Does anyone else notice how pathetic Utica movies are, mostly referring to Mad Angel Productions who have release some of the worst "films" I ever seen. The only film maker in this area who has any potential is that DeAngelo kid. Andy DeAngelo is 17 or 18 and made a full length film with people twice his age, and it actually looks professional and done like a real movie. Unfortunately he won't be in this area too much longer, Hollywood will be callin him up soon. Any thoughts?

I could not agree more. I acted in one of Mad Angels films, but to be honest that creepy filmmaker Shawn Ubell is one sketchy mother f****r. I am an actress and all he would do is hit on every single girl there regardless of her age. He is always disgusting, sweaty, and dirty, I think he works in a garage. Not to mention he is a complete a$$.
Matt from Mad Angel is unprofessional and disorganized but very nice and likeable, I think he only does it for fun and not to make the films good.
I have heard of Andy but have never seen his work but I have heard all good things about it. In fact, the only bad thing I heard about Andy came from Shawn, but apparently Shawn has a grudge on Andy because Andy fired him from his film "Exes" because he didn't want Shawn around the High School girls. I don't blame him, good move, I am sure he doesn't want to be responsible for a child being raped.

Is "Exes" already out? Is it actually decent looking or will it be another Utica flop?

"Exes" looks great. The story is centered around a family dinner with other scenes that take place in a school (I believe its actually Proctor), and other places, though the trailer does not reveal much about the movie. Its far different than the typical horrible horrors and cheesy action films that are made here.

I find it interesting that in Utica of all places people have the balls to have an ego. For Christ Sake as anyone ever watched anything that KID Andy has ever made? I recall a movie that he was making a few years ago that was suppose to be this great thing, I believe it was called Anti-Heroes. Where is this grand film? How can anyone bad mouth Matt at Mad angel films? He finishes what he starts and has 10 or so movies to show for it. Let's not get started on this last abortion Exes. Besides it somewhat talent cast the whole thing was a joke. Mid way through the film, and I use that term lightly, a entire scene was shown twice. The audio was horrible and if anyone manages to sit through this SHORT FILM, That's right, I don't think it hit the 40 minute mark be sure to observe what kind of professional quality allows their work to leave in the credit template. When the actors and actresses comment that they were mortified by watching something they put their time into to create something is wrong. When your actors don't defend your work it's time to quit and go home. I want my 8 dollars and the 30 plus minutes of my life back!!!!

Battledogs apeared on Syfy last spring what most people don't know
It was suppose to be filmed in Utica NY it ended up being shot in Buffalo due to total NON COOPERATION from the City of Utica The mayor and the County Executive ...who could not be bothered to return phone calls
So after establishing Infectious Films LLC Utica NY
The Filmaker went to Buffalo where they bent over backwards ro accomadate them
The Movie Starts Ariiana Richards from Jurrasic Park and Deniss ALLSTATE Haysbert... Kate Vernonn from BAttlestar Galactica
Anyone want to guess at the lost revenue the city missed out on full hotel rooms and retaurants catering and lumber yards for material ?? not to mention the 80 or 89 people employed by the film
Keep up the work Utica politicians

I recently made a movie! Its all about how I treat brothers and sisters from Utica who lie, cheat, steal and hoodwink people into following them. See, for just $100 each (they don't want it showing up on health insurance) I listen to them lie to me about what great people they are and how badly they've been victimized. Not just that they're both rotten to the core evil sob's that place material above life.

So sad that one of them is now facing tragedy in the face and all he can say is "poor me". We both know the illness is getting the wrong one.

I will keep taking their 100's and listening...but I know what both of them are. Theyre lying, coniving, thieves who blame the world for their self developed evil ways.

Watch my video here...its great!

Are there any local guys making porno in U-Town these days? Using local talent? There used to be a couple back in the '80's but I don't know if there are any today.

Shawn's scripts have potential yet end up I hate to say it, ammature and stupid. If he stepped it up, planned it out, didnt hit on potential actresses, and not half ass everything they could be better. Just because you have a fancy camera doesn't mean you're a film maker and charge people $10 to see something than can be make on a cell phone. Movies should immatate life, stories, fantasy's, be timeless and not some half ass idea that was horrible to begin with. Step it up people and make art not crap that you'll regret making 10 years from now.

Utica's actually a popular filming location for adult films. Producers from downstate hire upstate "models" and then use the motels off the Thruway as filming locations. Just check the Title 18 registrations for adult films and you'll see Utica popping up quite a bit.
