An early Father’s Day present from my kids.
Got me down to a tea.
This is a teaser trailer for a forthcoming short film made by a talented friend of mine by the name of Catherine Stepien. Having worked in film for a while, mainly within wardrobe and production design, Soul Mother is very much her project. Being her debut directorial outing, she also wrote the script, created the effects, designed the production and dealt with make up and wardrobe.
My old school mate is nothing if not versatile!
Please check it out. Turn your volume up.
On the same day that I saw the first trailer for the new Star Wars movie, due out in December, I saw this great tribute to the late Carrie Fisher. It shows just what a funny and feisty woman she was.
Thought I’d share it with you guys.
I woke this morning to the news that Debbie Reynolds had died, just one day after Carrie Fisher. The strain must have been just too much for the aged star. “She’s now with Carrie and we’re all heartbroken,” said her son, Todd Fisher. “She said, ‘I want to be with Carrie’, and then she was gone.”
Debbie wanting to be with her daughter is a nice thought, but what a time their family must be going through. On hearing the news, the lyrics of Ja Rule came to mind:
If pain is truly love,
for my family I die.
R.I.P both mother&daughter.
I really hoped she’d pull through. It was not to be. 😦
I was singing along to Christmas songs. Walking In The Air came on: ended up with a neck like Deirdre Barlow.*
*for non-English readers, Deirdre Barlow was a character in a soap opera, whose straining neck chords were much commented on during emotional scenes.
