While the homie Hilton Carter has been gearing up to shoot his next picture “One Last Run,” he decided he’d keep busy by shooting a short film. That film is VICTOR and you can watch it right now! It’s the story of a struggling comedian as he fights writers block while staying at a hotel in between gigs. As he’s the easily distracted type, Victor finds himself sidetracked by everything from some time with the ladies to getting high with a suicidal cat (which I voiced BTW).
Artwork by Hilton Carter for his upcoming film, One Last Run
The above image is for an upcoming short film called One Last Run which will commence shooting in November. It’s being directed by my good friend Hilton Carter who you’ve most likely read about here a number of times. the film started as a story that was told to me by a friend of a friend and I thought it just HAD to be at least a short film. I told it to Hilton who at the time was focused on a more dark aesthetic (see Moth). Being that I’m kind of stubborn I did a draft of the script and gave it to Hilton. After spending some time with it, he came around to wanting to make it happen. He’s since added to what I’ve written and each subsequent draft that he’s done has really upped the ante as far as drama and depth. To say I’m really excited to see this thing come to fruition is an understatement.
As you probably know, tomorrow there is a HUGE event. There will be a screening of Hilton Carter’s excellent short film “Moth” at Landmark theater in Baltimore’s Harbor East. Catch it on the big screen before it starts popping up on HBO and see it how it’s meant to be seen.
Today Hilton was featured with an interview in The B Weekly Paper and “Moth” was also written about. Both articles are by the thoughtful and insightful Brandon Soderberg and the interview gives you a little look into Hilton’s artistic process. It’s pretty f*ckin’ cool if you ask me.
