LOL!


Roberto Escobar...

He always reminded me of a very old looking Maurizio Merli.

Getting up there. I'd say border line sixties.

The character stay's as clean as he possibly can. He's incredibly vain.

i like it  O0

i used to have a similar character in an SW story i was coming up with. He was also named pretty boy, but he was named so for being the only character who didn't have horribly decayed teeth.

Does your pretty boy have a personal mirror to constantly look at himself?

no, he was a charismatic theif who had earned an undeserved reputation as a robin hood type character. he was also an informant to a mexican outlaw named Gordo (im considering changing it to Sopie). he's just a minor character the hero kills in the first scene.

Unfortunatly, I wasn't creative enough to come up with it myself.

It's actually the title of a real SW starring Craig Hill and the forever enjoyable Fernando Sancho.

My original title was Six reasons why but would you believe somebody on youtube made a faux trailer with the same name!?


After that I got frustrated and just ripped the name of the SW. It's a great title. The movie isn't so great...

edit: I'd like to see a script. How long is it?
never made a script, it was intended as a children's book i had to make in english ( oh the irony!). Unfortunatley the book needed to be a magical realist story so i had to add a bunch of "magical" stuff (don't ask what it was, just know it was incredibly stupid) I started writing it and realized that i wrote about 7 pages that would have amounted to 2 minutes of film (if it were filmed). I realized that what i was righting was a novel so i had to scrap it and ended up writing a dystopian story instead.

I did however film a SW adaptation of Antigone. I filmed it with my mothers camera that she has had since i was 3, and i didn't even have a tripod (so it was shakey cam galore). The closest thing to a desert i could find was a baseball feild. I thought i made a pretty passable duel (if your willing to overlook the glaring technical screw ups) but due to schedule conflicts we had to film all the dialouge in 2 hours and learned the lines about 10 minutes before we began shooting, so all the dialouge parts were crap.

Right now im considering making a samurai film, but i really don't have a good knowledge of samurai cinema so it's really a Spag in Samurai's clothing. I told the some freinds the plot of it and they really liked it but i question their judgement on plots considering they're anime freaks. I don't have any costumes, props or locations so i think ill try making a prototype of it and see where ill go from there

but now that im remembering my old SW story im thinking of rehashing it

Most of the spag genre is the other way around.

Put the baseball duel on youtube.

ill have to find the flashdrive i had it on but im pretty sure its some where on this computer i just gotta find it. You'll probably laugh watching it ( i know i did and practically everyone who watched it). it's hard to take it seriously when the one of the gunslingers is a girl with a mustache drawn on with a sharpie, not to mention all the other stupid things in it.

Sorry, misunderstood.

Usually when I'm nearing the end of filming a movie I dislike everything I've done. Then when I watch it from beginning to end I feel proud.

I could answer this for him. 

No... not YET  ;) but he will be showing it in a Miami Beach Cinematech. This is the same place where Firearm had its first debut and also where he hosted the Spaghetti Western month film festival featuring screenings of four of Leone's films.

nah... if anything, it would be the other way around. It is a part of a portfolio, and I'd advise FC not to show his "portfolio" to anyone yet.  At least the only people he should be showing it to would be anyone who could help finance his next film.

I'd have to send you a dvd copy.
I never put the link up in the first place (ask Silenzio for it) and I don't know how to get there.
I wouldn't recommend seeing it through that download though, it looked bad.
All attempts to put it up on youtube have been doomed to failure.
