Frank Gravatt was born in the San Francisco Bay Area. He began sculpting clay models at a young age and excelled in his craft. Horror movies, both old and new, have always been a fascination of his and Frank started sculpting monsters, and working with makeup to create the faces he saw in the movies. In his early career he began working at various retail chains until he landed a job in maintenance at Industrial Light & Magic. While working at ILM he brought his clay models in to the office for his coworkers to see, and soon landed a job making clay horses for Hallmark. From this point forward Frank went on the path to eventually be hired as a digital effects modeler and supervisor. His first movie was Casper (1995), although uncredited, he used his eye for detail and creativity from sculpting and began learning the trade of digital effects modeling. His first credited movie was Mars Attacks! as a digital modeler. Frank went on to create for movies such as Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, several Harry Potter films, Van Helsing, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and War of the Worlds. He was nominated for a Visual Effects Society (VES) award in 2003 for "Best Character Animation in a Live Action Motion Picture" for his work in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002). He was nominated again, and won, a VES award in 2012 for "Outstanding Animated Character in an Animated Feature Motion Picture" for his work in Rango (2011). Frank was again nominated for "Outstanding Animated Character in a Live Action Feature Motion Picture" in 2014 for his work in Pacific Rim. He has since worked on movies such as The Revenant, Captain America: Civil War, and Transformers: The Last Knight. Today, Frank continues to live in the Bay area with his five amazing kids and fiancée Trudie. It was a blast to reconnect with Frank and hear his incredible story.

If there's one thing we know how to do in Vancouver, it's make TV movies. Whether we're talking festive rom-coms, thrillers, or pulled-from-the-headlines dramas, Vancouver's film and television industry makes dozens of these films each year for companies like Hallmark, Lifetime, and Netflix. This holiday seasons, tens of millions of viewers all over the world will carve out time in their hectic lives for these TV movies. Maybe you're one of them. Maybe you've watched so many of these TV movies that you have an idea for one of your own. Maybe this idea could actually fly. A new book gives you tools to turn that maybe into a marketable screenplay. The book is Writing A TV Movie: An Insider's Guide to Launching a Screenwriting Career. It's the fascinating and highly readable tome from Vancouver-based screenwriter and author Roslyn Muir. In it, we learn about the needs and interests of Netflix, Lifetime, and Hallmark, and how these broadcasters work with production companies. We learn about the different genres, the nine-act structures of TV movies, the difference between a logline and a pitch document, and how and when to contact a production company or an entertainment lawyer.Writing A TV Movie: An Insider's Guide to Launching a Screenwriting Career is a comprehensive how-to book for an array of readers, from people who want to sell their scripts, to people who want to understand how the MOW side of the industry works, to fans who are curious about how their beloved TV movies coming together. In this engrossing conversation, Roslyn Muir speaks with Sabrina about the inner workings of the busy world of television movies. Episode sponsor: Fish Flight Entertainment

Inspiring Perspective in Parenting with Kay Wyma   She equips herself with strength [spiritual, mental, and physical fitness for her God-given task] And makes her arms strong. Proverbs 31:17 (AMP)   Questions We Discuss: 1. You believe kids thrive on high expectations and you became determined to parent your children "as if they were inherently strong, not inherently weak." . . how did this epiphany launch you into a 12-month experiment with your kids? 2. What list did you create for your "Top Twelve Things a Kid Should Know Before Flying the Wyma Coop"? 3. Now that some of your children have grown and launched, how do they look back on this experiment?   Kay Wyma is a mom, blogger, vodcaster, and author of four books in which she has tackled, with candor and humor, some of the troubling societal issues that impact us all. Kay's writings have led her to appearances on TODAY, CNN, Hallmark's Home & Family, and more. Before staying at home with her kids, she held positions at the White House and Bank of America. She lives in Dallas, Texas, with her husband and five kids. Connect with Kay at kaywyma.com or on Instagram @kaywyma.   At The Savvy Sauce, we will only recommend resources we believe in!

