Moving On To New Things

This was a big move for me. At first, I thought I was just moving to a new place, as I started the process it brought out all theses emotions. About 5 years when I moved to LA, life started throwing all these curve balls. In this 5-year period, I went to 7 funerals, I lost a lot of family and friends. I broke up with my girl friend and a few more things happed that I don’t care to talk about. There was a point were I did not leave my house for 2 months I was so heart broken, I could not even go out side. When I decided to move, I felt like it was me saying it was time to move on from all those old feeling. Now that I’m in my new place, I feel a new energy. It’s such a good feeling. Right now I’m so in inspired, I can’t wait to see what will come out of this. As I was going through all my old stuff I started creating huge piles of trash, as I was throwing it away, I was imagining my self throwing out all those old feeling and leaving them behind. I guess what im saying out with the old and in with the new…

This is my new place.....

NBC to CAA to Authentic Entertinment

 Yesterday day I had a meeting with Authentic Entertainment. Authentic has produced some pretty big TV shows. I feel like my meeting went really well. As I was showing my project to the VP of development I could see her reactions to it she was very compelled. Her response to me was she loved it but she thought this would make a better Documentary than a TV show. That is something I have been considering my self form the beginning. I started to think to my self were am I going to get $200k to make a documentary? I have a feeling if I take this route it is going to lead to more meetings. When I started out as a photographer I though that I would just be shooting things all the time. I didn’t think I would have to do so much on the business end of things. Its time for me to get a rep. Regardless I know this project will happen. When I get discouraged I remember what these disabled athletes what they had to over come to make it. It gives me the strength and courage to push on. That is the points of this project never give up and fallow your dreams. I have yet another meeting with Pie Town they also are big producer of TV shows. I will keep you posted.

From NBC to CAA.

 My meeting with NBC/ Universal led to more meetings. My friend Beth Roberts referred me to a company called CAA  (Creative Artist Agency. Were I had a meeting with Alan Braun. I went into this meeting just thinking about how to pitch the enabled project. The meeting went really good and Alan set me up with some of the biggest Production House in LA.The funny part about this story is I had know idea what I was walking into. I guess I should have researched the company a little more. After the meeting I call my friend and  told here I had a meeting at CAA. The phone went blank for a minute. When she caught her breath she started screening with excitement. She said” do even know were you were at? How did you get in there people would do kill to have a meeting with any one in that building.  Do you know the represent Steven Spielberg, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Oprah Winfrey, LeBron James, Peyton Manning, Will Ferrell, Will Smith and Sarah Michelle Gellar. To name a few." I almost dropped the phone. I think if I would of known all that I would have been so nervous I would not of even been able to talk? The next meeting I have is at Authentic Entertainment. I will keep you posted. Im getting excited I can’t wait to see what happens next.
