"Authentic Happiness" by Martin Seligman. This is a great read by a hilarious Psychologist. He has spent the last 30 years studying what happiness really means and how we can truly get it, all the while struggling with it himself. One of the things I am going to do for my blog is cover other kinds of reading that I often do, a bit of self-help stuff, and I am also going to review knitting books and cookbooks!
Today I am going to spend some quality time with Wolf Hall. I love this one, but have not had some serious time with it. I am also still reading A Lion Among Men, and I'll chip away at that one too.
I work in the film business. I have been a third assistant director for 14 years in Alberta, and my husband is a camera assistant. This is how we have supported our family for all of these years, we do nothing else work-wise. It occurred to me when I worked on my last movie, that it might be neat to do an insiders view on films that are adapted from books. The last show I did was adapted from a book called, "Angels Crest" by Leslie Schwartz (working title of film "Waska"). Because it was a low budget feature I figured it would be filled with no name actors, but was thrilled to find out that I was working with Mira Sorvino, Jeremy Piven, Elizabeth McGovern, Kate Walsh and Thomas Dekker. I had worked with Jeremy's Dad years ago on Jack Bull, so it was neat to chat with him about it. I am going to read the book, and then compare it to the script and then share some insights into the shooting of the movie as well.
Ken Follet's "Pillars of the Earth". He returned from Europe last month, and I am going to ask him if he would agree to do a vlog interview so we can get all of the scoop about the filming of the show before anyone else! It took 8 months of shooting and many countries, so I am sure he has a story or two he would be willing to share!
Hopefully you will all enjoy this new feature as I begin implementing it in the weeks to come! I will entitle these features "Books to Film: An Inside Peek" And then the name of the project.
Here is a little promo about the stars and films that have been shot here over the years!
Have a WONDERFUL Sunday!
