After being shot in the head, a petty thug takes bloody revenge on the corrupt New York City cop who tried to kill him - and stole his girl. Brutality has a new name, and it's Mr. Bricks. MR. BRICKS: A HEAVY METAL MURDER MUSICAL introduces tattooed muscleman Tim Dax as Mr. Bricks, an ex-con left for dead in an empty New York City warehouse. Rocked by headaches caused by the bullet lodged in his brain, he pieces together memories - the barrel of a gun...his girl's scream...and eventually, the face of the dirty cop (Vito Trigo, Dark Windows) who pulled the trigger! All he wants is to find his missing girl Scarlet (Nicola Fiore, Miss Cannibal Holocaust, Game Over), and vows to kill anyone that gets in his way...but what if Scarlet doesn't want to be found? Love is murder in this bloody tale of lust, desire, and revenge. Like G. G. Allin meets The Rocky Horror Picture Show, MR. BRICKS will knock you out of your seat with nine head-banging musical numbers, including Motörhead's latest hit, "Outlaw."
Travis Campbell, grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio where he became infatuated with movies and music at a very young age. In 1983, at just the age six of he made his first Dukes of Hazzard episode with his dad's video camera. At that time he also learned how to play the Star Wars theme on his Aunt Lara's piano... technically it was only the first ten notes, but genius as everyone knows cannot be rushed. Skipping ahead, Travis dropped out of high school, went back to high school and played in hardcore bands in the early 90s and rounded out the stellar decade playing in the stellar Cincinnati band Crimson Harbour (no this is not a euphemism for a woman's time of the month) and the band almost got signed to Warner Bros. records had a giant albatross (women, booze) not eaten many of the band members. Meanwhile... Travis worked at WLWT news for 2 years while playing and recording music as well as making movies. Meanwhile... Travis quit the news and went to Wright State University where he majored in film and worked on the Emmy Winning, Oscar Nominated film A Lion in the House, directed and written by Julia Reichert and Steve Bognar. It was at Wright State where Travis made the short film The Amnesia Party which eventually opened the door to... New York City 2007, where Travis started working for Troma Entertainment as their full time editor. The Amnesia Party played at the Tromadance FIlm Festival and was distributed on DVD later that year. During Travis' time at Troma, he eventually met producer Justin Martell (who worked as Lloyd Kaufman's Assistant) and the two developed Mr. Bricks for production. Travis currently still works at Troma (which in Troma years is about 350 years) and is working on his next film and musical projects.
