Total Rewrite 02 - Friday the 13th

November 11, 2017

In this episode, we discuss Friday the 13th. This episode was originally conducted for a planned second podcast of mine, 'Total Rewrite.' 

Friday the 13th is one of my favorite series in horror and thus far this year (2017) there was a scrapped pilot and another reboot of the franchise that was supposed to be out this year. 

So how would my co host Cloar and I totally rewrite this if offered the chance? Cloar goes in a much more satirical comedy/horror route ala Tucker and Dale vs Evil which is something completely different while I went with a horror/action in the vein of the original Predator.

As a side note for listeners of the Dave Bullis Podcast I had Victor Miller, writer of the original Friday the 13th on to discuss writing, filmmaking, and how Friday the 13th has grown over the years. Listen that here if you're interested. 

Which total rewritten version of, Friday the 13th, do you like better? Tell me below. Thanks for listening!

-- Netflix Buys Sundance Drama ‘Mudbound’ for $12.5 Million

-- Can Netflix Crash the Oscars With Dee Rees’ ‘Mudbound’?

-- Horizon Award 2018 - Live now on IndieGoGo.

What is the HORIZON AWARD? 

This award is part of the solution to a not just a growing problem in filmmaking today, but rather a systemic breakdown in who is being afforded the opportunity to get behind the camera. The 4th Annual Horizon Award will be given to  2 female directors who will receive an all expenses paid trip to the 2018 Sundance Film Festival where they will meet with producers, filmmakers, festival programmers and others in the film industry to help put them at the head of the line as for too long they have been forced to stand in the back.

Gender Disparity in Filmmaking. The simple fact is that there are not enough female directors in the film industry. A 2012 report published by Women In Film and the Sundance institute showed that of the the top 250 domestic grossing movies worldwide in 2012, women comprised only 9% of directors.

More recently, a  2015 Study was published and showed that of the top 100 domestic grossing movies in 2014, only 1.9% had a female director. The purpose of the horizon award is to confront this discrepancy by giving a female college student or recent graduate the opportunity to have their work seen by some of Hollywood’s most influential directors and producers and raise the profile of female filmmakers.

Episode 185 - LIVE from The First Glance Film Festival - Filmmakers Round Table

October 8, 2017

The FirstGlance Film Festival began in 1996 in the basement of a small theater in Center City Philadelphia. It started as a small theatre company in Philadelphia that wanted to help fellow filmmakers get their projects shown in a public venue for others to enjoy. Its mission was a one time weekend to show projects that might otherwise not be seen by moviegoers in the Philadelphia area. With a rented video projector and a bunch of large screen TVs, they had a successful weekend showing about 20 projects to about 150 people…The FirstGlance Film Festival was born.

FirstGlance decided to move forward with film festivals and make its event annual. With filmmaker interest, their sister festival opened in Burbank California in 2000 to a similar audience in a 35 seat screening room and has also become a growing annual event.

To date, FirstGlance has produced thirty two film festivals, shown over 2000 award winning films to over 150,000 attendees and over 300,000 online viewers of the Short Online Contest in its 14th incarnation in 2015.

Show Notes

- Private Violence - HBO Documentary - Private Violence is a feature-length documentary film and audience engagement campaign that explores a simple, but deeply disturbing fact of American life: the most dangerous place for a woman in America is her own home.

- A Chef's Life on PBS - A Chef’s Life is a Peabody and Emmy award-winning docu-series that plunges audiences into the kitchen of a high-end restaurant located in the low country of eastern North Carolina

- Road to Race Day - Road To Race Day journeys deep inside the sophistication and heart that makes stock car racing as American as apple pie. We're not just talking NASCAR. We're talking Hendrick Motorsports, the winningest team in professional stock car racing. Whether you're a diehard fan or just trying out your training wheels, this 8-part docu-series shares an unprecedented view of the grit and glory behind the drivers whose names are familiar to us all. Rookie driver Chase Elliott, heir apparent to the car formerly driven by racing legend Jeff Gordon, begins his reign while veteran Dale Earnhardt Jr. owns his crown as one of the best. Jimmie Johnson, now in his prime, is inching towards the top of NASCAR’s ‘most wins’ list, and Kasey Kahne struggles his way back to racing prominence. From North Carolina to Northern California, brace yourself for a wild ride as NASCAR’s most competitive drivers, their crew chiefs, and pit crews confront ever-changing rules and unrivaled skill at speeds close to 200 mph.
