Being in the movie business isn't something I like to talk about much.  I like to talk about it a lot.  Not for the reasons everyone thinks.  It's not about ego or bragging.  It's about the whole process of what it takes to make a movie.

I was fortunate that the folks making "Kalamazoo?" back in 2004-2005 asked to come on the air and ask for extras from the general public.  At the time I had no idea what it took to make a movie and was thrilled that they gave me a small speaking part and many of my family members we extras in the film.

At first we just came to set locations and watched.  It was very, very cool with a whole lot of hurry up and wait.  By the way, I did get my own trailer.  It was about the size of a shower & tub enclosure.

So anytime a movie is made in Michigan I get excited and hope it attains some semblance of popularity.  "Werewolf Island" was made recently in Michigan and now we'll see if it gets any notoriety.

It was originally titled "The Legend Of Dog Lady Island" which is the subject of Monroe, Mi folklore about a old widow  and her pack of Doberman pinschers.  All of the movie was shot in Michigan and many scenes in Monroe.

"Werewolf Island" is being released this week on Amazon Prime, Google Play and Comcast Xfinity.  If you want to check out more of the details, click HERE.
