« on: January 10, 2016, 03:24:23 PM »
I... don't know what this is. A series of different movies, or something? :shrug2:


Had fun at the Hallmark TCA event the other nigh- excited about our upcoming Mystery Wheel together! Will be fun to act again - my character is a fun one ... Will share details soon

I have no idea what this is. :/  Google says it's movies, but nothing about Jewel being in one just yet.

From the September EDA Inclusive:

Quote
I have also been busy preparing for the first of several movies I will film for Hallmark channel, called The Fixer Upper Mystery series, where each movie builds on the last one. I play a female contractor named Shannon Hammer, whose keen eye for detail and natural curiosity helps her become a good mystery solver! It should be a lot of fun to film. Kase and I head to Toronto to film for the month of October.

Donna - get your stalking gear prepped!  :P

Ha! Well I can try. Toronto is a big place though, there's lots of places to film.. downtown, and the GTA (Greater Toronto Area). If anyone hears of anything more specific about where she might be filming, let me know! I'll have to follow her twitter closely.

However... if she decides to put on a CONCERT while she's in town... I'm soooo there!!!!  :angel:

Leaving tomorrow for a Toronto weekend. I know the odds are slim, but exciting to know Jewel is lurking around somewhere. Has anyone got any details about where exactly she is filming this Hallmark thing? Her twitter and insta are kinda vague...  :cool:

http://www.wnypapers.com/news/article/featured/2017/01/05/127153/jewel-headlines-hallmark-mystery-movie-fallsview-casino-concert

Quote
Fans of the Alaska-born performer can see two different sides of Jewel the weekend of Jan. 12-14. On Thursday, she will perform an 8:30 p.m. concert inside the Fallsview Casino's world-class Avalon Theatre in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Three nights later, Jewel stars in "Framed for Murder: A Fixer Upper Mystery" at 9 p.m. on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel.

The former promises "an evening of musical storytelling and infectious vocals," with singles including "Who Will Save Your Soul," "You Were Meant for Me," "Foolish Games," "Hands" and "Intuition." The latter is described accordingly: "When Lighthouse Cove renovation expert Shannon Hughes (Jewel) suspects foul play in the death of her friend and neighbor, a famous crime reporter ("Eureka's" Colin Ferguson) who is also her new client, pitches in to help her get to the bottom of the mystery surrounding the man's death - and the $10 million in jewels that might be hidden somewhere in his house."

The film is based upon the novels of New York Time's bestselling-author Kate Carlisle. Hallmark has pegged "Framed for Murder" as the start of a new mystery movie franchise.

On her way to New York City for a whirlwind media tour, Jewel shed a little light on her upcoming endeavors.

Q: Tell us about this film project - what excited you about the script and what attracted you to the role?

Jewel: I was excited about my character and how it incorporated a bit of musical background into the story, as well as being able to have some input into the role.

Q: The Hallmark channels have upped the ante in recent years in terms of storytelling and casting. What can you say about working with Hallmark, and would you do it again?

Jewel: I will most certainly do it again. I really enjoy being in one place for a month (during filming); it's very different than riding a bus around and being in 28 cities in a month like on tour.

Movie's done! Pick up! (April 2, anyway)

I don't know why Hollywood has to spend years and the equivalent of the GDP of a small nation to make a movie when it can be done in 15 days, like this second one she just finished...

She fessed up about the first movie's wig in the March EDA Inclusive, too  :lol:

While a lot of the BIG BUDGET films that Hollywood cranks out has a lot of bloat in their budget - with the change in economics these days a million dollar budget is the "new norm" for a small, possibly independent film.  A 30 day shoot, is actually rough.  There is a ton of stuff to cram in.  Plus, once a film is in the can, it goes into editing and post production.   That can take an exceptionally long time.  Plus those production houses, also require lots o' cash.

In all honesty, comparing anything that is made for TV to a Hollywood film or even an indie shot film is like apples and oranges.

There was a Wall St Journal interview, too, but videos look to be behind a paywall on their site. However, we were able to watch it by opening the WSJ Videos with our Roku stick, if that's available to anyone else.



But the bigger news is this! I'm seeing the word, "performance" here!!

Big Picture: Jewel makes herself at home in Victoria

Quote

Jewel Kilcher says she can understand that some fans might jump to conclusions about why she’s starring in Hallmark’s Fixer Upper franchise.

