My Main Computer is Down

So just a quick update. My main computer is down. It could be a hardware problem but it could also be a hacker problem. It is the Holiday season and with so many people shopping online it's a bad guy dream come true for finding banking info. Well says the news cast any way.

So if it's the hard drive that went down that's a huge problem because everything is on that drive. I have a few back up files but not all. backup drives cost money and that is in real short supply. so I stand to lose 25 years of scripts programs and productions files. All my email contacts, some of which are very important in the industry.

So if it comes down to a data recovery there are many company s that can help me out but at a large cost. I'm looking at $500 to $1,500. I won't know the real cost until I hirer someone to to retrieve it.

I have to figure out how to round the money up. Oh well.  Merry Christmas to everyone.

This is one of the many many script meetings we had on the Echo beach The Movie location shoot. It was a never end set of rewrites because of actors not showing up for work. Not any one that was in the film, all the actors that are not in the film. The ones in the film were great to work with and they are real troopers for hanging in there when everything fell apart because there was an other whole to fix.

Or it could be we were just trying to figure out what we were filming that day. No it's a script meeting.

Funding for Sam's First Movie

So on the left is Actor Sam Kilpatrick age 11. I really hope to start filming with Sam in late Jan 2012. Its a a costly undertaking and it's going to require some capital funds. So I hoping for donations and in return you get perks. If yo donate $25 you will get a Autographed DVD copy of the completed film when it's finished in late March early April. It will be a feature film running about 85 mins.

If you donate $50 you get a Autographed DVD and a special thanks credit in the ending credits which also qualify's you for a credit a page on imdb.com (it's up  to imdb.com to post or not post your name but we will submit it) Donations larger are very welcome and we can work out some additional perks for you if you do.

So please help me help Sam get his acting career kicked into high gear. I will post the donations PayPal button on my website http://sterlingproductions.ca/sam.html

Filming Echo Beach in 2007

So we look like we know what we are doing. I think it was about 70 F when we shot this scene with a slight breeze off the lake and some where around 9:30 pm.

Have you ever noticed that Directors have crazy hair? I'm no different I guess. The stress level was outrageous on this shoot with so many actors not showing up to film there scenes. But any ways the actors that did show were very dedicated to getting the project finished.
