I am excited to announce we have raised enough money to complete a promo tape for The Silent Goldens documentary. My fellow producer, Jamie Smith, the director, Jon Bendis, and I have honed in on a concept and are crafting the idea.
Additionally, we soon will officially become an LLC and engage a lawyer. Both are big steps for me on this incredible journey.
Personally, I have been sorting all my storage items to find things we can use for visuals, which are sparking many childhood memories, and finding interesting notes and items I had forgotten all about. I’m also doing my yearly minimizing sweep of stuff and am astounded, as always, how much more I’m willing to get rid of each time. I haven’t added anything to the pile since I last went through it.
I continue to learn a lot about the film business and patience each step of the way.
My TV jobs had turned into such formulaic, speed them through the machine endeavors that I burned out. The difference is fascinating but I’m itchy to start filming!
My work on the board with the Greater LA chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is picking up as many of the events we attend to spread awareness are in the Spring and Summer. Lots of music festivals, Pride events, and health fairs on the list. We have a couple of new board members so I’ve been able to focus my attention on being Community Outreach Chair and liaison to 3rdparty events.
Finally, I’m revving up my participation in my Toastmasters club for public speaking and am scheduled to redo my intro “Ice Breaker” speech next Wednesday. We had a leadership change and a few new people have become involved since I first spoke, so I figured I’d do it again. I did rewrite it though based on the promo tape idea.
All my activities feed nicely into one another and are keeping this train moving. I’ll be working on the speech until I give it then I’ll post it for anyone who is interested to read.
Thanks, as always, for your continued support and I will report each milestone as we hit it!
