Hoping for different results when I hit the register button again.  Buying a new computer and changing everything over is a royal pain.  I purchased a new Mac Pro G4 Intel awhile ago and I’m just getting around to changing over.  Yuk.

Yes, please do.  You hear that on the set a bit when working with a makeup artist.  We shot this yesterday at my workshop.  I was working with Debbie Darakdjian for the first time, poor girl she didn’t know what hit her.  While jumping in I liked what I saw and asked her to take […]
