It’s been a wild couple of weeks for Rogue Alchemy Pictures! You’re the Puppet won best short film at the Nacogdoches Film Festival and then the following week it won most original film at the Prison City Film Festival!
Random Knowledge is having it’s likely last screening at the San Angelo Revolution Film Festival in April! It’s the first year for the festival and it’s co-run by the guys behind the Austin Revolution Film Festival so we’re expecting big things!
And finally, Leverage is chugging along! As I type this our fundraiser is 70 dollars away from being at 5000! We have two days left! Go to http://www.igg.me/at/leverage to learn more and help us get this movie made!
Hey guys, I have some exciting news for you! We’re working on a new film called “Leverage”. It’s an action comedy and it’s going to be so much fun. The cast and crew are fantastic and you can check them out here.
And we need your help to get it made! Check out the video below to find out more about it and go to our crowdfunding page to help us raise the money and share the video on social media!
We’ve got a bunch of screenings coming up for You’re the Puppet this spring and we’re criss crossing the country…

We should have some more screening updates soon for you guys. I love how this film turned out and I can’t wait for you all to see it!
We’re working on a new short early next year and looking for a couple of actresses to help us finish out the cast. We’ve got some great talent already on board and it’s going to be so much fun. It’s an action comedy and it’s going to be ridiculous and badass at the same time. I keep describing it to people as this… I want someone to watch it and talk about how ridiculous it was but then say “but did you see when she did that crazy (insert stunt/kick/punch/etc. here)? that was insane!” We’re pushing ourselves to do something new and different with this one and we have an amazing fight choreographer on board who is really going to make it awesome.
Speaking of awesome, we have two screenings lined up for 2020 already. Random Knowledge is screening at the Chandler International Film Festival for it’s 20th festival and You’re the Puppet is screening at the Pensacola Indie Fringe and Comedy Festival, both in January. Two films in two states. Random Knowledge will be wrapping it’s run soon but you should see You’re the Puppet around the country soon and I’ll keep updating it here.
In the past couple weeks Random Knowledge has picked up some steam and has 6 screenings over the next month and “You’re the Puppet” got it’s first acceptance!

And be looking for our new film “You’re the Puppet” to start popping up soon!
Random Knowledge premiered at the 2nd Annual Reel East Texas Film Festival and it was a great screening. We picked up an award for best comedy short! I can’t wait to bring it to more festivals.
The week before that we screened Here Comes the Neighborhood and Casual Encounters at the Eyecatcher Film Festival in McAlester OK. Here Comes the Neighborhood picked up best micro-short and Erik Anderson won best actor for the film. Michael Charron picked up best director for Casual Encounters and his screenplay “The Breakdown” won the screenplay competition.
And finally, in October at the Downtown Tyler Film Festival, Here Comes the Neighborhood picked up the Best of the Fest award!
Random Knowledge is the newest short from Rogue Alchemy Pictures. We filmed it earlier this year and waited until the other films were finishing up their festival run before announcing it, but it’s finally time! It’s a comedy about competitive pub trivia, but I think you’ll like it whether or not you like pub trivia. I’m super proud of how this one turned out and can’t wait for everyone to see it!
We won a few awards over the weekend. Here Comes the Neighborhood was named best comedy short by the Revolution Me Film Festival in Brooklyn and Michael was named Director’s choice for screenwriter of the year at the Austin Revolution Film Festival!
Still a couple more screenings for Here Comes the Neighborhood coming up and be looking for announcements about Random Knowledge screenings coming soon!
