Geoffrey Breton – Chain Reaction

One thing I have found from featuring amazing people and projects in At a Glance is that they are always surrounded by other amazing people and projects.  I have been fortunate at times to be able to chain reaction, if you will, talent into multiple connected Features.  These connections provide an expanded view of previous Features and opens up conversations in other directions as well.

Previously I published a Feature on musician Chris Hyson, and then followed with a Feature update announcing the filming of a music video being produced for one of Chris’ compositions.  In the update it was noted that along with actor Alexander Vlahos, the video would be directed by Geoffrey Breton.  From my research, it was evident that Geoffrey is a major up and comer in the film industry, working as Associate Director at Wolfheart Productions, who just happens to be producers of Chris‘s music video.  I jumped at the chance to be able to find out more about Geoffreys work, so after contacting him to see if he would be willing to chat with us, he luckily managed to clear a little time away and gives us a glimpse into his world.  Read More

In the Tub with TJ Scott

TJ Scott first turned up on my radar in 1997 when he directed one of my favorite episodes on the original La Femme NikitaTV series.  TJ had quickly become a familiar director in locations around the world, and it came as no surprise whenever I would see his credits pop up on my TV.  A number of years later I was fortunate to meet TJ and his lovely wife, Victoria Pratt, at a celebrity charity auction event in LA.  He was gracious, funny and as talented as I had imagined.  Since then, TJ has gone on to expand his career in various aspects of the industry.  Still keeping up with his work, when I heard he was creating a photographic coffee table book, In the Tub, I knew this was the perfect feature for At a Glance.  Read More

As we’ve established before in related blogsEoin Macken doesn’t do stuff the way other people do.  You might know him as the dashing, yet ever courageous Sir Gwaine in the BBC show Merlin, or maybe you’ve seen his movies on Youtube, but no matter where you’ve discovered him, if you’ve seen him, you remember him.  This blog is not going to be about how much respect and fangirl feelings I have for this man. This blog is going to be about his latest movie, Cold and the convention style screening he offered the fans.

A few months ago, Eoin started a crowdfunding campaign in order to finish his project, a movie starring his Merlin costar Tom Hopper.  If you are not familiar with the crowdfunding concept, it is the collective effort of individuals who network and pool their money, usually via the Internet, to support efforts initiated by other people or organizations (per Wikipedia).  In short, Eoin asked us, fans, to help him fund his movie.  The response exceeded the expectations and almost 300 people gave money to help make this movie.  Read More
