An independent dramedy/mumblecore featurette I wrote and directed in Summer 2010.
The story of Jeff (Jason Hatchett), a melancholy young man who returns home to Texas for the Summer after his first year of college in D.C. He attempts to reconnect with old friends and reignite his relationship with Marie (Adria Palinski), the ex-girlfriend he still pines for. Meanwhile Jeff's good friend Connor (JD Penn), a blue-collar GPS aficionado, discovers the location of a mysterious geo-cache hidden way out in the country. As the presumed safety net of Jeff's old life and hometown suddenly crumble beneath his feet, he and Connor set out together on a road trip across the Central Texas hill country in order to track down the elusive geo-cache 'treasure' and perhaps discover something more along the way...
Also featuring Biana Tamimi, Jerome Bollom, Max Chester and Roman Rico.
Tim League (CEO of Alamo Drafthouse and Drafthouse Films) stops by "The Show!" to chat with Charlie Hodge about Drafthouse Films' theatrical re-release of the forgotten 1981 lion-adventure movie "Roar", one of the most disastrous behind-the-scenes productions of all time. For example, during filming Melanie Griffith was scalped by a full-grown lion on camera and the shot made it into the final film! You can't make this stuff up!
