Sure thing

Edmondites behind the indie thriler ‘iCrime.’

Edmond-based Sure Crossing Films is behind the Internet-fueled thriller “iCrime,” which hits DVD and VOD on Sept. 27.

Sure Crossing principals Richard Ford and Scott Bridges produced the flick, set in the world of vlogs. Here’s the official synopsis: “’iCrime’ begins with the live kidnapping of a popular Internet celebrity and follows an Oklahoma girl obsessed with exposing it as a hoax, catapulting her to her own online celebrity in the process.”

Plus, the page for the film’s YouTube trailer mentions the phrase “sex tape.” Now you’re interested, right? —Rod Lott

Some Dick is going to trash a car

And you're invited!

Wanna be in a music video? Then director Richard Farmer and singer/songwriter Luke Dick, both Okie vets, sure could use you and your aggression. They’re be shooting a vid for Dick’s new song, “Who Am I,” on Sept. 10 in the Film Exchange District.

The concept: beating the crap out of an automobile.

“I’ve always wanted to capture the sledgehammer tradition in a video in some sensational fashion, especially for such a bombastic tune,” said Dick in a press release. “Over dinner, I was telling Oklahoma entrepreneur Chip Fudge about the idea of a video with apocalyptic Okies bashing a car. Being such an ol’ gear head, he got a big smile on his face and said, ‘I want to be a part of that! What better place than the Film Exchange for a film event?’”

Sound like a plan? Here’s the deal:
• Meet at 5:30 p.m. in the parking lot behind Joey’s Pizza, IAO Gallery and the Hart Building, in the 700 block of West Sheridan.
• Donate $5 at the gate, benefiting Bikers Against Child Abuse.
• Be 18 or older.
• Dress in a letter jacket or a prom dress, and in skeleton makeup.
• Read that last one again; you weren’t hallucinating.
• Don’t worry — you’re in good hands. Farmer directed Gnarley Barkley’s “Run” video, after all.
• And until then, enjoy this clip of Dick covering Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi.” Hey, it worked for that kid in Edmond. —Rod Lott

Chicken fight

Lesser prairie chicken populations are dwindling, but some fear an ‘endangered’ designation might stress the economy.


News

Clifton Adcock
A group of energy company officials, agricultural organizations and state officials, along with the director for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, sat down Sept. 8 to talk not so much turkey, but chicken — lesser prairie chicken, to be exact.
