Where We At

I smell hideous. I smell like couch sleeping and coffee-farts. Gross. I haven't seen a female ( aside) all week. I am currently chained to the computer, editing video to the point of mania. Our backlog of projects has gotten nearly unmanageable. Here is what we are slogging through right now:

Self Helpless release - I know it has been a while since you all came out and saw Self Helpless at your local (porn) theater. Well we are finally ready to release the film on bittorrent and DVD. It took us about 3 months to get the final cut of the movie finished, and get the DVD mastered. We have put some cool extras into the DVD including some exclusive Devin the Dude concert footage and the requisite deleted scenes. The bittorrent version of Self Helpless will be coming out one week before the DVD. This extra version of the film will take a couple of days to put together, but hopefully a lot of people will see it. If things work out we just might be throwing a little shindig to celebrate the DVD release. Keep an eye on the ole Twitter and Facebook over the next few weeks.

Devin the Dude's "What I Be On" Video - Yeah, we have jumped hard into the music video game. We were out in Houston for 5 days at the beginning of February shooting a lovely video for Devin's new album (dropping on 4/20). We are in the process of editing this masterpiece, and it should be released in the next few weeks.

Soul Khan's "SMD" Video - We shot this classic boom bap style video, along with a doc short about Fat Beats NYC, in January. The video should be done by the end of this month. The whole Brown Bag All Stars crew came out and represented for the video. Soul Khan put in 12 straight hours of work despite a 102 degree fever. Nuff said.

Professor David Veslocki - On the same NYC trip we shot a video for guitar virtuoso David Veslocki. It is definitely a departure from our usual fair (guns, cocaine, milk-farts and titties), but it was time to expand our horizons. Veslocki plays guitar like The Drake smokes weed, very fucking well. He blessed our score with a few lovely compositions so it was cool to return the flavor.

The Pilot - We are shopping a super double extra secret pilot (read: emailing the 3 people we know in Hollywood 5 or 6 times a day, which accomplishes very little since they all work in bars). If we run out of beer before the pilot sells then we will probably just shoot it ourselves out of boredom.

To everyone that has carried the Self Helpless flag o' this many months, we thank you. We won't let you down. You will actually be able to buy, download, and watch the movie very soon. And we will have more cool stuff to follow shortly thereafter. Thanks for all the support, you are all on the guest list.
