2017: Hello AT&T Developer Summit Film Festival & more

Hello JAWT family,

The new year began with a bang as I traveled to the AT&T Developer Summit for a wee film festival as the new AT&T entertainment division flexes it’s fledgling muscles.

From what I saw, they did great. The submissions were of great production quality and story. Most importantly, in the wee 10 minute time span of the short films that were entered, emotion was felt and the story was driven. Some of those stories I would like to have seen more!

Here’s me with the professional film maker category directors, from left to right:

Me,director Caleb Herman of Dispatch who won the AT&T Developer Summit Film Festival with his entry based on a true story, director Iqbal Ahmed of Bug Man and director Lexi Hiland of Para Mi Mama

If you are looking to hire talent ready to work, take a look at these directors!

JAWT update:

The mobile app is in development and I’m looking for some help with it because my coding skills are not getting the look and feel, that I want.

The graphic novel is ready to move forward and I am looking for artist and color artist to bring on for development.

It’s busy around here!

Stay tuned to our Facebook page because it is updated daily.

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.

Poster art is ready & interview with artist Saphyre Fish

Hello JAWT family,

The poster artwork is ready and we are steaming ahead with plans for our Fall production.

The artwork is created by Saphyre Fish who is part artist/part actress and part production assistant on the Jael: A Western Tale set!

JAWT_JaelAWesternTale_posterart_SaphyreFish

This is her poster art featuring 3 of our actresses playing Jael by Stephanie Dostal, Naomi by Stacie Stocker and Leah by Jessica Kinni.

Now, for a few questions with Saphyre Fish.

1) What got you started in art work and drawing?
I’ve been drawing since I was a child, it’s just something that’s always stuck with me. At first, my vent was subconsciously karate when I lived in Washington even though I still drew at the time, just not as much. However, when me and my mother moved to Arizona it was too expensive for us; I got bullied quite a bit at school and it didn’t take long for me to take drawing as a way of taking out my frustrations. I knew better than to start fights, and it didn’t really help stop the harassment but did help keep me level headed. Over time it helped me in other ways like learning.
2) What inspires you?
Mostly music, it helps me get the feeling right in whatever I’m drawing and to keep going when I want to stop. But at the same time I like to draw things that are funny, or new ideas, which can come from anything (recently it’s from the new video game that came out). Sometimes I’d look at a normal, everyday object, and laugh to myself because it’d remind me of something stupid I thought up in the past about it. I guess I just like making people laugh and smile.

3) If you could meet any artist (alive or dead) who would it be and why?
I’m going to be honest here, I don’t really know too much about other artists of any kind. Not out of ignorance, I just don’t really care. I might just be odd but I think it’s a little weird to fawn over people, sometimes it makes me really uncomfortable because those people have their own lives and whatnot, I want to respect their privacy as people. As for appreciation for their works, I just keep it at a distance but if they were there, I’d let them know.

4) Where do you from here-what’s next for you artistically?
Going to be honest again; I have no idea. Mostly I just go with the flow, challenge myself from time to time. Been thinking of taking up animation or 3D modeling on top of what I’m doing now.

Thank you Saphyre! See you on set soon!
