THE MADCAP THREE - FINALLY RELEASED ON-LINE!
Produced/ Directed/ Written by - Brian Sarvis - Joe Carabeo
In 2005 before the era of HD and Kickstarter, on a budget of nothing but their wits, Joe Carabeo and Brian Sarvis, today the producers of ONE-SHOTS.com , set out to create their first long form film called, THE MADCAP THREE. An ambitious multilayer crime noir story produced in and around the city of Richmond Virginia, is finally released on-line in its entirety.
An accidental murder of a former associate sets the tone of the night that will change the lives of everyone. Filled with characters with love and no mercy, The Madcap Three spares nobody in its tale of dark romance, crime noir and twisted reality. It’s a journey that takes you from the alleyways of the bad side of town to the dark forest hills where people disappear. When the sun rises, no one will come out clean.

RUNNING TIME - 62 min
It’s been almost 9 years since Brian Sarvis and I produced this movie… When we produced this film there was no HD, this was no Indiegogo, no kickstarter or any self funding, there was barely internet, social media like facebook or twitter, we didn’t have websites, we just had making films. AND at the time, Brian Sarvis and I didn’t have a clue compared to what we know now now that we’ve been producing and working on films for almost 9 years! But still… We were on the tail end of our schooling and fresh into our film making careers, and there’s just something about our complete reckless assault on making movies back then that was pure passion driven and free from the confines that we’ve run into today. Sorta miss it.
It almost seems like a whole lifetime ago. But watching this movie now (it’s been years truthfully…) this film is pretty freaking bad ass. I’m not just saying that cause we made it, but it surprised me after just watching it now how vicious it is. Vicious as in “I can’t believe we did that!” And not in the shock value, blood and guts way. I’m also surprised with the writing and how twisted and black noir we were able to make this movie on a nothing budget. Its a pretty insane and fun movie. I’m still surprised about how many names I was able to create for the story and how many inside Easter eggs that I planted all over the film.
Last but not least, THE PERFORMANCES!!
After just watching it now on-line, my mind is blown away about how amazing all the performances are. All the actors made these characters amazing and memorable. There are some serious great moments in this film and it would do no justice at all by listing them you must watch it for yourself.
So, officially, and on the record HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that helped make this movie possible. There is a super huge list at the end of the film too and I know I probably already said all my thank yous 8 years ago. But to the cast and pure skeleton crew, I still can’t believe we pulled this off! I’m happy everyone else in the whole world can watch our work now instead of just the limited run of dvd’s that were produced. I hope everyone shares this.
AND NOW! It wouldn’t be right if I didn’t post an exclusive on the GO ASTRAY page.
