Productive Evening Last Night

DR. PUDDING'S MONSTER FILES: Worked on the "pool monster" head a bit on Sunday night - it's all plastic milk jugs & duct tape right now. Bought some spray foam insulation and spray paint last night. Hope to work more on this tonight. Also got word from Laura Giglio that she's going to be able to shoot the pick-ups for DONNA THE NURSE (I gotta make up a creepier name for that segment) in the next couple of weeks. Last week I picked up some fake vines with leaves on them at the Dollar Tree to add to the paper mache head I've made for the "Tree Spirit," the titular character in a segment I'm writing that is kind of like Pumpkinhead if Pumpkinhead was made from a tree. Photos soon...

Sent a PDF of the VideoDrone segment of TWISTED FATES to a local actress recommended by an actor I've worked with a lot. We'll see if she's interested.

No word from Tim Davis on the status of the ZOMBIE LOVE SLAVE opening sequence.

Got a quote from an area replicator on getting DVD-R copies of TRAILER PARK DOUBLE WIDE TRILOGY OF TERROR. Need to whip up some art for the discs and the sleeves and get them ordered.

Heading out of town for a bit of a Spring Break/Easter vacation. Plan to take the laptop and work on some scripts/shooting schedules.

Revenge of the Underbug!!!

Friday night my son and I spent some quality time together in the crawlspace underneath my house. We were finally getting around to shooting more on the "Underbug" project with me starring as an exterminator and him puppeteering the paper mache bugmonster head we made. It was a blast.

Unfortunately the rechargable halogen hunting light I'd bought a while back didn't last very long at all, so I really only got one shot where there was a bit of blue light accenting the scene (in addition to the flashlight my character was holding). Then the light dimmed completely out. I guess it might actually be creepier to have so much darkness down there, although it makes the bug head a bit hard to see, even when I'm running my flashlight beam over it. I will have to see how things look once I do a rough edit. If it's too confusing to follow what's happening, I'll figure out a better lighting set-up and reshoot sometime (my usual movie lights wouldn't work because the stards are too tall and they get too hot).

Snowstorm of the Undead

Tim Davis' shoot for ZOMBIE LOVE SLAVE was cancelled last Saturday due to a snow storm in the Virginia area. Damn.
