Trivia

In the "Bumping Heads" segment, New York photographer Craig Hamrick can be briefly seen in the bar scene, sitting at a bar, talking to another uncredited extra. This is just before the main characters (one of whom is named Craig, and is played by an actor named Craig) "bump heads" giving the movie its title. Hamrick is a friend of the movie's director, 'Brian Sloan', and he was on the set that day shooting some publicity stills for the movie. Also visiting the set that day was Parker Posey, dropping by to see her pal Craig Chester. See more »

Boys Life 4: Four Play
9 April 2007 | by (New Orleans) – See all my reviews

Of the four short films featured here, the best acting was in the second film entitled "O Beautiful" by Alan Brown, with David Clayton Rogers and Jay Gillespie actors. This film deals with gay bashing and gay teens. A contemporary issue like gay bashing is a subject matter that some would rather not face and will undoubtedly have a bias against this film prior to viewing it, due to the subject matter. "O Beautiful" a complicated high drama poignantly and accurately portrays gay male teenage angst, which is very traumatic and difficult to deal with especially when occurring right after the barbarous heinous act of a gay bashing.

Bravo Alan, David, and Jay! This short should be extended into a full-length film and shown in high schools around the country.
