Did I mention that SHOOTERS is also available for download to your Nook at Barnes & Noble.com? Well, it is. What are you waiting for?

CHRISTMAS WITH THE DEAD was a tough shoot. (Aren't they all?) I think the only reason we managed to pull it off at all was because we received amazing contributions from the townspeople of Nacogdoches, Texas. They were unbelievably helpful and supportive of the production.
Everywhere we went people let us shoot on their property for free. People came out to be "zombies" (we call them "snappers" and they are a bit different than your average zombie) and cult members by the dozens, often staying on set until 5 or 6 in the morning. People donated food and services to help us get our picture made. It was all a bit unbelievable.
But the most amazing thing about it all was that after they would perform these good deeds to help us they would come up to us afterwards and thank us for letting them be a part of the show. Can you believe that? Anyone who shoots in L.A. or New York won't buy it, I'm sure. But it's true. So I want to take this moment to say something to all those good people who helped us so selflessly and for some reason thought we had done them a favor:

I made it home on the 4th of July, then collapsed for the better part of the week. This flick was a hard one to recover from, but I know I'm almost there now because last night, for the first time in two weeks, I managed to sleep without dreaming I was still on the set. Filmmakers out there know what I'm talking about. You work 14-18 hours, go home, finally get to sleep and you dream you are still working. It's exhausting because you never stop working, even in your sleep. But hopefully that part of rehab is now over and my dreams will be replaced by images from BLUE VELVET, like in this classic clip from the past. Go get 'em, Roy!
