Project: Invisible Violence

As part of the 2020 Queer|Art|Mentorship based in New York City, Brian Gonzalez is creating a video experience inspired by the supernatural world of his upcoming feature film, “Those Who Didn't Run”, set in 1941 on a farm along the Texas/Mexico border. This mood is illustrated as an ongoing visual study called “Invisible Violence” that becomes a kind of visual requiem for the Mexican farmworkers who were burned alive or wounded in the routine gasoline baths at the Mexican border nearly a century ago. Coupled with audio recordings from the “I’m An American” radio show of the 1930s and 1940s that glorified American citizenship, will be ghostly images of Braceros tumbling through billows of smoke in slow motion resembling their kerosene shower, along with starkly intimate portraits of Texas Black Vultures creating a fragile tension of life and death that illuminates the human myths that drive us toward catastrophic ends.

Project: Roads Diverged

The project is a student lead and student organized production that is part of the Loyola University New Orleans film coursework. We have a small group of students working to create a short film (relatively 10 minutes long) that was written by our lead director. We have 3 roles currently open in the project that we are seeking talent for.

“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both” (Robert Frost). Who decides the road on which you travel? Does the road dictate the traveler or does the traveler decide his/her road? Roads Diverged is about the illusion of safety associated with familiarity. How you always have the freedom to choose your future no matter what other people’s expectations are. Similarly, it tackles a tale as old as time, about how the notion of familiarity can distort one’s perception and hinders our ability to act outside the walls of our ego.

The story consists of a short interaction between two strangers from different walks of life. Sarah, a young newly minted woman in society trying to figure out her future by overcoming her parent’s expectations. Charles, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, tries to come to grips with the mortality of his existence and the errors of his past actions. Through a deepening conversation that takes place on a pond-side bench, they are able to help each other by granting one another a different outlook on life.

Project: Tavern Brawl Pilot

What is Tavern Brawl?

Tavern Brawl is an upcoming live-action medieval fantasy series. While most other fantasy shows focus on the valiant knights and the brave adventurers, Tavern Brawl turns those tropes on their heads by focusing on the people stuck cleaning up their messes. Tavern Brawl is created by James Murray V and John Shaw, who’s Kickstarter was successfully funded in 48hrs in March of 2020. Tavern Brawl is an episodic drama/comedy following Oscar, a tavernkeep, and his sister Aella, as they struggle to keep up the Tavern left to them by their mother. Through ups and downs, Aella and Oscar struggle to maintain a united front against all manner of problems, grievances, and even magic.

When/Where will this be filmed?

Although its hard to say for certain due to COVID-19, we anticipate filming April 2021 and are looking for people with general availability during that time. We are willing to accommodate most schedules! The Tavern Brawl pilot will be filmed entirely in the beautiful Pacific Northwest (Salem, Oregon).

What roles are you casting?

During our first round of auditions, we are casting our 3 lead (Oscar, Aella, Kira) and 3 supporting roles (Gladwind, Baldwin, Ashe).

Our story follows the owners of The Wayfarers Rest Tavern, Oscar, and Aella. After inheriting the tavern from their parents, they struggle to keep the family business afloat. In addition to adventurers constantly wrecking their tavern, the newly appointed Lord of Mulbury has instated a "Brawl Tax". With rumors of slavers keeping travelers off the roads, Oscar and Aella lose money every night as the lord's purse gets heavier. Though the problems Oscar and Aella face seem dire, tales of the Wayfarers comfort them in their darkest times.

While most fantasy stories focus on the valiant knights and brave heroes, Tavern Brawl is a new kind of story that brings the often ignored background characters to the forefront. Through unusual characters, sophisticated worldbuilding, and innovative storytelling, Tavern Brawl takes classic fantasy tropes and turns them on their heads.

Project: Milk Man

Shoot Dates: specifics TBD, planning for January/February 2021

Budget: $25,000

General: The scripted story is tight, however, we will be working with a very loose style of filmmaking, so the dialogue is not. We will be working with improvisation and real-life situations and are looking for actors who are passionate about film and excited about creating something raw and inspired.

COVID-19 Precautions: The script was written and storyboarded in such a low-budget and stripped-down fashion that scenes require minimal equipment, crew, and people in the frame. Many locations will be outdoors as well. The absolute maximum number of people on set is capped at 15, and there are very few scenes that will require more than ten. Everyone on set, besides actors (who are actively on camera) will be required to wear face coverings, frequently sanitize hands and equipment, and submit a negative COVID test result before shooting begins. The health of cast and crew is paramount and we are willing to comply with new regulations.

Director's Statement: I am heavily inspired by many things, but right now, hitting me the hardest is my love for the Dogme 95 philosophy of filmmaking. While I will not be following the "Vows of Chastity" verbatim as there will be special FX and artificial lighting during production, I am very interested in these films' spontaneity and audacious nature. I have always wondered: "Why has no one ever used this stripped-down, naturalistic, raw, and heavy-hitting form of filmmaking for a crime thriller, something it seems so perfect for?" So, I'm going to do just that. The script revolves around a chase essentially, for money and for life. However, at the heart of it, I see, or what I want people to come away thinking about, is: a character's desire to assert his sexuality, form a better life for himself, live for kicks, but always just missing the right ways to grasp it, letting these opportunities just slip. In other words, "intense want, but immense incapability." I see this film as a collegiate, New Orleans-set Good Time crossed with an Altman-esque performance style, The French Connection's documentary aesthetic, and The Celebration's handheld, lively camera. I want to make this film in the same vein that punk rock artists make music, and I, equally, like the audience to experience the passionate and daring nature within this film's story.

LOG-LINE: A sexually curious misfit's life at college spirals out of control when a botched drug deal leaves him running from the grasp of a ruthless Neo-Nazi gang.
