“Blood on the Plain” Production Stills

March 18, 2011 Leave a comment

As I said, I do intend to have more of a production aspect to this blog. I love reviewing movies and hope to have a career in the commentary process, but working on the films themselves is also quite a passion of mine. Recently, I’ve been doing grip work on a student short destined to take off and potentially be turned into a feature. It’s a contemporary horror/western that takes place in a small Kansas town. A tribe of nomadic creatures, thought to have died out, emerge from their caves to wreak revenge on a small town by slaughtering the high school homecoming.

The film is a joint effort between Water Cooler Productions, Black Apple Media and Dynamite Productions. The director is Mac Eldridge who is also producing, along with Aric Jackson and Kevin McGrail. The director of photography is David Wagenaar, the editor is Tom Dean and the production designer is Caitlin Laingen. The film is being shot on the RED One Camera.

The End of Oscar Season and What’s on the Horizon

So, the Oscar season is officially over. As saddening as the result was, I am fully ready to move on and focus on other things. While I do consider this site to be a year-long awards information center, let’s face it, there’s really not going to be a lot to say about it for quite some time now. Therefore I will be offering a few Awards Updates now and again until the season really kicks in.

However, for the majority of the time, The Edge of the Frame will be focused on movies themselves. I plan on focusing more on reviews, trailers, and news updates. I also plan on continuing with certain features, such as the New Additions to the Mitchell List, my assorted lists, as well as a new feature I’ve been planning that ties in with AFI’s own Top 100 List.

On top of all that, I plan on posting more information and updates on my own productions. While it’s my goal to become a professional critic and pundit, I still do spend a lot of time working on films, themselves. When I started this blog, I had originally planned on including a lot of features having to do with my own work, but never really got around to it. I intend to reverse that by posting everything from production stills (including the one above from a short film, “The Mystique” which I recently key gripped for), screenshots and even short films that I’ve edited either for class or my spare time. It should be a blast.

To kick this off, I’ve posted a trailer for a film that I am undoubtedly looking forward to in the coming year. Anyone who played the computer game “Oregon Trail” as a kid has to be excited for what is practically the film adaptation, “Meek’s Cutoff.” While looking a lot more dry and dark than the children’s game, this film really looks to be something of great, unorthodox adventure film. I highly doubt that the film will be up for any awards and you’ll probably have to search hard to find it in theaters. Yet this unusual-looking western starring Michelle Williams, Paul Dano, Will Patton and Bruce Greenwood looks like a 2011 film I will be sure not to miss.

According to IMDB the film will have a limited release on April 8th, but I wouldn’t hold any breath to see this get out of LA and NY by that point.
