The X-Reel Personal Project, Years In the Making

It’s been 8 or 9 years since I last worked on my personal project called, X-Reel. It was based on this alternate universe where photographic and cinemagraphic processes took off on a different branch of development. At the same time, cheesy exploitation films never went away (think: Russ Meyer meets Grindhouse’s Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez). I used to make video tape sleeves for my make-believe movies.

Looking over my work, even on Instagram, it’s easy to see that this aesthetic appears throughout. But one important thing here: the women, villain or heroine, always come out on top.

Kill Dolly, Kill. Or, Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! Comma rules be damned.

Vixen’s Revenge. They Gone and Done it Now! Don’t let your young children watch this one. And be careful doing photoshoots where guns are involved, kiddies.

Blonde Defiance.  Probably more of a Beyond the Valley of the Dolls influence here. When I was a kid, I saw a few scenes from that movie, had no idea what was happening, but it obviously made an impression.
