Shoot 'Em Up is a Los Angeles based show produced by Gary Buchler and Monte LaMonte that explores the evolution of a story, to a script, to a film & takes place over three events during a three-month period. Starting out with a night of storytelling, 6 storytellers tell true stories from their lives. Here's my story and here's the movie!

PIT TO LAX: MY STORY WORTHY LIFE For Christine Blackburn, the youngest of six kids growing up in Pittsburgh, the idea of living in Los Angeles and working in the entertainment industry seemed like a dream (or at least something you only saw on television). Instead she took a circuitous route—first as a flight attendant, then in the Peace Corps—with some unforeseen setbacks: a rare cancer diagnosis at age 31. With a survivor’s renewed sense of urgency, Blackburn finally found the courage to take the leap to Los Angeles and pursue her life as a performer, or at least... as a contestant on The Dating Game. PIT to LAX: My Story Worthy Life is a series of memories about loving, losing, and letting go, which will inspire you and stay with you long after you’ve left its last pages. 

Christine has written a frank and funny collection of stories. You’ll be laughing out loud one minute and then she’ll hit you with a poignancy that you didn’t see coming. Reading this book is like getting sucker punched in the best way possible.
