CHARLOTTE FILMMAKING COUPLE HIT BELOW THE BIBLE BELT WITH THEIR NEW BOOK

0

In the land of faith-based productions, a husband-and-wife team celebrate their dark side

cover

 

CHARLOTTE, NC: Perhaps the most prolific Charlotte-based filmmaker ever, Mark Baranowski announces the official guidebook to the varied assortment of edgy independent movies he created almost single-handedly between 2001 and 2011 – From Despair To Beloved: The Provocative Cinema of On Mark Productions.

Co-authored by Tucson, AZ writer-editor-filmmaker, Scott Kenyon Barker, the book serves as an introduction for those not already familiar with the oft-controversial films of Baranowski and his wife/creative partner, model-actress Ryli Morgan, while providing fans of these same films an in-depth look into their making.

In an effort to provide worthwhile content at odds with the likes of Hollywood, Mark and Ryli knew from the start that their microbudget films had to offer demanding audiences what most of the blockbusters lacked: heart. That, and sometimes excessive blood and bare skin… The result led many to wonder just how much of themselves the couple revealed to the camera, and to question their true motives for movie making: Were they following a dream, or just living out their fantasies?

The answer to this question and many more is revealed in From Despair To Beloved: The Provocative Cinema of On Mark Productions, which also includes an exclusive interview with Mark and Ryli; behind-the-scenes stories and photos; an entire shooting script for Mark’s latest film, Hardly Beloved; poster and video box art; ad mats; production stills and cast recollections.

Look no further than Fred and Shelby Vogel aka Toe Tag Pictures. The best thing to come out of Pittsburgh, Pa., since the legendary Greg Nicotero! What makes them different from maybe your usually vendor/celebrity: One, they have made some of the most interesting and underrated independent films in the past several years and they have done them on their own terms and have redefine how to film, do effects, and promote your own independent films. Two, Fred and Shelby Vogel are two of the nicest and down to earth movie people you may ever meet your entire life and know within three seconds of meeting them their heart is 110% into filmmaking! Three, they carry a good friend, Mario Dominick’s new book. Four, like or dislike their films there is no doubt they have made an impact on independent filmmaking.

Gross Movie Reviews checks out “Movie Outlaw”

 

By Tim Gross

 

Yeah it is crazy to think I read two books in a year let alone in a month. Most likely this hasn’t happened since the days of before my writing on a regular basis that I ordered all of Joe Bob Briggs books together off of Amazon before his “Profoundly Disturbing” books. But when you get great stuff like Mario Dommick’s first effort or Mike Watt’s latest “Movie Outlaw” (which I will discuss) it causes me of all people to put down the latest sequel of Charles Band’s “Puppet Master” or SyFy’s latest mash-up “Sharknado” flick and take notice. Hell, I keep the beer in the fridge and bust out some coffee not the instant shit just so I can feel smart, educated, or refine to read such material. If that wasn’t enough I even stop listening to the voices in my head to rewatch the “Swamp Thing TV series” DVDs that sit eye level with me every time I am at the computer and that takes guts folks… You just don’t understand how tough it is?

 

But anyway enough of that random shit about my weird ass I am here to talk and review Mike Watt’s latest effort “Movie Outlaw”. Mr. Watt has always written for several magazines, websites, movie scripts, etc., etc., etc. The dude has gotten around and rightful so as he is a talented fellow. But the last couple of years Mike’s career is proof with age comes wisdom and greatness apparently as he is hitting a stride like no other I know of. Between his flick “Razor Days” and his last book “Fervid Filmmaking” Watt has had me excited to read or see what’s next and he does not disappoint with his book “Movie Outlaw”. Now you might say or know it took me a couple months to literally find myself sitting down and reading this but hopefully my introduction to this review explains a little about me. Some are addicted to drugs, alcohol, porn; I am addicted to horror flicks so it’s hard to pay attention to anything else. With saying that Mike’s book is an amazing trip through the unknown, weird, and just rare films that you may be interested in but never watched or films you know and seen on certain celebrities IMDB pages and asked yourself if that flick even exists?

 

Mr. Watt does an amazing job of not only explaining the film and its origins but talks about what went into the film, where it went, and why most of them were never successful or haven’t been released in the latest Hi-Def format. He writes about films like: The Dark Backward, Dust Up (which I recently purchased just for the mere reason after reading about it in the book it perked my weirdness of checking it out), Escape From Tomorrow, I Bought A Vampire Motorcycle (a personal favorite of mine), Killer Tongue, The Odd Job, The Spirit (two different versions) just to name a few. He dissects them, analyzes them, and brings to light what worked, what didn’t, and what it could have been. Or in my case it was like watching Joe Bob’s Briggs Monstervision days where he decided he was going to discuss a young Robert Patrick in “Future Hunters” for five minutes before the next commercial break. I enjoy how Mike breaks down the film good or bad he makes it interesting and how the book flows you do not have to read from beginning to end, you can start in the middle or at end. The structure allows weird film geeks like me to choose where to go next or what to discover next I should say. As like his “Fervid Filmmaking” the book gets your inner film nerd excited to know about some flicks most haven’t even thought of. It is a journey my friend but what makes it even a little different or more interesting is Mike invited some contributing writers to give their take on the same film he just dissected and gives you a whole different view of what Mike may have just written.

 

In closing, anybody including myself can sit there and write reviews. Tell the reader the flick sucks balls or is the greatest thing since Rutger Hauer played a blind man with a samurai sword. But Mr. Watt separates himself from the crowd, the bloggers, the vloggers, the journalists, the whatevers to make you take notice and discover the beautiful, the odd, and possibly and truly bizarre works of art we call film that you may have never known about and for that I am thankful! I give the book “Movie Outlaw” 4 out of 4 stars.
