Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry ๐Ÿ˜ก Rage is a powerful emotion and formidable tool for actors ๐ŸŽญ. . The characters in Mojave Junction — two Old West cowboys played by @theedmarinaro and Race Owen — are inspired by characters from McTeague (1899) by Frank Norris ๐Ÿ“–. . *Our* McTeague (Race Owen) is a study in rage. This frame from the film captures a signature moment that we used in our posters and key art ๐Ÿ–ผ. . Rage heightened the conflict in Mojave Junction โ˜ ๏ธ What emotion helped raise the stakes in your film? . . ๐ŸŽฅ by girlboss DP @tarissegal ๐Ÿœ Find out what happens to McTeague in Mojave Junction on demand @directv @shortstvus @shortstveurope or subscribe @streamlettehq. . . . . . #gratitude #mojavejunction #oldwest #supernatural #western #cinematography #actors #actorslife #actorsofinstagram #cowboysofinstagram #cowboyshit #locationshoot #onlocation #mojavedesert #sanddunes #sergioleone #hplovecraft #erichvonstroheim #indiefilmmaking #filmmakinglife #shortfilms #setlife #setlife๐ŸŽฅ #filmproduction #productionlife #directing #filmdirector #producing #filmproducer #supportindiefilm
Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys (unless, of course, they’re playing one in a film) ๐ŸŽถ alternate lyrics ๐ŸŽถ Pictured here, one of our cowboys on a giant sand dune during filming ๐ŸŽฅ. .  With all due respect to Ed and Patsy Bruce (and Waylon and Willie), the cowboys in Mojave Junction have things a touch worse off than in the song. Stranded in the Mojave Desert without water or food, betrayed by a deranged horse and hunted by something sinister out of HP Lovecraft, their chances of survival are slim โ˜ ๏ธ. .  Shout out to our actors @theedmarinaro and Race Owen (pictured) for braving the desert heat in 19th Century cowboy costumes designed by @medinarosalida from @westerncostumecompany and @universalstudioscostumes ๐ŸŽฌ. .  Our cowboys definitely looked the part ๐Ÿœ How did costumes help bring characters to life in your film? . . ๐Ÿ“ธ by @medinarosalida ๐Ÿ’ƒ Find out the fate of our cowboys in Mojave Junction on demand @directv @shortstvus @shortstveurope or subscribe @streamlettehq. . . . . . #gratitude #mojavejunction #supernatural #western #oldwest #cowboysofinstagram #cowboyshit #cowboystyle #costumedesign #costumedesigner #westernstyle #westernwear #willienelson #filminglocation #onlocation #mojavedesert #sanddunes #sergioleone #hplovecraft #setlife #setphotography #productionstills #indiefilmmaking #directing #filmdirector #producing #filmproducer #filmproduction #shortfilms #supportindiefilm
Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art | Ralph Waldo Emerson ๐Ÿ–ผ We’re grateful for the beautiful key art developed for our film. .  There’s nothing like a great movie poster, right? A lot of us grew up on Drew Struzan’s legendary poster art for movies like Star Wars, Back to the Future and Indiana Jones. So, we wanted to make something similar to help promote Mojave Junction ๐Ÿœ. .  The process began with abstract paintings by Barb Owen to explore background color palettes and textures. We chose a rusty orange piece that felt “western” to us, layering key moments from the film and other objects, like the text and compass, to help tease the story. We think the finished piece evokes a sense of high stakes and (hopefully) a little nostalgia for the Old West ๐Ÿด. .  Like great movies, great posters capture something fundamental about its characters and leave you wanting more ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐ŸŽฌ What’s a classic movie poster that you think rocks? .

