In 2006 we filmed to short films for Karma Creek Pictures.

This is our first time getting to use our new equipment including two XL2's (pictured left- Rusty is definitely happy we don't have to use Wal-mart cameras any more.)

The first film is a thriller entitled "Nonsense" in July of 2006. My Parents were gracious enough to let us crash there home for a weekend in which we spent every moment filming and very little time sleeping. Here are some behind the scene photos for everyone to enjoy.

A still photo from the final product!

I am super proud of Rusty and all that he has a accomplished. I am glad the we have something we can work on together and if it is meant to be Rusty will reach is goal of being a film director!

Right: Me and my hubby on set.

The next film we shot was in the Fall of 2006 down in Good ol' Thatcher Arizona with the help of many Theatre students who volunteered their late nights after rehearsal and shows to film a spoof comedy entitled "This Old Monster Tango". And now more production photos :)

So I have a lot more photos than I thought I did for this film and I had a really hard time deciding which photos to post.

Jeff as Dracula

Heath as Jason

Me "Assitant Directoring" Josh.

It never rains in Arizona except on days you don't want it too!

Super cool shot of the Director and my super hot Husband Rustin L. Odom.

Derek and Jace
silly as usual.

Not sure what
Derek and Studley
are up to in this photo...

Jason just would
not stop eating
the props!

shirt from our first full
length movie "Pizza Men"

Showing the Love

I don't think Rusty was a fan of the black lipstick.

I personally think I should wear it every day ;)

Ahhh, cold fake blood about to be
sprayed all over Deva.

And it wouldn't be a good movie with out
great stunt men like Tony here.

Just watch him in action!

He's hardcore!

I did a few stunts myself!

Super cool shot of Johnny Pants!

Jymie ready to
kick some serious
monster trash...

After she eats
her blue mash
potatoes of course.

Lounging around
waiting for the
next shot...

the late nights
were really
getting to us.

It was hard keeping our energy up for the
last shoot,in the desert, when it was
really cold and 3:00 in the morning.

But we managed it
and finally finished!

Look how pretty Rusty looks!

Well, that was definitely a lot more than I expected to put on this entry but it was really fun reliving some of those memories.

Our first year...

The first year went by really quickly. I can't say that anything too exciting happened that year except that we had a lot of fun with each other. Sure there were some rough days as we got use to each others little habits, but what marriage doesn't. here are some fun photos from our first year of marriage.
(we don't have many photos of the first year "computer ready" since we didn't have a digital camera.)
At the Arizona Renaissance festival March 2006

We had the opportunity to go to
Disneyland with Rusty's family
in March 2006.

We had a blast! It was my first time going to both parks with a three day pass. It was nice not having to fit it all in one day!

During the Spring and Summer of 2006 we were able to promote one of the films that we had been working on for the p
ast couple of years, "Pizza Men". It wasn't the greatest movie but it was our first full-length movie that we learned A LOT from. We premiered it in Thatcher, Arizona in the Eastern Arizona College Auditorium and sold about 100 DVDs of the film. The community was really supportive and we were able to have some coverage my the local newspaper.

We then showed the film at a movie theater in Show Low, Arizona. Here we had the participation of the local radio station (Rusty worked at a station in Safford and this was their brother station).

We were able to get a good amount of people out to the showing, plus Papa John's donated Pizzas to everyone who came out and saw the movie... who wouldn't want pizza and a movie? Our last destination for showing the film was Wilcox, Arizona. Not bad for our first film, but thankfully our movies got better...

Our first year of marriage went by very quickly, but it was wonderful!

Here is us out by my Dad's work when we were looking for locations to shoot another film.

And look.
One of my favorite pictures of my parents.
Aren't they cute?

And we reached the end of our first year of marriage together.

Closing off a year of marriage with a slice from the top of our wedding cake and a lot of milk to wash it down with.
