Rubber City Blues.
This is our first stab at film making. Todd V and myself had just purchased our Sony video cameras and this was our first big project working together. The script was written by George Radak who has written countless theater plays. This was George's first stab at script for film. Todd and myself had worked independently on other films but this was our first real collaboration as film makers. George worked so hard that he had a heart attack and quad bypass surgery during the filming. He was able to recover and finish the film, what a dedicated director.
Overall we learned a lot, had a good time and did what most only dream about, we made a film. It runs about 40 minutes and was entirely shot and created in our town, Akron Ohio. Rubber City Blues was shot from October through December of 2008.
Staring a great group of locals including Rachel Roberts of Rachel's Secret Stache and Robin Dolan of XainGO. Overall the cast and crew did a fantastic job.
