I hope you’re wearing your laughing pants, because Cineplex has the premiere of the ROLLER TOWN trailer, available for your viewing right here!
Picnicface’s debut feature-film has been making the festival rounds (it’ll be playing Montreal’s Fantasia Fest on July 29th) for close to a year now, and will be hitting cinemas nationwide on September 21st!
But seriously, please don’t watch this film without your laughing pants on. You’re going to really make a mess.
Picnicface’s feature film ROLLER TOWN, wherein I do that acting thing I do, is having a screening in Halifax on Wednesday, June 6th at Park Lane.
But Glen, you ask “I’ve already seen ROLLER TOWN at the Atlantic Film Festival, or some other film festival, why would I want to see it again? Oh also, you were really, really good in it, too! Like, so good!”
Firstly, thank you. Secondly, this is the first public screening of the Director’s Cut, which I know in some cases doesn’t mean much at all, but in this one it does. I’ve seen both cuts, and this one gets the thumbs up from me.
Picnicface’s highly anticipated feature film, ROLLER TOWN will kick down the doors to start off the 31st Annual Atlantic Film Festival in Halifax next month! The film stars Mark Little, Kayle Lorette, George Basil, them Picnicface folks, as well as an appearance by myself (see headband above).
Check out the manly beard that I was rocking last September during my taped interview for Eastlink Television’s ATLANTIC FILMMAKERS hosted by John Scott. The interview is currently running on Eastlink Television, or if you have Eastlink OnDemand, you can simply go into the menu and select my episode.
I remember being fairly nervous for no real reason. It was not a good warmup for Regis. Overall though, I had a fun time with Mr. Scott. I still haven’t seen the interview (me being in Ontario and whatnot), but I’ve been told that Eastlink will get me a copy of it in a few weeks, so once they do that, I’ll put it up on the blog.
Fun fact: this is the beard that makes an appearance in the upcoming ROLLER TOWN (by Picnicface).
In other news, it’s been a damned-month since I updated the blog, and that is my definition of unacceptable. It’s been a fun month, I finished my first short screenplay in ages, which is currently being re-written, and also I had a brief stay back home in Nova Scotia to finish working on ONLY HUMAN, a feature film I started shooting three years ago.
As a firm believer in the talents of the sketch comedy group Picnicface, I donated some of my hard earned moneyz to their fundraiser. They are currently in the process of raising as much money as possible in preparation for their feature length film ROLLER TOWN.
Their website has a wonderful breakdown of what your donation amount will buy you (http://rollertownthemovie.com/perks)- I ponied up twenty five dollars for a Photoshop’d picture of Brian Macquarrie wearing me as a hat.
Worth every damn Canadian penny.
Remember, a donation towards ROLLER TOWN’s fundraiser is a donation to an awesome movie from the future. Have a little faith, these people can bring the lawlz.
Picnicface’s ROLLER TOWN is now gearing up to develop their two minute faux-trailer into a full-blown, full-length feature film shooting in Halifax next month. Much the same as Jason Eisener‘s HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN, their short trailer turned feature film included one thing…
Me, baby. Me.
You put me in your project, and I will skyrocket that puppy into Hollywoodland quicker than you can say “Who doesn’t mind showing their ass on camera?”
So either I have the magic/voodoo touch, or I’m just a lucky bastard who has managed to work with some really talented folks.
Regardless, Picnicface is looking for funding for ROLLER TOWN, and they are looking to you to donate some of your hard-earned dollars; but lucky for you, they have some pretty amazing rewards for those of you looking to share some love…
Andrew Bush & Picnicface‘s (http://www.picnicface.com) Roller Town has just been released to the internatz. I dawned a pair of roller skates for a couple days and provided some sexual nudity for the film.
