I’m packed up and ready to go to Las Vegas for the NAB Show – specifically interested in Post Production World, M.E.T 360 Studio and some key meetings for projects in development with Lions Rest.
Shoes are my favorite pass time and packing is always unique for me – I like to have a shoe for any occasion, and in multiple colors!
I have also been encouraged to drink less pop, eat less fried cheese and in general, be more mindful of healthy choices. So this trip, the Nathan’s hot dog stand and Sbarro pizza will not get my lunch! I have packed my own perfectly portioned clean eating meals, ready to nom nom on a moments notice! The goal is no junk food this trip!
I will be doing a Facebook Live session on Wednesday April 26th about 2:30 pm MST with the details of the trip.
Cross your eyes and kiss your elbows for a great trip!
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:

It’s a steampunk inspired western action film about a young woman with big dreams living in a small desert town. She is surviving the expectations and limitations of it while having to pay for something she didn’t do till she finds the courage to set things right.
Jael is played by Stephanie Dostal, with her sister Leah played by Jessica Kinni and their mother Naomi played by Stacie Stocker.

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.
Now, we are looking for the right production partner and distribution deal to see Jael go around the world!
