... And filming begins. Check out our awesome progress!
FIRST SHOOT - DOWNTOWN ATLANTA
Hello All! Our shooting schedule is right on track! My partner Kirk and I had a great time filming the scene above ... an emotional scene involving Crystal Michelle aka "FRAN." Check out Crystal gazing out of her bedroom window just before getting dressed. Isn't she elegant? This picture definitely captures the look and feel of the project.
Next, cast members ....
..... are headed to LAKE LANIER to film an introductory scene on the lake. This will be our first time filming with all the main characters. I can't wait to work with all of them!
PATRICE FISHER, star of ZANE'S SEX CHRONICLES, TROIS 3: THE ESCORT, and many other movies, has officially joined our cast. We are very excited and can't wait to work with such an awesome actress!
LAKE LANIER - SECOND SHOOT
Our SECOND SHOOT was a blast! We completed another day of filming on Lake Lanier last weekend. The weekend was awesome and despite a few bumps and bruises (what a story to tell!!!), we persevered! I would like to thank my handsome and gorgeous cast and my brilliant partner Kirk Davis (who shot these fab pics) for offering their tremendous talent. These pics were all taken just before the cast dressed in their fabulous attire and began filming on the luxurious houseboat. To our backers and supporters ... I think we have something special here! THANK YOU!!!!
Letha Taylor aka "Destiny" ... makeup looking great and waiting for her LIMO ride (not) to the boat :) .....

NEXT, we will film at SWEETWATER CREEK STATE PARK with Crystal Michelle, Patrice Fisher ....
and our newest cast member ... RON WALTON (WASTE MANAGEMENT, DEPLETION, and countless other movies). Wish us luck!!!!!
SWEETWATER CREEK PARK - THIRD SHOOT
We had a great time filming our THIRD SCENE, a casual, yet suspenseful scene at Sweetwater Creek State Park. We definitely didn't let a little rain stop the show! I would like to thank my awesome cast ... Crystal Michelle, Patrice Fisher and Ron Walton. Also, special thanks to PATRICE FISHER who flew in from LA to offer her talents!!! You guys made the crew's job so much easier! I would also like to thank my partner and filming guru, Kirk Davis.
We look forward to TONY BRAVADO (Tyler Perry's "Let's Stay Together" and "The Haves and the Have Nots," etc.) and ....
ANDREW BELLAMY (UNDER THE SKIN) joining the team for our next shoot in downtown Atlanta.
