If you want to do “screenings” and “premiere’s” come to LA, guaranteed to fall right onto a red carpet somewhere in the midst of the flashing lights. I’ve only been here since last month and already I’ve walked on a couple to screen some upcoming and current projects, It’s part of the business. Premiere’s & Screenings in LA come fully equip with free Popcorn and Beverages, celebrity sightings and sometimes Q&A’s. They are fun but the best part is seeing the projects before your friends on social networks ruin the episodes/films by writing/tweeting/blogging/commenting about them.
Last night I was at the SAG Foundation for an intimate screening and Q&A for THE GOOD WIFE. It was pretty cool to hear the Creators/Executive Producers Robert and Michelle King talk about the production of the series. They script in LA and shoot in NYC which from a production standpoint is just mind blowing. They have a 4 hour call with the Director for each script so that they are all on the same page with what they are looking to accomplish in each episode. Josh Charles who plays the character ‘Will' was also on deck. He spoke about the challenges of acting on the show. The quick turnaround, having to sometimes learn lines from an upcoming episode while still taping a previous episode. His involvement in the casting process and his experience during pilot of the show and the development of his character on the show. It was pretty awesome.
Josh on Will and Alicia relationship: “We’ve known each other a long time and brought that history to the show.”
Josh on production and schedule: “It’s a fast-moving train and, as an actor, forces you to make quick, clear choices.”
Robert King: ‘We’re slaves to the dailies’ on how the stories are constantly changing.
Robert King on what they look for when auditioning actors: “It’s a dramatic show but we love comedy and want guest actors to be funny. “
Some other premieres/screenings I’ve done in the last month:
Season Premiere for new season of Starz show SPARTACUS: Vengeance
Screening of the new Jennifer Aniston film WANDERLUST
Premiere event for JOYFUL NOISE

Welp…it’s 2012 and the year started off with 50 degree temperatures in NYC…something else pretty interesting is that I’m officially in my fashion “AH HA” phase and I love it! (started before the new year but whatevs)…Hello 2012, I like you already!!!

It’s that time of the year where everyone gets super focused…so it seems. You know what I mean too…new gym memberships, goals to replace
boyfriends/girlfriends bad habits, cleaning out cell phone numbers closets, getting finances in order…all for the love of starting off right in the new year….you got it folks, New Years Resolutions
I can’t say that I’m a “New Years Resolutions” person, I pretty much randomly change things up throughout the year. It’s cool to think of certain things and be all “On January 1st I will XYZ” but come on… -______-
I wonder how many people actually stick to their resolutions for more than 1 month, or what percentage of people at the end of the year can say they successfully stuck with their “change” for the whole year? Also how long do you keep the resolution for? Is the goal to create a habit or to have a temporary goal fulfilled? I suppose a thorough list contains both.
Clarity: I agree with goals, I support goals, in fact everyone should have a list of goals and that list should always rotate. Once you obtain a goal you mark it off and new goals should constantly be added. It’s important to be clear on what you want, what you are reaching for and understanding what you need to do to get there. I encourage you to not wait until new years each year to do this. Always work on goals and aspirations and improvements, all year round…however, If goals for you = new years resolutions then hey, go forth and be great!

It seems as though the tradition of video game tournaments hit an all time record of trash talking this year between me and my cousins, younger and older…I mean talking THEEEEEEE MOST ISH, challenging everyone in the house, clearing out the entire floor to ensure enough room for wii and kinect…it was on this year. Dance Central 2 got the most airtime and for someone who never played it, I killed it! I destroyed my older cousin in 2 rounds straight, she couldn’t beat me if I stopped playing -________-
The 7 year old is the one that no one typically wants to play because he’s a dancer and he’s good…however this year, even after taking his kicks off and his tshirt to maneuver better, he was still defeated by his 12 year old brother. It’s all fun and games until the dancer stops dancing…
Left score: older cousin. Right score: her 7 yr old son -___________-
At the end of the day we had 1 casualty, someone who literally stopped playing! My mom was even playing, not officially but she was doing all the moves and truth be told if she stood in front of the sensor she probably would’ve won a round or two, I see you ma! Christmas game challenge was fun, definitely coming through with the game face on next year!
I’ve been challenged to Dance Central 2 when I get back to LA too, I’m ready…
