“This is Strip Steak Experimental L-1-1 commencing test firing on Engine Three…”

Thursday was the long-awaited filming of Terry Lawrence as Pilot Perkins, and the whole process was hilarious, from the rigging of the “pilot’s seat” to the real difficulty of reading through five whole lines of dialogue without somebody breaking out into laughter.  Pictures, hopefully, will follow soon.

“I Hope You Realize This Means War”

That was my favorite line from any Bugs Bunny cartoon ever made.  It has dual bearing on this particular post:

1)  I’m a little peeved that I haven’t had much response yet from people related to my poll in the last post.  After all, the goal is to make a show that you yourselves want to see happen, whether as an actor, a crew member, or a fan!

-and-

2)  My game, Art War, is now in production… or at least the limited edition version.  You see, Art War is a collectible card game;  the limited edition is a collector’s version, containing all 108 cards in one box, as opposed to the regular version of the game, which will contain a mixed set of 54, including the rules card and the checklist.

Confusion! They’re Gone!

Wow. January’s not even over, and all the Jack Uzi 2014 calendars are out! I sold the last one yesterday, well before the show was over! Hopefully, this will show our producer that somebody wants to see what we’re doing. Yes, we still need views and subscriptions (so please, everybody, share the series with all your friends!), but I have to admit that it was gratifying seeing everybody’s hard work go home in eager hands. Thanks–that was easily one of the first cool things to see during the new year.

Have a happy Civil Rights Day tomorrow!

Meet Paytra Gessler

Today, we focus on Paytra Gessler–little did we know when we cast her as one of Christy’s friends in Baltimore that we were casting a musical sensation! This singer, dancer, and lyricist hails from Toledo, Ohio is pounding her way into the teen music world with her hard-hitting vocals and stirring lyrics. Behind her big brown eyes is the mind of a true musician, passionate about sharing her music with the world.

Have a Jack Uzi Christmas: Buy a calendar!

Next week: A Secret!

The Lost Weekend

We all have our days when events go in a different directions than expected; this has been one of those weeks for me. I don’t want to go into details, but I will say this: some good came out of it, and I will likely have more to show you as a result next week. Until then, I’m going to give you a slight hint in the picture below… See if you can guess.

Me and You and a Box That Goes “Vzzt!”

Hey there, Uzi-watchers! Do any of you have a spare mixer board? Somehow, our editor managed to make the current one go up in flames! If you can lend us one, we can get the next segment out. If not, please help us out by buying the calendars, and then we can use that money to buy a new mixer that way.
