When the Lumiere Brothers invented the movie camera back in 1895, the first films they made were starring bobbleheads. The brother's intent for the camera was a simple one: to document the epic saga of "the bobblehead experience".
Though in an effort to take the credit for being "the originator of film", the evil Thomas Edison snuck into the Lumiere Brother's workshop one night and burned all the bobblehead celluloid, thereby removing our existence from history. Unfortunately, by the time filmmaking had made its way out to Los Angeles, the brothers had given up their original filmmaking persuits and instead devoted themselves to years of failed assassination attempts on the wicked Thomas Edison.
Since that time, us bobbleheads have largely been forgotten from the cinema, despite us being the original faces on the silver screen. But in an effort to get our stories out to the world once again, we, a rag-tag troup of Bobbleteers, have banded together to create BOBBLEFLIX, a film website devoted to sharing our history that the Lumiere Brothers had started some 122 years ago. Our time has finally come - the age of the bobbleheads is back!
In an attempt to find a filmmaker suitable to bring our stories to life, we first sought out the talents of Christopher Nolan. Unfortunately, he was unavailable – so we went after Christopher Guest (as we find people named Christopher to be highly trustworthy and incredibly talented). The latter was too busy as well. This is when we put out flyers asking for the help of full-time filmmakers. And in doing so, not only was Chris Covell the most qualified of all our applicants, but he shared with us the “inner bobble” that we so passionately want to reveal to the world.
Taking a page from the Lumiere Brother's notebook (*see above for reference*), Chris has made it his mission to tell our stories and share our heart. Joining with Chris has given us hope for the future - a future where "the bobblehead experience" can be made known to the world. It is both his and our dream that through these films, our stories can earn their rightful spot in the pages of history, so that one day, the narrative of the Bobblehead can be just as known and loved as the narrative of mankind itself.
