Tonight's the Night!

Today is a big day for us here at Meet Jane Doe! Not only are we having a big party at Dante's in downtown Portland (3rd & Burnside) to unveil footage of Ruby & The Homewreckers, but we also get to promote the event live on KOIN 6 News! Tune in between 4-5 pm during their studio 6 program - we should be on in the second half of the show.

And then come by Dante's at 8 pm tonight for the party! We will have a DJ, 2 live bands, 2 showings of the video (at 8:45 and 10:45) and a live performance by Ruby & The Homewreckers themselves after the second showing of the video. There will be a $5 cover charge for the event to cover expenses and to put in the "we need to pay our cast and crew" fund. It will be money well spent!

Can't wait to see you all there!

Extras Call for 7/27!

Six weeks of dance rehearsals. Hundreds and hundreds of dollars in costuming, original music and choreography. A RED camera. An ideal location. Gorgeous women dancing on stage. We should be charging people to come watch! But instead we are offering crafty and a $25 stipend. We need about 40 extras to come and be a part of this amazing experience - mostly men, but we could use a few females as well. We have two calls - one from 2:30 to 5 am, the second from 5:30 to 10 am. Preference will be given to those that are flexible and could attend either. Please email if you are interested and available:

Meet Make-Up Artist Kim Donohue!

I met Kim Donohue on the set of Population 2 and we hit it off immediately. Kim splits her time between LA and Portland and is amazingly supportive of our blossoming indie film scene here. She has extensive experience as a Make-Up Artist on big studio features, network television show, national print magazines, and has an impressive list of celebrity clientele. Just take a peak at her IMDb page and you will see why I was so excited when she agreed to join us on our adventure. Welcome Kim!

Let the Media Frenzy Begin!

Ok, so it's not quite a frenzy yet, but it's a start! Yesterday morning I had the pleasure of sitting down with Steve Lindsley of KEX radio. He is doing a story on film finance and wanted to speak with someone who is currently in the throws of raising money to make a movie. Needless to say I was flattered that he thought of me, and gladly accepted! My hopes is that this will be the first of many interviews (Steve and I are already talking about the next one, and hopefully some face time on TV will be in my near future!) that will bring attention to our project and inspire people to contribute to our fundraising efforts.

I don't have exact times as to when the news story on "Meet Jane Doe" will air, but here is what Steve told me: " should begin after 9 a.m. today (5/27/2010), and will run during Friday's morning drive. KEX has news at the top and bottom of each hour. I can't tell you exactly when it will run. We also have a story , photo and link at our website, The longer version of the story will run, Sunday. I'll let you know the times of the Sunday Magazine Show when I get it all done."

Tune in today, tomorrow, and Sunday and hopefully you will catch it. I am sitting at my desk with earphones on as I type this!

Meet the Homewreckers!

Meet Gina (Sibyl Lazzara). She is the group's manager and pretty much runs the show. That is, as much as Ruby will allow her too. Gina is the group's choreographer and musical advisor, as well as a dancer who has been with the group since the beginning. She knows she needs to tiptoe around Ruby - and she keeps the other girls in line. But when push comes to shove, will Gina be the one who sells her out?

Meet Jenny (Michelle Damis). She spent the majority of her adult life working as a dancer at a local strip club trying to put food on the table as a single mother. That is until she was discovered by Gina, and allowed into The Homewreckers family by Ruby. As part of the hottest ticket in town, Jenny has left her stripper days behind her. Or so she thinks...

Meet Sarah (Meredith Adelaide). Off stage she is sweet and shy - unassuming. Yet when she steps foot on stage she is transformed into a shining member of The Homewreckers. Sarah is the least likely to stand up to Ruby - grateful for the opportunity given her, she puts up with the abuse and accepts the fact that Ruby will never thank her for a job well done.

Meet Emily (Rachel Klein). She loves her job - the dancing, the costumes, the attention. And she is willing to go to any extremes to protect it. Emily knows she has a good thing going, and wants to keep it that way. Emily is the most recent addition to The Homewreckers, and has no beef with Ruby. As long as she is getting to perform on stage to a packed crowd, she's happy.

Let the Fundraising Begin!

Last night we hosted our fundraising kick-off party at Grand Central Bowling and had an amazing turnout with some fabulous folks in attendance, and I was overwhelmed with the response to the teaser trailer. Lots of positive comments and feedback. We raised over $3,300 last night - got a call from an unexpected source this morning, pledging the bulk of that amount. I cried. I am truly blessed. Yes, I have worked hard to get to this point, but it has been a true labor of love!

I just hit the "Launch" button on our Kickstarter page. View the teaser trailer in the comfort of your own home and make sure you watch the cast and crew interviews! Hear what people that are close to the project have to say about it - it's pretty cool:
