Colleen's thoughts on writing, directing and coaching, and her unique take on life itself!

Cameras roll -- tomorrow!

Kristina Lilley has arrived from Bogota, Colombia. Her fans world wide will be surprised to see her play a cop in our comedy feature -- she's an award-winning actress in Spanish speaking nations known worldwide for her villainy and sexpotness (are those really words?) characters. She speaks both English and Spanish without an accent.

I coached her for two years while she lived in Seattle with her family, when she was taken away from her work outside the US. She auditioned and won the role fairly.

I am resting today. It's going to take every ounce of energy I have to make it through the next six weeks directing THE WHOLE TRUTH, so I want to store up as much energy as I can, after working so hard on preproduction over the past several months.

Everyone's up, excited and ready to go.

When we've finished THE WHOLE TRUTH, releasing it to the world, we're starting prepro for our next comedy feature, THE LONELY GOATHERD.

As wonderful as it is to have this get underway - producing and directing the first feature I've written - the best part is being surrounded with so many incredibly talented, skilled and dedicated artists -- crew and talent alike. I'm in heaven!

For THE WHOLE TRUTH website, as we have time, we're adding photos and information about all our actors and crew members. Crew folks are so vital to the creation of a good film, my partner Gary Allen Tucci and me believe they should get their own "face time." They deserve it.

Just like extras actors deserve to eat with everyone else, and what we eat. "Normally," extras don't get the same treatment or meals that the stars and crew enjoy. We don't roll that way.

Back to resting!
