Mud Whistle

Mud Whistle (1/8)



  1. Sorry JW, no lobsters were harmed in the making of PWZ... sg,asc
  2. Thank you. Sorry about the delay. I've spent the last two months adjusting the look of the film and home video versions. It is now colored (and darkened) the way Lexi and I had originally intended. Hope you all have an exciting time watching the film. This has been a incredible time for me. I wish to thank Lexi for giving me this opportunity. sg,asc
  3. Holy smokes, I go away and shoot some kids stuff for Disney, and the whole world is a different color when I return. Again I appear here to dispel rumors. Please believe: Lexi is not off the film Lexi is still involved in the edit process The film is not (nor could it ever be) PG-13 Today I saw a cut that ran 91 minutes Lexi did in fact get married Lexi is an incredibly talented director, and this film kicks major ass, as will be proven when it is released IN THEATRES DECEMBER 5th The film is most certainly not all exploding heads, but will reveal a great deal of Franks personna and pain This film has been difficult from the begining, from a bitter Canadian winter, to endless nights, to rampant sickness, Lexi has fought to make a killer Punisher film for fans and non fans alike. Initially we were to release in September, but for whatever reason (not the quality of the film or edit IMHO) it was decided to release in December. That extra time has given everyone a chance to put their two cents worth in, but rest assured, Lexi is still stearing the boat, and she is a great captain. When I hear vicious unfounded troll rumors like the "film was unwatchable" or "a total mess" it makes my blood boil. I want to punish the corrupt. People sit on their fat asses trolling the internet, people that have never even looked through a motion picture camera, and make judgements on a work of art that they've never seen, it's like saying a baby will be ugly before it is born, I can't freaking wait for this film to come out and prove the nay-sayers wrong. Sorry for the rant, I just love something wonderful you have yet to see- sg,asc
  4. Ha! That's just silly, why I know nothing of Aliens and Pods, and Studio Execs, and....oh crap...wait, I'm getting a transmission from the Mothership....
  5. That was not in the script we shot. There is, however, lots of killing....lots! sg,asc
  6. I'm right here: www.stevegainer.com And very often in Austin. When I'm not shooting a film (now over thirty of them) I'm shooting music videos (well over 300 now) I tend to shoot a lot in the south. I have been employed alot in the last five years by some great country music stars to shoot their vids. Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flats, Garth Brooks, Allison Krause, to name a few. When I'm not in LA, I like to hang around Nashville and do stupid shit like metal detect for civil war relics. I know, what a dork, eh? Haven't done quite as much of that since the kids came along though. It's like herding cats around here....
  7. Hi Fred, and thanks, I'm glad to be here. I just felt the thing that was pissing everyone off was the lack of accurate information. Whether you love or hate PWZ, mis information is the enemy. I of course have to be extremely careful to not reveal any top secret info, as I'd really like to keep working, and shit like that can ruin a career in a heartbeat. I'm really amazed how the Punisher character affects people. Ray came to my house for drinks (actually a few too many for me) a couple of weeks ago, and since then, my three year old has been running around the house with a squirt gun yelling "I'm the Punisher!" and then squirting ME I didn't even know I was corrupt........ As for TL's film, I am always eager to help other film makers with whatever I have to give. You guys should send me a wish list of things (cinematography related) and I'll check my resources to see if I can help. sg,asc
  8. Hey bro, what about me, I'm afraid Mike V might bring that scary fucking axe in his pic and fuck me up for all the yellow.......lol!!! Good night all, I got two babies that had me up at 5:00 am and it's now 2:40 am, I'm too old for this shit.... Thanks to you all for allowing me to post here- sg,asc
  9. Easy Tim, We don't need to know everything about you.........yikes!!! sg,asc
  10. Hee hee, I'm in. Make it a motel, I'm from Alabama......
  11. Okay, but make it $2000.00. Let's get him some more financing for his film, eh???
  12. Yeah, that is just an exaggeration(sp?) of the real color of sodium lighting. Nasty shit. I wish we still had tungsten lighting in our streets. It is however important to be green, so they had to go. I do hope you like green though? Hee hee!!!!
  13. What the fuck, the more the merrier, eh?? sg,asc BTW: I own several cameras, pm me....
  14. Actually, in the beginning, I took frames from the MAX series, (the only one I really had read before getting the film) and digitally put photos I had taken of Ray in them. Lexi came to my studio, and was explaining to me her vision of the film, and my heart started to beat out of my chest. She essentially wanted to see the MAX comic brought to life. I showed her the frames I'd created, and she said "you get it". I almost died right there. Believe me, there were lots of nay sayers that didn't think I could shoot this film. But Lexi believed. Gale believed. The president of Lions Gate believed. I shot the mother fucker. Now many believe. Funny huh? I think a bit too much has been made of the color, It won't take you out of the film. You will notice, if you watch closely, my nod to Tim in as much as there is plenty of toplight, with dark eye sockets, in shots of Frank. I did study Tim's work, (I'd be a fool not to) but in the end, we chose to go with the interior, rather than the cover look. Frankly, Conrad Hall, Jr. did a great job of covering that look in the '04 film, and like I said to Thomas, there was no reason to duplicate that in our film. sg,asc
