Indie Trailer Sunday: Trippiest Trailer Ever - Machotaildrop
What the f**k is this?! I hate to use profanity, but this trailer deserves it! My friend Don at Quiet Earth told me to check out the trailer for an indie called Machotaildrop and it's the trippiest, craziest, weirdest thing I've ever seen. I don't really know what's going on, but basically it's about a skateboarder named Walter Rhum who realizes his dream of turning pro and riding for the world's greatest skateboard company called Machotaildrop. I'm surprised Spike Jonze isn't producing this. Anyway, if you want to totally have your mind blown, or melted, then check out this trailer. And don't say I didn't warn you that it would be weird!
Watch the trippy trailer for Machotaildrop:
Machotaildrop is co-written and co-directed by first-time filmmakers Corey Adams and Alex Craig. It was shot up in Vancouver, Canada in 2008, but that's all we can seem to find on it, although we know it showed at the Whistler and Toronto Film Festivals. Apparently Corey Adams won a contest on Fuel TV back in 2004 (to make a film on a $100K budget, his was the best one) and was then given a million dollar budget to make a feature film. Machotaildrop is supposedly that film, some six years after winning the contest. I definitely don't think this has a distributor and we're not sure when to expect it in theaters (if at all), so stay tuned.
