Dracula 2000, Or Your Pizza Is Free

Lorne Michaels, creator and producer of Saturday Night Live, has a saying: “The show doesn’t go on because it’s ready.  It goes on because it’s 11:30.

On that note, here’s an article that is quite possibly my favorite thing ever written about the process of movie making.

Neck & Neck” by Rebecca Ascher-Walsh (Entertainment Weekly) is the story of – what do you when your movie is called “Dracula 2000” and  it absolutely, positively must be delivered before December of 2000?

It’s a fascinating look at the insanity of meeting an immovable deadline while simultaneously trying to put out a quality product.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
