The production for a movie can be looked at in three parts. There is pre-production and the actual film production, then the filmmaker has one final lap with post production and this is there chance to finish their dream that started on a blank page.

A few months ago, April to be exact, we shared the IndieGoGo project for the film “Life Insurance Lottery”. This project was to help through the filming process and now is the time for post-production and this is your chance to have your hands or some blood (depending on the perks you pick) in some great independent cinema.

A Look From Nowhere At Life Insurance Lottery..

gt3xlcw

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

 The creative minds behind “Haunted Trailer” and “Getting Schooled”, a personal favorite of Nowhere California, are getting ready to roll film on their next production and they want you to roll the dice with them in the form of an indiegogo project.

 “Life Insurance Lottery” follows a down and out loser, as he wishes for the simple life and joins a club that could be the answer to all of his dreams; but when his friends start to die, he must choose between a growing bank account and stopping a rising body count.

 The writer behind this film is Chuck Norfolk and he originally submitted this script for the third season of the “Project Greenlight” television series, the script was ranked in the top 20% of the competition and, after 16 years on a hard drive, the time has come for “Life Insurance Lottery” to become a big screen reality.

 The first part of that reality is an indiegogo project to achieve a budget this film deserves, you can check out this project by CLICKING HERE On this page, you can check out plans for the production and budget. You can meet the people that will create this film from behind and in front of the camera. Also, a key budget point has been revealed that a secret backer will match funds up to $15,000 and that should be a prime example that even a dollar will go a long way.

 Now, with any crowd funding projects, the perks can be as important as the campaign and the rewards for the “Life Insurance Lottery” project will allow you to leave your own mark on this movie. The details of these perks are worth the viewing and are well worth your money.

 This project is currently live and we will keep you posted on the progress of this production. In Nowhere California’s lifetime, we take great pride in the independent creativity that we have shared with our listeners and this production will continue this path.

A Goal Reached With Time To Spare..

October 20th will mark the end of our Booster.com shirt campaign and we have reached our printing goal. When we launched this project, we were tasked to sell 14 and luckily we hit that number with time to spare. Now, with that said, there is still time and you still have a chance to order a Nowhere California shirt.

If you go to www.booster.com/nowhereca, you can order a shirt for $19.99 (that is $15.00 for the shirt and $4.99 for shipping) This has been a fun project and the entire Nowhere California team wants to thank everyone that has helped us.

JOIN THE FIGHT! Help the HACK PACK!

(Nicholas Dye/ Staff Writer)

The guys here at Nowhere California have launched a new campaign that, at the very least, will get us some awesome shirts made, and at best, we might just earn some money that we can put towards our convention expenses and equipment costs.

We have designed an exclusive “HACK PACK” t-shirt and the short goal is to sell 14 shirts which will get them to print. If we can reach a goal of 50 shirts, then we will actually make some money to put towards expanding our horizons at Nowhere California.

 

The campaign can be found at http://www.booster.com/nowhereca and the shirt runs a total of $19.99 with shipping included. They are 100% cotton high quality t-shirts that you can show off at conventions or comic shops. BUT WAIT!! THERE’S MORE!! The first 14 people who purchase shirts will receive ALL of our interviews and content from the upcoming Stan Lee’s Comikaze before the general public does.

We here at Nowhere California don’t usually like to pander but…OKAY OKAY we have never been above pandering to get listeners and now we hope that same shameless groveling will get you to join the HACK PACK and sport our mildly suggestive t-shirt!! Excelsior!!!!

 

 

Blood On The Screen And Atari Dreams

A few weeks ago, Nowhere California was introduced to the independent horror/comedy “CONJOINED” and I was quickly intrigued by this bare bones, but highly creative movie. I wrote a review for this movie and posted my thoughts to this website.

Recently, I was able to talk to one of the creative minds behind this movie and talk to Joe Grisaffi. Joe was the director of “CONJOINED” and this interview dives into the evolution of a crazy story idea. Also, our conversation takes a look at Joe’s career and his adventures in the 8-bit video game world.

NowhereCalifornia.com Reaches Its First Year..

365_zps32stbaw6

(Joshua Gilmore- Staff Writer)

It started one year ago today, this site was launched and took the concept of Nowhere California to a whole new level.

Nowhere California started in 2011 and it was just another conversation between two friends, but these conversation started taking place in front of a microphone and unleashed on the internet. It was as simple as that, but as Nowhere California evolved, the team grew and new accomplishments were reach.

