The TPHtour stopped in Tampa to stay with friends. We recap the most recent leg of the journey.

Special Guest Dan Gambino (and Bear) joins us as we record live from his garage in Tampa, FL.

The Perfect House is an independent horror film that chose to reject mainstream distribution and instead become the first movie ever to premiere on facebook.

In the Summer of 2011, 3 members of Gratwick Films planned a cross country tour to promote the films October 1, 2011 release. The goal was to procure sponsors for a tour bus that would take us around the country hosting free screenings everywhere we went.  But as the summer wore on, time ran out on how elaborate of a tour we could execute.

The confessions and video footage from the tour are included in a Youtube documentary following the tour to promote the first film to premiere on facebook. The documentary will be available in the fall of 2013.

It’s tough times for Gratwick and company. We are less than a few week away from our drop dead date to pull off a cross country tour.  We are still looking for sponsorship partners and investors for our publicity and marketing campaign. If you listen to this episode and know anyone who might toss a couple of crazy filmmakers a few bucks in gas money, send them our way!

Enter our Act 3. It’s now or never time as we gear up for a cross country tour.  Will it be in a major tour bus or will be travel the country in our own bucket of bolts.

Kris had an important business meeting (beer) so Will and guest-host Jhon Hoadley will be your guides through episode 20 of Gratcast. Will watched August Underground and Jhon could not handle it. SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT SECTION: If you are a BLOOD WRESTLING fan from GratFest1 then listen to this episode for a very special Blood Wrestling match happening next week inside Thunderdome!

This week, Kris and Will did a lot of stuff. Consisting of (but not limited to): We watched a re-enactment of the famous Spider-Man/Mary Jane kiss on the Warner Brother’s lot. Will watched Green Lantern. Kris has beefs with 1.) The Omen 2.) Kevin Smith and 3.) Rutgers University (yes that wound is still healing). Kris also runs the numbers on The Perfect House Tour’s ad plan. And we started watching Oz too! And Blood Wrestling from GratFest 1 is on YouTube!

Our most technologically successful episode yet! Will, Kris and this week’s special guest, Andrea Vahl talk about their own Hollywood stories as writers, directors, and actors. We talk about last week’s trip to Vegas and The SciFi Center where we held our screening. We blast Alamo Rentacar like the shady scamsters they are. We shower love upon Justin Timberlake and his appearance on last weekend’s Saturday Night Live. We get religious and talk Rapture. The Return to The Perfect House Tour getting it’s own reality TV show?


This week Kris and Will discuss implementing new technology into the podcast, the ‘week that was’ and the two new sites helping promote the horror film The Perfect House.  We preview the upcoming Las Vegas show before another edition of the Hollywood corner.  Kris asks Will what he learned from his latest production of Tub Talk and Will asks Kris about his long term plans in the industry.

Andrea guest hosts this week and coincidentally our first live streamed Gratcast.

From Paris With Love is very bad movie and a perfect example of the Hollywood machine mailing it in. Cheesiest green screen work ever. Complete copy of Training Day. I couldn’t see Travolta in a men’s sauna until I watched this movie.

Andreas week. Business plans, proposals for the TPHtour.  Andrea has been working on putting foreign distribution packages together. We are cutting the mini tour footage into a sizzle real for a reality show. We are trying to setup a show in San Diego and hoping to start the big tour in June. We have some crazy ideas and contests for the tour.  Kris went to the Hollywood Park for the Kentucky Derby.

Hollywood corner. Pressures of post production compared to pre production. What is the most important thing Kris and Andrea have learned so far. Having the knowledge to match my instincts. The blurry lines between friends and business partners.

Our first episode of Gratcast back from the road and home in Los Angeles. We recap where we’ve been and our plans for where we’re going.  We planned the 6-city mini tour to test audience reactions to our horror film The Perfect House, now that we know those who see the movie love it, the goal becomes how do we get as many people to see our movie as possible?

Record in Denver at our first stop on the six city mini tour. We took a break from the excitement of our very first convention, the Denver Starfest, to relax in our hotel room and recap the high of the past few days. From the fans we met, the characters in costume to the warm reception from our first foreign audience, it has been an unbelievable weekend.
