Want to make a film on a cruise?

Holy crap look at this!

So there are a ton of talented Twilight fans out there- I've seen your YouTube videos- so this is for you as well as those of you who have always wanted to give filmmaking a go, but haven't found the opportunity or the right situation.

Well I just found out that I'll be going on Fan Trips Fan Film Project as an organizer and lecturer! The trip begins in New Orleans right after Vampire Baseball (check out the link; Peter is putting together a team again- awesome), they've got a bunch of professional filmmakers, producers and editors that will be assisting small groups in making their own short.

It's pretty much like a 48 film festival, but you'll be assisted by pros, instructed in filmmaking the day before filming, and oh yeah.... IT'S ON A CRUISE SHIP. You get a day of film classes, then a few days of shooting in amazing locations, time to edit, and then at the end of the cruise we'll screen everything at the festival and the winners will be announced.

The pros will do individual workshops too, I'll
talk about my work with Twilight, and a thousand other wonderful things... on the Carribean... Oh. Girl.

Plus the grand prize winner gets a walk-on role in John Goodman's upcoming vampire film Girls Gone Vamp! Whoot. I'm getting wicked excited.

If you want to go, book fast- it's filling up like crazy, and it's really reasonable; as a film student I can tell you film classes and experiences like this are never this cheap...

Hope to see you there!

The cruise sounds fabulous! March is a great time to cruise the Caribbean. I was thinking of you because of all the hype about New Moon. Thank God it's taking publicity away from Sarah Palin's book tour.
