Kabaret, two new films

Okay, this last weekend was Kabaret, which means that there were two Wis-Kino screenings. Two screenings = two films. Here they are. First off is I'm A Cop, this was the film we made for Kabaret, which means that we made it in 48 hours and shown on Saturday. The theme was announced on Thursday as "Disguise". It's a cop drama.

For the Thursday screening we made a film about an unfortunate T-Shirt design that resluts in a calamatus finale. It is part of the "Sam and Josh" series of shorts, it's titled T-Shirts.

The Videos from Adelaide

So here are the films that were made by Sam during is two week trip to the Kino-Adelaide Kabaret in Australia. They do their Kabaret a little different from Wis-Kino, in that not only do they announce a theme and require a film to be made around the theme in 48 hours, but they proceed to do this five times in a row. So on to the films:

The SA Episode 1
The first in a two part series that lampoons shows like The OC. Quite a large cast on this one. It was originally going to be a stand alone episode, but it got so many comments at the screening that a second episode was screened.

The SA Episode 2
Lots of events unfold here, unlikely connections between the characters were made. Love is lost, then found. A main character tragically dies, but his death brings the rest of the characters together.

Kino Adelaide ID (video coming back soon)
Just an ID peice. Like a commercial advertising that what you are watching is a Kino Adelaide production. This one incorporated the Rubik's cube, which is a common theme of RASHfilms.

Stain (video coming back soon)
This one is dirty. It quite literaly goes exactly where you are afraid it will go. See, the Kino Lab is a part of any Kino group's Kabaret, it acts as a central location that everyone involved can get together and excange talent and equipment. Kino Adelaides lab was located in a shut-down porno theater. This film makes use of their Kino lab as a set.

"Because It Has To" Screening

The documentary we made last year about Blitz VI will be screening at the Mercury Cafe on April 25th (that's like 4 weeks from now - Tuesday night) at 7:30 PM

We'll likely screen a couple of new RASH films there as a warm up before the documentary.
"Because It Has To" runs 1 hour and 17 minutes.

If you've not seen it yet, please come down and see it. For Kinoites, Blitz is the Kabaret of theatre.

Thursday night at 8PM 8 writers assembled, drew play titles, number of actors/actresses, and a sound challange. They had 12 hours to complete their (about) 15 minute play.

In come 8 directors who have 2 hours to read their scripts, look at potential actors and finally have and actor draft.

At 10AM the actors arrive and go with their directors for memorization/blocking/rehearsals (the directors also have to meet with the designers)

At 8PM - 24 hours later, the show goes on, ready or not.
Last year, this was done 2 nights in a row. The documentary takes you behind the scenes with the writers, designers and cast.

So meet us there already!
