Finally!!!




Well I am excited to say that Rednecks in Space is currently in development for a 6 min. short. It only took what, 6 yrs. to get this thing in gear. If it weren't for the boys over at Six Point Harness kicking me in the ass to get this thing into action, I don't think it would ever see the light of day. Thank you dudes!

It's been about three weeks now and we have a final script thanks to Alain Matz. I just finished the turns on Billy and Elvis. (the two fellas posted above) My pal Kelsey Mann is currently bustin' out the boards. And just this past Wednesday we recorded the voices for our Rednecks and aliens! The talented Eric Bauza voiced Billy and the alien mob boss Zaan. Matt Danner did the voices for Elvis and the alien thug Nune. And last but not least, the voice for Billy and Elvis's dad Pops.......... David Arquette! He kicked ass playing a pissy 'ole fart of a father confined to an iron lung. Incredible job man! Thanx again for a wonderful job fellas! I couldn't be happier with the results.

If you want to follow the progress of the short I will be posting drawings, animatics and some dialogue on Six Point Harness blog. http://tirefirefilms.blogspot.com/ Also check development of "Sir Leo McMight the Foot Tall Knight", "Clawdad", "The Ape Hangers", and "Roaches on the Moon"on the Tire Fire blog.
