Happy One Year Anniversary!

anniversary-cupcake

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since I published the first Feature for At a Glance.  After leaving my full-time job, I really wanted to find a way to be personally creative.  I needed to find something I could do that was fulfilling, but on my own schedule.  Suffering with what some would refer to as an invisible disease; I have days where I am not up to doing anything productive, which as you can imagine, can be an issue at times.  So finding something I enjoyed doing without the pressure of always having to be on a set schedule sounded like the perfect project.  Read More

Eoin Macken’s name may not be familiar to you, but his face could be.  Hailing from Dublin, Ireland, Eoin was selected at the ripe age of 19 as the Face of Abercrombie & Fitcha well-known American clothing retailer.  Eoin modeled successfully for A&F as well as other high end bookings before moving on to become a talented actor, writer, producer, director, and cinematographer.

I first learned of Eoin’s talents on the BBC Series Merlin where he brought to life King Arthur’s lovable knight, Sir Gwaine.  It was on the set of Merlin where Eoin met his good friend Tom Hopper.  Their friendship led them down a road of creativity from which an Independent Feature Film was created entitled Cold.  Read More…

Aaron Poole is one of those actors who wouldn’t surprise you to see turn up in just about any genre of film or television.  He has that natural ability to get lost in the character and portray types vastly apart from each other.  Although you may not be quite familiar with his name, there’s a good chance that you will actually recognize Aaron  from his extensive body of acting.  Having just wrapped a Feature Film alongside Kiefer and Donald SutherlandAaron has also worked in productions with Richard DreyfussOrphan Black’s darling Tatiana MaslanyVanessa RedgraveJulian Richings, and  Samuel L. Jackson to name just a few.  Read More...

Chooka Parker – A Jewel From Down Under

You know how it is when you hear a saying or a catch phrase.  The next thing you know, you are using it and melding it into your own vocabulary.  Having lovely Twitter friends who are Australian and theatrically inclined, I picked up the phrase Chookas from them.  The Urban Dictionary defines Chookas as Theatrical slang used mainly in Australia to wish performer good luck. Synonymous to:  break a leg.  One day after using the phrase on Twitter, a friend asked me what it meant.  Soon after my reply I received a tweet that simply said It’s also my name!  This was my personal introduction to an amazing young man named Chooka Parker.  Read More…

Drew Bauml – All in the Family

While looking for inspiration for Features in At a Glance, I realized that sometimes I need to look no further than my own family.  One of the good things about Facebook is that it gives us a link with some of our family members, particularly those who do not live close by, that maybe we wouldn’t have had before.  So, when I began to see recent posts and photos of my cousin’s son and realized just how musically talented he had become, I knew just who I wanted to interview as one of my Features on Introductions to New and Promising Talent…something I had in mind to focus on when creating this blog.

Drew Bauml is 18 years old and just starting his Senior Year at MacArthur High School in San Antonio, Texas.  With a penchant for funky socks, bow ties, and a first place win of his high school’s talent contest, Mac Idol, people are beginning to take note of Drew’s talent and his charming quirkiness.  Read More

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
