Live-Action Films

While he is best known for his animations, Andrew Kepple has also created live-action films. This section primarily covers Andrew's films that were at least mentioned on TmsT Films, which was last updated in late 2002 and has been archived in its entirety (except for a single image). Only three of the films can actually be downloaded or streamed, at least to my knowledge.

Canned Slaughter is the first ever "Too Much Spare Time" creation and was filmed by September 1999. This 5-minute can-crushing musical was released online on the occasion of its (approximate) fourth anniversary, as announced in Andrew's diary.

The film The Hairstyle Hunter, made in 2000, was only given a mention on TmsT Films under "Coming soon", but the page received no further updates. It was eventually uploaded to the TmsT YouTube channel in January 2008. Mr Kepple himself appears in this 2½-minute Crocodile Hunter parody.

Jedi Springer is a spoof of both the Star Wars series and The Jerry Springer Show. Various Star Wars characters attend a talk-show and discuss (and fight) about the identity of Luke Skywalker's biological father. The 12-minute movie, which was filmed in 2001 and also includes two adbreaks, was adapted from an earlier short cartoon by Andrew. Read the introduction on TmsT Films for more background info (initially, it says it was filmed in 2002, that has to be a typo).

In December 2003, Jedi Springer was added to the Features page of This Strife. More than one and a half years earlier, the first adbreak and the three main segments were made available online in comic book form, with slightly altered dialogues. On the last page, you can download MP3 files of two parts of the film.

Each of the following four works had a page on TmsT Films, but as far as I know, the films never became available to watch on the Web. I don't know if any of them still exists, be it on tape or in digital form. All available information can be found on the archived pages.

There are many still frames, and in the case of the two ENSOC films, the entire scripts are available. ENSOC stands for Engineering Society and is a student society at the University of Canterbury, by the way. Also, you can listen to the theme song of Jesus the Talking Fish.

The last addition to TmsT Films was Lord of the Ringtones, but that's an animated rather than live-action film, see the Mulletboy section instead.

Films titled Darel Le Grew and That Improv Show: Behind The Scenes were mentioned on the main page of TmsT Films, too. Additionally, a sequel to Jesus the Talking Fish, named Jesus the Talking Fish II: "How To Build Your Own Computer", was mentioned in Andrew's diary in September 2003. Jesus ("Hey Zeus") reappeared as a "voice actor" in the Flash animation Uncle Junkie.

A 25-minute film named Dumbass was edited together by Andrew in February 2004. It contains footage of stunts performed on the campus of the University of Canterbury. You can at least watch its Flash intro, which contains more information and related pics.

For the 48Hours film-making competition, Andrew and some friends created a 7-minute movie in May 2006. Their genre was "Superhero". While the 48Hours website includes many entries from 2006, the film of Andrew's team doesn't appear to be there. According to Andrew, its title might have been Awesome Man. It is presumably part of the DVD that was released after the competition.

TmsT Films also included a short GIF animation called The Lynx Effect, posted on the same day as The Sound of ENSOC page.

In November 2006, Andrew posted a nearly half-minute long video taken at Kelly Tarlton's Underwater World (now Sea Life Aquarium). Well, it's also live-action, so I put it here.

The 1½-minute Flash movie A Very Pokémon Guy Fawkes from November 2003 is essentially a live-action film as well.
