CREWING, CUTTING and CONGO BONGO
The beautiful full moon has passed us and the days have been a mix of warm and chill as the fall fights to take over from summer. We were stopped in our semi final soccer match but had a great season and what fun and weekly exercise. The garden has allowed us to make some eggplant dishes and wonderful accents to each meal with beans, peppers and tomatoes. The beer making is done and now it ages a touch but I think I may have to have a couple of those this weekend. Next week I will also start my slow packing for my upcoming filming. I’m co-starring with Melissa Anschutz who was great to work across on “7 Stones” and I look forward to working with some new cast mates as well.
As mentioned above the crewing of “Bestseller” will continue and I look forward to working with these talented artists. It is my favorite time of year to film. The cold and haunting night will bring such a vibe to the film. For fans of this genre you can whet your thirst with the TRIPLE THREAT of films “Deadly Renovations,” “Darkest Night,” and “Locked in a Room”. Two of these films are delivering masters to Germany for play there, in Austria and Switzerland. “Deadly Renovations” is also starting its Scandinavia run so please do check it out. I’m very happy to have a new distribution partner for these territories.
I’ve been working on the final touches for the first (3) TV shows of “Supermodel Showdown, Costa Rican Adventure”. It really is entertaining and informative for anyone with interest in modeling, photography and/or the making of a reality show. This TV show gives a look on both sides of the camera. These three shows will be used to set up the deal for the entire series. I hope everyone enjoys this unique endeavor and if the right deal is made audiences will get to go immerse themselves in the jungle of Costa Rica at Congo Bongo. (Look it up:)
“ASHES OF EDEN” is really coming to life with some sound design and music. Talks on outside music are moving a tad slower than I would like but welcome to the entertainment business. The trailer has been making its way to the eyes of a few possible distribution partners. The response has been very good but the best part is that our film is very strong. It is not like some where the trailer has the only good couple parts. We didn’t even scratch the surface.
I had some great new distribution talks this week and also some development meetings. This is all step-by-step work but by working hard you will realize in time how much you have actually put in place. I am supposed to take part in a test shoot in New Mexico on a western. They’ve approached me about playing the lead. I’m excited because it would/could reunite me with an actor from my past that I LOVED working with. Also development on that TV series I agreed to participate in also had meetings this week.
So today will be time spent with the family and pack up North. We will likely be watching MSU take on the Fighting Irish. I’m enjoying the days in between all this film work and feel blessed in many ways. I hope each of you continue to use your creativity and be good to one another. Have a great weekend and a productive week ahead.
