The Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer reported on REMAINDERED today. They said, in part:
"Remaindered" is about a once famous and successful author who is on a downward spiral in his career. He is in the midst of a self-funded book tour, which is humbling for the author.
The author then meets a fan, and the encounter turns murderous in the comedy/mystery film.
"Remaindered" takes its name from the term for a book being relegated to a store's bargain bin.
The film will be about 20 minutes long. Matt Branham, an English professor at Owensboro Community & Technical College, wrote the music for the movie.
Todd Reynolds, a local actor, is playing a detective in the movie. He also played a police officer in "Murder in Kentucky," a short film shot during the 2009 International Mystery Writers Festival.
"The movie is terrific," Reynolds said of "Remaindered." "Lee writes with a lot of humor. ... It's almost kind of a Walter Mitty-esque look (through) the eyes of an unintentional killer. It's a lot of fun."
Scenes will be shot around Owensboro and Henderson, including at the home of Roxi Witt, general manager of the RiverPark Center; Danhauer Drugs; and Sureway Food Store in Henderson.
Goldberg first came to Owensboro for the 2008 Mystery Writers Festival.
The film's funding is coming from several entities, including the RiverPark Center, Kentucky Wesleyan College, Brescia University and Owensboro Community & Technical College.
The movie shoot is an educational opportunity for students at the three schools. Goldberg is leading one workshop at each school during his visit to Owensboro.
Students are also invited to watch the film shoot, where Goldberg will explain the filmmaking process.
Goldberg said one reason he works with students is because he learned a lot from visiting professionals while a student at the University of California, Los Angeles.
"I also feel the need to give back. ... What I get out of it (is) it absolutely reinvigorates my love for what I'm doing," he said.