The actor, singer-songwriter and author known as Jewel plays Shannon Hughes, a contractor who solves mysteries while restoring Victorian homes in the movies based on Kate Carlisle’s bestsellers.

The Utah-born entertainer doesn’t dismiss assumptions that Fixer Upper might be a wish-fulfilment project for someone who was raised on a homestead without heat or running water in small-town Alaska. She was also homeless for a year while busking her way across the United States after graduation.

However, there are other reasons she chose to do the series that has brought her back to Victoria to shoot the third installment, she said.

“I liked the character because she stands for two things I really like,” said Jewel, who, with director Mark Jean and his crews, returned to the home in Fairfield that depicts her residence.

Other Victoria locations include a Tudor-style home in Rockland, the new TV movie’s architectural centrepiece.

Wearing skinny jeans, a cream-coloured blouse and a brown suede jacket, Jewel, 43, chatted during a break from shooting a scene in a Sidney parking lot where her character and crime reporter Mac Sullivan (Colin Ferguson) corner an elusive suspect.

“It’s about how you’re learning to rely on yourself, whether you’re male or female, and self-reliance is how I was raised. And it’s about following your intuition, not ignoring that little voice in you that knows when something is off. It’s a hard voice to learn to listen to, and we usually pay a heavy price when we ignore it.”

Not surprisingly, the series set in idyllic Lighthouse Cove has been compared with Murder She Wrote, the CBS mystery series starring Angela Lansbury as a mystery writer who solves crimes in Cabot Cove.

“When my friend heard I was doing the series, she gave me a T-shirt saying ‘Angela Lansbury is my spirit animal,’ ” Jewel said with a laugh. She is a huge Lansbury fan and said she would love to have the stage and screen legend make an appearance in the Hallmark show.

Like the actor, singer and dancer of Broadway fame, Jewel is a triple threat, as well known for her poetry and philanthropy, with public housing and breast cancer among causes about which she is passionate.

“In [Lansbury’s] day, it was common to act, sing and dance, but let’s not focus on my dancing just yet,” Jewel said, admitting that switching gears from music to acting is a challenge.

“It’s a very different discipline. It’s actually very nerve-wracking,” said Jewel, whose multi-genre musical career took off after the release of her 1995 debut album Pieces of You.

“It’s a very technical job. You have to stop here, land here, pivot on that line. It’s a very choreographed thing that has to look very natural.”

It’s not as if she’s charting new territory, however. While her fame as a musician overshadowed her early aspiration to have a dual career, she has pulled off some impressive acting feats.

“My music career was breaking and I was very busy, working 365 days a year,” she said, recalling part of the reason she didn’t make her big-screen acting debut until 1999, in Ang Lee’s Ride with the Devil.

“I made a conscious decision. I felt creatively fulfilled with my music and I felt like acting was an amazing bonus, but not a necessity in my life. Also having a life was a necessity, so I chose my life,” said Jewel, who has a six-year-old son, Kase, from her marriage to ex-husband Ty Murray, a professional rodeo cowboy. “If you look at time and your life as a garden, and what you water is what grows, and you want something other than your career to grow, then you’ve got to spend time watering your life,” she said.

She was also disillusioned to learn so many roles women were being offered in the 1990s were in sexually explicit movies.

“You’d go to auditions when you had to suddenly reveal, when you dropped your book, that you were bare-chested.”

It was worth the wait to appear opposite Tobey Maguire in Lee’s Civil War drama, she said.

Her performance as a war widow drew praise from the late film critic Roger Ebert, who wrote: “She’s an actress here, not a pop star trying out a new hobby.”

It was being cast as country music legend June Carter Cash in the Lifetime movie Ring of Fire five years ago that rekindled her desire to pursue acting, said Jewel, who also appeared as herself in Walk Hard (2007).

“I came to realize that I could do a movie in a month and still scratch that itch, which I so enjoy,” said Jewel, whose popular new franchise gives her the freedom to do that while maintaining her concert schedule.

All going well, Front Street Pictures hopes to shoot two or three more franchise entries here each year in partnership with Muse Entertainment, said vice-president of production Allen Lewis.

While watching the "behind the scenes" video (on the same page as the preview referenced above) I couldn't help but chuckle when Colin Ferguson marvels as he says Jewel was "off book" (meaning she knew all her lyrics lines) for the entire movie.

I'm a fan of irony... ;)
