In the White Room: with actor Johnny Matte

Sean Stanley

Johnny Matte’s in the house – In the White Room is finally online!  ITWR is a short film we made back in 2008, and was initially screened publicly at the Rakehell Row Movie Night 2008, but in competition at the Buffalo-Niagara Film Festival 2009.  The film finds Johnny Matte down on his luck and looking for work when he comes across a paying ‘white room’ experiment.  This is the second appearance of actor Johnny Matte, his first being Casting Call.

Casting Call: with actor Johnny Matte

Sean Stanley

Johnny Matte has been around the block before, but this was the first time we ever saw him in a film. This film preceded In The White Room: With Actor Johnny Matte , and originally appeared alongside The Weichels on the TV show Rakehell Row produced back in 2008. It is better to watch this film before watching The Weichels, which is posted directly below this blog entry. Sooner or later, I will have the entire episode of the show we hosted posted online. Other segments to appear on the show include: Old Host kidnapping and stuffing in trunk, Rakehell Row roundtable discussion, and interviews with rap groups Black Actors and Ok Cobra (this interview has already been posted online).

The film Casting Call finds Johnny in a peculiar casting audition and is none too impressed by it.

Johnny Matte’s in the house

In the White Room made the annals of IMDb!

"Maybe two bean burritos..."

"Maybe two bean burritos..."

In the White Room: with actor Johnny Matte is a short film that we made back in fall of 2008. It was a good time… a riotous set filled with an abundance of white… which was not without a little chewing tobacco/bacon-gum substitute, accompanied, unfortunately for some, by cakefarts… and even the second appearance of comedian Pat Tiffin in a Rakehell Row presentation; Tiffin also appeared in the television episode Rakehell wrote and directed of London Calling… in which, the short film Casting Call was first seen. Casting Call: with actor Johnny Matte is the first film in the Johnny Matte series, and In the White Room is the second. If you catch the version of Casting Call with the outtakes at the end, Tiffin is riffin.

White Room is 11 minutes long and sees Johnny down on his luck looking for work.

Hey Utah, make that two for Rakehell on the big board.
