Jonni Nitro

Recommended Posts

This internet series was talked about in Tom's general Filmography thread, but I wanted to pull it up as its own topic. Thanks to James for the link to the series online at:

Tom plays Brack and the film style is similar to Sin City -- waaay before Sin City was even a film concept! I like the looks of the thick, stark black and white and the 'atomic blue' bits.

Thank you again Jen ;)

 

To me it looks a little like what the band "A-ha" did with the 1980's video "Take On Me".

It also looks like something that the MTV show "Liquid Television" would have shown.

 

Does anyone know what happen at the end of Crash And Burn Part 3??? Does it just leave us hanging????

Wow, thanks for sharing those links. I've looked everywhere for those ever since I heard Thomas talk about them on the FatFreeFilm podcast.

 

I can't wait to see them.

 

Thanks again.

edit: I finally got to see the Jonni Nitro flicks and they are cool. The thing that is really cool about them is that they are shot in the Sin City style,and that was done years before that movie ever came out. It shows that someone was clearly ahead of their time when they were planning that. They were really well done and it was fun to watch. Another thing that I found interesting was that Olivia D'Abo played Jonni in the later episodes. I never expected to see her in a project like that (an actioner, I mean) because she always did drama and romantic comedies primarily.

Thanks for the link James. It's so cool that the JN episodes can be accessed online - that they're still there. :)

That was good, real good. It's too bad they didn't make anymore. I really would have liked to have seen more of Tom's character.

 

 

the sad part is - i directed the last two episodes and then the company got shut down and we never did them. i has about two minutes edited together - a kind of Electra character fighting Jonni with two long swords in a parking garage. and some kick ass footage of Jonni riding a motorcycle. still got that footage around here somewhere...

can you see this?nitro9.mov

 

it's a rough cut of the beginning of JN 7. believe me when i say it was the coolest of the series. there was a motorcycle chase, a sword fight with chicks - explosions - the works. but ERUPTOR.COM lost finance and the project folded. mark silvestri of IMAGE fame was writing with me and my current girlfriend - olivia d'abo involved. it was a hot little show for it's day. oh the dial up days ...T

Thank you, Thomas!

 

Not to be a pill, though, but I am having trouble with the attachments / links (can't download / play) ... probably some user error on my part? ... maybe someone can help?

Sure, I'll be happy to talk about how Jonni Nitro was started and some stories about working on the project. It was a ton of fun but like Thomas said, Eruptor ran out of funding due to the Dot Bomb crash and it died out. Here's some photos from the sets, I have several more.
