Off Topic? -- Here is a movie for ya to see
Hey guys. TOTALLY off topic of anything this board has to do with...lol, but I am trying to get the word out.
Here is the background. Back in 2007, some friends of mine came back to Dothan, AL and filmed a full length feature film. The name of the movie is Skip Tracers. It took them about a year to get the editing done, and they began to show the movie in various film festivals all over the US starting in 2008. Both my wife and I had a part in the move as extras, and we both helped out A LOT behind the scenes. I was in the funeral scene and had a closeup (I am wearing a maroon button up shirt, short blonde hair, really goofy looking...lol). If there is a showing near you, PLEASE go see it. It is an absolute RIOT, and if you are from Dothan and have moved away, or if you know people here, you will get a lot of the jokes.
Also, keep an eye out for the car crash and the fight scene I coordinated. And, stay for the credits, I get a page all to myself?LMAO (apparently this is a big deal).
Also, PLEASE note, this is rated ?R?. As much as I would love to tell you to take your kids and go see it, please don?t. We did film in a strip club one day. Also, there is strong language.
Below is the blog they posted.
Skiptracers going to 60 Cities. Go see our movie and spread the word. April 20th
Category: Movies, TV, Celebrities
Skiptracers, The little movie that could. 3-time Audience Award Winning southern comedy, coming to a Carmike Cinema near you April 20th-26th. Cities are listed below. TELL EVERYONE, WE NEED YOUR HELP.
This is the story of the little movie that could. With so much competition from giant studios it?s nearly impossible to get a theatrical release for a low budget independent movie, unless you?ve got an original idea, make a funny movie that audiences everywhere can enjoy and are in the right place at the right time. Enter Skiptracers.
In the armpit of Alabama just beyond the crossroads of ambition and stupidity, Skiptracers is the story of a family whose fortunes are tied up in a web of fugitives, football and fellatio. Witness the misadventures of
JD and Tucker Trawick (Bail-bonding, pee-wee football coaching brothers) as they attempt to keep their dad?s bonding company in business and their senile Nanny off the road.
Audiences across the country have enjoyed this movie and the performances of the up and coming actors and bands that wrote music for the soundtrack. First time Director Harris Mendheim returned to his hometown of Dothan, Alabama to embellish the story of his family and make a cult classic.
Langhorne Slim ad the War Eagles- Paste Magazine?s Best of 2008-collaborated with the filmmakers and the Brooklyn based band the Defibulators to make a memorable score. Justin Johnson added some solid
80's tunes that will make you laugh .
