New Episode for Hit the MARC *** Ukeletters

At long last, after months of work, episode 5 of Hit the MARC finally aired.

From now on, we’ll try to upload something new every 2 weeks, until the end of the show after episode 8 (but fear not, we have a few minisodes in between).

Thanks for All your support and patience, it’s good to be back.

You can watch the episode below.

My dear friend, Camille Theobald, who also directed and was a guest on “Hit the MARC”, invited me over to her hilarious Ukeletters corner on which she shares a bitter experience from her NYC life. She does so by writing letters to people who pissed her off. Every now and then she has a guest sharing his/hers own experience and writes a letter for them.

Here’s the interview we had:

And here’s the actual letter:

Another minor update: I’m going into the studio next week to do ADR for “The Conellys.” Can’t wait to see how this one is coming along.

More things are going on, but as you know, you’ll know when things are set in stone.

Have a lovely weekend!


Hit the MARC is back!

category: Hit the MARC

so tons of stuff are happening, but I usually like to report when something is already out there.

We wrapped episodes 5,6 and 7 of the show, and two minisodes. With few scenes left and 2 minisodes to wrap the entire series, it was time to start uploading again.

Episode 5 is coming soon, but until then, enjoy our new promo which will give you a glimpse of what’s to come!


***Tiger in the Dark***Hit the MARC

Hey guys!

I hope everyone has been great!

I’m in London, heading back to NYC  soon, and starting to film an exciting project a day after I get back.

So I spend random rides on the Tube memorizing lines. Nice.

One of the things I’ll be working on soon after I get back, is “Tiger in the Dark”.

The following trailers have been released, and I hope you’d like them.

We resume shooting later this month and during February.

While I’m away, Juan, who’s the director of the second half of the season of “Hit the MARC”, is filming with the guys. They’re working on 2 new minisodes, so as always, just a little bit longer, and we’ll have all of the material we need. Then, it’s just me spending a few good hours in editor’s mode in order to bring these to you.

So I am keeping my promise to you, and one day, you Kickstarter backers will get your rewards!

Stay tuned!

On a bit of a personal note, I want to use this space for a recommendation. Years ago, when I did a cabaret in Israel, I sang a song called “Lost in Translations.” An absolutely beautiful song.

The song is part of the score of a musical called “Lift.”

“Lift” is *finally* opening in London at the end at this month (I’m missing it, of course).

The people behind the show are Ian Watson, who wrote the book, and Craig Adams who wrote the score and whom I got to meet and is lovely.

The show will open on January 30th for a limted run until February 24th.

If you’re in London, or around, I *highly* recommend you go and see it.

More details are on their website.

If you can’t make it to London, you *can* download their concept album which is beautiful.

That’s it for today, I hope I can give you more soon, but for the most part, I’m excited to head back to the city and go back t work.

Have a lovely weekend!


***Like Ingrid Bergman Screening***New Original Short Project***A Tiger in the Dark

The details:

Friday, January 4th, at 7:30 PM.

The trailer is below.

I started working with a lovely guy, Mark Fraunhofer, on a series of half scripted shorts. We just started, so updates to follow, but I already have a few nice stills to show you like this one:

It also called for a gallery update, right here. More to follow!

I’ve recently took part in a shoot for a movie called “A Tiger in the Dark: Indestructible.” This is actually a sequel and my role is quite exciting mostly because I get to give a hard time to others, and that’s always tons of fun. We will resume filming next year, and I can’t wait. It’s one of these stories that you have absolutely no idea what’s going on. Not to mention, I might have an action scene with special effects and whatnot and get to kick some ass.

Here are a few photos:

The yearly Gala for the Iranian American Jewish Federation, which took place at the Lincoln Arts Center in NYC, is behind us. Once again, I had a fabulous time, working with a generous, warm community of people, as part of the LinCommunication team. I sat in the control room, for the second year in a row, in charge of the visual aspects during the event. The gala was followed by a lovely after party on the rooftop of the famous Empire Hotel in NYC. I’m letting the producer side of me rest for a while. But probably not for long.

