Parfection!

Hey Friends!


Greetings from the set of Parfection, the new project I'm working in with Dean Cameron, Steve Talley, and Dean Cain and directed by Drew Ann Rosenberg.

Here are a couple of shots from the set:




Not a bad office to clock into work at, no?


And this is our ride on the course.


The scariest part for me was trying to learn how to LOOK like I knew how to play golf. I ended up sinking about 8 out of 10 consecutive putts this morning while the cameras were rolling. I was starting to convince myself!Making a comedy is so much fun. Hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!


Hope this finds you all doing excellent! Thanks so much for your patience!

Take care of each other!


All Things Possible!

    Not a bad "office" at all - and the ride looks pretty sweet, too! Sounds like a great cast, I presume that the four of you are a golf foursome. Here's hoping that "Parfection" is the next "Caddyshack" which as most people know is one of the greatest, and irrevrent, golf movies every made (I'm alright...no one worry about me...).

    By the way, I can't help but notice you are working with another former super actor - must be something that draws all you heroic types together!

    Yes, I think of George as a super hero, though obviously not a serious one!

    Thanks for the update on your current work!

    Hey Dave!

    Thanks for the note. Actually Dean Cameron plays my partner both on the golf course and in our plastic surgery practice. It has been really awesome working with him as our characters think with the same brain so we operate like we are one person.

    Dean Cain plays a red-neck Repo man. Not a role you'd expect him in, but he's wildly funny in it!

    ATP!

    Hey Chris,
    You are right, I wouldn't think of Dean Cain as a red-neck, Repo man. But, that's what acting is all about, right? The entire film sounds like a fun time.

    Weather discussion...Hi, forum family...I got a little jolt this morning at my desktop weather alert about first significant snow in the Rockies. It's been very cold here...if it keeps up, the golfers will have to haul in their bags for the winter. Thought of that because of Chris' photos and news of the great new comedy he's in, and also my son loves to golf with his friends and work colleagues. There have been really warm autumns here, where the golfers were in golf heaven....playing until Christmas almost. This week, I wonder what winter will be like.. Hope you're all keeping warm in spirit wherever you are. Looking forward to seeing this movie. In these economic times, we need more laughter in our lives. They say laughter heals. So I know we're all waiting for a "barrel of laughs" to lift our spirits with this new film project!

    Hope everyone is well, and hope to hear some updates. My Clayton walk adventure is done for this year, but now begins the planning to make next year even better. Stay tuned!

    Since no one is posting at the moment, here's a quote I saw the other day...good one to chew on:

    "At some point in our evolution (spiritual, moral, financial, etc.), we must become more responsible, conscious, directed Hu-man beings. We must consciously take direction and control of our lives.

    "We must consciously watch what we put in our mouths. We must consciously monitor the words that come out of our mouths.

    "We must consciously watch what we think about and the energy that we put into our thoughts. We must consciously watch the things that we allow to cycle and recycle through our minds." - John-Roger

    Think of some ATB/P thoughts! Sue

    Thanks for the note Sue. I'm glad to hear that Clayton has completed his walk. He's a powerhouse!

    I like your thoughs too on laughter as the best medicine. I couldn't agree more. We wrapped principal photography on Parfection on Saturday and I must say that all of the laughs were very theraputic. Thanks to all my Parfection pals cast & crew.

    Take care of each other!

    All Things Possible,
    Chris

    Hi All
    If you want to see a true comedy, watch me play golf. I am by far the worlds most golf challenged individual and make a true mockery of the sport. I guess I have played too much baseball/softball in my life as I can not help swinging a golf club anyway but like a bat. Chris, hats off to you for at least sinking the putts. Those would have to be open manholes for me to come close! Wouldn't mind the yellow golf cart. I could probably drive that.

    Tim

    Hi everyone...
    Chris, thanks for the Clayton note. Yes, he is a Powerhouse. I think it's in the family tree. Lots to do for next year's walk to keep people updated. It's been a wonderful learning experience. And a joy to work with such an inspiring "outside the box" thinking person.

    Dave-- How's the theatre season going for you? I've been enjoying the new professional theatre company in Williamston...imagine...can't believe I've attended three productions this summer and fall. Currently on is Leaving Iowa. Just love it and plan to see it again.

    Tim, I loved your golf notes. What is it about golf? I'm golf-challenged, too. Tried it some, as my in-laws played. My husband enjoys it some, but feels challenged, as well. His dad, though, still plays at age 91. My youngest brother, also a baseball person, has been working at enjoying golf for several years now. He still complains. Our son loves it, as I mentioned, and it's been good for him as a way to keep in touch with old school friends, as well as play on his work league. Golf is the ultimate game for teaching patience, I have a feeling.

    Hope you are enjoying this brilliantly spectacular weather this weekend. Great for dog events! And enjoy we must while it lasts! Leaves are turning...and.....

    Jaschencka, isn't it nearly time for "swirly woosh woosh?"

    Here's another quote I saw today that seems to fit into this volatile election season.
    "Loving people live in a loving world. Hostile people live in a hostile world. Same world." -- Wayne Dyer

    Which brings me to my forum family wish: ATP Weekend and don't forget "Sweetest Day" is coming up for the next one! Sue

    My it's been quiet here for the past week or so...

