Umm so yeah, not the most prolific blogger. If I vow to keep them short and sweet, I think I'll post more.
Mostly, I have been sewing for dollars:) Prototypes, custom gear and product for upcoming shows I'm selling at. I picked up two indy films, so no money there, but name in the credits and creative control. I think it's a good start, fair trade. Both crews are very accomplished, passionate and have follow through. Who doesn't like working with pros?!
One of the flicks is about a DJ chick turned diva star. It will be feature length and feature lot's of Wound. Yay! It's a little campy, which has got to be one of my fave genres. I'm looking forward to this as I look back with nostalgia to the raver days/daze. The other film is a war story with some pathos and cgi. It takes place in an alternate reality of the 20's so I took mesarurements up to the navel in case we pull those pants up. Also, love military styling. I will have fun amping up the stock surplus and may make a few custom pieces.
Not sure if the movies are my racket but I think I'll enjoy what I can, see where it takes me. I look at it like sleep away camp, which was a great experience for me. A bunch of different types thrown into a living situation of almost constant contact with a few weeks of serious bonding and then you scatter back to your previous existence.
Here's a short featuring two of the principles, the writer/director/main babe of The Syriana Tate Interview, Mare Costello and sidekick, Ric Rosario....
