Spaghettiman! A lazy and manipulative slacker eats radioactive spaghetti and develops a super power: he can shoot spaghetti from his hands.
Now, he patrols the dangerous streets of Los Angeles fighting crime – for a price!
In this episode of The Sci-Fi Maker Show, I interview the director and producer of Spaghettiman.
Spaghettiman: the motion picture
One of the big challenges for an independent filmmaker these days is getting noticed. How do you stand out from the glut of independent films being produced these days?
Spaghettiman manages to stand out for three reasons:
A great title that grabs your attention. It’s funny and you don’t have to write down the title to remember it.
A great concept. A superhero shooting spaghetti from his hands is just funny.
A great production. Spaghettiman is an engaging, entertaining, well-produced movie.
The director, Mark Potts, and the producer, Reilly Smith, have known each other since college and have produced over 100 short videos.
They have learned their craft well.
The script is well written. It’s obvious the writers understand structure and the hero even has a character arc.
The director of photography, Molly Becker, does a wonderful job shooting this movie with a Sony a7S. This camera allowed them to shoot night exteriors with no lighting kit. As a result, the night scenes look great and realistic.
I should also point out that the casting is great. The performances are first rate and really help sell the concept.
The first voice you hear in the interview is Mark Potts, the director. The second voice is Reilly Smith, the producer.
Here’s what I want you to do. Watch Spaghettiman. You can watch it on Amazon Video, iTunes, Vudu, DirectTV, and XBox.
You can also watch Cinema Six for free on Amazon if you have Prime.
