Missed the Boat...But Swimming Ashore...

Full time jobs, feature length screen-play, networking, hospital visits, side gigs, sleep-deprived...the list goes on and on but there is absolutely no good excuse we can come up with for completely dropping the ball on the January 31st premiere of the 3rd episode...

Some days I stretch myself pretty thin and Shawnee has been under the weather this winter, but we are wholehearltedly dedicated to seeing the third installlment of ABA to it's new February 14th premiere. A true "labor of love" for Valentine's day.

Today i thought it would be nice to show stills from the animatics we've been working on. In episode 3 of our six part series, Whitney (Lynesha Kately) finds herself taken hostage by a mysterious creature with a BIG booming voice! (Eric Moss)

Now you may be asking yourself, "Why is that girl smiling if she's in great danger?" Well...Her facial expressions haven't been tailored to the scene just yet. But it promises to be a pretty fun ride--especially with some brilliant directorial plans Shawnee has in store. I have a few tricks up my sleeve as well...

Here's one more:

And you're just going to have to stick around to find out what's going on in this one!

In other news, earlier today Shawnee and I visited the NBC Diversity Expo, and it's always funny being in a hall full of other ambitious artists--you can just smell the hunger. The highlight of the event for me was listening to Scrubs writers Angela Nissel and Bill Lawrence crack the audience up with tales--from booties to bed head--straight out of their writer's room.

The panel was listed in the event guide as: "Jumpstarting Your Career as a Hollywood Writer." While some may sit around and wait on AAA, I'm pulling out my cables and revving the engine on this next episode...among other things... :D
