For anyone who’s curious, here’s what I’m up to, outside of monthly AVGN and Spike videos.
1. BOARD JAMES
I’ve been trying to get another Board James episode out since April, but there hasn’t been any spare time. The next one won’t be anywhere near as spectacular as the last, but hey, the Mr. Bucket episode was a great way to segue into a break. Hopefully the new one will be done before I go into Halloween hibernation.
2. CINEMASSACRE’S MONSTER MADNESS
“Madness” is exactly what it is. Churning out 31 videos for October is a huge undertaking, but it’s fun bringing obscure horror films to light. I’ve really been enjoying all your voice-over submissions. I hope with the videos, I can live up to them. (See past years’ marathons here: 2007, 2008, 2009.)
3. PLAN 9 REMAKE
Darkstone Entertainment’s making a big remake of the “worst film of all time” Plan 9 From Outer Space. I’ll be playing a supporting role. Expecting to shoot Spring 2011.
4. AVGN DVD VOL 4.
I plan to start on this as soon as I humanely can. I expect it to go out November or December, usual time. They’ll be some good outtakes from the Crazy Castle episode. Other than that, I’m not sure how many bonus features there will be, but it will be packed with all the episodes from 2009. Buy past DVD’s here.
5. THE BLOB DOCUMENTARY
In the summer of 2008, I shot this documentary about the movie The Blob and have been trying to edit it ever since. Part of it covers the annual Blobfest celebration in Phoenixville, PA. The other part is a tour of filming locations from the original 1958 classic. For 2 and a half years now, this video has been dead in the water. Hopefully this Fall/Winter, I can sit down and finish it.
6. FEATURE FILM
Once I’m caught up enough and have some extra time to breathe, I’ll get to work on my first big film. Since it’s not happening any time real soon, I don’t want to spoil anything yet.
NEW AVGN this Friday.
