Check out this fantastic article on our short films and upcoming Feature Film, The West and the Ruthless! It's with Deke Farrow, a super awesome journalist with Northern California newspaper, The Modesto Bee!
It talks about our upcoming episode on Robert Rodriguez’s El Rey Network with Host John Carpenter, our short films, Jack the Ripper, some behind the scenes on The Umbrella Factory, as well as The West and the Ruthless!
It also includes some wonderfully nice things from the El Rey President himself!
THE SHORT'S MOST IMPRESSIVE QUALITY WAS THE DIRECTION IT TOOK WITH THE ICONIC TITLE CHARACTER – STACKING STORY AGAINST AN UNUSUAL LAYERING OF TIME PERIODS AND STYLE. ... WE PORED OVER COUNTLESS SUBMISSIONS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD TO SELECT THESE 10 SHORTS FOR OUR FIRST SHOWCASE, AND ‘JACK THE RIPPER’ WAS A UNANIMOUS RAISED-HAND FOR INCLUSION.
Daniel Tibbets, El Rey Network president and general manager, also had this to say about our upcoming episode and short film:
“We also gave the short extra kudos for its noir-ish black-and-white color palette, which invoked the style of Robert Rodriguez’s own noir epic, ‘Sin City.’ ”
Then the article goes on to discuss the upcoming feature, The West and the Ruthless and includes our favorite quote (like ever):
“It’s not called ‘The West and the Nice People.”
