World’s Biggest Little Monster Movie Enters Pre-Production!
(Teaser video below)
We’ve entered pre-production on my late 50s/early 60s era B-picture monster movie spoof Notzilla. Which means long hours, too much to do in too little time (casting, hiring, location scouting, prop building) and, oh, yeah, fun! Because if you can’t have fun making a movie called Notzilla, something is

Our budget for the feature Notzilla is precisely a gazillion times more (although precisely two hundred gazillion times less than the upcoming Hollywood Godzilla sequel), so it’ll be a full professional production. Which is a relative term when you’re talking about a wildly over-the-top farce with a guy in a rubber suit on a miniature set! Here’s the Teaser:
