Check Out Stills From My New Film!

As you may or may not know, LCL has a media division which releases films under the Lost Amazon Motion Pictures label. I produce films under my No Budget Cinema production brand and am currently shooting a B horror movie in the truest sense: We're not shooting it A style yet pretending it's B, that is we are actually using a single (cheap) camera process. Our exterior lighting is a reflector and the sun. We're shooting day for night. Our actors are who's willing and available. The whole thing is costing about $400 or so and we're shooting it in about six or seven shooting days. It has been a popular thing for producers of better films to do parodies of B movie grindhouse style pictures without being able to resist a real lighting crew, industry standard cinematography, and actors directed to be acting as actors acting poorly. What results, for me, is a boring exercise in cuteness that is neither entertaining nor reflective of the low end horror movies I grew up with, some of which are gems, many of which are god-awful. That's why I decided to actually replicate the real process as nearly as possible: one open market camera, models as actors, costuming on the fly from discount stores and various closets of family members, a swift shooting schedule and little cash.

What separates our film from the average bad student attempt? Content. I'm a good writer and my films will go places most people trying to be "taken seriously" will not. Since I'm not a fan of gore and other disgusting elements of the current industry 'standard' horror film, I gotta give the audience something. And since I'm not looking to entertain the crowd at the local multiplex, you can bet my film will be early 70s grindhouse meets Ed Wood with a dash of John Waters. We also have original composed music for the film!

Stay tuned for more announcements over the next couple of weeks and in the meantime check out the production stills from the first two shooting days... No Budget Cinema's 'Sloppy Dead Seconds'

Ben Affleck and Batman

OK,

I don't really care enough about who plays Batman in a Superman movie. Ben Affleck has proven himself. What I'd rather see is the next John Carter movie or the 20,000 Leagues remake get back on track. What about a new Sinbad film or even a big screen version of the Allan Quatermain book that followed King Solomon's Mines.

Personally, my only favorite comic book hero was Moon Knight. Other than that, I pretty much grew up reading Sad Sack, Sgt Rock, Weird War Tales, various 70s horror comics and Mad Magazine when it was good (pre-80s). I'd love to see a Moon Knight movie. MK is kind of Batman, a touch of Daredevil, a whole lot of The Shadow.

I predict Ben Affleck will be just fine.

The film festival LCL was sponsoring has been indefinitely postponed because the theater was sold to a new owner and they want the date for another event.

The Pulp Adventure & Fantasy Indie Film Expo scheduled for Sat Nov 2nd is now postponed until further notice. I will be talking with the new owner about a new date next year as he is open to such events and we really want to make this happen.

Stay tuned...

New Movie from LCL/Lost Amazon/No Budget

The script was finished a month or so ago, the actors are cast -- except one, and we're trying to get this one financed before we start shooting. It's still very micro-budget. This one is a contemporary grindhouse style terror film, will be in color and have sound. Check out our campaign to raise money for the remaining actress to be cast...

Memory Lane

I can't believe it has been four years since my magazine started its second volume and ended that summer of 2009. It was the autumn of 2008 when the bottom fell out of the economy and the presidential election became everyone's obsession, thus destroying a fair percentage of the marketing momentum for a lot of stuff. Since that point in recent history, classic adventure and pulp have declined in public interest. Diehards will disagree, but that's why they're diehards -- and thank God they are there. Still, I went from ten thousand or more downloads every monthly issue to a few hundred in the course of three months. It was dismal and depressing and has disappointed me in the public. If you're not selling vampires, zombies or political paranoia, you've been marginalized. Hopefully that will change soon, but until then I'm posting the covers of my magazine for a rejuvenating trip down memory lane, since my company is in its eleventh year.

