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.
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.
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.
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.

Joseph Nanni and Bad Advice For Good Times’ new short film, Black Goat, will be released on July 15 but details on where are still unknown. The film, being described as “haunting” and “visually stunning”, features visual effects by Rubber Pixel and Loki and stars genre veteran Adam Wilson (Manson, Suck, XIII). Supporters of the film will see if first in a private on-line showing through special invitation. The film is the first part in a series of shorts under the same title. A Black Metal inspired one-sheet teaser was released earlier this month.
Bad Advice For Good Times is pleased to announce that two of the country’s top animation houses will be doing character design and effects for the short film/teaser Black Goat: Two Hunters. After an extensive search we were lucky to discover these two exceptional houses whose work speaks for itself. We are also lucky enough to be working with Stealing Time for editing, Alter Ego for compositing and colour transfer, and Silent Joe for sound and music. We are looking to have the project completed by early July and no word yet on where it will premiere . . . but we probably won’t wait for a festival and give fans the opportunity to see it first, here.
