San Jorge

So for Thanksgiving weekend the Waite clan gathered in Saint George to celebrate Thanksgiving and to be there when Molly & Scott where sealed in the temple. It was a great trip full of great memories. We were really glad to be able to go and wish we could have stayed longer, but the trip was great and well worth the drive. On Friday I pulled out the camera and snapped a few photos, so I thought I would share a few of them on here.

Some BIG movie news!

Higher Definition Media's second feature film, Phase Two, was recently featured at the Bakersfield Comic-Con on November 8th!  There was a panel of some of the cast and crew who discussed some of the behind the scenes of the film and also talked a little about their upcoming projects.  It was really fun seeing everyone again and getting a chance to catch up.  Another highlight of the event was the Phase Two TRAILER!...

This is the Phase Two Teaser Trailer that premiered at Comic Con 2009 in Bakersfield, CA.

If you're interested in watching more clips from the movie you can check out the Phase Two facebook page.  Principle photography for Phase Two is completed, now it's just a matter of editing, and then on to the PREMIER!

And even bigger news!

HDM has began pre-production on it's next feature film!  We were lucky enough to have Liz, who is not only an amazing mother in law but a super talented writer, produce a screen play entitled Songs My Father Sang (working title).  The film is a 1950's period drama set in Kern County.  Songs my Father Sang will be a SAG (Screen Actors Guild) Union film and is slated to begin principle photography in March!  I can't tell you how excited I am to be involved!  I can't say this enough but it's really a great script and it's going to be amazing!  We'll definitely keep everyone up to date with the progress of the film.

HDM's new blog & kid/pet pictures

First I wanted to start off writing this blog thanking everyone for posting HDM's website link on your pages.  You all are amazing!  Since Google and Blogger are partners any links found on blogs hold some pretty good weight.  Andy completely revised our site recently so that combined with your links have moved us up a lot already. So thank you! And as I promised before if anyone has a website to promote I'd be happy to add a link on my page. Just email me at amber at higherdefinitionmedia dot com.

Also as I mentioned, Andy completely updated the Higher Definition Media website and one cool feature that it has now is a built in blog.  So if your interested in local films, keeping up with the business, and/or watching Andy's new videos feel free to check it out and add it to your blog list.  HDM's Blog

Now that that's over I've got some pictures for you!  The kids and I had a little outing with the pets.  I didn't mean for it to turn into a photoshoot but I had my Iphone on me so I figured I'd snap a few.  Our bunnys name is Buttercup and our turtles name is Dmitri.  It's true, we have a tortoise and a hare.

Baby Blessing and Birthday

Sunday we got to be a part of two special events.  The first was the blessing of my little niece, Lilly, who was born on October 4th.  She looked beautiful in her blessing dress!  She is just the sweetest little baby.  Holding her almost makes me miss having a little baby around.  

The other was Eliza's 4th birthday!  Her and Evelyn are the best of friends.  Most of my family all got together for these two special events and it was so nice to get to see everyone and celebrate these beautiful girls!
