The tech may be low, but the concept is always high

We've gone national, making it into... Maclean's! In an article entitled "Low-tech chic," writer Ryan Bigge makes a very flattering mention:

...Automatic Vaudeville Studios, a Montreal film collective, draws inspiration from classic black-and-white films for their hilarious (and self-financed) movies.
Thanks Ryan!

It is sizzling hot here at Automatic Vaudeville Studios, and for once we're not talking about a cavalcade of ingénues ready to see their names in lights.

It's the heat, folks - it's gumming up the works. Tumbleweeds are (virtually) rolling through our once bountiful blog and the cameras - whirring just weeks ago on Clock Strikes Doom! - are now cobwebbed and forlorn. BUT NOT FOR LONG!

This is what we call the calm before the storm.
AT THIS VERY MOMENT a parade of motion picture entertainments is steadily marching its way towards "ACTION!"

Change is afoot. Rumours are flying around town. Big announcements are about to be made.

Here are some "blind items" to whet your appetite.

What "hysterical" AVS classic is finally getting a sequel?

What "shameful" art house sensation is due for not one but TWO new installments?

Which highly "recommended" AVS yuk-fest's stars have been reunited for a number of gut-busting DVD commentaries?

Which detective "cousins" might soon be battling the forces of darkness?

How in the world are two "spaceships" gonna get married?

Best guesses win free tickets to see the hit comedy Aurore, now playing at a theater near you.

AVS News Round-Up!

* After a week of tortured hand wringing and melancholia, AVS is back on-line and more blog-happy than ever! Neal Anderson's long awaited take on Spielberg's War of the Worlds is finally up on Screen Test!

* Folks in the vicinity of St. John's, Newfoundland, are advised to drop what they are doing and run over to the LSPU Hall Theatre, where they can catch The Recommendations screening as part of The Nickel Independent Film & Video Festival tonight, July 8, at 7PM!

* Early rushes indicate Perlmutter's The Clock Strikes Doom! could be a big blockbuster sensation, owing to "dazzling" cinematography and starmaking turns from its luminous leads Vanessa Johnson & Eric Hart.

* Wild rumours about the long delayed Sophisticated Detectives sequel being suddenly rushed into production have studio tongues a' wagging like crazy!

More big scoops soon! Watch the skies!

Perlmutter has just wrapped principal photography on his shock thriller The Clock Strikes Doom. The film, which is rumored to have a twist ending more shocking than Forget Paris, is planned for an early fall release date.
