BEHIND THE SCENES: Scouting begins for film locations
Posted On 26 Nov, 2013 By Tom Henderson
(BEHIND THE SCENES is an ongoing series offering an inside look at the making of the independent film “Ten Days in a Madhouse.”)
Legend holds that some people got into the movie business after being “discovered” at Schwab’s Pharmacy in Hollywood.
Jessica Burgoyne broke into the movie business by actually working in the movie business. Sort of.
Last year at this time, she was 26-year-old graduate of Western Washington University with a degree in psychology and no real idea of what she wanted to do next.
She knew she loved movies, so while she contemplated her options, she worked at the Kelso Theater near her hometown of Longview, Wash.
Then the Martians landed.
Indie movie director Tim Hines of Pendragon Pictures was looking for smaller venues to show his film “War of the Worlds: The True Story” on Oct. 30, the eve of the 74th anniversary of Orson Wells scaring America with his radio adaptation of H.G. Welles’ 1898 novel.
Burgoyne and Hines got to talking. Before she knew, she was Hines’ production assistant.
“I was just nerding out with him over the phone,” Burgoyne told Film Files. “I guess he really liked my energy.”

EXCLUSIVE: Newcomer Caroline Barry lands lead movie role as Nellie Bly
Posted On 23 Oct, 2013 By Tom Henderson
Caroline Barry has found one. You can play Nellie Bly without actually having to endure ten days in a madhouse.
Bly was 23 years old when she established her reputation as a journalist with her 1887 expose of New York City’s insane asylum on Blackwell’s Island. Barry will be the same age by the time she appears on movie screens as Bly in the movie “10 Days in a Madhouse,” based on the writer’s newspaper articles and subsequent book.

EXCLUSIVE: Movie celebrates 19th-century journalist Nellie Bly
Posted On 9 Oct, 2013 By Tom Henderson 2BLUE ENTERTAINEMNT
Before Nellie Bly raced around the world in 1889, she changed the world.
It was a better world than the one she found when she became a journalist nine years earlier. It was a world where a woman could be a journalist, a world where people began to care more about children, factory workers, and the mentally ill.
We live in the world Nellie Bly created — and we don’t even know it.
All most people remember about Nellie Bly, if they remember her at all, is the plucky “girl reporter” who beat Jules Verne’s fictional record by traveling around the world in less than 80 days.
Filmmakers Susan Goforth and Tim Hines say that is more than unfortunate. It is an injustice, one they intend to correct.
Their film, “Ten Days in a Madhouse,” will follow Bly’s first major expose as she goes undercover in New York City’s notorious insane asylum on Blackwell’s Island in 1887… and almost never comes out.
