Taika Waititi’s Micro-Budget Short Film: A Perfect Love

Kerry goes around Wellington nodding his head at things he finds perfect, like a fruit arrangement or makes perfect eg by tidying up, shaking his head at things that are not like rocks. Seeking a like mind, he sets up a Facebook page, furiously typing what he is after, however he really wants someone exactly like himself, and from here the film gets its edge. In an outstanding basic choice of outfit that fits the character; a pink jersey and glasses.

Taika Waititi(Thor: Love and Thunder) gives a superb performance.

Robert Rodriguez’s Micro-Budget Short Film: Bedhead

Bedhead is a 1991 short family-comedy-fantasy film directed and co-written by Robert Rodriguez.

Made while he was a student at the University of Texas at Austin, Rodriguez shot the film with his brothers and sisters as actors and with his family and friends as crew. It was entered into several competitive film festivals, where it won cash prizes that Rodriguez then used to help produce his first feature filmEl Mariachi.

Rebecca, a young girl, is always picked on by her older brother, David, who “has the worst case of bedhead you’ve ever seen”.

David is a generally unruly sort. At breakfast, he eats a cockroach and makes a big mess with his cereal. After breakfast, Rebecca goes to play with one of her dolls and discovers it has been defaced by David.

Enraged, she attacks David, but then falls and hits her head. When she comes to, she discovers that she has telekinetic powers. At first she thinks of how her newfound powers could benefit humankind (including making herself the first Mexican-American as well as the first female president of the United States). But she first decides that she will take revenge on her brother and tame his bedhead.

Overwhelmed by her powers, but still unable to smooth David’s unruly hair, she drags the boy behind her bicycle, and in the process hits her head again. She wakes up in a hospital and decides that she will never abuse her powers again, but as far as David knows, she will continue to be a threat.

Coen Brother’s Blood Simple Investor Pitch Trailer

blood simple pitch trailer, coen brothers

We all have to start somewhere and the Coen Brothers are no different. When they were struggling filmmakers trying to get their first feature Blood Simple off the ground they had an idea, why don’t we shoot a pitch trailer to show investors what we can do.

The Blood Simple pitch trailer starred unknown actor Bruce Campbell. Joel Coen discusses the trailer’s origins on the Criterion Collection’s 4K Restoration of Blood Simple.

“Sam Raimi taught us that if you call on the phone and ask people to invest in a movie they’ll tell you to go hell. But if you tell them ‘I have a piece of film to show you,’ then some of the would let you come into their living room and set up your little projector and show it to them.”

I had the pleasure of speaking to director and cinematographer Barry Sonnenfeld who lite and shot the trailer.
