The Eyes...The Eyes.

     I was with my family at a popular Western North Carolina spot and I noticed a man who looked extremely familiar but surely, it couldn't be...

     His eyes...they gave it away more than anything else.  I whispered to my wife..."That isn't who I think it is, is it?  He looks like..."

     My wife turned around and said, "It's gotta be him.  I'm going to ask him..."

     And it turned out to be Stephen Baldwin.  I was amazed.  He immediately jumped up from a private conversation and came over to greet us.  He complimented my children, saying they are cute, shook our hands, and accommodated me in my request for a photo with him.  He was most pleasant, which is what struck me the most about this encounter, since so many Hollywood types are annoyed when they are approached in public and have an overall "God Complex."  There was something so genuine about him, he was soft-spoken, kind, and gentle.  As he held our baby, he commented on how heavy he is, then after the photograph, as I explained to my little one that he was a great actor, who was in movies and on television, he mentioned to my little boy that he was in a Flintstones movie and said to him, "Ah, now I have your attention...!"

     He told us about a few videos he has made that might interest our oldest son, and after a few minutes, I thanked him for his time and he returned to his friend who was waiting patiently at the table.

     I had never doubted that he is a great actor, now I know that more importantly, he is a great man.  Much kudos to him for standing up for his beliefs and faith amidst what some might consider a hostile environment where those who disagree with him are not always kind when offering their dissenting opinion.

     I admire that in a person.

Short Film

Blue Volcano Productions would like to take this opportunity to let you know that our short film, I Me Me We, will be complete sometime late in September and will at that time begin the film festival circuit.  While we make the rounds at various festivals, the feature-length movie of the same title will continue production with a projected completion date of mid-December.

BVP continues work on a couple of past projects, as well, and looks forward to their completion.

Stay tuned for more updates as we progress toward the end of the year.

BVP 2014

2014 is proving to be an exciting year for Blue Volcano Productions.  Sales keep coming in for our first movie, House of Poets, our initial offering to the world of independent film.  Also, selling well is The Purple Box, our second feature movie, a psychological drama that is grinding its way into a cult following.  Still is the works is BVP's Devil's Vein, a horror movie shot in the woods of North Carolina.  Sometime this year we will be releasing our second book, The Bartow Abductions, under our Blue Volcano Productions Publishing company.

We are currently in producing a short film entitled I Me Me Us, to be followed by a feature-length movie of the same title.

Thank you for your support and please tell a friend about our productions and publications.  You can purchase copies of our books and movies at various physical locations as well as online at

Catching up

We've filmed a few of the special effects shots for Devil's Vein recently.  So far so good.  I have quite a few more to acquire before all is said and done.  I have edited together 1 hr, 10 min of the movie, albeit, in rough edit form.  Still, it's exciting to see it come together though losing so much original footage requires a lot of nips and tucks to what should have been a very fit movie.  One scene, in particular, will be difficult to live without, I haven't actually decided on how I will handle it.  I'll probably just cry, then get over it.

I've written another script, a romantic comedy/drama that excites me.  I am also in talks with another writer, and it is very likely that I will soon be involved with getting this production off the ground, to whatever degree he wants my assistance.  That is awesome.  He has a great script and it will only get better after he does a rewrite or two.  I look forward to the potentiality of being involved with it.

I have a lot of things going on in my life right now, some I want to get behind me, and hope to do so damn quickly.  Anyway, I am thankful to have a wonderful wife at my side as I navigate through, around and over this crap that is trying its best to knock me down.  I love her.  She's my best friend.  And, my little dude...he definitely puts the wind in my sails as I navigate the rough waters.  I love him so much.  Two lighthouses on the shore, always shining brightly, keeping me on my path.

BVP Update

BVP is developing a script for possible production after the re-shoots for Devil's Vein are complete. It's been a long wait for the proper time of the year to roll around to acquire the needed shots but we are now actively pushing toward completion.

We currently have our eyes on two scripts, both romantic comedies, for our next production.

We are also sitting on several other feature length scripts and would be willing to option any or all to the right production company.  We have scripts in the following genres: 2 Horror, 3 Romantic Comedies, 1 Drama & 2 Psychological Dramas.

If you are interested in learning more about these scripts contact Keith at 828-782-6069.
