On the Set of “That’s My Boy” an #AdamSandler film

I promised everyone I would write about what it is like to be on  movie sets and so  I would be remiss if I did not mention Adam Sandler films. I have been on two of his films – Grown-Ups and That’s My BoyBoy and it is like nothing I have ever been on before. First of all – they are very large budget films and so there are a lot of cast, crew,  fancy machines and cameras. Also – there are a lot of extras.  In Grown-Ups, I spent the day playing at Water Wiz with hundreds of other kids while the cameras rolled. In “That’s My Boy” I was in a large auditorium with close to 1,000 other kids. They had painted the entire auditorium of the school where the set was to represent a different school and era. Big budget films are fun to be on because of all the excitement and Mr.Sandler ALWAYS takes the time to say “hi” to the crowds. He is very personable and nice.  A very quality man and a  true star!  Also – because these sets are so large – I was never able to spot myself in the actual Grown-ups movie and although That’ s My Boy has not come out yet, I can just about guarantee I won’t be in it as I was “deep background” which means there was a very large crowd and I was behind a lot of others. Also – I do not have pictures of the set as they are strickly forbidden. Some of my other movies – we were allowed to take pictures but if you tried here, you might find yourself not invited back.

I heard a rumor that Adam Sandler might come back to Boston and film some more blockbusters. I sure hope so and now that I am a member of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) I’ll keep my fingers crossed that I perhaps I will get a featured “extra” role or small speaking part. Any other actor who reads this knows that the likelihood of this is rare, but dream big and reach for the stars – who knows – it could happen, right?

Update Jan. 27th – just announced – Adam Sandler will be coming back to Boston to film Grown Ups II!!! Fingers crossed I make it my third Sandler film 🙂

So excited to team up with fellow actress and peer Taylor Hay and producer Seng2kx for a anti-bullying PSA!

Hey everyone – I am really excited to announce that I am teaming up with awesome actress Taylor Hay and several other actors to put together an anti-bullying PSA. What is so great about this project is Taylor and I have met through a few actor related networking sites but have never met face to face! The power of coming together though the use of modern technology and a common cause! Taylor is on the West Coast and I am on the East (Boston) so this will be an official Bi-Coastal production. More importantly, we are coming together to fight bullying. Taylor will be filming her segment on the west and then mail dropping her part to the producer who will then splice the footage in with the rest of the actors. AMAZING! Seng2kx Productions is going to do an awesome job pulling this all together. I can’t wait to see it! Below is the official PR announcement and if you want to learn more about Taylor Hay or Seng2kx productions click on the pictures below.

Boston, Jan. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Seng2kx Productions , a Boston-based Film and Entertainment production company, today announced  Meredith Prunty, age 16, well known  Boston based actress and anti-bully advocate will be anchoring and co-producing  an anti-bullying  PSA titled  “Change Things”.  This PSA is a unique Bi-Coastal collaboration that will include contributions from actors on both the East and West coasts.  “The Entertainment Industry can be very competitive – it is great to have my peers coming together to help me spread the word”, Meredith said. Included in the group of actors is LA based teen actress Taylor Hay (Yes, Virginia TV Series). Taylor was eager to sign on to this project despite her busy schedule as she shares a common bond with Meredith – both girls are anti-bully advocates. Taylor Hay is a cancer survivor as well and she and Meredith have nurtured a friendship after meeting on a networking site despite never having met in person. Meredith Prunty, “These Public Service Announcements bring much-needed awareness to the growing problem of violence faced by teens today and we feel that it is important for teens to work together to help stop this growing problem”. 

The PSA is will be released spring 2012 and will be available for viewing at seng2kx.blogspot.com and on selected television broadcasts. For additional information please contact Seng2kxproductions@gmail.com.
