filming the plague victims
So my grandson Joshua has made a new film in his Cinematography class… it’s in spanish but you can probably follow the storyline… basically its sci fi and scientists meddling with nanobot technology have unleashed a plague on the world by accident, almost everyone’s dead with a few exceptions.
checking the script
Here we see the Cinematography Professor, my son Mike in camo and Josh discussing the script. Josh and myself scouted out locations the week before looking for isolated places to film.
Later Josh received a Diploma of Special Recognition for his film from the Tlaxcala Cultural Institute.
Josh receives award.

Last month we spent a whole day scouting out locations that looked desolate for Josh’s new film, a sci fi epic of 12 minutes anout nano bots destroying mankind. Sort of reminds me of ” the Blob”…instead of Steve McQueen we had Josh’s brother Paul playing the lead. Rain caused delays, price overruns, prima donnas, etc., just like in real life, good experience to know what directors have to put up with in the big leagues. Of course there are perks also, you get to be well known and you get to date the leading ladies.
Afterwards my wife and I had the crew over (15 people) to eat dinner at our house, (a kind of hollywood catering service).

Mike shoots Steve
My grandson Josh is taking a course in CINEMATOGRAPHY in Tlaxcala, so a couple of weeks ago he directed, edited and scripted a short film. The course cost is about $25 dollars a month, classes on Saturdays from 9AM till 1 pm. I was impressed by the professianalism . A friend loaned them a house to shoot in.There were 14 people in his class, everyone did something…makeup, lighting, cameraman, acting, props, etc.,. The drama Teacher had the honor of commiting suicide in the film. My wife and I did the catering. Give us a million bucks and we can come up with a top notch film.
