Lance Henrickson stays in character

Here, Lance Henrickson does a scene with a cat who does not want to be in the movie... but Lance just keeps going with the scene. That's an actor!

The film is Leigh Scott's THE WITCHES OF OZ (in 3D) and here's the IMDB plot summary: "The Witches of Oz follows the exploits of the grown Dorothy Gale, now a successful children's book author, as she moves from Kansas to present day New York City. Dorothy quickly learns that her popular books are based on repressed childhood memories, and that the wonders of Oz are very, very real. When the Wicked Witch of the West shows up in Times Square, Dorothy must find the inner courage to stop her."

Sounds cool, huh?

TODAY'S SCRIPT TIP: SHOULD I WORRY ABOUT RATINGS? - nudity and sex and violence and language and...
Dinner: Fish Tacos at Islands.
Bicycle: Beautiful day, had to ride.
Pages: Over the weekend I finished a step on the assignment (10 pages), Monday it was back to work on the spec that has been stalled in act 3 for a couple of weeks while I did other things... 4 pages on that.

Oh, yeah: UK's Movies For Men Channel: 3-24 19:10 - Steel Sharks - When a United States submarine is seized by terrorists, a rescue attempt by Elite Navy Seals goes awry. The submarine crew wages a silent war beneath the waves in this tense undersea thriller.

I am sorry.

Lance is just pure awesome. I read somewhere because of his dyslexia he never learned to read until very very late in life (way after he was doing films) so he had to learn all his lines by listening to recordings... a true film warrior

re: today's ScSe/ratings

I saw DEEP THROAT in a large, packed (insert joke) room at, drum roll please...

San Jose State University.

It was an antiseptic audience, and I forget the actual freedom-ish line that someone used to hook the authorities into allowing an explicit (both in sight and, well, orally) sex film on campus.

It was weird, sitting there among a few hundred others sitting quietly in uncomfortable chairs and erect.

After the film ended, we all filed out. I went to the Student Union and bowled, to prepare for my next class (I took bowling for P.E., really).

Them was the daze.

Ha! Leigh's letting his Asylum experience come to the fore, since this seems at least marginally inspired in concept by Burton's Alice in Wonderland (although it isn't already on the shelves, so he must not be counting on The Asylum's normal marketing strategy).
