Very Important Lesson: for those novice set designers or poor director/producer types like me--> Don't spray paint in your basement where there's no ventilation!! I learned the very very hard way by almost dying tonight :o
I was working on the set of the dropship interior and went through 3 cans of black spray paint without a mask because.."I just want to get it done fast!!" Boy what a bad move! Everything's ok now, but for a bit it was hazy and I thought the house might explode if the spray paint ozone was ignited by the hot water heater's pilot light...can that happen? Email me if it can!
Brianna Shaughnessy (Willie) is originally from Tampa, Florida. Back home where its warm, she did everything from Community Theatre to T.V. Productions. Yet realistically she knew she would have to let go of her palm trees and replace them with taxis in order to pursue her career. So Brianna moved to the Big Apple over three years ago to attend The School for Film and Television, a two year acting conservatory located in the heart of Chelsea. Since graduation Brianna has appeared on the History Channel Series, "Breaking Vegas." She also got killed off by a lap top computer in an Independent horror film, "Red Midnight," set for release this month. In her spare time she enjoys writing, kickboxing, and of course the movies.

I wanted to give you guys a preview of what our musician, Christopher, has been working on. I met Christ online on the StudentFilmmakers.com website. I was blown away by his work and contacted him. After looking through our website, hearing about the project, and getting a copy of the script, Chirs composed this short clip for us. I think it's amazing!! Soundtrack work is usually tailored to the final film which in our case hasn't been filmed yet! But it's great to have Chris on the team and already playing with different themes...Chris, you're AMAZING!! To listen to the music, hit the Play icon on the mini player to your left...My apologies if you have problems..still a little new to the Flash MX 2004 Suite...
