Movie Tone News is a new feature that while be appearing on this blog once a month (I hope)
So what is movie Tone news ? well Movie Tone News used to shown, in picture house's in the way back when there was a slot in between the two movies (yes you use to see two) that was a bit like the news you watch on your TV today, no don't worry I'm not going to be bring the latest Thump foot in mouth or anything like that.
Movie Tone News will be a little update on whats happen at Nickel & Dime studios, or in other words whats going on in that centre of madness inside my head : ) right now for this months news.
First I've realised that trying to run two major productions at this point is not feasible, so I had to decide which one would go on & which one would go on the back burner, the two in question are The Heart Stone of Africa & Perilous Island, I looked at this matter in a couple of way, first was time left for each one, PI has 5 shoots left THSOA has a lot more.
Second was cut off point, PI is in the middle of of the second act, when we left Connie & Co where sailing safely heading down river it was the closing of the first act, add to that some actors I hired for to carry the story on have been lost in transit & the choice was made for me.
Other news, as you might recall I need to make up a couple of swamps for the next PI set, these I glad to say are now almost ready so we should get some shots from the location soon & then the movie it's self, after that there's only one shot left in the second act for which I've all I need for the set.
The Heart Stone of Africa is unlike anything else that goes on here tbh & as I've said was looking at new was to carry that forward, I've now settled on away to do this that really I think fits in with what I want to do & we'll take a look at that in the next news update.
So as that wonderful duo would say when doing their news bulletins at the end of their shows, It's a good night from me & a goodnight from him : )
That's a rap for this post as always my thanks for dropping in & if you'd care to leave a comment it would be welcomed : )
