Follow our film production online.

update: We finished production and are into post. Website has advanced a lot and my blog entries made it through all of production. Now post production blogs will be up. We are working towards distribution soon. Thanks for reading.

So in an effort to pass our film's website along i've decided to post it on forums I frequent. In addition to filmmaking I have a passion for cars, and I am hoping to purchase an e90 soon after the release of this film if I get enough coin. right now my e36 is my best friend.

So this is an independent film that I wrote and am producing. It stars Ben Savage (boy meets world), Autumn Reeser (the O.C.), Tom Arnold, and other terrific actors.

I am setting up a kind of grassroots internet buzz to see how far we get. I am maintaining a website that has daily blog/journal entries about production, photo galleries, biographies, etc. I have been urged to keep updating the site because I guess people like reading behind the scenes type stuff. Hopefully some of you guys will appreciate it aswell.

www.paloaltothemovie.com

You will all be happy to hear that a BMW is featured as a character in the film. Unfortunately due to creative reasons, it could not be an e90 (too new and flashy), and is an e46 330i, but still it will be highlighted pretty well.

Let me know if you have any questions about the film, filmmaking in general, hollywood politics, etc. I can answer them here or write a blog entry about it on the website.

here are some pictures to hold you over. more on the website









If you find this type of stuff interesting or have buddies that do, please feel free to pass the link around or even contact me.

my public email is tony@paloaltothemovie.com

thanks for reading!

wow. im jealous. this looks like tons of fun. I am in the very begining stages of starting an indie production company. We have a pyschological thriller type movie that we are gonna start shooting very soon(not as large of a budget, or as professional looking as what you are doing) but hopefully it will come out ok. Then i wanna start working on something animated.

That is so cool. I grew up in Sunnyvale so I know Palo Alto well. I cannot wait to see it.

Wow this is incredible

Best of luck w/ success with this film, It looks great! I'm definately going to check it out if I can.

I'm currently in film school, and am hoping to make an indie of my own soon.

I can only hope to be as successful as you already are.

I went to University of the Pacific...

I spent a bunch of time in Palo Alto while I was there.

Good luck with your film!!!
