Fistful of Dollars

It was Clint Eastwood day at the Krause household. "Fistful of Dollars" started out with the most amazing opening credit sequence ever. Nothing like horse and riders in silhouette with the outstanding soundtrack. Yes, this movie is one of Clint's best.

The cinematography is breathtaking. Perfect setting with the Spanish style village and adobe buildings. The shadows, lighting, close ups, long shots, everything perfect. Love the coffin maker.

And it wouldn't be a Clint Eastwood movie without dynamite.

Rock and Roll Will Never Die

Beginning pre-production for my next film for the Wyoming Short Film Contest.

I'm shooting a short documentary about my 15-year-old nephew, Derek, who is a fan of classic rock and roll. He recently became interested in acquiring a collection of vinyl records featuring rock bands of yesteryear. I'm totally psyched!

Stay tuned. . .

Django Unchained Observations

Having a grand old time looking for interesting things in Django Unchained.

Slave Django throws off his blanket in the beginning and later throws off his jacket when he surrenders at Candyland.

The dead rabbit hangs upside down on the door of the winter cabin and Django hangs upside down after his capture.

The mention of birthday cake at the winter cabin and the mention of white cake at Candyland.

White towels on the front of the bar in the saloon in Daughtrey, Texas and white sheets of the Klansmen in Tennessee.


Crazy Craig Koons same name as Captain Koons (Christopher Walken's character) from Pulp Fiction.

Django shot Stephen in the knee caps. Bill threatened to shoot Beatrix in the knee caps in Kill Bill.

Schultz is a dentist and Calvin Candy has rotten teeth.

Candy holds up fingers as he's counting. In the bar scene in Inglourious Basterds, the American holds up three fingers which tips off the Nazi about the American in disguise. Shoot out follows.

New Film Project

Getting ready for the 2013 Wyoming Short Film Contest.

This will be my first documentary. It's about veganism in cattle country. I want to interview vegans in Wyoming and find out why they have chosen a vegan diet and what it's like to be a vegan in today's meat/dairy culture.
