HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN has wrapped, plus a fun lil bit they shot!

Hey folks, Harry here with one of those projects that AICN really got behind long before HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN was picked by Robert Rodriguez as part of his GRINDHOUSE FAKE TRAILER Sxsw Contest... what feels like AGES ago. Jason Eisener shot an amazing trailer, and there were other wonderful and amazing trailers in that contest, but it was Jason's that captured the imaginations of folks all over. We Austin geeks instantly embraced Jason and I was proud to share the stage with Rodriguez when he announced Jason's film as the winner. Hell, the trailer even got included on the DVD release. It was that good. Well now - you know about Rutger Hauer playing the title character, but today - while checking out my FACEBOOK feed, I noticed that Jason had posted a new blog over at his HoboWithAShotgun.Com! So I gleefully clicked to read about the latest adventure on set, just to learn that he's been wrapped on his shoot for 2 weeks!!! Which means, HOLY SHIT! A HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN feature film has actually been shot!!! Not only that, they've been having fun and put together this really cool, "BEHIND THE SCENES" featurette regarding Budget Cuts... any and everyone that has ever shot an Indie will know the pain:



Jason has also done a host of different spots for our other trailer and FANTASTIC FEST bumpers contests. But I just felt that we should all just give Jason a High Five for completing the feature version of the trailer which debuted on YouTube & AICN! Now head over to the website and read the blogs and find out what films helped to inspire the feature we're all clamoring for!

Just shot this photo a while ago, balancing the camera on a knee, while using one arm to hold this heavy as fuck, full length loaded shotgun while trying to take this photo. Why? Well, I was such a fan of the trailer, that when I invited Jason to attend OCTO-BUTT-NUMB-A-THON in 2008 he and a friend who works at the Alamo decided to go in on a present... A real shotgun, a box of shells and a customized stock that says what you see above on one side & "Take this you internet cocksucker!!! From The Hobos & Thomas" I keep hoping to kill an intruder with it so the film gets publicity, but our ferocious guard dog has kept the house safe... but hopefully one day... after all, this is Texas!

    . . but I hope you never have to confront an intruder in your home. However, it's good to know you're prepared should it ever happen, God forbid. Stay safe and get that shotgun out to the range and familiarize yourself with it if you haven't done so already!

    all fucking fat and hunched over in his wheelchair! Jesus wept. Great idea, keep it loaded and displayed in some myopic place of honor. It's way more likely an intruder will use it on your slumbering man-mountain ass. Yoko could just hide behind your dead bulk like a cowboy taking cover behind a dead steer. That's right, that's Texas, where everyone is retarded and in denial that Texas, even Austin, is a nice place to live.

Looking forward to seeing the film when it eventually gets a release. <br><br> How anyone could compare this to snakes on a plane is beyond me. That film was clearly meant to be a straight action picture not the ironic B movie it was sold as. It was just a piece of shit that people laughed at. Then the marketing department tried to capitalise on that by making out it was deliberate.

You don't break into houses in Texas, dude. I can't tell you how many people I know have guns. And these are not cliche rednecks.<p>Seriously, what would you do? Give the intruder your money so you could live with yourself? Give him your wife for 15 minutes? Your daughter? REASON with him? Good luck with that. :)

  • June 24, 2010, 5:26 p.m. CST

    I don't know, maybe show him I have a gun?

    by jimmay

    Most people, yes, even criminals, will run when you have a gun pointed at them. Better yet, hold them under gunpoint until the police arrive. You don't have to automatically shoot and kill everyone, and I guarantee you if you do you'll regret it. I don't judge people wanting to defend themselves; I judge people waiting for someone to invade like its Christmas for them: "Hooray! I finally get to kill someone with my precious, precious gun!"

  • June 24, 2010, 6:47 p.m. CST

    Stunning wit there, Kosher.

    by jimmay

    Except I didn't call for gun control. I said automatically killing someone trespassing in your house, even if legal, is morally, at least, disproportionate, and will likely cost you more psychologically in the long run than the immediate blood-lust thrill of murdering another human being. <p>True story: I live in Colorado, home of the famous "make my day" law that allows you to legally murder anyone on your property without your permission. Not long ago, a drunken man mistook a neighbor's house for his own, and had lost his keys. He stumbled in through a window, and was gunned down by the homeowner without a thought. Now, I'm sure the officers all slapped him on the back and told him he did nothing wrong, but if you think he doesn't think about that night he killed some poor moron who stumbled into the wrong house, you believe what you see in movies a little too much. <p>In the real world, it matters when you kill someone, and "over my cold dead body" nonsense like you and Harry have iterated here does no one any favors. Again, enjoy your gun, keep it well. But take the goddamn thing seriously, and think damn hard before you ever use it.

But if some punk is jacking your TV and you end all he's ever gonna have (like the Eastwood quote there, cowboys?) shooting him dead is gonna be on your conscience not mine. <p> May you all shoot your senile parents that wandered into your homes after dark. <p> Namaste, couch warriors.

