Support your local geek filmmakers!

The same production groups behind JQ are making the third movie in the GAMERS series …at least, they’ll be making it if they get the money. 17 days to go and several thousand left… and if we don’t get ALL the money pledged, we don’t get ANY of the money pledged.

Watch the video, check out the crazy fan support in comments, and pitch in $10 bucks if you have it. It will go towards supporting professional Seattle artists–actors, writers, directors, production assistants, camera and sound techs, special effects, composers, costumers, caterers, and sooo many more– doing what they love and what they are good at. THANK YOU!

And if you REALLY don’t have $10 bucks, please re-post or re-share. Getting the word out is crucial, and I GUARANTEE you at least ONE of your friends is as big a nerd as we are and wants to see this movie made!

Wooden O “Twelfth Night” 2012 is no more.

It has come to an end again. Another closing, another show. And I must say that it’s been a great one. I’ve truly loved this summer’s production of “Twelfth Night” with Wooden O. It was my second ‘rodeo’ with the traveling crew, and an experience that for me was truly fulfilling.

We received a nice notice from the Seattle Times, and served up some hot, free, al fresco comedy to thousands of Seattle-area theatre-goers.

Much of what makes a production great for a performer is what the audience doesn’t get to see (or at least, outdoors, they don’t see much of it). The backstage life of an actor: I was blessed in particular, with a fantastic group of artists in the cast of “Twelfth Night”. Old friends and new. Coming to work was something to which I looked forward. Given my commute, I can say that’s an achievement of some note, and I already know that I’m going to miss this show, and this cast, desperately. The chance to clown together for fantastic audiences, take risks physically and emotionally in performance, and enjoy the outdoors during the best of our Northwest weather has been a privilege and a pleasure.
