Tag: Trailer: The Movie!
Full Disclosure is probably my best known short. Maybe my best known film, if you ask IMDB. It played in a ton of festivals and won a dozen awards. (Watch the beginning of Full Disclosure here.)
The short is available on a few different DVDs. First, it’s a bonus short on the Entry Level DVD distributed by Porchlight Entertainment. A great distribution company called Official Best of Fest distributes the short on three of its excellent short film compilations “Award Winning Films That Will Make You Laugh”, “Award Winning Films About Romance” and the “Official Best of Fest Sampler”. I’ve seen the collections and I’m a big fan. They’re $45, which is a lot, but totally worth it. The company is devoted to getting wonderful unknown indie flicks out there to the real world, and they’re doing a terrific job. I highly recommend the collections. (Needless to say, I even highlier recommend the Entry Level/Full Disclosure combo DVD. At the moment, finding it can be a problem, but it is available at NetFlix and some stores.)
Now I’m also preparing to sell Full Disclosure on a DVD from this site. Why yet another way to buy Full Disclosure on DVD? Well this is the same quality as the others, but the price is a lot less. Like under nine bucks. (Just under: $8.95.) But it’s currently the cheapest way to see the film in DVD quality. The DVD is a professional glass-master DVD like any studio movie and it contains two of my other shorts as a bonus, Trailer: The Movie! and Back Up, Please.
You can see more about it on the Store Page.
Of course, Full Disclosure is also available on the iTunes Store. To me, the DVD is a lot nicer, but the iTunes version still looks pretty good for two bucks.
I recommend that you watch full screen.
Trailer: The Movie! was the first short film I wrote and directed. We shot it in LA in 2001 and it played in a ton of film festivals. I’ve lost count how many exactly but it seems like it was over 40. (Watch Trailer: The Movie!)
A lot of my lasting friendships with other filmmakers were formed during this project. Paco Farias starred, produced (along with me and Lisa Guzman) and edited the film. This was pre-Final Cut Pro and we worked in an empty Avid bay at MatchFrame in Burbank late at night. (Paco was working there as a vault manager and later an editor.) DP Clay Westervelt and composer Brandon Roberts also became long time friends and filmmaking co-conspirators.
Trailer! let me go to a lot of film festivals and figure out what the independent world was all about. It also got me a lot of distribution offers. At various times the film has been distributed by six or seven different companies.
At the moment, it isn’t under any exclusive licenses, though it is still offered on the Internet under some non-exclusive licenses. So I figure if it’s going to be on the Internet, I might as well have it on my own site. I’ve re-encoded and uploaded Trailer: The Movie! to this site.
