We’re screening Slacker 2011 at Texas A&M.  For reals:

‘Slacker 2011’ at A&M

The Film Studies Program at Texas A&M will present the local premiere of SLACKER 2011, the all-new reimagining of Richard Linklater’s classic indie hit, SLACKER.  In 1991, Richard Linklater’s SLACKER inspired a generation of American filmmakers by exploring the subculture of Austin, Texas in a loose narrative with a tapestry of quirky characters. Twenty years later, SLACKER 2011 is a modern remake of Linklater’s original, similarly spotlighting the diverse individuals who continue to “Keep Austin Weird.”

Directed by 24 Texas filmmakers, SLACKER 2011 is a stream-of-consciousness chronicle of a day in Austin, presenting the city-dwellers, “dragworms,” and proto-hipsters that give the city its modern identity. The film showcases a transformed town next to things that never change. The new film is an homage to twenty years of independent filmmaking, presenting the city’s changing face and showcasing some of its most exciting talent.  One of SLACKER 2011‘s directors, Bob Ray, will be in attendance to talk about the film’s production and answer audience questions.  This event is free of charge and open to the public. It takes place in the Harrington Education Center, auditorium 209, at 7:30 PM on Thursday March 29th.  For more information visit film.tamu.edu.

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.”
