Australian Fresh VHS Label Celluloid Apocalypse Unleashes A GUN FOR GEORGE in Deluxe Limited Edition Fashion and Feeds the Need for Videovores of the PAL Persuasion!
The rippin' rad logo for CAHV. Hey, man... is that thing loaded or what?You also run ItsOnlyaTshirt.com, a site offering radical threads for horror movies housed in VHS clamshells. Can you tell us how about the move to put a film out on VHS, and how it came about? The T-shirt label was always about trying to get my foot in the door. I wanted to work on key art for horror films, and that’s kind of hard to do when you don't have a body of work behind you. Putting myself out there helped me make this happen, and I met a lot of like minded people along the way. Myself, and these ‘like minded’ chaps were all VHS fans, and they all worked within the film industry in various roles. So we talked about the idea of starting our own boutique label, using the skills each had, and here we are today, with our first release Tell us about the film you’re releasing A Gun for George. How did you come to get involved in releasing it, and what can Tapeheads expect from the flick? It was done by a guy that worked on Garth Marenghi’s Dark Place, right? Damn, I love that show! Shot on 16mm, A Gun For George is a super
A look at the full package for A GUN FOR GEORGE. Dang, thas'alotta analog awesome, mang.Will you be able to make any NTSC copies for the Videovores over here in the States? Maybe team up with a label here in the States and do a release over here if the demand is there? I’m afraid our agreement with the powers that be was to release 50 copies only. Considering it takes about 30 mins to put together each box- we’re OK with this! But a ‘team up’ with a label in the future would be a real cool thing to look at! And i guess would help a lot of people with shipping prices and the problems with PAL/NTSC etc. You know I can dig it! Why put this movie on tape? What is about the VHS format that inspires you? I could go on about lost trips to video shops, holding a clamshell in your hand, being driven home from the shop and devouring every bit of text and every image on the box, but I’m sure its something your readers are all familiar with. This film is available on DVD, and it’s easy to find on the net (what film isn’t?)… But if you yearn for the experiences of old (as mentioned above) then this is for you. Ultimately, we (Celluloid Apocalypse) wanted this... so we made it! Palace Explosive label, and a small fortune being dropped on films like The Jekyll and Hyde Portfolio. Recently here in Melbourne we have seen a few VHS swap meets take place, combined with screenings. I can speak more so for Melbourne, and say it’s a small, but busy community.
I’m not exactly sure what ya mean, but I got auto-tracking on all my machines, so I think I’m good! Either way, Tapeheads, this is one kick-ass slab of video love and it sold out in the blink of an analog-inlcined eye, so be sure to stay tuned to the Official Celluloid Apocalypse Site and give ‘em a like on their Facebook so you can stay updated on all of their upcoming fresh-to-death video releases. And who knows? Maybe as time grooves on CA will put their heads together with an American set of magnetic magic movers and get some NTSC glory to go along with their already radical PAL creation… ‘cause that would be pretty groovy.
