    Just curious: why did you choose to attend a women's college? Was it something other than the ratio?

    (I didn't know men could do that - kinda defeats the purpose, eh?)

    I will friend you, too, but then you'll have to see all my aviation stories on Facebook!

    Let me know when you're in SFO and we'll do the "duckie" video for real. You can fly some of the time too.

    Good question!

    I can't speak for the college in terms of defeating the purpose or not, but it's not the only school that allows men and still maintains a WOMENS COLLEGE classification. It's a ratio thing for them. They have to maintain a certain guy/girl ratio to keep that status. It's why my first year I was one of 9 (i think) and the last year, one of 16. More females= more guys they can have. Since the males are only in two departments: dance/theatre...it's easy for them to control.

    I chose that particular school because I attended a community college and started doing theatre then. By the time I hit my 3rd year, I knew I wanted to continue on to my BFA program and I looked at various schools, but Stephens would have many perks (aside from the obvious you were hinting at ;) ) and one of them being a nice percentage of scholarship (which considering my current loans...eesh). The other was that, as males, you'd be required to work on EVERY show, be it on or off stage. The other was because it is a three year program, and they'd be allowing me to enter, accepting my other credits so that I only would have to do two years to earn my BFA. Most other programs want to build you from the first year up. I didn't want my three years to go to waste. So it put me right on par, earned my BFA in 5 years. I also like seeing different places. I could have easily looked at a school in NY, but it's too close to home and I wanted something different.

    AND...yes..it IS a women's college, so that didn't hurt.

    Hey all! I see some of you found me on FB! Thanks :)

    I'm excited to see your posts and stories :)

    Things are going great here. Rehearsal and time to acclimate to the city/country. Today is our last day --- tomorrow is first day on set!!!

    I love it here. I've not noticed many planes...but I've got my models I'm going to be working on.

    Things move slowly here...internet, people, service...kind of nice actually.

    I've been posting daily videos/blogs if you are bored and are one of those people that takes your iPhone, iPad or such in place of a newspaper to certain places... ;)

    They've made some adjustments to the script for our flight purposes. I shared what I learned from you and they did some additional research as well to accommodate, so thanks!

    JOE! No more Lear Jet! It's a double engine Cessna. I'll have to get further clarification, but it seems it will be more like what I've seen and ridden in???

    They told me that the plane they have is actually the type they DO use for drugs. I didn't ask how they knew, lol.

    Joe, I told them yesterday about the technique you shared with me. I have mentioned before, but in the scene, I have to essentially "fix the auto pilot" then I use it as a distraction to knock out one of the goons and grab his gun. Joe shared a method that would send the goon flying into the ceiling of the aircraft, thus knocking him out.

    We'll see if they use that!

    Talk soon amigos! (my spanish is getting better, see?)

    if my idea works then I need a writing credit too - thats money!

    hahahah

    the procedure 'could' also cause some mayhem in the airplane as well since they could hit switches in the overhead panel!

    Thanks! My postings may be sort of lame alot. They were entertaining when I was in flight training. But in the next coming weeks I should be posting about my tail dragger experience. (weather permitting!)

    Hey all!!!

    Tomorrow I film the airport/plane scenes!!

    Believe it or not, as long as I've been out here...I've only filmed ONE day. That's hollywood for you, HURRY UP AND WAIT.

    There has been a lot of work though with rehearsals and just supporting others on set and of course, once I start tomorrow, it doesn't end for me. We were shooting out one of the other actors, so it was easier to have me wait.

    I'm very excited and will keep you posted!

    If you have time, I've been keeping daily blogs/videos going as promised!

    First night home in LA. I woke up with this song in my head because it was our song for Cartagena during The Flight Plan filming. My song of the summer. Enjoy :)

    They need to change that, cause everybody knows you can't have an incident if you've filed a flight plan:D

    Yeah, where did he drop off to?

    I see he got director credit?

    "The Flight Plan tells the story of Ben Gray, an anxiety-ridden pilot. Ben, trying to escape his problems, finds himself stranded in Cartagena, Colombia after his documents and money are stolen. Now, he will need to go beyond the law to get back to the US in time to save his terminally ill son. The story takes place amidst a burgeoning war between bordering countries Colombia and Venezuela"

    According to his FaceBook: "A lot of you know I did a film in Cartagena, Colombia two summers ago. It's making it's premiere we JUST found out March 16th IN Colombia. I can't swing the $800 international flight on short notice, but was given a suggestion of doing an all or nothing, week long KICKSTARTER. What thinks you??" http://www.gofundme.com/79rhwo

    Looks like he has already exceeded the goal.
