A new version of “Cat’s Head Theatre,” a.k.a. Cat Head Theatre 2, a.k.a. the Japanese Movie One, is now up on YouTube. Yes, the HD version will not be long behind, but for now why not enjoy a brand spanking new 360 version? Re-imagined and re-engineered for this whole 360 degree video craze that’s sweeping […]
At long last, the Render Farm at the Naked Rabbit Mystery Studios has burned itself out bringing you the unavoidable spectacle of Cat Head Theatre – in 360 degree video! You’ve no doubt heard of this newfangled amusement they call the “Three Hundred Sixty Degree Video.” It’s all the rage amongst the intelligentsia as well […]
“Anna” is finished! After a rather lengthy and totally unnecessary beginning, the final 2K scans were re-edited, color corrected, and married to a new 5.1 soundtrack. Now there is a viable DCP ready for projection and ultimate viewing. It’s as good as it’s going to get. Most importantly, this means it is actually finished for […]
The last of the imagined Lobby Cards for “Anna” while I finish up a 2K DCP of the film. The 5.1 mix has been ready for a year now, it’s time to get this thing together and show it shown somewhere.
I’m gearing up for working on the new transfer of “Anna” and getting the film to look good in 2K. So here are more fake Lobby Cards for the film – as if it were showing in the 1970s.
I was having so much fun with the Big Dong Lobby Cards, why not do a set of lobby cards for “Anna?”
Attendees of my screening in 2009 were treated to an apparently once-in-a-lifetime event: the only screening of my 20 minute short, “Anna.” This is due to the film having originated on 16mm, having been transferred to DV, and screened in standard definition. Who would possibly screen standard def in 2009 much less today? It’s a […]
Big Dong is also based on an old Chinese movie poster I found. Min-Hsu Wang, who stars as “Little Chong,” was able to find it for me – a 1977 comedy called “Winner Takes All!” Part 1 of these lobby cards is here, and Part 2 is here.
Here are some more imagined lobby cards that Big Dong might have had if it had been an actual movie. The Garfield Theatre in Alhambra used to show great Hong Kong action films in the 90s. This was yet another theatre I imagined would show the feature version of “Big Dong.” So “BD” is kind […]
I made Big Dong in part because of the wacky theatre lobby cards and posters I’d see while driving by the old Westlake Theatre on Alvarado in Los Angeles. Its been a swap meet for years now, but I remember fondly the kinds of films they’d play there. Here are some imagined lobby cards that Big […]
