1st November 2007 : We've revamped our TRIVIA section to include cool facts and trivia about Home of the Giants, plus the significant milestones in its journey from script to screen. Here's the latest entry...

DID YOU KNOW?
ASPECT RATIO : Director Rusty Gorman chose to film Home of the Giants in an aspect ratio of 1.85:1 ( instead of 2.33 :1 which is also called wide-screen ) because basketball is a vertical game and he did not want to stretch the frame too far horizontally .

29th October 2007 : Ryanne, webmaster for the Official Ryan Merriman Website, posted an interesting observation and question about Home of the Giants at the Official Haley Joel Osment Message Board.

We have seen 4 different runtimes so far:
92 minutes (variety.com)
101 minutes (hollywoodreporter)
102 minutes (CFF)
104 minutes (HFF)

I wonder which is the real one.

The answer can be found right here in our TRIVIA section. As confirmed by director Rusty Gorman and editor Dan Schalk, the correct ( and official ) runtime for Home of the Giants is 104 minutes . It looks like the recently concluded Heartland Film Festival is the only one to have gotten the runtime for Home of the Giants correct !

24th October 2007 : The Indianopolis Star features a brief but interesting interview with Haley Joel Osment today, speaking with Haley about the current status of his career, and his role in Home of the Giants.

23rd October 2007 : The recently concluded Chicago International Film Festival, and the Heartland Film Festival, currently playing, have both created a lot of media awareness for Home of the Giants, with both positive feature articles and reviews being published about the film.

5th June 2007 9am Pacific Time : Today we say goodbye to our familiar banner as we replace it with a newer, edgier one which is more reflective of what the film is all about . When the following banner was designed about a year and a half ago, details about what Home of the Giants was about was still extremely sketchy , and this banner which had an upbeat look was designed for the Tribute site.

With the May 9th prerelease screening of Home of the Giants, it was obvious that a new banner needed to be designed, one that is better representative of the film. As the film finds a distributor and the final artwork and marketing of the film worked out, this new banner will also make way for one that will be in line with the final approved movie poster. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the new look of our Tribute Site banner !

We are now doing our best to get the video interview cleared and approved by SymPics and Haley's agent before releasing it right here on the Tribute site ! I've just seen the video footage, and it totally floored me. Haley up close and in real life looks absolutely amazing !

It is a great video interview, and I believe the first one that Haley has given specifically regarding his role in Home of the Giants !

10th May 2007 8.30pm :  Christopher York and his wife Elizabeth had been extras during the filming of Home of the Giants, and they managed to get seats to the prerelease screening of the film through this Tribute site. Chris writes :

"My wife and I went to the movie and had a great time. I really think that everyone will enjoy this movie. We weren't really sure what the movie was about for a long time and now that we have seen it, it was slightly different than what we were expecting. It was better!!! The meet and greet was fun, but our camera's battery died when we were taking pictures outside of the Zanuck theater. Being on the VIP list was cool. We felt like big timers for a short time. We did get to meet Haley and Ryan , but it was just a "hello" "nice to meet you" kind of thing. They were nice though. All in all, it was a great experience and we look forward to buying it on DVD. We saw ourselves in the movie and we just think that is the coolest... lol. " - Chris York

9th May 2007 11.30pm Pacific Time :  One of our regular forum members, Ariel , is first in through the gate with a short but sweet capsule review of Home of the Giants ! She says ...

"So, the movie... Well, I said I wouldn't give spoilers, but it was really good. Very well acted, well paced, well plotted. I thought they captured the atmosphere of a small Indiana town well. John ( my husband ) , who is a bug on sports movies, said it's right up there with the best of them, and he thinks it will do well in the market. The only thing I didn't like, honestly, was the way Danielle's character got short shrift. She didn't have a lot to do. But she did well with what she did do. "

So there you have it ! The movie sounds great ! Ariel also writes about her close encounter with none other than Haley Joel Osment ( and his father , Eugene ) , so don't miss her full story entitled, So, I met Haley !

9th May 2007 8.30pm Pacific Time :  Even as I write this , more than 300 film goers are being enthralled by the first ever screening of Home of the Giants on big screen in the Zanuck Theater in Los Angeles. Those fortunate to be in the VIP list will in the next hour or so have the chance to rub shoulders with the cast and crew of Home of the Giants, and we look forward to hearing the post screening feedback about the movie from those very same fans ! Keep watching this space ....

9th May 2007 10am Pacific Time :  With only nine and a half hours to go before the historic first prerelease screening of Home of the Giants in Los Angeles, we can release two important pieces of information .

