|Indie filmmaker Frank Ladner|
Poplarville, Mississippi offers many interesting characters and surprising amenities. One of the most delightful has proven to be indie filmmaker Frank Ladner. His first full length movie, a Southern mockumentary entitled "Hickory Never Bleeds," won several awards at area film festivals following its premiere in 2012. It's available on DVD.
"Max Peril," his second mockumentary, released in 2015 and is still making the rounds of film festivals, garnering multiple awards. It should be available for purchase in early 2016.
Both films have video trailers on YouTube for your pleasure. Don't miss the blooper reels, as well.
While you're waiting for Max to collect his trophies, you can enjoy a free short video on YouTube. Unlike the movies, "Almost Mine - Post-Apocalyptic Romantic Comedy Short Film" offers a scripted story with two charming stars as survivors of an apocalypse, struggling to scrape out a living.
You can check out my Examiner.com article on the video here.
