Updates: My Rawhead and Bloodybones Project

PG PORN: Roadside Ass-sistance

If you haven't seen it yet, I think it's about time you did. Of course my role was the same as before. A carry-over credit from last spring. And it looks like The Good Boys have settled on a logo. And it's my fave next to the Flexoids' one. Which is The Good Boys [
Used Condoms Edition]. And this just happens to be the censored version. James got scared and decided the uncensored version was too extreme for their sponsors. I tried to clean it up a bit and he hrmmed and said that might work. But I guess he went for my second fave which is the toy gun jolly roger. At one point they were toying around with the idea of using several different logos at the end of each episode, but possibly for consistancy they settled on the jolly roger. That's a-okay in my book.

In Other News...

My manager seems pretty confident about putting Island Macabre out on the market. I'm working on a new draft presently that expands a lot of characters and subplots. Originally, the script was 93 pages, but it looks like it's gonna be a big, fat, juicy 105. My original intention was to keep it as small as possible to post on Inktip. For those who don't know, Inktip is a little marketing site where you can post your script and hope to score a few interests and possibly sell your work. But the thing they DON'T tell you at Inktip, is that most of the producers there are small to micro-budget companies. So, if you have a big budget, high concept story, don't bother. Inktip just raised it's prices last year right in the middle of an economic crisis. That puts a pinch in a writer's pocket.

The Holiday Break

Not only was I doing some PG-Porn and some Sparky & Mikaela stuff, I was also working on a small film noir script over the holiday break. I cranked out an 85-page rough draft of a script called The Bruise Box that centers around one setting and a very small cast. The intention was to make it appealing to post on Inktip and to possibly shoot myself if I wanted. It still needs to be expanded a bit and some kinks worked out, but I'm pretty happy with it. It's a dark, complicated, psycho-thriller that uses a Rawhead and Bloodybones parallel to tell the story. Only Rawhead and Bloodybones in this case are cops. Yep. Did a lot of research on cops this past season. You'd probably seen me post a lot of police-related stuff on James's page. But this is the story about the bad guys who wind up being the good guys. And the police who end up being the bad guys.

What's New?

Doing research on a lot of bounty hunters. My next project will be a buddy story about hot bounty hunter chicks that go around snatching up bad guys and committing a lot of mayhem along the way. Been watching a lot of Dog The Bounty Hunter and up next is Family Bonds. This next project is gonna be fun. After writing something dark and twisted like The Bruise Box, I want to do something that's just plain fun.

One Last Thing...

James is gonna be on Jeffnuts again this Wednesday so be sure to watch. If you miss it, don't sweat it. I'm sure they'll archive it nice and pretty. If you missed the last time he was on, check it out here.

And where the fuck are all the jiggas?! Where you folks at? It's gettin' lonely over at the JGAS boards. Got a bunch of stuff to chill about!

Later days and have fun,

PG-Porn: Roadside Ass-istance

Below are a few facts from the set of JAMES GUNN’S PG PORN: ROADSIDE ASS-ISTANCE brought to you by James himself:

- This was actually the first episode of PG PORN we shot, before NAILING YOUR WIFE – it was, essentially, the pilot. We shot it over a year ago.

- Although this was the first episode, Sasha wasn’t the first adult actress on board the PG PORN SERIES. That was Belladonna, who we cast in GENITAL HOSPITAL (the 2nd episode we shot). But Bella’s schedule was busy at the time, and she wasn’t able to immediately shoot like Sasha was.

- The budget was under $2,000.00.

- Many people will notice a joke in this is similar to a joke in the fake trailer from SCREAM QUEENS that ended up being the “Clip of the Year” on Talk Soup. That is, the “And by record, I mean, ‘VAGINA’” moment. We actually shot this joke first. The morning we were going to shoot the SCREAM QUEENS trailer, I decided to throw this joke in there, thereby ripping myself off. Because getting the Clip of the Year on Talk Soup was the proudest moment of my life, I don’t regret it.

- Sasha Grey came in remarkably prepared – she knew her lines backwards and forwards and had the whole thing worked out. Unlike a lot of adult actresses, she is even prettier in person than she is on screen.

- After this, Sasha Grey was cast as the lead role in Steven Soderbergh’s new film, THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE. Although she never told me this was due to her performance in PG PORN, I’ll take for granted that this is the case.

- Brian and Sean and Pete Alton helped a lot in directing this thing, since I was on screen the whole time. Trying to focus on both can be frustrating at times. This was the first time I had directed myself in a scene since my cameo in SLiTHER.

- The kittens featured in the episode were cute as fuck. We borrowed them from a Kitten Rescue foster mother and gave Kitten Rescue a sizable donation in return.

- But those little guys were still a pain in the ass to shoot, and kept crawling out of the box and getting away.

- Although it was the first episode we shot, Tyler Bates didn’t do the score for it until last week. I think his music really helps the piece move along. A few people have asked me if they could get the music for PG PORN – well, we’re working on a deal with iTunes to carry all of Tyler’s score for the pieces. I’ll let you know when and if it happens.
