Duality – An Update

Posted by jeff | Posted in Filmmaking, Storytelling, Video | Posted on 01-10-2012

We’ve been hard at work editing Duality since April, slowly but surely making progress on what we feel is a great film.

See our trailer below, enjoy it. Love it. Share it. Watch it over and over, until you get the chance to see the film for real.

We’ve got plenty of other things in the works, more trailers to come!

The Gospels – Dance Decay

Posted by chuck | Posted in Filmmaking, Friends, Storytelling, Video | Posted on 12-11-2011

Our latest video has us teaming up with Orange County natives The Gospels in the release of their song “Dance Decay”. The Gospels, based out of Fullerton CA, are straight forward rock-and-roll, straight from the garage. Check them out on Bennett Records along with a handful of other fantastic musicians. And, enjoy the video.

The Hobosoul Gets Sexy

Posted by chuck | Posted in Bringing Back The Hobo, Video | Posted on 09-11-2011

Like we said, a lot of stuff on the way. So, let’s kick things off with this commercial we did for an underwear company called Br4ss. We teamed up with Matt Rodgers Media to create this tale of a man being fitted for a pair of boxers by a sexy seamstress. Enjoy.

Lots To Come

Posted by chuck | Posted in Filmmaking, Storytelling, Video | Posted on 08-11-2011

Hey everyone. So, it’s been a little while since we last spoke; we know, we know. But like most guys would, we are going to overlook the fact that we have been MIA and shower you with all the promises of what’s to come and hope that you forget all about the fact that we left you pining for a little Hobosoul.

Coming soon:

Br4ss Underwear: Commercial
Glimpse: Short Film
The Gospels – Dance Decay: Music Video
The Steelwells – This Dance is Out of Your Hands: Music Video
A Series Of Shorts shot/directed/edited by Jeff Stone
Gatorade: Spec Spot
Adidas: Spec Spot
Avia: Spec Spot

On top of all these things, a new web design AND a brand new Hobosoul reel. It’ll be everything you’ve ever dreamed of…and more.

Upgrades – Canon 5D Mark ii

Posted by jeff | Posted in Filmmaking, Resourceful Living, Video | Posted on 16-09-2010

The Hobosoul has entered into a new era.

We’ve purchased a 5D Mark ii for both our video and photography work. In the coming weeks/months, we’ll have a handful of stuff to release, as we’ve been working hard on at least 4 ‘for pleasure projects’ and are in the midst of a few corporate gigs. And to top it all off, we’ll be revamping our Projects Page and our Reel to further streamline our operation. It’s a busy time for the Hobosoul.

We’re back…

It’s been a little while since we’ve allowed you to take a gander into our heads…so here you go.  This Farrell’s commercial is the first of a bunch of new projects that we will be launching over the summer.

We teamed up with an agency known as Studio 360 to produce this spot for Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour Restaurants to promote their 1st Annual Ice Cream Eating Contest.

The Man Date – released

Posted by jeff | Posted in Filmmaking, Storytelling, Video | Posted on 15-06-2010

2009

Officially the last film we shot in our attempt to shoot something every month last year, we have completed “The Man Date”.

Special thanks to all cast and crew, for their hard work on a long night of shooting and their patience in waiting for us to get this thing done. Coming in at a final budget of just under $200, I can safely say it is the most bang we’ve gotten for our buck…ever. We couldn’t have done that without all the help/donated time (which would really bring the final budget up over $2000), so make sure you watch and clap throughout the credits.

Everyone sucks

Posted by jeff | Posted in Video | Posted on 02-03-2010

Thanks to friend Eric Trine, I found this little gem from Louis CK.

It’s not very hobo related, unless you think of needing to pare down your things and stop complaining about everything. He’s right, people are impatient and complain about everything. And here I am, complaining about complainers. So we’re all in the group.

The blog header isn’t entirely accurate. Check out Eric’s blog for other great clips, photos and obscure stuff that he finds/buys.

The Imaginarium of Terry Gilliam

Posted by chuck | Posted in Filmmaking, Storytelling, Video | Posted on 02-12-2009

I don’t intend to have all my posts be about someone else’s work but the The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus is one film I could not pass up telling you about. If you are a fan of film, you probably already know about this, for those who don’t troll around the Internet all day watching movie trailers, this one’s for you.

Directed by Terry Gilliam, the man who brought us Brazil, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, and so on, brings us this new story about Dr. Parnassus and his traveling show, where he leads members of his audience through their imaginations. But Dr. Parnassus has a secret. 1,000 years ago he made a bet with the Devil for immortality and won, only to trade his immortality for youth to be with his one true love. But in order to make this trade he promises the Devil his first born child when he or she turns 16. It is now the present day and Dr. Parnassus’ daughter is almost 16 and he must find away to win back her freedom.

He’s Back

amelie

My favorite film maker, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, returns with his new movie “Micmac’s a Tire-Larigot”. Jean-Pierre is best known for his film “Amelie”. If this is the only movie that you have seen by the French director, you are all missing out.
Before Amelie he co-directed two movies with Marc Caro called “Delicatessen” and “City of Lost Children”, and then went on to solo direct “Alien Resurrection”. After Amelie he directed “A Very Long Engagement”. Jean-Pierre Jeunet has had the most influence on me by far.

Movember – The Month Formerly Known As November

Posted by jeff | Posted in Events/Parties, Friends, Video | Posted on 13-11-2009

New Image about movember.jpg

November is no longer just the eleventh month of the year. It’s now more famously known as “Movember”. Men: grow your moustaches. Women: grow your moustaches, or draw one on. Go out, get a sponsor, raise some money to benefit prostate cancer research. Looking good has never been so good.

A Homeless James Bond

Posted by jeff | Posted in Video | Posted on 17-09-2009

My friend Ron supplies me with constant hobo related goods on the Internet. His recent, a short film about a homeless James Bond, felt worthy of posting here…if only for the cans stored in the cardboard home and it’s subsequent collapse. Oops, I just gave away the ending.
