Filming the music video for Cimorelli's Good Time cover was a blast! Here is a peek at behind the scenes! Special thanks to Teresa Lappert for putting this video together! You can check out more of her work here: teresalappertphotography.com
Everyone was trying to save time on the set for Cimorelli's next music video. Amy found she could save herself hours if, rather than reading, she absorbed the entire content of her book through the top of her head. I wish I had thought of that freshman year!
Idle time for Katherine?
Not when there is a piano lying around!
Recently, I went out and purchased six cans of silly string and six water guns. This was the beginning of an awesome weekend. The Cimorelli family has been friends with my family for a very long time. Since they were into music, and I was into videos, we decided it would be best to join forces and make AN EPIC MUSIC VIDEO!!!!!!
Christina, Katherine, and Lisa prepare for their big scene.
They have interesting ways of preparing...
Awww, look how sweet and innocent!
Or is she? I guess you'll have to watch the video to find out.
Recently we began a fundraising campaign with HIS Coffee Co for the continuation of Cyril B. Jones. Unfortunately, it seems the tasty caffeinated power of HIS Coffee has fallen into the wrong hands.
Last week, I mailed the coffee to our supporters and just today I found this message from my evil sister Marzo on my Face Book wall. I quote: "Dude that coffee is soooooo goood. MWAHAHAHAHahee hee HaHAhA HAhAHAa"
This is truly my fault. Had I been wise, had I been vigilant, this coffee would never have fallen into her hands! You can't just give coffee that caffeinated to anyone! My dear readers, this may be the last time you hear from me, indeed this could be the very end of our existence. You all have been excellent. If you do not hear from me again, assume that Marzo has destroyed me in a fit of caffeinated madness. Lord help us all.
And the award for the most outlandish theory about the identity of the mysterious thing, goes to dearly departed for his theory that the tower was a shelter during the great mole rat attack.
That was indeed, one of the most ridiculous things I have ever read.
This just in from the Merchantville historical society: "The booth was used to direct traffic prior to traffic lights. I have not come across when it was built. Pictures taken at the time of the 50th Anniversary of Merchantville, 1924, clearly show its presence in front of the then Borough Hall."
There you have it! The truth about the mysterious thing! Remember I'll still except outlandish theories until New Years Eve. Then I will declare the winner!
A few weeks ago, I launched a contest asking the public to identify the mysterious tower on the corner of Maple and Center Street.
Since then , I have heard some truly marvelous theories. However, after an inquiry at town hall I was told it used to be a police tower but now is merely a decoration. I am going to confirm this theory with the Merchantville historical society and try to find some more information on the origin of the thing.
In the meantime, I'll continue to except outlandish theories until new years eve! Remember the theory I like the best will be awarded a Giant Chipmunk Productions mug!
Watching Episode One of Cyril B. Jones has really made me think. The show raises important questions. The most important of which is: What is Methusela?
It is clearly an animal small enough to fit in the carrier Claire returns to Aaron but judging from the sounds it makes it must be a man eater. I owned many pocket pets as a child and from my experience I am going to have to guess the most evil animal I ever had the misfortune of running across -- the Siberian hamster.
Perhaps the answer will be revealed as we continue on...
Tensions were high on our final day of shooting. We knew things could get dangerous so we made sure we had heavy security.
I rested easy knowing my crew was safe in the hands of the best men in San Diego.
They were the masters of stealth,
Sharp eyed, keen and cunning,
slick as a penguin in an oil spill,
no one would dare step out of line with these men on the scene.
"Alright everyone! Stay Calm! We've got this!"
This Thanksgiving we returned to Merchantville, New Jersey to film the exterior shots for Cyril B. Jones. There we saw the structure that is seen by many as the icon of Merchantville. It proudly crowns the corner of Maple Ave and Center Street. It is a charming little thing though, I am not exactly sure what it is...
Today you decide! Post your theory in a comment below! The person who's theory I like the best will receive a Giant Chipmunk Productions mug.
In the mean while, I'll research the real answer and post my discoveries with the first Episode of Cyril B. Jones on December 18th!
