Old Friends and Old Times:

When I was a kid I went to this great elementary school. There were a few kids that always stuck out in my mind as really great kids. Well when it came for Carl and I to pick names for our kids we decided not to name our kids after any family member, which was not like everyone else in our family.
So I looked at my husband and myself. I figured that if I had boys they might end up reddish haired and fair because my husband was. I thought of the mix and for some reason I kept going back to reddish blond haired kids with fair complexions in my mind. So I thought if we had sons I would like to name them Alex and Cameron. Both names were for boys I knew in elementary school who were very kind kids and funny kids with the reddish tone to their hair. I figured if I named them after good kids they would become good kids. Well, we have GREAT kids! Alex was named after Alex Masterton and Cameron was named after Cameron Mortimer.

Alex Masterton and I had a great opportunity to take extra school on Saturdays for fine art, so we got exposed to things the average elementary student didn't get. Those were the days...... I was a good artist, he was super awesome!

Well by chance, this weekend I connected with Alex Masterton through facebook and I am very glad to see he pressed himself to stay creative (seeing I never saw him again after grd 8 and wasn't sure).
Please take a moment to hit the link below and catch a glimpse of what Alex Masterton is up to these days.
Producer and Director of Mr. Video (2007) a 15min short film. Owner of the production company Destiny Pictures.
If you have seen this film in the UK, I would like to know your opinion. If you have seen this short in the US I would like to know your opinion too.
I have noticed online that Rogers Cable ran something about the short, or ran the short here, but their site is stale now...

I am so excited by this.
Seeing Cam is heading to film school and Alex is the computer geek who is always trying to tech out the film technology for us here....
The world seems really small today! And I am really really glad I picked this great Karma name for our Al.

I will see if Alex will sell me a copy of Mr. Video so I can see it.
The trailer is cool!
Upp I see a film night at the Tucker house soon!