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.”   Ephesians 2:8–10 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God‘s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.“   Ephesians 2:13 “But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ.“   Philippians 1:6 “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Happy Thanksgiving to our American Listeners. Hope you enjoy your time with your family today. This week we are reviewing Nantucket Noel starring Trevor Donovan and Sarah Powers as well as A Christmas Together with You starring Niall Matter, Laura Vandervoort and Harry Linux. Not going to lie, both movies were duds for us this week. Nantucket Noel was boring. It is the same story trope Hallmark has done a million times of evil developer comes to tear down a landmark, and local business owner fights them. I do have to say the ending was different. Unlike the other movies with the same trope, the developer still had to tear down the wharf. There were some points that had us cracking up though, like a topless mermaid on the mural of a children's toy store and grandpa was a Grinch. lol. A Christmas Together with You was only slightly better. The storyline of the older couple was much better and in our opinion, Steve and Megan was an afterthought. Come on Hallmark, just tell the love story of an older couple without the younger one as a lead. It's a surprise. I give Nantucket Noel 1 star, Kayla gives it 2.5 stars. A Christmas Together with you got 2 stars from me. 3 from Kayla November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month. Kayla has epilepsy.

On November 3, 2008, I originally printed the essay below. We have reprinted it each year since on Thanksgiving weeks, with small alterations to address issues of the time, and it never ceases to garner a huge reaction. In 2021, more than ever, people need to be reminded of the positive roots of their nation…and despite what you're told seemingly on the daily, there are some positive things about America. The story below is 100% provably true (and footnoted accordingly), and the fact that most of you have never heard it before is scandalous to say the least:What really happened in 1621, at the first alleged “Thanksgiving feast” in what would later become America? Most Americans, sadly, don't know. If they even have an answer, it usually involves a fake narrative of Native Americans feeding starving pilgrims, only to be thanked years later with genocide. While it is true that Pilgrims and Indians ate together, both sides contributed equal amounts of food over the three-day feast…and while it is true that war led to Europeans conquering what later became America (which was quite literally the way of life in the 17th century), the true story and message of that first Thanksgiving is entirely lost and essentially covered up by focusing on what we're all supposed to view as America's racist founding. This country has been “woke” when it comes to Thanksgiving for decades.The real events of the original Thanksgiving are known and have been known since they happened, in 1621 thanks to a man named William Bradford, who most people learned about (wrongly) and have long since forgotten. Bradford was the governor of the Plymouth Colony and kept copious notes in real-time of all events occurring to the Pilgrims and is also, some believe, the true father of what later became known to be Capitalism, the American monetary system. Bradford's words have never been disputed. He wrote every day for more than 30 years as the Pilgrims assimilated into the colonies. Multiple sources confirmed more than most of his observations through simultaneous yet separate writings, all but irrefutably proving Bradford's perception of events that were happening right before his very eyes. Sadly, this is unimportant to history revisionists. To them (and most of them are teaching your children) it is more important to twist facts or make them up entirely so that people in America are taught to hate themselves and their country so that they will go through life atoning for, what in some cases are, non-existent mistakes of our genuinely horrific past. We've had, and continue to have, plenty of missteps on our way to forming a more perfect union; we don't need to fabricate stories of bigotry that never happened.The true story of Thanksgiving is actually one of the most inspiring tales of entrepreneurship and the human work ethic ever written. The true story of Thanksgiving highlights one of life's eternal truths; each of us has the ability to rise above challenges seemingly greater than our skills and not just survive, but thrive if we desire to do so. The true story of Thanksgiving is about choosing to win and refusing to lose; which in the 17th century meant choosing to live and refusing to die. The true story of Thanksgiving is not only not shameful, it is one of the building blocks upon which the greatest nation in Earth's history was built. And for those of you who are mistaught snowflakes that are somehow still reading, that nation is the United States of America. Still.In his 'History of Plymouth Plantation,' the governor of the colony, William Bradford, reported that the colonists went hungry for years because they refused to work in the fields. They preferred instead to steal food. He says the colony was riddled with "corruption," and with "confusion and discontent." The crops were small because "much was stolen both by night and day before it became scarce eatable." This, in my opinion, furthers the notion that, at our core, most humans are both lazy and unmotivated, yearning not for some prideful pursuit of earning our keep, but always choosing the path of least resistance if we are so allowed. People will always choose what's easiest if they're allowed to. If you give someone what they perceive to be free food and/or shelter in perpetuity, they will happily accept it, for it is in their nature to do as little as possible. Those of us with work ethic, drive, and a prideful belief that we must earn what we get were taught that, not born with it.In the famed and fabled harvest feasts of 1621 and 1622, we're told to believe that the Indians showed up and fed the settlers out of generosity, but this is absolutely false. The colonists had produced their own food, but very little. The prevailing condition during those years was famine and death. The first "Thanksgiving" was not so much a celebration as it was the last meal of condemned men.But in subsequent years something changed. The harvest of 1623 was different. In fact, in 1624, so much food was produced that the colonists were able to begin exporting corn.What happened?After the poor harvest of 1622, writes Bradford, "they began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop." They began to question their form of economic organization. As has happened countless times throughout history, desperate, starving men deemed that “good enough” was no longer good enough.Originally and prior to 1623, the pilgrims had operated under the “it takes a village” system and required that "all profits & benefits were to be placed in the common stock of the colony, and that, "all such persons as are of this colony, are to have their meat, drink, apparel, and all provisions out of the common stock." In other words, everything that everyone made, grew, harvested, invented, or found was placed in one big pile for the entire community to share. A person was to put into the common stock all that he could, and take out only what he “needed.” In other words, it didn't matter if a colonist had ever contributed a damned thing to the bounty; he or she was still entitled to his or her share of the food, drink, and clothing. That share, incidentally, was determined solely by individual greed and desire, and based in no way on them having earned any of it or having contributed anything to it. Each person helped themselves to as much of whatever they desired.This "from each according to his ability, to each according to his need" was an early form of socialism, and it is why the Pilgrims were starving in 1621 and1622. Bradford writes that "young men that are most able and fit for labor and service" complained about being forced to "spend their time and strength to work for other men's wives and children." So, the young and strong refused to work and the total amount of food produced was never adequate.To rectify this situation, in 1623 Bradford abolished socialism amongst the pilgrims. No longer would there be a community pool of rations. No longer would few work, so that all could have. He surveyed the land they held and he gave each household a parcel of land and told them they could keep what they produced, or trade it away as they saw fit. In other words, every family, every man, was required to produce his or her own food, shelter and clothing. It was left to each private landowner to decide whether or not they wanted to produce only enough for those who lived on their property, or whether or not they wanted to produce excess and sell or trade that excess to people less willing to work or take risk. In other words, he replaced socialism with a free market, and that was the end of famine, for they had more food than they could use in the years that followed. So, this year as you enjoy your Thanksgiving feast, take a moment to bear in mind that while the media, most educators, and Hallmark want you to believe that this is a day about celebrating friends and family, the truth is far greater than that. Thanksgiving is yet another day to celebrate the greatest nation on Earth and its stunningly noble beginnings. Enjoy the bounty that you have worked so hard to achieve; and if you somehow find yourself wanting for more this Thanksgiving, take a page from the Pilgrims and instead of singing the pitiful “woe is me, I'll never get ahead because life's not fair,” refrain, commit yourself to finding a way to thrive. And on Friday morning, work harder.https://sourcebooks.fordham.edu/mod/1650bradford.asphttp://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2010-11-24/gop-puts-the-lame-back-in-lame-duck-session-commentary-by-caroline-baumhttp://www.freedomworks.org/content/thank-capitalism-thanksgiving-daySee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

