Unboxing Video

Posted in FILM with tags , , , on May 29, 2021 by dcairns

My copy of WEIRD WISCONSIN, the Bill Rebane box set from Arrow, arrived this morning. I thought I’d honour the occasion with my first UNBOXING VIDEO, and then I thought I’d make it in a Rebanesque style.

It’s quite short.

My documentary, WHO IS BILL REBANE?, is quite long. I didn’t have time to make it shorter. But I now know that making a feature film in a couple of months is no big deal, so long as you don’t have a Tonkinese cat screaming in your face the whole time. I’d like to do it some more.

It would be delightful if the IMDb chose today to recognise the film’s existence, but no, that’ll be another blog post for another day.

Reviews (for the doc) have been good so far. My hope is that it might actually change some viewers’ minds about the whole set — they might be thinking they don’t like Bill Rebane films after watching them all, then watch the doc and decide they do. In a way. Or they might think they like them and then decide they like them a lot. I don’t want to make anybody NOT like them, though I suppose that would be a kind of achievement too.
