PRODUCTIONS

At Fuzz on the Lens, feature films have long been our bread and butter.  Don’t get us wrong, we love shorts, music videos and everything else involving a camera, (even live performances) but features are close to our heart.  Way before this was ever a business to us (like ages in the single digits) we were grabbing cameras running around the neighborhood and making full length movies. Today things are a little different, but the passion remains the same.

FIRST SAMURAI IN NEW YORK

IMDb  |  WATCH 

Shot in conjunction with Forerunner Films and Director/Producer Justin Ambrosino; this short film that looks to become a series, is set in 1883 and tells the story of a Japanese-born woman, trained as a samurai, that emigrates to New York hoping for a better life. Instead she finds racism, violence and the need to defend the innocent.

The film is completely period accurate and was shot entirely at Staten Island’s own Historic Richmond Town in a very short time, despite a fluke blizzard hitting during production. The film stars Maho Honda, Gabe Fazio, Mike Houston and even features our very own Robert Privitera.

HALLOWEEN 60

IMDb  |  WATCH  |  SIDE BY SIDE COMPARISON

It’s the year 2038 and Michael Myers has returned to Haddonfield once again to finish what he started 60 years ago. Now at the ripe age of 81 the man once known as the “Shape” is out of shape, but is somehow still feared by all. Watch as he faces off against Laurie Strode, one last time, again, maybe…in this shot for shot recreation of the 2018 Halloween trailer.

This spoof trailer is a painstaking recreation of it’s predecessor. This attention to detail coupled with a deep knowledge of the franchise, quickly drew the attention of fans and allowed the parody to go viral. With reactions and reviews coming in from all different corners of the world wide web.  Even from the real films writers Danny McBride and David Gordon Green as well as one of it’s stars Rhian Rees.

Unable to recognize the faces of even those closest to her, Hanan’s world has been turned upside down and her identity lost.

Also featuring Brielle Von Hugel who was an American Idol Finalist at just 16 years old.

Fuzz on the Improv

Fuzz on the Lens has a growing tradition of sell out crowds that all began with Fuzz on the Improv.

Heading back to our roots at Monsignor Farrell High School, we were invited to organize an improv show, hosted by Michael Leavy and featuring fan favorites such as Jason Leavy, Matt Burns and Michael Carrone.

This show was followed shortly thereafter with another smash hit at the Varsity Club featuring stand-up from Vic DiBitetto, Freddy Rubino, Craig Loydgren, Spike Grant and Kyle Mullins.

Fuzz Comedy Nights

Whether they are in front of a screen or a stage, we love seeing a happy crowd.  So we teamed up with our friends at the historic St. George Theatre and sponsor Get Hard starring Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart and Alison Brie to put on another improv / stand-up performance for a sell out crowd. We also gave them a chance to meet our Staten Island Clown (see more below).

After there was such high demand for the first show, we had to quickly follow it up with another. It also went off without a hitch in front of a packed house.

Publics

We all know what it’s like to go to school, but we don’t all know what it’s like to work at one. This mockumentary gives you an inside look at the inner workings, relationships and primarily the dysfunction of Public School 43-9.

Describing who, or what the Staten Island Clown is is a tricky thing. As it does on this page, it falls somewhere between a live performance and scripted feature film.  With the audience being anyone with access to the internet and them being able to follow along with the story as it unfolds in real time.

Starting with a simple photograph of a clown roaming the streets of Staten Island, things escalated quickly. From individual accounts, to local newspapers to pop culture giant BuzzFeed, the freshly dubbed siClown was a global viral sensation in just 3 days.  At the peak of the frenzy, the siClown was revealed to be our creation on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show.

From there he went on to spend time with celebrities like The Impractical Jokers (Sal Vulcano and Brian Q Quinn) Robert Englund, Vic DiBitetto, Jim Kerr (Q104.3) and many more.  As he quickly became a celebrity in his own right, appearing at parties and events as well as promoting businesses and posing for countless photos with fans.
