Dana Tower, COO of pond5 (video footage production resource)

with 2 comments

Something that really stood out in my interview with Dana Tower about pond5 is that one the four things he wants you to remember about pond5, is they are friendly! Dana was certainly amiable in his interview with Rocket’s Tail and having perused some of the footage on their website, it ranges from the lovely to the banal to the vintage; much of it in HD. Prices for a royalty free clip begin at $5 and seem to be centered between $35 and $50. So, when you need that one-of-a-kind shot of an orangutan in HD and don’t have time to spend a day at the zoo, head on over to pond5 (http://www.pond5.com/).

Update on Saxon Mills’ Spy Thriller

leave a comment »

On Monday and Tuesday the team hit the country side filming scenes from our upcoming spy-thriller The Oligarch Duplicity. Most of the locations stand in for Rome and Tuscany as well as the Black Sea. Utilizing elves and magic, McLaughlin Vinyards stand in for places in Tuscany, Long Island Sound stands in for the Black Sea, and Good Food Fast provides a location worthy of Hollywood. Additionally, the home of musician Tracy James provides Tuscan exteriors for the safehouse.

About TMTGirls: The Oligarch Duplicity
Kathryn Bale (Kathryn Fumie) is a famous reporter. Secretly, her twin sister takes all the dangerous assignments. The series opens when her twin sister goes missing. The Oligarch Duplicity is scheduled for release on September 1, 2009 and will be released weekly through February 2, 2010. The entire series will be released uninterrupted and uncut on DVD and streaming online at a later, as yet undetermined, date.

Hayden Black Interview – Part One

leave a comment »

This is part one of my interview with Hayden Black of Goodnight Burbank, Abigail’s Teen Diary, and the upcoming Cabonauts. In this interview he talks a bit about what it means to “go viral” and the journey his work has taken since launching Goodnight Burbank in March 2006. He is both a gentleman and hilariously funny. It was a pleasure to interview him.

Interview with Steve Pick from CELTX

with 2 comments

I had the pleasure of meeting Steve Pick from Celtx at the CT Film Festival and learned more about their product, which Saxon Mills¬†used for the pre-production of The Oligarch Duplicity (due in Sept 2009). It’s a great tool and it’s free; definitely worth trying out. For a small fee there are a number of enhanced collaboration tools, etc. Take a look and get to meet one of the really excellent people from this company in Newfoundland.
