This is where we share our personal thoughts, photos, and more with our friends and the world.
Our blog is a personal diary of sorts that is posted by various crew members of the production team. Our intent is that this is also a collaborative space, a soapbox, and a space for ideas and views we'd like to share with you. Feel free to contact us or send an e-mail to email@example.com We may put your thoughts here too.
Views expressed here are those of the individuals alone and do not necessarily reflect those of Panic Productions, LLC or its sponsors.
They say, “Good things come to those who wait.” We’ve been waiting, patiently… very patiently. Keeping that in mind, I’m going to give you a little insight into the mind of George Adams, the Producer/Director of Panic Nation. Imagine a storage facility, you know the kind with big orange signs where you provide your own lock, long dusty hallways with locked doors on either side and florescent tubes flickering above you. Behind each door is a project or a trove of information that he has locked away. One door to a vast storage unit has Panic Nation scrawled on it. I sit just inside. Beyond my desk, in front of the stacks of boxes, books, video tape, computers, files, etc., etc., sits my boss. The PERFECTIONIST! I capitalized all the letters so the word stands out because George stands out. Those of you who don’t know him, he possesses traits that can drive some people crazy; such as striving to do his best, striving for excellence, working long hard hours. It drives some crazy because he demands the same of others. "Why can't they f-#&ing get it right the first time?" If i had a nickel for everytime I've heard him shout that... whew, I could produce my own film. So while these are positive traits not everyone is like him. So because of these traits, often extra time is taken or needed I should say. He is taking his time to perfect the documentary Panic Nation.
I’m not kissing up to my boss (though it reads that way), I’m merely trying to explain why this project is taking so long to be released. George is a type of “peace-maker perfectionist.” By this I mean he sticks to policy and procedures, traditions, he tries not to deviate from these and would rather get things done right. He’d rather projects get done right the first time, timely, and efficiently. Beware if they don’t. Beware if he has to do the same task multiple times. Geesh!
His producing partner (Klaudia Kovacs co-producer) is much the same way. I can’t imagine the two of them together working on the last film, Torn from the Flag of which he was the Associate Producer. He worked on TFTF for over nine years! Since I overhear some of the phone calls, I know he still works on that film too. (Click here for more info on Torn from the Flag) Because of their perfectionist traits TFTF was considered for an academy award nomination. Now if that’s not talent from a perfectionist than I don’t know what is. (It’s great to be surrounded by awesomeness, it’s perforating the air that I’m breathing. As a sign of respect I inhale and hum. He pushes me to be the best I can be. I learn just through osmosis.) So doesn’t it stand to reason that Panic Nation could be of similar caliber? This film will certainly be the best that it can be.
So now the “perfectionists” are unveiling the Panic Nation movie poster.
George says that humans can never attain perfection, but we can certainly strive for it. The sanity comes from knowing that perfection can be a goal, yet understanding we can never achieve it. I dunno, the poster looks pretty rad to me!

The winter storms begin to pass, the days are becoming sunny and brighter... but not for immigrants in Oklahoma. On November 1, 2007, the Oklahoma Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act (HB1804) went into effect. The author of HB1804 is at it again. He’s trying to pass HB3384 the “Quality of Education Assessment for Oklahoma Citizens Act of 2010.” Rep. Terrill wants to determine, at the time of a child’s enrollment, whether the child (1) was born outside of the United States, according to his or her original birth certificate or (2) qualifies for assignment to an English as a Second Language (ESL) remedial program. Rep. Terrill indicated that school districts are loosing money due to un-documented students. When asked about the local taxes that the un-documented pay through rent and/or home ownership, he said that this is an old wives-tale, that un-documented do not pay the same amount of taxes as US citizens. What? Somehow the landlord that owns the Alvarado’s house doesn’t pay the same amount of property taxes? Watch the clip here.
WTF dude? The tax assessor looks at the house our apartment building and assesses the taxes on the property. The tax assessor doesn’t care if the people living there have documentation or not, he is merely assessing the worth of the property. The owner pays the taxes based on what the assessed value of the property is. If Mr. and Mrs. Alvarado own the property somehow the value is less than if the Smiths own it? The taxes are the same! Sorry, dude, you’re not making any sense!
