Divine Marigolds Goes to Hollywood

 

(Editor:  Notice the green shirt.)

“Bobby Cory (a masterful pitcher) and I just pitched 11 companies on The Divine Marigolds and 8 reality tv shows (under the auspices of Evergolden Entertainment). The last company we pitched, CAA had a very positive response to Marigolds. Regardless of the outcome, I want to thank all of you who have supported this amazing journey. I could NOT have done this without your support. Mad love people, mad love. — at Roosevelt Poolside.”  – Will Phillips

CROWD FUNDING

The local Seattle film industry keeps moving, and so do the people in it.  The Seattle Celebrity News! just recently learned that Allison Eckert, profiled here in November, 2010 ( https://schn00dles.wordpress.com/2010/11/27/seattle-celebrity-news-11/ ) is soon due to attend the prestigious American Film Institute located  on eight acres in the hills overlooking Hollywood!  (in LA, CA. naturally)  She’s already been Assistant Director on many films, and Directed some.   (see Jana, shot  in Prague: http://vimeo.com/31803245)   She likes the Director’s chair and wants more of the kind of ‘inside learning’ you need to support her ambitions.  The American Film Institute is very selective, and well placed.  But they also charge tuition.  You want to see better films?  Help to group fund a Director, and then have the joy of personally following her career!  Get in on the ground floor now – and you could be attending A-list parties later…  kicking back by the pool and listening to starlets ask you how it is that you ‘know her‘?

Well.  This is how.  Go to:  http://www.youcaring.com/fundraiser_details?fundraiser_id=1571&url=allisongoestogradschool   Send her a few bucks…  And then pack ur swimming suit, sun-tan lotion, and collection of those little drink umbrellas!

Fashion with Chris

The Beautiful Kara Thorne

Editor’s note:  The pull of Hollywood and the faaaasst! lane has its talons into Chris.  Plus, judging by this newest trailer, the chemistry with the beautiful Kara Thorne would turn anyone’s head into a swivel chair.  Somebody tie this guy to the mast before we lose him for good!

Will Chris Drop Fashion for a Hollywood Career?

Editor’s Note:  We’ve had a lot of requests for Chris’ fall line-up.  I’m afraid Hollywood has had its feelers out also.  Here’s a short trailer of Chris’ upcoming movie, Chocolate Holics. 

Chocolate Holics

However, the Seattle Celebrity News! is in negotiations with Chris’ Hollywood agent.  And we’re hopeful we can resume shooting Chris’ Fall AND Christmas fashion line-up as soon as some contractural complications are resolved.  In the meanwhile, enjoy Chris Mathews in his first romantic lead with the lovely actress, Kara Thorne!
