Clerks Guide To The Galaxy – A #StayAtHome 48 Hour Mashup Trailer

 

We spent the weekend toiling as and keeping our minds busy with the worldwide 48Hour film competition (April 3-5, 2020)

We had to choose a movie from Column A and a movie from Column B and long story short, we went with Clerks and Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

Aside from so many worldly things trying to keep Eric from doing this not limited to Rogers shutting his internet off prematurely due to a switching of gear…he stepped up and provided some demented live action/green screen footage.

Lisa Kennedy (Trillian Brie), Paul French (Jayphod Bobblebrox) and Patrick Williamson (Dante/Marvin) all helped provide needed voices.

So thanks for all the fish, and hopefully you get a kick out of this silly little mish mash during these less than cheerful times.

Tone Death – A Serial Killer Musical

416film_tone_death_movie_poster_8x12_11022019_rpBack in October 416Film.com took part in the Toronto 48 Hour film contest once more.

Our genre: Musical.

This may be my least favourite genre but I feel like everyone involved busted their asses for this one. It didn’t put us in the finals but it is a weird, fun little film with 6.5 original songs.

Thanks to everyone involved including Paul French for the music. The writing group of Patrick Wiliiamson, Eric Myles, Ibrahim Mohamed and Rob Paul.

An old schoolmate Michael Obadia came out to do cinematography and ended up playing a role singing The Conspiracy Song, Lisa Kennedy made her 416Film debut with as a adult/child serial killer, and as (mostly) always Neil Bennet and Patrick Williamson did not let us down by playing a couple of fairly stupid detectives.

Written, shot and edited in 48 hours (although lightly tweaked after the original screening in November please feel free to abuse your soul with 416Film’s latest offering: Tone Death. Hope you enjoy it!

Fake News! Music Video for the Buzz Kings is Live

fn_2020_subway_stillAfter several…several… several months of picking it up and putting it down we are very pleased to announce the music video for Fake News by Buzz Kings is completed.
Live action footage was shot back in June and animation took place mainly over 2019.

magrittes“Fake News” is the first single from the bands upcoming CD TruthLies. The song takes a look at the divisive political times in which we live, and how the 24 hour news cycle amplifies that division.

“Social media and the internet have had a huge effect on the business of news,” says songwriter and guitarist Paul French. “Now that anyone with a blog or a Twitter account thinks that they can call themselves a journalist, it’s become a challenge to know who to believe.”

Buzz Kings is comprised of Andrew Kramer (Lead vocal), Paul French (Guitar, Vocal), Steve Thom (Bass, Vocal) and John Vella (Drums).

Directed, Edited and animated by Rob Paul

Shot by Eric Myles and Rob Paul.

Tone Death – a 48 Hour Film Musical

416film_tone_death_movie_poster_8x12_11022019_rp
In October 416film participated in the 10th annual Toronto 48 Hour film contest and after doing so many of these we finally landed the dreaded “Musical” genre.

Did we allow that to stop us? No!

Did we think about allowing it to stop us?

A little bit.

But with our motley crew of regulars including Patrick Williamson, Neil Bennett, Pamela Tophen and Paul French we added some completely new blood to the mix with Michael Obadia, Lisa Kennedy and Ibrahim Mohamed who all went above and beyond for this outing.

The film screened on Nov. 16 at the Revue theatre and played so much better than we could have expected.
So thanks to all who came out and thanks to those who worked so hard on this weird little film.