We need FEDERAL REFORM! Are the words Immigration Reform becoming taboo and seemingly becoming considered a social stigma?
The documentary, Panic Nation, will inform the public about the origins of Oklahoma House Bill 1804 and some of the effects this law has had on citizens and un-documented alike. Did you know that the repercussions for those who knowingly hire un-documented people and for those who knowingly harbor or shelter them is jail. It is a felony! The law basically makes a crime such as rape the same as giving Juan a ride to work! Rep. Terrill says HB1804 mirrors federal law, but he conveniently left out the legal verbiage about human trafficking from his law. Read the bill.
Hopefully we will soon see real progress toward the assimilation of these immigrants into the mainstream of our culture. We need to accept the fact that they are here and are also integrated into the economic and social fabric of our society. Let’s get real reform so these people can come out of the shadows. We’re not pro-illegal, we’re just anti-dumb laws!
Please help spread the word about our documentary project PANIC NATION. Before the end of the day, please forward this information to at least one person on your contact list.
I want to welcome all of our new Panic Nation friends to the Panic Nation movement. We now have over 1800 fans on various networks around the world.
We are planning another test screening within the next couple of weeks. More info on this soon.

Help Stop The Panic!
That’s a wrap! Okay, almost. I’m still going to pop open a champagne bottle! As you may know, a few weeks ago we had a test screening and received feedback from people who were in attendance. George Adams, the Producer/Director of our documentary film PANIC NATION carefully took the feedback into consideration. (I was impressed he even took the negative feedback and didn't show his big Hollywood ego.) He took both the positive and negative feedback and set about revising the film. For the past few weeks, George has been busy working on the new edit of the project and today, I had the chance to watch the first 60 minutes of the newest version. Can I say OH MY GAWD? Okay, I just said it. For you texters out there, that’s OMG!
Don’t get me wrong, the film was good before, but now… I don’t want to gush, let’s just say I’m so proud to have my name on this film. The film is captivating from beginning to end and will definitely be a must see film. If you’re following us, I’m sure you are interested in the impact and effects of state sponsored anti-immigration laws, human rights, hardships, struggle, and the injustices of dumb “half-baked ideas.”
So thanks to everyone who is supporting PANIC NATION. I cannot wait for you, our supporters to see this important film.
Help Stop The Panic!
PS. I asked our director when the film will be ready, he said, “It will be ready when it’s done. Go write a blog or something and stop bothering me so I can finish!” Oooo, a tad grumpy. I guess we’ll just have to be patient together.
In 2007, several state and private entities challanged the legalities of HB-1804 and filed a lawsuit. On Tuesday, February 2, 2010, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit in Denver handed down it's decision in the state's appeal of the preliminary injunction on Oklahoma's Immigration law, HB 1804. The court ruled that federal immigration law preempts two of the three employment provisions of HB 1804. However, the court left intact the provision requiring Oklahoma public contractors (including all state contractors and sub-contractors) to use E-Verify (a system even the federal government says is not completely accurate). Specifically, the court ruled that federal law preempts the part of the statute which exposed employers to a new type of discrimination lawsuit for firing a legal employee while keeping an illegal alien employed. The court also ruled that federal law preempts that part of HB 1804 which requires all businesses to obtain documentation to verify independent contractors' employment or withhold a substantial amount in taxes.
All in all, we won more than we lost. Some feel the decision on the use of E-Verify is muddled and will most likely require further guidance from the Supreme Court if necessary.
We need FEDERAL REFORM!
Test Screening Results are in!
We had our first test screening a couple of weeks ago and I’m sure many of you are looking forward to a film review and to read what people who attended the screening had to say. Here are some of the responses:
“Very informative… anyone interested in the immigration debate, should see this film.”
“Thought provoking… gives legitimate time and attention to opposing views.”
“(Panic Nation) makes you think about the lack of information that was held from the public prior to the passing of HB-1804.”
“It (Panic Nation) changed the way I look at the immigration issue.”
A majority rated the film VERY GOOD or EXCELLENT.
Everyone said they would RECOMMEND THIS FILM.
A majority found the film ENGAGING or HIGHLY ENGAGING.
