Welcome to Soap and Bubbles and the Premiere of Season 2!
This project has been a labor of love and a celebration of the shows I grew up watching - vintage soap operas and sitcoms from the 70s and 80s. I guess you could say Soap and Bubbles is a "soap-com".
To say that I am an "amateur film maker" would be quite a stretch of the imagination.
I have no professional or even amateur experience in television or film, other than as an audience member. My background is in theatre - acting, directing and producing and I currently work full time as a costume designer and a Vintage Clothing Boutique owner. I write too, as a hobby.
During the heart of the pandemic, I got this crazy idea that I would write and film a little show that I dreamed up, despite having no knowledge of filming anything and no financial resources. With the proverbial shoe-string budget and a little help from my talented friends, Soap and Bubbles, Season 1 was born and premiered on YouTube last September. You can catch up on Soap and Bubbles Season 1 and view all ten mini episodes by clicking "More" on the tool bar of the Home Page here!
Since the first season, I kept dreaming up more vintage soapy hijinks and filmed the current season over this past spring and summer. These all-new episodes take place on Christmas Eve, 1976, six months after the final episode of Season 1. All of your favorite characters are back at O' Ryan's Pub, with a couple of great new additions.
This time around, we had the same budget of zero, the same group of talented friends and we filmed it like an old-time soap, with little to no rehearsal and a very short filming session. I want to thank everyone who worked in front of the camera and behind the scenes for co-creating this dream with me. I am grateful to EVERYONE who helped me in any way.
I invite you to take this nostalgic, eight-episode journey with me and watch what happens back in 1976.
Happy Holidays to all of you and thank you for watching!
