It's been a looong ass few days and I'm ready for this trailer to come out. We've had so much support and love from all over the world and I just hope that we can deliver... ;)

I feel great about the trailer AND we just received great news that heroine films is going to be advertised on all the major search engines (besides Google) by next week!!! YAY! We've got a few people writing articles about us that we'll try to get published in the gay press (girlfriends, curve, etc.), so we'll see how that goes.

I just want to send my love to:

TAMI T. in LA for your constant support and love! You rock my world grrl! Can't wait to see you in a couple of months!!!

And Marni T. in NH (my oldest and dearest friend on the whole world) amaze me! Thanks so much for putting the word out and hooking me up with so many cool people. You're amazing and if all goes well, maybe we'll see you in NH soon when we're filming!

Filming and this whole bizness is tumultuous to say the least...I wish I could explain all that is going on in my/our's crazy, but wonderful and I can't wait to push on...

Love you all.

More later!

taking care of bizness

I wake up every morning and answer wonderful e-mails and letters, then go off to the day job where I deal with inconsiderate people who just want to complain because their so unhappy in their lives. They just want to take it out on others and feel "taken care of". I guess that's where I come do the taking care part.

Well, I just want to say thanks to everyone who writes every day and tells us to keep on keepin' on, or that we rock or just thanks.

Thanks for "taking care of me/us". You all make me feel so much better about the world.

Well, what can we say...

We spent the whole weekend filming and everything turned out greeeeat!!! Even if we did pull a 21 hour shooting day on Saturday and we got NO sleep, we're incredibly happy with the way everything turned out. It was nice to get back to true guerilla style filmmaking and we had the help of friends and family...

We just want to say thanks to the following people:

Rob Givens - for loaning us his camera (we LOVE you!!!!)
Ethan Silverman - for loaning us the best location ever AND for putting up with our crew and all our extras for the longest night of filming ever!!!
Ian Sherrington - for running around with us and being a kick ass DP (and for the lighting kit!)
Olivia Ramo - for showing up in between and after shifts to act for us.
Cherrae Stuart - for being the best, most supportive (and gorgeous) friend/actor we know!!!
Ian Bloom - for the extras lights
Drew Coombs - for driving all that way to play the best Cooch ever!!!
Phil & Justin - for stepping in when we needed you most!
Vickie Hannah - for stepping up and playing Marlene for us again
Mr. Wayne Crawford - ;) just thank you... We loved you for Valley Girl. We love you even more now ;)

From here, we'll be catching up on e-mail, sending out the shirts/undies, cutting the trailer and the interviews (COMING SOON!!!), doing more print interviews and just trying to survive on less than 5 hours of sleep each night! ;)

Side note: Thanks to whomever it was that announced heroine films at the ashevile drag show last week. We heard about it, but don't know how it happened!!

Also, look for the gladdest thing trailer at the next Drag it in, Drag it out show in Durham (hopefully)! We're working on it...

You all have been soooo supportive and it was so amazing to get the sweet e-mails while we were doing the hard days of the shoot. It kept us moving!

love you all! More later...

best mom

This has absolutely nothing to do with the production company. But it made Mel and I both cry. Especially as today is the anniversary of my mother's death.

This is truly the best mother I've ever heard of:

sending over our blogs from the website...archivin' so to speak!

We love you guys so so much. Thank you.

We've had some amazing and touching responses already. I can't even believe how awesome some of the women who have stepped up to support us are! We have a woman who is trying to get a group together in Edinburgh, Scotland to do a fundraiser for us, which makes her one of my fav people of all time! (and a lot teary eyed...I just can't believe how amazing some people are)Thank you so much to all of you who have already donated, gotten shirts and undies and passed out fliers. You are all truly wonderful.
