{Don’t} Follow The Yellowbrick Road

Last spring we were approached by an independent film company with a strange request. They were getting ready to film a psychological thriller/horror movie, not far from the premise of Blair Witch Project, and they needed to borrow a few tents.

Being a big fan of horror movies since the days of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Children of the Corn, I was excited with the idea. A few of my more level-headed (and frankly, wimpy) co-workers, wanted to make sure no one died in the tents. ”You’re NEMO's PR director, think of what this could do to our image, let alone the camping industry?!” So, I made the request, but it was never confirmed. After seeing the trailer and the way the tents were returned, I’m afraid it was denied.

The movie is set and filmed in New Hampshire (our fair state) and will be submitted to film festivals soon. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think. I’ll tell ya, I get goose bumps every time I watch it.

My name is Michael Laurino(pictured above), I played Teddy in Yellowbrickroad and can't say enough about the Nemo tents. Thanks for providing us with your quality product. I only wish I had more scenes inside the Nemo, to keep away the formidable NH bugs. The next time I trek through the Great North Woods, I'll make sure to pack a Nemo.
