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...

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

Striking Gold with Will Bowes

Will Bowes - Bowes_Will2 IMDB

Doing interviews for this blog has been an interesting experience for me.  Sometimes I set out very purposefully to “snag” a specific someone to interview…and sometimes I just happen to stumble upon someone and amazing things happen.  The later was the case with Will Bowes.  I first became aware of Will due to my avid addiction to BBC America’s Copper.  Will’s character, Phinbar Byrnes, or more affectionately nicknamed Little Byrnes, adds a sort of naivety mixed with humor to the often times dark story line, which in turn has endeared him to the audience.  Running across him by chance on Twitter (where I have been able to network the majority of my interviews!) and exchanging niceties about his recent episode, it rather randomly occurred to me to approach him about a Q and A.  To my delight he agreed to take me on and what has resulted is an interesting interview with a guy who is so much more than I had any knowledge of at the onset.  I found a gold mine and am now here to share the claim with all of you!  Read More

There are places I remember..all my life, though some have changed. The melodic sounds of the Lennon/McCartney penned In My Life was the opening theme to one of my favorite long running NBC Network television series titled Providence.  The show centered on a young plastic surgeon named Dr. Sydney Hansen, played by Melina Kanakaredes, and the misadventures of her family members.  Younger brother, Robbie, was a likable gent who in spite of his kind heart, usually ended up in some type of unseemly financial situation.  The relationship between Sydney and Robbie was heartwarming, frustrating and touching.  Providence’s Robbie was my first introduction to the wonderfully talented actor, Seth Peterson.  Read More
