Hello Beautiful People ♥
I am THRILLED beyond words to share with you my birthday news: My first film producing effort, a short called YOU ARE WHAT I WANT, has been accepted into the 2nd International London Lift-Off Festival to take place this November in London, England!!!

Its absolutely awe inspiring to think that a film we started over a year ago (and what I was just beginning to fear had been a total waste of money because most everyone who "knew" said it wasn't quite "festival material") is now scheduled to be screened for an International audience... IN LONDON!!!!

In the past I've been too proud to ask for help, but the hours spent creating this film with friends, our beautiful director & crew has shown me how much better it is to humble myself and allow others to co-create this expression of life with me than it is to struggle all by myself. So, I am taking it as a sign that I've received this exhilarating news the week of my birthday... and I am humbly reaching out to you for a love donation to help get me get there and afford to stay through the career building opportunities available during the festival week.

The Filmmaking Process:
"You are what I want" was written and directed over a year ago by one of the most talented and brave people I know- Brian Jordan Alvarez. I met him while studying at USC and admired him from afar the way I imagine someone would've admired a young Andy Warhol. When he asked me to be his friend and produce his movie it felt like the biggest compliment anyone had ever given me and followed through with.

The Official Synopsis:
"A hook up turns into an obsession in this vibrant and gritty short film about the questionable fallout of seeking one’s happiness in other people."

The London Lift-Off Festival Featured our trailer on their Blog! Descibing our film as ---"A dynamic kaleidoscopic... story..and the acting is wonderful" -- an example of the type of film that "felt real" and was exactly what they were looking for-- a film that is "stimulated and engrossing" not just pretty to look at because of high production costs. http://www.londonlift-off.com/blog/how-do-i-get-into-a-film-festival/

Here's where you can get involved:
If you believe that dreams come true becase we co-create them, if you believe that we can create a new world through our changing perspectives, then lets tell this new story together! Help us do that by supporting what we were born to do: Create & share!! In this case, our film --which comes from a deep love and faith in humanity-- with those who are brave enough to listen to the "other." I'm lifting off to London to share this experience with the world...because of YOU.
