In ‘God’s Country’ where double parking is not only allowed but encouraged. Its putting its hazards on yet again for some new bright lights. There has been a lot smack about a Southie reality show to a Whitey Bulger flick since the ‘God Father’ was captured last June.
Hollywood producers to filmmakers unknown have been sniffing out the streets for months like the DEA is now. South Boston has been blitzing with crews. Maybe even up to six shows have shot up premises for a Southie break-in. But it’s official, A&E is heading to City Point to shoot “Southie Rules”, according to Variety.
It’s no secret that Powderhouse Productions continues to brighten up Hollywood East. So when ‘the house’ ordered a reality series with Magilla Entertainment that follows a Southie family who battles the changes to a more affluent time here in Southie since the “yuppies” have settled in, and the average cost of living that once was is no longer RELATIVE. A&E had to pick up. It’s reality!
The cable network is known for truthful script telling and how stories originate. “Southie Rules” will be nothing like a Housewives spinoff. Powderhouse, Tug Yourgrau, an executive producer of the new reality flick has always put his best foot forward to help make Massachusetts stomp. It was a year ago, he stood tall in front of the MOTT Committee and remarkably linked the benefits that Powderhouse has experienced as a result of the film and tax credit, and the desirability of the State. Clearly it’s rollin.
The “Southie Rules” series will be true to its neighborhood pride as they conquer personal struggles while trying to stay afloat with the time. A&E has not announced a premiere date.
On October 8-10 this fall, at the PondView Equestrian Center in Pascoag, Rhode Island, the Action Seminar of the East Coast (A.S.E.) will be taking place. This three day course is being produced by Hollywood stunt coordinator Ross Clay. Clay has worked on a number of films and TV shows, including The Hurricane Fist, Lost Treasure, and Wild Things 2.
Classes will include in-depth seminars on proper conditioning to be in stunt-ready shape, how to use stunt rigging for rappelling purposes in stunts (students will need to provide their own climbing harnesses), sword training, hand to hand combat, falling and tumbling exercises and techniques, and how to fall from heights between 10 and 50 feet safely using an air bag for landing purposes.
A.S.E. is committed to preparing actors by providing them with valuable training in movie and television stunt work. Upon completion of the coursework, at the end of the weekend, students will take an exam, and upon passing it, will receive a certificate of completion that states they received training in each of the aforementioned areas by a qualified stunt coordinator.
