February 2015

On October 24th, 2014 my husband Woody Pittman passed away after a long struggle with cancer. He died peacefully in his sleep here at home and I'm happy that I was able to take off work and spend the last month of his life with him. We had a wonderful hospice team and I am grateful for all their support. I'm now back to work full time and I find a lot of comfort in performing. Woody was an amazing performer who taught me a lot about showmanship and I know he is proud of me.

I'm updating this site again so you can see where I'm playing but I think for this month's Newsletter I'll just share a few of the things that Woody and I did together.

Shuffleboard King

This is the first film we made while on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. I've thought about replacing the music with something original, but Leroy Anderson's "Bugler's Holiday" just seems to work so well. I especially enjoyed creating and editing together the 'trick shots'.

Blood Day

Originally I used another famous recording for the soundtrack to this short. But at the time I was also experimenting with a multi-track recording device. Having already edited the film together, I reinterpreted the original music, playing all the instruments and using my multi-track. I think most jazz fans will be able to guess what the original recording was when they hear my twist on it!

Sock Monkey

Los Angeles Union Station was a beautiful place to shoot. We got there really early in the morning and finished the film before the commuters arrived. I had just made this sock monkey from a craft kit and named him "Tofu". –Seemed like a pretty good excuse to make a film!

Christmas

This film uses a new Christmas song that I wrote and recorded with Clint Baker. I wanted to send out a little video Christmas card for the holidays and this gave us an excuse to decorate early!
