My good friends Trevor Erickson and Nick Smith entered their movie, Cold Soldiers, into the first annual Charleston Film Festival last week and won the”Audience Award” for 2010! Yay! I got to play a part as a get-away / stunt driver in the film which was a lot of fun. I have always enjoyed acting and working on films because there are so many people involved when producing and shooting an movie and it really is a lot of time, energy, and effort involved. I think both the guys worked almost three years trying to get this made with little to no budget. The whole crew had a great time at the Terrace Theater for the opening night premiere. Even though the weather was really nasty, a ton of people showed up which was great! I got to shoot some of the images for the movie poster sometime last year and Trevor put the layout design together which I think turned out  really nice! ;-) Trevor also had Force Protection come out to the premiere and bring on of the awesome vehicles to have on display. Force Protection is a local company that builds armored vehicles for all of troops fighting overseas. You probably already saw The Buffalo in the Transformers movie last year and didn’t even know that it was built right here in SC! Also, a big thanks goes out to my friend, Gordon King of ProPac USA, who was nice enough to not only allow us to use is sweet Ford GT40 in the film, but also his BMW. (Gordon was also a credited stunt driver in the film.)

This is a quick pic of owner Michael Furlinger (in the middle) with Keva and Karen Keys who had the short film, Letters from Home, right before Cold Soldiers opened.

Some of the cast of Cold Soldiers: R.W. Smith, Nick Smith, Charlie Thiel, Trevor Erickson, Tom, and Michael Easler.

This was the awesome truck that Force Protection brought out to the premiere. It’s the little baby brother, The Cougar 4×4, to the bigger Buffalo truck that was used in the Transformers movie.

Here’s some of the crew from Force Protection with Nick and Trevor.

The first teaser trailer that was created for the movie: Once I figure out this new blog upgrade to WordPress and how to embed some of the YouTube video trailers, I’ll update this post. Uggh!!!!

Chris & Cami / GREAT STUFF, Robbin!!! Fantastic job in the film. Plus the movie poster is AMAZING! Did Joe McNally assist on that one???   03.19.2010- 11:46am 

Last month I helped to host a cocktail party at the Governor’s House Inn for some of the event planners here in town. This party helped to showcase the beautiful inn and everything that they had to offer not only when it comes to staying there as a guest at the bed and breakfast, but also to host smaller weddings and corporate events. If you are looking for a place for your bridal party and / or family to stay while here in Charleston, this is a great spot right in the heart of downtown Charleston. This year also marks the homes 250th anniversary and is on the National Historic Registry.  We had a great turnout and it was so fun to see everyone and catch up for the upcoming wedding season. Mary Kittrell, property manager of the Inn, was such a pleasure to work with for this event. Some other great vendors here in town that also helped were Frampton’s Flowers, Ice Box bartending, Hamby’s Catering, The RSVP Shoppe,  and Other Brother Entertainment who provided us with a wonderful piano player named Anthony. Here’s a couple of quick pics from the event. You can see more images at this link.

Here’s an image of some of my new gift boxes for clients! The beautiful arrangement of flowers was created by Paul at Frampton’s Flowers.

Another close up pic of my new boxes!

The beautiful dining room area at the Governor’s House Inn where we had some of our wedding albums and engagement sign in books on display.

Our great bartender from Ice Box.

This was Anthony from Hall’s Chop House who provided all of the wonderful music on the piano that was imported from Europe in 1830.

Now Hamby’s Catering provided all of the delicious food and this neat little set up was called their “BLT”. A piece of lettuce with tomatoes chunks and bacon bits on the bottom. How cool is that!

Oh Yummy! White chocolate covered strawberries with an awesome butterfly design on top!

Another nice setup. This is their “shrimp and grits” in a bite sized portion. I could have eaten the whole entire tray of these. I love some shrimp and grits! ;-)
