Filming: Zappos Commercial RELEASED – I made the final cut!

**It’s true, it’s true – look, look!**

Me as a bystander as the Zappos' hero rushes by me.

Watched the final commercial several times and we’ve spied me in this VERY fast-paced commercial at least 4-times already.  YAY – I didn’t wind-up on the editing floor!  #WhompWhomp

Whatta day it was – I watched some very entertaining, creative, talented & professional crew-of-brothers film.  Tis fascinating how all of those takes came together as they did to birth this commercial masterpiece – baffling, like magic.

Okay, logistics – as I’m sure you’re dying to know.  *w*  The commercial will be airing shortly.  Sadly, I do not know as to which channels it will be on nor the exact air date,  However, with us being in winter attire in the commercial factored with Christmastime decor already in stores, I think I’d be safe to assume it’ll be airing on TVs nationwide VERY soon so be sure to keep-on the look-out!

I want to, once again, express how thankful and honored I was to be chosen to partake in the filming.  Not only did I get to ‘work my craft’, but I met a lot of nice people.  It was most definitely an adventure-of-a-day.

And, a VERY special thank you out to … The Herbert Brothers, zappos.com, and Patty Bamber whose filming, awesome customer service and talented photography gave me a memory I shall never forget!  I’d be humbled to work beside any of you again – truly humbled.

Hugs …

Filming & Breaking through Paranormal Borders: On the Set

 

The day was an experience I’ll NEVER forget.  Not only do I have a new-found respect for ‘extras’ who are TRULY the ‘meat & taters’ stars, but I’m now in-love with my furnace (as this endless Indiana winter reared its brutal ugly head again that day).

I’m still very grateful, humbled and honored to be part of such a professional LARGE group of individuals; even the A&E crew were gems!

Just a few of the memories:

I shall keep you posted as to when the Zappos ‘villains vs. good guy’ commercial airs as well as when this commercial is featured on their A&E  reality series (mid-summer).
Hugs & Happy Hunting …
