Hello from the CrashCam Films Global HQ. Here’s what we’re up to:

Rock Opera DVD deal inked in bongwater
Like a gravity bong from hell, this DVD will blow your brain! That’s a threat and a promise… Problem is, you’ll have to wait until March of 2005 to get your sticky lil’ fingers on it.

The powerhouse team of GoKart Films, Hoverground and Koch Entertainment defeated all others in a heated battle for the Rock Opera DVD rights. The frenzied bidding war allowed us the leverage to demand that all kinds of weird stuff be included on the Rock Opera DVD. Little gems like “The Adventures of Donald Starkland” and “Night of the Kung Fu Zombie Bastards from Hell!” and several other kick ass shorts can be found in the jam packed “Old Stupid Shit” section of the DVD.

We’ve got some of those boring audio commentaries that all the kids are into these days. But we messed up again. We went and got all wacky and recorded the Rock Opera Drinking Game by mistake. Eight of the key players in the film gathered and followed these rules while watching the flick:
1. When you hear “Dude,” “Fuck,” or “Man” – you take one drink.
2. When you hear or see a band name – you take a bong hit (then pass the bong (you greedy bastard) so the next person can take a hit when another band name is mentioned).
3. Whenever Toe gets slapped around – you take a shot of booze.

Seconds after recording the drunk game we got the bright idea to record The Stoner Jam Track with Tia Carrera What happened was Austin’s heaviest instrumental combo came in and laid down a blistering 90 minute jam while watching the flick (sorta like The Wizard of Oz and Pink Floyd thing, but all kick ass and shit).

But wait, there’s more… there are tons of music videos, behind the scenes featurettes, trailers and kick butt short films…

Werner’s Birfday Rock Show: Friday, October 29 at Beerland

A Memo from the desk of Werner “Beardo” Campbell (producer “Hell on Wheels”):

Hello Friends and Family!
I will be celebrating my B-day at Beerland this year and would love to see all y’all. Come see some of my rockin’ friends perform as well as the hairy-est costume I have ever worn!
THE COSTUME:
Back in the 1850’s, a man named Werner Campbell became a legend. He was a gentle man who was forced to leave civilization behind and journey deeper into the wilderness than any white man had ever been. And though he was alone and hungry, with little hope for his own survival, he risked his life to save an orphaned bear cub. He was a special man, with an incredible ability to make friends with wild animals. He became known as Grizzly Adams (www.grizzlyadams.net for the song).

THE BANDS::::::
The Platforms at 11pm
Shinola at Midnight
Crow at 1am

Hillbilly Doomsday
The fine folks at the New York Underground Film Festival (www.NYUFF.com) screened Hillbilly Doomsday at their super-fine film festival in March. Check their web site for more info. Hillbilly Doomsday is the darkly comedic and brutally funny short film of Texas first murder of the new millennium. Based on a true story.

Music Videos

The DamBaby video screened at the South by Southwest film festival in the Music Videos program.

Riverboat Gamblers
We shot a music video for the Riverboat Gamblers’ bad ass song “What’s What.” It’s a nice little live action vid shot on Super 8 film. The video is done and dubs are being made. Hopefully, you’ll see it on the small screen soon. We’ll keep you posted.

HeKill Three music video update.
We’re getting it all together. Really we are. They’re putting the finishing touches on their upcoming album and we’re planning the video right now. Hopefully we’ll be shooting this video in the next two weeks… We’ll keep you posted.

We’ve got a lot more music videos coming up for some great bands, but until they’re locked down for sure, I’ll keep my lip buttoned. If you wanna be involved in some of these upcoming projects, check back here for updates and info and you’ll be the first to know.

The Down Side
The first draft of this twisted dark comedy-caper flick is done!!! It’s 113 pages of ass kicking, double crossing, rock and roll fueled caper goodness. I’ve started a web page for it and it has limited info, but check it out at http://www.crashcamfilms.com/thedownside.htm

Hell On Wheels
We’re looking at wrapping up principal photography on this feature length documentary about the roller derby movement afoot here in Austin, TX some time in the next few months. We’ll probably grab a few shots here and there while we’re in post and we’ll definitely be keeping our ears open to the happening in the roller derby world as we get into the editing process as they are a lively bunch.
