“Never Say Macbeth” To Haunt Valley Film Festival

Still_18.jpgFrom the mind behind Fartman comes Never Say Macbeth, a decidedly different film about the superstitions surrounding the Bard’s Scottish play, scheduled to screen at the Valley Film Festival on 4 p.m. on Sept. 16 at the El
Portal Theatre

“In Never Say Macbeth, a science teacher says the word “Macbeth” in a theater and unleashes mayhem upon a Los Angeles acting troupe. This film is a cross between Waiting for Guffman and Beetlejuice,” says producer Tammy Caplan.

Caplan gives FBLA a little taste of Banquo’s feast.

FBLA 20 Questions: Tammy Caplan

imdbfartman.jpgTammy Caplan is the writer/producer/director responsible for Fartman: Caught In A Tight Ass. And she admits it.

The film was chosen to be a finalist for the Howard Stern film festival but was disqualified because she used union actors. Howard’s In Demand channel, Howard TV, loved the film so much though that they ran it on Howard TV for several months. And now, in a partnership with Atom Films, Howard TV has put the film on the web so everyone can see it.

When she’s not making the world a better place through film, the witty, infinitely patient Caplan is answering our ridiculously stupid questions.

1. What newspapers do you read? I don’t really read newspapers. I get most of my news from IMDB news. If it’s not there, it’s probably not worth knowing about.

2. Which ones do you move your lips to while reading? None, but I do point at the words with my finger while reading them.

3. Which Web sites are on your favorites bookmark (aside from FBLA, of course)? (great site for short films), (Really funny screenwriting blog but he hasn’t written since January! Damn that Josh Friedman!)

4. Where do you get your car washed? My car looks like crap. I let the rain wash it, but that never works very well. I’m too cheap and too lazy to go to a real car wash.
