Day 244 Operation: Television’s Curtis Andersen Day 1: East of Jesus

Op TVs CA Explosion Opener

Rene and I are here on the Oregon Coast filming East of Jesus and I actually have a free day today which means I can catch up on some of the stuff that you may have missed that I’d like to pimp out.

First off, here is the short I Hate Mondays from the folks over at Fun Size Horror. It’s a bizarre little tale where I’m an obnoxious office manager. I know, I’m really stretching my abilities #sarcasm.

And, my bad, I promised in my last video to post all of the updated playlists so people could catch-up. From the absence of people clamoring for those to be posted I’m probably fine not posting them, but I said I would do it so I’m going to. They are below.

Getting to Know: Rene’s World

IMG_8909

My wife is a pretty wonderful woman. She’s intelligent, witty, well read, wonderful with animals and children, a great actress, and she happens to be a pretty good writer as well!

I’ve been bugging her to blog more, and she’s been making an effort, but I find that nothing motivates me more than when I have a whole bunch of people reading the site and hoping for something new. So today I’m promoting her blog, it’s called:

Rene’s World

In it she talks about all the things that are important to her and you might even find it a bit inspiring.

Give it a look and don’t be afraid to hit the deep archives, there are some pretty cool pictures there.

See you soon!

Adventures in the Pacific Northwest

 

IMG_0149

Rene and I are visiting friends in the Pacific Northwest (or PNW for those in the know. I was not in the know and was very confused. I thought everyone was saying that they were “pwnd.”) We’re collecting footage and images for an episode of “Rene & Curtis Get Lost… In Portland,” but here are a few sneak peaks.

More later when I’m not rushing out of a hotel room.

Fun Size Horror Day 3 – Double Feature Wednesday! Home & Bloody Mary

BM 8Home 3

So much happening today at Fun Size Horror! Today is the big day for Rene and I since the short I wrote and directed, Bloody Mary, is up and the short she stars in, Home, is up as well. Wednesday is Double Feature day, so all of the hosting sites are showing two shorts. We are friends with just about everyone involved int todays posts so I hope you’ll check them all out…

But especially Home and Bloody Mary!

Home is the tale of a crumbling marriage and a fight that leads to the worst kind of homecoming.

Bloody Mary is a bit more personal. When my sister and I were kids I used to get a great deal of joy out of scaring her which, as I’m sure you can imagine, neither she or my parents were all that fond of. The worst thing I ever did was convince her that Bloody Mary lived in our bathroom mirror. This is that story.

Hope you enjoy them! Let me know what you think.

See you soon!

Fun Size Horror Day 2 – Rene & I are in one today!

Rene Persephone Still

Big second day is here and there are six more shorts released! All of them can be seen at Fun Size Horror.com.

Persephone Curtis

However, I’d like to bring special attention to the short Persephone by Lisa J. Dooley. In it Rene and I are terrible rich people. Because it’s a short we’re not in it much, but hopefully a release of the outtakes will be put up somewhere because we had a LOT of fun on this shoot and there was some comedy gold that was, rightly, sent to the cutting room floor.

Go check it out and let me know what you think!

See you soon.

Shameless family promotion time: Rene is in the short When They Say You’re AloneShe is one of the cultists and she’s the one that has the close-up near the end.

Rene Cultist Close-Up

Shameless self promotion time: One of my former students, Aidan Flynn, is in Knock, Knock.

All the shorts that I’m involved with will be out Wednesday, but don’t wait – go check these out now! Each video is only up for 24 hours and then they are gone until after Halloween. Let me know what you think of them!

See you soon!

Fun-Video-Friday

It feels good to be getting back into the writing swing of things. Today’s Fun Video Friday is more shameless promotion about Fun Size Horror (have you liked the Facebook page yet?). Here’s the trailer, which features many of the shorts and you can even glimpse Rene a few times if you’re paying attention *wink*. Next Monday the shorts will be released, five per sponsor per day, for only 24 hours each until Halloween!

fUN-sIZE V9Exciting, right?

New Site, New Projects and The Age of Ultron!

Website Banner

CurtisAndersen.com is officially back up and, although there’s still some tweeking to do, it’s time to post again!

fUN-sIZE V9

The big thing I want to focus on is the launch of Fun Size Horror which is NEXT MONDAY! Not familiar with Fun Size Horror? It’s 31 micro-short horror films playing the week of Halloween done by over a dozen up-and-coming filmmakers, including yours truly. Follow the links to the WEBSITE and FACEBOOK PAGE. It’s been a hell of a thing getting this together this year, but the projects that I’ve seen come through are really good and cover the spectrum of horror sub-genres. Go check things out and look for Bloody Mary on Wednesday October 29th on Shock Till You Drop.

BM 8

The last thing I want to touch on is the new Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer – omfg.

See you next time.

52 in 52 Story 9 I Did Not Eat Your Bagel

The story for this week is truly short. It is a children’s book that I wrote after a conversation that I had with my wife after a conversation we had about food, I think you’ll notice when you read it. I hope to get illustrations to go along with this and then release it, but we’ll see.

Enjoy. 
I Did Not Eat Your Bagel
One day Little Nene’s mommy called little Nene in a huff, “Little Nene where’s my bagel? Did you eat my stuff?”
Little Nene stood up calmly, with Frankie doggy at her side, she cleared her throat and spoke looking mommy in the eye. 
“Oh mommy,” Little Nene said, “I’ve eaten many things, but I did not eat your bagel, to do so would be mean.”
“I’ve made myself some cereal, some eggs and even toast. But I did not eat your bagel, that would hurt your feelings most.”
“I’ve had bacon, I’ve had hash browns, I’ve had all of that it’s true. But I did not eat your bagel, that bagel was for you.”
“I’ll eat chicken, I’ll eat turkey, mashed potatoes or steamed rice. But I did not eat your bagel, that just would not be nice.”
“Chips and salsa, guacamole, tacos and burritos too; but I did not eat your bagel. That’s a thing I’d never do.”
“I might if it were cookies, cake, or a slice of apple pie, but I did not eat your bagel and that is not a lie.”
“So mommy please believe me, I’m a good little kid, I did not eat your bagel, but I can say who did.”
Mommy and Little Nene saw Frankie doggie by his bowl, and in it was the bagel! Frankie doggy ate it whole! 
Silly Frankie!
