Chronicles of the Blue Dragon

BEN: The film that was lost is found! We're all familiar with my ancestor Benji Yakishita, the legendary Japansese film-maker. His magnum opus, Chronicles of the Blue Dragon, was deemed lost for years until Dutch archaeologists unearthed a working film print. As his last living relative, I was entrusted with custody of the film, which I completed to the best of my ability.

Length: 14 minutes.

Released: December 4, 2009.

 

I Totally Talked to Her

KEVIN: Two skittish youths agonize over the prospect of manning up and talking to a hot chick.

BEN: Man, I love this movie. It's probably my favorite of my "old school" films. We originally developed it as an audition film for the actress (Rebecca). The idea was to see her act in something before offering her a role in the Nine Minute Love Song feature.

KEVIN: ...but then this little movie ended up being better than the behemoth feature it was meant to prepare us for.

BEN: Yeah. A lot of times, you do your best work when you aren't thinking about it too much.

Length: 5 minutes.

Released: July 15, 2008.

Length: 17 minutes.

Released: July 18, 2007.

 

Nine Minute Love Song

KEVIN: Holy shit, girls!

BEN: Believe it! The greatest accomplishment of my college career, Nine Minute Love Song was a massive leap forward for Blue Dragon Studios.

KEVIN: I think we had an actual budget. A first.

BEN: And we added talent from outside our friend circle (namely Jessica, who remains with us to this day).

KEVIN: There was a mini-team preparing practical effects pretty much the whole time.

BEN: Yeah, the cast and crew were basically sequestered at the location. As prisoners in the boonies, they had nothing better to do than work on the movie.

KEVIN: Everybody loved the movie when it was finished. Whenever someone new came to visit us in college, I think we made them watch it.

BEN: I think it went to my head. After graduating, we made a feature film based on the Nine Minute Love Song premise.

KEVIN: Which put me on imdb!

BEN: Darn tootin!

Length: 26 minutes.

Released: June 3, 2007.

Released: November 12, 2006.

 

The Horrible Suburban Sofa Murders of '96

BEN: A vicious murderer stalks the suburbs. (If you find yourself in an earlier Blue Dragon Studios picture, you really shouldn't leave the couch. Bad things tend to happen.)

Length: 7 minutes.

Released: June 25, 2006.

 

A Man in Black

BEN: A landmark film in Blue Dragon Studios history, A Man in Black tells the story of the Crawshaw Brothers, two small-time grifters whose work brings them into contact with a dangerous hitman.

KEVIN: The ceilings in my childhood home are still stained with fake blood from this shoot.

BEN: A Man in Black is the first of our movies to feature practical effects. It's also one of the first to feature multiple shooting locations and be filmed over a protracted schedule. These seem like small things now, but at the time, they felt big.

Length: 10 minutes.

Length: 2 minutes.

Released: December 21, 2004.

 

Reminiscence

BEN: There were prior films, but Reminiscence is the earliest Blue Dragon Studios movie deemed remotely watchable. Hey, you gotta start somewhere.
