The Hitcher at Thrillema

We would like to invite all Halifax and surrounding area locals to a very special benefit for David Brunt, who you know as the original Hobo from the trailer:

Park Lane Empire Theatres on Spring Garden Rd.

4 PM with a $10 Suggested Donation

Rutger Hauer will introduce the film and hold a Q&A session afterwards.


More Blood, More Heart

Jason Eisener had this sheet of paper stuck to the back of his monitor for weeks before principal photography even started on this film. We’re well into Week 5 now, and looking back, every single part of this mantra has been followed almost religiously.

Here’s a few more pictures to give you a peek inside the Hobo With a Shotgun universe:

Here’s another video to show you some of the crazy amazing stuff we’ve been up to. Special thanks go to Henry and Zane, and the Blood Truck.


Photo Recap

We are now in week four of production, and I think everyone on set shares my sentiment that time’s gone by way too fucking fast. There’s still a week and change left, and tons more insane shit to shoot, so we’ll have our Hobo fix for a bit.

Here’s some kick-ass snaps from the past week:
