The roof, the roof, the roof we will hire

We found a roof, provided by another TriggerStreeter. It's the top of the DeWitt Theatre in Auburn, Calif. It's not quite the urban setting we had in mind, but it sure beats a hill. Marior has admitted that his hill just won't do, so it looks like cast and crew will be making the three hour drive to Auburn. You can see the roof in a small image at that link.

In the meantime, Nearmiss pitched four shorts this morning:

"The Apple": A morose teenager young teenager is the target of his family's criticism even after he eases his grandmother's passing.

"72 Virgins": A suicide bomber finds himself in limbo with his victims and has to convince them to pass to the other side before he can attain Paradise.

"Do No Evil": Three sixth-graders take shortcuts as they summon a special demon to do their bidding.

"Weeping with the Fishes": Fish in one tank launch a surprise attack on another tank only to be greeted with an escalating response.

Looks like they want to buy "72 Virgins", so Nearmiss and I will spend this weekend writing outlines. I had already roughed out a synopsis for the pitch.

Bonus search engine referral:

A netsurfer in the Islamic Republic of Iran found 101 with a search for "sexy poster" on Blogger's Blog Search.

Now, if that won't tip the scales to get this post tagged in Echelon, nothing will.

Off to chip the front walk. We can't have the G-men slipping as they assault my home.

Too bad it isn't filming in New York. From the first time I read that scene, I've pictured it someplace like that roof scene in Ghostbusters, which I believe is on top of 55 Central Park West in New York City. Your roof isn't bad, of course, but it just isn't the way I imagined it.
