Hi Mark, I was going to buy a copy of the DVD “The God Complex” on eBay but I saw today it’s no longer listed. Could you list it again or contact me via email so I can purchase it? My original copy is worn out. By the way I was an extra in it. Thanks.

Dear Mr. Pirro,

You still stand on the fact that you don’t have any respect for South Park, right? And that you still like Family Guy? Hopefully you didn’t go full-on “Ass-burgers” and 100% retconned everything you said

My family just discovered Nudist Colony of the Dead, and we’re hooked! We try to watch a few low budget horror films a month, and we’re going to have to work our way through your filmography now that we’ve discovered it.

We were completely sold on the music. Is there anywhere that the soundtrack can be purchased, either physically or digitally?

Dear Mr. Pirro, A friend of mine invited me to your Celluloid Soul movie premiere last night. I went in with low expectations because I’ve seen low budget movies and find many of them to be either self absorbed, cheap feeling or just plain boring. Your film took me completely off guard. It touched me in a way that I never expected and brought me to tears by the end. I know so many people who strive to make a success of themselves and for reasons beyond their control don’t succeed. They do everything right but somehow success eludes them.… Read more »

Dear Mark: It was a pleasure to attend your premier of Celluloid Soul last night. Good to see old friends and relatives and met some new ones. I enjoyed the film very much and saw so much of you in the main character. Sort of like your life in review and where these mature years are taking you in filming. We often reflect in our (mine not yours) golden years. The if only’s that one second mistake, that alters our lives forever. This causes some of us living with denial and regret. I feel you that your movie script caught… Read more »

I recently stumbled across Curse of the queerwolf, I was expecting a low budget exploitation movie sold purely on it’s name and not it’s content. I was wrong, very very wrong, it was absolutely bloody fantastic. A self aware comedy that left me aching with laughter and several of my friends at the same time. We do a movie night a couple of times a week and have decided we’re going to try and watch one of your movies every week until we have seen them all and can look forward to the greatness that Celluloid soul must entail. >… Read more »

Sir! brother and I were wondering if the costs of HD remastering and processing exceeds the costs of original production and processing?

Any possibility of a future “definitive collection”? Thank you for making manifest your creative visions.

Lord Pirro,

I have the DVD’s, but would like very much to buy the films again in a digital format. I’m far too lazy to keep changing the discs – though I do have a DVD player that permanently houses a copy of Queerwolf (it still works and I still watch it often… just can’t find the remote).

Amazon digital or the like, something along those lines a possibility?

Jovus bless you,

Lovechop

Hello Mr. Pirro –

My name is Elijah Drenner and I’m working on a new special edition of DEATH ROW GAMESHOW for Blu-ray.

We’d like to know if you are available for an on-camera interview and/or audio commentary to discuss your involvement with the film. Looking to complete this in the next couple weeks. We hope you will consider this request.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Best,
Elijah

HELLO SIR, Im an ex army soldier Iraq war veteran (2003-2004) looking to shoot my first film. I have also been doing music for quit sometime as well. I’ve built really good relationships with some well known musicians and actors over the years touring and being a stunt man for several well accreted films. I’m looking for the best route to take as far as distributing my project. I read your piece on how our songs, and projects are like our babies and I totally agree! I’ve considered the idea of making my film a SAG film, but after reading… Read more »

Hi. I have been a fan of Polish Vampire since seeing it on USA Up All Night many years ago. The DVD looks and sounds fantastic. I am an avid collector of movie soundtracks, and just curious if the soundtrack could ever be made available. Thank you.

Hello Mr. Pirro, I have been a fan of yours for quite some time and have been wanting to get some basic advice from you for a while now, so I am hoping you have some tips for me. I am currently planning to make a very low budget movie between $1,500 to $5,000. What in your opinion would be the best way to obtain distribution for a project that low in cost (if cost matters) Since the landscape is changing for the ways of distribution, how do I get something like a low budget horror distributed globally. Do I… Read more »

Are their different versions of “A Polish Vampire In Burbank” Another website has a version at 84 minutes and your DVD at 80 minutes. Your website says 83 minutes. Are these just typos. I want to get the best and most complete version. Thanks.

I just went fi-core. I know that the name “SAG-AFTRA” is copyrighted. This makes me nervous about putting “SAG-Core” on my resume. On Casting Networks, however, the only check-box for me under “Representation” is “SAG-Core”, so it doesn’t look like I have a choice. “SAG-Core” does have the advantage that people are more likely to understand what I’m talking about. I’d appreciate if you have any thoughts on this dilemma. Thanks!

