I made this little promo bumper spot thing. Space trash! That’s one of the prop medium format cameras from the studio where we shot the moon landing. That was tough, had to pump all the air out of the room. B.O.F. Bumper from birds-on-fire films on Vimeo.

One of them (the “Mario Mumblecore Trailer” we posted about previously and previously-er) is on fire on, in and around the internet today. It was a pleasure working with Joe on these [...]

Last night, immediately after watching a SXSW screening of Joseph Kahn’s “Detention” at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar, I walked about 400 feet over to Highball and – mind you, my comedy-geek ass has no qualms about saying this – saw the funniest fucking show I have seen in a long time. Twasn’t a movie [...]

Word from my old college buddy Ira Shiflet is that the Stephen F. Austin Summer Feature program is going to be producing a film based on a Joe R. Lansdale short story. Since I’m a Lansdale comic fan from my younger days it’s pretty exciting for me to hear of him teaming up with my [...]
