Invaders from Mars (1986)
I was a child 'extra' in this movie
The movie itself is pretty campy and you can't expect a whole heck of a lot out of it, just some cheesy 80's sci-fi fun, but what stands out for me was that I was an extra in this movie and got to experience the making of the movie first hand! I remember, I was in elementary school and got the opportunity to be in this movie. The first day that I participated was at the school scenes. At first I was one of the kids that was playing outside in the yard and then I was one of the kids walking in the hallway of the school. I can't recall if I was in the classroom, I haven't seen the movie since right after it came out and I just ordered the DVD so I'll have to check it out.
The other day that I was on set in a state park that was in Malibu, CA where they filmed several different scenes. One of which was a yellow school bus with kids/drones on it. I was in that bus, just staring forward with no expression, as per the direction from Tobe Hooper.
It was a fun experience and my first time ever in the movie biz so I'll always have a special little place in my heart for this movie. Good times!
A Piece of Star Wars History Captured on Film
Yes, I loved it! And I loved it because I was LIVING it! So in a sense, Starwoids is also a video journal for me, at least the parts that had to do with the Chinese Theatre line.
The experience was something that was new for all of us to do. I never imagined taking part in a 6 week line event but I did it anyways because hey, why not, what's life without taking some chances and doing something crazy once in a while. In the end, I would not change the experience for the world. We had so much fun out there doing it and we forged friendships that will last a lifetime.
I also have something to say to Chris Gavez who wrote a comment here somewhere about how much of a loser we all were.
First of all, throughout all 3 line events (one for each prequel), we raised around $70,000 for the Starlight Children's Foundation with the donations we received during each 6 week line-up. Oh yeah, we're losers.
And yeah, you can find me on Myspace, Chris, I'm easy to find, just search my first and last name. And go ahead, look at my pictures, see how much of a loser I am with that beautiful girl who happens to be my girlfriend of almost 4 years now. Oh yeah, and you mentioned how we're all virgins too, right? lol Yeah, I think you're the loser, dude. Don't be jealous that we all had fun while you sat home on your ass, always dreaming of doing something fun in life but instead, watched videos of others, like US, and couldn't do anything more than try and talk trash to us online. LOOOOSER!