The episodes started to grow and the team ventured out of the Nowhere city limits, as they dove into the world of conventions and conducting interviews. It was with each accomplishment, the Nowhere California family stuck to their ideals of what they wanted to produce and not to become just another podcast.

It was that mindset that grew into this website and, as we mark our first year on the net, we want to simply say THANK YOU.

Thank you for following the journey of Nowhere California.

Thank you for listening to the original podcast and all of the other podcast that have sprung from this little idea.

Thank you for checking out this site

And thank you for continuing this adventure with us.

Nowhere California Dives Into Some Independent Ink..

This might sound like a broken record, but the team of Nowhere California loves the world of independent creativity. It’s a world that birthed Nowhere California and we love to shine a spotlight into the area of art.

It began with “Queen Gorya”, then we took a trip to hell with “Oh, Hell”, and the guys recently received an education with “Getting Schooled..” At the recent Los Angeles Days of the Dead convention, Nowhere California returned to the printed page and talked with the mind behind Wannabe Press, Russell Nohelty.

In this conversation, Russell opens up about what got him to start Wannabe Press and mission for the creative works that might get lost in the mainstream publication world.

OH, HELL.. The Comikaze Coverage Continues..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

Nowhere California’s coverage of the 2015 Stan Lee’s Comikaze Convention is almost over and it’s time to revisit a friend from our conventions past.

Back in 2013, the guys from Nowhere made their way to Long Beach to cover the 5th Annual Long Beach Comic and Horror Convention. At this event, the guys talked to a lot of talented people and decided to record several interviews with some individuals from the independent comic book world..

CLICK HERE for that classic episode

As we talked to these great artists and creators, one conversation stood out and that was with the creator of “Oh, Hell..” George Wassil. The story of the creation and ideas behind his comic stood out to the guys from Nowhere, so a creative friendship was born.

Since that first meeting, both projects evolved and the opportunity to cross paths presented itself at the Comikaze event, so..

screen-shot-2015-11-10-at-1-24-15-pm

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

In November, the creative minds of Mystery Science Theater 3000 launched a kickstarter in the hopes to relaunch this classic series and the loyal cult of the series have answered their call. In a short period of time the original goal was met and new information for the relaunched series was announced.

cvj-a1zxiaan9cp

As the new goal points were reached, Joel Hodgson would reveal the exciting possibilities that would be coming to the relaunch of the series and these were stated as possibilities, since Joel would say nothing could be set in stone until the kickstarter was finished. These announcements have been exciting to say the least and have revealed the new members of the cast; such as Jonah Ray as the guy launched into space and Felicia Day as Kinga Forrester, who is the daughter of MST3k original mad scientist Dr. Clayton Forrester. Also, in another piece of classic offspring news, Patton Oswalt has been announced to step in the role of TV’s Frank’s son and will be stepping in the role of TV’s Son of TV’s Frank.

Now, with all of that excitement out of the way, it is time for the important information and this kickstarter is in the final stretch. The goal is to reach the proper amount to produce 12 episodes and there is under 6 days left to meet that goal, so PLEASE go to their kickstarter page by CLICKING HERE and help reboot something that deserves to be rebooted.

Let’s Kickstart The Satellite Of Love..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

There has been activity at the Gizmonic Institute and it’s time to return to the Satellite of Love, because the legendary crew of Mystery Science Theater 3000 are preparing for a new voyage and they need your help.

SHOUT! Factory has acquired Mystery Science Theater 3000 and SHOUT! has shown in the past their great love towards the world of cult entertainment, but the surprises didn’t stop there and the announcement of possible new episodes was made by the creator of the series, Joel Hodgson.

“I am thrilled to team with Shout! Factory, one of ‘MST3K’s’ greatest supporters, to once again pick up the creative mantle. It’s been a long time coming and I feel ready for the show’s reboot and hopefully lots of new iterations in different media. I’m also looking forward to working with both creative pros and the loyal fan base who have been inspired by our humble show over the years…Actually, I’m not sure if there really is such a thing as a humble show, let me check on that,” Joel commented and the “Bring Back Mystery Science Theater 3000’ kickstarter was launched.

The project is currently live and their goal is to make $2,000,000 in the next 30 days, so the world can get new episodes and a new generation can learn the proper enjoyment of less than great movies.
