(RESERVOIR DOGS vs SNOW WHITE & THE SEVEN DWARFS)

'Reservoir Dwarfs' is our latest mashup of two films into a parodic trailer, following the smash hit success of 'The Tinmanator' (Wizard of Oz vs The Terminator).

Director Biography - Jack Richardson, Shannon Anthony

Jack Richardson & Shannon Anthony trained as actors at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, got married and started Messed Up Movies with filmmaker Rob Fuz. Life as an actor is HARD WORK, so to fulfil their artistic urges they make their own work: writing, producing, directing and acting in their work, which has been seen across the world at many niche festivals - as it tends to be focused on non-traditional, experimental film making.

Director Statement

Reservoir Dwarfs is the second of our parodic-mashup trailers, the first being the very well received 'The Tinmanator' (winner at Geek Fest 2018).

In our trailers we wanted to highlight that many if not all stories share similarities in structure, whilst sending up that the trend in contemporary film seems to be if you've seen the trailer, you've no need to watch the film!

Shot over a single weekend, with no crew, no budget and bad weather - but we wouldn't have it any other way!

An homage to Tarantino, whose work we greatly admire, with a dash of our nonsensical levity for good measure! We present Reservoir Dwarfs!

Please see our extra media for a shot-for-shot scene that didn't make the final edit, and a mystery teaser we put out to hint at the two films identities.
