Its a Wonderful Trek

The Outlaw Josiah B

A few old college pals contacted us a while back with an idea to shoot a Titular Head* style short film to take back to the Grinnell Reunion Weekend. We jumped at the chance.

Nick traveled to Grinnell with the film’s creators – the Janson siblings: Tor, Per, and Lara – to direct, shoot, and play the villian. Jeremy edited and did the sound design (leaning on the classic work of Ennio Morricone).

The film premiers tonight in Grinnell, but you can watch it below. Fair warning: if you didn’t attend Grinnell, you might not get many of the references.

Watch for the stellar guest appearance of Grinnell Professor (and Nihilist?) Erik Simpson.

* Titular Head is a Grinnell College tradition with a long, storied history, evolving sometime in the nineties to a student film festival celebrating, primarily, Grinnell in-jokes.