Members of the Page High School Band, from Greensboro, North Carolina participated in Home of the Giants as the pep band for the Giants and the Muncie Red Devils. About forty students from the Page High School Band participated in about seven days of filming, serving as extras in several scenes including those from the pep rally and basketball games. We hope to hear our very own fight song, "Hail to the Buccaneers" during the movie. Haley Joel Osment and Ryan Merriman were kind to pose in a picture with band members. We have a huge autographed copy of that photo hanging prominently in the front of our band room. We all look forward to the release of Home of the Giants with great anticipation!

My daughter and I were extras in the Winston Salem coliseum.  It was so much fun cheering when they said to cheer and being disappointed when they said be disappointed.  The dummies really surprised me.  Lots and lots of dummies, and I'm not talking about the actors or the production crew.  We were around for one of the later scenes where the bad guy came, he was taken away  and everyone rushed the court.  Thanks for the opportunity.  Let me know if you need extras in the area for another movie.

Thanks for sharing that, Lynn ! When the film opens, we'll all be watching the crowd scenes to see if we can spot those dummies !   Do check out the many interesting ANECDOTES from fans from the set of Home of the Giants, including one from Lori Long , who was at the Wake-Forrest shoot . Keep those interesting stories coming , everyone !

4th October 2006 : So, did you manage to guess correctly which North American Singer and Musician has filmed scenes with Haley Joel Osment for Home of the Giants ? For the answer, don't miss our Trivia section complete with a wonderful new picture of Haley Joel Osment and the musician !

4th October 2006 : Another prototype poster has appeared on the Conquistador Worldwide Media website . We are tracking the evolution of the Home of the Giants poster as it goes through its various incarnations until the final artwork is finalised. In the meantime, for our comments on this latest incarnation, click on the poster below .

1st October 2006 : Ok, here's an interesting piece of trivia that hasn't been leaked out anywhere yet , so remember that you heard it here first . To make it a little bit more fun for everyone, I'm not going to give you the answer until the 4th of October , to give everyone a chance to crack your brains and come up with some guesses . The big question is this :

Which North American musician and singer appears in scenes with Haley Joel Osment in Home of The Giants ?

I must qualify the above question by saying that there were scenes that were shot during principal filming with Haley and this musician, who even has a few lines of dialogue in the film . Of course,it still remains to be seen whether or not these scenes end up in the final cut of the film, or on the editing room floor , but nonetheless, it was an interesting cameo for this North American musician. If you think you know the answer to this , or at least want to make some guesses, post your thoughts over at our forum . No prizes this time, but let's just have a little fun with this .

30th September 2006 : These are the last 4 images in this wave of production still . Check back tomorrow for an interesting piece of trivia about Home of the Giants !

27th September 2006 : Fresh from SymPics comes this mysterious looking still from Home of the Giants featuring Danielle Panabaker.

This great picture notwithstanding, the biggest news of the day , of course , is that the Conquistador Worldwide Media website for Home of the Giants is back online again , after being taken off for almost a week, and they are streaming the three and a half minute unofficial trailer for Home of the Giants complete with sound now . Although not official yet, it looks like SymPics may be working with Conquistador to find a distributor for the film, both domestically in USA as well as internationally , and the Conquistador website has started streaming this temporary trailer for Home of the Giants even as it begins marketing the film . Enjoy this version of the trailer while it is still up, as it will definitely be replaced by the definitive trailer as soon as it is officially released by SymPics International, Inc.

Thank you so much, SymPics ! Here's the first one .... enjoy !

6th September 2006 : Taylor, of Alexz-Johnson.net and Ryanne , number 1 fan of Ryan Merriman and webmistress of the Ryan Merriman Fansite, scored a coup today by being the first to discover a trailer for Home of the Giants online at the Conquistador Worldwide Media website .Conquistador Worldwide Media was founded in March 1993 as a foreign sales and distribution company for film and television product, but is now heavily involved in financing and production as well. Could this be an indication that they may possibly distribute Home of the Giants either domestically in USA or in foreign markets ? Although a trailer for Home of the Giants is now screening on their website, it is UNLIKELY that this is the official trailer for the film. The trailer is unusually long , and seems extremely similar to the one screened unofficially in conjunction with SymPics International's film , " National Lampoon's Pucked" in Greensboro when it premiered in February 2006. Of note is the absence of the trailer on SymPic's official Home of the Giants website, and also on this Tribute site , because as far as we know, no official trailer has been released at this current time. Still , it is interesting to see this provisional trailer, albeit without any sound. Catch it while you still can, because it may not be online for long, being an unofficial trailer.

