The comment “It was like watching a full length feature film on fast forward and only pausing at the good bits,” goes a long way to explaining the experience of setting into Neo-Mega-Ultra Tokyo to watch Frank DanCoolo: Paranormal Drug Dealer. The film’s director Andrew W. Jones joins me to discuss creating this hyper-real, tongue in cheek world.
Frank DanCoolo: Paranormal Drug Dealer (2010)
In the annoyingly sparkly future-scape of Neo-Mega-Ultra Tokyo, reporter Holly Malone tracks a murderous urban legend. She discovers that a chain of drug related killings leads down a super natural trail. A trail that ends with no average pill pusher, but FRANK DANCOOLO: PARANORMAL DRUG DEALER!
The liberating thing about green screen is that I had to make absolutely no compromises to production design and sets and not being able to put a camera in a certain place.
