Legacy cast on set Sunday.

It’s another Taurian Tuesday coming off of a busy Sunday helping Fred Tee out with his short, Legacy, that features fairy tale characters as demon hunters. It was a fun shoot and fun getting to work on other people’s sets to see how they run things and handle themselves and their actors to pick up any pointers for mine.

Tiffany Hoa on set

Some cast members were people I have worked with before like the always amazing Mike Loud, and others I have seen a lot of but haven’t worked with yet like John Charles Dickson. It was a good time though that saw me in a tree to get a shot. Whatever it takes to get the job done I say. Ideally everything works out in post. We got in a bit of a time crunch a couple places being backed up against call times for some actors on other sets and dying camera batteries toward the end of the day, but things worked out. Definitely dig the concept of what Fred is doing and hopefully it can take off.

Perky Chicks and Roundhouse Kicks!

Cheeerleader Karate School
On the subject of demon hunting, which is one thing CKS is about it was good to get a chance to talk to Tiffany Hoa, who played a witch in Fred’s short film. Tiffany is also slated to play a role in CKS. In our original plan for the series, she was going to play one of the past cheer team members who comes back for reasons. In the feature she will play the same role and in the same capacity but we will see her before she comes back in the last battle that is the reason the team is disbanded at the start of the film. CKS is still on Amazon, Youtube and now on Sparkk TV for people to check out and see what the concept is about as we work to retool it a bit.

20 Minutes or Less
We’re casting for 20 Minutes or Less as we retool that series. The first of the trilogy is set to shoot May 21 at what we have affectionately come to know as Mabrey Studios. It’s the home of the Mabrey family. Jenni Mabrey of course known to us as Evelyn Buchanan in the Party Girl series. Jenni opened up her home to us last time for the shoot and is willing to do so again which is awesome. But she is an awesome individual and talented actress, so it’s natural for her.

Party Girl / Rave
Speaking of Evelyn Buchanan, Jenni will be dusting her off for a short film that will time jump Party Girl from where she is in the season two finale to a handful of years later. We’re looking for the older Rachel now. It will be a nice and tidy short that will set us up for anything we may way to do storywise as in live action form, I wouldn’t want to do high school PG without Cait Pool involved. I suppose I guess unless we got a lot of money to produce more. Folks who have not seen Party Girl can catch it on youtube (of course) as well as Sparkk TV, a site that aggregates web series for people to discover and view. Also the first season of PG is on BlackFlag.TV with episodes playing daily. Working on getting the second season on there.

In the Hopper
Plenty of projects are in the hopper. A few of them, HTB and Get In will star Annie Cruz in lead roles. We are determined to do and finish Insourcing. We had contemplated a gender swap just to be different since it had not worked in three incarnations with the roles as guys so we wanted to change it up and see what would happen, but things fell through with the actress we planned to take the lead with it. So we retool and we move on. Too many ideas to do and no desire to let the action or more importantly the inaction of others deter from our goals. It’s a grind and that’s OK we will continue to do so, learn, get better and will get to the top.

It’s been a minute we know, but the hiatus is over, we’re here and so is Party Girl!

Thursday night myself and Party Girl cast members DJ Economou, Jenni Mabrey and the new Rachel Buchanan, Cait Pool, had a chat Thursday night with the hosts of SCNS: Live, a Dallas based web show that highlights entertainment and popculture and gives love to Dallas areas projects and people.

It was fun for all to have another avenue to chat about Party Girl and bring some attention to the show.

We’re hoping to connect with the SCNS crew again for some on set features in the future. Check out the link synced up to our appearance.

And then go and check the whole episode of course.


Well it’s a change you won’t see until season two actually.

Jeanne Lampley has resigned from the show as she has a summer acting gig planned in NYC. We wish her well in her future endeavors and thank her for her work on the show.

We have quintet of ladies who have put their hat in the ring to replace the outgoing Jeanne, and hope to have one in place by the end of weekend.

And of course fans of Jeanne still have nine more episodes of her as Party Girl.

I hope to have Chapter V delivered to the masses soon, which, yes I have said, but in truth we needed one nagging pick up scene that Jeanne had to shoot, which we did, so now we can finish it.

In the meantime, work has been continuing on season two.

We have shot some fun scenes with Giovannie Cruz, Richard Houghton, Ada Perez and Stan Baker, all reprising season one roles.

Between takes on set.

We got to a few scenes I was particularly excited to do in the form of the Congregation led by Logan Thomas as THE MINISTER and Victoria Sawyer and Sanjay Nilliyat as two of his disciples, SISTER PIKE and BROTHER DIESEL  Brady Kickhaefer was great in his role of equal rights activist, MARK SPEARS, even though he is a dirty Kansas City Chiefs fan. And we got a smidgen from Oscar Seung as DANIEL CHU/CORONA of the IMMORTALS. Who you will see lots more of in the 9th episode of season two.

Getting our shoot on.

Getting our shoot on.

Dallas Comic-Con was last weekend and we had talked with Fabian Lopez about attending it to help promote Party Girl.

We didn’t end up going, but Fabian did in costume at least one day as CamoFly, his Party Girl character. And though he did not get as much love from some attendees, he still had a good time.

We plan on being armed with flyers and such for upcoming conventions and we are making note of which ones we are going to attend. All comes down to the almighty dollar. Dollars are the only reason the revamped taurianfilms.com has not hit yet. But that’s the price you pay when you’re doing it yourself. But we will do whatever we need to bring the Party Girl story to the masses.

 

And of course, if you haven’t seen it, catch up with Chapter IV of Party Girl at:
