    what was the location of that second shot? it sorta looks like buena vista park SOMA in SF, but with the big cylindrical steel containers added.

    or should we assume it's houston? :)

    Hey doody- yeah, I am a megabucks type of producer and I flew my crew to SF for the homeless man shot in the park. ;) No really, it's a place called "Tranquility Park" in downtown Houston.

    It was all filmed in the Houston/Galveston areas... but you'd never know by seeing the movie... looks like NE USA.

    KMS- 3 camera shoot, all 3 Canon XL1S (still camera was also Canon)

    All post production done w/ Sony HW & SW.

    Dave- what lens/matte box do you have on there? Any recommendations for optional equipment on the cam?

    Did you know that 28 Days Later was filmed using the XL1s?

    I am a big fan of low budget, well wrought films; like first novels, these are sometimes the best creative efforts. Throwing money and stars at a production does nothing if there is no story, no tension, no real drama.

    Unfortunately, i am also a fan of horror films and much of what has been done in the last few years is either "tongue in cheek" semi-parody (Cabin Fever) or simply loses the thread (Blair Witch; Session 9). To quote a recent review of "I Spit on Your Corpse": "****, when you can't even make ****ing and axe-murder entertaining, it's time to get out of show business."

    Thus, recent "remakes" of older schlock or classics (Dawn of the Dead; Psycho) leave me cold.

    My ideal: The Third Man (not horror, but noir with a unique flavor).

    Break a leg (or whatever they say).
