is cursed. The summer we did most of our outdoor shooting was the third-rainiest
summer in over a century. Four different vehicles broke down which were being
used for shots. One actor, whose daughter wasn't scheduled to give birth for
another couple of weeks, dropped out of the film when she went into early
labor four hours before his all-important scene. The film crew arrived at
a "deserted-field" location, scouted out months earlier, which had
turned into a cornfield. (Read
the story here.) Even after the movie was done, the Curse of Moving continued
to rear its horrifying head. The final digital tape master of our movie, the
only one in existence, was misplaced by FedEx. At the gala World Premiere
of our film, the admission tickets got locked in the assistant director's
car (which, by the way, had also just broken down), delaying the event by
30 minutes and almost causing its cancellation by the venue. The first film
festival the filmmakers attended had technical problems and was unable
to play the DVD we provided them with.
