PBDG Trailer playing at CAX this weekend

It’s all come full circle!  A year ago this month I shot our first footage for PBDG at California Extreme 2011 with Brian J. Patterson.

filming at CAX 2011And now thanks to your generous support, this weekend we are screening the PBDG trailer at the very same show.  I’ll be talking about some of the techniques we used to film inside the AFM playfield to capture the amazing stunt play of Jeri Ellsworth (we got your bang back right here on camera, baby!) and how we worked with the games on set, including blowing up some backglass.

Does a year seem like a long time to make a short film? Maybe so, but I’ve also been working on pinball documentaries about the Visible Pin project at the Pacific Pinball Museum and a second film about Wade Krause, who worked on that game and many others — I’ll be showing excerpts from Wade’s film as well.

Come by and say hi!

Welcome Planetary Pinball to PBDG

planetary pinballMeet Planetary Pinball, a new executive producer of Pinball Donut Girl.  I’m so thrilled to have Planetary involved and helping me get the film through post production. Headed up by Matt Christiano, Planetary supplies Williams/Bally parts, and you can find them easily at Pinball.com. They are working with Jersey Jack on the new WOZ game too!

Check out a great spot Elvira did for Planetary:
