The Mix is in Post!!!
We have wrapped a long-winded & demanding seven months of principal photography, & are currently in post production for The Mix, my low-rent Welles-ian attempt at wearing the hats of writer, director & actor. It will be roughly under 45 minutes, & we hope to roll it out this spring in the festival circuit!
The Mix is an ensemble comedy (ala Guy Ritchie or Martin McDonagh) where a bevy of characters find themselves mixed up in the aftermath of the botched fixing of a reality dating show, with thematic undertones of love, change, & self-discovery in a corrupt world of takers.
Check out the opening scene & behind-the-scenes featurette below, & tweet me at @jaketrischler with the hashtag #themixfilm for any info.
New Mockumentary Short, Scrappers!
Scrappers is a mockumentary short, ala Reno 911 & Trailer Park Boys, in which I directed & did script work for, starring Milan Tomic (Last Call Again) & Jacob Zachar (ABC's Greek, Detention of the Dead, The Hive).
The story follows Mick & Henry through the lens of an amateur crew, as they attempt to break into the unruly business of metal scrapping. Of course, any great scheme isn't without resistance... or other schemers.
We hope to roll it out by Summer 2015. Tweet me at @jaketrischler with the hashtag #scrappersfilm, just because.
MUCH MORE NEWS TO COME!
