"THE CURSE OF THE SACRED STONE" FILMS IN
AMERICA'S GAME SCREENED AT:
REVIEW OF "AMERICA'S GAME"
"A hysterically funny tribute to faux
America's Game is a little easier on the eyes than
Minor Prophets movies, but what really sets this
one apart is the score by Steve Portland. It's absolutely dripping with fake
ultra-patriotism - think of John Williams' score for
Saving Private Ryan but
pumped up on steroids - and it perfectly captures the comedic tone the
Prophets are going for here.
An extremely proud American (Gil Damon) suffering
from osteoporosis goes out to the local ballpark to watch some kids play a
game of baseball. He just about weeps at the apple-pie wholesomeness of it
all as he recounts how baseball is the only original American sport. He
notes that Lacrosse was stolen from "the Injuns" and football is "just a gay
version of rugby." His sentimental views come up against some harsh
realities when he gets beaned in the head by a baseball and robbed.
The man is under the mistaken belief that
Abner Doubleday invented the game. This myth has been debunked by many
sports historians, but of course the
Minor Prophets know that. That's why they make
Damon provides a hilarious voiceover that
sounds like those old Pepperidge Farm commercials. You'll fall out of your
chair laughing when he talks about savoring "the smell of the hot nuts and
the rosin bags." Director Derek Frey cleverly splices in such symbols of
American freedom as the bald eagle and Hulk Hogan.
America's Game is a hysterically funny tribute to

REVIEW FROM OPENFILM
"Kind of like Broken Lizard's Club, except funny."
When your dad's the ref, it's always 4th & 99.
Blurb: “Kind of
like Broken Lizard’s Club, except funny.”
the funniest thing to come out of Pennsylvania since M. Night
Shyamalan. The difference here is that the filmmakers, a comedy
troupe known as The Minor Prophets, are intentionally trying to make
us laugh. Kind of like Broken Lizard’s Club, except funny.
As played by TMP
regular David Amadio, football player Bobby Makefield is somewhere
between 12 and 35 years old. Bobby is at loggerheads with his dad
(Gil Damon). That’s because Mr. Makefield botched a call while
officiating one of Bobby’s games, thus preventing his son from
scoring the winning touchdown. He instigates a confrontation between
Bobby and another player, Tommy Johnson (Steve Kuzmick), and the
“boys” face off in an epic one-on-one match on the field.
parenting on display here is simply hysterical; wait until you see
Mr. Makefield do a belly-flop victory dance after Tommy scores a
touchdown. TMP movies always have an element that’s a little… well,
insane. Here, it’s Brian Gillin as “Favre.” I have no idea why he’s
named Favre. He wears the former Greenbay god’s jersey, and he has a
picture of the quarterback strapped to his wrist. The first time we
see him, he’s walking out of a women’s restroom. This is the stuff
of bizarro, unexplained comedy, like when Ron Burgundy and his
friends got into an all-out brawl in Anchorman.
better filmed and better edited than other TMP movies I’ve seen. The
action on the field is excitingly choreographed and easy to follow.
The actors and filmmakers find just the right note of comic cruelty
– they tickle our funny bone, but they do it with a jagged edged
sword. Long live TMP!

SCORES SCREENING AT THE 2007 FESTIVAL DE CANNES
Filmmakers focus efforts on upcoming feature
Cannes, France -- May 7 – The Minor Prophets and Lazer Film
Productions are pleased to announce the unveiling of their latest film, 4th
and 99, at the Festival de Cannes Short Film Corner from May 16-27.
4th and 99,
directed by Derek Frey, is written and stars David Amadio, Brian Gillin,
Steve Kuzmick and Gil Damon.
cast and crew of the film will be attending the festival from May 18-21. In
addition to promoting 4th and 99, The Minor Prophets and
Derek Frey seek support and funding for a comedic feature-length adaptation
of their short film, We Were Boys. The screenplay for the project,
Straight On Till Morning, will be completed by summer 2008.
screenplay, Straight On Till Morning, centers on four male characters
in their early-mid thirties all suffering from varying degrees of Peter Pan
Syndrome. Unhappy in their adult roles, the friends conjure a Neverland in
the woods of their youth, reliving the past at the expense of the present.
When their regression takes on a frightening realism, threatening their
safety and that of their loved ones, the men discover that happiness is best
sought not in retreat, but in reconciliation of the past with the present,
of fantasy with reality, of the child with the man.
film, 4th and 99, tells the tale of all-state receiver
Bobby Makefield, who just minutes after losing the biggest game of the year,
takes to the turf again in a one-on-one overtime shocker. Driven to the
edge by his referee father, Bobby squares off against the winning team’s
golden boy—not to mention Mr. Makefield’s newest protégé—Tommy Johnson. To
the whipping tune of an autumn wind, the boys perform a savage ballet,
chopping feet and taking pain like the hard-muscle legends of yore. In the
end, the only thing standing between Bobby and victory is the half-man,
half-zebra on the sideline. Will Mr. Makefield spoil yet another big game
for Bobby, or will the unfortunate son turn the tide and stiff-arm his way

born a month after me in the town next door to where I grew up. We went to the
same college - everyone knew of him. I didn't meet Matt until
2002 when he was cast as Karl the Giant in Big Fish. I enjoyed being
able to talk about West Chester University and Philadelphia during our
months in Alabama. He was more than just a giant - he was a talented
and extremely intelligent person with a big heart.
He will be missed.

