Thanks to “the Austinist for pointing out”:http://austinist.com/2008/01/29/_austin_named_1.php that MovieMaker Magazine named “Austin as the #1 place”:http://www.moviemaker.com/locations/article/top_10_movie_cities_2008_best_places_to_make_movies_20080128 to “live, work and make movies”. Initially, I think “Oh, that’s great! We’re almost done with our “latest film project”:http://www.filmmakingfrenzy.com/rewind/default.aspx, contributing to the coolnes.” Then I think “But wait, we still haven’t made our own film, unprodded by the fine folks at the Drafthouse.” So, all you “Morte dal Disegno”:http://mortedaldisegno.com people need to start looking for adaptable content. Focus on things that could be shot cheaply and have optimally just a couple days of filming. (Planning, rehearsals, construction, etc. can take longer but I would like to keep the actual shooting of the film to a longish Saturday/Sunday schedule.)

Also in the article you will note that Shreveport, La — hometown to several regulars here at the Backporch, including myself — showed up at the #3 slot…mostly thanks to all the films that were wrapping up productions that moved north after Katrina.

What, no Norman? ;)

We were in Shreveport this past weekend and went to Earthereal, a great little lunch spot where Carrie worked at in high school. The owner said they had even gotten in on part of the action, getting numerous catering gigs from production companies.
