As it turns out, my friend Paul (of the Dead Zone), his wife Corey, and his brother Mark will all be coming down to KC this weekend, and we're gonna go a-haunting on Saturday night together. This is very exciting news, because I haven't seen these folks for a very long time (Paul didn't get back from Afghanistan until after I had moved down here, and Mark lives in Omaha).
The other thing is that I badly want to talk to Paul about some sort of a partnership. The Dead Zone won't be in operation this year for several reasons, the primary one being a lack of space. Paul neads a space seasonally, and trying to find someone that will rent a big space for just a couple of months is majorly difficult.
I want a studio space, but I can't afford to rent something year-round. And I know other filmmakers that are held back by not having space. If we could all get together and pool our resources, we might be able to find a useable space that would work year-round.
Don't know if it can work. But it is so very worth exploring.
