Archive for STRIKE A POSE!!! Films

Back last semester I was in a class called Magazine Video production, wherein I would have to make a video skit every couple of weeks. You guys have already seen Man of Action, Taming the Wild Mare, and Gull-Man, I’m sure. Well, the other half of that class was some serious documentary-making exercises. The first two of which you saw were the Future Film Makers Spotlight and the GUC Spotlight. These sorta films demonstrate the other half of the biz that I can honestly say I’ve put just as much effort into as the narrative side.

As weird as the class was, because of all the hard-drilled schedules, quality demands and competitive environment, I really got a LOT out of it. So now I bring to you the culmination of both fields- the DocuDrama. It’s a real category folks, its on Comcast.

This documentary was “written” by Scott Evans and Dylan Hintz. I’m the narrator and Scott and I both did the interview sequences. Big freaking hand goes to Scott on the editing. He was really the back bone behind this thing. I was just the pretty face. I’m really proud of this video though, it netted us both some of the only A’s in the class.

It’s been nearly a month, and we’ll have a slew of new videos up! First is this gem, GULLMAN: DEFENDER OF SALISBURY! To check it out and comment on the films page, click here.

Made for both the Future Film Makers Club and Gull’s Eye View, “Gullman: Defender of Salisbury” is the last comedy skit directed by Dylan Hintz for PAC 14.

After weeks of criminal unrest in the Salisbury University Area, the campus is in utter disarray! Thankfully, the Allegiance of Super Heroes has sent in one of their best champions, Gullman (who just happens to fit the theme of the campus), to help clean up crime and save the day! Little does he know what lay in store for him. Based around an interview with local news-figurehead Robert Queue- “Gullman” breaks into many different forms of media and is one of the more complex works crafted by the Future Film Makers.

Many special thanks go out on this one:

Stephanie Kratz for designing, making, and fitting the AMAZING Gullman costume, as well as Teleprompter work
James Howe (Gullman) for putting up with everything.
Philip Krocheski (Robert Queue) for filling in at the last minute for a spectacular end!
Matt Horst (Gangsta Gangsta) for playing an amazingly accurate portrayal of a SU thug
Keith Mathias (Steve the College student) for playing an amazingly accurate portrayal of an SU student
Jason Brown and Amber Todd for studio help!
Sam Anderson for the use of his track “Thrasher”
And everyone else who showed up to make this project as great as it is!

So much to talk about and so little time. But here’s the gist of it:

We’ve been doing a LOT of hard work.

New videos will becoming up soon, with Gull Man and Jasper Conroy, plus footage from the set of An Old Hope trip that I took last month.

I’m incredibly busy with this festival, as you can see, but hopefully it’ll all pay off! We’ve got a lot of entries and we’re making a big name not just for the club, but for film making in general through this amazing festival!

Over in Salisbury we’ve been working on a new series with a new character called Jasper Conroy: Salisbury Bounty Hunter. Story’s about a man named Jasper, who lives in an old house and does nothing but sleep, drink, watch TV and bounty hunt when he’s called upon by the local mob bosses and police forces.

Jasper uses extreme measures to get the job done, but rarely speaks a word. He’s just your typical hard drinkin, soft spoken, bad ass crazy dude with too much time on his hands and a kitchen table littered with guns.

The movie will be episodic, with the first introduction episode being released later this week. Look out for it, its going to be great! Starring Thomas England, Dylan Hintz, John Dougherty, and Phil Krocheski.

This is a new video of the Future Film Maker’s Club, talking about who we are and what we do. It’s not a traditional movie, but it got Scott (The Hitman and Sgt Steve Johnson from various Future Film Makers movies) an A for our second episode of Gull’s Eye View, the student run TV show at Salisbury University.

In it, I interview Matt Horst, Dr. Michael Moeder, and Thomas England. If you’re interested in learning more about the club, all of that info in the video is up to date, and you can also email me at:
