Tag Archive: kicked in the teeth

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”
“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.”

“Road Kill” is complete! There’s even an imdb page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2083318/

We shot a bit more of “Sacked” last night. It turns out that this film (involving sack puppets) is way more complex than I would have thought and is taking a good deal longer to complete. I hope that we can finish production on the short tomorrow night. And I aim to have a good first cut by Monday. I’ll keep you posted!

After “Sacked,” we’ll finish up “Kicked in the Teeth” and then onto “Puppies v Kittens!”

Here’s an update:

Scene 2 (of 2) is edited and looks great! The trickier of the two scenes, scene 2 involves the guns, blood, fire and both puppets and humans. Scene 1 is all puppets and torture. We’ve yet to shoot scene 1, but I have in my (temporary) possession, a Canon 7D, with which I will shoot scene 1 over the next week or so.

“Road Kill”
The lab is re-transferring the film today (they messed up the original transfer). Hopefully, we’ll have the footage back in our grubby little hands and will edit the thing together starting on Friday.

“Kicked in the Teeth”
The above pic is from the doc-in-progress “Kicked in the Teeth.” KitT is just laying around waiting to be edited. Once I finish up “Sacked” and “Road Kill,” I’ll hop to it and cut KitT together.

“Puppies vs. Kittens”
No new progress on this one. However, once we make sure that we’ll have funding, we’ll kick this one into high gear. It’s prepped and ready to be animated.
