Wall of Trailer Trash

I just got back from meeting with fellow event coordinator Aislinn Tomchak, where we finalized some last details regarding the shooting of the Trailer Trash original content I alluded to last post.

Phrases like “we can just film some tomato ooze” and “I have all sorts of windows; big ones, ones with screens, etc.,” were used, which is definitely indicative of something. Something good, even.

And check out this exciting, small promotional image I took. This stuff is really real.


If you guys could take this and get the entire internet talking about it like Radiohead did in the last three days, that would be great!

Hey Guys, I’m Blogging, Or, The Internet, They Call It Blogging

Hi, NJFA blog readers. Current population: Maybe three.

My name is Peter Van Brunt, one of a few event coordinators for the New Jersey Film Alliance. Which basically has me helping out as much as I can and going to a bunch of meetings. Which is good. Also, I write the newsletter. And now I’m writing this for the blog.

As far as actual news goes, I’m currently working on writing some short, original…things, to be played during our upcoming Trailer Trash event. I don’t want to give too much away yet, but most people have seemed at least vaguely amused at what we’ve come up with so far.

I think we have some good ideas!

Obviously tangential content: This blog was originally, maybe, going to be about how I saw (500) Days of Summer. Except then I didn’t see the movie and instead did nothing nearly as relevant. So, here it is, a total shell of what it could have been.

Also, maybe follow me on Twitter ( if you would like to know what I’m up to, but barely since I’m sure it’s overly cryptic. By percentage, it’s about 50% when I’m waiting in a parking lot, 25% what unhealthy thing I’m currently eating, and 25% posting music items that you probably won’t trust me about.
