Howdy, Barkers! You’ve probably noticed that I haven’t gotten to post as frequently as I’d like over the past couple of weeks. It hasn’t been for lack of desire, but rather because I’ve been hemmed in by that pesky requirement that there be a mere 24 hours in a given day. Working with the Salt Lake Screaming Eagles has filled up most of my day-to-day, but over the past couple of weeks I’ve been putting the finishing touches on another project that’s been near and dear to my heart.
A couple of years ago, some friends and I said, “Why don’t we decide to do something completely insane and make a feature-length 80’s action parody?”
And now, more than two and a half years later, its done:
No Chance is our wild-ass parody homage to everything we loved about 80’s action movies, chock full of one-liners, full-auto M60’s, escalating body counts, dubiously safe explosions and even more dubious mustaches as you can see in the trailer:
We shot the whole thing in Austin with a fantastic local cast and crew, and we were lucky enough to have the great Vernon Wells (Bennett in Commando, Wez in The Road Warrior and the Lord General in Weird Science among well over a hundred other credits) fly in from L.A. to take part in the craziness. He said that of all the film sets he’d ever been on, ours was...certainly one of them.
Our awesome poster artist just picked up the final prints:
and is delivering them to our sales agent for the American Film Market this week. If we can get some interest, we’ll hope to have No Chance on big screens, small screens and any screens in between in the near future.
