Update 2076 Olympiad
21 March 2008 | by (Florida, United States) – See all my reviews

2076 Olympiad is an unrated film, reviewed in Chicago by Variety. By todays standards it would probably be an "R." There was a year long fight with the MPPA about a rating that is a story by itself. It was my first attempt at making a fictional feature length film.

2076 Olympiad was picked up by Cannon Pictures originally and previewed in a number of locations, but did not do well up against a similar comedy Groove Tube that came out at the same time. There seemed to be room for only one. We got the film back from Cannon and tried another Distributor, Cambridge Films, and they previewed it in a couple venues including George Town in DC. Ultimately we got the film back from Cambridge as well.

The film is essentially a mockumentary and satire of television coverage of sports and the Olympics in the year 2076 when even Sex has become a sport. It is presented as 90 minutes of TV coverage complete with commercials, promos, news, and PSA's. The main hosts for the events include Sandy Martin (no relation) and another commentator who sounds like Howard Kosell. Other Actors in the film have gone on in the industry.

In 2076 no one actually has sex anymore, they transmit their emotions electronically to machines that create simulated non-explicit images of the encounters for replay.

2076 Olympiad had it's moments but in was episodic and needed a unifying character or plot to tie it all together. The humor is bawdy, and there is some nudity but no explicit sex. Probably if there had been the film would have been more successful. As it is the films humor is mostly slapstick and sophomoric but entertaining at times. Looking back it could have been edited a lot tighter.

It was shot in 35mm, in Philadelphia in 2 weeks. The budget was small but production value was very good and the film looks like it had much higher budget.

I transfered the 35mm film to video in the early 90's but the video master and 2 VHS copies have been lost. I have 2 35mm release prints and am thinking about doing another transfer to a digital format for DVD if there's enough interest to warrant the cost.
