This is it. After 12 years, the story of “The Week in Hot Springs” is finally able to be told. I’ve scrounged tapes and old digital transfers for anything usable – scraps of scenes, long lost outtakes, half-baked ideas, incomplete shorts – and re-edited everything completely from scratch, and fleshed out the unfilmed parts of the story with interstitial titles. There is one new piece of content. We never shot anything for “The War of the Dandelions,” the final 7th episode. So with the help of some young actors, one scene has been read through to finally finish the project.
If we had the time, the resources, and the patience, this is the story we would have and almost told.
It’s terrible. There’s no continuity. There’s no production values. The acting’s all over the place. Most of the the plot makes no sense. There’s no pacing, no flow. But fuck it. We tried.
