    Have any of you been following the ‘behind the scenes’ videos from James Franco on the set of Child of God? I didn’t even know there were any (apart from one pre-production clip with Scott Haze that someone (possibly Glass) posted a while back. Here’s number 7, in the cave: Link

    Haven’t watched the others yet, just found this one in Scott Haze’s Twitter feed. Will give the others a watch now.

    Hey these are fantastci videos. I love Franco’s energy…he is so alive and obsessed. I love this whole making of videos…released during the filming!

    These are the heady new days and ways of making art.

    I think Franco is like a young Peter Joseph!!!! And I’d stand on Orson Wells coffee table and shout that to the world!

    I thought the fire troubles were hilarious. I could have told them it would smoke them out when I first saw the camp fire…I was thinking to myself…”uh oh”.

    And holy crap…Scott Haze is awesome!!!! He is freaking me out…

    Just watched number 7.  I still have hopes for the film, but shooting the cave scenes in a mine seems a bit odd–as if they think that one couldn’t tell the difference between the two.  And the crew building a fire in the mine and nearly becoming overcome with smoke reminds me of a bunch of clueless kids like John Wesley, Boog, Johnny Romines and Warn Pulliam doing the same thing in The Orchard Keeper (pp. 140-142).  And these are professional filmmakers?

    Wes hello !!think this is a delightfully low (lower) budget version. I think the fire in the cave (mine) is more revealing these are city kids rather than revealing their status as film makers. Ha these days anyone can pick up a handy am and call themselves a film maker. Write a poem you’re a poet. Run for president you’re political.

     

    Rick! Hey hey! I will send you our address…it’s new. We are in the middle of a slow move…yep leaving grandmas and moving to Pilsen. We have a great cute apartment in Pilsen and the food on every street corner is amazing. I’m addicted to this torts shop with a breaded steak sandwich with pulled pork and ham, avacado, sour cream huge hot pickled peppers called “la seniorita” I have to have one once a week!

    Profile here of Scott Haze, including details of his preparation for the Child of God shoot and some photos. According to his Twitter account it sounds like the movie is on its way soon, although I was surprised to read today that Franco is bringing As I Lay Dying to Cannes while Child of God hasn’t appeared at any festival yet (and was shot before the Faulkner adaptation).

    Fire in the cave smoking the flick folks out, except Scott Haze as Ballard stayed in there and gulped in the haze. They all kinda looked like smoked out dumb asses.

    Minx you moving to Pilsen? That’s in the Czech Republic, ain’t it?
