Director R.J. Adams takes us behind the scenes of his feature film “Fatal Crossroads” and offers great insight and advice to both filmmakers and actors including the importance of having a great 1st Assistant Director like Stupid Face’s own Shaun Jaeger Kartt.

Sadly Mr. Adams passed away during filming. He will be missed by all whose lives he touched.

Stupid Face Productions’ Shaun Jaeger Kartt linked up with director/producer Donald Leone of Blvck Tvlip to create a 1950’s inspired music video/short film for super talented singer songwriter Jackie Paladino.

Check out a few stills below. Release is planned for the end of March. Stay tuned!
