Wanna Play Doctor?

Just in case you think I have only guns in the Toy Box....

My new favorite short script (my latest is always my favorite) "The Altar Awaits" is a five-minute hospital drama written for the cast that has expressed interest in the 48-Hour Film Challenge next month.  I hope we can shoot it then, because I wrote it to light it.

Also picked up some scrubs in assorted sizes.  They look mighty comfy.

Back to Work, Slave!

My DigiPhoto II class was canx'd due to low enrollment, so I guess I'll just have to make photos and movies elsewhere!

During my winter road trip, I penned a couple of movie scripts, one of which I'll submit for the college's Advanced Cine. class this fall.  They're doing a Western (!!!) so I might even take the class again, not at least just to play with the school's new RED camera. 

Got back to the Ole Pueblo just in time to mic Nine Buddhas' "Abnormal Psychology," a comedy starring the awesome Mark Klugheit.  Mark was featured in Pima College's 2011 film noir "By Line" and is a regular 9B player.  If I was a big Tucson theater fan, I'd know what plays he's done....

For the past few years, I've been the 9B Sound Director in several 48-Hour Film Challenges, but for the Almost Famous Film Festival challenge next month, I've formed a team with some of my college chums and volunteered (or appointed myself) to be Director of Photography as a welcome break from the mic.  We've prepared a few scripts to adapt for the Challenge, but until H-Hour, we don't know the theme, prop, or line of dialog required by the contest, so we might have to write, cast, and schedule something on the fly that Friday night.

At least I won't have to hang an all-nighter during the Sunday editing... instead I'll take my truck full of movie gear to the Flight in the Eye Productions' trailer shoot for their Western "Lonesome Town."  Hopefully, they'll like my work well enough to let me shoot their whole movie.

With any luck, we'll all have fun and make plans to shoot some of the other scripts in the ensuing months.

and they've still killed fewer people than Ted Kennedy's Oldsmobile.

Passing the Thumper

What do you do when your best buddy has a case of 7.62x51 and nothing to shoot it and you buy a New Thumper that captures your gunny heart, rendering your Old Thumper a gun safe queen?

You work something out....
