Starship Trooper Casper Van Dien in Sanborn Studios' 'Miami 24/7'

The Sarasota County Film and Entertainment Office throws monthly mixers.

The events usually draw 85-100 working/aspiring movie makers, actors, crew, enthusiasts, etc.

On Monday, a capacity crowd capped at 240 hit up the Holiday Inn Lakewood Ranch for the SCFEO October Film Mixer and Production Community Reception.

"Do you want to know more about Sanborn Studios and soundstages?"

That was the big draw.

The Herald has written about Sanborn Studios here and here and here.

The Monday meeting featuring honcho Ken Sanborn and president of Sanborn Studios LLC Karinne Behr mostly rehashed stuff from previous talks detailed in the articles linked to above.

Except for one revelation:

Sanborn Studios' in-production TV show about competing news helicopters features Casper Van Dien (pictured), of "Starship Troopers" fame.

Not exactly a "name" to thrill potential network buyers but at least he's talent worth Googling. And worthy of a well-meaning PSA.
