In a prior post, I had discussed our filming of Stir Fried Justice. It was originally intended for inclusion in Newt Wallen’s project Midnight Show, a collection of grindhouse-style movie trailers. Regretfully, it will not be included. That’s the bad news. The good news is that we can now reveal it in all its 70s-ish martial arts glory.
This was, by far, the largest effort Sanj and I had coordinated. Prior filmings involved no more than half a dozen people at most. This time around, including ourselves, we had twelve people participating. While that’s nothing for professional filmmakers, it’s certainly a handful for us. Luck was on our side that day. Everyone showed up on time and was happy to participate. The weather was, with the exception of a brief downpour, cooperative. We filmed a few green screen scenes in doors during the rain. By the end of the day, we were all giddy and exhausted.
We’d like to thank the cast for being so willing and cooperative:
Thugs: Micheal Autenrieth, Nick Cavicchio, Jordan DesJardins, Dan Silvestri, Brandon DiEleateriu
Propeller Beanie Thug: Sanj Surati
Murdered Husband: Brandon DiEleateriu
Women: Dana Hurley, Alicia Lenoir, Amber White
Black Thunder: Victor Milbourne
White Lightning: Paul Palcko
Most Evil Small-time Landlord in History: John Iwasz
More astute readers may notice that Brandon is credited twice: once as a thug and as the murdered husband. Not one to waste talent, we simple slapped a ski mask on Brandon after his heart is mercilessly torn out of his chest and we had one more thug.
Our next significant filming will be during the first two weekends of November. This time we’re going back to our zombie roots. If you are in the Philadelphia area and would like to participate as a zombie or a human or even behind the scenes, please fill out the Want to Be in a Zombie Movie? form. We plan on submitting the final result to all applicable horror related film festivals.
