Beifuss on Brewer

Meaty story on Craig Brewer by the CA's John Beifuss, including slide show.

Friday, February 23, 2007

Craig Brewer presents ...

"I was telling friends of mine earlier that I wish I could go back in time to -- there was this place, this bar called The Last Place on Earth ... and me and my friend Mike McCarthy used to shoot movies and we'd project them up on these dirty sheets with bad projectors that we'd have to get for a couple of six-packs. And then the Subteens would play afterwards and the sound sucked and the picture was weak but it was like you were watching rock and roll. I've felt like I always wanted to bring this movie back to that time."
--Craig Brewer, Feb. 22, 2007 at the Memphis premiere of "Black Snake Moan"


Rusted Sun Films, the Memphis production company who brought you
Divine Manipulation of the Threads, Cowboy's Silver Lining and The
Visitor, is proud to announce their next motion picture production,
Soul Mates, written by Ken Axmaker, Jr. Axmaker has written such films
as the award winning, Man-tute, A Waste of 02, the cult classic
Service With a Smile and most recently Bad People. Soul Mates is a
story of a young boy lost in a big world. He finds what we are all
looking for, his Soul Mate. A touching film that promises not to leave
a dry eye.


Life can be rough. Especially when you are 10 years old and all alone
in the world. You long for something or someone who completes your
life. Someone to end the loneliness and disappointment of everyday
existence. You long for your Soul Mate. Some people are born with
silver spoons, and some are born with all the cards against them. Some
lucky people might meet their Soul Mate early in life, and others
might not ever. To the lucky few who meet their Soul Mates, cherish
every moment no matter how short it may be.

We are currently in pre-production and would like to announce a
casting call for:

Approx. 10 year old white female

Selections from the 2006 Rural Route Film Festival
The Rural Route Film Festival was created to highlight works that deal with rural people and places. The festival, which showcases rural themes in an urban environment, features award-winning narrative, documentary, and experimental films as well as music videos. Based in New York City, the most urban of environments, the festival brings an alternative to the box office action flick so often set in New York or Los Angeles. We give city folks a chance to see what’s going on in the rest of the world, and bring a sense of home to country folk that have relocated to the city. We are also programming more and more international work, including films in this year’s festival from England, Siberia, Canada, Portugal, India, and Germany.

Support Delta Axis – become a member!
Members receive free admission to our monthly Artist Studio Visit, a free ticket to a screening at the 10th annual Indie Memphis Film Festival in 2007, and invitations to special parties and events. Membership is $50 for individuals and $75 for couples. For more information call 901.494.6543 or email

The 38th Nashville Film Festival (NaFF) is set to take over Music City for eight artful and entertaining days April 19-26 at Regal Green Hills Cinema. MY SECRET RECORD or How I Learned to Stop Worrying & Love the Biz, a documentary focused on singer-songwriter and international recording star Rob Thomas, will open the festival, with Thomas, his wife Marisol Thomas and director Gillian Grisman attending the screening.

Films will once again be screened in four state-of-the-art theaters at the Regal Green Hills Cinema. Events connected to the festival, including the opening night party atop BMI’s Nashville headquarters, will spread out around the city.

“Each year, Nashville Film Festival’s role in the local, national and international film communities and place among the top film showcases in the world is further established,” says Brian Gordon, NaFF Artistic Director. “Our artistic integrity has always been our top priority, and this year makes it clear that we can attract excellent films of all kinds that offer great quality, appeal and discussion, drawing filmgoers to a one-of-a-kind experience in Nashville.”

MY SECRET RECORD or How I Learned to Stop Worrying & Love the Biz traces the creative process and aggressive marketing campaign of Rob Thomas’s Billboard history making solo debut, Something to Be. Featuring a cast of superstars and CEOs, we are given extraordinary access into the world that manufactures rock stars and hits for mass consumption. The film features an incredible cast of musicians and industry “A” listers including: Carlos Santana, Alicia Keys, John Mayer, Jeff Trott, Robert Randolph, Clive Davis, Lyor Cohen and Matt Serletic.

At release time, other highlights of this year’s festival include the Irish film SMALL ENGINE REPAIR, which tells the heartfelt tale of four men – one of whom is an aspiring country singer – who hang around an engine repair shop in a small Northern Ireland country town. The film’s soundtrack includes contributions from Bobby Bare, Jr., John Prine, Todd Snider and the Silver Jews. Director Niall Heery will attend the screening. The documentary I AM AN AMERICAN SOLDIER, by director John Laurence, covers the highs and lows of a year in the life of one battalion from Ft. Campbell, Kentucky as it trains for and is then deployed to Iraq. Laurence and several Ft. Campbell soldiers will attend.


Among its many cinematic offerings are Saturday and Sunday morning films especially for kids, sponsored by Nashville Parent and Target. This year, the popular ANIMAL BAND takes its “Imagination Dance” show to the big screen for a unique cinema experience that will captivate children ages 3 and up as well as parents.

"We were thrilled when the Animal Band’s Jim Moore approached us about supporting the Festival,” says Sallie Mayne, NaFF Executive Director. "His incredible enthusiasm and positive message makes KidCinema even more of a HAPPENING not to be missed!"