A majority rated they're overall enjoyment of the film VERY GOOD and EXCELLENT.
I haven’t been on hiatus from my blogging duties, the truth is that we at Panic Productions have been working non-stop to make PANIC NATION a reality. There is far too much going on behind the scenes for me to include it all here but this is when multi-tasking is at is best. This is an amazing adventure for me so far and just when it seems that we are near the ending, we are in fact reaching a new beginning. I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself: please, someone get me cold water and a towel. This is where I go into downward facing dog pose, inhale, exhale, and relax for a moment. (I am quite talented, I'm doing yoga while on the job and typing)
After being part of the test screening I realized that this documentary film can (and will) help make a change in the way people perceive the immigration issue. I witnessed one person tell our director that this film changed the way she looks at the immigration debate. If there is a way to educate people through film, then Panic Nation is definitely one of those films. The film’s message is a realistic, honest look at the issues that affect our society and culture. I can’t wait for you to see this film for yourselves and make your own opinion. Make sure to check the Panic Nation Blog for more updates and we will keep you posted on the next test screening.
Please share your thoughts with us on any of the following social sites:
Peace and Love,
OUR FIRST TEST SCREENING! Are you excited about seeing Panic Nation? I am! We’re almost there! The test screening for Panic Nation, part of the film's production schedule, is set for this Saturday, January 16, 2010 at 5:30 p.m. However, it will be held at an undisclosed location. In a sense, it is top secret, including secret password and handshake to get in. I could say where the location is but then it would no longer be undisclosed and therefore no longer a secret for me to know and you to find out.
Okay, all kidding aside, we are having a test screening for a small selected audience. I’m very excited to see, what up-till now has only been bits and pieces viewed over our director’s shoulder, a version ready for the public to see. I cannot wait to hear what people have to say about the film.
Since I’m sort of new to this show-biz, glam-fest I asked “Why do a test screening?” What I learned is that a test screening or preview is done to gauge audience reaction. In our case, we have a three hour film (edited from over 70 hrs. of footage, down to four hrs. then down to three, whew!) Our director wants this first group to view the documentary in its current three hour length and discuss the film afterwards. He’s looking for feedback as to what is and isn’t important to the viewers. He put together a questionnaire of 40 questions and plans on having an in-depth discussion after the screening. For those who like the trivia… Silent film master Harold Lloyd is credited with inventing the concept, having used test screenings as early as 1919! Our director has Mr. Lloyd as a screen saver on his computer screen. Hmm, coincidence?
So an informal test screening is shown to small target audience to judge if a film will require editing, rewriting, or in worse case scenario require re-shooting (Oh hell no! We are not re-shooting!). The film may not be completed or at this final stage the film may be incomplete, with missing or unfinished special effects shots or sound effects, or dialogue yet to be recorded. (In our case, we are missing some graphics and some minor things like, oh I don’t know… MUSIC.) Audience responses are usually recorded informally and documented. Test screening audiences may be required not to discuss the film. A film may go through several test screenings before it premieres. I know our director has said there will be a larger test screening in about three weeks. That location will be disclosed and if you live in the Oklahoma City area, you may be invited! More on this later.
Our little preview audience for Saturday was selected from a cross-section of the various friends and relations of our team. I’m looking forward to filling out the questionaire and providing feedback to our Producer/Director. Hmmm, honest, straightforward, no holding back my opinion, honest-to-goodness feedback… this could be interesting. I’ve got a few things I’d like to “discuss” with my boss. Ah, I’ve just been reminded that I have to keep my opinions focused on the film. I guess that means I can’t talk about why I don’t have my own office.
So look for my Blog next week. I’ll let you all know how our first test screening went. Until then … I am cinematically yours!
TGIF! November 20... Where to begin? So much has happened this week. The Panic Nation team has been receiving feedback from out of state in support of Panic Nation. We spoke with a group from Kansas City. More on this later.
