Thanks to Alainanoel-Wow, great stuff.
OK, here's a quick rundown of some things Alan Ball mentioned while reviewing ep. 4, Shake and Fingerpop.The cellphone that Jessica glamours from the limo driver is going to figure in season 3. Alan said to remember it. The cool travel coffins that Bill and Jessica traveled in are really for snowboards.
Ball is a big fan of the B'52's..he chose the song for the title of this ep. because the lead singer for the B'52's likes Junior Walker. He had nothing but praise for all the cast involved in this ep. Lots of admiration on Alan's part for them all.
Sookies house along with Lafayette's are located in Calabasas..I know the area well. Now this is cool..the song that plays at the closing credits and at Tara's birthday party is called "Dig" It was written and performed by none other than Alan Ball! He said they saved a lot of money by him doing it. His voice is synthesized. One of the extras at the party, (the heavy lady with the big boobs) is a porn actress and that the tatoo on her arm is of herself! Funny! Alan said that while we fans may have Team Bill and Team Eric things going, he's a Team Sam fan!
Now, possible season 3 spoilers which you may or may not have heard:
Of course Alan tried to fool us with some outrageous season 3 spoilers which had us all laughing. Season 3 will begin filming in early December. It takes about 13 days to shoot an episode..unheard of in television according to Alan. That's why we have such a great show! The thought and creativity that goes into this show is obvious and appreciated by us fans. It was a great session and I'm so glad I went!
The Hook blog also reviews the Virginia Film Festival and says of Alan Ball's presentation:
Sneak preview of True Blood’s next season– only some details are lies: Werewolves, somebody will die, Bill and Eric will sleep together, a musical episode, and one in which a tornado comes through and destroys the town are some of the tantalizing clues dropped by Ball.
