Vampire Fan Film Project Cruise out of New Orleans

I forgot to add that the winner of the Fan Film Project gets a walk-on part in a movie that is being filmed in New Orleans.

Vampire Fan Film Project Cruise out of New Orleans

I got the webpage for the Vampire Fan Film Project Cruise posted. It looks like it will be a blast.
The cruise leaves from New Orleans on March 21, 2010 and goes to Costa Maya, Santo Tomas De Castilla, Belize City and Cozumel. 8 days and it is a great price. I am pretty bad with cameras, but the list of expert film folks who will be on board to help with the film project is impressive.

Vampire Baseball™ New Orleans selling quickly

There are only 4 seats left in section 119 (diamond seats.) These are the up-close and personal seats.

Something New and Fun

This just hit my desk. It is a cruise, but not just a cruise. After the Vampire Baseball™ event in New Orleans, a Vampire Fan Film Project has started. The project takes place on a Carribean cruise and there will be actors, directors, editors, etc. on board who will teach/help the participants how to make a real film. How sweet is that?

There is not a website for this yet, but here is a link to a pdf describing the project.

I get to go to Vampire Baseball™

Well I certainly am excited. I have been asked to join the team in Portland, Oregon on July 4th to help out with the Vampire Baseball™ game. After all this time of updating and posting the cast pictures on the Twilight Fan Trips™ website, and keeping FanTrips.Travel up-to-date, I get to take a small break and join the cast and crew from the Twilight and New Moon movies in Portland. I will admit, I don't know much about baseball, but who cares. Watching the cast and crew play Vampire Baseball™ is going to be a hoot!

Now my only issue is I don't know which autograph I want to get. I am going to need some help on this one.
