Simon Pegg Panel SLC Fantasy Con 2014 SLC Fantasy Con 2014 www.FantasyCon.com Simon Pegg is most recently known for his roles in Star Trek, Shawn of the Dead, Mission Impossible 3 & 4, and Hot Fuzz. However, before there was stardom he was a writer and comedian.  He studied literature and theater at Stratford-upon-Avon College and the University of Bristol. Besides being an actor, Simon really understands crowds and was an absolute delight at the SLC Fantasy Con.  His stories were fun and heart-felt and you can tell he really loves his fans. In fact, rumor has it that this was Simon’s first ever appearance as a guest of a con. Simon Pegg shared experiences with Leonard Nimoy and fun times on set.  He talks about his friends and the pranks they played on set.  One of the funniest stories was the Neutron Cream joke.  Simon talks about his childhood, Nick Frost, script writing, growing up, and about the joy of being a geek. Here is a video of the interview.  The MC was Tony Toscano (Tony’s website). Here are some photos we took during Simon Pegg Panel SLC Fantasy Con 2014 MC’d by Tony Toscano (Tony’s website).    ...

Aaron Douglas – SLC Comic Con FanX

Aaron Douglas – Actor, Writer, Producer SLC Comic Con – Fan X Experience 2014 Salt Lake City Convention Center SaltLakeComicCon.com Ever wonder what’s really in the cockpit of a viper? Did you know that Katee Sackoff really is a girl? Aaron Douglas shares it all. In the video he talks about an experience when his son, at the age of 9, visited the set of Battlestar Galactica for the first time. Aaron also dishes on fellow cast members, Katee Sackoff and Edward James Olmos and how he landed the role of Chief Tyrol. Born in the Great White North (Canada, for those of us who aren’t from that local), Aaron stated how much he really loves Salt Lake City, comparing it to Canada.  He also quoted his friend Nick Bishop (an Australian actor), saying, “it’s sort of like taking a city from the Commonwealth countries and plunk[ing] it in the middle of America.” Since beginning his major acting career in 2000 with the TV Movie, “The Inspectors 2: a Shred of Evidence”, Aaron has appeared in well over 80 TV series and movies. A brief list of these appearances would include, “Dark Angel”, ” Stargate: Sg-1″, ” X-Men 2″, ” Andromeda”, “The Chronicles of Riddick” and, of course, Battlestar Galactica. Here’s a bit of trivia about Aaron Douglas’ normal audition process.  He will often audition himself by reading scripts for other people while they are competing for different movie roles. He says that in the hours he spends working with the directors, in the audition room, the directors get to know him and tend to give him little parts as...
SLC Pops Orchestra

SLC Pops Orchestra

SLC Pops Orchestra Music Video Website: Facebook Wesbite: YouTube We at Wesley Productions spend half of our time producing content for others.  We don’t mind because we do what we enjoy.  We were asked to participate in the latest Salt Lake City Pops Orchestra music video entitled “Skyfall”.  Yes, we had just finished a music video with TLC trio with the same song.  What can we say, Adele is an amazing singer and the song is quite popular.  Wesley Productions used our 18′ Kessler crane with revolution head to help the SLC Pops capture the excitement of this song.  When we arrived on set early in the morning we learned that Brittany James would be the singer highlighted in the video.  It was a blast.  To make things better, a train passed just as we started filming.  It couldn’t have been timed better. Here are a few videos from the video.     Check out the...
A Musical Christmas

A Musical Christmas

Wesley Productions was asked by Rock Canyon Studios and Refinement Records to help with a Christmas special called A Musical Christmas that quickly became dear to our heart.  All of us at Wesley Productions became heavily involved.  We provided help as Production Assistants, Craft Services, Gaffers, Lighting, Sound Assistants, directors, editors, and more.  Now, we didn’t do it all. There were many people involved and there were many recording sessions. However, as the show began to come together Wesley Productions ended up editing 90% of the show and conformed it for television and delivered it to ABC4 and CW30 here in Utah.  Brian Wesley, owner of Wesley Productions became a Producer for the show.  It was a blast. Yes, it was work and many many long hours.  However, the real fun came in working with Rock Canyon Studios, Refinement Records, and the singers and performers from all over Utah and California.  We are amazed at the talent. The show aired prime time on both ABC4 and CW30 on several days including Christmas Day.  A Musical Christmas was truly a labor of love.   Rock Canyon Studios’ website:  RockCanyonStudios.com Refinement Records has changed its name to Refinement Productions and you can find there website here: RefinementProductions.com Here is A Musical Christmas’ YouTube and Facebook pages: YouTube – AMusicalChristmas Facebook – AMusicalChristmas   Here are some various production videos.  None of these photos were taken by Wesley Productions.  To see more visit Facebook – AMusicalChristmas   The Brunson Brothers Adam Reader, Jamie Glaser, Matt Larson, Wally Minko Jamie Funk Crescent Super Band King Niko The Brunson Brothers Kenedee Le Prey Jason Scheff of Chicago We...
