Shamaine said to me, “Capture the shot that your eyes see.” And she’s right. Sometimes we’re so floored by a scene and then we try to improve …

Dont Be Late For Chicago’s ‘Save By The Bell’ Pop-Up!

Ok, so have you ever heard the theory that everything in the classic 90’s sitcom, Saved By The Bell, is just a dream in Zach Morris’ head? It’s true! (Or at least as true as anything that can be found on the internet.) Here’s the deal: Before SBTB, there was a show called Good Morning, Miss Bliss. Perky blonde 90’s kid Zach Morris was still the hero and hung …
