Letters from Georgina Lightning:

A letter from Georgina Lightning June 19, 2003:

We've returned from our very remote location, Stanley Idaho. Population 100. It was beautiful out there though. Of all my years in this industry I would have to say this film presented the most difficult working conditions I have ever faced, but at the same time most rewarding experiences as an actor with the amazing cast we were blessed to have working with us. They made all the difference in the world with their strong preformances and creative contributions in all the rewrites of the script. The story took on an entirely different shape with greater depths in characters and native mythology. We dropped the original title of the film since it doesn't fit anymore so at the moment it remains "Untitled". We have a few ideas but want to wait until it's finished to lock it in. I am very anxious to get started on post production. The plan is to get the financing in place soon enough to complete the film in time to submit to Sundance Film Festival. 

Cross your fingers for me.

Until next time take care annie;


Georgina Lightning in an e-mail October 31 2002:

(Annie: This piece is lightly edited, hopefully retaining all the original meaning!)

I just finished working on a Hallmark mini series called Dreamkeepers. It will air on ABC in May. It's being edited in London right now and they will bring it to LA where we will do the voice over and adr work. I've researched music composers for them as well... <snipped, waiting to mention names until it's set in stone> 

...I was originally hired to do all the acting coaching and aboriginal advising and consulting for all the key depts. It was an incredible challenge and I loved it.We were dealing with 6 different languages and dialects. I met a lot of great people on this project. Friday morning Cody and I are off to Utah. Cody is cast in Chris Eyres basket ball movie for Showtime. He is playing a radio d.j. He also worked on Dreamkeepers. He was cast as one of the seven brothers in the little dipper legend. William's most recent job was on a film this summer with Juliette Lewis called Blueberry. They shot in Mexico and then finished the shoot in Paris. He had a great time. My daughter Crystle went to Paris with him. He also just finished shooting his short film. Now he's in the editing stage. He's is building his directors reel. Crystle is studying right now with a great studio under Jerimiah and she's still taking piano lessons. Her most recent acting gig was on a music video for a rapper named Exibit.It's on heavy rotation on MTV. Check it out if you have time...

Disclaimer: For some of these actors there are no photos available on the web. In an effort to get the attention of people associated with these actors, I'm displaying close up captures of these actors (depending on availability). I don't like using captures, and as soon as I get legal photos to display of these actors the captures are gone. In other words, give me an excuse to take these captures down. I've seen that a presence on the web has a big effect in getting exposure and more fans for an actor, so this is important.
