EGOFEST STARTS FRIDAY! For the third year in a row, TILT director Holbrook will present a dazzling array of independent short films at Egofest in Brainerd, Minnesota. The event will take place at The Chalberg Theatre at the Central Lakes College on March 18th and 19th. No, Egofest isn’t near a big city (Minneapolis is [...]
Last summer Phil, Julie & Jessica helped out on the set of Travis Legge‘s indie horror flick ‘Raymond Did It.’ Now Travis is gearing up for the world premiere in his hometown of Rockford, IL, on Friday, February 11th. In ‘Raymond Did It’, developmentally delayed Raymond is blamed for the accidental death of his brother [...]
As some of you are already aware, the TILT Team received a Christmas present this year. It was all wrapped up in paper, with a bow and everything. Jesse from Brainerd Lakes Beer hand delivered the package to my (Phil Holbrook‘s) home – talk about personalized service! I was surprised and excited, so I tore [...]
This week the TILT team is proud to release the 1st of our four TILT shorts. We crafted the shorts to accompany the feature as a way to give a little more insight into a few of the non-lead characters and as a none-too-stealthy excuse to spend more time with our talented actors and crew. [...]
All of the TILTtheTown bios = FINISHED! Hooray! TILTtheBeginning: When Jessica came up with this idea last year (WAY before we started our Kickstarter campaign), we thought it would be fun (it was) and we thought it would be a great way to draw friends and fans to the project (it was.) One thing the [...]
The TILT teaser trailer is a tease in more ways than one. She’s been flaunting herself all over the Midwest these past few weeks. First, she did a strip tease while hula-hooping at Flyway Film Festival in Pepin, Wisconsin. Next, she showed up scantily clad and sucking on a lollipop in Duluth, Minnesota at an [...]
Our friend Nate Phillips visited the set of TILT back in September as part of his “thank you” gift for contributing to the film fund raiser. Wanna know how it went? Huge thanks to Nate and Sarah for sharing their talents. And just for the record… Do you have a story about YOUR brush with [...]
Our friends, colleagues, and family members are giving us really positive feedback about our new TILT teaser trailer. It definitely feels good to hear good things about our work, but we decided to secretly film audience member reactions at the trailer at Flyway Film Festival to show you what people REALLY thought. And these faces [...]

Here we are, half way through the 9 Days of TILTness and almost to the unveiling of the TILT teaser trailer at the Flyway Film Festival. The other link of the day that I mention in the video is for Gregory Bayne’s movie, Person of Interest, and the cool POI t-shirt I am wearing in [...]
Well, two people guessed right on this one, so we had to go to the hat. However, when picked out of the hat… both names came out. So we’re going to send a One Eyed Pike Beer t-shirt to both of them. And the winners are…. drum roll please…. Sherry “Cosmo” Cummings & Lucas McNelly!! [...]

Hello, everyone! This is the beginning of “The 9 Days of Tiltness.” Enjoy. Ready for the 2nd day of TILTness?
Many local businesses helped out during the filming of TILT. One of them was the makers of One Eyed Pike beer, a local brewing company. You can find them here or on facebook. For kicks, we are giving away one of the One Eyed Pike beer t-shirts they so kindly gave us. Watch the video [...]
Last week we celebrated our TILT actors. Now it’s time to give our TILT techies some love. It takes a lot of people to make a film well, and not just any people will do. You need dedicated, hard-working folks who are smart, talented, and able to balance intense bursts of busy-ness and long periods [...]
Now that TILT is wrapped, it’s time to play with behind-the-scenes footage. We hope you’ll enjoy the first in our series of videos about the people involved with the film. Today’s subject: TILTtheActors. Phil searched high and low for this cast, and we were lucky enough to end up with a group of actors who [...]
Anyone who has ever been on a movie set knows that there is a lot of waiting. There is a lot of working, too, but it all happens in fits and starts. The cast and crew take turns working furiously to make each others’ jobs worthwhile. During the TILT production, we tried to make the [...]
