I Have my Life Back!

Movie wrapped Saturday, or should I say, Sunday morning 🙂  I was really sad to drive away from the set, knowing that I’d never be going back, but at the same time, I was eager to go home and have time to vacuum and stuff, because there are dog/cat hair tumbleweeds the size of my fist floating down the hallway.

I guess I can say the name of the project now that it’s done.  It’s “Prairie Fever” and it stars Kevin Sorbo (yummolicious) and I believe it will be on the Hallmark Channel, not sure of the timing.  It’s a western, and between getting cow patties on my dress and sweating in a 110 degree heat a lot, it was a dream come true 🙂  I will definitely plug more for the show when it gets closer to airing.  I haven’t worked with such wonderful actors since being in “Warm Springs”.    It was really inspiring to me, because when I work with actors who are so gifted, it makes me want to go work on my craft, so I can be as facile as they are.   But I also I can’t wait to go back to comedy improv class from doing all this drama and pretend to fart on someone in a scene.

I am implementing some of those juicy lifehacker/zen habits lists to get the piles of undone tasks done because it’s pretty overwhelming.  Number ONE is planning on getting the new episodes of The Guild shot.  We have cast members/crew still working on other stuff for a bit so juggling schedules will be “fun”, but my task is to get the shoot planned ASAP and get the turnover time shortened so that we can have an episode out by late October.   Frustrating that there’s that long a lag, but when you’re working 14 hour days 6 days a week, not much can happen with planning, especially when you don’t have cell service or email.  Utter torture.  Also, we ARE in talks with getting money to do a bunch of episodes at a time, which is fantastic, but it’s not reality until the paper is in front of you, as they say. 🙂

As far as everything else, my “prioritized list” is as long as my arm.  I think 43 folders has a nice video on “inbox zero” that my brother has been preaching to me that I’ll be checking out.   I need the help.   I literally have 200 emails to return.   And at least 15 messages from my Mother, telling me what she bought at Target last night from the last two weeks, and how her dog is doing.  She likes to share stuff with my answering machine, LOL.

    Prairie Fever eh. Google Fu shows it’s a Halmi production for ION (the former PAX) rather than Hallmark, although the Halmis have certainly done enough shows for Hallmark.

    Hmm, the first online pictures I found were Sorbo posing with stuntwoman Caryn Mower (apparently an acting credit rather than a stunt credit). He’s got a tin star, so presumably playing a lawman of some kind.

    So (rolling out the cliches) are you playing the ‘new schoolma’rm’, the ‘feisty rancher’s daughter’, the ‘widow with true grit’, the whore/dancehall girl with a heart of gold’, the ‘mail-order bride’ … 🙂

  • Oh yes, it is for ION! I worked for the producers on another Hallmark Channel movie, Mystery Woman.

  • Samantha

    I’m glad you’re done and have time to relax… after you catch up on all the stuff you missed, lol. I’m sure you were great!

  • Paul

    Tell us more about your role in the Western! Inquiring minds want to know. 🙂

  • Joe

    Ah, Kevin Sorbo’s awesome. I met him a few months ago at our company fundraiser. He’s a very kind, generous guy. He’s from my neck of the woods (Minnesota) and showed up because he wanted to support our foundation. Kickass.

    Oh, and congrats on the wrap!

    Also if, you’re into FPS games at all, you should give Team Fortress 2 a try (http://orange.half-life2.com/tf2.html). I’m normally not into FPS games, but this is a fantastic multiplaying shoot-em-up, and it’s only in beta. I couldn’t stop playing.

  • Edgar

    Looks like someone has more time on their hands for some web development too…

    At least that’s what that Twit msg said last night 😉

  • Hmm I might try a FPS for once. They used to make me sick to my stomach.

    And yes, I need to get going on the forums button! grr, thanks Edgar for cracking the whip 🙂

  • Courtney

    Team Fortress 2 is awesome. I have quite possibly the weakest stomach ever (Duke Nukem and Quake made me queasy for hours) but I was fine playing Team Fortress Classic and later Counter-strike.

    Team Fortress is much more forgiving than CS. Certain classes are very easy to play (but harder to master). Demoman and Engineer can stay out of the head to head fights while still racking up the kills.

    Check out my thread on the games forums for the trailers. Those were really well done. Nowhere near as social as a MMO, but good for fast, quick, kill-em-all fun.

    Admit it. It’s a Hercules vs. Felicia the Ninja Warrior Princess in a 1 vs 1 90 minute duel to the death. Only one comes out alive. Don’t miss it.
