My Movie Is Out. Your Entertainment Salvation Is Nigh.

OK, boys and girls, if you have been at all enjoying my blog, here's the first time that I will ask for something back. Support my blog by buying my movie. It's only ten bucks, it's an enjoyable little film, and it'll help me pay off some massive debts. I'm not begging, but if you don't buy it I'm going to put you in a headlock and give you a nuclear noogie. Here's the pitch:

STRAIGHT ACTING a documentary film about the subculture of gays who play contact sports - rugby, ice hockey and rodeo now available on DVD.

Pissant Productions announces the DVD release of STRAIGHT ACTING, Spencer Windes’ debut documentary film about his evolution from a conservative Mormon missionary into a comfortably gay man, by playing violent contact sports. The fifty-seven minute film which premiered in June at New York City’s NewFest Film Festival is available via DVDs retail for $9.95 (plus $1.50 shipping and handling).

On the rugby pitch, hockey rink and rodeo circuit, Windes encounters the subculture of queer athletes busting stereotypes - including their own. Bruised and bloodied, Windes emerges from the scrum having rediscovered a trait common to all men, gay or straight: the need to play.

"Gay or straight, all guys like to play - I hope that this message comes through in my film, especially now when we spend so much time discussing what divides us rather than what unites us as Americans, athletes, men - just human beings. There is more to gay culture then what the media shows and more that unites us than divides us." said Windes, a freelance writer and the web marketing manager for American Apparel.

STRAIGHT ACTING, features the music of Fugazi as well as that of several up and coming independent artists. Produced by Amy Sommer ("Waco: The Rules of Engagement") the film was edited by Matt Martin ("Unprecedented: The 2000 Presidential Election") and Emmy award winning music man Lawrence Brown provided the score and music supervision.