Another interesting thing to note on the Conquistador website is the expanded film synopsis , which you can read by clicking on the image below :

Finally, don't miss seeing the series of images from this unofficial trailer , painstakingly screencaptured by Ryanne . That was an incredible and garguantan feat ! Thanks so much for these images, Ryanne !

2nd September 2006 : Our 2 week series of Production Stills, from Day 12 and Day 14 of filming, ends with this beautiful picture of Haley and Ryan together in intense discussion . Check out the Gallery to view all the production stills released so far ...

31st August 2006 : Another powerful image of Ryan Merriman as basketball star Matt on the court in Home of the Giants . Check back this Saturday for one final great picture of Haley and Ryan from this series of Production Stills !

29th August 2006 : We are really excited to be able to release this production still of Kenneth Mitchell as Keith Morrison in Home of the Giants . Kenneth Mitchell was last seen on big screen in The Recruit (2003) and Walt Disney's 2004 film, Miracle .

27th August 2006 : We received this interesting anecdote from Chris Arnett, who was Haley's stand-in for a couple of days of filming. Thanks, Chris , for sharing that with us !

My name is Christopher Arnett. I worked on the set of this movie for about 5 days. I was asked to be Haley's stand-in for two of those days where I met him and was quite pleased to see how cool a guy he actually was. I was also a featured extra in the basketball scene where the Giants win the basketball game. It was a lot of fun working with all of you and I have to say that it was a great experience because I haven't done anything really like that before. I have quite a few experiences with the movie including one when we were playing as the dummies and scaring other extras when they were looking into the audience. Thank you for this experience and I am glad to have worked with all of you.

26th August 2006 : Haley Joel Osment and Ryan Merriman in a pensive moment in Home of the Giants.

Just to clear the air, yes, we are aware of what is in the news , and on a personal note, as webmaster of this Tribute site, I have issued my personal statement on the matter, which you can read at our forum. Over at this site however, we are choosing to move on, and to focus on what is important, which is the upcoming completion and hopefully earlier release of Home of the Giants . Both Haley Joel Osment and Ryan Merriman have worked extremely hard on this film, under the sure helm of director Rusty Gorman , and we certainly don't want to lose sight of that ! I personally believe that Home of the Giants is going to be one terrific film, and can hardly wait to see it theatrically ! Do check back with us , because we are going to be releasing some really beautiful images from the film over the next two weeks . Coming right up, on Sunday .... a wonderful picture of Ryan Merriman , and following that, another great picture of Haley and Ryan together in the movie .

Meanwhile , over at Ryan Merriman's Official Website , Ryan posts this little piece of good news ....

IT REALLY IS A WRAP !

 

OK ... OK... so we have teased you now for several months, but this time it really has happened. Finally, after numerous delays due to cast and production schedules, "Home of the Giants" has finally wrapped up filming. With only four days of scenes to finish, it was beginning to look like HOTG might never get completed. It had to be done, the scenes left to shoot were pivotal to the story. Ryan is glad to finally have this one "in the can" as they say. Now editing can be done and distribution of the film can begin. Rest assured that all you Ryan and Haley fans out there will not be disappointed and it will be well worth the wait. Stay tuned for more news as it happens on this one.

 

10th August 2006 : The first pictures from last week's extra days of filming for Home of the Giants are trickling in . An anonymous fan sent in these two images of Haley Joel Osment taken just last week.

21st July 2006 11.30 pm : HALEY ACCIDENT UPDATE : GREAT NEWS !!! Haley is home now , according to the latest report by E Online ! The following is excerpted , full article here .

Haley Joel Osment has put in enough face time with the doctors. The 18-year-old actor was released from Pasadena's Huntington Memorial Hospital Friday after being treated for a broken rib and arm lacerations he suffered in a Thursday morning car crash.

"Haley has been released from the hospital and is resting comfortably at home," his agent, Meredith Fine, said in a statement.

The L.A. County Sheriff's Department said yesterday that there was no reason to suspect that illegal substances had anything to do with Osment's accident, but no cause was suggested as to why or how he lost control of the car. The Sixth Sense star was wearing a seatbelt, Fine said, contrary to early reports stating he wasn't strapped in.

20th July 2006 10.30 pm : HALEY ACCIDENT UPDATE : E Online has released news with word from Haley's agent, Meredith Fine , that answers a lot of questions . Full article here .

Osment's agent, Meredith Fine, says that contrary to an initial report from the sheriff's department, the actor was wearing a seatbelt when his car crashed, but had removed it prior to the deputies' arrival.

"He removed the belt to climb into the back seat where he was better able to exit the vehicle," she said. "The driver's side door was blocked by the air bag that opened on impact."

