Chip Gubera news

SONG OF THE DEAD will be screening on Halloween and Nov. 1 at the Festival BUENOS AIRES ROJO SANGRE VII in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

[try this for an English version of the page.]

Update 11/3/06 - SOTD has won the Public Prize (Audience Favorite) and won Special Jury Mention for its originality at Rojo Sangre. Congratulations cast & crew!!

There's a site up (finally) for WRESTLING WOMEN VS. THE BRAINIAC - not a whole lot of info (like MIL MASCARAS VS. THE AZTEC MUMMY), but there's some nice stills.

FIRECRACKER and Steve Balderson

Back from the pick-up shoot for BUNKER HILL, I stumbled across an interesting posting on the blog LOST IN NEGATIVE SPACE, regarding local (Wamego is only a mere 40 miles from Topeka) filmmaker Steve Balderson and his recent feature FIRECRACKER... which led me to THE RUED MORGUE, a blog by San Antonio writer Russ Ruediger. In August, Ruediger did a review of FIRECRACKER - a movie that he did not like, but which he could not just dismiss - which led to him interviewing Balderson in two segments - 1st and 2nd .

Being a freelance writer and working on my own story about FIRECRACKER for the next issue of MICRO-FILM, I can't comment on Mr. Ruediger's writings... but the exchange between Mr. Ruediger and Mr. Balderson is important to share, since they touch on a lot of issues that normally don't get talked about regarding film and filmmaking. And, in an oblique way, they also provide a great commentary on the recent film experiences that I've had, without having to directly name names.

If you haven't seen FIRECRACKER yet, I recommend that you rent it at your nearest store (whether local or Netflix).

Testing... testing....

Was having some issues with publishing to the blog, which entailed having to kill a couple of the most recent entries... I'll repost them above.
While I was waiting, I decided to give the page a new look and redo some of the links. Hope you like the changes.
