That's right, my GTTP peeps, episode 12 of Comfort Measures is up! Join Jessica as she tackles her first (but far from her last) science fiction comfort media - the premiere episode of the (criminally cancelled too soon - GRRRR Sci-Fi Channel) television series, FARSCAPE. Cue it up on Amazon Prime and jump in to the discussion of a broken DRD, a Helium-farting Hinerian, the luminous Claudia Black, and a pair of action-figure wedding cake toppers...

Episode 11 of Comfort Measures, featuring the book, FAKING IT by Jennifer Crusie is up:

http://traffic.libsyn.com/comfortmeasurespodcast/CM_11_-_Faking_It_-_MASTER.mp3

And for those of you wondering exactly what the Durer Saint Anne painting looks like, here you go.

Personally, I think Ms. Crusie nailed when she described it: "It was of a woman with protruding eyes hovering over a well-fed mother and her disturbing-looking baby."
Yup!

So, pick up a copy for a re-read http://jennycrusie.com/fiction/faking-it/ and get ready for a discussion of closet meet-cutes and familial relations, asthmatic artists and multiple personalities, possible hit-men and definite con-men, and the comparative benefits of Muffins vs. Doughnuts.

See you on Sunday!

Just When I Thought I Had Stopped Worrying About My Place in the World...

Yes yes yes! Early in my career, long before there was a GTTP, I did a bunch of shows without any designers (not by choice but because of lack of funds and lack of connections) - lights on/lights off, a cd on a cd player, set pieces from my living room, costumes from the actors closets, and no projections at all...and, don't get me wrong, we made it work, but having other artists - specifically designers - to collaborate with, to help shape the vision, to create the world with together? I mean, seriously! That is what it's all about! There is nothing quite so rewarding as putting your head together with your designers and finding the show - in whatever medium - TOGETHER. With each person bringing their talent, experience, and skill to the project. And I thank the universe for the talented artists I have had (and continue to have) the opportunity to collaborate with. Without them? ...well honestly, I can't imagine my work without them.

"I believe that the highest calling of theater is to create connections – living, vital, breathing connections, between the audience and the production." - Rob Kaplowitz

I am a sound designer for theater. This means that, when someone who doesn’t work in my industry asks me what I do for a living, it takes four sentences just to establish the basics. This is not a ...

One Year Later: 10 Pieces of Advice to Consider When Filming a Television Pilot

New Blog Post from GTTP Founder, Jessica Ammirati about Farm Story...one year later...

For the better part of this past anniversary week of filming Farm Story I've been thinking about the shoot and I've been trying to think of something profound and moving to say about the experience. Although right after the shoot itself I said some stuff (which you can find here and here ), now it's…

Mary Doria Russell is an extraordinary author who writes books filled with beauty, heart, power, soul, thought-provoking ideas, and true grace. She is also a kind and generous soul. If you've never read her books: The Sparrow, Children of God, Thread of Grace, Dreamers of the Day, Doc, and Epitaph, you're missing out. (Run, don't walk, to your nearest (preferably local) bookstore and pick them up.)

A year ago Ms. Russell allowed the Farm Story team use of the image of The Sparrow in filming (seeing as it's one of our main character, Sam's, favorite books, it just seemed perfect that she would be reading it on her way to work). I just wanted to say here, THANKS YOU, Mary!!! As if that wasn't enough, yesterday, she was kind enough to give the Farm Story page a l'il shout out: "Jessica Ammirati did an off-Broadway adaptation of Dreamers of the Day a few years ago. Now she's shopping a TV series called Farm Story, about a young couple that leaves NYC for Virginia. Watch for what young woman is reading on the subway, 52 seconds into the Full Trailer:"

Female Stars Unite in Powerful Video on the Plight of Men in Showbiz

Big doings at GTTP meaning we haven't had a chance to post in awhile, but this was too good (and too important) not to share: http://jezebel.com/female-stars-unite-in-powerful-video-on-the-plight-of-m-1699222431
It's a problem y'all!

Did you know that only 93 percent of films released by major studios last year were directed by men? And that only 70 percent of speaking roles in films are given to men? It’s a real tragedy, and finally, women are banding together to do something about it. This is powerful stuff.
