Like most civic-minded people, I haven’t left my house in weeks. Occasional forays to the supermarket, to pick up bottles of water and to fetch locally-owned restaurant carry-out, are handled by my wonderful, and much younger husband, Donny. His immune system is in much better shape than mine. As a result, he’s become my Knight…… Continue reading Weathering The Storm

Because I’m something of a history buff when it comes to Southern New Mexico, as well as an advocate for filmmaking in the area, I often stumble upon fascinating tidbits of information that combine the two interests. One of the perks of my profession, which often finds me sitting in…
A year ago, the boys and I at PRC Productions came up with a fun little project to celebrate the season. And it didn’t involve toilet paper or shaving cream!* Things were a lot less hectic at the office, then. This year we’ve produced two feature length films – Lady Belladonna’s Tales From The Inferno…… Continue reading Murder, Mayhem and Movies
Trepidation. It’s a funny little word, because it sounds just like what it is. To experience trepidation, one must be very agitated and a little fearful of what may happen. Anybody who has spent any time at all on the stage knows this feeling. We call it flop sweat. Check, check and check. I am…… Continue reading High Anxiety
Whoa, what a week. The Borderlands Film Festival is now just a memory. Oh, but what a memory! Well, what I can remember of it… To be completely honest, some of it is just a blur. And, because I was in charge of Guest Services at the host hotel, I didn’t get the opportunity to…… Continue reading The Sturm and Drang of Filmmaking

Our opening night film is queued up, along with 80-something other films, spread out over six days of independent film, workshops, seminars, ceremonies and parties. Tickets are on…… Continue reading The Spirit Of Independents
During one of my recent trips to the Land of Scorch, my lovely polymate Deb took me to one of my favorite bookstores in the Valley of the Blistering Orb: Bookman’s Book & Record Exchange. There I perused the stacks and shelves awhile, before finally ambling over to my favorite guilty pleasure: a single wire…… Continue reading Erotic Fantasies, Cinematic Dreams
Okay, let’s just address the pink rhinoceros in the room right off the bat. No sugar coating, here. The biopsy was brutal and the pathology results were alarming to everybody, including the doctors at the Mayo Clinic. Apparently this particular gut goblin is very aggressive. It hasn’t yet metastasized, but it has tipped me right…… Continue reading How To Make The Best Of Monkey Feces In Your Hair
By the time you read this, we will either be on our last day of shooting, or completely wrapped. The sequel to Lady Belladonna’s Night Shades will be in the can. Soon, the wizards at PRC will begin editing and adding the effects necessary to make it pop and sizzle. With luck, we’ll have a…… Continue reading Roll Cameras!
And just like that, we’re in pre-production on a sequel to the anthology produced by PRC Productions back in August of 2016. Lady Belladonna’s Night Shades wasn’t a blockbuster by any means. It’s even debatable whether or not it could be considered a “hit.” The anthology has a permanent roost on Amazon Prime, where the…… Continue reading She’s Baaaaaaaack!
