Catching up!

It’s been a while! Since I last posted we’ve had a lot happen…

  • “First Impressions” had 14 screenings, and won three awards!
  • “You’re the Puppet” was accepted into the inaugural Smodcastle Film Festival hosted by Kevin Smith at his Smodcastle Theaters in New Jersey!
  • We finished our next short “Looking Back” and are premiering it in November at both the Reel East Texas Film Festival and Lone Star Film Festival!
  • I received the “Texas Tornado” award for excellence in filmmaking from the San Angelo Revolution Film Festival!
  • And we’re starting to make movements toward the next short, hopefully early next year!

March Updates

Austin Revolution Film Festival: Erik Anderson won Actor of the Year for You’re the Puppet and Leonard apparently got a make out session with one of the presenters!

First Impressions also brought home Best Texas Short Comedy!

Last Week First Impressions screened at the Ocean City Film Festival and in April we’ll be screening at Bare Bones Film Festival and Fort Myers Beach Film Festival!

February is stacked with Festivals!

First up, Love Your Shorts Film Festival in Sanford Florida is screening First Impressions on Saturday February 12th!

Next up is Austin Revolution Film Festival, the festival we hold nearest and dearest to our hearts! They combined the 2020 festival with the new one because of covid and you’ll be able to see both First Impressions and You’re the Puppet! They’re both screening twice on Wednesday 2/16!

El Paso Media Fest delayed their 2020 Festival and you can see You’re the Puppet screening there on 2/25!

Also on the 25th, you can see First Impressions screening in Huntsville TX at the Prison City Film Festival!

And finally, back in January, First Impressions played in Chandler AZ for the Chandler Film Fest! It was the third time in a row they’ve had a film of ours and we really appreciate it. I hear great things about them!

We’re currently working hard on the next short and should be shooting it in within the next couple months so get ready!

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….

Upcoming Screenings

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!
