"Here's to the first of the day, fellas!" That was Jack Nicholson in Easy Rider, and it's my toast to the crew of La Motochorra, a "short, Lesbian biker film" written and directed by Clarice Bales that began filming in Bisbee this week.
The only way to publish is to write, and the only way to direct is to get a film made. It's a helluva lot harder than it looks, but Clarice raised a fair bit of cash on Indiegogo (but they could always use more, especially as they move into post-production) and they've now got film in the digital can. Somehow I wrangled an Executive Producer credit on the film, but it was DP Ed Moore who said, "Assume anyone you don't recognize on set is an executive producer and treat them as such." I'm not sure what he means. Kick them in the shin?
Good luck and happy trails, La Motochorra!
