Lights, Camera, Action! – Movie Making Tips for Beginners & Pros

Welcome to “Lights, Camera, Action! – Movie Making Tips for Beginners & Pros,” my version of Nickelodeon’s classic “Standby...Lights! Camera! Action!” which was hosted by Leonard Nimoy.

Twice a month I will post about five videos which relate to film making in one way or another. At times I may also post a craft type video which, with a bit of imagination can be used in a film one way or another even if it’s in the background.

Keep in mind that the topic of the video can be adapted to whatever type of film you’re working on. For instance, if I post a video about how to make a science fiction set, or prop, remember that the information is still valuable to use but you can make it fit whatever you happen to be working on at the time.

As mentioned above I will be posting to LCA twice a month in rotation with Mystery Monday. Enjoy.

Classic Nick Rocks – The Cockroaches vs The Wiggles

Most households with young children have undoubtedly head of the smash children’s group The Wiggles. But did you know that before Anthony and Jeff dawned their famous blue and purple skivvies they were topping the charts with The Cockroaches with hits like, “She’s The One,” "Double Shot (Of My Baby's Love)" and "Hey What Now!"?

What most fans, of either group, know is that band member John Field, Anthony’s brother, who wrote all of the big hits for The Cockroaches took some of their songs, reworded them and turned them into hit songs for The Wiggles! Below you will hear the original songs by The Cockroaches and then the Wiggly version. Which one do you like best? Or, like me, do you love them all?

Mystery Monday – Ladies of Mystery

Happy Labor Day and welcome to “Mystery Monday”, a bi-monthly, new feature here at The Classic Nickelodeon Fan Blog. “Mystery Monday” will feature both mystery films and retro science fiction films; this is my version of “The Third Eye,” but without the paranormal aspect.

As mentioned, “Mystery Monday” will be a bi-monthly feature alongside, “Lights, Camera, Action! – Movie Making Tips for Beginners & Pros,” which will be featured the other two Mondays of the month. It is, as the title suggest for both beginners and professional filmmakers and is of course my version of “Standby! Lights! Camera! Action!”

To start things off I’d like to introduce you to two of my favorite crime solving Ladies of Mystery; Kellie Martin staring as “Samantha Kinsey” Samantha is an avid murder-mystery fan who inherits a bookstore from her uncle who passed away in the first film. Her extensive knowledge of murder-mystery books assists her in her amateur sleuthing.

Our second Lady of Mystery is Candace Cameron Bure who stars as “Aurora 'Roe' Teagarden” in the Aurora Teagarden Mysteries. Roe is a librarian in the small town of Lawrenceton, Washington who runs the Real Murders Club.

So, without further ado, welcome to Mystery Mondays!
