Near Hollywood Tours: Coming Soon

Hey everyone, Flobo here. This week, I want to do something a bit different.  This past weekend I  was a part of the LA 48hr Film Festival Project. As the name suggests the goal is to create a film from start to finish in under 48 hours. This was my second shot at a 48hr film this year, with the first being KATANA

This go -round the film is called “Near Hollywood Tours” and it is told in the vein of a Mockumentary (a la “The Office”, “Modern Family”, “This Is Spinal Tap”). I was the screenwriter.

Premiering August 14, 2012

Near Hollywood Tours is about a former athletic coach turned tour guide gives a hapless group a tour of Los Angeles they will never forget.

The weekend was intense. Here’s some still images.

If you are in the Southern California Area, feel free to stop on by and VOTE for “North Hollywood Tours”.

All of my screen and publishing efforts come under the Leatherback Labs banner.

Check out director Rolando Joseph Herrera’s production website, Scrawny Strange Productions here.

One of the best things about being a writer is writing for different media. I’ve written a novel, countless short stories, and in 2012 at least two screened short films! Something keeps telling me this is my “gift”, despite the troubles. Who knows though? Only time will tell. In the meantime, I’m going to get some sleep. I feel like a zombie.
