“REINVENT”

After an awesome consultation with our film’s Fiscal Sponsor (From the Heart Productions), it is time to reinvent how we are going to go about raising our funding. “Reinvent” is defined as – to makeover; improve; make completely new; to give a fresh face to; and to change the appearance of something to make it … More “REINVENT”

ALMOST THERE!

I keep these two things attached to each other on my desk, for motivation. I need Jazzercise to help with my overall fitness, health and wellbeing, but also for my skating program in the film.

WE ARE READY!

When an award winning producer/director/actor tells me my script, “is good,” well into our 13th year of the project, I can only shout for joy!
