Tweet-The Series - The Web Series I was Just Cast In Launches Crowdfunding Campaign

So, in my other life I'm a professional union actress. It's actually my main career. Over the years I've been blessed to have been cast in many wonderful theatre projects all over the country, have had some commercial and industrial film work, some TV/Film work, audiobook narration and dubbing work, and now I can add Web Series to my credits.

I was just cast as Principal Potter-Lane in Season 2 of  "Tweet- The Series".  My character is the frazzled principal in the school where the lead of the series, young actress Taylor Blackwell, attends.  It's a teen paranormal webseries, that has actually cast teens. Not something very common in Hollywood-since teen characters are more often than not cast with adult actors in their 20s.  The filmmakers wanted to change that.  They also want to make sure that more women get work both in front of and behind the camera. In fact, when the casting call went out, they auditioned both males and females for Potter-Lane.  They obviously went female.  Thank goodness.

The series is a wonderfully quirky show about a young teen and her possessed IPhone. Yes, there is some humor.

The production company See-Worthy films has just launched an IndieGoGo campaign. Even low budget projects need money for essential things, like equipment, rental of locations, wardrobe, makeup, food and if we reach our goal, since this is a union SAG/AFTRA deferred pay project, the actors will actually get paid upfront. Any amount will help.

And if not, just join us on the journey.

Catch up on Season 1, on YouTube.  You won't regret it.  And look out for me in 3 episodes of Season 2, coming this Fall.

Brit Singer Tom Fletcher's Touching Time-Lapse Video Of His Wife's Pregnancy

Brit singer-songwriter and children's author Tom Fletcher (of McFly) took a photo every day throughout his wife Giovanna's pregnancy. He then wrote a lovely song called "Something New" to go with it. The end result is a touching 3 minute time-lapse video they call 'From Bump to Buzz."  Buzz is the name of the wee boy Giovanna gave birth to. 

It's lovely, and not surprising it's gone viral.

Secret Life of Dogs- Slow Motion Video Of an Alsatian Drinking Water

Love this slow motion video of an Alsatian dog lapping up water.  It's a snippet from a documentary about dogs titled "Secret Life of Dogs" and is narrated by Martin Clunes.

According to the YouTube page it was shot with a Phantom camera at 1000fps, and aired on ITV1 January 31st, 2013.

It's quite wonderfully amazing what we can see when we slow things down, or magnify them.

Who knew this is how dogs drink.

If Only For A Second- Photographer Captures Moment Of Carefreeness Of Cancer Patients - Mimi Foundation

Cancer patients often talk about the loss of being carefree, so Mimi Foundation (an organization founded in Belgium) gathered 20 cancer patients to participate in a makeover. But it wasn't quite the make-over one would expect. They were brought to a studio where a photographer sat behind a one-way mirror, unbeknownst to the participants. The patients were told to keep their eyes shut while the makeup artists and hair stylists transformed them. The photographer was then asked to capture the moment they first opened their eyes. And it's quite amazing. You will see why, for a second, they were able to forget their disease and recapture that feeling of being carefree.
