Well obviously it’s time for me to move to India and get a diploma in Photoshop For Movies.

(Is it even embedding? I don’t think so. If it’s not here, it’s here.)

Zombies on the cheap: a feature film made for $70

May 26, 2009

Colin is a new zombie movie where the story is told from the perspective of the zombie. It cost $70 to make and is apparently kicking butt at Cannes.

Reading the article reveals that the $70 budget quote is a bit of a cheat, because the filmmaker worked with professionals who donated their own equipment and supplies to the project, including makeup that was left over from the X-men movie. It’s not like he and my Auntie Beulah did this on their cel-phone cams in their backyard in York Region, and it’s not necessarily a business model that just anyone can repeat. Still makes me want to see the film, though.

Via my buddy Craig‘s Facebook wall.

Relatedly, here’s a link to a super-awesome 2-minute zombie movie, created as a trailer for the Raindance Film Festival. Well worth watching.

Adventure camping is not for everyone: some girls feel untidy without access to a hot shower.

Question: Is it wrong to label a post about zombies in Cannes with my disgusting things in cans tag?
Answer: If that’s wrong, then I don’t want to be right.

Movie Theatres have Secret Bathrooms for People More Important Than You

October 20, 2008

Did you know that every big movieplex has a secret fancy bathroom for when execs and movie stars come to visit? And did you know that those secret bathrooms are always clean and smell nice and have fresh flowers in ’em? And hand lotion? And Angelina Jolie has probly peed in it or something! Yep.

This photo shows the secret Famous People Bathroom in the movie theatre at Richmond & John in Toronto. It has a black square toilet! And I peed in it! So that is one of the many ways Angelina Jolie and me have in common!

My loony bun is fine, Benny Lava. But thanks for asking, dude.