Osment was admitted to Pasadena's Huntington Memorial Hospital where doctors treated him for a broken rib and lacerations on his arm. The hospital said he will remain overnight for observation.

"Haley is doing well," Fine said, adding that the star is expected to make a "quick recovery."

20th July 2006 10.30 am : HALEY ACCIDENT UPDATE : CBS has a news video clip about Haley, who is now hospitalised at the Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena. Leave your get well wishes for Haley at our Forum .

20th July 2006 9.30 am : HALEY ACCIDENT UPDATE : We just received this piece of good news ...

KTLA morning news just had a report on Haley and his accident , and it looks like he is "okay".

Nothing confirmed or anything, but in the report they said he had just dropped some friends off and was alone and on his way home. At some point he lost control of the 1995 Saturn he was driving, and it plowed into a brick pillar. They showed the scene of the crash, and it wasn't on a "main" road or anything, it looked like a residential side street with lots of trees and everything, so it would have been quite dark on that road at night from what I could see, but they said the car had sheered off the top of the brick pillar and the car flipped over onto the roof. They said he was wearing his seat belt, and was actually trapped in the car until the emergency people arrived, and they cut him out of his seatbelt. The car and the crash scene have already been cleaned up.

He was taken to hospital and did have some cuts and scrapes from the crash, but he was talking and all that according to the report. Currently the hospital is denying he is even there, but there could already be confidentiality agreements in place.

20th July 2006 : URGENT NEWS : I am sorry to report that Haley was involved in a car accident at 1.30am today , according to CNN News . He is in hospital and is conscious, but we are still awaiting news of his condition. Please keep him in your prayers. In the meantime, if you wish to send him your best wishes and love, leave him your messages at our Forum .

14th July 2006 : We're still awaiting official updates about Home of the Giants , but in the meantime, over at IMDB , a member of the film crew who goes by the nick DaveMband43_07 has posted the following comment (minimally edited for language) about the rough cut trailer ( shown theatrically in Greensboro in February 2006 ) at the HotG IMDB message boards :

I worked on crew of HOTG in the camera Dept, and the Trailer I must say is looking pretty good. When I first started working on the movie a week into production I thought I was some "Disney" cliche movie about a basketball team, but I was wrong when we starting shooting some intense thriller scenes, theres definitely more that meets the eye. The trailer again is awesome and I cant wait till it's available to watch again. I've seen it about 3 or so times. Looks awesome.

6th July 2006 : IndyStar.com released a report on how weak tax perks could send Indiana-centric films out of state , and mentioned Home of the Giants as one of those films that Indiana lost to North Carolina . However, director Rusty Gorman , who is from Marion , Indiana , did film some exterior scenes in Marion itself , according to the report. Following that news, Amy Wisser, who was from Marion High School in 2001, sent us this email :

Hello!

If you want stories…I’ve got stories! (haha!) I just really wanted to say that I am extremely excited for the release of this film. I am proud to say I am a former Giant from the city of Marion, Indiana. The years I spent there growing up, playing ball and becoming the person I am today (yes, I’m still in the sports world!), are truly unforgettable. It is too bad more filming could not be done in Marion, but understandably, money talks. I hope this film portrays Marion and the community well as a city which lives and loves the game of basketball! And to have Haley Joel Osment featured…I am sure he will be fantastic!

Thanks to all those for all the hard work on the movie!

Take care,

Amy Wisser
Marion High School, ‘01

10th May 2006 : Our judges were unanimous in choosing SIRI to be our Grand PRIZE winner of our Home of the Giants Contest. Congratulations, Siri !

Haley has always had the ability to show a full emotion with just one expression. This is one of the many talents that makes him one of the most natural actors in the world. Now, after a long absence from the screen, and only images to go by, this one picture of him echoes that amazing talent. Pensive is the best way to describe this expression, and he just seems so relaxed and calm. You wish you knew what he was looking at and what he's thinking. This image proves that nothing about his incredible talent has changed and in some ways he seems even more mature and grown up. It's a really special picture.

3rd May 2006 : Remember Bunchy Collins ? Well, we were delighted to hear from him again, and this time , he had a great pic of Ryan Merriman ! Check out the full story and the supersized picture !

18th April 2006 : When we first started this Tribute site to Home of the Giants back in October 2005 , we had absolutely no pictures to work , only a conceptual synopsis of what the film might be about. Armed just with that little information , we used whatever current pictures we could at that time, which were the pictures from Haley's appearances at the Giffoni Festival in France , and came up with the banner for this Tribute site that we have been using all this time till now.

