Mark and I were so lucky to attend the 2011 World Trampoline, Tumbling and Double Mini-Tramp Championships in Birmingham, UK just before Thanksgiving. While there, I did a little commentary for Acrobatic Sports TV, again. This time we just recorded two-minute wrap-ups at the end of each day of finals. CHECK IT OUT!
Also, CONGRATULATIONS to the American Women for qualifying to compete in the Summer Olympics on London!
At the end of the first day of finals at the 2011 World Trampoline Championships in Birmingham, UK, the Chinese Men surprise everyone – by placing second! Dong Dong, one of China’s two top performers, uncharacteristically crashed in the middle of his routine! No one was more surprised than him. Japan took the Gold in the Men’s Team Final.

Yesterday, I dusted off my camera and wandered the neighborhood in search for great photos. Inspiration was everywhere. Houses were decorated for trick-or-treaters. It was Halloween Eve, after all.
Here’s a nice article by Sam Irwin, a writer from Baton Rouge. He writes about my stunt coordinating career here in Louisiana. CHECK IT OUT!
Celebrating 25 years, Belizaire the Cajun is the humble beginnings of Hollywood South. With the support of a couple of Hollywood heavyweights, Belizaire was filmed solely in Lafayette, Louisiana using only local cast and crew members. With the exception of Hollywood movies filmed on location in Louisiana, this was perhaps the first one that originated in Louisiana utilizing local talent as opposed to bringing in a full production company from L.A. or New York to tell a story about Louisiana.
For additional historical perspective: Belizaire the Cajun’s Silver Anniversary
It’s been too long since my last blog. It’s been crazy busy here in New Orleans and blogging has been far from my mind. By “crazy busy” I mean Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day, festivals, music, food, friends and so on. I don’t mean WORK! Life is good here whether I’m working or not. It was a good move.

Ah. They make me so proud! HA!
WMC Website says: “Simply put, there is a crisis of representation in the media. We live in a racially and ethnically diverse nation which is 51% female, but the news media itself remains staggeringly limited to a single demographic. While women hold less than 3% of decision-making “clout” positions in media, they also earned only 25% of all new media jobs created from 1990 -2005, despite constituting 65% of all undergraduate and graduate journalism and mass communications students.”
Please watch both short videos.
I add, only 15% of all stunt work in film is performed by women. Less than 1% of all working Stunt Coordinators in the film business are women. These are shameful statistics that need to be changed.
