Little Richard, Founding Father Of Rock 'N' Roll, Dies At 87

We've lost an American treasure. A Rebel in every sense of the word.

Little Richard is gone.

The originator, the provicator, the architect of Rock N Roll. He was an electric, eclectic, madman. Like an animal out of his cage on the stage and full of an energy you were in awe of. The man could outshine the Las Vegas strip at will.

Dammit. This year is really sucking the sh*t off of the shovel.

Blast some Little Richard everyday, but especially today.

I'm asking EVERYONE to post a Little Richard song on their wall.

No comments, no words. Just music. Just HIS music. It speaks for itself.

The flamboyant music legend, who rose to fame in the 1950s with hits like "Tutti Frutti," was a self-described "architect" of rock 'n' roll.

Friends, I encourage you to support your local artists and Mom and Pop businesses during this tough time.

I took some time and money to support my dear friend and talented photographer/author, Ariniko O'Meara.

She walked every street in Lansing and I was honored to be one of the interviews for her cool City Saunter journey which she made into a book. There's also a book of photos to go along with it.

Both books are beautiful and well-crafted and great additions to any coffee table.

Contact her and support this Lansing artist!

GREAT NEWS! Rebel Pictures is excited to share that both Bequeathed and Low Road are accepted into the Bare Bones International Independent Film & Music Festival!

With the COVID19 pandemic, the festival is pushed back to Oct. and I'm hoping to attend.

I'm really proud of these two films and to share this great news during this tough time.

Congrats to my cast & crew on both of these multi award-winning films which were both made for the 48 Hour Film Project: Detroit in which they both won awards!

Stay safe. Stay tuned. Stay creative.

What a cool post by a fan/friend/supporter of RP.

"I am making a list of locations where I will use my Stimulus deposit. Michael McCallum's Rebel Pictures is one. I will spend $50 in movie rentals. That means a weekend of great productions by a Lansing producer and actor." - Suzanne Love

I encourage all of you to support your indie artists and Mom and Pop places during this difficult time.

As for Rebel Pictures, there are Online Rentals, a Store section and a Donations section on our site.

GREAT NEWS! Rebel Pictures is proud to share that we made a short film, Choices, for CinemaSlice's Quarantine Filmmaking Competition and it won BEST FILM out of 51 submissions!

"Mitch and Charlie are facing a new world after a mysterious sickness has taken everyone they love."

I couldn't have done this without a stellar team of talented folks: Rico Bruce Wade, Eric Shalayko, Lauren Ferebee, Kristian Bringedahl, William C. McCallum and Jason T. Strotheide. Some of them had to work
remotely from home, but we still worked through the limitations and made something really cool and poignant.

We will be sharing the film soon after we add end credits and submitting it to a few other online festivals during the quarantine. I wanted to tease you with the first finished poster while the end credits are being worked on.

Good times on the set of Low Road.
Dude - read your messages and get back to me. It's important!
My wife and I saw Deadbolt at the Bare Bones Film Festival in Muskogee, Oklahoma a few weeks ago. We thought it was a clever and well acted little crime drama. It had a neo-noir feel to it and it kept you in suspense. A tight thriller. Well done!
Amazing the award-winning movies that have come out of Rebel Pictures, right here in Lansing.
Happy Belated Birthday Rebel Pictures!
