Tales in Estes Park “truly memorable”

20150502_011344_talesfrompalesff2015

At the Historic Park Theatre in downtown Estes Park amid gloomy rainy weather, “Tale from Beyond the Pale: Parlor Tricks” was presented early Friday evening.

This audio drama in two parts complete with foleys performing manual sounds to combine with electronic music and effects, was an inventive journey back to the days of radio plays. The first part, “Cold Reading” was set in 1925 and the conclusion, “No Signal,” nearly 100 years later (present day). Snappy dialogue, a chilling premise, and talented actors led by Larry Fessenden of Glass Eye Pix made for a truly memorable experience.

While the audience was invited to sit back and close their eyes to experience the audio play, it was more interesting to watch the foleys perform with various ingredients and props. Noises created by watermelon flesh, cabbage heads, and inflated balloons were extremely effective.

TALES enthusiast: You Must See It! You Must!

When asked why he does movies, radio plays, puppet shows, and stop motion animated films with titles like SANTA CLAWS, Fessenden had a simple (and sincere) reply; “Because I am an entertainer…I have to.” Much respect to this amazing talent.

It should also be noted that Glenn McQuaid is quite a generous (and talented) individual too! He brings his special love of paperback and vintage horror fiction to new life by way of these lovely radio plays.

I give this event and these two gentleman my highest recommendation. In fact, thank God that they do the things they do. I swear, it makes the world, or at least the horror world, a better place. This piece doesn’t begin to touch the brilliance and liveliness that is “Tales From Beyond the Pale” and the performers who are behind it. Look it up! You must see it! You must!

Oscilloscope Acquires ‘Body’!

Bloody Disgusting just got the scoop that Oscilloscope acquired the US rights to Body, starring Helen Rogers (V/H/S), Alexandra Turshen (The Maladjusted) and Lauren Molina (Martha Marcy May Marlene), featuring Fessenden. Body is directed by Robert Olsen and Dan Berk, who also wrote and produced.

From the BD News Piece:

We had two positive reviews out of Slamdance, with Patrick Cooper calling it “a morbidly satisfying thriller” and Jess Hicks stating that it “isn’t your normal girl’s night out“.

Body is the story of three girls that break into a mansion and inadvertently kill the groundskeeper. They slowly self-destruct as they decide what to do with the dead body in the living room.”

Our Man In Brussels: Peter Phok talks film finance

screen daily

Screen Daily recaps Frontiers Market with quotes from producer Peter Phok (The Roost, Beneath, Sacrement, In a Valley of Violence, etc) From the article:

Having worked with Ti West, Glass Eye Pix’s Peter Phok brought up the DIY approach to film-making and just going out there and shooting without finance necessarily in place, adding that it’s increasingly become about “taking advantage of what you have” with the lack of film funds available in the US.

“A lot of films are put together mainly through equity and now all the states have a tax credit incentive, so we’ll get a script and as much as it’s about shooting where makes sense, you have to look at those incentives and start to build your budget around those,” explained Phok.

“It’s not a privilege to be a film-maker; it’s something that if you want to do, you do it. Even when I did make money at the start of my career, it wasn’t very much. You invest in yourself and you work with what you have.”
