Let Your Lovelight Shine

as All Hallow’s Eve approaches…one prepares for a haunting season
Gearing up to see Georgia’s The Black Crowes on Halloween here in New York City…a dream I’ve had for a while now!  It’s going to be a rockin’ good time, with celebrations to be made.

Curing Eve, a short film about Zoe Martin (Satu Makeda), a certified herbalist who might have cured her sister’s (played by Lisa Rosenberg) cancer, is wrapping production this weekend with a climactic chase scene.  Curing Eve, written and directed by Rosemary Sanchez, is filming on location in the Pokonos, Pennsylvania.  It’s been an amazing ride, and I can’t wait to top it off with a wicked chase scene in the forest.

On Thursday, October 28, 2010 the second half of an article written by Jackie Apodaca featuring yours truly with be distributed by Backstage Magazine.  Link to be posted tomorrow.  Finally get to see what readers think about my name change!  Just out of curiosity.  This is it baby, my name.

And finally…my new web series is about to give birth.  Pre-production under way, and production set to begin November 6th with a stellar cast full of goofballs assuredly making this sketch comedy a hit.  I can’t wait to post the first skit, entitled “Peter Gabriel Contest Winners.”  You’re going to love this.

As always, party safely and enjoy yourself this Happy Halloween!!  I know I will.

Stay Bootiful!

Things are picking up steam, baby.

Fair Game (featuring yours truly in a scene with Sean Penn)  is opening in select cinemas Friday November 5th, 2010.  Naomi Watts has been a lean mean promoting machine across the country giving talks with the real Valerie Plame drumming up political intrigue and not to mention Oscar buzz for the film and cast.  I’ve been racking my brain coming up with a decent top ten Oscar film list this year, and so far only a handful make the grade.  I have high hopes for Fair Game, and I will be attending a screening on Monday!  This will be the first time seeing myself on the big screen in a long time.  I’ve come a long way.

This weekend I will be heading upstate to act in a Marival Productions/Red Rogue Media short film, “Curing Eve.”  I play an herbalist that may or may not have cured her sister’s fatal illness, but  I can’t say much more than that.  I’ve been dying to sink my teeth into a complex and interesting role, and here it is!  Very excited to be working with Rose Sanchez (director) and Lisa Rosenberg (Eve) for the second time.  It’s like family, and that’s how you make a great picture.

Other than a recent audition splurge for Othello, a new Rijav Joseph play (amazing playwright!), and revived Theresa Rebeck play (another favorite playwright), I have been writing the first few episodes of my brand new untitled sketch comedy web series.  It’s got a definite “Kids in the Hall” vibe (paying homage to the greats).  So far a great number of all star players have signed on to act and we are deep in pre-production glory.  First episode, “Peter Gabriel Contest Winners” will be webcast 11/11/ 2010.

Stay Tuned, Fanboys!

Your pal,
Satu Makeda
