Eoin Macken – Chats Cold

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

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

Kind of…

My Tumblr is laden with Merlin things as the series finally reaches it’s end on Christmas Eve.  I am heartbroken and excited at the same time, for multiple reasons.  I don’t want the series to end, yet I know it should..it must.  Yet I can’t wait for the end to get here because these last episodes have been so good, it’s amazing to watch.  At the same time, I don’t want it to end not just because I will miss it, but because of the fear I have..will I be unhappy with the way it ends?  Will I be satisfied but sad because of where they take the characters and it ruins me on an emotional level?  Will I be happy all the way around, or will I totally hate it…   Read More…
