What has RASHfilms been up to?

So yeah, we have been pretty dormant lately. That's not to say we aren't busy doing things though. However, as far as short films go, we have went from torrent to trickle, and that is because, well, real life is a bitch to us both in different ways. Plus running Wis-Kino (thank God Emily keeps up the Wis-Kino Myspace page for me) can kinda drag as well (though in the coming month, we will be making some announcements about changes on the Wis-Kino front...)

That's not to say that we are completely down and out. For example, check out our most recent creation RASHnotes - 1984 which is part of a planned series of adaptations of briefly read Cliff's Notes (Sam and I recently stopped by the local Barnes and Noble's in house Starbucks to quickly read the synopsis to "Fahrenheit 241" and "All's Quiet on the Western Front"). Not to mention the slew of films we made a few weeks ago in Louisville with our friend Emily Mills and Rob Matsushita. Plus you can count on us always making something for each Wis-Kino Kabaret.

On the live front, I personally have been very busy catching us up on old projects. The Aporia footage is edited and awaiting further plans. The Selfish Gene project has been officially closed. I have edited about 70% of the Reverence '07 footage. Blitz/Blitz Smackdown 2007 are being edited right now. "Revenge of the Mini-Musicals" (which I got to be an actor in for the closing weekend) is finished and available on DVD as is "Mercury Rising." Footage of "Celeste and Starla Save Todd and Win Back the Day" was shot and already burned to DVD and distributed in a matter of days. The footage of Mercury Players "Reefer Madness" will see the cutting room sometime in August I think, as will a few other archival projects we still have of Mercury shows that fell to the wayside. Early production on the Blitz 2008 DVDs (planned release in July of 2009) will begin soon as well.

Footage from ourtrip to France has finally arrived, and it will soon be edited into something shared on the website. Lastly, a RASHfilms Year 2 and Year 3 DVD are in the works. After that, our slate will be clean, and years of footage caught up with; hopefully all by then end of summer.

In the near future, we will be attending and filming for posterity, Hot Mess at The Majestic, a celebration of Burlesque Shows, Drag Kings, and these two broads we know, sponsored by DANE 101 and INDIE QUEER.

Also, unrelated, I got a blog: http://blog.thegentlemanloser.com, so that's fun.