However, with the release of the latest batch of production stills from SymPics International, Inc , we've finally found the perfect picture to bring this site up to date . We hope you like the new banner , but this too will change as we approach the release of the film and as the artwork for the film's theatrical poster is finalised. Till then, we do hope that you will tell us what you think about this Tribute site at our message board . Why not join us there as we talk about Home of the Giants ?

10th February 2006 : Meanwhile, over at Ryan Merriman's official website this news item has been posted...

Movie Quote from Home of the Giants :

"You gotta seize the moment bro."

 

Ryan and company finished the first round of production on "Home of the Giants" in North Carolina on October 9th. The final week of production has now been pushed to sometime in March, when the cast and crew will meet up in Chicago to wrap things up. There will be a special day of production on February 22nd in North Carolina. "HOTG" has been given permission to shoot footage during an official playoff game at half time and after the game. This gives them the advantage of filming with a stadium packed with genuine screaming basketball fans. Should be a rush! Early comments from editors who have worked on the film have been wonderful. Director, Rusty Gorman, has received a great deal of support for his project and everyone involved is glad to know that they will be able to wrap up production and bring this film to completion and to a theatre near you soon. We will keep you up on the latest news as it rolls in.

Absolutely unofficially, let me say it looks excellent. I am quite impressed with the footage we have available so far.

1st December 2005 : I've just discovered and archived a very interesting report dating back to 20th September 2005 which was published in the Carolinian Online, the Independent Student Newspaper of UNC Greensboro, where Home of the Giants was filmed. It lists quite a few of the filming locations . Check out the article , Motion picture filming takes over UNCG gym . Also , according to the Insider , the North Carolina State Government News Service , Haley says that this role is perfect for him at this stage in his career. Check that story out here .

30th November 2005 12.20pm : We have received confirmation that the December 2006 release date as reported in The Northwest Observer earlier today is incorrect . Here is the latest official word regarding the release date of Home of the Giants , as of today .

"No release date yet, not even tentative. I still suggest the release will be early Summer 2006 (maybe June). We won't get a closer estimate until we get feedback from various industry areas, and we can't start that process until the movie is nearer its final version. It is too early to tell right now when those steps will occur."

The Home of the Giants Tribute Site will bring you updates with regards to the release date of Home of the Giants as soon as one is confirmed. This may not be set till the movie is nearer its final version.

30th November 2005 10am : The Greensboro All Star Cheerleaders make the news today in The Northwest Observer. The article is interesting in that a possible release date of December 2006 for the film is mentioned , although as far as we know , no date is firmed up yet. We are verifying this information for you . It's an interesting article, but too bad they spelled Haley's name incorrectly !

29th November 2005 : If you are anywhere near Walt Disney World in Florida over the next few days, be sure to try to catch Haley's appearance there at the Candlelight Processional, presented as part of the Holidays Around The World celebration from November 25 through December 30, 2005.

The show is staged each evening at 5, 6:45 and 8:15 p.m. at America Gardens Theatre. Haley is scheduled to appear at the Candlelight Processional from December 1st to 3rd .

27th November 2005 : Haley is quoted in a New York times article about child actors , and he makes a significant statement about his role in Home of the Giants in this article .

19th November 2005 : Exciting news today ! Following the archiving of the article, Rusty Gorman's Career , author OZ received an email from Rusty Gorman himself ( or his publicist ) , with the following compliments :

In the meantime, check out the TRIVIA section for some new , interesting information.

17th October 2005 : The Archived Articles section is now open, with the 6 earliest articles to do with Home of the Giants now safely archived. It is quite amazing going back and reading these really earliest articles ... there was so much speculation in the early days when the film was just a rumour , and how happy we fans were when Haley himself confirmed that he was going to shoot Home of the Giants ! We've come a long way since then !

14th October 2005 : Finally, the Home of the Giants Fansite goes fully online ! There will be many changes as we evolve and expand over the next few weeks and months, and we really hope that fans of Haley will join in the fun, especially if you have a story to share, or pictures from the sets of the film to show off.

11th October 2005 : 34 new Production Stills now available online at www.sympics.com.

10th October 2005 : Principal photography on the movie Home of The Giants completes this week in North Carolina. There may be some secondary photography in the weeks to come, but we will have to wait and see what is needed. There is no date as of yet for post production work to begin, but it can be safely said there is no chance of the film being ready for release in 2005 . As post production takes so very long, it is doubtful the release could be before May 2006 at best, and that may be a stretch. But, a 2006 release is definitely the plan. Our contact has this to say about the film , "The scenes I have seen (or have attended) have looked great. I think this will be an excellent showcase for Haley's talent, once it is released."
