Background

Welcome to my new website!

It’s been a busy start to the year and I’m excited to share what I’ve been up to.

I’m producing a new web series called CODED.  Think Breaking Bad meets Breakfast Club.  Two of my faves and by the way, did you know that The Breakfast Club is celebrating it’s 30th anniversary this year? I know, hard to believe right?  If you have no idea what The Breakfast Club is, go rent it, now!  It’s a classic.

CODED the series is about a group of teenagers who suffer from severe emotional and behavioural disorders and one idealist teacher who believes he can save them.  His intentions are good of course but you’ll have to watch the show to find out what happens.  CODED is a StoryHive project, so as of March 16th, (coming up soon!) you’ll be able to watch the pilot episode and if you like it, please vote for it.  If CODED wins, then we get to make more juicy episodes.  Yipeee!

Sign up at www.storyhive.com to cast your votes March 16 – 26, 2015.  Check out CODED’s pitch video here and let us know what you think.

The concept for CODED resonated with me for various reasons.  As a mum, I have a vested interest in our education system.  Our children today will be the inventors, leaders and voices of tomorrow and I believe we need to do everything in our power to ensure that our children get an education.  Unfortunately, it’s not always an easy task.  CODED explores what can happen to kids who don’t always fit the mold of our education system and the challenges we face as a result.  It is my hope Paris that CODED will generate cheap jerseys discussion about how we can best support those who need it the most.  This has been a great education for me too…and continues to be.

It takes a village to make a show.  None of this would have been possible without the help of some pretty wholesale nfl jerseys amazing folks.  Steve Neufeld, the writer + creator of Coded, Gary Harvey our fearless director, Danny Nowak our cinematographer extraordinaire and the uber-talented Jarod Joseph who plays our lead character Shae. For everyone else, you know who you are and I thank you.

Here’s a pic of me on set cheap jerseys – I also play Rachel, the vice-principal of the school – with my good friend Angela Moore, who plays the Advertise principal Sarah, and our lead Jarod.   Everyone is getting into character and as you can see, Danny our und DP is making sure my lighting is perfect, thanks Danny!
