Fun Time with Ann (Pilot Episode)

I remember the first time it happened many years ago. I cannot tell you exactly how old I was, but not much, I was such a kid. Maybe I even did not grow up much, I am still that kid who takes on different outfits and pretends that she is an actress, singer, dancer and whose auditorium – her great-grandmother. The scene is as fresh as if I see it now. My great-grandmother sits in her dress and a floral pattern headscarf on the sofa and attentively looks at the curtains of the next room. Suddenly one of the curtains is slightly opened by a small childish hand and a funny girl stands on the impromptu stage. She wears her aunt’s high heel shoes and long colorful dress. It apparently does not suit her size and hangs on her awkwardly. However, this little silly star starts to sing and dance, and her granny (as she called her) smiles beamingly. The sunlight peeps through the thick window curtains and plays with its dancing spots on the head of the newly-made star. The dark unwelcoming room transforms to the sparkling scene where a new talent is born. Her voice is not the best, she hardly has one, and however, she does not seem to care. She enjoys being in the center of attention, she moves in her own tempo and nothing else matters. Her granny applauds and also sings with her, she looks so joyful. This silly little girl has already knows that one day she is going to stand on the real stage and the professional camera will be pointed at her…and fortunately she will just talk and not sing, lucky you are, my dear little Friends. Please welcome Ann:

The Best of Summer

“Summertime is always the best of what might be.” (Charles Bowdan)

Recalling summer days is the most rewarding activity. It brings a broad smile to my face and a playful sparkle to my eyes. I felt a surge to reproduce the best of my summer and demonstrate it to you. I do miss my summer. It occurred to me that I did not say goodbye to the hot season when everything or anything is possible. So now let me tell you, dear Miss Summer, a couple of warm words.

“Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people. For those few months, you’re not required to be who everyone thinks you are, and that cut-grass smell in the air and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool give you a courage you don’t have the rest of the year. You can be grateful and easy, with no eyes on you, and no past. Summer just opens the door and lets you out.” ―Deb Caletti

Summer does open the door to the brightest world ever. There you can enjoy the longest days and shortest nights, you can taste a variety of fruits and vegetables, and you can relax and let yourself being silly. Sometimes summer might be a bit wearisome due to extremely high temperatures that drank the water from our bodies. During such period our brain melts and we feel not so happy. All we need then is to leave everything and escape to some perfect place where the body and mind will dance in harmony.

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”―John Lubbock

The place for being idle found me and I could not resist its beauty and calmness. My feet freely walked on the grass, between apple trees and flowers. My eyes caught the joyful glimpses of sunrise and sunset. My hands touched the gifts of the generous season. My mind was emptied from any thoughts. Or perhaps these thoughts were so natural that they were invisible or unreadable. A pretty awesome feeling when your mind is easy and light as a summer butterfly.

“But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.”― Stephen King

Grab A Bag

tote-bag

Every lady needs a bag…and not only one. Right?! In the wardrobe of any lady should be not less than 6 bags of different shape, size, color, and for various occasions. All of them take comfortable places at the shelves of the lady’s wardrobe and wait to be recognized in time. It is a very essential to pick up the right one for the right occasion and appropriate outfit. If bags can talk, what would we hear from them then? I suppose they would try to teach us that  going for shopping is not possible with an elegant clutch under your arm, as trying to squeeze there a piece of bread might be too challenging. Your pretty Ms Clutch would frown at such a thought even. Such dame’s loyal assistants can play  a key role in placing only luxurious occupants such as Mr Smartphone, Mr Wallet, Mrs Lipstick, and Ms Keychain. Seats are taken according to the tickets bought. Thus, we have to have an extra bag for shopping, which should be spacious and not so graceful. I believe Mrs Shopping Bag has to be of an  obese shape. Her primal mission is to provide enough space for vital food products or sometimes something else as well. Mrs Shopping Bag should accompany you almost everywhere, since we face so many difficulties with big things to be taken with us, for example, our lunch. We should keep in mind that lady Working Bag is of too noble origin to be able to provide such a service. Oh no, she is too business like. However, the most responsible from all of them are Mr Rucksack or Mr Suitcase. Yeah, two responsible females in the ladies’ circle. There should be always those ones who will keep everything packed and in order. What can I say! It is so beneficial to keep a cock in every henhouse. Would you agree, ladies?

A Wake Up Scene

pillows

The first morning sunlight gently sneaks through the tiny holes of the shutter at her window. It cunningly teases the tightly closed eyelashes. No motion. Few second later the sunlight intensifies its effect and tries to squeeze its brighter beams through the narrow gaps of the window barriers. Every possibly efforts are directed at the sticky bars of the asleep eyelashes. The sound accompaniment joins the game. A cock wakes up the surroundings with his cock-a-doodle-doo song. Now ears are in game too. It is a foul play. As light as butterfly eyelashes give up in the unfair battle. They slightly shimmer and the lungs stop inhaling smoothly. Electric impulses are traveling through the body parts in search of something.  The legs and arms twitch convulsively.  Blood circulation becomes more evident. The other pressing needs give a red light. The deep sound sleep is interrupted. There is no way to come there back and hide from the signs of the brand new day…

Behind the Scenes

Hello to all of you, my little Friends! Hope you are doing well. I have been offline for some time, thus I did not post anything for a certain period and paid perhaps not enough attention to you. Do not bear a grudge against me. My mind (together with its beloved master) went out for vacation.  At least once in a year we have to let ourselves escape far away and set offline status. Certainly sweet gadgets are always with us. They are on guard of our cyber reality and not allow us to disappear without any trace. Moreover, Mr Internet accompanies our journeys and follows us to the most distance corners. I confess that this vacation was particularly good, since I was presented a visit at the very special place. This is a saint place for every freak filmmaker. Will you guess? Click on the link and the answer will appear automatically: 

Who will tell me what kind of trick I used in my short film? I am sure there are many creative specialists among you. I had such fun while preparing this 5-minutes tour for you. I had a goose skin, did not you notice? Kidding. However, it was really a fantastic experience for me to peep through cinematography hole. I found out a lot. As a filmmaker I could not share with you many secrets, but as a passionate fan of films I assure you that filmmaking is a hard and often exhausting process that requires a huge amount of knowledge and skills. Every detail has to be taken into account and played in the head. So many things have to be kept under control. You may not believe but that is true. On the creation of a few second scene usually work hundreds if not more people who are experts in the wide variety of fields. In my film you even have a unique opportunity to see a real space cabin used for The Martian…I do not joke, this is the same one used in the famous film. In fact, a lot of scenes from this film were made exactly at this studio. Unbelievable! I could spend endless time there. And I could talk endlessly about it, perhaps for some of you not so interesting as well. Hope I did not make you yawn from boredom. This topic is too dear to me and I usually forget about the time and the length of my posts. As it is known it should not be too long. Thank you for watching my film and reading my murmuring post. I am very grateful for every bit of your attention. I would appreciate any comment!

Your know I love you!

Hugs!

Yours Ann
