Break Through

Hi all,

Happy almost Halloween!  I will be wearing my new Rogue costume that I made with the help of my friend, Sara.  Check out her professional cosplay page at https://www.facebook.com/SaraMoniCosplay/  I have always loved Rogue from the comics with her unfortunate ability of not being able to touch people, her being Southern, her fun attitude, and for being Gambit’s other half.  I never thought I’d get to dress up as her.  I learned a great deal about sewing, especially how to sew spandex and boot covers.  I have way more to learn though, as I can’t handle zippers yet.

On the acting front, as you have probably seen if you follow my fan page, I am set to be part of a pilot that will be pitched to major networks.  I met the creator/producer, Mike Austin, at a networking party and he said I would be a great fit.  That is all I can say about it for now.  I have to let the official people release the official information.  Who would have thought you could get cast in something just by going to an event?

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to do two more commercials as part of the Burning Suns Entertainment Adobe campaign.  These involved fashion and funny business with donuts.  I was really glad to be part of so many of the ads.  Here is the link again to watch all the ads already completed: https://www.facebook.com/BurningSuns/

In Go-Girls news, I have an official executive producer and a potential director (which I probably already mentioned) and I am going forth with the crowdfunding campaign.  While my executive producer approaches potential investors, I will be putting together the IndieGoGo campaign and I need to get the written pitch and pitch videos done soon.  I met with a graphic designer on Monday to create a poster specifically for the pre-production period and crowdfunding campaign.

If you’d like to know more about the original presentation of The Go-Girls as a staged reading, here below this post is the blog post I did for the Fertile Ground blog back in 2010.  Sadly, there are no pictures or a recording of the staged reading itself.

I submitted Business Casual to the Phoenix Film Festival for a total of four festivals.  I am debating whether or not I should submit to another festival.  Those submission fees add up.  The short has already been accepted into the Arizona Community Short Film Festival, which happens at 6:30pm on November 24 at Filmbar.  Event information (but not yet for tickets) is available at the event page here: https://www.facebook.com/events/895794797170380/

Pulp Diction Participant Talks Process

Fertile Ground Festival

Anna Sahlstrom, playwright of one of the Pulp Diction late night pieces, called The Go Girls, shares how she went from JRR Tolkein spoof to late night pulpy feminine empowerment in just a few simple steps…

Every story for me starts out as a daydream or a passing idea.  Some people come to create a framework for an idea for a story and some just sit down and let the muse come to them.  I have tried both means of writing and have found that I can’t completely map what I’m going to write.  I don’t use outlines or other schematics.  I simply imagine the story I want to tell and I go with it.

The Go-Girls began for me as a funny idea for a story while I was at a meeting for the Women’s Ensemble performance group at Loyola Marymount University.  We created the group because of…
