One of the short film projects that I have been working on lately is
"Words of Wisdom with Jane Austen."
My friend, Emily, and I got together
at the beginning of this year
to plan out different video series that
celebrate Jane Austen and reveal different aspects of Regency life
as a way to promote the 2014 Jane Austen Festival
that's coming up on July 18th, 19th, and 20th of this year.
Since winter seemed to drag on and on this year,
filming kept getting pushed back further and further.
Until the beginning of this month,
when my other friend and very talented actress, Marrie Koch,
and co-hort in "All things Jane Austen," Bonny Wise,
met at National Historic Landmark, Locust Grove, to
film in the 1790s house.
Locust Grove was the perfect setting for these short films.
I am very grateful for the opportunity to film there.
There has been a great response so far!
We have new episodes to release every Monday leading up the Festival in July.
So, here's the first two episodes, for your viewing pleasure,
(they're only about 20-30 seconds in length):
