasions!

Thanks Rob, and Happy Birthday, without you, we certainly couldn’t STRIKE A POSE!!! WACHAAAA!

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!

SCENE: Lakeforest Mall, Gaithersburg MD.

A little over three weeks ago I participated in a final round audition for a modeling contest hosted by the American Mall Model Search. The grand prize was a one year contract with Model Productions, a company that’s been around for over 25 years and has produced loads of successful actors and models.

The contest required the completion of three tasks:

A photo shoot

Photo touch ups courtesy of Elizabeth Harvey, who we’ll have a post about next time!

A runway walk featuring personalized clothing

And a talent performance (for me, acting!)

I was nervous as hell, but I knew because of my history with Future Film Makers, Six Flags, Al Thompson’s project, the various indies I’ve been working on and the undying support of my family and friends, I would at least have a shot. Good thing all the training I’ve been doing with Self Mastery Systems at least let me feel like my body belonged there…

Special thanks also go out to a mentor of mine, Kevin Christy, who sent me this email regarding how I should approach the monologue contest:

in a situation like this, don’t over do it. people make the mistake of trying to showcase every talent they have as opposed to just acting what’s appropriate to the piece. there are a a million monologues out there, it doesn’t matter so much which one you do. it matters how comfortably you execute it […] try to enjoy yourself, performing when its done correctly is extremely fun. don’t worry about it . the life of a performer is filled with performances, there is no “most important” one. they are all the same.

Truer words of wisdom are very rarely spoken!

Then I saw all these beautiful young women dancing and singing, and videos of chiseled Adonises up on the monitor, I got pretty nervous pretty quick. My talents only extend as far as my pronunciation and occasional comedic timing (which usually involves flailing my arms around like a madman), hence me not usually starring in the Strike a Pose!!! Films you see on this site.

But when it came down to it, I worked my butt off and with help from my girlfriend, who had complete and unyielding faith in me (I know, I’d say she’s pretty crazy too!), I managed to win over the audiences with my performances, and get marks high enough from the incredibly supportive judges, sending me up into the heavens towards stardom!

Well, at least let’s hope so!

Once again, thank you to all my family and friends who helped out, I couldn’t have done this without you!

Today is Mother’s Day and in celebration of my mom, I put forth the effort and made a little video to congratulate her on a recent victory over morning radio:

Thanks Mix 107.3 for making this possible, and

Thank you Mom, for giving me everything– life, love, and lots of support towards making cool little things like this for you! Happy Mother’s Day!
