Get Back into Shape: The Three Steps on How to do Push-Ups

Lead actress Bridget Mae stars as Jet in my independent film Jet Slade: Rise of the Black Hood.
I've worked with her on many of her fitness workout programs and below she explains how to do a push up...
Fitness has always been a huge part of her life, never taking it too seriously, she goes through stages of dieting and fitness regimes. Below are demos of her explaining and demonstrating how she does her push ups.
PUSH-UPS: INTRODUCTION


PUSH-UPS: TIP 1



PUSH-UPS: TIP 2


PUSH-UPS: TIP 3

Fight training, fitness and body conditioning played a huge part in the preparation for Bridget's character. Fight choreography was also something new she had to learn too.

PUSH-UPS: SUMMARY
As Bridget explains, you can do push ups any where and at any time. The more you practice, the stronger and better you will become at doing them.

FILM TALK, THE WHO & THE EXCLUSIVE

Social media has grown exponentially over the years and because of this, our attention span is getting shorter and shorter. We keep conjuring up concepts and thinking of new ideas to bring excitement, by captivating our audiences with new and creative innovative thinking. Visuals, sound and music is a great way to capture attention.

When utilising social media, what is more important to you... Does it really matter how many people you have following you on social media, does it make you feel more important? Or is it more important to have the right people following you? Depending on your social field and background, I feel it is more important to me to interact with the right people, people who have the same interests as me... "Though my interests do vary somewhat." 

We are and can all be great in our own way.

THE WHO - EXCLUSIVE
In one of my previous blog posts I wrote a brief paragraph about screen writer and producer, Caroline Spence...

Click on the link to read post: TRENDING: Filmmakers, Actors, Women In Film & Fitness.


Caroline Spence is a Screenwriter and Producer with Raya Films who are doing great and exciting things (Click on Raya Films logo to visit their website).
With the completion of 'Do Something, Jake' directed by James Smith, which premiered at the ODEON Cinema, Loughborough in September 2018. Here I am with director James Smith at the premier of 'Do Something, Jake. "You've never seen such a handsome pair."
They are now at the final stages of promoting a next viewing in London on 15th November 2018. If you haven't seen this film, I highly recommend it!

(PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT THE OFFICIAL BANNER,
I JUST DESIGNED IT FOR MY BLOG POST.

Where does Caroline find the time to write, produce and not only that, star as an assassin in her latest feature 'AGENT KELLY'... Director James Smith calls it, "An experimental movie."

Already in it's post production stage, this is one film I have been looking forward to seeing for a while. Huge thanks to director James Smith for supplying me with these exclusive and never before seen 'behind the scenes' images of Agent Kelly at it's editing stage.
Not much is known as yet about the story line, but in the image above (screen grab) it shows Agent Kelly played by Caroline running with urgency in her stride. The screen grab below, shows a more covert scene of Agent Kelly on the phone. "I wonder what the conversation is about?"

The information I have so far on Agent Kelly is from Raya Film's Website:

"A female assassin who avenged the killing of a friend now becomes the hunted."

"Sounds pretty intense doesn't it!"

Here is an exclusive scene from the movie, Agent Kelly:
Agent Kelly was filmed in two different country locations,
and also stars Spanish actor Eddie Gallego.
Not much is known about Eddie's character as yet, James and Caroline aren't letting any secrets  out of the hat. But by the caption at the end of the Trailer below, "Vengeance... it's always the beginning of the end." And if you put two and two together with "A female assassin who avenged the killing of a friend now becomes the hunted!"
Could Eddie's character be the hunter? This is only speculation... We'll just have to wait until the movie has been released...
AGENT KELLY - OFFICIAL MOVIE TEASER TRAILER #1

Here are a couple more images from Agent Kelly:
The locations look absolutely amazing, the kind of locations every
filmmaker wants to have in their movie. Here are some more images.
Agent Kelly directed by James Smith, written and starring Caroline Spence, looks like it's going to be something special. With her writing style, you can expect many twists and turns in this new female led action thriller.
The above image showing Caroline on the set of Agent Kelly, by the looks of things it seems she had a fantastic time. More up to date information and exclusive images can be found on 'Agent Kelly Movie website'... "Who's hunting who?" 

"But behind the smiles these are hard working and passionate people who love what they do!"

BELIEVE THE HYPE - INDEPENDENT FILM MAKERS

DO SOMETHING, JAKE
If you're like me, then you would be one of the lucky ones and had the privilege of attending the Film Premiere to Do Something, Jake on Thursday 20th September 2018, which was shown at the Odeon Cinema, Loughborough, UK.

With over 250 people attending it was an absolute sellout, and as you walked into the foyer you were greeted with a rapturous welcome. It felt like I was going to a Marvel showing, it was that busy.

An hour and forty minutes and very well paced, 'Do Something, Jake' will have you laughing and holding your breath as you sit at the end of your seats in anticipation waiting to see what happens at the end. The film is fun and as the story starts to unravel you root for the hero Jake, played by Jamie Alderson whose love interest Alice played by Mia Mills is torn and trapped in a no-win-situation. 
Ray Films, the makers of Do Something, Jake are currently in the process of organising a Premiere viewing in London. Please keep checking their website and film page for up to date information.

FILM
A great British film to look out for is 'Outlawed' a film by Adam Collins and Luke Radford and starring Adam Collins, see the official trailer below:
The UK is producing some great talent... Independent filmmakers are finally getting the right budgets and support via crowd funding to produce some quality movies. I feel this is just the beginning, and as more talented filmmakers, writers, producers and directors get the chance to get their work seen, this can only be the start of something promising.

I hope you've enjoyed reading my blog post, please share and give me a shout-out. Look out for more future post by me, it might even feature you.
