aaand action!

See the cutie with the basketball and blue beanie?
That's my sis-in-law, Betta, and she's just totally directing a movie. 

Betta's capstone film, Dante's Hamlet, is in full production swing. Shooting started last weekend in downtown Salt Lake so Chas and I got to check it out, VIP style. 
At one point, someone approached me and asked if I had "signed in."
"Ummm I'm related to the director," and then I waved him away. 
Like I said.
V.I.P.

But seriously, we were so proud of Bette.
It was amazing to see so many people on the crew and how real it all was. I don't know what I was expecting but it felt like there was a real-life little Hollywood set in good ol' SLC! 

All of a sudden, our little Betta is all grown up. 
Making movies and directing drive-by shootings...

Sniff. Sniff.

ha! I love it! Thanks for coming by, Sammy! Sorry that I couldn't chat with you guys. Directing is harrrrd. Takes all my concentration. But it was great to see you there. :)

That's awesome. I would love to be part of something like that... or related to someone who's part of something like that. ha!

And just a curious question... what types of cameras do they use??

Ah! My friend is in this movie :) It sounds like it is going to be great. It is cool that you got to go see work being done on it. Your family sounds like it is full of ridiculously talented people.