When life gives you giant sand dunes, you make giant sand dune *slides* ๐Ÿ™Œ Our girlboss producer @healthallie demonstrates the proper technique in this location scout photo. . . (Emmy Award winning) girlboss that she is, Allison wore many hats on Mojave Junction, including producer, script supervisor, catering and craft services. Not to mention sand dune slide pioneer. We asked her to define girlboss for us. Her reply? ๐Ÿ’ฅ "A girlboss nurtures others while getting sh*t done. She handles pressure with grace and inspires others to do the same. She’s an action-taker, a dreamer, a big picture thinker, and she isn’t waiting on your permission.” . . We’re proud of our Mojave Junction girlbosses, including Allison ๐ŸŽฌ DP @tarissegal ๐ŸŽฅ costume designer @medinarosalida ๐Ÿ’ƒ animal trainer @gooddoganimals ๐Ÿด and publicist @deirdrelopianpr ๐Ÿ™…‍โ™€๏ธ Tell us about the girlbosses who made your film rock. . . ๐Ÿ“ท by @doctorjean ๐ŸŽž See Allison’s girlboss production of Mojave Junction on demand @directv @shortstvus or subscribe @streamlettehq . . . . . #gratitude #mojavejunction #girlboss #girlbosses #girlbosslife #womeninfilm #filminglocation #locationscout #mojavedesert #dumontdunes #sanddunes #supernatural #western #sergioleone #hplovecraft #edmarinaro #producing #indiefilm #supportindiefilm #indiefilmmaking
To light a candle is to cast a shadow | Ursula K. Le Guin ๐Ÿ•ฏ While shooting in the Mojave Desert, our candle was the sun, and boy did it cast shadows โ˜€๏ธ. .  As this cool shadow reveals, the sand dunes at our location were far taller than normal photography can capture. Like giant waves swelling on a frozen ocean of sand, some dunes rose over 30 ft in height. We worked on top of them, below them and in between them, slowly moving our cast, crew and gear over 500 yards into the desert before filming was complete ๐ŸŽฅ. . .  Shooting among these massive sand waves was the biggest challenge in the making of Mojave Junction ๐Ÿœ What’s an insane obstacle your film overcame? . . . ๐Ÿ“ท by @medinarosalida; see how we filmed the desert in Mojave Junction on demand @directv @shortstvus or subscribe @streamlettehq . . . . . #gratitude #mojavejunction #filminglocation #onlocation #mojavedesert #dumontdunes #supernatural #western #sergioleone #hplovecraft #edmarinaro #onlocation #setlife #directing #producing #setphotography #productionstills #indiefilm #supportindiefilm #indiefilmmaking
๐Ÿ‘ฃ Footprints in the sand โ˜€๏ธ Location scouting is a magical time in the movie making process; a time of exploration, possibility & dreaming, where your film begins bursting alive from the page ๐ŸŽฌ .  Our budget didn’t support location personnel, so we did everything ourselves; research into desert climes accessible from Los Angeles & taking an advance team three hours out into the middle of nowhere to explore & dream; while there, we discovered the quiet magic of the Mojave Desert & knew we’d found the perfect location ๐Ÿœ .  Mojave Junction was shot entirely on location in the Mojave Desert’s Dumont Dunes north of Baker, California ๐ŸŽฅ What’s your favorite location scout discovery story? . . ๐Ÿ“ท by @doctorjean; see how we filmed the desert in Mojave Junction on demand @directv @shortstvus or subscribe @streamlettehq . . . . .  #gratitude #mojavejunction #locationscout #locationscouting #mojavedesert #dumontdunes #supernatural #western #sergioleone #hplovecraft #edmarinaro #onlocation #setlife #directing #producing #cinematography๐ŸŽฅ #indiefilm #supportindiefilm #indiefilmmaking #canon5dmarkiii

๐Ÿœ On a Dune & a Prayer ๐Ÿ™ In my director notes for Mojave Junction, I reflect on the challenges of shooting on location in the Mojave Desert, but also its strange magic โœจ .  After the dust (& sand) settled, we survived, made a fun movie honoring Sergio Leone & HP Lovecraft, & played some cool festivals. Watching the film, it’s clear the most potent magic is in the spectacular cinematography of our amazing girlboss DP @tarissegal ๐ŸŽฅ .  Mojave Junction has a special place in my heart โค๏ธ Who’s the girlboss making magic on movies with you? .