I’m the guy who asked about the Code Red DVD of Deathrow Gameshow last year. Thanks for answering my question; I’m back with another one… Is there any chance you could put out the commentary you guys made for that movie somehowm like you did with the making of? …Unless the Code Red DVD is still actually coming out, in which case: awesome, any news on that?

Hello Mr. Pirro

I’ve seen some of his movies, and I like his work.
There’s a movie in particular buford’s beach bunnies that I would like to know the name of the song.
Exists in this film, a music of the 80s when it comes to Lauren and Jeeter a love scene.
I want to know the name of the song or the name of the singer ??
I’ve tried to find this song but I could not.

I thank you for answering me.

Hey Mark,

I put together a monthly queer cinema night here in san francisco. It would be awesome to show “curse of the queer wolf” as the mystery feature at our october spooktacular.I have not seen the full thing but i just watched the trailer and think it would be perfect. What would it take to make this happen?

Mark-I forgot to ask you a very important question: How did you get your films on the “Movies Unlimited” website? Did you have to go through a distributor?

Arnold Penerison
Guest

Mark- I’ve seen several of your films over the years (Polish Vampire my favorite). I even have your book that was published in the eighties. Questions: How are you advertising your films? Do you have a day job or is this enough to support you and your family? I’ve struggled for years making Super 8 and now digital films and it’s tough! Even paying actors has become expensive. If you have any helpful tips please let me know. -Thanks Arnie

Hi, Mr. Pirro. This isn’t a question, but I just wanted to tell you how much I love your movies. When I was 12, I ordered a copy of ‘Polish Vampire in Burbank’, and subsequently ‘Curse of the Queerwolf’, and since then you were really my inspiration to pursue film making as a career. I’m 24 now, and I don’t think I would have realized how much I love it if I hadn’t found your movies. 🙂

Hi Mark, I found answer from old post so never mind unless you have another opinion thank you.

Mark Pirro Reponds:
—-If you ever decide to rejoin SAG after going fi core, they’ll most likely assess you with fines/penalties, but if you’re willing to pay, it’s my guess they’ll gladly take you back—

but i have an another question is that if i’m ficore status, some one said we can’t log in to the SAG website. is that true? I always checking residual tracker. is that same situation on SAG Health site too?

Many thanks!

Ah, but what if I’m not a member yet? I was a must-join until I finally booked a SAG commercial. (Sweet!!) The initial person I talked to on the phone said: “You want to start a relationship with us by becoming a Paying Non-Member? Is that really what you want to do?” I said yes and got the ‘sigh of irritated annoyance’ as a response. Then it was all phone numbers that go to nowhere. Special blacklistable paperwork I need to file with X, Y or Z who are not in today and so on and so forth and.. Ok,… Read more »

Hey I was just read your awesome article on SAG versus financial core. Is it really that easy once you’re accepted to go financial core by sending a certified letter to their legal department? I just did a job and every time I try and call them to initiate my status I keep getting the runaround. Help!

Dear Mr. Pirro
what a fabulous site you have! thank you! I want to go fi core as I’m getting offered a lot of non-union films but a woman at SAG threatened me a few weeks ago and said I would be out of SAG and demanded my SAG card back. Then she called when I got home denigrating fi-core and making me feel so ashamed. I still intend on going fi core.My question is do I HAVE TO SURRENDER MY SAG CARD??

With gratitude,

Laurene Landon

Just an observation of minor interest: My wife introduced me this week to the series Orange is the New Black. The series theme song’s melody and tonalities are very reminiscent of the theme in Nudist Colony of the Dead.

Wise council true, but if you just stand by and let someone kick you in the teeth aren’t you just asking?”may i please have another?” He still hunts me..Truth is stranger than fiction. This was bizarre I thought people found a true horror story even scarier He told me of other vict ims.He poured a giant concrete slab in his backyard. The next day there were dead tats, big ones all over it. This was days before i left. Maybe a book would be a better way to say it all. Thank you for you reply.

Forgot one funny thing, this particular sociopath had no sense of humour. He would pretend to laugh, but could not tell a joke. And i tell jokes all day. He had no timing. One time he gave me a listof jokes. I started to notice he was only trying to mimic any emotions and facial expressions. Of course real laughter and joy were as impossible as they would have been for a robot.
