Fall is on the way, I can feel it in my bones! James and I went to a corn maze opening this past Saturday, and there was almost no one there. We got a private hayride and over five miles of corn mazes all to ourselves. Besides not wearing the appropriate footwear, it was a lot of fun. (Note: Sandals are not a good choice for freshly tilled ground.) 🙂
I love fall festivals, Halloween happenings, and the general spirit of football returning. I do not watch football myself, but it just feels right to see it playing on TVs everywhere we go. Everyone has an extra kick in their step as the promise of cooler weather becomes the real thing. Bring it on.
I’ve been working on a film for the past 5 weeks or so assisting my friend Molly Coffee in the art department on a project similar in size to what Electric Bleau will be. It’s been a great learning experience on many fronts. There will be a S&S post coming out soon documenting all that I’ve learned, so stay tuned for more insights.
Speaking of Electric Bleau, big steps are still being taken with forward momentum. We just finalized our PPM with Stacey Davis, which has been passed off to a few select parties/entities. Send all the posi vibes!! Our hopes are to film next spring.
The New Orleans Sazerac continues its run this fall at the New Orleans Film Festival in Louisiana and BendFilm Festival in Oregon, and hopefully a few more. We will also be making our way up to Cucalorus in November as James is heading up the Cuctails program again for the second year! It was at Cucalorus last year where we first debuted The New Orleans Sazerac as a secret screening.
In case you’re not following our bus project, you are missing out on some big things! The Eldon just got his official Georgia registration as an RV + tag. We got to stage the inside to make him look like a real home. He isn’t done quite yet, but we are getting closer and closer. You can follow him on Instagram or on the official website.
I’m hopeful that the second half of this year will hold a lot of positive career and personal milestones. The first half of 2016 has been kind. I feel like the older I get, the faster things seem to fly by. I want to be intentional in my day-to-day appreciation of small moments, of the process. I already shared on FB this week, but in case you missed there is a great article by Stacey London out on Refinery29 that you must read about women and age. It applies to everyone, really. I’m only 37, but I find that I already relate to a lot of her insights. It’s a refreshing read for those of you might find some inspiration out of it.