From all of us here at the Panic Production office, let me say thank you to Paola Alvarez de Bennett who hosted a fundraiser for Panic Nation this past Wednesday at Beatnix Café. Her support and contribution to the film is greatly appreciated. We snacked on veggies, chicken salad, various deli-meats and some right tasty cookies. The director, George Adams showed a clip from the film of a local artist, Narciso Arguelles. In the clip Mr. Arguelles’ tell his story about his experience while living near the San Diego/Tijuana border and how this affected his artwork. He moved across the border when he was 9 years old and struggled with what it meant to be Mexican, Mexican American, or Chicano. San Diego there has a large population of Mexicans living in the area. He says that there are many issues regarding illegal immigration within the vicinity and when he was in college he began to address his identity issues and what it was like being Mexican through his artwork. He stated that his mission was to use his art to inform people about the issues regarding immigration and how it affects people. Arguelles sends a powerful message that is positive, full of energy, captivating and you can tell that he really believes in change. You’ll have to see the film to hear more from him.
After the clip, Mr. Arguelles said some very nice things about our director’s courage to put this film together. He’s sure it’s going to be a powerful piece.
Will you help inform others about anti-immigration injustices and help stop the Panic? Please make a contribution today. All denominations are welcome.

Thanks again to Paola Alvarez de Bennett for hosting and Narciso Arguelles for sharing his story.
Next up … Turkey Day! Mmmm turkey.
FILE THIS UNDER HOORAY! Have you heard that Lou Dobbs is resigning from CNN? This D.Bag has been all over the news and the blogosphere with his BS, specifically targeting Latinos with his rants and raves spreading lies to an alarmed American public. Now the EX-CNN commentator, known for his tongue-lashing against immigrants, is QUITTING! Nah-nah-nah nah, hey hey, good-bye!
Dobbs has been receiving pressure from civil and human rights organizations for the use of hate speech during his much televised news show. Some of his opponents are presente.org and bastadobbs.com who worked hard and diligently campaigned against Lou Dobbs over the last several years. The resignation of Lou Dobbs is a powerful confirmation of what can be achieved when individuals come together to stand against hate. There are many Latino advocacy and immigrant rights groups who are grateful for this change. Don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out!
Not that I want to give this guy any additional air-time, The video of his resignation: http://bit.ly/10Xt1w
MOVIE POSTER! We are excited to announce that a poster is currently being designed for Panic Nation. A poster is usually one of the first elements of a film that a person will see before they even set foot into a movie theatre. As you know, a poster is part of the film process that is a key element in promoting the film and is crucial in advertising. That is why it is important for the designer to make a poster that will not only impact the person seeing it but will also make a connection for that person to the film. The film’s poster will contain large letters of the titled film Panic Nation and an image representing the significance of the film. Hopefully, the film’s poster will capture and captivate the audience's attention while appealing to their senses (crosses fingers). In the end, the poster will include a tag line, name of the director, names of cast or crew, and the release date, etc.
Amy Lamb of Oklahoma City has been hired to produce this important advertizing piece. We met with her a few weeks ago and brain-stormed some ideas. We showed her some clips of the film and discussed the premise and what we wanted to accomplish. She disappeared into her creative zone and came back with a few ideas. She met with George again here in the office and presented her ideas. One stood out and after a few notes from our illustrious leader, she went back into her zone to modify and expand. We got a first look-see a few days ago. We really liked what she came up with. A few more notes were given and now we await the next rendition. I sat in on another brain-storming session this morning to come up with the tagline. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, you’ll have to wait and see the poster. It is sure to raise an eyebrow or two.
We are looking forward to the end result. Then I can say, “Ta da! I now present you with the Panic Nation poster.” Of course, said in a lighthearted sarcastic manner. Oh and Amy, if you’re reading this … No pressure whatsoever.
ONE FINAL THOUGHT… Are you aware that it is Friday the 13th? In case you were wondering, Friday the 13th comes to light when the thirteenth day of a month falls on Friday. (wink wink) If you are superstitious you are either having a day of good or bad luck. I was even more surprised to find out that there is a term called triskaidekaphobia; its definition is for those who have a fear of the number 13. Next year’s Friday the 13th will be special as there is only one all year. Mark your calendars … Fri Aug 13 2010.

