At Last

Both Lorraine and I are finally home from our whirl wind adventure. I thought you would want to see some of the stills from the RAW footage. Kimberly Butler is an "actor's director". She was fanastic to work with and we are so thankful! We had many different locations, none were sets. They were all real, secret hideaways found by Kim and her team. Look at these magical stills....
Here we have the sea serpent of Fire Island. She heard a violin's song in the distance and the melody beconed her to shore.
Once on land, she immediately felt lonely for the sea, witnessing the cruel human world around her.

A hem....ok that's the sappy "movie talk". What really happened? We worked like dogs, froze our butts off in the cold atlantic, and had deer ticks crawling up our skirts. This is how I felt about it...EXCITED, yet whale like. Kim is trying to "throw me over her shoulder" with fatal results.

After the first makeup test, I was suddenly possessed by the spirit of Ozzy Osborne, or was it Bob McKenzie from Strange Brew? Hmmmm.
Here we have our little sea serpent, using her breasts as floatation devices.

I'm sure the boys on the ferry will never be the same. Joking aside, this is a beautiful still.

I loved how I could hear the sand sway as the waves came in. This video is going to be so magic. I have so many fond memories, I don't know where to begin. I've been home 24 hours now and I still can't find my toothbrush. Jetlag has finally set in so I guess we'll share the photos in increments.

I loved pretending to be a princess, a fairy and a mermaid. What else could a small town girl ask for? YES! We had brownies too. Thanks to our amazing stylist's Aunt.

Check myspace for more photos.

Venus of Doom!

Here's a couple more Mac Photos of Venus, my camera is fixed and we will try and get better ones soon. Bengal Kitties are not SLOW, they move FAST and are very like the jungle cats they were bred from. She does everything they do in the wild, dragging things, hiding, jumping and stalking. ( And sitting in her water bowl. ) ( also , I am not sure if Asian Lepord Cats in the wild are quite so intent on trying to e-mail Someone, running back and forth across the keyboard and desparately trying to surf the web for, well, do we really want to know for WHAT??? ) Facinating little bits of pure energy. So sweet tho!

Here is my little Sweetness attempting to eat Holly Blacks new book Tithe.......

I sent Malena some more pics from my camera today, they are all of her as the Mermaid tho, so she will have to decide which ones can go out into the world, hee-hee! I have been talking with Kimberly every day and her and Byrdie are more and more excited as they get further into the edit!

I will leave you with this...

Venus telling me it is high time SHE got some attention....

Love, Mermiads and Kitties,
