We made some more commercials for Adam Reposa, Lawyer, TV Personality, Loud Person!


Here’s the first one, in case you ain’t been paying attention:

After the first one went crazy online, Adam Reposa became internet-famous.

All this exposure went to Repo’s unsuspecting head.   His cranium swelled like the Hindenburg.  Big as can be.  Also, some stuff happened that I don’t wanna talk about just yet.  But it does involve typical Hollywood douche baggery and some double-crossing.  Fun!

Anyway, in the middle of that douche-storm, Repo asked us to make another commercial.  Reposa’s idea for the new commercial was pretty hare-brained, IMHO.  The premise was to make a commercial addressing the recent ban of Big Gulps and large sodas in NYC.  Remember that?  It was news for about 1/2 a day.  We over at CCF felt that this commercial idea sucked.  People will forget about the Big Gulp ban as soon as the next dumb chunk of news comes tumbling down the mountain.  And also, where’s the crashing cars and breaking glass?  Lame.  But we’re cool, so we played along.  After shooting the commercial, more douche-baggery ensued as well as that double-cross I hinted at earlier.  We won’t get into it right now, but it may have affected Bob Ray’s ability to edit.

Drunk and exhausted from swimming upstream in the torrent of douche flow, Bob Ray overcame all and edited the new commercial like a champ.  Here it is:

Reposa didn’t like this version.  He asked us not to put it online.  Repo wanted it re-edited.  A few days later, and with Chad Holt (of Total Badass fame, and Reposa’s legal assistant now) as a middle-man, there was a bury-the-hatchet sort of moment where Bob Ray (being awesome and forgiving and stuff) agreed to re-cut the commercial.

Repo suggested some unwanted and unsolicited changes: “add the Star Spangled Banner,” “do more choppy editing, like the first one,” “make it less snobby and avant garde,” “have less cinematography,” etc.

Bob Ray and CrashCam Films thought those ideas sucked.

Anyway, here’s the revised version of the commercial:

So now everything’s cool.  Except that double-cross thing, that is.  That’s still not cool

Hey look, Repo recently landed on the local TV news.  Bob Ray is featured in the piece as “the unknown cameraman who makes Eastwood look so fine.”

More to come.  Or not.  Who knows?

A short film telling the whole story is in the can.  It’s tentatively titled “The Adam Reposa Saga.”

All good fun and games!

Hey look, we made a commercial for Adam “Bulletproof” Reposa.  You might remember Repo from Total Badass.  He’s the lawyer who gets Chad’s state-jail felony charge of hash possession knocked down to “emitting a noxious odor.”  Time served.  Done.

Anyway, here’s the commercial:

 

 

And here’s the trailer for Total Badass, just in case you forgot:

our brand new short film is having its world premiere at SXSW:

Saturday, March 10, 2012 at 11am
Canon Screening Room (aka Rollins) at the Long Center

Hey!  We’ve finished up two of the four short films!  Huh, you ask?  Well, aside from writing/directing/acting in the opening scene of the Slacker remake, screening Total Badass at some fests, and attempting to finishing up the Badass Tour Journal (not to mention non-filmmaking life), our goal for this year was to make four short films:
“Road Kill”
“Sacked”
“Kicked in the Teeth”
“Puppies v Kittens.”

And I’m happy to announce that we’ve finished the first two on that list!

That’s right, “Road Kill” AND “Sacked” are complete!

Next, we’ll finish up “Kicked in the Teeth” and then onto “Puppies v Kittens!”  After the four shorts, I plan to get to work on another feature script.  I’ve got a little flick in mind that I’m calling (at least for the time being) “Snakebit.”
