Armageddon Blvd. was originally filmed as Shotgun Blvd. in 1996. This version of the film was screened at the 1997 American Film Market but was not released at that time. In 1998, Julie Strain and Kevin Eastman were added to the cast and additional scenes were filmed. The title was then changed to Armageddon Blvd.
In 2007, Scott Shaw went back to the original footage and reedited the movie, adding never before seen footage. This version of the film is titled, 9mm Sunrise.
A number of scenes for this movie were filmed on Hollywood Blvd. and above Hollywood Blvd. at the legendary Broadway Building.
Here is a description for 9mm Sunrise, written by an anonymous source, which provides an ideal depiction of all three films.
9mm Sunrise is a 2006 action-adventure film that was directed by Scott Shaw. This films stars Scott Shaw and Conrad Brooks.
9mm Sunrise follows its lead character, Jack Quick, as he foils the plans of two battling gang lords who are attempting to start a gang war on the streets of Hollywood, California.
As is apparent in all Scott Shaw films this film follows a non-linear storyline and presents images of Hollywood, California, including the Hollywood Sign and the Capital Records Building. Several of the scenes for this film were shot on Hollywood Blvd. at night. This film also presents scenes filmed in Los Angeles Union Station. This railway hub was built in 1939 and is considered to be, "The last of America's great rail stations.” It was created in an art deco style of architecture and is a very visual location that has been featured in many films and music videos. Union Station is also a commonly presented location in the films of Scott Shaw.
This film is riddled with the unexpected characters, storyline twists, and the music video style edits apparent in all Scott Shaw films. One character is a human Rag Doll that walks as if she has no bones. Also included in the characters of this film are a Biker, a Vampire, a Prostitute, and several assassin characters. Shaw frequently references all of these characters in his films.
This film is considered a, "Zen Film," in that it was created in the distinct style of filmmaking formulated by Scott Shaw known as Zen Filmmaking. In this style of filmmaking no scripts are used.
