Lot's of Work and Updates

Well, it's been a productive couple of weeks. I have a few updates and a couple of new jobs to tell you about.

I answered a posting a little over a week ago from a producer looking for an AD. We met up and I signed on as AD. I've already been busy breaking down the script and putting together a preliminary schedule. The movie is called In Pursuit of the Pomegranate. It's an ethereal story with some funky visuals and a few gnarly stunts. I met with the director on Monday and we hit off pretty well. Principal photography will start in mid-September. I'm looking forward to continuing to get deep into this script.

Along with Pomegranate the producer is in pre-production on a horror feature. I will also be working on this movie. This Thursday I will be assisting with the casting call at the Clinton St Theater. We haven't defined my role yet but I'm looking forward to working on this one, too.

I just received a call this afternoon for another job. I've been an assistant for a bunch of reality show casting calls. Many of them have been for Bunim-Murray. One of the shows that I've assisted on is MTV's The Real World. The casting producer from that show will be up here for this one and asked the coordinator to call me. Last time I worked with this producer he told me that I should be in LA working and now he's requested me to be the first call for this casting. That really makes me feel good to know that I've made such a good impression. This should be a really fun casting. It's for a show a called The Bad Girls Club. Basically, it's like a Mean Girls all living in the same house.

I love it when I have a lot of stuff to report!

POW Fest Panel today

I've been so busy with the music video that I forgot to post about the POW Fest panel that I was asked to be a part of. It was the Below The Line panel. I was one of four women who work as freelancers asked to participate. I was very honored. The audience was very small though so there weren't a lot of questions. But I felt like it's a good panel to have at the POW Fest. As the festival grows so will the audience.

The Power Of Prayer

Equipment, talent, crew, camera, location, set, mannequins...It all came together.

The mannequins; we did not think we were going to get enough to fill the set but with one call we got about 40 full mannequins for free. THANK YOU AARON AT NORDSTROM!

Crew; I still needed a dolly grip but as of 9:56pm I have an excellent dolly grip for tomorrow. THANK YOU, JIM DUNN!

Just take a look at the set we put together. I built the 12'x12' plastic screen. Andrew hung the rest of the plastic and we dressed in the mannequins together. I think it looks awesome.

What the Hell?

Okay, so everything for our music video has come together. Location, set dec, crew, equipment...but our camera has fallen through. All we need is an HVX camera for one day. However, with no money in the budget for a full rental it's going to be next to impossible to get what we need. I don't have any favors to call in from any of the rental houses so it's gonna be a miracle if we can get one.

Interview Went Well

My interview yesterday went very well. It looks like I will be on this shoot. I'll get more details after I talk with the production manager. Production will take place in August so that leaves me open for work between now and then.

We Found Our Location!

BIG THANKS TO THE GUYS AT PG & L! They will be providing us with a location and equipment for an extremely reasonable deal. Everything is falling into place.

More Work

I got a call today and I'll be working on a reality show next Wednesday. I don't have any details about it, yet. I'll post it as soon as I find out more.

Yay work!

Music Video

And mannequins! Our music video shoot has been pushed to May 15. Location and mannequins were not coming together quick enough but it looks like it's working out better for everyone.

We're really excited about the video. We're doing this because we want more videos for our reel and we really like the singer. The best part is she's going to use the heck out of this video. So...major exposure!

Everything should be locked down by Monday then we can kinda relax.

Interview For Another Project

I talked to a Producer/Director today about working on his feature to be shot this summer. I'll be meeting up with him later this week for a proper interview. Wish me luck!

No More Zombies!


Anyway...I'm done with shooting for The Outbreak.
