Kino-Edwards Picture Show (a Web Series)

The Kino-Edwards Picture Show is an anthology web series that re-creates iconic Hollywood movie scenes.

In my living room.

Using whatever props and costumes I have lying around.

All roles have been recast with women playing the (always juicier) men's roles -- as a comment on gender tropes in classic Hollywood cinema and how those reflect a changing America, but also because that's really fun.  The genre of the original films have been changed (to match the costumes and props on hand).  Shot on iPhone 5s.

The submission Vimeo link includes "Maltese Falcon", "Diner", "Double Indemnity", and "Rushmore."

The entire ten-episode series (approx. 35 minutes) includes scenes from Rushmore, Tootsie, Miracle on 34th Street, Diner, Maltese Falcon, Miller's Crossing, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Blade Runner, Goonies, and Double Indemnity.

Director Biography - Jay Wade Edwards

Jay is the writer/director of the beach party rock ‘n’ roll monster movie, Stomp! Shout! Scream! (2005), which premiered at the Austin Film Festival & Screenwriters Conference. The Austin Chronicle said, “Stomp! Shout! Scream! does it better than American International Pictures ever did… as much fun as an episode of Hullabaloo-- snappy bouffants, earnest braniacs, hippy-hippy-shake and all.” The film has gone on to screen at over thirty film festivals. Awards include Best Feature at the Toofy Film Festival (Colorado), The Magnolia Independent Film Festival (Mississippi) and the Sweet Onion Film Festival (Washington). The film was also nominations for Best Cinematography and Best Set Design at the B-movie Film Festival (New York). In 2009, the film had a short theatrical run by Monogram Releasing and was re-packaged for release on DVD as "Monster Beach Party A Go Go" by Indican Pictures.
Jay is also well-known as Editor and Producer of the animated series “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” for Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim from 2000-2012. He also served as Supervising Editor and Producer on Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters (2007), which premiered on 950 screens in April 2007. Premiere Magazine called it, “the most successful full-on surrealist film since Bunnel and Dali’s 1930 L’Age d’Or.” A professional television and film editor since 1991, Jay’s credits also include documentaries for CNN and TBS, Cartoon Network’s “Squidbillies”, “The Brak Show”, “Space Ghost Coast to Coast,” and The Disney Channel’s “Gravity Falls” and “Wander Over Yonder”.
Jay Edward’s filmmaking career began when he wrote, directed, and edited three short science fiction films, known collectively as The Monster Trilogy (1998-2000). The Monster Trilogy has been shown in film festivals from Liverpool, England to Ontario, Canada to Austin, Texas, garnering enthusiastic reviews, including, “One of the funniest and most loving salutes to Z-grade films ever made… There is no blood or gore, just an audience in stitches. And rightly so!” (filethirteen.com).
Jay also co-directed and edited Y’all Come! The Hell Hole Swamp Festival (2002), a documentary profiling Jamestown, South Carolina, home of the annual Hell Hole Swamp Festival. The film screened in ten film festivals, including The Rural Route Film Festival in New York City, The Maryland Film Festival, and Detroit Docs, garnering two Best-of awards.
In 2011-12, Jay partnered with Dad’s Garage Theater to direct and edit several short films, including a music video for a sweet country love song entitled “Rusty Trombone”, which garnered the Best Music Video Award at the 2011 Los Angeles Comedy Festival.
Jay lives in Los Angeles, CA, currently works for Disney TV Animation, and is polishing-up several monster movie scripts.
