Just to keep people interested in the movie project that I have undertaken, I have completed the trailer. It still may take a little while to get the script written and the movie made, but I would like to have it done sometime this summer. Andrea and I just watched the AFI top-100 films of all-time, and I think this one will land somewhere between Lawrence of Arabia and Dumb and Dumber.
Again, major props to Andrea for submitting the original idea. I think we will be pioneering the "Dental Suspense" genre of film. It's a watershed moment in the industry, right up there with the inventions of color film, dolby surround sound, CGI, and the Sound Effects Guy from the Police Academy movies.
Please let me know if you live in Greensboro and would like to have a part. (I've already cast Greg, unbeknownst to him, as the mysterious Damon Thingy, so I hope he's okay with that). Here are some of the parts that need to be filled.
- Dr. Addus - Male - World famous dentist. Actor needs to be able to play a confident, bordering on arrogant, dentist.
- Police Officer #1 and #2 - Either gender, must be able to pull off a stone-cold face.
- New Anchor - Either gender. He or she who can best pull off the Kent Bates persona wins.
- Extras - Unlimited number of people who want to just have a cameo can be written into the script, just for the sake of fun.
Please feel free to liberally post your comments about the chilling trailer that you are about to enjoy.......
**By the way, YouTube has released a annoying new feature that allows YouTube to automatically add additional "related" videos at the end of your clip. It is called the Menu and it YouTube takes far too many liberties with the clips they select to put on this menu. For example, they must use an algorithm that identifies this as a Mormon blog. I was surprised to play my video, and then have several other videos suddenly appear for me to select from. Many of these were anti-Mormon videos.
I found a great website that shows how to disable this horribly intrusive, annoying function that YouTube really messed up. It is:
All you need to add is &rel-0 in the right part of the code. For those of you who post videos to your blogs, I would strongly recommend that you do this because you have no control over the content of the videos YouTube will supply. Shame on YouTube. It is an otherwise great service, but this is not in the best interest of its users.
