Winter is upon us which always leads to the philosophical questioning of what have we done with our year.
Too Dead To Die is still in post-production but will be hitting the festivals soon enough.
Jason is shifting into high gear, putting those finishing touches on his work.
Dan is in a whole new environment, living in Chicago, still working in advertising and very eager to get involved in the local scene.
We are looking forward to next year and the new opportunities that will be upon us. We are also re-visiting some old unfinished works and will be putting a glossy finish on them when they are complete.
Upcoming projects to be released:
Too Dead To Die – February 2007
**SECRET POLITICAL ANIMATION** – March 2007 (w/ audio by D0C of Focus Media)
Upcoming projects in production:
Bad Day (animation)
Ones and Zeroes (live action)
plus other exciting stuff there aren’t much details on, but stay tuned I promise you won’t be disappointed with 2007.
The website is still in a state of flux, many images and other multimedia may be missing, please bear with us as we re-create everything lost in the recent server crash and make your web-using experience something you would love to write home to mom about.
Our November Obscuro salute goes out to Lloyd Kaufman, founder of the legendary Troma Studios. Lloyd has been keeping the spirit of independent film alive for decades. Some people think that independent film means stuff from studios like Miramax or Lion’s Gate. News Flash: THAT AIN’T INDIE!! True indies don’t a have a studio bankroll, fancy catering, or sometimes even a proper crew. They get made due to blood, sweat, tears, (and occasionally other bodily fluids best not discussed), and most of all the dedication, ingenuity, and hard work of everyone involved.
Lloyd has stayed true to his indie roots through thick and thin. With THE TOXIC AVENGER, he pretty much single-handedly created the Gore/Comedy film, paving the way for Sam Raimi’s EVIL DEAD sequels and the early films of Peter Jackson. Visualnoiz’s own TOO DEAD TO DIE definitely falls into this category, so we owe Lloyd as much as anyone.
The newest film from Troma is the chicken zombie/gore/comedy/musical POULTRYGEIST, just in time for Thanksgiving! Friend the myspace site, check out trailer clips on youtube, and Troma’s own website. This film needs your support. Without grassroots promotional efforts, Troma Studios will fold up shop and we’ll be stuck with nothing but bland-ass bid studio “films” to watch. And who the hell wants that???!! If you have an indie arthouse theater near you, encourage them to show POULTRYGEIST.
Lloyd Kaufman, we at Visualnoiz salute (and support) you!!!
