CAmm Slamm 2004
This past weekend found us all in Baltimore to take part in CAmm Slamm, another weekend film competition. We are starting to become weekend film regulars; Dial-a-Spy last year, Lunch Break earlier this year, CAmm Slamm this past weekend, and the National Film Challenge in two weeks… who the hell needs sleep anyway! Luckily this time we were only going to help friends make their film for CAmm Slamm, which meant we didn’t have to be involved in as much of the organization and setup to pull the whole deal off. On the other hand, it was decided at some point to up the stakes and make two films in a weekend rather than all the other suckers who wanted to get their precious sleep and make one film. The films would intersect and, when played in remote succession during the Sunday evening screening, would pull off a stunning ruse. Somehow, both films got done, totaling over 14 minutes of footage in a mere 48 hours. The first film is Night of the Science, a black and white pulp horror/sci-fi thriller where man tries to play god and inevitably screws all of humanity. The second film, Day of the Meth, follows two unlikely heros in a effort to get a decent meal and save their asses from getting shot. I got to flex my acting muscles again in Day of the Meth, playing a gruff drug dealer hell-bent on getting even. The films may be online someday, but until then you will have to get by with the CAmm Slamm behind-the-scenes photos I took.
