Quick Fire Questions With Consetta Parker

This weeks quick fire questions are kindly being answered by Consetta Parker.
Consetta appears on the excellent Full Of Sith podcast along with Tha Mike Pilot and Bryan Young.  As if that wasn't enough, she is also a media consultant for none other than Rancho Obi-Wan.  Talk about keeping busy!
With all that going on it was nice of Consetta to spare a few minutes to answer our questions.  So lets fire away.

1 You're stuck in a swamp on Dagobah.  What one movie, TV show, album and book would you take?
My initial thought is I’d take The Empire Strikes Back (for landscape references and it’s my favorite Star Wars film), my Buffy DVD’s, The Monkees “listen to the Band” CD boxed set  and my Jedi Journal I’ve been keeping since the fourth grade.

2 If you could invite any three people (alive or not, fictitious or not) to a dinner party, who would they be?
Han Solo, Tony Stark and Chief Brody. (if it could be non-human and were more of a picnic in the park: Pegasus,  Shadowfax and a TaunTaun)

Close Encounters

3 What is your favourite John Williams soundtrack?
It’s a tie between The Empire Strikes Back and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

4 If you were invisible for a day what would be the first thing you would do?
There’s a good chance I’d immediately go outside in our backyard, sit down in the middle of our “Squirrel Village” we set up, surround myself with 10 lbs. of shelled peanuts, and patiently wait.

5 When was the last time you cried?
Last night when my husband and I were reminiscing about the day we met at Skywalker Ranch. (happy tears!)

6 What is your biggest fear?
I’m very fortunate that I have an extremely good memory. I can recall things from when I was a toddler. The thought of losing my memory and not knowing my loved ones and all we’ve shared is quite disturbing to me. (as far as phobias go I’m terrified of spiders and clowns. So a spider dressed as a clown would push me over the edge)

7 What was the most embarrassing moment of your life?
I was working an event for Disney and had no chance to eat or rest the entire day. After 10 hours of going non-stop I ended up fainting right in front of Jerry Bruckheimer.  (an assistant from Disney caught me before my head hit the floor. I was carried off to the side and propped up against the wall where they force fed me chocolate and Diet Coke till my blood sugar came back up. I’m still proud though that the event was a huge success and Jerry was very happy!)

8 Excluding search engines, what three website would you choose if no other websites were available?
9 Do you have any guilty pleasures?
The only one I’m willing to share is the fact that if I could only eat out at one place the rest of my life it would be McDonald’s ;)

10 What are you looking forward to the most in the next six months?
Everything 

11 What is your most treasured possession?
He’s not a possession but I treasure my dearest Garet more than anything. (he’s the stormtrooper I married )

12 What is your biggest regret?
Life is too short to have regrets. I prefer to look up and forward rather that down and back.

13 what are you most proud of?
I got a bad feeling about this.
Following my passion: When I was a little girl I discovered Star Wars. It sparked my imagination and brought me an immense amount of happiness. For years I wished I’d someday meet Han Solo and find a boy that loved Star Wars as much as me. Over the years many people have tried to convince me that I needed to “grow up” and let go of my childhood fascinations. I have done my best to never let any one person or situation steal the joy away from me that I found when I was a child.  I followed my passion and because of that my life has been a galactic adventure and I’m thankful for that every day.  *and my wishes came true. I’ve met Harrison Ford twice and I married a boy that I met at Skywalker Ranch…he was dressed as a stormtrooper.

14 What is your favourite Spielberg movie?
Depending on the day it’s either Jaws (Because I had a massive crush on Roy Scheider), Close Encounters of the Third Kind (since I grew up in Indiana and saw when I was little. I was convinced the Indiana scenes were filmed in the field behind our house), E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (because I still keep Reeses Pieces on hand just in case) or Raiders of the Lost Ark (because Harrison Ford has always been my hero). (today it’s Raiders)

15 Where can people keep in touch or follow you?


Thanks to Consetta for taking the time to answer our questions.  I would love to hear more about that Jerry Bruckheimer incident.  Next week we have Ed Dolista from IndyCast, be sure to check it out and also check out our previous quick fire posts with Jimmy Mac, Chris Macht and Jim Beller.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
