Guy Hasson’s Film Journal, Entry #6: Most Ridiculous Rehearsal Moments

Posted by on Aug 29, 2012 in Apex Publications Blog: Matters of SF, Fantasy, and Horror, Artist Musings | 0 comments

Time for Some Comic Relief Writing a film journal makes you retrospective. As we’re edging towards the end of rehearsals for The Indestructibles, my low-budget epic SF film, I think it’s time for some comic relief. Here are the three most ridiculous moments had over the years, rehearsing for theater and film. Ridiculous Moment #3: Getting Out of the Cage At third place, we’ve got a moment most of us have experienced, though perhaps not in such an extreme way.

Welcome to this issue of 16 Page Saturdays.  Today, we have a selection, hand-picked by Apex publisher, Jason Sizemore. In this novel, Ray takes us to a land that has been overtaken by the Walking Dead.  As if zombies aren’t enough to make the few remaining citizens shake in fear, there are also thieves, gun-happy  neighbors and cults to worry about. Ever wondered what you would do in this situation?  Now you can find out as Ray Wallace allows you, the reader, to star as the main character.  This novel is described as “A One Way Out” novel but really, it’s more of a “Find Your Own One Way Out” novel since it’s wonderfully...
