What began as an exploration of my love of weird western stuff has evolved into a discussion of creativity and the professional market for creative undertakings, with a lot of little side trips into the worlds of wrestling, polka, horseback riding, rattlesnake chili, and whatever else attracts our attention at the moment. Cohosted by Coco Mault.
I made whiskey based on frontier and Wild West recipes that called for tobacco, leather, and hot peppers. As well as gunpowder and a rattlesnake head. This is the story of making and drinking what seemed like potentially poisonous thing I have ever ingested.
In this saga of regret and redemption, Johnny West (a Marx toy) defends his town from marauding banditos but must deal with the consequences of his choices against the backdrop of a desolate, unforgiving landscape. Using low tech effects and found object puppetry, this short film explores the epic western genre on a diminutive scale. AKA - A five minute western we shot on the floor of my condo. Hope you like it!
