“All Sorts” of Filmmaking Fun!

AS_CoffeeDrinkingImage_4K_v03_RC“Through a secret door behind the office vending machine, a lonely data entry clerk named Diego finds the magical world of championship folder filing.  As he coaches his talented coworker June in the competition, the two begin to fall in love…but do they really have a shot, or are they just fooling themselves?”

This is the quirky world of All Sorts!  All Sorts is an Independent Feature Film that I somehow had the privilege to be a part of!  Filming for three weeks in my hometown of Yakima, Washington, I spent 18 days immersed in the art, the magic and the family of filmmaking.  (Read More…)

A few months ago I had the privilege of Co-Chairing a fan event celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the television series La Femme Nikita.  For this event, the Chairs were fortunate to be able to bring in a number of talented people for panel discussions.  Their work ran the gamut of what it takes to bring a television show to fruition.  One of these folks was Saul Pincus. Saul worked as Assistant Editor on La Femme Nikita for 33 episodes.

Having opportunity to meet Saul in person and find out more about his background as a television editor, I also discovered his very diversified work in Feature Film.  His recent film, Nocturne, which Saul co-wrote and directed, has played to a variety of film festivals and won multiple awards!

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…

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

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
