Starroid Raiders!!!

Here are my STARROID RAIDERS a set of Star Wars knock-offs my parents got me for Christmas from a catalog. They came packed in a small, plain cardboard box. No fancy packaging - no names, even! I loved them more than some toys perhaps because since no one I knew had them, they seemed almost made for me! I made up names for them and they had many grand adventures alongside micronauts, Hammerhead and an assortment of small rubber monsters. It wasn't until about a year ago that I did some searching online and discovered their true identities: (left to right) Wag, Tanco, Aton, Tior, Newt and Yazu.

Is the Water Warm Enough? Yes, Lisa...

Spent several hours today shooting scenes for DEADLY PREMONITIONS with Toni Draggon as Lisa, Lacey
Brassiere as Wendy and Rob Merickel again playing the masked killer in addition to doing make-up, holding the boom, helping with lights, etc. Great, great performances and everyone seemed to have a swell time.

Look at the SIZE of those things! This was my first time working with Lacey
Brassiere and she was terrific and a real trooper letting us dump a half a bottle of karo syrup blood on her copius cleavage!

Several unexpected things cropped up over the weekend, so still music and sound to work on for TAINTED BLOOD.

Time is flying...

Joe's Movie Studio

I have the next DEADLY PREMONITIONS shoot scheduled for this coming Sunday. Once again my house will stand in for another location - this time I'll be shooting in the playroom/bonus room above the garage and one of the bathrooms, all standing in as two girls' apartment.

So far, I've used the entryway, front door, hallway and living room for "Eva's house," the family room, kitchen, bedroom, exterior/driveway and 2 bathrooms for "Carrie's house," and the area by my computer for "Eric's office." This weekend will add one of the bathrooms and the playroom/bonus room as the "apartment." I plan to use my office as "Josh's office." Not much of my house left! Amazingly, I have yet to use my garage for DEADLY PREMONITIONS, which has found it's way into most of my movies. Heck I even shot UNDER my house for the UnderBug segment of DR. PUDDING'S MONSTER FILES. Crazy!

Finished the video edit for TAINTED BLOOD last night. Runs a few seconds shy of 20 minutes. Looks cool. Now on to fixing some sound and adding sound effects & music.

Busy busy busy...

One Step at a Time

Spent yesterday shooting pick-ups with Amira for DEADLY PREMONTIONS. All went well and she more than qualifies as a real trooper for having to flip flop between stressed, relaxed, happy, worried and frantic since we were shooting out of sequence.

Have a deadline for TAINTED BLOOD coming up so will need to concentrate on that for a bit to get it done and out.

Meeting with a potential actress this Wendesday for a small role in DEADLY PREMONTIONS.

Finished up a DVD cover design job - need to get on a CD and mail it off.

Watched PARTS: THE CLONUS HORROR last week. Saw it originally on the CBS Late Movie and it sure was creepy. I saw PHANTASM on the CBS Late Movie, too.

More soon...
