My name is Lance Karasti. I have recently returned to Duluth after living in Hollywood for the past 2 years. This was my thesis film. I’m hoping to make a feature film in Duluth, as well as a handful of short films.
The short film is based on a Hollywood rumor about Martin Scorsese. He got the idea to change the color of the blood at the end of “Taxi Driver” in order to get out of an X rating. This film is a fictional version of how he got that idea.
This was shown in the Sound Unseen Film Festival at Zinema 2 and got a great response.
