Boardwalk Empire

I had a great conversation yesterday with a location manager who had worked on HBO's Boardwalk Empire for many years....he shared some very cool stories but one he shared I thought was really neat....in order to build the sand dunes on the beach for the show they brought in recycled Christmas trees....as the tides flowed in and out, they eventually created sand dunes on the beach....very creative right?

Lets continue to support local! 2022 Schedule for Pine Hills Film Series...AND as a side note, a few years back I had a location manager ask me if he could scout some local universities for his project, Attack of the 50-Foot Woman! I thought he was kidding...asked if I could take a quick look at the script......lets just say it might not have been appropriate for an educational setting.

I really appreciate this page for its support of filmmakers in the community. As a creative, it is really nice to have a space to connect with other filmmakers and discuss new projects. I wanted to share about a film I just watched that really inspired me, so I thought it might be worth sharing. I came across the trailer from Quiver Distribution on YouTube for “Ruby in Paradise,” a 1993 indie picture that has been remastered for re-released this year. I’m so glad I had the chance to watch it because it was truly a special experience. Especially over the last year, when the film release slate has been somewhat limited, it is great to be presented with quality content on demand to view from the comfort of our own homes. Written and directed by Victor Nuñez, “Ruby in Paradise” is a slice of life, realistically portraying the highs and lows of newfound independence in young adulthood. It reminded me of more recent works like “Boyhood” or “Moonlight,” so it makes sense to me why now was such a prime time to re-release this indie classic. It is available on VOD platforms, such as Prime Video or Google Play, so let me know what you think!
After months of anticipation, "Our Harlem" is finally ready to premiere to the world! On Friday evening, the Vimeo link in the description will be officially viewable, where with one click you will be able to stream the 18 minute film, followed by a Q & A with the astounding cast and crew. Written and directed by Michael Sloman & Larry C. Robinson, Our Harlem takes place In the midst of the opioid epidemic in a gentrified Harlem, where a Jewish in*******al couple seek common ground with their African-American neighbors to combat a serial predator police detective. Immediately following the Q & A, is a promotional video for our next project, "Dark Odyssey" where we are simultaneously launching a Kickstarter campaign to turn it into a short film this summer! https://fb.me/e/3te4fOhR6

How can we find out about what is going on in this region? I see things opening in Hudson Valley that we are not eligible for because they want locals only. I also see movies being made in Buffalo and Rochester area. At this point, I would be totally supportive of any project in Troy, Schenectady, Saratoga, Albany and would safely work to help others. I also have a 14yr old who wants to learn about filming. How can he do this? Can we work towards making Albany the next film hub?
