“Messin’ All Over Texas: PR!MO Docudramatainment Show For Television,” is a spoof of a theatrical trailer made by Houston filmmaker Alex “PR!MO” Luster for TAMI’s Mess With Texas program. Combining grand scenes from archival films with a dramatic voiceover and humorous intertitles, the trailer promises an “epic saga of an adventure of a lifetime with a cast of thousands!”

This video was produced as part of the 2012 Mess With Texas program, commissioned for the exhibition Perspectives 178: CINEPLEX at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, in partnership with Aurora Picture Show and the Texas Archive of the Moving Image. Texas-based film/video artists Kelly Sears, Mark and Angela Walley, Scott Stark, Alec Jhangiani, and Alex Luster delved into the vast collection of movies, newsreels, and homemade films in the Texas Archive of the Moving Image and created entirely new works from the footage. These new reworkings are creative intersections of past and present, bringing new life to cinematic memory.
