Renee’s New Movie Infinity Shown At The Xena Con

Renee has a new movie called Infinity coming out soon and she shared a clip from the movie at the convention. Infinity is about a family and how they deal with the father who has suffered Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) after coming home from Iraq.

Horseredhead from AUSXIP Talking Xena ROC Chat describes the movie as “Incredibly dark, shocking, sad and unfortunately very realistic in that things happening in the film really do happen in real life even though it's not based on a true story. It was written by Barry Bostwick, he and Trey were both at the con.”

There is a discussion about the movie on AUSXIP TX ROC Chat

Renee Interview With Star Scoop On Beyond The Farthest Star


Renee is interviewed by The Star Scoop on the upcoming Beyond The Farthest Star movie:

One film we're excited about this year is Beyond the Farthest Star, which stars Renee O'Connor. Beyond the Farthest Star is a story where "a twist of fate brings the national spotlight to a forgotten Texas town and a once famous preacher has an opportunity to regain his former glory or seize one last chance to restore his fractured family."

Producer Ben Dane tells us it's a "universal story that reaches all's so relatable. Everyone has family struggles." O'Connor's character, Maureen Wells, struggles with a 17 year secret that she's held from her family. Says Dane, "The performances are so powerful. Wait until you see Renee. She's amazing."

We're thrilled about the stellar quality of actors involved and we talked with one of the movie's stars (not to mention one of our most popular interviewees), Renee O'Connor, to learn more about the film, her role and what she's up to next.

Message From Renee For Convention Attendees

Creation Entertainment sent out the following note from Renee regarding the upcoming 2011 Xena Convention which starts tomorrow

SPECIAL ADVANCE TIP: DO NOT MISS RENEE'S STAGE APPEARANCE AS SHE HAS SOMETHING REALLY FUN PLANNED that YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS! ALSO, we have a special message from Renee about her workshop (which you can get tickets for at registration on Friday):

Hello Friends!

I have an incredible passion for bringing about the deep inner awareness I see in others, and helping people to trust this inner sense, allowing it to be the guide on a moment to moment basis. This work is a personal journey I have been on for the past seven years now, allowing me to see my desire to activate it even more on a global scale. My introduction class at the Xena convention is a mere glimpse into the deeper work we facilitate now around the world. If you choose to participate in this class, I do ask that you join the peer process created in the room, as Awareness works when we can recognize our willingness to look inward, deeply and honestly. I hope to see you there!

With Love,

Xena Returning to Australian TV in February 2011


Our favourite warrior and her bard are back on Australian network TV. A decade ago Xena was on channel 10 where they sliced and diced the show. The show was able to be seen in on reruns on Foxtel Cable on TV1 for a long time but now she's back on network TV. This time she's on 7Mate - the new digital channel by Channel 7 which is catered towards guys (can't figure out how Xena figures into this unless it's the leather and blue eyes that gets them <g>) has posted the following info regarding the return:

Another classic TV show is coming to 7mate: Xena Warrior Princess. Xena begins on 7mate at 3pm Thur Feb 3, and continues 3pm daily. It will also be on at 3am from Monday (morning) Feb 7.

Fanfic Art - New Cover by Calli - The Jess & Dev Tales


I absolutely love this story by Missy Good so Calli created a cover for it! Many thanks to Calli for the cover.

Click here to view cover and read parts 1 - 4 of this ongoing story

The Story of Humanity: The Jess and Dev Tales is set in the near future post apocalyptic - the earth has been devastated by weather. Human society on the planet is reduced to fighting for survival over seaweed and scraps. Jesslyn (Jess) Drake is a warrior for that time - an agent who works for one of two 'sides' (think cold war) and is sent into conflict to steal scientific secrets or otherwise prevent that 'side' from making advances that would let them prosper. There are no good or bad guys.

Dev is Biological Alternative, set 0202-164812, instance NM-Dev-1 is a type of human being developed on a space station in orbit who can accept direct brain programming to suit them for a specific job and is the first of her kind to be made into an agent to join this side. Has a somewhat slave status and no one really wants them around but is given to Agent Drake who is arm twisted into giving it a try.
