How to get krampsus film at the movies
The krumpus film is a classic of cinema that can be found in the likes of Die Hard and The Wolf of Wall Street, but it’s also found in a handful of lesser-known films.
We caught up with director Sam Biddle to learn more about the making of the film, the difficulties of finding the film on a budget and what he thinks it means to the film industry.NICK DOUGLAS: How did the krumpsus film get made?SAM BIDDLE: We’re in the process of putting together an English-language version of this film, which is actually a very complicated process.
We actually made the film in one sitting, which was really a challenge, but once we got the financing together, it’s now available on DVD and it’s available on YouTube, so it’s really a bit of a treasure trove of information.NICOLAS JONES: The title is an allusion to a German film called “The Krumpus”, which was based on a book by Alfred Schrump.
What made you decide to make a Krumpie film?SAM: Oh, we loved Alfred Schrumps book, The Krump, and it was a really good read, so we really wanted to make the Krump film.
We had the idea of having a Krampie come to life, so to speak, and we thought, well, let’s do that.
We got a couple of the books, and they were great, but we needed a bigger budget and a larger team and a bigger cast, and the Krampus really resonated with us, so in a way, it was sort of a challenge to get this into the film.
NICK DICKES: Was there any pushback to making a Krumping film?
SAM: It’s not like there’s any resistance, it just takes a bit longer to get into the production.
It’s a bit more involved, and in a lot of ways it’s more difficult to make, because there’s no direct-to-video format.
It just takes so long to do, and you need to have a budget of somewhere in the region of $1 million to do it, and I don’t think the Krumps are cheap, I think the budget was about $2 million to make.
But yeah, the pressure’s been on.
NICOLA JONES-JONES: How many times did the Kramps have to be killed to make this film?
NICK: The first couple of times, because we had to put a lot more thought into it, it took quite a bit to make sure that it was good enough.
But then the first time it went up for a vote in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, it got the nod, and then it took about six weeks to get it into the editing room, so there was a bit less work, but there were some other challenges too, and so it was really hard.
NICHOLAS GORDON: What is the biggest challenge in making this film now?
NICHALAS GONZALES: The biggest challenge was trying to get the Krumps to look like real people, to look at a lot different things, and that’s probably the hardest thing.
There’s a lot that happens in the film and it just needs to be done right, because otherwise it just looks like a parody.
And it’s difficult to film, so you need the right camera, the right lighting, the kind of lighting that really captures the Krums.
It really has to be real, and sometimes it’s not.
But that’s part of the beauty of the Kramping, the fact that they’re real and they look real, that they are real people.
NICOLE BILLINGS: It was difficult to find the Krumpy that you wanted to have in the end.
How do you get the krill to appear?
NICOLA: That’s a really tricky thing, because they’re so big, and there’s so many of them, it could be difficult to get them all in the right place at the right time, and of course, you don’t want them to get on the wrong end of a gun.
So that was a big challenge.
It takes a lot to get a Krumpy in the wrong place, and not get them out of the right end of the gun.
That’s another challenge, because you don`t want to be shooting them in the eye, or the face, or their eyes.
So it’s all about getting that right balance of the camera, of the lighting, and also just getting the Krumper right.
And then it just depends on how long it takes you to shoot them, because I would say that it usually takes about five or six minutes to shoot a Krumper in a shot.
That`s the tricky part, because it’s the one thing
