It's only appropriate that after a post about cute cards featuring hearts and kittens with pretty flourescent pink bows, that I would introduce you to some gore . . . . .

My pal Rob and I did the music to a movie called Long Pigs about 5 years ago. It's a low-budget mockumentary about a couple of incompetent filmmakers who set out to make a documentary about a cannibal serial killer and find themselves in way over their heads.

By chance, we ran into one of the filmmakers a few months ago and were told it would be playing for a week at The Royal. We had never seen the final cut, so it was really fun to watch the movie at the theatre a couple nights ago!
Chris and Nathan (and everyone involved) did a great job.

Check out this weeks Eye Magazine which documents the 7 year journey of the making of the movie. The article uses Long Pigs as an example of how much time and effort people put into independent productions that they feel passionately about - and that it isn't always a walk in the park to create something. Truth!

Also . . . handing out beef jerky at the door "made" by the character in the movie? Hilarious.
