Audience: Family Friendly (but use your best judgment with extra-small children)

Land of Nerds, Filmmaking Panel Recap from Space City Con

Published January 13, 2014 by judithbshields

One of my favorite things about the convention circuit is participating in panels. I enjoy speaking about filmmaking, steampunk, literature, and screenwriting. SpaceCityCon’s panel is up there on my list. It was my pleasure to join Matt Risoldi (monster), Christopher Lowe (tech. dir, props), J’Nean Henderson (costumes), and Peter Kovic (co-editor, documentarist) to talk about the challenges of microbudget filmmaking. One of the things I love about our larger panels is that we share our tools and tricks we used for making a film.

To maintain that look, the filmmakers needed to ensure that the costumes were beautiful and accurate. Costumes can be an expensive, especially period costumes. Luckily, the producer, Judith Shields, found J’Nean Henderson, Victorian Lady.”

Land of the Nerds

Moon Sedai wrote a wonderful review of Frankenstein’s Monster. In praise of the film she wrote:

“The focus of this film is, at the heart, the story, not the blood, gore, and tech. The film is beautifully done despite the low budget.”

Strong words of praise were also given to Matt Risoldi (Monster) and  the cinematography(Slava Vlad). But we won’t spoil that here.