I recently got cast in my third NYFA project which will be shot early next year. I’m very excited. Work with NYFA is always great and leads to meeting amazing people and portray really cool characters.

There might be zombies involved, and it’s also a lead, so I’m truly happy and can’t wait to work with two lovely guys from Spain who are spending the next few weeks in pre-production, including translating the script from Spanish to English.

I can’t say much yet, but they created a whole new intriguing world, that will be really interesting to explore.

Every time I work with NYFA it’s a bit on the horror-y/sci-fi-y side. I guess I’m just this kind of a girl.

Watch this space!

Hit the MARC is still not forgotten. I shot a short scene yesterday, and yes, we still have a few more to go which is why this is taking so long. But you contributed for us to make a whole season, and so we shall. With two new original songs, a theme song, more interesting characters, and whatnot.

That’s it folks! Happy holidays to you all, wherever you are and whatever it is you’re celebrating!

Be safe and merry and stay warm!

Next update – next year!

 


Streamys***Steam Clock – Audience Favorite!***The Bar Series*** Crossover Games***MTV

Hey guys! It’s been a while, and mostly because I’ve been really distracted with work.

But here are a few updates.

First, a few ongoing things, and then on to the new.

The deadline for fan submissions to the Streamys, was extended and is now through November 30th. If you have a Twitter, feel free to suggest us : )

See below the two categories you can help us with!

Speaking of Hit the MARC, we still owe you 4 more episodes and a few minisodes. It’s gonna take the two more months or so, but you’ll get them. We’re all a bit pre-occupied.

Yesterday marked one year since we filmed “Steam Clock”, which was one of the best experiences for me thus far, and I got to share it with Constanza Palavecino, whom you know as Pillar from Hit the MARC.

What a better way to celebrate than the fact that it won the Audience Favorite award at this year’s ShockerFest in California!

Check out the trailer and the sci-fi schedule here.

The film is also being broadcast on Comcast 195 every night until the end of the month. More details on KAZV-TV website.

Earlier in October, episode 4 of “The Bar Series”, a really cool new webseries, was released.

I filmed this episode in January and it was fun to see the result.

You can check it out below, and watch the rest of the episodes too!

***

At the end of August, I got to work with Rosario Pellerito (the director of “The Bar Series”)once again, on a pilot called “Rush Call”. One of the starts is the lovely Khaled Ouaaz who was my co-star on Cerberus. Watch this space for more updates about the project!

***

I spent the majority of September in Israel, and while I was there, I got to film a little guest appearance for the project “The Crossover Games”. An original feature, combining the Big Brother concept, with characters from different fandoms. It was a blast.

The production was amazing, premiered at the Icon Festival in Tel Aviv, had 4 sold out nights as part of the festival, and was later shown in one of the biggest cinemas in Tel Aviv.

Here’s the website (though I must warn you, it’s in Hebrew).

And lastly, a picture of the entire cast and crew just moments before the premiere.

When I got back to NYC mid October, I got lucky enough to shoot a commercial for MTV.

Be on the lookout for a girl with dreadlocks jumping in slow motion. It was a lot of fun. Got to do some green screen work, jump on a trampoline and meet lovely people.

***

That very same week, I filmed a few scenes for “The Nautical Adventure of Captain Sqns in NYC”. I got to work again with the lovely Camille Theobald, a dear friend, who also directed “Hit the MARC” and had a few guest appearances. We got to kayak together in the waters of Brooklyn, close to Coney Island.

Cast and crew were absolutely lovely, and it was a great day.

They already screened their pilot a few months back, right here in NYC, so watch this space for more updates.

***

These days I’m totally committing my time, for the second year in a row, to LinCommunication, and the Iranian American Jewish Federation of New York, as we’re preparing for their annual gala. 1000 people, at the Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Arts Center, NYC, at the end of November.

They are a wonderful group of people, and the artistic process of producing this thing is as amazing as it was last year.

That’s it! Promise to update more often so we don’t end up with crazy lengthed posts again!

Have a lovely week!
