Junebug - A Rockabilly Tale

Here is a link to my concept video for a script that I completed last year.

Junebug is set in modern-day Southern Cali's tough and gritty Rockabilly Industrial Scene and explores the themes of this subculture, family relationships, and the other side. 

Its the story of Mickey Dunn, the neighborhood bad-ass and the…

Current Projects 2 of 20

I have started on another short script. Sci-fi of course, but this time I am attempting the use of a CG character with live action and virtual sets (lots of green screenin'). Yes. You read that. A CG character. Trying for "as real as possible" for the shoestring budget production. I let y'all know when the script is finished in case anyone wants to join in on the model making and animation.

The on going project "Dreamness" is a bit boggy. I still need to finish the first draft…

What I have leaned from experiences at film festivals.

Needles to say, film festivals are great experiences and opportunities for filmmakers. Here are some thoughts that I had while I was participating film festivals including Sacramento Film Festival 2012.

1. When your film is shown, you can learn about what was wrong with your film because you can definitely feel the atmosphere of the audience in the theater even though they do not comment anything about your film. It is the moment that you learn most about filmmaking and the…

How I has become a filmmaker so far.

When I was 5 years old, my family was not rich. And I was ashamed of that. So whenever I talked about my family to my friends, I created a story that I was born with lots of money. The story was so perfect for that age between my friends so all of them believed that my family was wealthy. However, soon the truth was revealed and I got in trouble. Now I remember that it was the first time when I can first see myself as a storyteller in my life.

While studying Mass Communication and…

What's Cool about the EPIC Camera

What's cool about the EPIC Camera: 

The EPIC Camera is a hugely evolutionary and perhaps revolutionary step in the digital cinema camera world. RED took the best things about their original camera - put the specs on steroids - and the body on a diet - and kept it at a very reasonable price. For a base price of around $30K without a lens you can be up and shooting (although pretty stripped down). The camera is beautifully small, expandable and elegant. Now to the big…

Film Antics: Process for Editing (non-technical) your Film by Committee

Hello from Film Antics (Best Comedy for 'Stare Straight Crew' at Sac 48hr International FF)...this is Juan Sotelo, managing partner and screenwriter. 

We are a small independent production company that realizes in order for us to grow, we must have efficient and effective scalable operational processes.  I know, I hate this part of the film-making process too.  But, in order to act like you're big, you have to take advantage…

Callin' It Like It Is Marty

Very courageous email / post of you Marty.  Not many want to hear that some think they are just "playing" at being a filmmaker.  Yup... Truth hurts.  I suppose that's the case with just about any endeavor, whether it be an artistic one or not.  Some people are really serious about it... Some just play at it hoping to get lucky without really doing any hard work.   That's why we see so many names come and go.  How many filmmakers from SIFF of, say, 10 years ago are still working at it today? …
