Tex One SheetIMDbTex: Wisdom of the Old West

2015 ♦ 6:51 ♦ produced by Lee Perna & Anna Coughlan ♦ directed by William R. Coughlan

Quentin has a problem: one of his neighbors is gradually taking over the community garden, pushing everyone else out and consolidating her claim. His friend Brent is pushing him to confront the offender, but Quentin seeks the wisdom of Tex — a genuine Old West gunslinger who just happens to find himself in the modern era.

48 Hour Film ProjectTohubohu — now equipped with a largely portable postproduction setup — competed for the first time in the Baltimore 48 Hour Film Project with “Tex” — a comedic modern interpretation of the classic western. The film was created entirely between June 12th through the 14th, 2015, and premiered at the Charles Theatre on Tuesday, June 23rd, earning both an Audience Choice Award and Best Musical Score recognition.

SAG-AFTRA

 

“Tex: Wisdom of the Old West” grew out of the notion of juxtaposing the familiar tropes of the western genre against the often-trivial conflicts of the modern day (not to mention an excuse to cast actor Brooks Tegler as a gunslinger). Screenwriter Anna Coughlan put forth the idea of taking the traditional “lone gunman” character, plopping him down in suburbia with a couple of decidedly non-western buddies, and seeing how well we could take a western storyline and fit it into a contemporary setting. From a typically western plot — a reluctant hero heeding the call to confront a land-grabbing villain — to multiple genre homages (particularly to Sergio Leone’s classic “Man with No Name” trilogy), “Tex” was our chance to revisit childhood fantasies of playing cowboy.
