Bad Advice For Good Times

News and fodder behind the films of Joseph Nanni.

The Cats of Ulthar Dance Dance

We’ve been in cave-like seclusion scheming and meme-ing for sometime now. In the past year we had our first feature length documentary about the real-life horror of Cancer air on the CBC, we finished principal photography on our web series Fanboy to Farmer, we shot some promos for good old broadcast television, and we’re putting some finishing touches on our next doc about Doctor Robert M Price called the Gospel According to Price. So we thought we’d close out the year with a bit of fun, a little cat video, Bad Advice for Good Times style, with some fun and a bit of WTF. Enjoy:

Life’s not all tentacles and Tsathoggua.  Sometimes you stare into the void and sometimes you give back.  Here’s us using our powers for good in a new PSA for Champions Against Bullying directed by Joseph Nanni.

Stand up.

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.

In The Flesh

With a rough edit complete and a scant-few pick-ups remaining we inch closer and closer to finishing our monsterpiece. But as we move forward I fear something will be left behind. The shoot day played host to many uncredible occurrences but of all the apparitions we captured on film none were so spellbinding as the phenomena know only as ‘Lazarus.’ The artist from up North, Oliphant, took time out from his busy schedule of painting and starring into the woods to visit the big smoke and play his part in our film. Laz had laid his artistic hand to two of our prosthetics and during the process he studied the script. Eager to exorcise his acting demons Laz offered himself up as the human sacrifice to CGI. The cast and crew were charmed by the mysterious Mr. Ioannou so we thought it only appropriate that we share the scene with everyone before his cues and quirks were tracked and transformed into something otherworldly. So here for the first and last time is the scene once spoken only of in secret.
