    Georgia, US, is now No 3 in film production.

    In Atlanta you have Tyler Perry who has been very productive with films and plays. You have the Walking Dead series which is drawing a lot of attention to the state. Pinewood Studios (James Bond franchise) is building a huge facility near there. And, as noted there was already a big media...

    Noah 2014

    I saw the movie the other day and was OK until the rocks started roaming around and talking. Just a little too SCIFI for my taste for a biblical movie. It did sort of explain how a few people built a wooden Titanic in a few years. Was the movie entertaining? Yep. Was Crowe good? Yes. Would I pay...

    Need idea for new company name

    My company, Black Creek Productions, was named thusly: Black Creek flows through the valley where my farm is. In the early 1800's my family (on my maternal grandfather's side) owned a huge tract of land that the creek flows through. It flows over one of the icons of my youth, Noccalula...

    Film-set tragedies

    Also absent from the article was weather or not the crew had permission to be on the tracks. It is very difficult to get permission to film on live rail due to the fact that rail traffic is high on a lot of corridors. There are many abandoned and short lines (with little or no traffic) that...

    Everything has a story

    Whenever I see a rusty old vehicle I think to myself "at one time that was someone's pride and joy". Maybe the first vehicle they ever owned or one that some special event took place in. Dan Seals had a song that reflected that sentiment:

    $40,000 Samsung 84" 4K TV

    I remember when my boss bought an early flat screen TV in 2004. It was small and cost $3500.00. He wrote it off as a business expense even though it hung on the wall in his bedroom. Now I see huge flat screens for 2K or less and they're getting bigger and cheaper. I predict that in a few years...

    Shirley Temple Dies

    I didn't care too much for her movies but she was a product of a Hollywood that at least had a fa├žade of dignity and class. RIP little "Curly Top".

    About moving to California.

    My producer buddy called me from LA today. He's coming out in a few weeks to scout locations to film several movies. He has an office in LA and one in Nashville, TN. We had a long conversation about what there is in this area to attract independent and major film companies. He said the high cost...

    Grammer correction....

    If Jack helped you off the horse would you help Jack off the horse? You tell me what's wrong with that sentence. I have been a writer most of my life and I am somewhat of a grammar stickler. If you are going to write screenplays, novels, stories or manuals on repairing widgets you need to...

    About moving to California.

    I had a location scout call me the other day from LA looking for a place to film a war movie. One of my locations is a former military base that has partially been turned over to local officials. He told me that he was charged $3000.00 to film for four hours on PUBLIC PROPERTY (a former...

    North Korea wants a film fest.

    If you don't mind supporting a lunatic that now has nuclear weapons by all means spend some money over there. Having spent two and a half years just south of that workers paradise I can tell you that they are lousy neighbors. If the world had cut off their food and fuel 20 years ago they would...

    RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman

    Another talented person that rode the "white horse" into oblivion.

    About moving to California.

    Nope........Union General Philip Henry Sheridan "If Sheridan was unpopular in Texas, neither did he have much appreciation for the Lone Star State. In 1866 newspapers quoted him as saying, "If I owned Texas and Hell, I would rent Texas and live in Hell", a statement which he repeated in later...

    About moving to California.

    If I owned Hell and California I'd live in Hell and rent California out.
