    So in Bermuda you can't just stream from Nexflix I am guessing due to copyright and international aw or some jive?

    Laws of Gravity worked out for you? I hope so. I didn't know that girl from anywhere but in that movie, man she has aged in 2 decades! I have enjoyed that movie for 19 years. I try to watch it once a year just to keep it near, kinda like how people like to review movies for tradition.

    It's just a linking bug with the site. Cody knows about it already I believe.

    Ya, netflix comes up with an error saying you cannot view it in your area unless I mask the IP. Lots of internet video sites are like that. I have to do the same thing to watch my NBA league pass games.

    The movie was good, crazy seeing Edie Falco that young. She was excellent in Sopranos, one of my favorite shows. All those actors have been in Sopranos looks like too. You may want to check it out, great series. Just wish they had got back at Frankie (I think that was his name).

    She looked ok back then, but Arabella Field (johnny's girl) ....... OMG I have loved her for 20 years. She was a smoking pistol.

    She looks totally different today, but at 45 she's still a nice looking lady.

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0275890/




    The most interesting thing you'll ever read about the movie Laws of Gravity is here.


    Next Wave Films: Ultra-Low Budget Filmmaking - The ABC's



    Laws of Gravity Budget

    Previous no-budget experience: Nick Gomez had written and directed two shorts- No Picnic and Wild Kingdom, both produced by Bob Gosse. The first was made when they were film students at SUNY Purchase. After film school, Gosse produced Gomez'sWild Kingdom. Gosse and Larry Meistrich then founded The Shooting Gallery, a filmmaker's cooperative, which quickly became a hub of activity and energy, producing many shorts in its first year. Laws of Gravity, the first feature produced through the Shooting Gallery, utilized the resources and talent that it had attracted, as well as the many lessons that had been learned in no-budget production.

    Financing: "We had $35,000 in place before I wrote the screenplay," Gomez explained during an interview at the Toronto Film Festival. It was raised from individuals - "uncles and friends from college."' During post-production, Larry Meistrich raised another $3,000.

    Planning and Scripting: Gomez's model was Gus Van Sant's Mala Noche, "a fine piece of work which was made for $25,000-30,000." Gomez wrote a script that could be made for $35,000. It included "a lot of day exteriors," and was to be filmed in his neighborhood. The film had to be shot quickly using actors and crew members willing to work for deferments instead of cash. Gomez knew that finding the right D.P. was crucial, since he needed the film shot hand-held to stay within his budget.

    Casting: Gomez wrote a few parts for actors he knew he wanted to use (including Edie Falco, Paul Schulzie, and Saul Stein). To cast the other parts, he placed an ad in Backstage and saw almost 500 actors, asking each one to read a monologue he had written. Once he narrowed it down to the finalists, he put people who were the best choices together. There had to be chemistry because the film was to be done as an ensemble piece.

    Rehearsals: Gomez spent four weeks rehearsing almost every day. He started with the script, then had the actors improvise. They did a dozen rehearsals with no script. "We rehearsed like a band. As long as everything was in the right key, we kept going. If someone was off-key, I would tell them." He then rewrote incorporating the best of the improvisation. "By the time we got ready to shoot, the actors were the characters." Some scenes were heavily scripted, and others were improvised (including scenes where four characters talk at once).

    Equipment: Camera: Aaton LTR 7. Almost all of the film was shot hand-held. A wheelchair was used for dolly shots.

    Stock and Processing: Kodak 16mm 7296 interiors and night exteriors); Kodak 7248 (exteriors). The shooting ratio of 3:1 wouldn't have been possible without what cinematographer Jean de Seconzac described as Gomez's "'decisiveness." "I would ask to do another take and Nick would say, 'We don't have time for that. We are shooting this movie now; we'll shoot another movie later." There wasn't any navel gazing."

    Crew: Usually the production used a crew of fifteen or sixteen (not including cast). For more complicated scenes (e.g. night exteriors), it grew to 24 or 25. Gomez found de Segonzac, a very talented cinematographer with his own equipment who had primarily shot documentaries. De Segonzac explained how he managed to shoot the film hand-held: ""First we would rehearse the scene without camera, then we would do it with camera and I would choreograph the camera movement. We then did one slow motion run-through and then shot the scene. Then we would shoot it the opposite way." (For example, right to left became left to right.) He noted that the biggest difficulties presented by his constantly moving camera were those faced by the focus puller, and the sound man who was "'mixing and running at the same time." Fortunately, due to the weeks of rehearsals, the actors "never flubbed their lines so we didn't have to cut in the middle of a scene." Even though $5,000 had been set aside for the D.P., de Segonzac was so committed to the project that he put the money back into the production, agreeing to a deferment instead.

    Locations: The script was written so it could be shot in Gomez's Green point, Brooklyn neighbor hood using "places I knew I could get for nothing. One set (the main character’s apartment) was built at the Shooting Gallery for $239.

    Schedule: Twelve consecutive days.

    Cost of Getting the Film in the Can: Under $ 10,000. As Bob Gosse explained, "We would not pay bills until the lawyers came after us. That way we also got interest on the money we had raised."

    Post- Production: The film was edited at the Shooting Gallery. The Power Station (a new state-of-the-art recording studio) agreed to do a free mix in return for a prominent credit. Opticals were avoided by cutting to black throughout the film.

    The only expenditures made were those absolutely essential to getting a print that could be shown at festivals (New Directors; San Francisco; Boston; Toronto; Mill Valley). All other expenditures were postponed until after a distribution deal was made (including music rights, E and 0 insurance, internegative, interpositive, and composite).

    She has never been the most attractive of ladies (Edie Falco) but is not unattractive and can act her *** off. Certain strength about her, and when she starts screaming and yelling it is almost debilitating lol. Real mafia queen type.
