More updates to come within the week!

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!

Taxi Driver Scene

Check it out here on the FILMS page and comment!

This short scene from Taxi Driver was made for my Directing Actor’s for Film Class at Salisbury. In the original film and screenplay, directed by Martin Scorsese and written by Paul Schrader, Travis Bickle is a marine honorably discharged from the service who lives in New York City. Over his time living there he develops an obsession with Betsy, a young office worker for the Charles Palantine Presidential Campaign. This obsession leads him to ask her out on a date. It sounds simple enough, but I chose this scene because of Travis’s underlying motives and Betsy’s ignorance– a by product of Travis’s off-beat charisma and her desires for things of the spectacular variety. The portayal of such was carried through beautifully by both actors, Roland L. and Emily J. Thomas from the future film makers club makes a guest appearance as an improvised Tom.

Written by Paul Schrader, Music by Bernard Herrman
Directed by Dylan Hintz
Starring Roland L and Emily J. Guest appearance by Thomas England.
