How can we find out about what is going on in this region? I see things opening in Hudson Valley that we are not eligible for because they want locals only. I also see movies being made in Buffalo and Rochester area. At this point, I would be totally supportive of any project in Troy, Schenectady, Saratoga, Albany and would safely work to help others. I also have a 14yr old who wants to learn about filming. How can he do this? Can we work towards making Albany the next film hub?
I was on an AFCI Zoom Membership call this week....one of the topics was Pooled Testing....many of the productions that have started are utilizing this resource....speeds up the whole COVID testing process. https://www.fda.gov/news-events/press-announcements/coronavirus-covid-19-update-fda-issues-first-emergency-authorization-sample-pooling-diagnostic

Albany is such a beautiful city and I love seeing that so many filmmakers are utilizing such a beautiful location! As filmmakers and film-lovers know, many film festivals were canceled due to COVID-19, which is hugely impacting the film industry, making it even more important to support the film festivals that are transitioning online. Tomorrow, May 22 the Ashland Independent Film Festival opens with Oscar winning filmmaker, Barbara Kopple’s Desert One on Film Festival Flix. Film Festival Flix also has a large array of independent films outside of the film festivals it hosts, making it a great resource for people who love film. Let me know if you decide to participate in the Ashland Independent Film Festival or decide to look into Film Festival Flix! Stay safe everyone!
Because of the current situation with Covid-19. Wendy and I would like to show our appreciation to all personnel fighting on the front line, Dr.s, Nurses, Police and Fire Departments and everyone heeding the STAY AT HOME advice. I have removed the cost of streaming my film Crocodylus on Vimeo on Demand and for those who don't have Prime.
