According to Wikipedia, it is often mistakenly believed that filming “on location” takes place in the actual location in which its story is set, but this is not necessarily the case. Sometimes you will find that a movie may be set somewhere specific, like maybe on a beach in Washington state, but it is actually filmed on a beach in Oregon somewhere!  Or you never know, you could live in a town where a movie has been filmed, or filmed close by.  Find out where your favorite movies were filmed and some other fun facts about movie locations.  Check out these sites to see where these movies and where your favorite movies were filmed on location!

ARE ZOMBIES HERE TO STAY, OR JUST PASSING THROUGH?

Are Zombies Here to Stay, or Just Passing Through?

First it was vampires.  Then vampires and warewolves.  Then zombies.  Are zombies here to stay, or just passing through?  The newest fad in television and movies seems to be the walking dead, more commonly known as zombies!

So, are zombies here to stay, or just passing through?  Actually, zombies have been around for a really long time, and with a huge fan base.  Recently though, zombies seem to be taking over the big screen and the little screen!  You can see zombies in movies dating way back to 1932, in White Zombie.  The zombies in this movie may be a little different than what we are used to seeing today, as these were corpses brought back to life to act as a slave!  What about Frankenstein?  The first installment of this movie was released in 1931.  Frankenstein was a zombie brought back to life after being put back together with the body parts of exhumed corpses!

More zombie movies followed the likes of these!  In 1964 Night of the Living Dead was released.  These were bloodthirsty zombies hunting for people hiding in a farmhouse.  The first version of Dawn of the Dead was released in 1978, about a growing epidemic of zombies.  But more recently there has been an onslaught of zombies.  Everywhere you look its dead walking corpses, with a huge fan base and following!  So are zombies here to stay, or just passing through?

Actually, zombie flicks have been a fad for quite a while, but since the turn of the new millennium we have really been seeing a lot of zombie movies.  And since the release of the television series The Walking Dead in 2010, there have been even more zombie movies on the big screen.

The Wallking Dead on AMC is about a police officer who leads a group of survivors in a world filled with zombies.  The show has gained a huge following, has won 10 different awards and has been nominated for 41 more!

The list of zombie movies goes on and on, but just since The Walking Dead has been airing there have been quiet a few movies released.  Some of these include Zombie Apocalypse, Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies, and just this year Warm Bodies, a movie about an unusual zombie who forms a relationship with a young woman and helps save her from an attack.

And now with the release of one of the most expensive zombie movies in US history, World War Z starring the one and only Brad Pitt, it seems zombies are here to stay!  World War Z, set to release on June 21st of this year, a story about a zombie pandemic just proves that the fad of zombie movies has become more than that!  So, to answer the question, are zombies here to stay, or just passing through?  Looks like they are here for the long haul!!!

Key Grip Grips are lighting and rigging technicians in the filmmaking and video production industries. They constitute their own department on a film set and are directed by a key grip. Grips have two main functions. The first is to work closely with the camera department to provide camera support, especially if the camera is mounted to a dolly, crane, or in an unusual position, such as the top of a ladder. Some grips may specialize in operating camera dollies or camera cranes. The second main function of grips is to work closely with the electrical department to create lighting set-ups necessary for a shot under the direction of the Director of Photography.
Gaffer The chief lighting electrician, responsible for lighting the set according to direction from the cinematographer, who may request a feel of “late morning” or “twilight.”
Key Set Costumer The Key Costumer is the wardrobe supervisor. He or she is in charge of the wardrobe on the set, fixing any problem involving costumes, assisting in the budget, and selecting the costumes the actors will be wearing. It is the Key Costumer’s responsibility to make sure that each costume works, that it doesn’t clash or look too much like another actor’s wardrobe, and that it makes a statement about the character. He or she supervises all costume fittings and is responsible for choosing and acquiring the wardrobe to be used by the actors. In low budget films, the Key Costumer may also be the costume designer.
Boom Operator An assistant to the production sound mixer, responsible for microphone placement and movement during a take. Uses a boom: a special piece of equipment that allows precise control of the microphone at a distance away from the actors.
Best Boy Electric Assists the gaffer, supervises the rest of the electricians. Can be a woman, but the title’s the same.
Color Timer Balances the film’s color, contrast and density in the processing lab for consistency of tone and mood throughout movie.
Wrangler Chooses, trains and takes care of horses and other livestock used in the making of the movie. While wranglers are most common in films that feature horses, such as Brokeback Mountain, they can be caretakers of all kinds of creatures, from Arachnophobia’s spiders to Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom’s snakes.
Negative Cutter Cuts and splices the negatives as directed by the film editor, provides the assembled negative reels to the lab in order for prints to be made.
Foley Artist Creates, recreates and records sound effects, such as raging storms or breaking bones. Named after famous sound editor Jack Foley.

RVA MAGAZINE ARTICLE WITH “AFTER PORN ENDS” DIRECTOR, BRYCE WAGONER…

While Director Bryce Wagoner was putting the final touches on his debut documentary, After Porn Ends, he obtained the opinion of two people any filmmaker exploring the world of adult entertainment would want by their side his grandparents. “I showed my MeeMaw about ten minutes of the film and told her I had a chance to make this movie but that it involved pornography.  After watching the clips she said, “Honey, I’m glad you were the first one to come up with this idea,”  And while his MeeMaw took the overly supportive path that grandmothers are supposed to take when their grandsons inform them that they’re working on a large-scale project, his grandfather decided to take a road less traveled the realistic one.  ”I told him there was going to be some nudity but nothing gratuitous and he said, “Son you can’t make a lumberjack movie without depicting some trees.”

Mr. MeeMaw had a point.  If After Porn Ends were a film about the tree cutting community, a few trees would certainly be depicted in the process.  Honing in on a dozen of the porn industry’s most famous names and felling the story of what happens after the cameras stopped rolling, the movie offers an inside look at an industry that is justa s misguided as it is misunderstood.  But makes no mistake — this is not a film that should be judged according to it’s cover, which features a scantitlu clad Mary Carey looking adequately repared to tackle the ty[e of wood that doesn’t exactly live in the forest.     To Finish Reading Article CLICK HERE
