Best inspiration for local filmmakers: The Vitale Brothers’ Ignition

REVVED UP: Film poster artwork by Chris Parks, aka Pale Horse.

Ignition starred local metal-man artist/badass Frank Strunk III and featured familiar faces, sounds, and sights. It was styled to perfection and the footage was beautiful. It didn’t matter that it wasn’t the most compelling or original storyline, it was gorgeous and it was ours. The crowd was dotted with local filmmakers like Charlie Diaz, Eric Hunter and Ryan Zarra. To them, and to us, what mattered most about the Vitale Brothers movie was the inspiration it provided.
