New “Celluloid Soul” poster for distribution

by Mark Pirro    • May 17, 2019

The distribution company that has picked up “Celluloid Soul” decided to make a new version of the poster. As you may recall, my version suggested a bit more of a drama. This version appears to look a little more like a quirky comedy. Since distribution is not my strong suit, I guess we’ll just accept  [ Read More ]

Some of you have asked how we did the black and white effect in our film “Celluloid Soul.” There were many different processes to achieve this effect – some high tech, some low tech. Although we used various techniques throughout the movie, here are two examples of what we did.

by Mark Pirro    • October 17, 2018

Since Deathrow Gameshow got re-released in 2016 by Vinegar Syndrome, we’ve been finding new reviews popping up here and there.  Here is a new one by a site called “Noiseless Chatter.”  I have to say one thing.  The reviews from 2016 forward have been a lot more pleasant than the reviews from 1987.  I wonder  [ Read More ]

by Mark Pirro    • July 18, 2018

Did anyone watch the hearing of FBI agent Peter Strzok from July 12th?

This was a little video we put together after it dawned  [ Read More ]

So what do we do when we’re between feature films?  What do we do when we are out of ideas for new movies?  Why, we shoot commercials, of course.  We just finished shooting a new commercial for a product called “Real Good Food’s Pizza and Enchiladas,” utilizing Pirromount regulars Bill Devlin (Rectuma, Rage of Innocence),  [ Read More ]

I’m sad to report yet another death in the Pirromount family.  This one hits quite close to home because Tom McDonald, who died December 8th, 2017 of ALS, was literally the one responsible for the formation of Pirromount Pictures.  Let me explain: in 1969, when I was still in junior high in Ithaca, NY, my  [ Read More ]

Pirromount’s Fun With Politics

by Mark Pirro    • December 1, 2017

Sometimes, when we’re between feature film projects, we like to reflect on life with short videos.  On December 1st, 2017, President Dotard’s early campaign manager Mike Flynn pled guilty to the felony charge of lying to the FBI, which is another brick dropping in the scandal of the administration of the 1st fake president of  [ Read More ]

Uncertain Movies for Uncertain Times

by Mark Pirro    • October 31, 2017
