I love when people surprise me…
Last night I loaded my reel into Dropbox and sent myself a “test” link to see if it would work. But it didn’t. So I emailed Aaron, my super-nice Mac tech.
Hi — tried to open up a link from Drop Box, but got a message “Quick Time Player needs your permission to run.” How do I tell QT I’m fine with it?
I clicked on the movie and it played great in Safari. To enable QuickTime in Chrome, paste this into the browser address bar: chrome://plugins/
You’ll see a list pf plugins with checkboxes “always allowed”. Scroll down to QuickTime and check the checkbox. That will enable you to view QuickTime movies in Google Chrome. You may have to quit from Chrome and relaunch it. Hope that helps!
Solved it! Thanks for being there.
My pleasure. You certainly are a talented actress!
Wish you were a studio head.
You’ll be very successful. I am sending your reel to the head of a production company I work with.
What? That’s amazing! Thank you!! Are you allowed to tell me about them?
It’s a dynamic young company run by a couple of (well-funded) brothers who are about your age. It’s called ________ Productions. They have already had theatrical releases of a few of their films and are in high gear producing more. The _______ are wonderful people.
Aaron, you’re the Best! Ever! Thank you so-so-sooo much!
It’s weird and wonderful when unexpected kindnesses happen.
Fingers crossed, but no matter what, I think Aaron is a prince. (Not a prince like um Manly-Prince-Huntsman Chris Hemsworth, but a Prince in the inside, which any frog will tell you is way more important.
Now I’m going to think of how to pay it forward. I love when the world works out like this. Don’t you?
