I believe that ‘The Last Beautiful Girl’ is the third feature film we have seen from James Christopher since opening The Monkey Bread Tree Film Awards. Over the last three pictures we have seen: soul, warmth, comedy, sadness, drama… a whole heap of skills and tones. To say that we are fans of his work is an understatement.
Here, with ‘The Last Beautiful Girl’, we have a more candid story. Relationships and people clash, comedy and drama flip flops. The performances are balanced, and easy to watch – unstaged and engaging. Heck – a highlight, besides the lead performance by Derek Babb, is the series of mishaps which performers help carry to reality, like the oily bed sequence and the awkward wedding ‘what are you doing?’ here moment.
The only flaw to this all is that Christopher has yet to be handed the keys to a Hollywood project. He’d be great for it, and we can’t wait to see what comes next!”
Well, four months after the wrap, we have a movie! Thanks again to all of the indiegogo supporters and the cast and crew!
Festival news coming soon, but for now, peep the first glimpse at the movie with the Texas Renegade music video for their song “Drive.”
We’re thrilled to announce that young up and coming artist JEENA TURNER has graciously allowed us to add her song “AUSTIN” to the soundtrack of The Last Beautiful Girl. Jeena has been on our sets since she was in the 6th grade and we’re so excited to have her bring her talent to the movie! Music video to come!

Well, The Last Beautiful Girl production has started!!! it’s been an adventure. A lead change, recasting on the fly and torrential Austin storms have affected the shoot and really added the LABOR to the term “labor of love.” I’ll be honest, its been a test. It’s also important to remember that not all tests are bad. Our previous movie was a smoother ride to be sure, but you learn more about yourself and the people around you when you have to face adversity. We have done that. I know coming out of this, I will be a stronger director and a better leader than I was going in. That makes the experience alone with it.
The thing that ultimately matters, of course, it what’s coming through on camera and it is hilarious and terrific so far. Derek Babb, Morgan Floyd, Shelby Cullinan, Jae McCain, Shelby Surdam, Hannah Holub and Tracey Ely have all brought so much to the process with their timing and their willingness to try new things. I’ve also been tickled to work with Andy Bertelsen as a “bizarro” version of himself. When you go into a movie like this, you hope to get the chance to work with talent you’ve met on the circuit. We got a great scene out of Scot Michael Walker and Anthony Fort. Those two had great chemistry.
The crew has really had to tough out some intense situations. Emily Heifner shooting her first movie has done a great job. Josh Gonzalez, Brendan Johnson and Grace Hathaway have been the rocks that have kept the ship going through some rough storms. It’s not been easy. Indications are, it won’t be. We’ll have to dig deep as a team and stretch ourselves. And thats awesome.
