Ponce wrote, directed, starred in and Executive Produced this lil’ short film.
PLEASE, watch it and PASS IT ON. The more eyes that see it the better. Hopefully it will enlighten some of the people out there who think Down Syndrome means no hope. As you all know from Ponce, there is more than hope, there is success, joy, and a constant state of growing. PLEASE SEND THE LINK TO THIS BLOG POST TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS.
Director’s Statement: I’m Ponceman and I have down syndrome. Sometimes people say I can’t do things. Like acting, but I love to act and I pursued it and made it happen with my help from my brother and family. I have been in movies with Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Emily Blunt, Val Kilmer, Rip Torn, Glen Howerton and more. I love acting. I want to write and direct too. I have written a lot of stuff with my brother, Scott Allen Perry, and then I decided to direct too. So I wrote The Bridge on my own and got all my friends to make it with me. I’m very proud of it. It’s from the heart, my kind of humor and it was a blast to make. I dedicate the film to everyone who ever had people tell them they were stupid or they couldn’t do anything good and got treated negatively by people. This film is for everyone, the artists, because art has no limits, like me.

For all the fans of comic books and 80′s movies, I give you the result of Spider-Man stepping onto some Tuff Turf.

This one is for everyone out there who digs our stuff, the fans of Perry Brothers goodies, Ponce’s work, my work, and everyone who just digs checking in to see what we are up to.
“Think it Over One More Time….. baby, won’t you please come home….”
Clifton Chenier sings to me as I write my thoughts on the coming new year, assuming the Apocalypse does NOT commence as scheduled, and his words beckon me back home letting me know that it’s waiting to embrace me in its loving, Louisiana arms.
I’ve finished a new screenplay. It’s a horror flick. One I intend to direct in early 2013. The universe seems to be signaling me that the time is here, make the move, push the envelope, get your groove on. So it’s a push back home, to make all the wonderful projects I’ve been building this past year come to fruition. The birthing legs are ready to walk.
Los Angeles has been pretty good to me. I’m not the biggest fan of the city, this is pretty well known. Mostly because of the actual business of Hollywood and the way people are taught to comport themselves in the City of Angels. Louisiana is my homeland. As limited as the big city things I love so much are in Louisiana, it wins on the people, the music, the food, and the way I feel when I’m here. Right now, I’m sitting at Cafe Envie The coffee is so so, the atmosphere good good, and the feeling of being in New Orleans…. well, as they say, Laissez les bons temps rouler!
A lot of my Los Angeles friends have taken to traveling to New Orleans for work in the film industry. The jobs are growing. And once you’ve spent time here, and really taken in the people and the music it’s clear why a person like me feels most comfortable here. I want to make Louisiana a better place to make movies. It’s already pretty awesome, I want to help make it the most awesome.
So, as 2013 rolls in my mind will be on all the wonders that are already in action and the ways they will flourish and grow as time moves forward. I will be creating a lot, from comedy, drama, horror and mixtures of all the above. I feel more roles for Ponceman in movies and TV and all the new forms of entertainment that are cropping up in this new age of internet based entertainments. I have a love I’ve never felt before in my life, and an excitement and drive that has somehow endured the hardest times and crappiest situations to, oddly enough, come out stronger. And I have a happiness that comes from sharing my works and thoughts with fans, true fans, that I feel connected with more than ever. The book signings we’ve done in 2012, the public appearances and just plain ol’ hanging out with the homies have made me thankful for the past, the good and the bad, and has helped me realize how great this ride truly is.
Thanks for sharing the ride.

Well, dear blog peeps. I think it’s clear we love you. We post here and you read and enjoy and share in the love. That’s a much more fulfilling experience than dealing with trolls on youtube.
That said, here’s our new youtube video. Posting here to give YOU, the diehard friend and fan some inside scoop on the video and such.
So, here’s the video followed by a little self-Q&A:
APOCALYPSE: PONCEMAN GONE WILD!
WHY IS THERE A TITLE OVER THE TITLE LIKE IN A FOREIGN MOVIE?
Because I want people to think it’s been censored or that it is foreign or, basically, to mess with people.
WHERE DID YOU FILM IT?
Los Angeles, the former estate of Eric Curtis and the back alley of my girlfriend’s crib.
HOW DID YOU DO THOSE SPECIAL EFFECTS?
Just like the MC Outdoorz stuff, photoshop and final cut. In one instance, a water bottle was utilized.
DOES PONCE REALLY LOOK AT PORN?
Does the Pope shit in the woods when his mom isn’t there to hear his log fall?
HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE IDEA?
End of the world approaching, my friend had a, apocalypse themed film festival at his place, I like puns. Ponce can take a simple idea and make it hilarious. Add those things together and viola! Or whatever favorite stringed instrument you want to say at the end of that sentence.
END LIL’ Q&A
Feel free to ask your own questions. Or if someone knows how to set up on of those REDDIT Q&A’s we’d do that too. Add us on Google plus and we might do a hangout too. All links on out youtube page.
