Senseless deaths really make you realize how fragile and fleeting life is. Let go of that grudge. Delete that subtweet from drafts. And hug the shit out of the people you love. At the end of the day, our connections are all that matter. The rest are just petty distractions.

I have been on many sets with LOTS of guns shooting “blanks”. They don’t shoot out projectiles, but they DO shoot out an explosive force depending on “load” (1/2 load is strongest, 1/4 load, “NY load”). MANY times I saw the more dangerous/deadly (and LOUD) 1/2 load used

Halyna grew up on Soviet military base in Arctic Circle, graduated from Kyiv National Uni w/degree in int’l journalism, worked on British docs as an investigative journalist, graduated from AFI, was selected as one of American Cinematographer magazine’s Rising Stars. A tragedy :( twitter.com/thr/status/145…

My heart goes out to that young Armorer, the entire Cast and Crew of ‘Rush’. Especially thinking of those that are traumatized by the accident, injured, and particularly to the family of Director of Photography Halyna Hutchins.
Recalling when the Armorer on set demonstrated that a gun had been cleared safe. He pointed it to the ground, pulled the trigger & it fired a projectile 2 our collective surprise. No one was hurt! But, I wonder how much of that accident occurred bcuz: tired, over worked & rushed?
What a lion’s heart. I can’t wait to watch this documentary. twitter.com/reuters/status…
Grr. No* time. Or, anytime* but not as written, “no anytime.” 😑 Stay w me. 😂
The demand,”We’re moving quickly so submit tomorrow” is truly not helpful 2 the process 4 any1. This gives an actor no anytime w the material. We need 2break dwn the material 2find “moments” then memorize copious pages. B4, ok to take ur sides into the rm. Now, not so much.
Behold the splendor of the California coast at sunset. Just, Wow.
Let’s discuss equipment. C-stands, a backdrop, sand bags, clamps, multiple lights, computer stand, camera stand e.g. iPhone to record…while on zoom with coach. - need a computer 4 that 2. Easily a few hundred dollars not including the devices. This is our craft. So we do it
What happens when actors who are starting out can’t pay? Or just actors who can’t afford to pay a reader? -The audition quality suffers and is apparent. this hurts the chances of an actor seeking work. An economic disparity should not play a part in the casting process.
Let’s discuss finding a “reader”. It would be great if all had friends available to “read” w you but it’s not realistic for all to have a relatable person for every audition. Hence the importance of in person casting. I have the “privilege” to pay a coach to read with me.
The unpaid labor that actors do to prepare scenes 4 a job is rarely discussed here. Post covid, the audition labor + expense threshold has 10 folded. No longer just memorizing multiple scenes, (usually 3 +be off book, cuz it’s better) but now: light, edit,& sound-mix too. twitter.com/reginakimwrite…
Love, A “difficult” woman.
Such an action packed fun weekend in Las Vegas celebrating my step Mom’s Birthday. We took in a FB Game, gambled, danced, zip lined Fremont Street (recommend!) had dinner w friends. Thx @JeffNovitzkyUFC for hosting! cc: @ChrisProvino & lastly, so much fun making friends w Kosta.
I met her at the Apple store and we became fast friends. To know @jenziebenzie means you know thoughtfulness, fun, group outings, game nights, travel shenanigans and her love of her partner and future wife, Bailey. Congratulations to you on your wedding day, friend. Love U both!

“Looking back on that day in Provence, my panic wasn't a choice, and it wasn't a mental weakness. It was something I felt ashamed about, but in retrospect, that only made it worse.” Thanks @clarkgregg for helping eliminate the stigma of mental health for men. twitter.com/ClarkGreggU/st…

But, what it does suggest is, “You are not welcome here.” “ Stay in your lane.” And those in power are intent to keep it. Which, if you’re like me, you believe the opposite. Sharing your resources, experience, then passing it on is truly what it means to be a decent human.
To be clear, this isn’t a complaint in the sense of, “Poor me”. Overcoming obstacles in film in TV is a prerequisite. If a comment like that prevented me from directing, I would not be cut-out for the kinds of obstacles Directors face and must pivot from on the daily.
Asked a male TV Dir. I knew well if I could shadow him on set, I was interested in directing. His response was, “Oh great, now I have to compete w YOU for a job?!” He was not kidding. I’m considered “above the line”so I can only imagine “below the line” attempting to break-in.
Catch up on all the drama in Seasons 1 & 2 and then stream Season 3 on October 17. Plans start at $9.99/month.

Why is water a cause of concern for all? If you care about education, If u care about women, if you care about food insecurity …all these things go back to providing safe clean drinking water. If U want Ur children 2care about the world we live in, care about @legacyyouthlead twitter.com/allcharisma/st…
The average distance that someone in a developing community walks to fetch water is 3.75 miles All FAQs sourced from the UN.
The task of collecting H2O tends 2 fall on women+children between the ages of 8 & 13. So women R often unable 2get jobs or contribute financially 2their households. Kids R often unable 2go2 school or get an education due2 the 1k+ Hrs they have 2spend annually just hauling H2O
Please consider donating to this incredible cause. •785 million people on our planet lack access to safe, clean drinking water! •Every 21 seconds a young death could be prevented w access to safe, clean water •When U fill a 5-gallon jerrycan with water, it weighs 44 pounds. twitter.com/allcharisma/st…
@thirst is my H2o charity of choice founded by @Sethmaxwell1 who was in his 20’s @ the time then blossomed into quite the change agent in the world of safe clean drinking H2o 4 all. TONIGHT is the Gala as well as the inaugural @legacyyouthlead @ 5:30 PST linktr.ee/thirst_project

As the co-chair of the @WGAWest Inclusion & Equity Group, I know marginalized writers are hired for authenticity passes on feature scripts but receive no credit. The proposed new end credit is a big step toward ending systematized discrimination on the part of the Guild itself.

Ted Lasso splits my heart then puts it back together again. It’s messy and painful and joyous and a reminder that life’s not meant to be tidy. It’s meant to be lived. But at the end of the day, we all want to feel like we matter and that someone BELIEVES in us even when we don’t.

It’s not even 8am and I have not had my coffee yet. Why am I like this?
This RT is not an endorsement of Amazon Go. It actually freaks me out. As we become more dependent on AI, autonomous driving, & tech in general I foresee future job losses for Americans. Can we, as people, keep up with the shift in market. Is there time to upgrade education?
