We work with a lot of people in the Texas film scene and during SXSW 2017 I got to see two badass documentaries made by friends of Rooster Teeth. If you're looking for some cool films to tide you over between RT Docs, check these out.
DEALT was produced by our buddies at Ralph Smyth Entertainment (the guys who made Crunch Time) and it's about one of the world’s greatest card magicians, a sixty two year old man who also happens to be completely blind. The movie was great. Funny, entertaining and it even warmed my tiny, cold heart. I thought I felt tears in my eyes at one point but it was actually just a runny nose. But it was the closest I've ever been to crying.
THE SECRET LIFE OF LANCE LETSCHER is a documentary about one of Austin's most famous artists... a guy by the name of (you guessed it) Lance Letscher. This movie does to collage art what JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI did to fish. It made me want to eat delicious, amazing art. And it's absolutely beautifully shot which is no surprise since the Director of Photography was Jason Harter. You've seen Jason's work in a ton of Rooster Teeth shows like RT Shorts, Slow Mo Guys, A Million Dollars But... etc.
Anyway, two great movies made by great people. Give em a looksey.
