I’m gearing up for the final stretch of my upcoming film, “Fantastic.” Funds are halfway there and if some of my freelance clients paid me, I’d be pretty close. The film is my epic homage/parody of Disney’s “Fantasia” with original music and visuals by moi. The music is done. It’s here – vincentgargiulo.bandcamp.com. Some of the segments are also done.
My time has been spent raising funds and editing the “Hooker Historian” segment of the film. We shot that back in January. It’s the longest segment and is coming along nicely. There is love. There is loss. There is full frontal nudity. There is a horse. There is Fisherman’s Wharf. Really, something for everyone. I also have a edited version of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s brand new song but I’m saving that one to share.
In the beginning of September, I’ll be filming the last big segment – sort of a cross between Office Space & The Red Balloon. Then there’s just a bunch of tiny little skits and sketches. Prepare yourself Bay Area actors – I have glorified extra roles coming your way. I’ve been told the SF Indiefest submission deadline is in Nov so it’d be neato to get the whole film done by then. I am the previous Woodcock Jury Prize winner and I need to go for the two-peat. If I bust my ass and become even more anti-social, I may be able to do it.
I would be a bad businessman if I didn’t mention you can still donate to the film at www.vincentgargiulo.com. I really hope someone takes me up on the “Record your DVD commentary” reward. Fantastic news & pics forthcoming. It’s gone on a little too long for my tastes and I’m excited to finish it and release it onto the masses. Should be my best yet.
