TOWER 15 is OFFICIAL
A few days after my last update I received the start-up funding for my production company. It's amazing how things can change overnight. On Christmas I was wondering if I'd have to put my dream on hold or even if I'd have a home come the New Year. Then on January 2nd I was registering my business with L.A. County. I felt like the miracle I had asked for was fulfilled, and it was such a blessing.
My mission for Tower 15 Productions is INSPIRING CREATIVES THROUGH EDUCATION & COLLABORATION. It is my dream to collaborate with and support other creatives in the areas of publishing, photography and filmmaking so that together we can share our creative projects with the world. I have learned so much from amazing mentors over the years and now it's time to pay it forward. I can't wait.
A CHANGE OF HEART
As mentioned, I was supposed to be in Park City attending the Sundance Film Festival. I had booked the accommodations and made all the arrangements last JULY. Yet last week as I was preparing to get everything set, I just didn't feel like going. For one, temps are in the 30s and I just don't do COLD anymore. Having lived in California now for over a decade, my body has acclimated and I panic when it's 50F. Haha! So I asked myself, do I really NEED to be there? Sure it would be fun and a great opportunity to network, yet I've been working non-stop the last few weeks getting my production company up and running. So when I asked, the answer was NO, and the moment I said no, my entire body relaxed. I knew it was the right decision.
The last few weeks I've been getting everything organized, the legalities in place and the business side of things taken care of to create a strong foundation. I created the website which should be completed in the next week or so. I'm now working on the educational portion which will highlight the mediums of publishing, photography and filmmaking. I've created new social media platforms and a new YouTube channel as well. I have so much I want to do and create, and can't wait to share all of it with you. I feel so blessed for all I've learned over the years and can't wait to pay it forward.
FULL SUPER MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE
Did you happen to catch the Super Moon Lunar Eclipse the other day? It was spectacular. I was fortunate to receive my brand new Canon camera earlier in the day so I could capture this photo. I was so pleased. I'm amazed at what I can do with my cell phone in terms of filming and photos, but nothing like having a great camera.
I love the moon so much. I feel such a strong connection to her. Her energy is powerful and days before the eclipse I had a migraine and just wanted to sleep. I listened. After she rose on eclipse day, I felt much better.
Do YOU feel her? If so, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
WHAT'S ON TAP?
My next BIG event is the San Francisco Writers Conference next month where I will be leading a new track entitled BOOK TO SCREEN which will focus on screenwriting and filmmaking. I'm so excited to support those writers interested in a film career and share panels with my fellow screenwriters and filmmakers.
In developing Tower 15 Productions I'm eager to learn what other creatives are desiring in the industry. My plan is to offer classes, workshops, networking events, and resources in the areas of publishing, photography and filmmaking.
Is there something ELSE you would like to see? What is missing for the artist? How can I serve YOU?
Eager to hear your thoughts.
Until next time,
