Shameless self-promotion alert: intrepidLA is making a movie! It's going to be called Haynes Holiday: Portrait Of Two-Fisted Masculinity, starring me and my two-fisted masculinity. (It used to have more fists, but then there was that accident with the table saw...)
For real, though, we are actually making a project. Here's the story: every year at the SXSW Film Festival, they hold a "Grindhouse Trailer Contest", seeing who can create the best fake trailer for an imaginary 70's/80's-style exploitation movie. (The recently-released Hobo With A Shotgun started off as a faux-preview there.) And this summer, we'll be writing/producing a two-and-a-half-minute masterwork of our own, entitled Hipster Holocaust. It's about a deranged nerd living in Silverlake who gets pushed too far and decides to wreak bloody vengeance on his skinny-jean infested neighborhood. (Think 500 DAYS OF SUMMER meets FALLING DOWN, or a slasher movie starring the population of the Coachella parking lot.) Believe me when I say there will be many "YES!" moments involved in this.
But in order to make this demented dream a reality, we have to put together a budget, which brings us to... our Kickstarter campaign! My trusty co-writer/producer Jon DA and I will be, in exchange for your generosity, offering up everything from swag (hand-drawn "hipsterized" portraits of you!) to DVD copies of the film (neat!) to a chance to actually be KILLED in the movie (OMG YOU GUYS!!). Dig deep, ladies and gentlemen, because let's face it, these hipsters are not going to murder themselves.
