Past Christmas Classics: SANTA SHAKEDOWN (film stills)
A few years back I was home for the holidays in Maryland and decided to make an “in camera edited” movie with my friends Nick and Geoff. By “in camera” I mean there were no second takes or editing allowed. Anyway, we spent an entire night shooting an epic film about two cops, DuPre and McTannen, attempting to bring down “The Santas”, a cheerful gang that was dealing illegal “cane”.
We shot the film on the worst VHS camera we could find and the three of us play every character in the film. The film ends with an intense cap gun shootout between the cops and the Santas where pretty much everyone dies except for DuPre and Uncle Santa. Fortunately McTannen returns as a half-robot in the sequel, Dirty Bunny. Yes, you read right, there is a sequel and it involves the Easter Bunny.
One day if you are all lucky I will post Santa Shakedown here in it’s entirety.
