Here’s a lil demo reel of what @moviemountain has been up to for the last two years and a sneak peak of some our still in the dark stuff. We’re looking for representation to help us navigate the world of music videos, commercials and GREAT BEYOND. Know somebody that knows somebody? Hit us up and let’s make some shiitake mushrooms 🍄
For the last year, I've been working on a project documenting a @alfasenturion and a group of friends that collect barn owl pellets to make money. What is a barn owl pellet and how do you make money from it? Well barn owls eat small rodents and puke up their skeletons and fur in the form of small grey pellets. Elementary school classes buy these pellets and dissect them to learn about mammalian anatomy and barn owl's diets. PUKE, the title of the forthcoming documantary, follows a group of friends as they search for quick cash and other answers in the decaying American West. Here's a few lil teasers and some Venn diagrams that sum up what the film is about. 🦉🦉🦉🦉🦉@moviemountain#pukefilm#greygold
I just got back from spending a week in the Panamanian jungle with my 92 year old grandmother and our family. Her dad, came here over 60 times, starting in the 1920s and continuing into the 1980s, doing field research for the @smithsonian. As a young girl, my grandmother tagged along on some of these trips, living in the jungle and helping my great grandfather with this studies (in the black and white photo, my grandmother is in the bottom right, holding her pet sloth, Toby.) Nothing really puts current happenings and issues in perspective like spending time in a place as pivotal and tumultuous as Panama with family members that have seen so much.
We’ve been jamming at @moviemountain for the last six months, building sets, puppets, props and a miniature space ship for a proof of concept for an animated feature film. The working title for the project is, “Wake Me Up When We Get There.” Think of it as a road trip story that just so happens to be set in space staring two robots with human consciousness (their human analogs are in stasis in the ships cryogenic chambers) on a journey through the galaxy, seeing the sights, staying one step in front of the man, experimenting with local pharmaceuticals, and visiting fellow outkasts all in time to make it to a remote quadrant of space in time to watch two black holes collide. It’s certainly the biggest project I’ve ever taken on and it’s been so wild seeing it come together. Today, we start filming the first sequences of the proof of concept. Once we’re finished, @samosier is going to help us shop the project and turn it into an animated feature film. Swipe all the way to the right to watch a tour of the set. So many amazing people are working on this project and I couldn’t be more excited about it @moviemountain@memmonz@robb_gardner@samosier@circa1964@jspake@timothytickle@email@example.com@theshelbyfoundation@tim__yates@theunclepaw@levittoid
A year ago, @moviemountain wrapped up work on POOL SCUM, a stop motion ode to the terrible, yet amazing sub genre of 80s retellings of Romeo and Juliet set to action sport, films like Rad and Thrashin’ @joshbrolin. A year after finishing POOL SCUM and two years after breaking ground on the studio we’re in the middle of our next project. Everything we learned from the last few years, we are putting into a proof of concept for a stop motion science fiction feature film set on a space ship. There will be robots, space travel, and aliens. For the time being, here's Episodes 1-3 of POOL SCUM.
