Wow! I have so much updating to do this week. Sorry it has been a while but between work, charity work and working on Don Dohler’s Crawler I have had no time. So this week I am doing some updating. To wet the appetite here are some samples of things to come.

 Don Dohler 1979

Okay, you see this cool photo? This is courtesy of John Dods – filmmaker and special makeup effects wizard times 10. John and I are Facebook friends and he recently posted a TON of never before seen photos from the 1st (1979) Nightbeast shoot. Talk about a walk down memory lane. The thin handsome gent seen above is Don Dohler, the Godfather of Do ItYourself Indie Filmmaking.  This was taken on location back in 1979. Thanks for sharing John!


Okay, now these cool people? They are Ali Lukowski, Erik Kristopher Myers, and Laura Myers. They are attending the Hot Media Awards  ceremony where their film – ROULETTE – walked away with a BOATLOAD of awards! Congrats! Many thanks to Leanna Chamish for use of this photo.


Now, this dapper gent is Jon Cross – the host of a fantastic podcast I listen to called THE AFTER MOVIE DINER.  I urge anyone that needs a smile and a laugh for the day to check out this entertaining show. Jon is a big supporter of Smash or Trash and has become a huge fan of Don Dohler’s movies. He interviewed George Stover on the podcast and is sporting the very spiffy George Stover T-shirt now available through Smash or Trash. More on that later.


Now George Stover here? This guy is a great actor, and has worked for people like John Waters, Don Dohler and a bevy of other talented directors. Well he was at this Hot Media Awards Ceremony and was taken by COMPLETE surprise to find out that he won the Lifetime Achievement Award in Independent Film! He also just won the prestigious Rondo Award and was inducted into the Monster Kid Hall of Fame. He is holding a beautiful collage presented to him from designer Carl Porter. Congratulations to George! Thanks to Les Bradley and Leanna Chamish for the photo.


As I may have stated – I am doing some work where part of the proceeds are going to charity. Above is an in-progress shot of a t-shirt design based on Don Dohler. Don passed away from two forms of cancer, so when the shirts and other merchandise become available, part of the money is going to go towards the fight against cancer. I’ll post updates as I get closer to being finished with it. A must for any Don Dohler fan.


We have a new cafe press store where you can buy Smash or Trash t-shirts, mouse pads, shot glasses, beer steins, and tons of others items that make great gifts for the indie filmmaker in your life. the link to the new store is HERE. Remember, if you buy items from our actor George Stover selection, part of those proceeds are going to go towards the Maryland Crime Victims’ Resource Center. Get your gear today!