This magazine was my life for over a year. It was launched with great passion and was a lot of work three weeks every month. It brought attention to my label in a way like nothing else I had done up to that time and I'm proud of it. It also brought me to the attention of the e-zine/fanzine/micropress world and, I was told by others in that world and saw for myself how, it made an impact, changing the way others produced their magazines. LCL Magazine brought more color and content variety to the field. For a while, we were the hot shooting star and that felt good. I would like to do that again, but our society is hypnotized by other things right now and the market has been demolished. The magazine was free, but it was a LOT of work for one person to do -- and I did it all, even coming up with pseudonyms for myself so that it would appear I had a staff of writers, LOL. Occasionally, others would contribute, but LCL Magazine was brought to you by me and William Michael Mott. In the past few years, several people have asked if I'd ever do it again or release a printed version. I would if I thought it would sell, but I'm not doing that much work to give it away again.

Anyway, enjoy the archive of covers which I created from photos, public domain art and photoshopped images each month...

 The Premier Issue! I was so proud of myself for doing my part to spread the word about Secret of the Incas, offering an exclusive interview with Fraser Heston about his dad's experience making the film. The interview was intended to be with Charlton Heston, but Fraser graciously agreed to do it. The cover art featured Debbie Teeters photographed by Douglas Nason.  Jan 2008

  The second issue was very exciting because it was the first with the new title banner. Featuring both the art of Bob Aul and my photography (photoshopped here) of model Lindy Greene, this was the issue that came out two weeks after the premier issue and really caught the attention of the pulp micropress world. Feb 2008


The third issue was one of my favorites. By this issue, certain regular features were beginning to take shape. But the cover I really loved. I was fueled by the massive response we were getting so I put this issue together still in the heady days of the response to the debut of the magazine with the first two issues.
March 2008


Another of my favorite covers. If you look closely, you'll see the tip of the Matterhorn obscuring the title banner. This was the first issue in which I played with the visual dimension in that manner. Apr 2008

 This is one of the weak covers, in my opinion. It wasn't that I suddenly got lazy, it was that I really wanted to use the leopard image. Regardless, our reader downloads were going strong! May 2008

 Definitely one of the best covers of all the issues. I was really pleased with how this one turned out. June 2008

Another of my favorite covers. Featuring the art of Bob Aul and Muscha, this was my fun summer cover. I recall doing this one in the weeks leading up our annual pilgrimage to the San Diego Comic Con. Those were the days. July 2008.

This cover is awesome -- except for the text. It doesn't jump the page clearly enough. However, it does feature the Comic Con of that year, so the issue was another goodie. Our numbers were continuing strong. August 2008.

This was a good cover -- except for the text. Again, I blew it there. Other than that, though, I really like the graphic, photoshopped entirely from my own collection. Sep 2008

 Ah! A personal favorite! The Halloween issue! I photoshopped Lindy Greene onto a now very popular pulp era piece. This one was simple but just right. I recall this issue was among the first to start including promo ads flavored with my twisted sense of humor. Oct 2008.

 This  issue featured awesome cover art by Leo Leibelman whom I met at the Comic Con. I later found out the issue wasn't too appreciated by some pulp gurus (greybeards) because of those colorful promo ads I started running. Because a few guys didn't approve, our distribution situation changed. Honestly, fuck those guys. More people loved my funny ads than said they did not. Unfortunately, this was the month of the presidential election and the economy was about to take a dump. Nov 2008


The Christmas issue! I absolutely love this cover! Believe it or not, it's a total composite. And I got to interview a really cute actress with an adorable British accent. This was the first issue we didn't have even a thousand downloads.

Volume 2, Issue 1: Jan 2009. Another low month. The issue was fine, but America was gripped in either their euphoria or shock, political obsession remaining at a high point. Our lowest download numbers since the magazine debuted and it never did much better. I was not happy. The cover was another using old pulp era art.


Feb 2009. This was the beginning of the end. After the dismal numbers for the January issue, I decided to make the magazine bi-monthly. It was just too much work for a few hundred downloads. I really liked this cover art, too.

I was very pleased with this cover! Another composite from old pulp era art, I thought it really popped. I still thought I'd be able to get the numbers up, though the Feb issue had not done any better than January.

The final issue of LCL Magazine, it turned out. The cover art was all composite and photoshopped, of course. Not bad, and kinda sad doing this one. I recall I was thinking up another magazine during this period, something that would feature classic adventure and steampunk. Released Summer 2009.
