“Back in the day” of the lg15 community, we had a community-run online radio station called BreeFM. I was one of the DJs on the station and it was the highlight of my week to play music and chat with fellow community members. After 2 1/2 years, the station retired in March of [...]

Wow. I haven’t posted an update since the last 48 Hour Film Project back in February. Sorry dearies, I’ve been a tad bit busy. But I’ll try to do better…
…And it’s the perfect time to let you all know that Team Fortress Cinema, led by the always amazing Joey Harris, once again [...]
I had the absolute honor to work on a 48 Hour Film Project LA team called Team Fortress Cinema, lead by my very good friend Joey Harris. I have had the pleasure of working with Joey on many projects, including the upcoming atom.com web series Video Game Reunion, so when he was looking for [...]
Full Disclosure: I am the co-chair of the Communications Committee of the International Academy of Web Television as well as one of the candidates for election to the Board of Directors. However, the opinions expressed here are entirely my own.
It was announced this morning that due to flaws discovered in the IAWTV online voting [...]
I was recently nominated for the International Academy of Web Television Board of Directors. This is actually my second time being nominated and the honor is just as powerful for me this second time as it was the first. However, time and experience has made my reasons for accepting this time around different [...]
As many of you probably already know, I have the distinct honor of co-hosting a bi-monthly podcast called Knights of the Guild. It was created and is co-hosted by my great pal, Kenny, who I met on the set of season 2 of The Guild. He had a ton of experience in the [...]
I realize it has been a long while since I have posted anything here, even an update of what I have been doing. And you can take that two ways: 1) I’m too busy or 2) I don’t care. The answer will come in the point of view you take, what your opinion [...]
Stuart and I just got on board helping out with producing and assistant directing a romantic comedy short film called Bridesmaid #3. It’s been a while since I last ADed and even longer since I’ve worked on an independent film. In fact, I don’t think I’ve worked on a short film since September 12th, which was several years ago. But really, producing for low-budget film is very similar to producing for web series.
What’s really special about this project isn’t just that it’s well-written with a simple yet engaging story, though it always helps to enjoy the material you are working on, but how it is going about trying to put together funding for the project. Jessica Noboa, who is not only on the producing team but will also star in the film, has put together some fundraising events that are not only enjoyable but that take advantage of talents at her disposal and fit in with the theme of the film.
The first of two events is a Massage and Mimosa day. Jessica is a massuse and she is using those skills to provide a relaxing afternoon of inexpensive massages and free mimosas. I know I’ll be there and boy will my aching muscles thank me for it! And 100 percent of the proceeds go straight back into making the film.
My younger sister Kimberly is a member of the The National Cervical Cancer Coalition (NCCC). The National Cervical Cancer Coalition (NCCC) supports women and family members battling the personal issues related to HPV and cervical cancer. HPV has affected my family and so my sister’s involvement in the organization is something I am extremely proud of and I try to support her in any way that I can.
Now is one of those times and you can help. The NCCC is holding an online auction to try to raise funds for their organization in order to broaden their abilities to be able to help even more individuals effected by this disease. Ninety percent of cervical cancer instances are caused by the HPV virus and THERE IS A VACCINE FOR IT. We have the capability to wipe out this virus and yet so many people are still so undereducated about it.
I wanted to give everyone an update on how things are progressing with Celebrate the Web 2. An exciting new opportunity was brought to us for a fun new direction we can take the event to give us an exciting new way to celebrate at the same time keeping our core vision of opening up the celebration to as many people as possible.
Due to our extremely busy production schedules (we do after all not only love web content, Kim Evey and I are producers of it!) it became clear that we’d need to bring on some additional partners who were just as passionate (if not moreso) about the web community as we were to continue to take this event in the direction we’d envisioned it and keep the spirit of it fresh and exciting to the community. I had been approached several months ago by the fabulous and talented web community multi-hyphenates Stephanie Thorpe (Hurtling Through Space at an Alarming Rate, After Judgement, GOLD: Night of the Zombie King) and Taryn O’Neill (Hurtling Through Space at an Alarming Rate, After Judgement, Compulsions, Continuum) about helping to produce an event during the weekend of Comic Con in San Diego that would help fill the demand for more of a web series presence during the Con. Over the course of trying to plan both events, it became clear that we all had the same vision: one of giving fans and non-fans alike a chance to be exposed to and to celebrate the awesome web content that is being created by extremely talented individuals.
It became clear that the best way to make a truly unique and quality event would be to merge these two events into one, while keeping the strengths of what worked with Celebrate the Web (a relaxed atmosphere where fans and creators can come together, whether in person or online through livestreaming) while also celebrating the unique energy that exists during Comic Con and making a strong web presence there.
