Squee!

Okay, so soundproof box = cone of silence, y/y? :D

Anyway, this was so incredibly nice of her! Thank you Helen!

I hope one of the stills that we’ll get later is of Malachy crying. I want to see that so badly! I know that sounds weird.

Oh, and note to self: take photography classes like you’ve always wanted, save up for professional camera, move to Hollywood and become stills photographer.

Wow! That is so cool! Congrats and thanks for the interview!
Cant wait for part two and the rest of the photos!! :) Oh im so excited!!!

She seems to be really nice! Oh and I love this “a real cool cat”. Miau! Does that mean something in special in Ireland or just like “guy”.

I really should wait longer before I hit “submit comment” because I end up triple posting!

Anyway, I just made it sound easy to do what she does and I don’t think that at all. I just wanted to be clear. I wish I had her talent.

I know she is super talented. I couldn’t believe she was the one who took all of those pictures we’ve gotten from TLFC. She has some sweet things coming up in the second part. Some of you know since you contributed questions!

Wehwww, awesome job, Jo!!!! *high fives her like a jubuliant idiot*

I’ve always been interested in photography, unfortunately, I don’t think I have an eye for it. :( Thank you Ms. Sloan for the interview! *waves*

It’s great to know more about the different kinds of photos. Weren’t we all wondering whether those three were promo shoots instead of pics from the film itself?

Jo
January 20th, 2009 at 1:08 AM

I was wondering my ass off. We wanted to know so much more, like the messages behind CB, colors etc… She is going to give us quite a few more tidbits so yes big thanks to her!!!!!

Michelle
January 20th, 2009 at 1:12 AM

So did you ask her those questions specifically about the color references and the messages?

That was really nice of her to take time to answer some questions. Cool interview, congrats on securing that. Can’t wait to see the second part.

It’s really nice of her to compliment how the site is run as well, hopefully that sentiment is shared by the whole team behind CB!

Jo
January 20th, 2009 at 1:18 AM

Yes Michelle definitely, all of those things! And she complimented our myspace too so hey so far the CB team seems to digg us lol.

I like to get my edumication on!!! From waiting for these movies, we’ve learned about the ins and outs of financing indie films and now about different roles of the crew…

COOL CAT…..I love that.

I’ve always gotten annoyed about being considered a nice girl. Like Malachy, I keep threaten to rebel (only to be told, no your not…)

But now, being nice is kinda cool!!! *grins and nods*

I like being nice now!!! (at least for the moment)
