Episode #6 of "Family"

Hooray! It seems like people like this one. It is my favorite episode yet. Shawn & Nate are so wonderful as Brian & Jared. And of course series regulars Amber and Eric. And I'm especially proud of the sound mix on this one - worked very hard to equalize the background hum and the actors' voice volumes. Thank you all for your kind comments! :)

Writing episode #6

Well today I had a marathon critiquing and brainstorming session with a film community colleague about the draft of episode #6 which I had written for Sunday's shoot. And after we chatted, I went back to the computer and spent lots of hours doing a total OVERHAUL of the episode. Maybe for the DVD extras, we'll shoot the original script and ask you fans which YOU like better. :)

Ooooohhhhh - did you just hear correctly? There WILL be a "Family" DVD! Or two! And T-shirts! Pre-orders coming soon!

"Family" actor at the inauguration!

"Family" star Eric Smiley, who plays Stuart, is a hair stylist in his non-acting life, and get this: he is designing and styling Barack Obama's sister's hair for the inaugural balls this coming week! So we've all given him our personal messages of goodwill and love to deliver to President-elect Obama. Pretty thrilling. I hope he comes back with lots of photos! :)
