May update for Jael A Western Tale – Introducing BEARLY Film

Hi ya JAWT fam,

Thanks for visiting the Jael A Western Tale website – things are moving forward, slowly but surely in the production process of the film including designing a moving platform to make the train look like it’s moving when actually it’s not, it’s the platform. That lets the integrity of the antique train stay intact and the cost of production stay in budget!

And in other news, Makeup University featured eye glasses for a review so that the beautiful Miss Baylee Ginther can have a spare pair just in case mayhem breaks out on set.

 

Now the fun part of steampunking these glasses into girly goggles begins!

Thank you for your continued support of Jael A Western Tale! The Facebook page receives daily posts – so please like our page and visit us there!

Finally, Lions Rest who is producing Jael A Western Tale has a new short in production that will be in theaters this summer! Full details and daily updates on the Facebook page here:  http://facebook.com/BEARLYfilm

This psychological thriller features a JAWT family actress, the gorgeous Miss Gia Gerardo who plays Myles in Jael A Western Tale is playing Luz Ackerman in BEARLY.

That’s the news for now. I hope this finds everyone getting ready for the best summer ever!

 

How to NAB Show the Jael A Western Tale Way

Hey all,

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!

Oh the talent of the craftsmen!
