THE MARSCHER LORDS:Brotherhood or Death is Now on IMDB!!!

As previously mentioned, THE MARSCHER LORDS: Brotherhood or Death Promo Video/Commercial is now in the process of being scored – with ORIGINAL MUSIC!!! Composer Drew Tretick unfortunately became detained on one of his current projects so he referred the scoring duties to his close friend Hans Karl, who we couldn’t be happier to have aboard!!! Keeping it all in the family!!! The initial work on the shorter of the videos (yes – there is more than one! ;<) is more than promising & Hans is incredibly excited to be working on it!!! The music itself evokes masculinity, raw emotion, power,  loneliness, gentleness, honor, respect, kindness, & love. Of course tying it all together are the moving pictures it will itself overlay...

Heinrich II von Tunna Shield

To have a great film you’ve got to have a great story. Like Lennon-McCartney, the two go hand-in-hand: Mutiny on the Bounty, Gone With the Wind, Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo, Casablanca, The Hustler, Damn the Defiant, Lawrence of Arabia, Zulu, The Magnificent Seven (h/t to Akira Kurosawa), Lord Jim, The Great Escape, & The Wild Bunch , just to name a few (a very incomplete list to be sure!)  Anymore – too oft for comfort - stories seem to be tossed into the WC in favor of (or lack thereof compensated with) F/X. Don’t get us wrong: there’s nothing better than terrific F/X – what would Star Wars be without it (ok – basically a Western) but still with a great story!!! Sometimes great stories come in the form of the creator’s mind (as with Star Wars for example)...

A Night at Graumann’s Chinese & Dances With a…T-34?

Graumann's legendary Chinese Theatre

When it rains, it pours!!! Now our very own R.E Wilhelm III has not one but two films to shoot this July: Director Mark W. Curran’s psychological thriller “The Abandoned Dead” & Mike Moutsatsos’ family saga “Barker Daniels“. Ahh, such is an actor’s life! Feast or Famine it is. Just one of those things (& sometimes a veritable Trip to the Moon on Gossamer Wings!). This past Friday was the Dances With Film Festival 2014@ the legendary Graumann’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Mo Fitzgibbon & hubby Robert Walker premiered a new music video of Joanna Tepper, Save the Children. Take a bow – both of you!!! Definitely outclassed – by far – the other vids that were presented. Well done!!! Excellently produced, shot, & edited!!! Kudos!!! Remember Joanna is the offspring of a songwriting family, s...

Teutonic Knights, circa 13th Century

The horror/psych thriller genre is certainly one that makes $$$, which is obviously why they keep making them!!! And that will continue until the pubic at large tires of them which has yet to happen. In that vein, our very own R.E. Wilhelm III just booked a lead part in Mark W. Curran’s upcoming indie feature “The Abandoned Dead” (no website as yet – under construction). The script is a real thriller with a fascinating twist at the end. No campy ‘teens-lost-in-woods-hunted-by-crazed-zombie/vampire’ schlock here (life’s too short for that!), but a very well-thought out & well-written project. Principle shooting begins this summer. Well done Mr. Curran!!! We’re earnestly look forward to the result!

Lenser Extraordináire David Hansen-Sturm will be onboard doing as both DP & Editor.
