Welcome To The Jungle

        We're getting into the last week of prep, and I think I'm officially going gray. Pieces are falling into place, or I'm making them fit into place. Nearly all the crew is crewed, I'm hopefully going to be locking a location soon, and I'm spending every extra moment I have making miniature fairies. I smell like clay. But it's coming together, and I believe my nervousness is competing with excitement.

        The lack of money really does make a difference, it's amazing how quickly it's getting spent. I have so many things earmarked as necessary, and they definitely are. Must have drives, must have food, must have costumes! But, on the flip side so many awesome, AWESOME people are donating their time and equipment. I really am thankful to everyone who has stepped up and donated what they can. I'm astonished and blown away by this generosity. Whenever I think about what I need, with what little I have, I remind myself of all these fantastic people who have given so much, so far. I've got some pretty remarkable people in my life.

       Anyway, last week. I've got so much on my mind I'm not sure what to say. If you still want to donate - please feel free to do so by clicking the donation button on the top. I will try to keep up with the posts. Thanks again, everyone, I'm so glad there are people like you out there in the world!!

What is THIS? (Almost top right)

        This, my dear readers, is a donation button. This is specifically for lovely generous people who were either unable to contribute at the time the IndieGoGo campaign was going on, or missed all the posts about it.  The campaign is sadly over, but I have set up a paypal account for anyone wanting to still give to this wonderful short film!

       Not sure what to do with that federal tax refund? The excess winnings from the Powerball lottery? The sudden windfall of cash from that odd wealthy stranger that left you everything in his will? I have an idea! Donate it, baby! I'm still in need of moolah for The Collector. I've said this before, it's getting made, no matter what, but having money would really REALLY help.

       Right now we're in the midst of pre-pro. Staffing, gearing, finding props, my costume designer has come up with new concepts. Look!

Pretty freakin' awesome! The next thing on the big agenda is finding props. Please don't make me go dumpster diving to find things.... Because I will.

      Anyway, the long and short of it is - you can still contribute if you want to! Click on that little button and give what you are comfortable with and I will appreciate and love you forever (as friends, or course - let's not get crazy). Thank you for your time, your donation, and your awesome support!!

My Actors

I want to do an official 'announcement' on my blog (because that makes it official) of my main actors.
I can't tell you the parts they play, that would give away too much of the story.

But here they are:

Philip Lester. I've worked with Phil on a few projects, he's a wonderful actor and an awesome friend! If he looks familiar it's probably because you've seen him in "Where The Truth Lies" "24" and "CSI: Miami" 

Tim Trobec. Tim has been in many of my crazy shorts, along with Phil in "Undercover 5-0 Heat" I'm sure you've seen Tim in either "The Riches" "Criminal Minds" "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" or one of his many commercial appearances.

Heather Moody. Heather was in one of the very first music videos I directed (actually co-directed with Padraic Culham). She is a talented actress and dancer and a member of the L.A. dance troupe The Satin Dollz.  

Thanks guys, for lending me your talents again and helping me with The Collector!
