sometimes Things just Don’t Work Out.
but that’s ok.
even when it’s a book promo video shoot.
you see – the Industry (whomever they Are) decreed (is that the same as the sort of Tweet that King Herod might have put out? oh dear, can you imagine being His digital consultant……) – that a Talking Head is the way to sell a book.
not when we saw it.
although who-we-are-in-RL did a valiant job but it just Didn’t Look Like a teamgloria production (because it wasn’t one – #notetoselves)
and the director did her (how modern) best. and the MUP (remember? make up and hair artist) did her best too.
but in the end, really, it’s about us (not who-we-are-in-RL).
so we’re Taking this baby over (there’s not really a baby, we just got a bit mobster’s moll for a second then).
back to the drawing board.
a cute teamgloria productions with a twinkle and inter-titles-like-a-silent-movie will arrive within the next week or so.
now we just need the Right outfit to Direct this.
something in satin (naturally) and yet which emits deep Authority.
we’ll get back to you (although if you have a link or two – perhaps one with Ms Joan Crawford, or Collins, we adore both, do Send).
and in other news:
and it was going to be another one of those mornings that comes under the heading of:
“gosh, yes, this is Exactly how we thought it would Be!”
because we had a 7AM (our time) call on the princess-phone with our Publisher (such a delicious word) in england (hence the early hour and location) about promotional copy for the book launch for messrs apple and amazon (for ms. kindle and miss. iPad)
of course the call went well because we are still *swooning* from the walk down 3rd street promenade last evening when we gazed deeply at the chandeliers in the Shop that starts small people (aka children, not people of shorter stature although we’re sure they Adore chandeliers too) Early on their journey into bling. the chandeliers gave us even more pleasure because we had already spent a quiet hour in the Library.
after a delicious morning (yesterday) at – well – we think we can tell You.
you see who-we-are-in-RL was asked (very nicely, with a lovely Scottish accent actually) to join the Committee (always a dubious hono(u)r but this is a very smart one) for the Innovation Awards at Brit Week and so we tagged along and hung out near the photocopier and waited and enjoyed the view (no pictures allowed on Government Property) and thought more clearly about our Directing task for her book promo 2.0.
a thought to leave you with:
before you-know-what happened we spent a quiet night pondering what-might-happen and where-would-we-end-up (hopefully Los Angeles, but it looks Ever so Unlikely at that point) and whenever we got down (which happened quite a lot more in those days) we decoupaged (doesn’t everyone?)
and we made this.
it was a sultry day (because Manhattan does a sultry summer July very convincingly) and we got covered in decoupage clue in a most wistful way.
and now LOOK - we LIVE IT***
This year’s weekly column Where Shall We Meet by Sophia Stuart was one of the site’s biggest attractions. Where should you go if a friend and you want to go shopping? Check this out. Where do you go if you want to house a meeting? Check this out. Where do you go if you just want a casual place to hang out with someone? Check this out. All of the entries in this series are fantastic but here are a few of our favorites from this year.
and, well, we’ll be meeting Anjelica Huston next week.
time to Concentrate.
we need to start looking back at some of our “previous work” to get inspiration for a teamgloria productions book promo of our own.
like, well, this one:
***careful with the Vision boards and decoupage – it might just come True *shivers_deliciously*
now where’s our AD and grip? (vocab alert: assistant director and the biggish chap with the sticky tape who moves large objects and the camera around)
