Welcome!

Hiya Rob!

I'm in the Atlantic City area. I'm about to shoot a 30 minute short (I have the local acting studio, Weist-Barron Ryan, of New York furnishing the professionals I need to shoot this thing). I just checked with Ursela Ryan yesterday who advised me that her assistant is doing a character breakdown and will have the talent complete a script read through to allow them to pick and choose their parts. So, reach out if you want. Maybe I can use the help since I'll be shooting interiors with DV Rack and exteriors without (I guess I'll need a camera operator for the interior stuff so I can work the laptop. I'll have to settle for a Jersey guy since a certain young lady in Idaho won't be able to make this shoot as my "A" cam operator. She'd better be able to make the next shoot or I'll notify her union rep! ;-))

Welcome. Jersey is a great place to shoot movies.

So, Hugh....you're throwing on the guilt then trying to soften it with that "young lady" talk, are ya? Well, it won't work with me. ;) Believe me, though, I'll do everything I can to be there for the next one.

Rob, I don't know your time table or if the move is even certain. But, if it is, I'm hoping you'll take Hugh up on his offer and let me know how it goes. I want to be prepared!

Honestly? You'd have a great time, because he's a great guy. And his screenplay is really good, too! :)

Sweet Talk Will Get You Nowhere

That's right, Lorinda, Dear. Pile on the syrup and whipped cream. Drizzle the honey from the plastic squeeze bear. Throw around the peppermint soap. All of your sweet words will not get you out of your obligation to help make my movie a hit. I'm no fool! I always try to hire the award winning talent! Yes, gentle readers, in case you don't know, Lorinda took home top honors for this last DV Challenge. So yeah, I'm gonna hire the the one woman who's gonna make my movie look great (she also has a dolly crane!). Movie making is a team effort.

My only concern at this point is the difficulty in shooting two scenes: A full moonlit beach at night and a passing thunderstorm at an outdoor cafe. I will think of something but mark my words, I will shoot those scenes. I will make them happen. Practice practice practice.

I'm in NJ as well. Jackson, NJ. Just moved there from Linden, NJ and I commute to NYC for work still... What a drag.

Semi-Jersey Guy

I'm in the Philly suburbs but try to spend as much time as I can at my house in Wildwood Crest "down the shore". I figure I spend almost half the year there . . .weekends and all summer. This June I'll be moving the G5 and 30" monitor there . . . but it's tough to edit on those beautiful summer days when the beach is calling just a few blocks away in one of America's best beach towns! The Jersey Shore Rocks!

Ocean County here

Hey, I just wanted to give a shout out to the Jersey crowd. I've been in Nevada for many years, but I was born in Passaic County and raised in Ocean County. I came west after high school.

I return to New Jersey every summer to visit family. This is not a good thing for them because they usually end up spending their lots of their hard earned cash on me at Great Adventure.

Ocean County

Been in Ocean County most of my life except for a few years out of punishment for bad behavior as a TV news reporter/anchor. Back since the late 80's. commute daily to Trenton.

For those local, I play sax with the Hillcrest Gang, (www.thehillcrestgang.com) any gigs they have at the Red Lion in Brick, I will be there. (cutting back on my playing out due to time constraints)

Welcome Bill! Back in the 1970's I had my first "real" job as tech supervisor for the performing arts center at Ocean County College :-) Have always liked that area, and I still try to get out to Island Beach State park whenever I can.

Hi Boyd,

Your name is kinda familiar. I attended OCC from 77-79. Journalism courses etc.
I actually attended the last Valhalla... remember that?

Hmm... I musta missed that because I don't know what "Valhalla" is (aside from the mythical one ;-)

I was working at OCC a few years before you actually - 1972-73. Those were some fun, wild times!

Hiya Bill, I'm in Lawrenceville, near Princeton. Not a native, but have been here since '86. Don't think I'll live anywhere else, although provincial France has its appeal.

I actually live in Lawrenceville as well. I'd continue to live for a good while too if I could afford it :)
