DARKNESS the T-SHIRT! 20 Years Later Part 2.

I've been throwing on a handful of posts with various news updates and just now realized I hadn't mentioned the official ROTTEN COTTON T-Shirt that was released last year.  At $14.99 it's a steal!  Check it out at:  http://www.rottencotton.com/leif-jonkers-darkness-p-658.html

And while I'm here the three most recent interviews/articles I've enjoyed being a part of are:  FANGORIA MAGAZINE online about the DARKNESS t-shirt, possible new projects and one of the horror film fests I organized last October:  http://www.fangoria.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=5846

FANGORIA Magazine online article about the trailer I cut for PassmoreLab's 3D conversion of Romero's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and our inclusion of this version in the other horror film festival I organized last October:  http://www.fangoria.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=5893

PITCH MAGAZINE online in Kansas City about DARKNESS showing at the KC CREEPFEST last October:

Lastly, my most favorite thing I've found on the web in a long time:

1. Click on the link below.
2. Roll your cursor over the sphere.
3. Once the forks spring out click on the sphere to start.
4. Hold down your "Down" arrow button to pull back on the spring plunger and release the button to launch the ball.
5. Your "Left" and "Right" arrow buttons control the flippers.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, over the last 20 years I've had a few new feature projects get close to launching but unfortunately they ultimately didn't happen.  To keep the lights on during this time I've worked a number of regular jobby jobs here in Wichita, I sold movie posters on eBay for a few years and I've worked a wide range of gigs on a number of other folks film/video projects all over the country.  On these various productions I have crewed in pretty much every department including (but not limited to) special fx artist, producer, actor, locations manager, stuntman, copy-writer and camera operator on projects ranging from television series, commercials, industrial films, big and no-budget features -- you name it.

Over the last few years I've also taken a shot at producing/directing commercials for the local and semi-national TV markets as well as internet promotions.  While I reserve the 13th DREAM Entertainment label for my upcoming genre feature work, I now do more mainstream and/or commercial work under the LTJ Productions banner.  This jump into commercial work yielded some spots that were very conventional and a few I really enjoyed.  I've embedded a few examples of this video work below or you can check out more spots on my two different video pages on Vimeo.  Here's my personal page that includes SD versions of some of the commercial work as well as promo-spots for DEMON MACHINE, GHOST CAROL and DARKNESS: http://vimeo.com/user3147861/videos
