Introduces The Mission
- This is one of the movies on the Special Features' disc.
These were the first humans they had ever seen...
Finally! Some clips from my first feature, THE BLACK CRYSTAL!
Internationally released, in 1991, this movie has been out of
circulation, for a while. Occasionally, it will pop up on Ebay,
but you can watch the good parts, right here.
We hired cast for $50 per day and shot this in 15 days, in
1989. It looks even more dated than that - more like a 70's
drive-in indie! These Quicktime scenes average 4 - 6 megs.
Boy meets witch. The story goes like this - Will Harper (Yeah,
that's me) picks up a hitchhiker...
Okay, Will calls the cops and gets put on hold. Too nervous
to hang around, he goes to his brother's cabin. Once in town,
Will seeks out Daphne and discovers that Justin left the Black
Crystal, hidden under the Transam carseat.
Following Peter's death in the mysterious car accident, Will
heads down the mountain into Tucson. Daphne finds him and explains.
Will tries hiding his Transam in his best friend's garage. Unfortunately,
the bad guys spot it.
