January 2010 – Sundance Film Festival- Utah


            “Back to Reality” is what I always told my daughter –

               after working in Show Business – and it’s a family

             quote –  I loved attending “Sundance Film Festival”

               in Utah – we stayed at the Sundance Resort – Now

             it’s “Back to Reality”  I was still on my computer and

                cell phone – during activities at Sundance – for

              all of your interviews and bookings.  Thanks to

                Terri in the Fresno Office and Suzanne in the Hollywood

               Office for your “backup” 

              I attended numerous Screenings – met dozens of Directors & 

            Producers and had  meetings to Cast up-coming films all over

              the U.S. and spreading the word about how easy

              it is to film here in the Central Valley.

                    I told so many filmmakers about Casting

                 “Finding Hope Now”  and “Stricken”  filmed

                  here in the Central Valley.

                So many film highlights – I enjoyed meeting

                 America Ferrera ( Ugly Betty) who Stars and

                 Produced “The Dry Land” she is a pretty girl-

                  and so smart – and down to earth – we also

                   met Ryan O’Nam & Jason Ritter ( John’s son)

                  who star in the Film –

                   I was also very impressed with Director/Actor

                    Mark Ruffalo – and he studied Acting with

                   Stella Adler in Hollywood as I did – wow

                   what a great guy he is – It took them ten

                    years of planning to shoot “Sympathy for

                     Delicious” – I was hoping to say hello to

                     Juliette Lewis – one of the stars – she was

                      not at the screening the evening I went.

                      I met her years ago when I went to Visit

                       Brad Pitt on the set of “California” and

                       her teriffic mom.

                      I could write about Sundance for a week –

                       Thanks to my daughter for taking me to

                        Sundance for my Birthday – I am already

                        planning for next year.

                       Terri ( at our studio) is working on a new

                        Blog – easier to read – so we will wait for

                        that to let you know about all the interviews

                         our clients are auditioning for.
