It Came From Bob’s Basement

July 23rd, 2006

National Product in San Francisco is closing its doors and one of the books it was selling cheap was It Came From Bob’s Basement.

While reading the great foreward by Dennis Muren, I remembered why I love doing this stuff. Dennis tells a story about how he and Bob Burns (the author of this book) used to put on Halloween shows back in the 70s.   Bob would break out his collection of horror and sci-fi props and costumes for the show. People would line up around the block because they would recognize the movie items and be transported back in time. 

This Halloween, the Primitive Screwheads (of which I’m a member) are putting on a Haunted House from October Friday the 13th -31st. And I think I might invite Dennis and-or Bob. I saw Dennis at Siggraph last year…maybe he’ll be there this year. Then when he shows up… I’ll shove my demo reel into his hand!

How’s that for sneaky-yet-effective 3D job-hunting ideas?
