There’s no place like Oberpfaffelbachen

April 30, 2008

Thanks to Platypus3:16 for sending me this beautiful picture of the Ramp. It takes me back to a simpler time – and by simpler I mean confusing and awkward. But I can’t lie, I miss that little village. If anyone else pictures of the Ramp, please send my way. Share them with me on Flickr or emailjeff [dot] schultz [dot] usa at gmail [dot] com.

Drowning in a Sea of Awesomeness

April 11, 2008

Thank you everyone for your amazing support and responses to the documentary. I just saw that The Ramp Facebook page is near 350 Fans! I’ve never been so popular in my life. If you haven’t joined, please check it out. I’ve been busy with the movie launch and promise to post more shortly. 

A Time to Give Thanks

April 7, 2008

Wanted to give a quick thanks to Ben Wojdyla at Jalopnik for his count them, not 1, not 2, but 3 articles about The Ramp. His investigative work at the beginning would make Woodward and Bernstein proud.

But seriously, thanks for the support of this little prowject (hopefully you catch that reference). Very cool and I’m grateful for the attention. You’ve earned a spot at my Oscar Party. Stay tuned for more. Lots going on, just doing my best to keep up.

The Final Countdown

April 2, 2008

The documentary is finished. I shall repeat because I don’t believe it myself – The documentary is finished. The full length feature will be posted on April 4th on http://www.rampenfest.com.There are so many people I would like to thank and over the course of the next week, I will. But right off the bat, thanks to TalkDemonic, Ola Podrida, and Black Before Red for offering up your music for the documentary and trailer. It’s amazing and wouldn’t be what it is without your music. Please visit their MySpace pages and give them much love.More details to come. Thanks for your comments, emails, and encouragement. I hope you like it.  

The Ramp Trailer

March 19, 2008

Ladies and Gentleman, I have news. First, the trailer for my documentary “The Ramp” is finished. Huge thanks to Black Before Red for providing the music. And a huge thanks to all the bands that sent me music for consideration. The song is amazing and the trailer can be viewed on YouTube and at the Rampenfest website. That’s right. I’ve created a Rampenfest site where you can check out the trailer, the movie poster I created, and soon… the full length documentary. One last bit of news – I know, I’ve been a busy man. Please join “The Ramp” Facebook Page I’ve created. I’m shallow and want lots of friends.That is all for now. More news to come.  

Calling All Musicians and Groupies

March 6, 2008

I’ve assembled a rough cut and certain sections scream for music.  So, if you are in a band, date the lead singer (or drummer) of a band, or still wear tight leather pants, consider this an open call for all to send me music to be featured in my documentary.  It’s like American Idol but with good music and I promise not to judge you if it sucks.What do you get in return? You get to help a man fulfill his life long dream to make a documentary about a small Bavarian village and their giant ramp. And if it blows up, I’ll let you play at my Oscar party.

Send links/messages via Facebook. Or just post your link as a comment here. I guess that’s what it’s there for.  

Very Important News…

I just drank 12 Red Bull’s and lived to tell about it. Hooray for me!

Busy Editing

February 27, 2008

I know, I know, I haven’t been posting often enough, I promise I’ll do better.

Been busy pouring through all the footage I shot and started the editing process. Lots of great stuff. This documentary might not suck after all. More to post shortly. In the meantime, enjoy this picture.

 

Pimp my Blog

February 26, 2008

Lots of news to report.

You’ll notice I’ve decked out my blog with some new fancy features. This is more of an opportunity to pat myself on the back for figuring out how to add Facebook and Flickr widgets but since it took me three days, please peruse.

And that is a nice segue to Flickr. I’ve posted some Oberpfaffelbachen pics on my Flickr site. The town is amazing and as I mentioned before, full of cows. Thanks Claude for your comments.
