I know I haven't updated this page a lot or posted new photos in a while here or to twitter - there will be some updates during the next week. Got some nice photos from the film festival... and there will also soon be a separate page for "The Art of the Chase" movie.

This is a place holder "introduction" post to mention that Rachel Kadushin, Gisele Haralson , Tamie Collins Markee (Tammy Collins Markee), and Eugene Mikle are teaming up with others to try to help residents in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana area. The proposal from one of our friends and partners is to create a "Baton Rouge Relief Fund."

We are still in the very early stages of planning, but want to do something right now. The replies to this post will be "resources" and "services" doing things right now in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana area, which includes several parishes and small incorporated towns and cities.

We are going to be reaching out to groups and pages on facebook and ask you to "like" Best Friends Productions for updates or to participate in planning or taking steps.

One example - which does not have a page on facebook at this time - is Gisele Haralson's "Celebration of Women" #CelebrationofWomen Event which debuted in March 2016 and donated to the Baton Rouge Food Bank and St. Judes Children's Hospital from their proceeds. There will be a 2nd Annual event in March 2017.

Here's the team from production and operations at Gisele Haralson's "Celebration of Women" Event.

We also shot some 2nd Unit and a cameo performance for the "Gisele Haralson's The Art of the Chase" Movie - we hope to do the bulk of the principal photography this fall 2016 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana - and we might spend a few days up in Lake Charles, Louisiana and New Orleans, Louisiana this Fall or Winter shooting some scenes.

We're only interviewing now, not making formal hires or auditions, as we do not have all of the financing in place at this time.
