“thE rEAsOn” Comes to the LA WEBFEST April 4 & 5!

2015 Official Selection

Hello, my faithful followers!

It has been a while since my last update — on thE rEAsOn or otherwise —  but I hope this exciting news makes up for it!

By now many of you have had the opportunity to experience thE rEAsOn and some of you have even shared it with others, greatly increasing the traffic to the episodes. Thank you for that! The latest update is that two weeks ago I received word that thE rEAsOn was accepted into the LA WEBFEST, and that it has been nominated for four awards, including:

“Outstanding Actress in a Drama” (Dinora Walcott)
“Outstanding Actor in a Drama” (Desean Kevin Terry)
“Outstanding Theme Song in a Drama” (Brad Bettis)
“Outstanding Directing in a Drama” (Lauren C. Snowden)

This festival will be LA-local, right here in Universal City, and it runs from Thursday, April 2 to Sunday, April 5. In addition to the two screenings for thE rEAsOn on Saturday and Sunday, I will also be featured on two panel discussions — one Saturday and one Sunday. Here is a rundown:

Saturday April 4:
12:00 – Featured on panel “How we made our webseries”
2:00 – “thE rEAsOn” screens
8:00 – Awards ceremony at 8:00

Sunday April 5
4:00 – Featured on panel “How we made our webseries… as minorities in control”
6:00 – “thE rEAsOn” screens

I am so proud of everyone involved in bringing thE rEAsOn to life, and I want to especially congratulate Dinora, Desean and Brad for their nominations!

It would be so wonderful to have you there to share in the fun if you are able to make it. But even if you aren’t able to be here physically, I wanted to thank you all for your support and for believing in this vision and in me. Please email me or comment below if you want more information on the festival, to let me know that you will be joining in the festivities, or just to say hello! I would love to hear from you =)

If you want further information on the other events happening at the festival, the website is lawebfest.com. I have no doubt that there will be many wonderful series to enjoy and a wealth of invaluable information being given. And please, spread the word!

May the Lord bless and keep you in His care, ALWAYS!

Always love.

“thE rEAsOn” Episode 4 “Back to the Past” is LIVE!! =)

Hello, everybody!

Just a quick line to let you know that the final installment of my pilot, thE rEAsOn is live and ready to be enjoyed. I would love to hear what you all think of the show and I pray that I will be bringing you the next installment in just a few short months! Thank you so much for all of your support; for accompanying me on this crazy journey and for trusting me with your time.

Merry belated Christmas to you all! I trust that your day was wonderful and pray that your New Year would bring with it lots of hope and promise. God bless and keep you ALWAYS!

Always love.

thE rEAsOn is off to a great start… Please, keep on watching and sharing! =)

(Thank you, Don Charisma, for posting this quote today; it is so perfect for me at this moment!)

This is exactly where I’m at right now. This film grind is not an easy one. What I have learned is that the hard part–at least for me–isn’t making good content. God has definitely blessed me with a tremendous gift to tell good stories. No, the toughest challenge for me is getting this good story in front of that ONE someone who has the influence that is needed. That ONE who will believe enough in this project to take a chance on me and the amazing people who contributed to make thE rEAsOn the awesome show that it is. The ironic thing is that all the people in my life (meaning you, my friends and family and colleagues who have sacrificed your money, time and talent to pour into my vision) already believe in me that strongly. And that faith is what is going to blast me right through that wall. We’re so close! Thank you so much for believing in me! Thank you for supporting by watching my show and sharing it. You will be so glad you did!

“thE rEAsOn” Four-part Miniseries Premiers on YouTube

SCREENSHOT - Opening

Hello to all my faithfuls!

I pray this email finds you well. I have been updating you on the progress of thE rEAsOn over the past few months and now it is time for me to show you what all the fuss is about! And here is a little insider information that I’m only giving to my subscribers: I have cut my TV pilot into four mini episodes and will be leaking one part every week and a half from now until the New Year, with some special featurettes sprinkled in for flavor. It is my hope that you and everyone else who watches the show will love it so much that you can’t wait to tell your friends, family and even strangers! I want to cultivate a great following for this gem of a story so that I can continue with the telling and have an audience to tell it to! I truly hope you enjoy it and maybe even see a little bit of yourself from some stage of your life. For me, it’s the stage I’m currently in, which makes this entire experience extremely ironic!

So! Without further delay, I give you part one of thE rEAsOn – Episode:”31 Candles” . Please, like it, share it and subscribe. But most of all, ENJOY IT! =)
