John Wick Director’s iPhone Action Short Film: Snowbrawl

David Leitch, the director behind John Wick and Deadpool 2 decided to direct an EPIC short film using just an iPhone. The short film is called Snowbrawl and it is REMARKABLE. I wanted to highlight this because it just goes to show you you do not need the latest 8K RED or Arri Alexa to tell a story.

Enjoy the short film.

Guillermo Del Toro’s Micro-Budget Short Film: Geometria

I had the pleasure of meeting Guillermo del Toro on multiple occasions through my journies in Los Angeles. He is by far one of the most down to earth film directors I’ve ever met. He is a certified cinematic genius. From the magical Pan’s Labyrinth to the Oscar-winning Shape of Water Guillermo has proven again and again he is a master storyteller.

That’s why it is fascinating to see how it all started. Guillermo del Toro’s first film Geometria is a 1987 short fantasy horror comedy film written and directed by the master. It is based loosely on Fredric Brown’s short story, Naturally, which was originally published in Beyond Fantasy Fiction and later reprinted in the short story collection Honeymoon in Hell. His micro-budget was under $2000. Enjoy!

Tim Burton’s Short Film: Hansel and Gretel

For you obscure media fans, here is one of legendary filmmaker Tim Burton’s early efforts in collaboration with The Disney Channel that aired only once on Halloween night in 1983. This is Burton’s unique, twisted, Burtonesque version of the classic Grimm Fairy Tale featuring an all Asian cast. Hansel and Gretel are the two children of a poor toymaker, whose evil stepmother wishes to do away with them to avoid starving.

After being intentionally led away in the woods, they come across a gingerbread house attended to by a bizarre, but seemingly nice old hag with a candy cane nose! (played by the same male actor as the Stepmother) who turns out to have evil designs for our heroes! After the initial airing, Disney Channel execs were so distraught by the frightening subject matter, that they never allowed the film to be shown again.

Thankfully, someone managed to tape it that night, which provides us with this footage.

George Lucas’ Rare Micro-Budget Short Film: Filmmaker – A Diary

Even the legendary filmmaker George Lucas had to start somewhere. Filmmaker: A Diary by George Lucas. This 30 min documentary is an intimate portrait of another legend in the film industry Francis Ford Coppola. Lucas filmed and recorded sound for the documentary himself, using an otherwise unutilized 16mm production camera and a Nagra tape recorder from the production.

“Filmmaker remains one of the best documentaries about the production of a movie, as fresh and insightful today as it was in 1968… The thirty-minute film has the fluidity and detail of a written journal coupled with a cinematic sense of movement as the Rain People company goes from location to location” – Dale Pollock, author of Skywalking: The Life and Films of George Lucas

Synopsis:
This remarkable documentary offers a behind the scenes view of how filmmaker George Lucas viewed the filmmaking process when he was an intern working with Francis Ford Coppola on the feature film The Rain People.
