The Good News… teaser

SAP HERE ~

We’ve been busy. Or, I’ve been busy. Ponce has been taking a lil’ vacation. He met a girl, online, that he digs. They are gonna have some face to face time soon to see if there’s a love connection. Cross fingers. Ponce deserves some romance.

On the horizon, the things that I’ve been busy with…

  1. Mime Very Own Book – due to hit bookshelves Dec 2011. Stars Doug Jones with cameos by Ponce. Also a cameo or two from yours truly, Adam Mock (co-writer) and Eric Curtis (photographer extraordinaire) This book is hilariousness. Imagine the Far Side if every scenario had a Mime, and instead of a cartoon it was surreal photographs that captured both the real world and an artists brainstorm in each image.
  2. Fallen Superheroes – another book. From Eric Curtis’ brain cells, the notion is superheroes that suffer from the same troubles as every other human on the planet… but they are bulletproof… literally. Here’s some blurbage for you to salivate on…

    “Fallen Superheroes is a caricatured look at extraordinary everyday people through the visionary lens of professional photographer Eric Curtis. Using superheroes as the allegory, Curtis explores the not-so-glamorous and sometimes dark realities of those who strive to live their dreams against all odds. Curtis once again pairs his trademark imagery with the witty prose of Scott Allen Perry and Adam Mock (Mime Very Own Book), making Fallen Superheroes an eye-popping, gut-busting, esoteric commentary on the unique individuals who color our lives.”

  3. TOP SECRET FEATURE FILM – Can’t say much other than it’s a very funny horror movie. Doug Jones, Hanna Hall, and other cool peeps MIGHT be starring in it. I might be directing it, might have written it, and might have a lead role in it. Ponce might be in it too. It might be kicking into high gear and you might hear about it within the next 6 weeks.
    If all these mights line up right, this movie WILL kick ass.

That’s the teaser version of things. More to come as it unfolds.

If you are wondering about when we are going to have some new YouTube videos, the answer is I really don’t know. If it was easy to crank out videos, the quality we want to make, we’d do it all the time. Sadly, we do not have the resources to make that happen. We are not anywhere near the level as some of our YouTube friends who actually make a living making their videos. We just don’t have the subscribers. Without the views, without a sponsor, there’s just not really any money being generated from the videos we release, which means everything we do is completely out of pocket. So, I’ve been focusing on getting projects up and running that will pay the bills. Close to making that happen. In the meantime, YouTube will have to wait.

So, I’ve avoided putting this good ol’ short on YouTube for years… why? Because I didn’t want to break it up into 2 parts.

That said, I broke it up into 2 parts.

This is the first short film I ever did, back in 2002.  I started writing it so I could put my friend Doug Jones in something where he was an actual human and not covered in tons of latex and what not.  Ended up writing this tale.  Here’s a review from filmthreat.com:

Writer/director/star Scott Allen Perry’s extraordinary short probably won’t make you cry, but that doesn’t mean it’s not the most haunting love story you’re likely to see anytime soon. Told with precision, sensitivity and skill, this is a funny, nightmarish tragicomedy with echoes of George Orwell and Roman Polanski.We’ve all heard about human guinea pigs; the sort of folk who rent out their bodies to make a little spare cash…

A nice shout out for a lot of effort gone in the right direction.  This is also the first time I put Ponce in anything, and he has gone nuts trying to act more and more and will most likely never stop.  Great performances by everyone across the board and great camera work by my DP and favorite bald man, David Loeb.

Enjoy!

Side Effects Synopsis:

A shy guy becomes a human guinea pig in an experimental drug test and meets the girl of his dreams. But the drug that brings them together may be the very thing that keeps them apart.
