Just a tease...

It is November 1st, 2014!  Do you know what that means?
The countdown to the official reveal of my 2014 Holiday Card has begun!

This year I figured I'd do something special for you all (I got to keep raising my game, right?!).  So I have a Holiday Video Teaser for you!
Yup, you read that right... I have a Video Teaser for my 2014 Holiday card!!  What?  That's totally normal!  To have a video teaser, teasing your holiday card!
Hey, if you are going to go to all this trouble... you might as well blow it out of the park, right?

I wanted to also take a moment to thank all the amazing teams I've worked with over the past 7 years!  Teams who have added their time and creativity and helped me create these amazing images! I can't believe I've been doing these Holiday cards for that long now!  Time really does fly!

In alphabetical order, the amazing peeps involved with THIS year's image and the previous six years!  Thank you!

Walter Barnett, Laura Basci, Ann Benson, Jamie Dedeaux, Katie Elhoffer, Jodi Jeffers, Lara-Noelle Kay, Nicole Kent, Camille LaBry, Ricky Middlesworth, Frankie Payne, Stuart Pettican, Mark Reyes, Brett Richards, Gavin Rolph, Brenda Salome Salamone, Mike Thomas, Ettore Zuccarelli

Blended Holidays

Maybe you haven't noticed... but the holidays really have started to blend together...
Christmas is already being sold and marketed well before Halloween has even happened.  Thanksgiving is just the moderator in between Halloween and Christmas, trying to keep them separate but failing and in the process almost completely ignored as the two power house holidays battle it out for your attention and for your money (I mean Black Friday is probably more "popular" as far as holidays go then Thanksgiving now!).
I guess Disney has known for years what's really up (don't they always)... it really is the Nightmare Before Christmas!

In that spirit, I share this great gif!  Happy Halloween (almost).  Happy Countdown to Christmas.

Happy Paulidays!

It's Christmas in August!

Why not, right?

As summer comes to its eventually (and sad) end.  I figured, why not add a little Holiday Magic to your Summer heat!??  Right?  Do you feel me?

I don't know.... maybe it's because I've begun working on 2014's Holiday Card, and so I have snow and holiday cheer on the mind?  Or... maybe it's because I'm over heated from these summer temperatures?  Who knows!?
But either way....I felt like it was a great time to share my holiday short film, Everything Twas again.  If you haven't seen it yet, or even if you have, cool down, check it out!
Enjoy, and celebrate some holiday August!

"I wonder where you are...."

Well, wonder no more!  HELLO can now easily be found, both on YouTube AND NOW on Vimeo!!

Haven't seen HELLO on YouTube yet?  Well now there is NO excuse to not check out my short film/music video hybrid!! No excuse!
The film Hello creatively uses Lionel Richie's iconic song of the same name to tell a new and surprising story.
I am very proud of the results and of my team!  I've been so thankful for all the kind words and people sharing their thoughts and opinions with me!  Join the conversation!  I would love to hear your thoughts after you watch Hello!!
Also, be sure to check out my previous blog chatting about HELLO and it's content HERE

High Strung plays my hometown!

EXCITING NEWS!! (especially for all my Sacramento Friends and Family):
The short film, High Strung (directed by John Gehrke), that I have a part in and stars Tommy Cooley with Hair & Makeup by Simply Vanity by Lara-Noelle has been accepted to another film festival! This time, the film will be playing in my hometown at the Sacramento Film & Music Festival (shockingly, it's the FIRST TIME I've ever had a film play in Sacramento!?!?)

High Strung plays at 10pm on Saturday, August 23rd as part of their "late night" short group!! It will be playing at the AMAZING Crest Theater, and I'm hoping my local peeps will go and support it and the team!! (The fact that it's playing at The Crest Theatre is reason alone to go see it!! I love the Crest!)
Go to their website, for more info and tickets!!

*Unfortunately, I myself will not be able to attend (I'll be out of the country on another project) but I'm looking forward to hearing all about it from those who attend!!

Officially ended.

The Heisted Kickstarter campaign has officially ended, and we did not make our goal.
To the 38 individuals, in total, who, with action supported and pledged to Heisted, I want to personally and sincerely thank you.  Thank you for supporting my project.  I know each and every one of your names and will always remember and be grateful for your support.
I also want to say, to those 38 backers, that this is not the end of Heisted.  This is just the end for now.  The silver lining is that the idea of Heisted has been created, and that can’t be undone.  Heisted will someday, in a different way, be made.

To everyone, I believe creativity and art must be supported…financially.  Artists make their art for the love of it and for you to enjoy, to be challenged by, stimulated, inspired, and to be entertained.  This process is not free of cost.  An audience has a responsibility in this process.  Even in this digital age of ours, content-good content-costs money to make.
Why should art be consumed at no cost to the viewer and at all cost to the artist?

Remember to dream.  Remember to follow your dreams (with action). 
Remember that dreaming is where everything tangible and real was born.
Keep the Faith.

I do.
