Living with Your Sidekick *** Eye of Horus *** Website updates

Hey guys.

I know it’s been ages. A lot is going on and it means less time to update, and trying to batch a few things together for an update.

First and foremost, the yearly IAJF gala is coming up on November 7th, at the Alice Tully Hall here in NYC, which means I’m spending some quality time with different Office programs. We have amazing speakers this year, with former prime minister and and a paralympic medalist. All very exciting. But more about that, maybe later on

I’ve been collaborating with my dear friend, Camille Theobald, on a new web project. Camille and I worked together many times before, she directed some of the episodes of “Hit the MARC” and even guest starred every now and then. We brought Juan J. Arroyo on board. He directed the second half of Hit the MARC.

Basically, what we did, is a two parts pilot, for a show called “Living with Your Sidekick.”

What happens when two super heroes move in together to improve their efficiency? Maybe the opposite of efficiency.

Anyways, we’d like to see where it goes, and it has a bit of interactive element to it. We just released our first episode, introducing one of the two heroes. Next episode will be released next week. Check it out!

 

We also have some original art work by the wonderful Hila Taylor. Just a little taste:

A lot is going on with the “The Eye of Horus” lately, I just can’t exactly tell you about it because it’s in Japanese : )

The show is set to premiere in America on the internet in November. In the mean time, it had a premiere in Tokyo, Japan, in addition to Osaka. There will be a premiere event in London, and in NYC. Once I know more, I’ll share, but it seems like people really enjoyed the Tokyo premiere, and considering the amazing camera work, and the beautiful locations we used, I can’t wait to see it!

Feel free to check the website, it has bios and all sorts of fun stuff.

On the technical side, I updated the resume page, added the episode of “Sidekick” to the reel page, and updated the production page!

Have a great week everyone!


Hit the MARC Finale *** Sweet Music Video *** IAJF Summer Gala

I know it’s been a while, but there was a lot to gather!

First, and foremost, we *finally* got the series finale of Hit the MARC out.

This is very exciting, and it concludes, for the time being, 2 years of work. We’re pretty proud of what we’ve done, and achieved, and we are so grateful for all of you who watched, and supported, and donated.

Here’s the episode:

I also updated the gallery with photos from the episode.

We will be working on the gag reel in the following weeks, in order to complete our DVD for our special backers!

I spent 4 days mid June, in Saratoga, NY, with a great team, to shoot a music video for Marcus Ruggiero’s song – “Sweet”. It was a crazy experience, we got to start at 5 AM and finish at 3 AM some of the days, but Saratoga is beautiful, and I was really happy to be a part of it. You can see a rough, partial version of the would be final product, right here:

I got to meet and work with lovely people, and I can’t wait to see, and show you the final product! In the meantime, I’ve got some nice stills, taken by the lovely LeRon Lee. Click the photo to see the new gallery!

I updated the resume page accordingly, and the Facebook page as well.

The day after I got back from Saratoga, I joined once more, the production team of LinCommunicatin, for the IAJF summer gala for their young leadership

It was a lovely evening at the NYC public library, with special entertainment – Comedian Maz Jobrany.

Next on the agenda is the winter gala!

Here are a few photos from the evening.

And so, to conclude, June was a bit crazy indeed.

Lastly, I just got the word that “Shadows of Love” is finally locked and ready to be submitted to festivals, after a long period of post production. I know that some of the festivals already have a sure spot for the film that has been anticipated for a while, so once I have definite news, you’ll know!

Have a lovely week, everyone!

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!
