CrashCam Films: The Summer Tour

Drawing of a man jumping into a mosh pit

Austin-based filmmaker Bob Ray is bringing a little bit of Texas — and a couple of his films — on the road with him for a raucous summer blast across the American west, and parts of Canada. Look for the Down & Dirty Austin Film Tour that’s being co-sponsored by SXSW, the Alamo Drafthouse and the Austin Film Society, when it slams into your town.

The tour is mostly in support of Ray’s recently-completed third feature-length film, Total Badass, which he will be screening, but also look to see his other films Hell on Wheels, Rock Opera and his CrashToons animated series. Total Badass is about a Texas raconteur who struggles to survive his last six months of felony probation and a major financial crisis amongst his estranged family.

Total Badass also happens to be a documentary and its “star,” Chad Holt will make a few special appearances with Ray for Q&A sessions at select screenings. For screenings of Hell on Wheels, Ray’s documentary on Austin’s roller derby scene, Q&A’s will be held with the director and members of local derby leagues in select cities.

The full list of cities that Ray will be stopping in is listed below, although more may be added, so be sure to keep track on the tour’s website. Also, scroll down past the dates to watch the trailer for Total Badass.
