I did what I said I would do and I uploaded all 130 or so of my photos into the Photo Album I have on Google. This is where they all are, and I’ll alert you when I upload any new photos.

Casting has begun on my new film. We hope to start shooting in September – Definitely NOT going to linger on it too long this time, we all learnt from past experiences that this does nothing for moral or people’s enthusiasm to see the finished product! Do you know more people saw the TRAILER for Lift My Spirits than the actual finished product?!

“The ones we love hurt us the most.”

Sounds poetic; I’m sure it must be from a book or something.

I like books… ’cause I’m shy.

I found out the news below about the Sister Sister twins appearing Eastenders is a complete load of lies, unfortunately. However, here’s something that always cheers me up – news on the new X-Files film:

“Gillian told the Daily Express: ‘It was not something I longed for on a regular basis but as soon as we start talking about doing it again, I get very excited. A lot has happened in the past few years but we are excited by each other’s company and I think it will be loads of fun.'” Source

Any news? I plan to update the Photo gallery sometime soon, as it’s been a long while since I added anything. Most of the photos will be moved over my Google Photo Album.

Like, OhMiGod, I have some totally awesome news for you! Tia and Tamera Mowry, identical twins most remembered for their roles as twins separated-at-birth in Sister Sister, a long-time Nickelodeon favourite of mine, are heading to the UK to film a potentially reoccurring role in EASTENDERS!

Okay, whilst I’m not really an Eastenders fan, I may be after this! They’re said to turn up in Albert Square next month and will be involved in a romantic-comedy plot with Gus and Mickey (I actually know who they are… barely). They each end up dating a sister – but neither knows that they are twins.

I got round to watching Twitches, their Disney Channel Original movie, the other week and whilst it was a blatant cash-in on the success of Harry Potter, I actually really enjoyed it. Definitely makes me want to watch Sister Sister again, but it’s actually not on anymore, and there are no DVDs released as of yet.

There’s something slightly hypnotising when it comes to watching identical twins – I’m sure I’ve already told you my faves in this years Big Brother are Sam and Amanda… No, I’m not watching it, but I know basically what happens through watching BBLB.

Anyway, on a personal note I and two others have finished writing the next Trixie Pictures/Jimmy Teens TV production, and hopefully we’ll start filming it soon. I had an awful dream last night – our first film, Lift My Spirits, finally had a premiere screening in a cinema, and at the end this guy came up to us saying he wanted to show it in Sunday schools… and something about French students learning from it!!!

Anyway, what’s so bad is that when I woke up I realised that this dream version of “Lift My Spirits” was NOTHING like the real version and in my dream it was very… well, it looked very professional, and I’ll hold up my hand and admit, aside from the editing(!), the real version still just comes across as something we shot on Mini-DVs with no lighting and no ending. However, this has made me realised what NEEDS to be done differently second time around – top of that list being filming the ending FIRST! The ending of this new script is potentially the biggest scene, so it actually makes a lot of sense to do it first, and I can’t believe it took a dream to make me realise this… but maybe I have been a bit absent minded lately.
