So it may seem a wee bit odd for me to write about a movie. I mean, I am not a movie critic on the side or anything, although I think I’d like to be, I love, love, love a good movie and can appreciate excellent writing. I have good reason to want to talk about one movie in particular. Nancy Meyers, is just an outstanding writer/director. To her credit are movies like What Women Want, Something’s Gotta Give, & the The Holiday. In this movie, titled, It’s Complicated a comedy about love, divorce and everything in between, stars some of my absolute favorite actors of all time, Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin & Steve Martin. Ummm….hello? Who wouldn’t want to see the awe inspiring chemistry of these 3 on screen? So what’s the significance already? Twist my arm already, here’s the skinny. About 4 months ago I was on the phone with the prop master for this film at NBC Universal. She was looking for some specific types of photos for a scene in the movie. I put together a plethora of images and prints for Nancy herself to review for use in the film. I had get it all together rather quickly and Fed Ex it to them in New York just before they were set to begin filming. Apparently there was a meeting about this scene and they needed to review my images asap. Crazy I know. I was thrilled they chose 2 to use in the scene. So here’s what I do know about the scene, there’s a wedding being planned in Santa Barbara and I believe it’s between the characters being played by Alec Baldwin and the gorgeous Lake Bell. They are going to be looking through a wedding album and looking at 2 of my images of cakes. I realize it may only be this microcosm of a detail in this film, but I get the opportunity to leave a footprint of my work to my credit that I never imagined before. Just knowing that someone like Nancy Meyers has seen my work along side some of the most talented actors on the planet just makes me giddy with excitement. I am honored to be an itty bitty part of such a cool project. It’s due out on Christmas Day. If you see a girl sitting in the front row with a small video camera intensely watching the credits, don’t disturb me please. hee hee!
Anyway, check out the trailer. Looks like a super cute movie.
