IOW: “1972” zaps 2011 circuit

It took a while, but Kill Vampire Lincoln Productions of Champaign finally cut loose a full trailer for their sci-fi short ONCE UPON A TIME IN 1972 which we share with you here because, of course, there is no better time than the present for 1972:

Word is the just-wrapped follow-up, ONCE UPON A TIME IN 1973, expounds on what exactly warranted the earlier scuffle between adventurer Jack (Jonathan Harden) and “Bruce” the robot while promoting actor Matt Fear to a role more substantially heavy than his line cook cameo in 1972. Until the sequel is unveiled, you can catch the original at several late-summer play dates including: August 6, 6:30 p.m. @ GenCon, Indianapolis, IN; August 11-14 @ Artist’s Alley, WizardWorld, Chicago, IL; September 2-5, date/time TBD @ Dragon*Con, Atlanta, GA; September 9 @ BrainwAsh Movie Festival, Oakland, CA.

Kill Vampire Lincoln stewards Chris and Anne Lukeman have also built a portfolio for their Railsplitter Media agency, formed this past spring to handle video production needs in Champaign-Urbana and elsewhere. Although we rarely embed strictly commercial material on C-U Blogfidential, one can easily watch this “sizzle reel” and not be bored for a single second:

The Lukemans have even caught PopTent fever along with numerous central Illinois neighbors, already winning two contests at the crowdsource branding site and netting more than $10,000 for their efforts! One involved a CVS drugstore campaign featuring Becky Griesheimer (BEDTIME FOR TIMMY) and a voiceover by Eric Sizemore (PRESS START 2 CONTINUE) while we present the other spot below, a Dell message starring Bill Kephart (REVOLTING), Mike Trippiedi (AMBER ROSE), and an awfully familiar mechanical fellow…

… whom we learn brandishes a wicked laser eye beam in promotional frolics like the above despite its absence in his original starring role, just as with the Japanese monster Gigan. We sad now.
