Fort Pitt

The Fort Pitt Museum is at the site of the old Fort Pitt Blockhouse at the confluence of the Ohio River. The museum is interesting and the docents dress in clothing from the era. Only the blockhouse remains but the size of the original fort was is quite large and outlined by a concrete walking path.

Some of the original artillery is still functional. Periodically they fire the big canon and the presentation is fun and LOUD!

Movies in Montclair New Jersey

We were fortunate to live in Montclair New Jersey for 15 years in a wonderful old victorian house. Montclair is just a short commute to New York City and has been used as a location for a lot of movies including “Analyze This” and “Seven.” One time when I was in Boston I called home and my daughter was very excited because Jennifer Anniston’s Trailer was parked in front of our house because they were shooting a scene in a local restaurant called The Cozy Inn. I was pissed being in Boston and having Jennifer Anniston parked at my house. One day when I was working at home a crew showed up to shoot a commercial right in front of our house. They went door to door to let us know they had permits from the city and permission to block off traffic on our street. They also gave us permission to enjoy the catering truck…so lunch was on them. You can see other images from movie locations at my commercial site.

The Waiting Game

When you think about Zombie films you got to think about the make up. Dawn of the dead in 1978 had a lot of Zombies and they all had different looks. They would arrive on the set hours before the shoot and patiently wait until one of the three make up artists could make them up. Make up would some time include bloody appendages and body parts that were usually made by the Zombie Master Tom Savini. The extras would hang out, play cards, drink coffee and other things until they could be properly gored up.
