(un)Stall(ed)

For people who have been around for 3+ years, you may recall me mentioning something about a movie Christian Lesperance and I did called Stall.

Stall is a short comedy written & directed by Christian about a guy stuck in a bathroom stall. I produced it. We shot in the summer of 2005, but the editing process had a complete breakdown. There was an initial rough cut that we could chomp on. But our footage then traveled across the country to Los Angeles where it was more or less stolen for 8 months. Eventually we got the footage back… but had moved on to other projects. Stall was stalled.

Almost a year ago I re-acquired the hard drive from Christian that had all of our material on it and decided to take matters into my own hands. I’ll finish the edit myself. I hated having this incomplete movie over my head. Christian had all but divorced himself from the project. (He wants an Alan Smithee credit.) So it was up to me. I didn’t want to let it die.

Amped up, I went in to edit the thing and discovered- the drive had been corrupted! I wasn’t able to continue the work we had finished up to that point. And faced with the prospect of starting completely over from our source tapes… I procrastinated.

When we started doing “Teachers” this past May, Stall came up again and I had new enthusiasm. I was determined to finish it this time. Just a few days ago I managed to get Stall back online and began cutting and trimming what will become the finished movie.

In honor of this momentous occasion I give you two teaser trailers to feast your eyes and bellies on and a promise that a completed movie will be posted soon.

    I think “Stall” is your “Chinese Democracy”
