This past weekend First Impressions had it’s second screening at the Charlotte Film Festival! They’ve had us out the past three years and have been nothing short of awesome! Hopefully we’ll get a chance to make it out there one day.
Also this past weekend the San Angelo Revolution Film Festival had their second fest and the first in person one! Random Knowledge was a selection last year and You’re the Puppet this year so they both got to screen! The town put on such an amazing show and the theater was a legit movie palace and it was so cool to see my ridiculous films there. And for some reason they decided to honor me with the Filmmaker of the year award!
All in all it was a fantastic weekend, three films played in the same day and winning the Filmmaker of the Year award. And we started making some plans to shoot the next one soon….
First Impressions is premiering at the 40th anniversary Breck Film Fest in September! We screen 9/18 and we couldn’t be happier to go back there. We premiered Here Comes the Neighborhood there in 2017 and it was where Amy and I spent our honeymoon after getting married in Denver the day before. Hopefully we’ll have some more screenings to announce for this film soon! More info can be found here!
In October the San Angelo Revolution Film Festival is having their first in-person fest! Last year was postponed because of Covid and they’re combining the two fests. Random Knowledge was picked last year and You’re the Puppet this year, so it’s going to be a double header for Rogue Alchemy Pictures! The festival is produced by the fantastic people behind Austin Revolution Film Festival so you know it’s going to be an absolute blast! More info can be found here!
Speaking of the people behind the San Angelo Revolution fest… Austin Revolution is having an event in September to tide us over to the big fest in February. On the 24th there will be a filmmaker happy hour and then on the 25th a screening of some films from people in both the 2020 ARFF Hall of Fame class as well as announcements of the 2022 class… I wonder why You’re the Puppet is screening there? Come out and find out!
Time to announce our newest short, First Impressions! We’re about 90% done with it and nearly ready to get it out there and start submitting to fests!
It’s probably the simplest short I’ve made, 4 people in one room, but it’s pretty weird and funny. It’s about two couples having a game night and playing a new game called… First Impressions! I can’t wait for everyone to see it!
Hey guys, I got to do a fun interview with Project Nerd about my latest film, You’re the Puppet! It was done in conjunction with the Boulder Film and Brew Festival and we talked about that movie and some of my other ridiculous projects. They did such a great job of editing it together, check it out here!
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’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.
