Happy Place

Now that we've wrapped the movie and are knee-deep into post-production, I'm finding myself with a lot of free time. It feels like college, right after finals, when you come home and don't really know what to do with your hands. It's fantastic, don't get me wrong, but as a person who prides herself on always moving, always working, always going... it's absurdly frustrating. I can only organize the kitchen, storage shed and costume closet so many times before I get all Stepford-y and wanna' eat a pound of chocolate in the dark.

So to beat my frustrations, between auditions, I walk sometimes and do yoga sometimes and pour a glass of wine at 4:00 most times. I'm trying to see this time as a mini vacation for the unwilling. A time where I am free to find inspiration for what's next. One thing that has been exciting me lately has been trolling through my photo cache. I've been rediscovering all these fertile memories and images of all kinds of happy places. I thought I'd share some of my fall favorites, maybe you need a happy place too...

Is it 4:00 yet?

Almost Done

We've got one more weekend left to finish our movie "Missed Connections." We had a whirlwind three day weekend with 12 hour days and crazy public shoots, but for the most part, it all went smoothly. I keep finding myself sitting back and taking stock of what good fortune we've had. Our crew is simply amazing and our cast, has brought more to the script than we could have imagined.

We've got a sweet new website and you can follow all of our progress on twitter. If you'd like to see the movie or attend the wrap party visit us here at our new fundraising page.

Thanks for all the love!

My New Hero

I came across Gotye's music today. I love finding new music and thought I'd share. I bought his album and listened to is 5 times in a row. He's just wonderful and his process is inspiring here's a little docu-video...

Enjoy the music...
