CB’S POV: The Next Voice You Hear… (“Sorry to Bother You”)

It’s difficult to quickly describe Sorry to Bother You, starting with the title: is it a nod to a telemarketer’s lame excuse for trying to sell you something you neither want or need, or is it the filmmakers ironically talking to the audience, trying to jar them from their complacency?

Perhaps the best shorthand description would be, if there was a crossover episode between Atlanta and Black Mirror, this might be it.Our hero, Cassius Green, is so down-and-out he’s accepting charity from people who could use some charity themselves. He gets a job at what has to be the sleaziest telemarketing company on the planet and he’s no good at it—until a colleague suggests he’ll get better results if he uses his “white…See More

    SKYCITY TALKRADIO

    THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

    Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.

    EARTH SQUADRON 3D MOVIE!

    The Earth is threatened by unknown aliens who travel from their home planet to Earth to subjugate its people and loot it of resources using their superior technology and vicious nature.

     

    The Earth Squadron Project (www.EarthSquadron.com)is moving along nicely, so far we have successfully fleshed out the short story into an 83-page feature length script. The Earth Squadron logo has been completed and we have created over 20 characters, ships and alien creatures.

    As of March 5 2014, we were able to successfully raise over $3000 during our 60-day indiegogo crowd funding campaign! We will utilize these funds for audio, voice actors, ram, 3D accelerator cards and promotional materials.

    We still need additional funding for packaging, marketing, trade shows, film festivals, and production equipment. Please donate to our campaign so that we can continue the progress we all already made. Thank you in advance for any assistance that you provide.
