This has been a pretty busy week. I’ve finished the sound design and
vfx for “Certified,” locked picture on Updating Paige, rehearsed for
the Martial Arts film…and wrote, shot, edit, and delivered a new
The new project was a promotion for TRON put on by Nokia. It was entirely shot on the new Nokia N8 phone. It should be going online soon…and once it does I’ll have a fun behind-the-scenes blog about the process.
This week I’m going to share an amazing trailer from 1979 for a film called “Starcrash.”
Imagine if Ray Harryhausen made a low budget “Star Wars” rip-off…
this is THE REAL LUKE the boring Luke had to get manicured or whatever those metropolitainexuals do.
you may be wondering why Im filling in this week on the blog? It’s because my latest project has priemiered on the intranet! and I wanted to tell you the story – first hand about THE REAL LUKE: PURSUANCE OF JUSTICE, a major motion picture coming soon!
it all started when HOLLYWOOD came knocking… needless to say, I answered their call!!!
Apparently they’d seen my Coca-Cola commercial that I filmed in Chile. They told me I had “it” (whatever that is) and that they wanted to make a major motion picture deal with me!
Of course I said yes!!! After interviewing a few directors…and turning them all down, I decided to direct myself. After all, no one knows the Real Luke like the Real Luke knows him!
soon I was off to sunny Southern California. it was a long trek, so my beard got pretty bushy. haha!
the first thing that was up was to go location scouting. (I won the hat and sweatshirt by taking 2nd place in a guitar solo competition, but that’s another story!!!)
it didn’t take me long to find the spots I like – I’m desisive!
soon it was time for the shoot. this is as “Hollywood” as I get. Haha!!!
the producers told me this was a “gorilla shoot” but I didn’t see the KING of the jungle anywhere! he probably knew better than to mess with The REAL Luke
this fellow John was odd, but he took good “footage” – have to remember to bring him along on my next big game hunt to record my trophies!!!
heres me directing! I’m pretty good at it! they kept saying I had great “chops” and they hadn’t even scene me with my hatchet yet!!! LA people are funny!
the next day we went deep into the desert. here is my cast!
this guy is a REAL hillbilly. we paid him in moonshine and “tabaccee”
the action scenes where intense! I do all my own stunts!
I was genuinely scared for my life here! wouldn’t you be???
after the desert we headed into the mountains and I trimmed off the rest of my beard.
I was sad to see it go…but the film required it!
after all, what would take a normal man a year to grow only took me a couple months!!! haha!
for some reason the producers couldn’t get a real bigfoot for the shoot. I mean, if they’d done there homework – they’d know I was the ultimate BIGFOOT trapper!!!
well that’s enough of me talking – time to show you the goods!!!
