Written, Produced & Directed by Jeff Gallea 2009
synopsis: A character study of Jinx, a blue-collar leather worker who lives in a tent on the roof is lost boredom and psycho-sexual pursuit of a co-worker. In his simple life, Jinx grinds out studded belts in a leather work shop then grinds on Mika during his breaks, but his relationship with Mika is not enough. Jinx struts though his booze soaked world with bravado and confidence, only to be shot down by a high society girl who likes to slum it. Through her, Jinx see his sleazy true self and doesn't like what's in the mirror. A brief encounter with a vulnerable prostitute helps him to accept his grim reality.
(notice: this film has a sexually suggestive and aggressive sex scene)
Director Jeff Gallea (Buried In Tucson, Belt Slave) revisits some of the characters, themes and footage from his divisively misogynistic underground feature Belt Slave, to take a look at the thrilling, sad, and dark aspects of the male 'id' on the hunt for sex. Wolfgang Nelson gives us an intense and powerful performance as Jinx, a modern update on Stanley Kowalski.
OK, its pretty much split down the middle with like/hate! hehe.
I made this short film using a few scenes from a feature film that was never released titled 'Belt Slave'. We shot this on a borrowed SD camcorder with a budget of $100 for food. The actors were all new to acting and willing to work for free. This film was never accepted into any film festivals, but seams to be very popular on YouTube, I think because of the title.
Whatever. To all those who cant see past the sex/strangulation scene, the film was a small study on horrible relationships occurring in unusual work environments. The sex scene made much more sense in the context of the full feature film. I put it in this short and released it to show the effort we made.
If you didn't like this short, go make you own and post it and get 1,800,000 hits.
Jeff Gallea Dont you think the name is why it got that many hits? I mean you say so yourself in the comment but I'm not here to judge I liked it I got more than one thing from it my question is what was the purpose of making this film what message are we supposed to take away from it just curious.
@DongDestroyer, no, Eleven Pond is a band and had nothing to do with this short. The director Jeff is our bass player/singer and we put his video up just to support him. You have no fucking clue, this was his 1st short made with a budget of $0 dollars and he didn't waste his money on film school because he never went to film school. Why don't you post a link to YOUR short film in the comments? I'm sure it's a masterpiece. Troll.
Interesting effort. The fact that it moves along like an elephant with a broken leg, should not distract the average viewer from it's 'dark side,(tongue in cheek) The thespian skills of the cast, are, mercifully never brought to task and the complete context, suggests a rudderless ship adrift upon a sea of mediocrity. Aside from that,......well,...'nuff said:;).
if you don't like artsy films this is not for you. I liked this film, it's dark and sexy. It's obviously a student film or a film by new filmmakers and new actors, but the story and subject matter are interesting. Is he raping her? or is this just a game they play?
The story of Keri and David, college sweethearts who together embark on a journey of personal discovery. Through their shared belief that they would define the terms of their relationship and not the church, society, family, or friends, they become the Bonnie and Clyde of sexual exhibitionism!
Sechskies Eun Ji Won and rookie singers Lee Soo Hyun and Kim Eun Bi performed the third OST single titled "Love Song". The rookies, who are both training to debut in HYWY Entertainments girl group HYWY Girls, joined the veteran to sing about falling in love with an unlikely person. The rhythmic medium temp track is the perfect tune to make your spring days even brighter.
As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
