Bad Advice For Good Times

News and fodder behind the films of Joseph Nanni.

HAVE YOU HEARD THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL?

Time to bear witness, believers. You have not watched enough documentaries and that, my friends, is a sin. But we have good news for you, the good news of Price, Doctor Robert M Price. The good Doctor has had many lives but as of today he stands with two PHDs, a love of HP Lovecraft, an advocate of the modern myths of Marvel and DC, a avid reader of the bible, but, curiously, not a believer. What? How’s this? All shall be revealed in the new documentary from the folks who brought you Elder Sign and The Necronomicon. Coming next year, this doc on the doc will delight atheists and agnostics and terrify the holy at heart. So step forward… and justify!

Black Goat Besieged By Indonesian Pirates

When our new short film popped up a few weeks back its enigmatic content was the source of much speculation.  Some people thought it was a teaser for a feature, some thought it was a new Slipknot video (we weren’t at all opposed to this interpretation), and some thought it was a scene from an existing film.  We were getting hundreds of hits a day so we really didn’t care what people thought.  And then some bullshit happened.  Eager to dupe the public someone started sharing a work print of a feature length film under the name Black Goat.  Not only that, they used our poster for their film.  On top of that they used images of Adam Wilson as screen grabs from their film.  And the piste de résistance . . . they used our short as the trailer for their film, and our synopsis too.  We can’t imagine what people were thinking when they pressed play on the illegal download.  The “work” is in no way related to what we are doing.  The film that is out there trading under our banner is, well, let’s just say, not really our thing and now this completely random piece of work is dragging us down on IMDB and discussion boards.  We are not amused.  So if you have a second please  head over to our IMDB page HERE and give us a vote or help set things straight on the boards.  Thanks.

Black Goat To Open For Troll Hunter

If you haven’t seen Black Goat on the big screen then you haven’t seen Black Goat.  If you haven’t seem Troll Hunter then you should.  Why not kill two birds with one stone and see Black Goat before you see Troll Hunter at the Dark Bridges Film Festival in sunny Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, on Friday, September 29, at 7PM.  Troll Hunter is from Norway and Black Goat is heavily influenced by their grim and frostbitten kingdoms.  It’s sure to be a great night out for you and the wife.

Guillermo Del Toro To Pass Judgement On Black Goat

As is if making insider films in a sub, sub genre of horror and science fiction, loosely based on the writings of a relatively unknown misanthropic pulp writer from the 20′s/30′s wasn’t hard enough, now we find out that a giant of the horror genre, and arguably one of the best filmmakers of the 21st century, will be judging said films.  Guillermo Del Toro will be judging the short films at this years’ HP Lovecraft Film Festival in Los Angeles, Friday, September 16 and Saturday, September 17, at the Warner Grand in San Pedro.  This will also be the world festival premiere of Black Goat, so you may want to see it here before all the nerds start asking, “why does a coureur de bois have a viking axe?”*

*  We’ll be happy to explain why when some gives us a bucket of money to make the feature.

Be Cool, Black Goat is Coming

The hotly anticipated new chiller from Bad Advice for Good Times and Joseph Nanni was due out five days ago.  But after several viewings we decided it needed to be 10% awesomer.  The film we be available to our YouTube channel subscribers first and then begin a festival run in early September – it was shot in 2K, 2:35 so you will want to see this on the big screen.  In the meantime, please enjoy our other films or read a book – may we recommend The Great God Pan by Arthur Machen.

See Black Goat Before The Herd

Subscribers to Joseph Nanni’s Youtube channel Bad Advice For Good Times will see the new short film Black Goat weeks before it is released to the public.  The film is currently in the final stages of post production and will be screened at a handful of festivals this fall.  But anyone who hits “subscribe” between now and June 30 will not only be among the first to see the short but will also have access to exclusive character designs and a limited edition comic based the expanded story.  Good times.

What are you doing July 21?

How’s about going to see the Necronomicon at Fantasia, arguably the best genre festival in North American.  Fantasia is a whopping 21 days featuring the best, and I mean the best, features and shorts from Quebec and across the globe, not to mention a diverse, world-class, jury.  There’s even a panel dedicated to adapting H.P. Lovecraft to screen with none other than Stuart Gordon and Dennis Paoli.  Check it out HERE.  And free T-shirts for everyone that stands and cheers for my short.*†

*Must be standing AND cheering to qualify.

†Offer not valid if I don’t see you do it.