    Sue, my theatre season is going well. I was pleased with my performance in "Doubt" and I just enjoyed a pleasant performance of "Harvey" by my home group. One of my high school friends played the lead (Elwood P. Dowd) and he did a terrific job - as usual. This performance we special as it kicked off our 60th year of continuous activity. More information is at www.monroecommunityplayers.org for those so inclined to check it out (hope it's okay to put in a little plug here!).

    Tim - I'll have to challenge your self-proclaimed title as the world's most challenged golf player. Of course I did once shoot only 48 strokes - but then I moved on to the next hole (lol)!

    The weather continues to be spectacular for Fall - leaves have turned and the air has just the right amount of "nip" in it for this time of year!

    Oh, Jaschencka, you are going to have to refresh my memory "swirly woosh woosh?"

    ATP everyone!

    Dave

    Hi Dave,
    Quiet, yes. Must be good things are happening to very busy people.
    Thanks for the note about your theatre season. Found the website.
    Are there photos anywhere else of your productions? Thanks for posting,I was hoping all was going well with them. Tell us more about "Doubt"
    If you have time. My husband is going with me to see Leaving Iowa now, so
    I'm hoping he will enjoy. Can't say when I've ever been to a theatre production twice.
    You might say I'm getting hooked. Hope you'll keep us updated. That has to be rewarding and fun to be involved in your local theatre community.

    I'm passing along a film note, about a sequel to the Zeitgeist movie Chris told us about previously. Zeitgeist Addendum.
    With a link to the website of the movie What the Bleep (e-news) which reviews that sequel and has a link to the movie site.
    The Bleep site also hosts Lynne McTaggart and has an article about the preliminary results of the intention experiment I posted about awhile back.

    Hope all is well with everyone on this finally Sweetest Day ( was a little ahead last time) but may I be a little ahead with Halloween greetings as well! May all your holidays be ATB/P/Delightful! Sue

    Hi everyone!

    Thanks for sharing these photos, Chris. I am sure you managed to pull it off, after all, your an actor par excellence! :)

    Thanks, Sue and Dave for keeping the forum alive, when we others are too busy to post!

    For those movie buffs out there, you might enjoy Robert Davi's new movie "The Dukes" which comes out Nov. 14 in the USA and is also the directing debut of Robert Davi. If you want to know more, check out http://www.thedukes-movie.com.

    Yesterday we saw "Hellboy II", which was fun. We also got to see the teaser of "Mirrors", which is really scary - I had goosebumps from head to toe just watching the teaser!!!

    Hope you are all well! I caught a cold bug the other week, but fortunately I am well again.

    Big hugs to you all,

    Ute

    Thanks Ute for the heads up on the Davi movie The Dukes. Also, thanks Susan for the link to the What The Bleep site. I've actually been thinking about Zeitgeist the movie a lot lately watching their financial predictions slowly coming true in the global market place.

    Thanks Dave and Tim for the encouraging thoughts on the crazy game of golf. We'll all have to get together and form a bad golfer support group!

    As you may have noticed, I have been gone for the past week. Natasha and I just got back from a trip to Costa Rica. Keep an eye out for my next post about our adventures.

    As the evening temperatures in the upper mid west fall like the stock market, Chris brings up Costa Rica. Perfect timing! I hope you had a great time.

    Hello everyone....it's interesting Tim put that up about the film clip. I'll try to see if it comes through. Meanwhile, a week or so ago I'd heard about John Katz' new book -- Izzy and Lenore: Two Dogs, an Unexpected Journey, and Me . I'd never read any of his books, but when I heard the story on the radio, I immediately thought of Tim and meant to post about this book when it fit in sometime in the conversation. Amazingly, I think it goes along with his most recent post. Izzy and Lenore are Hospice dogs. Katz says that dogs appear in your life when you need them. Working with the dogs not only helped Katz through severe emotional crisis, but also, through his relationship with them, they were of service to many who've been in the Hopsice experience. The story was so moving, I know I have to get this book, for myself and for a gift, especially for my daughter and son-in-law, who've been "parents" to two beloved dogs since they were married 13 years ago. The Amazon website has wonderful commentaries about the book -- about soul searching and journeys of the heart. Thanks for including us in the work you do with dogs, Tim, and reminding us of these very important spirits in our lives. -- Sue

    Thanks for that info Sue. And I wanted to let everyone else know about a book that Sue brought to my attention. It is called "Conscious Creation" written by my friend Dee Wallace. I met Dee when she volunteered her time to help make the teaser to the project "Between the Sand & Sky". She is a truly inspirational, caring, and wonderful person.

    Here is a link to her new book: http://www.iuniverse.com/Bookstore/BookDetail.aspx?Book=122644

    and an excerpt from her teleseminar on Youtube (Marginal sound quality, but interesting!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLWIbfzCang

    Thanks for the heads up, Sue!

    All Things Possible,
    Chris

    Thanks for the comments about the book, Chris. Sending ATP wishes for your project. And since the forum is still a little bit quiet this Halloween week, and we still haven't heard, hope all is well with our swirly woosh-woosh friend...meanwhile, here's wishing everyone All Things "Boo-tiful"!! Sue
