Bring It On & Richard Hillman

Thanks for all your kind words, gang.  It was so great seeing Nikki (Whitney), Max (Exec. Prod.), and Jessica (Writer), in addition to sharing the screening with a few friends who had yet to see the movie.  Note to self: Don't share four bottles of wine at dinner before a Q and A... Sorry Jessica!  lol 

On a more somber note, Payton asked "Mr. Beaks" (from Ain't It Cool News) to read a letter for him (Payton was at a wedding on the east coast and could not attend).  He informed everyone of the passing of actor Richard Hillman (who played Aaron) and mentioned how Richard lit up the screen every time he appeared on camera.

Richard was a sweet guy, a great actor and my experience working with Richard was wonderful.  I just wanted to take this opportunity to make sure people remember him.

Bring It On - 10 year Anniversary Celebration

Kirsten, Clare, Eliza, Rini, Gabrielle, Lindsey, Nathan, Jesse, Tsianina and Huntley

Clare, Rini and Kirsten

This is so awesome!  Thanks to Phil Blankenship, New Beverly Midnights, New Beverly Cinema and Ain't It Cool News (who I LOVE and read every day), we will be celebrating Bring It On's 10th anniversary at the New Beverly Cinema (co-owned by Quentin Tarantino).

This movie means so much to me.  Aside from the fun and experience of making it, not to mention the thrill of being in a blockbuster movie, what happened next affected my entire life in such unbelievable ways - BECAUSE of Bring It On I met one of my best friends, actress Bianca Kajlich who later introduced me to my loving husband, Brian.

This movie will forever mean the world to me in ways I will never be able to explain.  Thanks for making this happen guys.

Hope to see you all on Saturday for the Q & A and the screening!

San Diego Comic Con International

We're getting close!  I'll be signing at ComicCon again this year.  It's so much fun and such a huge party... If it's your first time, make sure you plan for the nightly festivities as well as the con itself.  This mega-geekfest has really evolved into something incredible, thanks to people like Jeffrey Walker (my hubby produced a movie with him and his son, Orion).  Jeffrey was rated Entertainment Weekly's 46th smartest person in Hollywood in December, 2007

Here's a few geeky facts that shows Comic Con's gi-normity:

  • Started in 1970 with 300 attendees with an entry cost of $3.00
  • Today, more than 1,000 dealers have stalls
  • One month after the 2009 convention, 10,000 tickets were already sold for the 2010 convention
  • In 2005, with 168,000 convention attendees the fire marshal shut it down 
  • Currently, no more than 145,000 attendees are permitted inside the convention center at any time
  • Comic-Con in 2008 attracted more than 134,000 people
  • An average of 68,000 spend the night in a hotel room
  • The 2009 convention celebrated 75 years of the adventure comic strips
  • Comic-con is the largest run volunteer-run convention in the world
  • Among those staying in hotels, about 68 percent hail from outside Southern California
 Hope to see you there!
