Set on an island off the coast of New England in the 1960s, as a young boy and girl fall in love they are moved to run away together. Various factions of the town mobilize to search for them and the town is turned upside down -- which might not be such a bad thing.
Let me start by admitting that I'm a Wes Anderson fan. I'll stop short of saying that he can do no wrong, but he hasn't done wrong yet.
Moonrise Kingdom comes close.
Wes Anderson, Roman Copolla
There are a few places that always invoke a magical feeling for me: A college campus - filled with such endless possibilities and energy, a music studio where you gather to make individual pieces sound like God's voice (no matter the genre,) and a movie set where all that is combined into one experience.
I desperately need your help fixing a Sony Digital 8 tape. Something jammed, and the tape didn't continue on it's normal path, so I got an error code on the camera. I was able to eject the tape, and re-roll the extra tape back into the cassette. Now, it won't play. I get a Sony Error Code of C:31:23, and I tried the different things on the online forums. Nothing worked.
I have reason to believe that the problem is with the tape itself, and not my camera since other tapes work fine. Now, I just need help fixing the tape. I believe that something on the tape itself has to be reset or re-spooled. I just don't know how to do it.

“Harvey the Monster Racist” premiered on Saturday, December 5, 2009 at the Regency South Coast Village Theater as part of the Orange County Screenwriters Association event featuring actor Kevin Sorbo.
The cooperative production between OCSWA and Lennex Productions had many instant fans as the appreciative audience gave it thumbs way up for its fun tone and clever writing. The eight minute short had people laughing from the opening images to the closing credits and afterward the gathered filmmakers took a much deserved bow talking a bit about the making of the short.

BLOG 3.5 – Bonus Blog about Bootlegging Bastards
During the past couple of weeks, I have had an unwanted crash course in bootlegging, DVDRips, file sharing, bit torrents and pirates. As a struggling filmmaker, it makes me want to VoMiT. <(If you don't get that joke, you especially need to keep reading.)
I didn’t really know what any of those terms meant. I thought the only bootleggers were those people selling crappy $5 DVD’s on the streets of New York, and certainly nobody would bother bootlegging Teenage Dirtbag. I wasn’t at all worried that my film wasn’t available for download the day it was released on DVD. Why wasn’t it available? Well, because there were sound issues holding it up with iTunes, and to be perfectly frank, my distributor is small and old-school, and didn’t worry about getting it up on Hulu or Cinema Now, or anywhere else. They didn’t quite grasp the magnitude of how important it is to make it available for download… IMMEDIATELY.
On September 19,2009 Producer Steve Eccelsine provided our membership with insight both sobering and joyous about the business of Hollywood. Steve read one of my favorite essays from his excellent book "So You Want To Be A Producer" called "All That Glitters." It shows a producer passionate and heartfelt but with an eye cocked askance on this silly business of making movies.
He has generously allowed us to post it here.
First, my bona fides. I’ve been in a classroom either as a teacher or a student for the greater part of 23 years. I’m a professional writer now (with 18 produced films) and a teacher. This is just to tell you that I’ve seen my share of critiques, story meetings and spitballing sessions under many different circumstances.
