Recent birthdays! We had some late June birthdays and some upcoming July birthdays that deserve a shout out!
See this handsome guy? (The still is from Chris LaMartina’s FANGSGIVING – I think he looks a little like Wes Craven). This is Les Bradley – excellent Smash or Trash corresponder that did a lion’s share of the editing on the first Smash or Trash episode. He is an all around awesome guy and had a June birthday. Happy birthday Les!
Filmmaker Mitch Klein (Left-June 30th) and actor George Stover (right July 3rd) also have celebrated recent birthdays. Both are super guys and great supporters of Smash or Trash. We wish them the happiest of birthdays!
Special thanks to Leanna Chamish for providing these photos (above). These were taken on location of Wayne Shipley’s new western DAY OF THE GUN. Some familiar faces could be seen in the crowd and this particular day of shooting revolved around and old-time baseball game. I’m looking forward to more updates about this!
CRAWLER UPDATE: The final timeline is in place and editing is in the works. What does this mean? This means while Mitch Klein concentrates on the visual effects, I have taken it upon myself to work on the credits, the editing, the audio, sound effects, and laying in the soundtrack by Justin Timpane. I showed a very, very rough cut of it to Mitch. We had a good laugh at my animatics (scenes in place for the real visual effects) but I got favorable feedback. Because of this I am tightening up everything. Progress folks – progress!
The Smash or Trash store now has a TON of new items available! The only place to get your official Don Dohler and George Stover items. Even better, part of the proceeds go to charity!!! The link to these great grabs is right HERE.
