Hey Phil! If it's the bait and tackle and gas and deli I think it is, I've considered it too. If you are familiar with Yeehaw Jct., you know of Holopaw as well? That gas station on 1-92 was the original place that I had thought of. But that place is growing, and with all the changes they is making, it ain't right no more :)

As for the rest, pre production is going- slowly, but at least in a forward motion. I am working my tail off, just to insure we start on March 5th. And we will, unless there is some cataclysmic force that prevents it. Speaking of which, check out "Lost in La Mancha". It is about Terry Gilliams attempt at doing a movie based on Don Quixote. Very sad...

And, as always, check out the web journal for news and events concerning "Holler- It's a SCREAM in the Backwoods"

Break time

Not sure if people already know about this or not, but I came upon this earlier this year and it always has something on there that cracks me up. Here Strongbad Email, the dragon and techno episodes are my favorite. The homepage is here.

Heads up on Sony DVD players

Circuit city is selling some low cost Sony DVD players that play both "-" and "+" versions of consumers DVDs (including RW). One is listing for 99.00, the other for 129.00 with better color output. Also play Mp3s. Both are progressive. Very slim design too.

Could be a nice addition for those who have to deal with both formats.

Does anyone know of a good place to take workshops for digital film in NYC? I'm looking to take a lighting course to sharpen my skills up.

The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra!

Trailer

Site

Could be a funny send-up of those horrible 50s B movies that get played incessantly on AMC every October--on the other hand, it could be a pale imitation without any laughs, which was how I felt for 90% of Tim Burton's Ed Wood.

I'm surprised a studio got behind this.

I love 50's/60's B-scifi movies: my favorite genre! This looks like a real campy tribute to them. Gotta see this when it's out.

Thanks for the tip, Robert.

{EDIT}
The trailer is hilarious (and very slickly done)! Even the music is from 1940's horror movies. Filmed in "Skeletorama"!

For writing your own stuff ...

For those of you who write your own stuff or wanna here's some interesting and sometimes useful links I've found - feel free to add your own.

1. Check out the script writing columns at Word Play

2. This is an interesting thread from Absolute Write, it's focused on writing novels but is applicable to movies.

3. This is a funny plot generator. Make sure to check out the different links on the page, some fun reading.

4. If you're feeling lazy - this is the automatic random plot generator. (Hint: Press F5 to get a new set of plot points)

5. And just to round it out: Movie Cliches.com
