In other news, I contacted Byron Miller and got some very useful advice for filmmaking. Byron is a former member of the electronic/EBM/industrial band God Module, which he left about a week ago in order to devote his full attention to filmmaking. I actually contacted Miller probably about a year ago for advice on some electronic music questions I had. When I heard he had quit God Module I decided to try and see what he was up to, only to learn that he's in pre-production as well for his next film which is also a horror production.
I asked Miller if he had any advice he could give another independent filmmaker who is just starting out, and he wrote be back this afternoon with some very good pointers that I probably wouldn't have thought about. The most notable being to get some good behind the scenes footage, including some cast interviews. This can be a very good thing to have for DVD extras or "special editions". Also advice on photography and of course feeding your cast, as a fed cast is a happy cast... especially if they're working for free. Don't worry guys, I'll throw some cheeseburgers your way.
