Intense New Documentary – Scrapper
by L.A. Filmmaker Stephan Wassmann
A Mini-history of Twan and Stephan Wassmann
Stephan Wassmann is a good friend of mine. He and I met when we were both working on our very first feature film together when we were in our early 20’s. It was an ultra-low budget piece of crap called “Warlords From Hell”, produced by B-movie mogul Roger Corman, co-starring Robert Patrick in his first movie role (best known as the evil liquid robot man in Director James Cameron’s Terminator 2). Stephan and I have remained friends over the years and have kept tabs on each other’s endeavors. Stephan was one of the director/cameramen for a project that is still on the shelf, waiting for ME (Twan) to get off my ass and make happen: the 1999 Burning Man Voodoo Opera – Le Mystere de Papa Loko. Absolutely amazing footage.
Get a glimpse of our explosive new documentary “SCRAPPER”, which takes you inside a uniquely American outlaw realm… right where you least expect it.
There’s a 3 minute and a 1 minute trailer. We’d love it if you posted a comment if you don’t mind taking the time. We’re trying to generate as much buzz as we can, so feel free to forward the link to friends.

One of my favorite people in the world just happens to be one of the most talented opera singers known to humanity. Diva Marisa Lenhardt not only delivers the sonic goods, but she’s incredibly easy on the eyes as she effortlessly performs feats of aural magic and beauty.
The piece had a rarefied, otherwordly quality that Lenhardt drew out with soaring ease.

The Burning Man Opera Connection
Christopher Fulling, one of the founding directors of the Art Monastery, and Twan have a history in that they were both involved with the Burning Man Opera, which was a major event at the Burning Man Festival from 1997 through 2002. Christopher served under master artist and sage Pepe Ozan as director, co-writer and co-producer, and Twan as co-producer. Visit the Burning Man Opera website for the history of this amazing (and sorely missed) experiment of cooperative art, community participation, and multi-composer musical scores… and a cast of thousands!
