We are very happy to announce that our latest short film with Wichita’s mixed martial arts superstar David ” Caveman” Rickels has  been picked to screen at the 2015 Tallgrass Film Festival. What makes this exciting is its a local story being told at a major film festival that’s hosted in the same city! Caveman Evolved is just the latest story with Rickels and us with maybe more to come. ;-). It will screen as part of a 4 day film festival and show on day 3 at the Roxy Downtown in Wichita Saturday October 17th at 930am part of the shorts program. I know its kind of early but we have a nice little treat for those of you who make it out.

If you find the director Lester “LD” Rowe at the screening he will be giving away 30 special edition DVDs of Caveman Evolved with an added bonus film included and an autographed postcard by David Rickels.

Saddle Above the Axle was the first time I decided I would and could do this film-making thing. I always said it was an accident that I even made a documentary. I was out learning how to use a camera and camera techniques and playing with the idea of making cinematic style trailers. One day I decided to go to the Wichita Skate Park downtown and shoot footage with this vague idea to make a story about the skatepark. I was shooting and a guy came to me and asked what I was shooting for and if I was a scout. I told him no I am a “filmmaker” looking to do a story on the skatepark. I asked if I could interview him and he had zero problem with it. I took the camera and asked his name  and age and he said “I am Damion Looney 26 years old from Kansas…” From there he told me a story about Continue reading