Technical Difficulties Big Cameo
Big Isle Band has bit part Charlie and the
By John Burnett
For the Hawaii Hawaii Tribune Herald - Entertainment Section
When Tim Burton’s new film “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” opens
nationwide a week from today, sharp-eyed Big Island moviegoers may
notice East Hawaii rock band Technical Difficulties in a cameo of sorts.
Eleven seconds of the band’s video “Mr. Quiet” will appear on a
screen-within-the-screen in the film, which stars Johnny Depp as Willie
Wonka and promises to be decidedly different from 1971’s
semi-psychedelic musical “Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.”
“There’s a scene where each child is reading a
portion of the golden ticket,” said Derek Frey, CCF’s associate producer
and director of all of TD’s rock videos. “On the golden ticket, there
are instructions on how they are to enter the chocolate factory on a
particular date and time. It’s almost like a montage sequence where each
child is in their own environment at home. Mike Teavee is into violent
videogames and wears a shirt picturing a bloodied skull. He’s kind of a
weird techie-punk kid who thinks he knows it all. He has a very
large-screen TV behind him which is supposed to represent what he would
be watching. And the ‘Mr. Quiet’ video fits into the genre of what he
While it may appear that Burton included the
video clip as a favor to Frey, a longtime associate who is also a friend
and benefactor of TD’s, the famed filmmaker says that is definitely not
the case. He says that he was looking for a thrash-metal video to play
while introducing Mike Teavee, the kid who is ultimately shrunk by
“I watched some of the music videos sent from
Warner Brothers,” Burton explained. “None of them fit the bill. Derek
asked me to have a look at the ‘Mr. Quiet’ video. I thought the ending
was perfect for the scene in the film -- quick editing, kind of
horror-campy. The music sounded very heavy metal, which was what I was
looking for. It was impressive. I kind of liked the fact that they're
not recognizable yet and thought this could help them get to the next
TD also gets a music credit at the end of the
movie. Pretty heady stuff for an indie rock band from Hawaii, said
guitarist-vocalist Trever Veilleux.
“Just that alone is exciting and is an honor,”
he mused. “It seems like whenever we do anything, like the ‘Mr. Quiet’
video, people ask, ‘What are you going to do with it?’ That question
doesn’t really cross our minds. The creative process is what inspires us
and what drives us. So whenever anybody asked what we were going to do
with this video, we couldn’t answer them. Then, a year later, it’s in a
major motion picture. Now, what that means for our future -- and I get
asked that a lot -- I have no idea, and it’s not really something that I
spend a lot of energy thinking about.”
Burton, who met TD vocalist-alto saxophonist
RaVani Flood while filming the remake of “Planet of the Apes” on the Big
Island, eventually saw the band play in London, where CCF was filmed and
where TD recorded and played club gigs this spring. Burton was impressed
enough to ask TD to play the CCF London premiere party July 17.
“They just look like these nice people that are
going to perform pleasant songs,” Burton said of TD’s set at Caernavon
Castle, a rock club in London’s Camden section. “Then they rip into an
intense 30-minute set giving it everything. It was all-out rock.
Someone next to me called them (bleeping) demons. I'm pretty sure
that’s a positive comment in the UK.”
Actually, that someone was David Arnold, a
Grammy-winning British film composer and record producer whose film
soundtracks include the last three James Bond movies and whose
production résumé includes Bjork, Aimee Mann, Damien Rice, Pulp, Iggy
Pop, k.d. lang, Chrissie Hynde and Garbage. Arnold was struck by TD’s
“Amongst the funk, rock, soul, folk, punk, jazz
and R&B chaos there is a perverted
sense of genius,” he commented.
Veilleux said that the band will not be
deterred by Thursday’s horrific bus and metro train bombings by
“That’s not something that’s likely to happen
in Hilo, but it could have happened anywhere,” he reflected. “You can’t
let things like that stop you.”
And while TD has an invitation to play the
premiere -- an honor usually reserved for a Warner Bros. act -- they
will have to pay their own way to London. The band is putting on its
fundraising “Chocolate Fantasy Party” tonight at 9 p.m. at Uncle Mikey’s
in the Waiakea Villas. Other bands on the bill are Downstar, Shiva and
Augustine. Tickets are $10 advance at CD Wizard and Rock Island Gallery,
$15 at the door. The night has a chocolate theme. Admission includes a
raffle ticket for a chance to win Tim Burton t-shirts, books, DVDs, and
other movie memorabilia.
“It’s going to be fun performing with three
really good bands that we’ve never played with,” Veilleux said. “We’re
putting a lot more energy into this show than just a regular club gig.
We’re aiming to make it an event.”

We wanted to write and
let you know that the festival screenings in Toronto
at the CN Tower and Canadian Broadcast Centre last weekend went
exceptionally well. "Creep" was a great fit into our "Suspense, Fear
Surprise" series which was very popular with the audience. Both the CBC and
The Maple Leaf Theatre at the CN Tower proved exciting locations for the
festival- we had video screens announcing the festival throughout the Tower,
which looked great. It was a cloudy day Friday, but many filmmakers still
took advantage of the free trip to the top of the CN Tower which was
included with the IFCT festival ticket. Despite the war and protests even
outside some of our venues(!) during some of the festival, we had very
healthy turnouts both days. On Saturday, we reached standing room capacity
in more than a few screenings at the Canadian Broadcast Centre
"Creep" was a part of the International Festival of Cinema and
