Well the Rat Bastards Car Club ( I am an honorary member- or so they tell me ) put on one of the best cars shows in the Northwest in recent memory out at the Triple X Burger in Issaquah, Washington yesterday ( August 30th, 2009) We had a vendor booth for Go-Kustom and shot some scenes from our new feature film Rat Rod Rockers! ( loosely tied in with our last film Hot Rod Girls Save The World ). We were right nxt to the lovely Pin-Up Angels Booth ( including Lindsay Calkins from Hot Rod Girls Save The World ) and next to the Triple X Burger building itself. This event filled several parking lots and was wall to wall people all day long. Great show!
Photos from the August, 30th Shoot of Rat Rod Rockers! Yes I look like a dinkwad on this little buggy, but it rocks the shots! My son is pulling me around BTW. Teri Aslett (who plays Danielle Milldue in Rat Rod Rockers!) did some modeling for a possible segment or feature in an upcoming car magazine.
Well we had an all day filming at the Rat Bastards Infestation II Car Show. Besides filming the event for ambient footage for our film Rat Rod Rockers! and filming scripted scenes, we had a vendor booth selling DVD's from our last film Hot Rod Girls Save The World and got some models set with photographer Steve Puvogel for a possible magazine article on the event. Teri Aslett (actress in Rat Rod Rockers!) and I also did a quick interview for The Vintage Vehicle Show a nationally syndicated car show. The bottom still of this set is me filming the Vintage Vehicle cameraman as he's filming us. Tricky!

Just ordered a 100 count package of .22 (6mm) crimped blank starter pistol rounds for my Movie Prop Guns. I noticed I was down to a mere 18 rounds (from a pack of 100) after filming Hot Rod Girls Save The World. We burned through those things quick during the Zombie Attack scenes. We will only need a few dozen for the Gangster Scenes in Rat Rod Rockers! Only two of my guns shoot the .22 blanks. I actually found two other really great cap guns in a Drug Store (they were originally painted bright orange) that are bigger than one of my starter pistols. Repainted them flat black and they look great on camera.

Spent the majority of the day scouting locations for Rat Rod Rockers! Looks like we found the Farm House/Cabin location. I need to finalize the Location Liability Insurance, but I think we are set. Also bought a walker with wheels to use as a portable camera dolly (just sit down, hold the camera and have someone push you around) at the local thrift store. My Police uniforms also came in the mail. Getting ready for next months filming.

A few more pics from yesterdays Fun In The Sun Run in Edmonds, Washington. Got a call from one prime location for a Farm House for Rat Rod Rockers! We may get it. I need to finalize my Film Production Insurance though. That was their stipulation before we could film there. Rat Rod Rockers! principle filming starts next week!
