Film Diary 1

This weekend, BH productions traveled up to Austin for a day to meet friend, Kim Henkel, who introduced us to friends of the late, great Lou Perryman.

Because of Perryman’s tragic death, this film project has become a lot like the previous BH project: John Wayne’s THE ALAMO, which was made after Wayne’s death.

Creating a film about a particular subject, who you cannot film, becomes a strange exercise in exploring negative space: you must go after the people who know your subject best and try to fill in around the empty space their absence has created.

“Lou Perryman” is a film in progress, tracing the life and tall-tales lead by an actor, cult-hero and Texas archetype.
