The Midwest Independent Film Fest was last night. Futurecop 2010 and Wheelchair Werewolf were on the bill along with Paul Thomas’s Tighty Whiteys and a bunch from Steve Delahoyde. Both incredibly nice and funny guys.
After the shorts, the directors had a little Q&A with the audience. I was asked, of course, how much did it cost? I told them $40 for the wolf mask and the wheelchair was free because I lied to a retirement home in Arlington Hts. and said it was for my grandma. This got a pretty good laugh. And it’s true! A place in my hometown called the Nurse’s Closet will lend you a wheelchair for free to anyone who needs it. Just tell them it’s for your grandma or aunt.
Wheelchairs are perfect for tracking shots, or any shot that will require movement. A desk chair works great too.
There’s your film making tip for the day: Take advantage of the charity of others. Especially the elderly.
Awesome view from the very front row.
