Orphan Black Mind Screw


After the Emmys were announced and there was all the uproar about Tatiana Maslany from Orphan Black not getting nominated, I decided to watch the show On Demand. I watched all 10 episodes over the period of about a day  and a half.

Oh. Em. Gee. What an amazing show with a non typical storyline and wonderful cast of characters, most of them played by Tatiana, who should most definitely be nominated for an Emmy come next awards show season. (run on sentence, whew)

The one thing that astounds me, aside from her ability to master all these different people, is how the show is shot. Having two or three of her in a frame at once is pretty mindblowing (or, as John Fawcett, one of the creators of the series says “It’s a bit of a, um, uh, a mind screw.”

Here is an explanation of how they shoot these scenes.

OWH Midweek Throwdown Friendship – Masculine Twist


Operation Write Home has their latest Midweek Throwdown up – Friendship. Sandy Allnock put up a challenge via OWHtv for Masculine cards.

Here’s my submission –

The stamp actually has “moving” and “forward”, which would be fine for altered art of scrapbook pages but is kind of weird for cards. I masked the moving bit and layered a “Hello” over it.