This week Kayla and I are back reviewing the last two movie premieres of the week: A Holiday in Harlem starring Olivia Washington, Will Adams and Tiffany Lifford, as well as One December Night starring Eloise Mumford, Brett Dalton, Bruce Campbell and Peter Gallagher. We praise the representation in A Holiday in Harlem. From an all black cast to a curvy beautiful lead. We also loved the neighborhood feel of this movie. The block party was the bomb and the fashion show was very much like a black fashion show. (That's how it was in my neighborhood growing up anyway. lol.) Also we are very critical of Hallmark's lack of advertising this movie, which in our opinion was a big contribution to its ratings. Kayla and I give this movie 4 out of 5 stars One December Night was heavy, touching upon subjects of alzheimer's, alcoholism, abandonment and cancer. But it was beautifully done. You cried and you laughed. The actors all had chemistry and was believable. Also this had the right amount of singing, which was a critic we had with Christmas in Harmony. We wanted more singing in the movie since it centered around a choir. This storyline, singing only in the end made sense since both men were reluctant to work together Kayla gives this one 5 stars. I give it 4.8. *My favorite is still Christmas in My Heart. Sunday, November 21, we will be releasing our interview with Nikki DeLoach about her newest movie, Five More Minutes.

At the end of each round, our panel of judges will decide who stays for the next round and who gets booted out in the cold.
