    There are several scenes in the video that belong to DBs I don't remember watching (and I watched more than 100).

    I still can't believe that some festivals are still showing My Pretty Pony...

    Interesting. Especially as I didn't even know Stephen King had written a Sherlock Holmes story! I thought I'd read Nightmares and Dreamscapes too. It was years ago, but I'm sure I would have remembered a Sherlock Holmes tale...

    Henry County resident Cameron Grimm was sitting at dinner with his family when he got an email. He couldn’t believe his eyes.

    “I stared at my phone and was in shock at first,” Grimm said. “My wife knew something was up. I turned the phone towards her and she had the same reaction.”

    The email he received was from none other than Stephen King, an internationally recognized and best selling author.

    Known for horror novels such as “The Shinning”, It”, and “Carrie”, King is also known for his wide ranging collection of nearly 200 short stories. One of those short stories, “The Man Who Loved Flowers”, is the basis for a film Grimm plans to direct.

    Grimm had been interested in writing since 8th grade; however, he decided to join the United States Navy after the terrorist attacks on 9/11.

    Following his military service, in 2006 Grimm was accepted to the Los Angeles Film School. Rather than pursue that interest, he decided to settle down, get married and have kids.

    In 2016, Grimm and others came together to start 5 After 5 Productions to pursue their dreams of making films. The group agreed King’s short story was an excellent story to share on film.

    “We loved the story of The Man Who Loved Flowers,” Grimm said. “It was a very complex story with a very awesome, complex character.”

    Grimm wrote a letter about his company, who he was, and what he wished to do to King in hopes that King might give him permission to make the film.

    “I must have said something that he really liked, we received the contract few weeks later,” Grimm said.

    Since announcing the film project, Grimm has received an outpouring of interest and support.

    “The support has been tremendous from people locally, from people all over the country,” Grimm said. “Stephen King fans have approached me telling me that this is their favorite story of King’s, and not to screw it up.”

    Grimm said that he is looking for locations to host casting calls and that he hopes to begin filming towards the end of July or early August.

    While the film doesn’t have a projected release date, the contract says that 5 after 5 Productions has to finish the project by May 1, 2018.

    “The goal is to complete this without rushing, and doing it right, yet do it in a timely manner,” Grimm said.

    The contract also states that the film is not allowed to make a profit, but funds may be raised to help with the film’s production.

    When the film is finished, it will be sent to Stephen King to view. Grimm also hopes to share it on the film festival circuit.

    Grimm encourages anyone who may be interested in helping the crew to contact 5after5productions@gmail.com.

    A good choice for a new film.

    I think One for the Road is one of my favourite short stories. It's also one of the few King stories I found genuinely scary. *

    *that's not a criticism of King's other work. It just means I enjoyed other aspects of those stories.

    James Douglas is learning to work with less time to make his movie.

    His 14-day shoot for The Doctor's Case, based on a short story by Stephen King, was cut to 12.

    The son of former Sault Star reporter Tom Douglas originally planned to have his 65-minute film done by October.

    He moved that deadline up a few weeks to Sept. 18 so his project can be entered for consideration for Sundance Film Festival's international feature division. The prospect of having The Doctor's Case shown at Sundance “was enough of a carrot” to get the movie done a little faster.

    Losing shooting time “really caused us to focus our energy and become very efficient with our time,” Douglas told The Sault Star. “It meant a lot of sleepless nights ... The thrill of making the film certainly kept us going.”

    The Doctor's Case has several other ties to Sault Ste. Marie. Douglas' cousin, Joanna, is a Sault native. A song by his aunt, Nancy Fairburn, who lives in the city, will be featured at the film's end. Tom Douglas and his wife, Gail, served as historical consultants.

    King's story first appeared in The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. The collection of stories marked the centennial of Arthur Conan Doyle's creation of the private detective. King allows non-commercial rights for his short stories to be brought to the stage or screen for a dollar. He watches what's created.

    An online crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/t...t-production#/) earlier this year raised $43,611 from 297 backers. Douglas now wants to raise $35,000 on Indiegogo for post-production work. His fundraising drive started in late July and has generated $5,517 in support as of Saturday.

    “We felt that it was probably appropriate to reach out to the fan community that we do have already, and some new people, to try and help us raise the funds that will be necessary to ensure that the film is finished in time for the Sundance application,” said Douglas.

    Total budget is almost $100,000. “A lot of us” involved with the film have put in their own cash to ensure The Doctor's Project is completed.

    “We're so confident the product is what we wanted it to be that we're really looking at it as an investment in our own futures,” said Douglas. “I've always been aware of how delicate the money situation is in filmmaking. It can be so expensive if everything isn't going exactly according to plan and even then it can be very expensive.”

    He's confident if The Doctor's Project can crack the Sundance lineup the prospect of seeing a King short story brought to the screen will attract film-goers. By keeping much of King's dialogue and detail, Douglas pegs the amount at 85 per cent, he anticipates he'll avoid a trap where less-than-stellar big-screen takes on King became entangled.

    Those filmmakers “make the mistake of taking the plot of a Stephen King story and then just running with that,” he said. “The words themselves get lost in that adaptation ... We've done our best to preserve as much of Stephen King's actual writing as we can.

    “If I can be a little bit boastful, I think it's probably one of the most faithful adaptations of a Stephen King story that will be out there.”

    The Doctor's Case stars Denise Crosby (Star Trek: The Next Generation), William B. David (The X-Files) and Michael Coleman (Once Upon a Time).

    Incentives for donors include a poster signed by Douglas, digital download of the soundtrack, cast and crew T-shirt and VIP invitations to a screening of the film.

    The campaign ends Sept. 12.

    “There's still quite a lot of work to do in the next three weeks, but everybody is just putting their nose to the grindstone and doing their best to get it done,” said Douglas. “I know that we will.”

    He credited the “incredible help” of his father during filming in the spring.

    “I would not have survived that shoot had it not been for my dad,” said Douglas. “He talked me down from a lot of stressful situations and offered up some very, very good advice.”

    The senior Douglas also helped ease an “immigration situation” when Crosby came up from the United States to film in British Columbia.

    “(He) cut right to the people that we needed to talk to and get the situation resolved,” said Douglas.

    Tom Douglas was impressed with the dedication of the filmmakers.

    “I've never seen anybody work as hard as that crew,” he said. “James knew his stuff. I was so proud of him. It was such a cohesive team. I am so proud of everybody.”

    SUBMISSION OPEN FOR KING ON SCREEN 3!

    I'm glad to announce the third edition of King On Screen, the dollar baby film festival in Buenos Aires, Argentina, sponsored by Restaurant de la Mente - Libros y merchandising de Stephen King and authorized by the City Council.

    KOS3 will take place on November 11th, from 2pm to 6:30pm. We decided to decrease the quantity of days and hours (last editions lasted for two days and four hours each day) in order to make it more strong and leave people anxious for the next edition.

    For this event I was able to get permission for the National Library, which is a wonderful building in a very nice area of the city. The capacity is 200 people and we're more than sure that there will be people that won't be able to enter. Due to the publication of my book last March, I got a lot of press contacts that received the information and some already showed interest in covering the event.

    Those interested in submitting a dollar baby, please contact info@restaurantdelamente.com. We won't screen dollar babies showed in previous editions of the festival or another festival in Argentina.

    You can check the website at http://kingonscreen.restaurantdelamente.com (the website is in Spanish, of course)