    Straw Men?

    by KosherWookie

    Jimmay, I live in Texas. I am a retired soldier, and so is my wife. We both have carried weapons for a living. We understand their use and, more importantly, we understand that restraint is a virtue. As a retired soldier with a concealed handgun carry permit, I have never had to draw my weapon. My wife has had to draw down on an attacker once (she makes the foolish mistakes, regularly and repeatedly, of being physically attractive and leaving the house while in possession of a vagina). Upon looking down the barrel of her weapon, said assailant decided that she was NOT, in fact, "A piece of ass to die for" and retreated. See? No drunkenness, no "Wild West" attitude... Just the understanding that a show of force is sometimes required. So, stop whining about some dead drunk and put on some big-girl panties, okay?

    by KosherWookie

    I literally could not care less about your opinion, conscience or histrionics over the 'tragedy' of one drunk getting offed. Be a slave to your feelings all you want; not my problem. It's just that, as a veteran of 5 separate armed conflicts (whose conscience is sufficiently clear that he sleeps like a baby every night)... I refuse to be lectured to by some pus-nuts, no load dipshit child. Now get the fuck off of my lawn, boy.

    by jimmay

    I'm glad the fact you've served in the military makes you morally exempt from scrutiny. And I'll lecture to whoever I want, thank you. That's the beauty of the internet. <p> For the third time, I've never advocated gun control here, just restraint and lack of brazen bravado in dealing with life and death issues. But something tells me I'll just receive another barrage of "pussy" insults. Why is it tough men like you get so angry when you perceive you, or your beliefs, are being questioned? Glad the service taught you so much discipline. <p> For what its worth, thanks for your service to our country and being a soldier, but being an asshole? I'm afraid that's its own reward isn't it?

    Exempt From Scrutiny?

    by KosherWookie

    Hardly. Nor are you; your argument contained a number of gratuitous assertions, which (as anybody who has taken a course in rhetoric knows) can be just as gratuitously dismissed. As for my mention of my time in the service: I was simply establishing I might be qualified to makeg an informed assertion on the subject of the use of force. I insulted you ONLY after you failed to bring a substantive argument to the table and fell back on the whole "all gun people are trigger-pumping morons" stereotype. Well, that plus the fact that you just come off as a total douche. Good night!

    You immediately posted a comment on gun control, something I never said word one about. You made the first assumption towards me, not I towards you. Yeah, I've made logical fallacies here, so have you. If you look carefully, virtually any argument is full of them, the clever ones just know how to get away with them. <p>In summation, I mocked Harry's cavalier assertion he'd like to shoot someone, complete with picture, was attacked by you as being pro-gun control. I called out cavalier attitudes towards life and death, and you rebutted with accusations of smarminess, bringing up your service record to suggest it made you an authority on the deadly use of force in civilian situations, and brought up an example of when your wife pulled a gun in self-defense, but, get this, DIDN'T SHOOT THE GUY! Just as I was suggesting a rational person would do unless they absolutely needed to kill someone to defend themselves. How am I the villain here again?

    I Know...

    Sorry for that plot cul-de-sac; I personally can't WAIT to see this film. Have always liked Rutger Hauer's work.

    Not saying you're a villain, Jimmay...

    by KosherWookie

    Just saying that your 'absolutist' and judgmental viewpoint was counter-productive from the outset. I brought up the old saw about gun control to illustrate the other extreme of the argment ("Never" replied to with "Always," if you like). And yes, the fact that the Mrs.didn't have to shoot the guy to make her point was intended to illustrate that there IS such a thing as a middle ground.

  • June 24, 2010, 9:57 p.m. CST

    As for the beginning of the argument...

    by KosherWookie

    I totally agree with you that Harry's "can't wait to shoot somebody"attitude is beyond fucked up. So we DEFINITELY agree there.

    In hindsight I've clearly overreacted to a bad joke

    by jimmay

    on Harry's part. In my case, projected extrinsic frustration and a keyboard are a pathetic mix. <p>See? I really am a pussy, admitting I'm wrong in an internet debate.

    I know we're all worried about Harry killing someone

    by Inexplicable_Nuclear_Balls

    But what the hell is up with the punching sound fx in that youtube clip? Is the guy made out of steel or something?

  • June 25, 2010, 8:07 a.m. CST

    Well, Jimmay, Then I'm A Pussy Too...

    by KosherWookie

    Because I got personal way too quick. Anyway, back to movies!

    And I Do Apologize For That.

    by KosherWookie

    No hard feelings... Well, at least not anymore than normal movie-geek friction would cause anyway.

    Harry in prison would be hilarious for a movie about rape

    Too funny, Harry!

    I had a similar thought when I was practicing clearing my house with an Airsoft rifle the other day. "Man, if it does ever hit the fan I sure hope my plasma screen isn't in the line of fire!"

    If you think this movie looks terrible

    You should drink more hard liquor. And don't you fucking tell me that's bad advice... it's perfect advice. HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN.* (*said with a John-Goodman-In-Big-Lebowski finality)
