We’re making a movie.
It isn’t Big Dick’s and it isn’t MEG, obviously. Big Dick’s is sleeping for a wake-up date some other time and MEG isn’t really something I could make locally. Expect an update on that flick in the near future though.
11 Colonels ATTACK!
is a really silly and messed-up comedy which I’m writing with Steve
Murphy to be shot by Andrew Sweeney and myself, edited by Andrew,
scored by Dave Krosner, and hopefully featuring a cast and crew
populated by a ton of you folks out there.
premise, if you want to call it that, concerns a couple of guys (Steve
and myself) who are very set in their ways and extremely fanatical
about baseball who are accidentally chosen by the narrator (Micah
Robinson, playing the legendary Dr. Cleveland Flame) of the story to be
his subjects after the initial subjects catch the narrator
eavesdropping. What follows is a series of really odd and twisted
little moments leading up to the duo "getting the team back together"
for a big softball tournament even though The 11 Colonels (their team)
have been scattered to the four winds. Sounds kind boring? I hope so,
but with living puppets, molestation, dueling psychiatrists, warlocks,

something it’d be a mixture of Airplane! and Irreversible by way of the Bad News Bears and Little Otik,
Well, not exactly. Sweeney summed it up well when he said that it’s the

going to be doing it on the cheap. The VERY cheap. But we’re going to
do it and do it pretty soon and do it right here in the surrounding
areas of Atlanta, Georgia.
So, if you think you have something
to bring to the table in terms of prop design, fx, acting, tech stuff,
special effects, people to shoot raw footate at softball tournaments,
web site stuff (the official site will be priestportal.com
and it’d be fun to have some kind of diaries going on), or something I
failed to mention and have access to Atlanta during the spring, please
use the link below to alert me. I’ll keep you posted here and on that
priest site, but consider yourself warned. There’s another low rent
comedy coming your way, ‘cept this time it’s from us.
Financier types… um, I don’t know. This is some wacky shit.
There’s your lame press release.
