There's a new convention appearance for June. Carrie is coming to Origins in Ohio which is also supposed to be a pretty nice convention, so if you're in the area, you might wanna check it out and say hello!

Other than that, Cinevative keeps on going strong and a move to new office space is at hand! Call Tim Taylor! ;)


Well, well... (luckily!!) life is very busy and so the website has been (unfortunately!!) suffering a little. Sorry for that, but today there has been an update for the convention page - Carrie comes to NY area in March!

For those of you who might want to ask - yes, Cinevative is doing very well which is indicated by fewer updates here because of business... so take it as kind of a good sign ;)

"Pickets" got into the Austin Film Festival in Austin Texas, Oct. 10-17. It is also going to play at the LA Short Film Festival that takes place Oct. 15-20.

There is a new opening message on the site... and lord knows it took long enough ;)

The short film "Pickets" which Carrie and her husband have been working on with their production company is now complete and being submitted to both national and international film festivals.

Here is a short description of the film along with the promotional poster (click the picture for a larger version):

"Starring Oscar Winner Ray McKinnon (The Accountant, O Brother Where Art Thou), John Short (Apollo 13, Diggstown) and Barry Lynch (Desert Hawk, Sleepstalker).

1864 - the last summer of the Civil War. A truce is called between three exhausted soldiers in the dead of night.

Although wary of each other, an unlikely friendship forms, until the reality of war crashes in to rip their bond apart."