Tickets go on sale online March 19, 2007, including the ALL-FESTIVAL LAMINATE (good for all films, panels/workshops, opening and closing galas and the awards reception), tickets to individual films, workshops and panels, as well as ten-pack and three-day passes. Popular films sell out. To avoid disappointment, we strongly suggest you buy your tickets in advance online at, or at the NaFF Box Office, which opens onsite at the Regal Green Hills lower level on Wednesday, April 18 from 1 p.m. – 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at any time March 19 – April 26, and will be held at Will Call at the NaFF Box Office. No refunds, exchanges, or substitutions. All ticket sales are final.

Romance is in the air

Corduroy Wednesday has quite the Valentine's Day gift for you. This WEDNESDAY February 14th, we will premiere our latest project on the internet!

In the spirit of the holiday, it's a romantic 2 minute trailer for the SXSW Film Festival Grindhouse Trailer Competition.

Directors Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez are releasing a film called "Grindhouse" It's actually two movies packed within one in the spirit of the old bloody sexploitation films of the 70s. Within the film itself, trailers for "fake" grindhouse films will play that are directed by special guest celebrities (Eli Roth, Rob Zombie, etc).

And a contest was created for the general public to create their own Grindhouse trailers, with the best being showcased at this year's South By Southwest Film Festival by Robert Rodriguez himself.

So our entry will be our gift to you on this loved filled holiday.

To whet your appetite check out the official Grindhouse trailer:

Works of Heart Saturday

The Memphis Child Advocacy Center serves young victims of sexual and severe physical abuse through prevention, education, and intervention.

You can help.

And, yes, it involves giving MCAC money, but you get some terrific art in return. The nonprofit's annual Works of Heart auction offers more than 100 works of art by local artists that you can bid on. There have been some amazing pieces over the last 15 years.

Maritza Davila, who is my wife and a professor at Memphis College of Art, and I collaborated on a piece in the show. She did all the hard work and I wrote some haiku that's part of the artwork. But you don't have to bid on ours ... just go and look at the great offerings.

It's Saturday night and all the info is here.

See ya there.

'What Goes Around ...' next Tuesday

On Tuesday, February 13th at Malco's Studio on the Square theatre in Midtown, we will be having two special Valentine Screenings of the independent film "What Goes Around..." One at 7:15pm and the other at 9:30pm.

Reality show for the outrageous: That you?

Producers of a reality show in development are looking for people (18 years+) with extreme views, extreme lifestyles and everything in between for a chance to win big bucks.

Read the following and if you fit the description, email the address below. Don't wait around -- auditions will be held quickly.

Do you have strong opinions and are not afraid to stand up for your beliefs? Are you falsely judged by your appearance? Do others find you too conservative or too liberal? Are you an amazing judge of character?

The International Emmy Award-winning WITHOUT PREJUDICE? is being produced for the North American audience. One of the most provocative shows to hit the air anywhere, WITHOUT PREJUDICE? features a panel of ordinary people who are given the chance to improve the course of someone's life by awarding one of five contestants a large sum of money. Contestants vie for the money by opening up their lives for examination by the panel.

The show, from the producers of The Weakest Link, is described in press materials this way:

The 5 people hoping to be given the money do not have to answer any quiz questions, eat any disgusting vile foods, race around the world, live in house with degenerates or jump out of a plane to prove themselves worthy. Instead, the panel of 5 will determine who gets the cash simply by hearing information about each contestant's life and deciding who they like the most.

They will hear all about each contestants beliefs, family status, salary and occupation….they will also be shown photographs and interview the hopefuls which will all go towards building a case for each contestant to win the money.

However, there will be no sob-stories – this isn't about being the most deserving.

Instead, it's about the panel themselves and how they reveal their prejudices through their judgments.

Would the panel rather give the cash to a man or a woman? To a Jehovah's Witness or an agnostic? To a gay person or a straight person? To someone who believes in the death penalty or someone who is anti-abortion? To a mother of 5 kids living on welfare or a self-made businessman? To a republican or democrat? To someone fit or someone who's clearly not?

Looking for the following types but not limited to:

hippie/alternative lifestyle
obsessed with plastic surgery
in an open marriage
war veteran/military
psychic healer
little person
real cowboy
body art/piercings
married gay man/woman with children
Native American
Vegas Showgirl
Gun club member
Orthodox Religion

Strong beliefs/opinions may include:

Death penalty
Lesbian/Gay Marriages
Gay Adoption
Animal rights
Global Warming
Stem Cell Research
Inner racial relationships/dating

In the email please include the following:
Your Name
Your Age
Your Contact Information
A recent photograph
A short bio including your type and beliefs

Memphis Film Society -- new

In addition to filming my feature in Memphis, I am also in the process of setting up a new non-profit called the "Memphis Film Society." I am modeling this group after the famous Austin Film Society. At first, MFS will be offering free monthly network mixers, free monthly screenings of otherwise unseen films in this area, and parties at the two big Memphis film festivals.

Later (a year or so down the line), we will add membership levels, workshops, a filmmaker's grant program, and other interesting events in Memphis--all geared towards you, area actors, filmmakers, and film enthusiasts!

Check out our baby website at periodically to see info (though I will also send it to this group). What I need right now from you, the film community, is word-of-mouth advertising. The bigger the turnout for the mixers/screenings, the bigger a force we will be in this community.

I am putting together the e-list for everyone who would like to receive discounts, newsletters, and information about events concerning the Memphis Film Society right now. If you would like to be on this list, email me at and I will add you to all our mailings.

Please forward this to everyone you know in the film industry. Our first mixer will be in March, and I'm looking forward to meeting each and every one of you. Cheers!

Rich Newman
Founder, Memphis Film Society
