I got to be on set for a commercial shoot that took place at the end of August. It was a lot of fun and got to see the Cobbs Comedy Club and Bimbo's in the North Beach District, San Francisco. When we were cast for the project they told us nothing. When we got to the set, we were told that the client wanted to keep things very secret. No pictures were allowed and they didn't tell us what the product was. I got a picture of the inside of Cobs before they told us not to. I wont post it here to protect their privacy but man was it fun! Hope to see it in the states at least but we shall see! I will post a picture however of what I looked liked before I went to the shoot!
We have had some great crowds for the first Interactive Murder Mystery Western I've ever written/directed/acted in. Its been quite an adventure for sure. Between filming a 30 minute movie with the cast and going through the theatrical performances as well. I have to say, I feel so honored to be around so many talented performers and to have reached over 500 people with our show, so far! I am so proud of the cast, so proud of the crew and so VERY proud of the community we have built here in SF and the support we have gotten from family and friends who have either donated money, time, seen the show or worked on the show/film with us!
For those of you who don't know, I am branching off from the Diabla SF branch to expand our horizons to the North West. As of November 5th, Sean O'Connor and I will be moving to Seattle for a few years to try and establish the Film portion and connect with the music scene there. I will miss San Francisco. Over the last 5 years it has been my home and where I have found friends for life. As I slowly tell people, I've gotten a lot of "Why?" and "Are you serious?" which, I'm not gonna lie, has made me feel good that people will miss us, but also makes me feel more and more sad that I am leaving. I am hoping to bring out a few of the amazing artists I've worked with here to Seattle and meet new and fun people there as well. Currently, Sean and I are working on a Web-series that we are filming there and Christine Jovan, Co-Owner and soon to be SF contact of Diabla and I are working on a Film Musical which should be in the works as of 2015. Until then, look at what we got going on below with our reviews for "Flower Shop of Whore-ers".
" This was my first experimental theater experience. I've never been to a show where the characters came out into the audience and interacted with them quite the way they did in this show. Flower Shop of Whore-ers is an interactive murder mystery. In other words, you meet all the characters and get pieces of the story. (And what a colorful slew of characters they are. You quickly realize that almost all of them have motive for murder.) But then it's up to you to talk with the characters to discover more about what's really going on at the flower shop. If you're looking for a conventional theater experience where you sit passively in the audience while the story plays out, then this show is not for you. But if you want to reanimated corpse of the murder victim to come talk to you about why she thinks she might have been murdered, then you'll definitely enjoy FSoW. Anju's Pale Blue Eyes plays the house band/themselves and they were amazing. The EXIT Theater is also really cool. I might be swayed by how intimate the theaters are or the fact that they let you bring cocktails into the show. I'll definitely come to another show here."- Goldstar member
