rough cut screening

Just had a great rough cut screening of Ninja James and the Beast Boy. Chadwick our editor is doing a fantastic job putting it together and I'm very excited to see how it's turning out. All but one of our screeners were non film people and their comments and insight were exceptional!!!

btw: for those of you surprised by my photo, I've darkened my hair (trying for those serious parts now!) and got bangs! Yes, BANGS!!
No I'm not talking about the cow.

TXMPA LOBBY DAY on the grounds of the capital w/a mechanical cow from the HBO film Temple Grandin. The cow looked awesome (and moved like a real cow!) curtesy of awesome FX guys, Everett and Craig Byrom, JW McCormick and Bob Trevino.

loove, loove loove!!

So here's the scoop. I love acting. I'm lucky, in that I occasionally get paid for it, but I love it so much, I'll even do it for free. (O.K. as long as it's an awesome director). Plain and simply put, I love it. I also love being a mom. Loove, loove, loove it!! and I'm totally over the moon with my kids. I believe kids are the essence of life and that their energy is what makes the world go around.
But it's not always peaches and cream. To be a working actor, you have to keep growing artistically, take challenges, push your comfort zone and be open to possibilities. To be a fairly decent parent, you have to keep two steps ahead of the little buggers, think outside the lines, be the "adult" when you really want to be the one to throw the tantrum, and be open to ideas that aren't very efficient. :)
It does seem that I'm whining about the struggle between two awesome jobs, about two things in my life that I love and give me great joys. But I wouldn't mind being able to do both of them really well at the same time!
