By Christopher Rocchio and Steve Rogers, 06/13/2007
Fox has announced that ANightmare on Elm Street and Scream director Wes Craven will serve as guest judge during the Tuesday, June 19 episode of On the Lot, the Mark Burnett and Steven Spielberg-created American Idol-like movie-making reality competition series that aims to find the country's next great filmmaker.
Regular On the Lot judges Carrie Fisher and Garry Marshall will serve as the other two members of the June 19 broadcast's three-person judging panel.
During the Craven's guest appearance, one of the five Top 15 second-group filmmakers that presented their five-minute personal film submissions to the On the Lot's home viewers on the show's June 12 episode will be eliminated and viewers will get the chance to see the work of the five Top 15 finalists that still haven't screened their films to the voting public.
The final group of five consists of Jessica Brillhart, a 22-year-old computer specialist who grew-up in York, PA and currently lives in Brooklyn, NY; Mateen Kemet, a 41-year-old teacher who currently lives in California and raised in the Bronx, NY; Jason Epperson, a 30-year-old film production company owner from Winchester, KY; Will Bigham, a 31-year-old film editor originally from Canyon, TX who currently lives in Glendale, CA; and Zach Lipovsky, a 23-year-old special effects editor from Vancouver, BC, Canada.
