Without question, "The Year One" is the wildest movie collection yet constructed in northwest Louisiana. It"s 6 acres, surrounding by many much more acres of desert-looking sand, and stands in for the Biblical city Sodom. The collection will gain oodles of screen time as soon as the Jack black color comedy debuts June.Times photographer Greg Pearson (his job-related below) and I gained a tour of it last week, led by Phillip Jordan Brooks. Brooks currently spends his weekdays showcasing the collection to scouts. The collection hopes to book another picture there, and also really it can be re-dressed together anything indigenous Sodom come a stereotypical center Eastern town to a modern sword-and-sandal epos to a western. That knows, but the site has actually tons that potential for future filming.

Here"s a little about Brooks (pictured), that some might recognize as a phase actor that graduated from Centenary College"s Marjorie Lyons Playhouse. He"s additionally a filmmaker who shot the war short "Deliberate" in the bowels the Shreveport Municipal Auditorium.After Brooks graduated, he began eying the film industry and ultimately landing his greatest movie industry gig ~ above "The Year One" as assistant ar manager.He"s between movie tasks right now, so he"s concentrating his initiatives on arising a manuscript of his own: a suspense thriller tentatively titled "Modern job Lotus." not much information yet, other than to say it"s collection in northwest Louisiana and that Brooks is modeling his initiatives after those of director Jeffrey Goodman, who funded and filmed "The last Lullaby" locally. If you desire to call Brooks, simply lemme know.
