Bang Bang... Bonnie & Clyde Style...

One of my favorite things about this crazy industry that I work in is getting to see how things ultimately end up.  Meaning, most times while you work on projects (films, television, photo shoots) you only get to see one aspect of your work.  That's what you are actually doing on set.  What is actually there and real.  There are no special effects in place, no retouches, no fonts, or logos or music or finalizing of any kind.  Instead, you have to patiently wait (sometimes years) to see how things turn out and are finalized.  What images or scenes are used?  Which ones are not?  Did they change things from the original vision or keep it exactly the same.  How does the story work?  The acting? The modeling? The directing?
As a producer I have a deep respect and interest in these things.  Many times, on projects that I produce, I also have control over a lot of this.  It's part of the job!  However, as many people who are "talent" can attest to, as an actor or model you often have little to no say in these things.  It's anyone's guess as to what the final product will be or where or how it will end up.  As talent, you do your work, and then kind of cross your fingers and hope!
I was fortunate enough to work on the promotion for Bonnie & Clyde (Appearing on A&E, Lifetime, and The History Channel two nights, starting tonight!) back in May in Baton Rouge.  I had limited but specific interaction with the entire cast, including Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger, and producers.
Many of the things we shot for promotion didn't make the cut (some of which are below with me standing in) others did, like the ad campaign you have probably seen in some form or another.  Overall, I truly had a blast working on this one and can't wait to see the film.  Check it out, tonight!

My calendar is FULL!  Very, VERY full these next couple of months... but I'm very excited to be finishing out the year on a fun and creative BANG!!  And more importantly, getting to share my stories and all new content with you!
It's a good problem to have, but looking over the calendar and trying to finalize all the dates for the various reveals, premieres, and holiday goodies I have coming ...WOW.... there is some coordination that needs to happen here.  I am carefully balancing two new films, Everything As Is (premiering this Saturday, 10/26) and Everything Twas (Premiering one month later on 11/25)!  PLUS, I have a teaser trailer for 'Twas,' some behind the scenes footage from both films, two new "AS IS" (original side stories connected to Everything As Is).  Then there is still the reveal of my Holiday card this year, plus some surprises from my previous years of Holiday cards, Paul's 12 Days of Shout Outs and lastly, and I'm announcing here, officially, for the first time, another contest that will be running the beginning of December!!
Stay tuned on that one!!

And now to kick off all the new stuff coming.... Check out my recently uploaded interview to the EVERYTHING AS IS CHANNEL on YouTube.

I was almost a Supermarket Superstar....

OK, well not really, but I did do some promo work for Lifetime's new summer show, Supermarket Superstar!   Unfortunately, I was recently informed that I only ultimately made it to the cutting room floor and not an actual promo (I was also told however, that my footage was really good, they just "went in a different direction" for the ads.  So that's good...right?!).  It is the nature of this beast, called Entertainment.
But that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the show, premiering tonight on Lifetime and hosted by Stacy Keibler (or see some photos from my "didn't make the cut" promo).

Find out more info on the show, including local times HERE

Let Freedom Ring. Always.

The 4th of July.
An amazing day, and not just because of the barbequing and fireworks (although that's great too). The 4th of July celebrates the birth of our great nation and ultimately the way of life that many of us live everyday, and unfortunately, that many of us take for granted.
Freedom and Liberty are words thrown around a lot, sometimes so much that they can lose their meanings. But these words are so important to our country's history, and to all of humanity's future. Think about that word for just a second, Freedom. Any amazing gift that should have come guaranteed, but, as history and our present show, did not and does not. America can be flawed, but it's belief in freedom is real and inspirational and continues to influence.
But the reason I love America the most, is her ability to inspire dreams and hope in all people. In the very fiber of our nation (and it's birth) we believed in something greater. That all people are equal, that all people should be free, and that all people can pursue what brings them happiness.
An ideal, yes, of course, but also a very real goal that we continue to strive towards.
We aren't perfect, but I love that we keep working to be! The way we dream. The way we hope. It raises all of us to new heights!

HAPPY 4th of JULY!! Let Freedom ring....always...and for all people!
