Abstract

"Cover Story" piece on the filming of "Traditional Family Vampires," a movie that runs only 16 minutes, but was almost two years in the planning stage. It cost nearly $14,000, and took seven days to shoot and hundreds of hours of postproduction work. Bob Poirier, the film's 30-year-old executive producer and director, says it's not going to pay for itself, but it does show what he, as an artist, and the team he has assembled, can do. Along with his film projects, Poirier acts regularly in local theater productions, and works as a location manager and "associate producer type" for national documentaries and commercial assignments. "Vampires" premieres locally as part of "Short Queer Film Night" during Southern Maine Pride week on June 15 at the Keystone Theatre in Portland. With a biographical sketch of Poirier and his career, and further details about the movie.