Until the next blog…
I deliberated about doing something spooktakular for this week’s blog, seeing that it’s Halloween weekend and all. I began writing some corny halloweenie jokes and nothing really stuck. As I looked over the social sites (part of my job description) for some inspiration, I began to add up some of the information, hits, etc. (also part of my job description). I pointed out to the producer how many hits we’ve had on various sites all thanks to people like you. We here at Panic Productions realize that in this day and age, we are constantly busy with a million and one things going on at any given moment. So, even though Thanksgiving is a month away, we are taking an opportunity now to say THANK YOU. Thank you to everyone who has given us a few minutes out of their busy schedule to help spread the word regarding our feature length documentary about state sponsored anti-immigration laws, PANIC NATION. Thanks to our supporters who are continuously mentioning PANIC NATION on their Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, and other various social network sites out there.
We loaded the preview a little over a month ago. Did you know that we have almost 1100 combined views of the PANIC NATION preview on various video sites around the country? The film will be released next month and we thought one of our goals should be to reach over 2000 views by the end of November. Please tell your friends to copy/paste these links on boards, feeds, their social pages, etc. so we can reach more people who have yet to find out about the film. We greatly appreciate it.

The more people we reach, the more people we can make aware of what is happening in states across this nation. Since 2007, 44 states enacted more than 200 anti-immigrant laws and the effects are far more reaching than one would suspect.
So thanks from Panic Productions. Here are a couple of Halloween jokes.
Knock, knock. Who’s there? Philip. Philip who? Philip my bag with candy.
Trick or Treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat. (Not really a joke but always makes me giggle.)
What did one skeleton say to the other skeleton before dinner? Bone-appétit.
Help the PANIC NATION movement grow! Help stop the panic.
“I--think--I--can, I--think--I--can.” I sometimes feel like that little engine from the children’s book The Little Engine That Could. We’ve put this long train together called Panic Nation and the top of the hill (the completion of the film) seems so far away yet so close. We’re climbing and just when we get the top in sight, the hill seems to grow and we didn’t make it up the hill as far as we thought. Though I’m not the director or the producer, I still feel a huge responsibility to this project. I still feel that I’m that little engine sitting somewhere near the top of the hill with the huge line of train cars behind me and I’m trying to get to the top. “I--think--I--can, I--think--I--can.”
It’s been a long week of dealing with many emotions and stress in an effort to complete the film. Some of our fellow crew members are experiencing large work overloads and many sleepless nights. Sleepless in Oklahoma City I would say but without the Empire State building … wait a minute, how many stories can I compare this to? Focus, I’m the little blue engine.
The making of a feature length documentary can take a toll on a person when dedicating an abundance of time and working passionately on any topic. Take a topic that has affected so many people around the state and the nation and that only adds to the pressure.
I’m confident that this documentary will help to spread a message about state sponsored anti-immigration laws and how they are affecting the Latino community. I’m surprised how many people are not aware of what is happening in their own backyard. It’s frustrating sometimes how many people either don’t know what’s going on or have their head in the sand and don’t want to know. We’ve even come across naysayers that believe what they believe and will never change. George says they say, “My mind is made up, don’t confuse me with the facts.”
We will make it to the top of the hill and finish the film. We will get it released and the people will come out in droves to see it. That’s when we will see the changes. This film will make a difference. As long as we can keep going up that mountain (like the little engine) and not be discouraged we will help stop the panic.
I know I can. YA
This week I had the opportunity of sitting in the editor’s chair. It was quite the experience to say the least. I am a PC kind of gal, I've seen people work with Macs and I've been around them but never had the opportunity to work with one.
Well that definitely changed this week when I attempted my first shot at working with a program called Final Cut Pro using a Mac computer. Final Cut is software where you can log and capture video from a tape deck onto a computer hard drive in order to be processed, then edited. From there the final work can be saved as a Quicktime file or other media file and uploaded to YouTube etc. The final work can also be burned onto a DVD or back onto tape for theatrical screenings.
At first, I was hesitant because I had no prior knowledge of using the program but I got comfortable and went along with the ride. Using the monitor and learning the keys was probably the most challenging but once I was able to recognize the keys and strokes everything else went smoothly.
I’ve seen George, the Director/Producer of the film, work on the Final Cut program without any difficulties. This was easily a case of the master patiently teaching the grasshopper editing techniques while the grasshopper eagerly absorbed the lessons during the session.
