Well, since variety is the spice of life, it was a blast on the Quad X set this past weekend. Scenes dealing with the attempt to shut down the porn company and scenes dealing with some of the of the more “horror” aspects were shot during three days of crazy shooting.
We welcomed Allison Wood back on set. Allison, a fixture in Austin indie film, has been in Twitchy films since the very beginning. She and Twitchy owner Nathan Bybee took a turn as married senators bent on saving the world from non Christians. Nothing like poking some fun at the politicians that are trying to push us in a more restrictive direction. That’s kind of t the core of why were doing the movie. You don’t have to like porn to get the film. But we hope that we all agree that all speech is worth protecting. As a graduate of UT and seeing how my university is being pushed in a direction that is skewing less intellectual, it’s a very important to distinction to draw. And Nathan and Allison did it in spades.
Friday saw us diving into XXXX2 with a vengeance. Lots of blood. We did five kill scenes in a very long day. Aaron Gaudin continues to amaze with the F/X work he’s doing. We shot at the sae place most of Abram’s Hand was shot. It was nice to be home.
Saturday had a special treat. Cherry Pie finds Jesus in the arms of Jerry played by Mike Williams. Mike is a long time Twitchy supporter and the manager for Texas Renegade: much of the sound behind Twitchy Dolphin.
So we continue to move forward. Actors from Toronto and LA will be in town in the coming weeks after we finish strong. Next week will be epic and then, we take a break for the Bare Bones Film festival.
