Sore Throat From Beyond Space

Damn cold.

I actually missed two days of work this week due to this sore throat/cold/flu thing I've got - those of you who know me know that missing work during annual catalog AND spring schedule production means I'm feeling pretty awful.

They actually closed down an area elementary school recently because over half of the kids were all home sick. Yikes.

Mike Hegg sent me a proof dub of TRAILER PARK DOUBLE WIDE TRILOGY OF TERROR...on DVD-R no less! How supercool! Thanks, Mike!!! It looks/sounds good and I have to admit I had a fun time watching it again. Perhaps it will work well as a "beer and pizza" movie. More news soon...

Tim Davis sent me a photo of a model/actress he's cast in the opening for ZOMBIE LOVE SLAVE. Pretty hot. He's hoping to shoot soon...

Vista Street Entertainment says that SWEET PAMELA (aka UNDERBELLY) is streaming on the net. They're supposed to get back to me with more details.

A John Bowker-directed movie I was director of photography on called THE SEEKERS is part of a new DVD multipack called "Bad Taste Theater: Even Worse Than Evil."

Wish I had more movie stuff to report. Hoping to be well soon...

Heeeeeeeere's Buggy!

OK, here's my son operating the mandibles on the UnderBug. He picked out a picture of some South American giant beetle in one of his books as the inspiration, helped with the paper mache' and even helped paint it. I think the eyes cost me $4, and I did buy a small can of black paint (which I only used about 5% of for this project) for a few bucks, but everything else was basically free: empty soda bottles, cardboard, duct tape, newspaper, flour and water.

Meanwhile, I did end up shooting the last bit of wraparound sequence for TWISTED FATES with Dee and Jon last Friday. Thanks to audio problems and a lot of driving back and forth to work around it, it took about 4 hours longer than it should have! But at least it's done.

Mike Hegg got busy with stuff in Portland, so he plans to mail me a proof dub of TRAILER PARK TRILOGY OF TERROR.

Tim Davis reports that he plans to schedule the ZOMBIE LOVE SLAVE opening shoot "in a few weeks."

I've been fighting a cold all week, so not much progress on any movie stuff.

I'll have to snap a picture of the UnderBug and post it (thanks for the suggestion, John), but here is the Creature From the Black Lagoon-inspired monster suit I made for about ten bucks, modelled by my son who really digs it!

Moving Ahead

It looks like I'll be shooting the remainder of the TWISTED FATES wraparound sequence this Friday night. I also talked to Mike Hegg on Monday and he plans to come down Friday night with what we hope to be the final proof dub of TRAILER PARK DOUBLE WIDE TRILOGY OF TERROR. Fingers crossed...

The UnderBug

This weekend, my son and I painted the paper mache bug monster head, which he has dubbed "The UnderBug" (since in the story, it lives 'under' the house). It does indeed look creepy with moving mandibles and four glass eyes, originally meant for taxidermy purposes - I picked those up at Archie McPhee in Seattle.
