Melissa Webb - If any of you are looking for a composer/arranger for your current film projects, I know of someone who may be available. He's done concert and popular music work primarily for the Air Force, but also as an independent producer. These efforts have been well received by conductor Peter Graves who has worked his whole career with Barbara Streisand and the Bee Gees. He's also currently working with Mr. Donald Fraser formerly of the BBC and the English Chamber Orchestra and who has worked with Phil Collins and opera star Jessye Norman. Let me know if you'd like to get in touch with him. Contact Info Melissa Webb; linebcker@aol.com or Kelly; kelly.beaman@gmail.com

Josh Goldman - begin Principle Photography by December, they are still looking for our 2 main female characters and are also now looking for locations. We need either a house or apartment that is at least 3 bedrooms, possibly having a decent sized in-ground pool, or just access to a good sized in-ground pool with some decent deck space, and a pool hall/bar. We are also about to purchase some A/V equipment and would like to hear some suggestions on camera and audio equipment preferences. Contact Info: crappyproductions@gmail.com

Thao Nguyen - I'm a USF student and I made a comedy some time back for an electronic class. I'm kind of interested in remaking the movie to possibly send it out to a few contests. The attention that I have gained from the project has only been positive, and I'd figure if I could attract even more interest in the project. This could be a great chance for anyone involved, to showcase his or her talents and skill. The comedy (this was a short that I did in two weeks so its not as refined as Id liked) is called "21 Anxieties till I kill myself." If I do actually remake this, I'd like to get actual actors, soundtrack, and maybe a more refined story, with the same concept. The movie can be seen on You Tube.
