It’s been busy around here where all things Jael: A Western Tale are concerned!

We are traveling from our desert home in Arizona to the sandy beaches of Santa Monica for the AFM, or American Film Market.

The script, cast and crew are in place with locations scouted and looking just the part for a steampunk inspired western.

Kim Huenecke's Commercial Headshot Small 1

1) What got you started in acting? When I turned 35 I said “screw this, I want to study acting.” I was a member of a professional women’s organization at the time and one of the members was an actor. I talked to her about how to get started in acting. She gave me Ramona Richards name and that was it.
2) Where do you find the inspiration/motivation for a character? In the words of the script. I also like to do a life history of the character.
3) Are there any films (past or present) that you would like to be a part of?
Gone With the Wind, Double Indemnity, and  Despicable Me.
4) Who is your ultimate dream character to play?
Phyllis Dietrichson from Double Indemnity
5) Where do you see yourself in your acting career five years from now?
I see myself winning some awards for my acting. I think working on a TV series would be interesting.

Where do I get my steampunk western inspiration?

I get so much of my steampunk western inspiration from Pinterest and Etsy. Or maybe a bit of H.R. Giger.

Oh the talent of the craftsmen!


I love this train and it sparks my ideas for how to dress the train at Old Tucson studios!
