Runner" - Will be a short film parody of "Blade
Instead of 'Replicants' our film's antagonists are rogue clowns...
You have to have seen Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner", to
appreciate this parody. I assure you it is worthwhile. Possibly
the best (definately the most accurate vision of a possible earth
future) sci-fi ever!
Note this is to be parody. NOT satire!
We honour Riddley Scott's film with the highest regard (even if
he doesn't) and seek only to bring a humerous new slant on a fabulous
film and mock fun at people's fear of clowns.
"Quite and experience to live in fear, isn't it?!"
(Ideally) Actors who look/sound like Darryl Hannah,
Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, Harrison Ford, Edward James Olmos, Brion
Access to/ way to get several sheets of sugar glass and several other effects props - smoke etc...
Lots of rain!
Musician(s)/composers who can mimic Vangelis' style
to make similar music with various clown-like/circus polka themes.
Always inviting ideas, stories and
scripts for a short film I wish
to submit for Trop Fest.
The criterea are: <7mins, with 'a sneeze' incorporated as the Trop
Fest signature item.>
I'd prefer ideas/stories to be simple, engaging and if possible controversial.
Keeping scenes and number of actors to a minimum ;)
If no ideas I want to use come forth, the film I'll make will be an
idea of mine -
Most likely be named "The Lists"
or "Burdens" or "Undesirables"
The government tasks a man to kill 'undesirables' (people the government
deems to be a 'burden on society').
At first he's killing those unemployed for several years with a 6 month
warning to become employed...
The next dimension of the story is that the assassin then gets a new list(orders)
for targets without warning who are on disability allowances
The lead character (the assassin) may object and be warned with; "Well...
who's to say YOU aren't an 'undesireable'?", or he may go off and
kill himself, or be killed.... some twist is called for...
Need: Lead actor, the killer
role, Female - NEED
agent - CAST (Phil)
Victim 1, a male
person - NEED
Victim 2, a prostitue
Victim 3, a male
- FILLED (Lou Lou is it untill further notice!)
is a dark but funny short 'zombie' film.
It is presented that a security patrol officer has been killed and
his body has 'gone missing'. What follows is the mockery of typical
'security patrol duties' followed by classic zombie violence, ending
with a humourous twist ; )
"We wanted to show the drone-like on-the-job tedium of
patrol work and compare it to 'being a zombie'.
Is 'The Patrolman' a zombie? You'll have to watch and see!...
We're making fun of the security industry, night-shift work and
then paying homage to Romero's zombie stylings with some good old
fashioned zombie violence... er...we hope... You be the judge"

Points of Interest: My first
film - uses special effects makeup - some makeup took over 2 hours
to apply! - No zombies harmed during making of this film, although
Anthony and myself both sustained injuries which bled - This 9 minute
film took several weeks to make and finish editing
(Not offered at this stage, due to hosting limitations)
If you want a copy, I can mail it out as either an .avi file to play on
your PC or as a DVD player playable DVD.
Having trouble uploading to MySpace.com I've tried an 89MEG and a smaller
45.5MEG .wmv file.... it always craps out after about 60% uploaded....
ANY ADVICE ON HOW TO SUCCESFULLY UPLOAD VIDEO TO
MySpace WOULD BE APPRECIATED : )
