On Saturday, November 17th, 2012 , Kick Ass Oregon History is proud to partner with The Hollywood Theater to bring you DB Cooper Movie Night!
Who is DB Cooper? For reals? Well if you don’t know – now you know (here, here, and here. Oh, and here.).
We are planning on showing a (title soon to be revealed) feature length presentation, a short documentary from the 1980’s (when men were NOT afraid of big hair!) and still some other entertaining productions.
But we also want YOU to help!!! We would like to call out to you Ass- Kickers to submit YOUR OWN DB Cooper Short Film! And guess what – unless it really, really sucks, we will show it!!! On the Big Screen at The Hollywood Theater!! It’s like the HP Lovecraft Film Festival, just a little less… gothic. Ok, a LOT less gothic.
So here are the deets: Make a film. It should be at least tangentially related to DB Cooper. Have it be less than 5 minutes in length. And send it to us by November 1st, 2012. It can be a youtube link, an email attachment, or even a real live DVD***. And we’ll show it. It’s as simple as that!
As an example, I would like to present to you our fellow historian, and dear friend Heather Petrocelli’s film “DB Cooper: From Criminal to Cult Icon.”
And you don’t even have to have the Resident Historian in the feature, although that certainly wouldn’t hurt your chances…
So here’s the part you have all been waiting for: what do I win?!?! What – besides seeing your creative efforts broadcast onto the GIANT screen of the Kick Ass Hollywood Theater??? Is that not enough, Dear Ass Kicker?
Alright… the winning film (decided by a quite scientific process from the attendees at the event) will win…
- a bottle of (HRD) Bourbon
- a bottle of 7-Up
- and a pack of smokes
AND the right to say “I made the best fuckin’ DB Cooper Film of 2012, Bitches…” and the ability to back it up! So get out those iphone cams, camcorders, or if you have the gumption, that European 8mm camera that your Granddaddy looted in The Big War, and start making a Kick-Ass DB Cooper Short Film! The only thing you have to loose is time, and look at all the adoration and cheap whiskey you could win from this endeavor. Or as DB Cooper would (did) say… “Looks OK.”
*** email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will send you a mailing address if you want to send a real live DVD.
