On the 26th episode of Piecing It Together, co-host Josh Bell and I discuss The Beast, a local feature from Las Vegas-based filmmakers Ryan & Cody LeBoeuf. The Beast originally screened at film festivals under the name Rabbit Days before picking up distribution and getting the name change. It’s a crazy, mind-trip of a movie about a play director who lures some guests to his home with the promise of great opportunity, but what they find when they arrive goes from weird to bad to much worse. Puzzle pieces include The House on Haunted Hill, The Invitation, Mullholand Drive and Waiting For Guffman.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, I interview filmmaker Joe Lujan and actress/radio personality Corey Taylor, the organizers of this year’s Las Vegas 48 Hour Film Project. The 48 Hour Film Project is an event that happens in cities all over the world where teams of filmmakers are tasked with a specific set of instructions and have to make an entire short film in 48 hours. I’ve actually participated in it many times myself as a music composer, and it’s always a fun time and leads to some crazy, fun, interesting films.
On this special episode of Piecing It Together, I interview and get reactions from writer/director Rolfe Kanefsky about our episode that we did on Bus Party To Hell (Episode 8 of this show). This is the first in what we hope to make a regular series of getting reactions from filmmakers. This was the perfect opportunity to do this first one though because the movie, Bus Party To Hell, which has been available on VOD, iTunes and most streaming movie stores for a while now, is finally out TODAY on Blu-ray/DVD! It can be purchased from many popular stores that sell movies, and on June 26th, it hits 20,000 Redbox locations across the country. So be on the look-out for Bus Party To Hell, a crazy, blood & boob filled movie in which a satanic cult stops a party bus on its way to Burning Man and all hell breaks loose. Starring Tara Reid, Sadie Katz and Stefani Blake.
