The Beast of Bottomless Lake

Postby Jedischooldropout » Thu Oct 22, 2009 1:00 am

Hi Folks,

Pardon my shameless shilling...
You may already know about this - I was pleasantly surprised when Joe Nickell demonstrated knowledge of it at TAM this past week - I am in the last stages of post-production on a feature film about the Ogopogo. (People assume it's a documentary - it is not. It is a fictional narrative - a comedic modern update of Moby dick.)
We are actually sitting on tenter-pegs at the moment awaiting news as to whether we've been selected for inclusion in the Toronto Film Festival (They did their first announcements yesterday - July 15th, and Canadian Films are announced on August 4th.)
I did an impromptu sneak preview at TAM that in my mind was a big success.
I was also the featured guest on Radio Freethinkers this past week on their cryptozoology special.
My knowledge of the Ogopogo phenom is more sociological - navigating the politcal minefield of making a movie with a skeptical view point about a lake monster that is a cornerstone of the tourism industry in the region you are making the film in is an interesting experience.

Regardless, I look forward to new episodes.

Cool - I look forward to checking it out. I like your website art.
(Hopefully I'll enjoy it more than "Incident at Loch Ness.")

WHAT? Incident at Loch Ness was a hoot. I can't hear about Werner Herzog without chuckling to myself.

I actually avoided "Incident..." while in pre-production and during the shoot so as to avoid any kind of uh.... "creative bleed-through". Not for legal reasons, strictly to keep my own process 'clean.'
The director, Craig, did watch it though.
I suppose now that it can't effectively influence me, I should get around to seeing it.

I watched it as part of a movie-night with some friends. It would have helped if I'd known it was a subtle comedy rather than an overt one (for the most part). It probably deserves a re-watch.

Good luck with your movie. That's excellent.
