Star Lords (1979)

What does this entry have to do with travel? Plenty! As 12 and 13-year-olds, my then-filmmaking buddy Danny and I made this movie about traveling in space. December 2009 marks the 30th anniversary of our short film, "Star Lords." This was our first attempt at sci-fi filmed a few months before I purchased a Bell and Howell Soundstar camera -- which would have made a lot more sense with this film since we had an actual script. Using Danny's silent Bell and Howell camera, we were forced to make our own subtitles by actually holding them. "Star Lords" was shot in Danny's basement mainly on a ping-pong table. Sheet metal was used for some of the props. As with some of my videos, the files uploaded seemed to be a bit strange. I have a clearer version of this on my Vimeo channel: Look for more 30th anniversary commentaries on this blog --just to break things up.
