Those kids are pretty darned talented

Tonight I attended the Redstone Film Festival hosted by Boston University and (as summed up by The Boston Phoenix) "Sponsored by Boston native [Viacome CEO] Sumner Redstone, the festival is considered the BU Film and Television Department’s signature event, providing a showcase for work by the school’s student filmmakers."



My initial reason for going was self-serving, I was in one of the films nominated ("A Simple Taste"); however, the 29-year-old festival was bolstering in a way I… Continue

Galileo goes to Washington (and Baltimore)

I just got back from performing my Galileo Galilei the Starry Messenger at the Space Telescope Science Institute at Johns Hopkins University. It was a family event for middle school students interested in science and technology. We had a very good audience with lots of questions for Galileo. Before visiting STScI, I visited a school in the DC area and stopped in DC for a look.



The inauguration took quite a toll on the… Continue

Movie Reviews (my opinion)

I've been seeing the movies nominated for SAG awards. By the way if SAG members want to see free films here's what I do:

I show them my SAG card, if they question it I mention that I vote in the SAG awards. One theatre mentioned they had not yet received nomination info so I showed them my nomination sheet and they said, "fine". Not all theatres accept the card, it's totally up to their discretion. Don't make a fuss, and plan to pay if the card is not accepted. This year I have been… Continue

Valerie Parker in the news! "Watch for that face"



Excerpt:




LOWELL -- Have you seen this face? If you visit the cineplex in the next few months, Valerie Parker's mug will be hard to escape. As a stand in and background performer in six Hollywood films shot in Boston and Lowell last year, the local media producer is in demand.





Valerie Parker, of Lowell, above, is an in-demand extra in several upcoming Hollywood productions. Sun/Tory… Continue

Nicknames, Schmicknames

From Chris Conte to You



C'mon Down!!



260,000 miles?!? That's a moonshot!! What took an Apollo 3 days only took Corolla 14 years :)



Anyone who has a car issue on this movie should get a nickname. And since I've been so named "Clutch," by the power vested in me, I designate you...."Alt." Quick. Pithy. and Electrical. Not as sexy as "Tesla," but first come, first served :)



(And by the way, why didn't you post "schmicknames" as a response to my blog? That… Continue

Edge of Darkness Earning a Nickname

So after a week or 2 hiatus from EOD, I get the call to do more driving. And when I show up to set, my name is listed as Chris "Clutch" Conte. Stu informs me, "Did you know you're listed as "Chris 'Clutch' Conte?" "That's 'Clutch Cargo Conte' to you, pal.....and if you remember that odd cartoon, you're older than I am... :)



But this brings me to the subject of nicknames. The crew now universally addresses me as "Clutch." That same night, cruising down 495, Mike W. hit a deer, or more… Continue

Timid Driver/Precision Driver?

My car is playing a primary role without me in Edge of Darkness. It's ironic because when I bought my current car the one thing that disappointed me was the color. It's silver and I wanted some odd, bright color so that I could find it easily in a crowded parking lot. I didn't want a car that blends in and gets lost. Well, the very fact that it's an average color is why it get used in so many films. In EOD it has been parked right next to Mel Gibson and the action with 1st unit, generally while… Continue

Edge of Darkness Driving at South Station

The full story for those of you who worked in Boston today (10/16/08) and were driving around South Station. Yes, I was broken down! I didn't even get one lap around the route, and the clutch cable in my 1993 Volvo snapped, leaving me with 5 gears of neutral! :O Desperately I yanked on the shift, pushed pedal to floor, but no go. So there I was, blocking traffic. I put my hazards on. The horns started. I waved them around me. More horns. I opened the driver door, and threw every ounce of my 190… Continue

Bangor Film Fest report

Well, I'm sorry to say I was a little disappointed. It is a "very" long drive to Bangor and I was really hoping to see "Fathers" on the big screen. What was there was a beautiful auditorium (the local high school), but a tiny screen set up on the stage and a home quality unbalanced video projector. The audience was very small, probably because there were more than one events going on at the same time. They were very appreciative though and that part was nice.



The other films that… Continue

Dangerous Dread work on Surrogates

I originally thought I was posting this blog on New England Actors when I was actually posting it on Our Film Space. The two sites look the same to me (not so tecno savvy here). So I copied the blog from one site to paste on this one. Anyway, here's my experience as a Dread on Surrogates:



This was without a doubt the most ruggedly dangerous set I have ever experienced. I worked on action films in the past, but never been a part of the action scenes. We, Dreads ( background actors ),… Continue

"Fathers" to appear at Bangor Film Festival

I worked on a grad thesis film for a student (Bridget Lake) from Loyola U in California a couple of years ago. "Fathers" will be shown in the upcoming Bangor Film Festival on Friday August 15. We had a great cast including NE actors, Michele Romano, Bill Mootos, Bill Steele and NY actress Diane Gioseffi, as well as a wonderfully talented crew from all over. If anyone is attending the festival, I'm going to try to get up there myself. Please look me up.…

SAG 75th Party

Well, after lots of hard work planning and organizing, the SAG 75th Party finally happened this weekend. I had a Blast (pun intended). Sold out with 500 people! We had a great group of volunteers for this event. What an upbeat positive bunch. Steve Auger found the Ritz for the event. Bill Mootos, Julie Wood and Dona Sommer did most of the overall organizing. The rest of us pitched in with various duties such as PR, mailings, designing the invitations, writing the Blasts, checking people in,… Continue
