On a personal note:
IT HAS BEEN A WHILE!
SOMEHOW, I've managed to find LOTS to keep me busy and get me growing in new ways.
->I just updated my Film/TV demo for 2021 with the help of David Pinkston, director/editor. Check it in DEMOS and CLIPS or on IMDb.
->My work as VP with WOMEN IN FILM-Dallas has led to my doing a FANTASTIC monthly video podcast with WIFD President TIFFANY VOLLMER. GO TO Women In Film -Dallas to find out what we do and to view the podcasts. And consider JOINING US!
->Still watching a LOT of film and TV. There is so much wonderful work out there!
->Locally, the film and video community is keeping things alive with great workshops, screenings, discussions and more. Check out: Dallas Videofest (www.videofest.org) , Dallas Filmmakers Alliance (www.filmindallas.org), Dallas International Film Festival (www.dallasfilm.org). WIFD is accepting submissions for our October TOPAZ FEST. Plan to be there! Come volunteer! WIFDallas.org
->I talked with Zoe Kerr, a recent SMU grad, about her interest in WIFD and discovered that she is a filmmaker who is shooting Demo Reels, including original material, in Dallas. I’ve seen some of her work and she is great! Contact me to learn more.
-> I worked one feature film shoot last fall in Oklahoma (Unplugging). SAG-AFTRA is carefully monitoring the health and safety of its members and production is slowly starting up. Beyond that, I've shot a web-series pilot (Well F**k Me), a web-series episode (Bail Out) and 2 amazing shorts (Amber the Acrobat and Sweet Lemonade). So grateful for those opportunities!
->I am a SAG-AFTRA Texas Local board member. We are working with TXMPA (Texas Motion Picture Alliance), our industry’s lobbying arm, to make the case for film incentives to our state legislature. If you aren’t a member of TXMPA, consider joining: www.txmpa.org
-> I created a short film based on a newspaper article about an 80 year old woman shooting a deer from her kitchen window while making lunch, which I also posted. The author and hunter loved it. I hope to post more shorts films/videos on my IGTV https://www.instagram.com/gailcronauer/
->The Vast of Night, in which I appear, is showing up on a LOT of Best of 2020 lists. Check it out on Amazon Prime!
->I’m learning Italian! Still hoping to make that trip to Sicily! And I recently started studying German, too!
Let me hear from you! If you are financially pinched, talk with me about it. If you are only interested in a coaching, let me know.
I look forward to hearing from you!
