WILSON TALKS IMPROVISING NEW AWARD-WINNING SHORT “SATELLITE BEACH”

Michael Barnes from The Austin Movie blog sits down to with Luke Wilson and Steve Eckelman of ‘Satellite Beach

They chose a well-worn corner of Güero’s Taco Bar on South Congress Avenue for the chat. Luke Wilson and Steve Eckelman were familiar with the menu and the staff. Austin resident Eckelman employs the eatery as “an office away from the office,” while frequent visitor Wilson has long enjoyed its South Congress vibe.

“I’ve known Steve since I was 9,” says the youngest of Hollywood’s Wilson brothers, who grew up in Dallas. “He was in school with my brother Andrew and was one of those guys who didn’t know that a senior in high school is not usually friends with somebody in fifth grade.”

Eckelman — thin, fair, precise — has worked as a personal assistant on various Wilson-related movies. He produced with Wilson — stolid, funny, a bit shaggy today — “Satellite Beach,” a short that follows the Endeavour space shuttle on its last journey through the streets of Los Angeles to the California Science Center and the transfer of the Atlantis space shuttle to the Kennedy Space Center. It screens 8:30 Friday at Spider House.

Before that, Wilson will emcee the Texas Film Awards at Austin Studios on Thursday.

The longtime friends are also working on “Juarez 9,” an Wilson-penned action comedy set in Mexico, and then “Tower,” a documentary based on the Charles Whitman shootings at the University of Texas in 1966, inspired by Pam Colloff’s article in Texas Monthly.

Wilson got the idea for “Satellite Beach” from an article in the Los Angeles Times about how the Endeavor would piggyback on a 747, land at LAX, then travel very slowly 11 or 12 miles through the urban streets to the science center. Eight hundred trees were removed to make way for the behemoth.

CHECK OUT THE FILM INTERNATIONAL REVIEW OF AFTER PORN ENDS…

“Can They Really Live A Normal Life After Porn?”  After Porn Ends  Check out the Film International Review by Kenneth Dator.

(photo via Wikipedia)

The title of this review, lifted from the publicity tagline, assumes the pitch of a midway barker outside the hoochie-coo tent at a wheat belt carnival. “See for yourself! She teases the imagination; he prods the curious, which is everyone, little lady, to take a peek! Go on now, my good sir, past the pretty lady and the handsome gent; go on in there, right there in the dark—is your heart pounding m’dear—and behold!”

“Can They Really Live A Normal Life After Porn?” After Porn Ends They hailed from the rural South, steel towns, and the San Fernando Valley. As teenagers, and young adults, none of them thought that porn was in their future. They were artists, baseball players, child prodigies, and even Ivy Leaguers. Now, after their lives in porn; they’re television stars, bounty hunters, writers, and social activists. What happened in between?

At least, this is what the press kit asks. But as with the wheat belt hoochie-coo, the dirty little secret is—there is nothing whatever salacious going on. In fact the pitch begs a happy ending. But the viewer will have to decide as the perennials and superstars of a thriving porno industry’s past – such as the late, and charming, John Leslie; its present, the beautiful and confused, Raylene; and those on the cusp of the future, the disturbingly unselfconscious, Mary Carey – wrestle with the hard questions that attend a harder life.

Across the broad range of passive interviews in this sincere documentary, the title question proves fairly, if not predictably, easy to answer. But the mechanics of the matter rest, as ever, on two obvious crucial factors: the first, a hypocritical society that makes a palpable and indelible impact upon the second factor, that of the personality and emotional fortitude of the superstar sex worker. While the first remains immutable, the second is becoming more resilient with the times. Even so, in the wake of forty years of change there have been some casualties in an industry that, once illegal, emerged from darkened basements and back-alley warehouses to become an arguably legitimate multi-billion dollar corporate global trade. One can dispute the claim of legitimacy on moral and philosophical grounds until doomsday, but, ultimately, money talks.

What Happens After Porn Ends?

by: Gordon Dymowski

One of the more disturbing aspects of American culture (including popular culture) is the duality of our opinions and perspectives – we celebrate those who achieve, yet will denigrate those who do not try ‘hard enough’; we will worship mediocrity while complaining about a lack of excellence; and we will publicly renounce resources that we privately enjoy.

I’m talking, of course, about pornography, and writing this post is a little challenging – I’m writing about a great documentary entitled After Porn Ends, and because of one single word, my view rates will go through the roof, but people will click off this post when they see it is not porn, which is a shame….because this is one of the more fascinating documentaries of recent years…
