Oh no, not ANOTHER vampire movie?

Not a lot happening on the movie front right now. We're still trying to get our requisite TV shows put together for broadcast on public access so we can qualify to use the Premiere editing suites for the flick; the Casablanca stations don't allow for password protection of your work, and we've already had a problem with some moron deleting Antony's project off of it. Once we can use the PC-based systems, we can easily backup to a USB portable drive.

I had an idea for a vampire movie yesterday, so I wrote up a quick treatment last night. It's a horror/comedy, which seems to be a genre I'm slowly being seduced into. I don't know why, but I've always gotten a kick out of being frightened and laughing at the same time. I'm going to watch "Shaun of the Dead" for inspiration.

Monday evening my wife and I invited Antony to bring his family out for a sail on our boat. I'd never met Mary and their son Brian before, but they're really nice and a lot of fun. Brian did a great job steering the boat, too. He's a natural born pirate!

The vampire thing has been done to death (pun intended), but so has the living dead thing, and yet "Shaun of the Dead" was a funny twist on the zombie movie genre, so maybe I'll give it a try sometime.

Think "From Dusk 'til Dawn" meets "Supersize Me", and you pretty much got my idea in a nutshell.