Of course, I cannot compete with the man, he has years of experience doing this stuff. I loved the opportunity of absorbing and memorizing the skill of editing using Final Cut.
Thanks to George for letting me understand the concept and mechanics of the editing process. Does this mean I get another credit on the documentary? I'd better re-negotiate my contract.
The Panic Nation team has been diligent and working very hard to keep this motion picture moving ever forward. To keep the public up to speed, we posted a "teaser" last January. We have also had a couple of news articles and news reports that talked a bit about the film and our progress over the last several months.
We are excited to release a new clip that has not been seen by the general public. This clip is an example of what you'll see in the feature length version of this important documentary. We anticipate your response.
Our goal is to host public screenings across the country and raise awareness of the need for federal immigration reform, state sponsored anti-immigration laws are not the answer. We "are not pro-illegal immigration, just anti-dumb laws." The federal government must pass comprehensive reform that is fair and just.
You can make a difference by supporting Panic Nation. Raising capital for the production as quickly as possible is of the utmost urgency! Our goal is to complete the film by the end of November 2009. Help us inform the country of the impact state sponsored immigration laws are having before similar laws pass elsewhere! This is a big goal, but IS within reach... with your help! Please make our goal your goal.
Meanwhile somewhere in an office on MacArthur Boulevard...
I sit in the same office as our director, George Adams, and can see his computer and television monitors over his shoulder. I come in and do my administrative and media duties, he’s been working everyday for the past two weeks on the editing. Since he sits with headphones on, I’m only able to glimpse silent images on the monitor. I recognize some of the people, others I don’t, and for me all of them are moving their mouths in silence. However, today (Aug. 24, 2009) George asked me to view what we have so far.
Another crew person and I had the privilege of watching the first 78 minutes of our documentary film Panic Nation. George told us there is no B-Roll, music or graphics yet so I wasn’t really sure what to expect other than I would finally be able to hear what the silent people were saying. We set the office up like a mini theater, George closed the blinds and the office went dark. As I watched and listened, realization set in on the true impact of House Bill 1804 and the effects of such a harsh anti-immigration law. I sat in my chair stunned and dumbstruck with information that is definitely going to be hard for people to believe. My fellow crew person actually got teary-eyed at one point and turned to give George a high-five.
Panic Nation will bring to life a topic that is merely taboo in Oklahoma and rarely talked about extensively. It really is a volatile topic and has polarized our community. Without revealing specific details, I just wanted to point out that this film is going to be chock-full of emotions and information that is going to make people wonder how the bill passed in the first place and then became a law.
I hope that Panic Nation will grab more than people’s attention to become aware of the issue and the repercussions that are going on. I hope this film makes a difference here and the country.
Help stop the panic! YA
Director George Adams gets B-roll footage at the state capitol.
It was nice learning some of what it takes to put a film together. B-roll comes from back in the day when tape decks were labeled by letter. The 'A' deck was the one that had the main tape, usually the interview subject. The 'B' deck was used to run tapes that held additional footage that coincided with what the interview subject was talking about. Since we have representatives from the state capitol in the film, George needed "B-Roll" footage of the capitol to go along with the subject. In our editing bay, we don't have two decks because we're using Final Cut Pro. So for us, the term "B-Roll" is mainly footage that George will use as a "cut away" of what the person is talking about while we hear the voice from the interview subject. He says he'll also use "B-Roll" footage to hide people coughing or when they say "uh" too much. So this day was educational and fun. YA
PS ... What's a "cut away"?
Today (July 27, 2009) the Panic Nation crew went to the OK Historical Museum and was able to capture footage of how the Latino community has influenced the state of Oklahoma.
Here are some pictures...

Hola! Thank you for stopping by and checking out Panic Nation's blog page. Our first blog is about what we are currently working on at Panic productions.
This upcoming independent film is of vital importance as it examines the subject of states enacting immigration laws. HB-1804 is known as one of the strictest immigration state laws in the country. The filmmakers look at this topic with an open, direct approach chronicling the thoughts, ideas and personal stories of those who are drafting, promoting, and passing these laws. The film also provides footage directly from individuals, business owners, professionals, and others who will be or have been affected by these laws.
If you would like to contribute to the film please go to:HOW YOU CAN HELP
