First off, no, this is NOT another horror movie. Nowhere near it.
Follow this blog for news, updates and info as the film "Late Night Classics presents Gorilla!" moves from production to assaulting your TV on DVD or Blu-Ray one of these days. Face it, this thing is unlikely to play theatres. Actually, that's a lie. Part of the dream for this feature is to have the premiere at Ottawa, Ontario's Mayfair Theatre (Home of stuff you won't see anywhere else). Follow this blog as the writer/director Dave Shaw and his cast and crew take to this little pocket of cyberspace to find fun news and info as shooting and release progress.
WHAT'S THE STORY???
One person described the movie as "SCTV meets 50's Monster flicks". That could not be more of a compliment. In "Late Night Classics presents Gorilla!", a young woman finds that all her friends and aquaintences are moving into a new apartment and being attacked and killed by an escaped...well, guess. I dare you. The only one who can help her is a former late-night TV show host, a 60's Rat Pack era obsessive, who has been sitting in a Tiki bar, drinking himself into a coma after he himself fought a gorilla years ago.
There's more to it than that, but why give away the store? There will be lots of updates and news to come as pre-production and shooting commences. Join us here for updates.
WHERE ARE WE NOW?
Along with its non-existent budget, "LNCPG" has already snagged a brilliant editor/ co-producer, a talented DOP- who knows how to shoot in glorious black and white, several excellent locations, costumes, a gorilla (Man in suit! Man in suit!) a possible lead actress and a great local band who have agreed to kindly provide some songs for the soundtrack. The remainder of the cast is being wooed from a selection of the city's finest theatre actors. Why hold auditions if you already know who you want? As I say- I'll keep you updated as things firm up.
HELP MAKE A GORILLA!
"LNCPG" just recieved it's first investment- from the super cool Stewart, a volunteer at a local theatre and a true class act. Thanks Stewart! But that's just a start. No, we won't be paying the actors or on-set crew, but they deserve to eat, don't they? So, any money donated to the production of "LNCPG" will first go straight to where it belongs: The cast and crew's tummies.
Stewart will get an Executive Producer credit, why not you? Why not 20 Executive producers? Why not 50? Why not 100? Or more! I for one think it would be hilarious to have the opening credits bursting with Executive Producers. Donate $20 or more, and you, my friend, just became a movie producer. email@example.com on Pay Pal.
