I’ll be the first to admit that September was insane. Here’s why:
SEPTEMBER OUTREACH HIGHLIGHTS:
WHAT: Ban This! Book Signing
WHERE: at the Cypress Park Library
HEARD ABOUT IT FROM: Art Meza @CypressParkLAPL
WHY IT WAS RAD: “I listened, I learned, I read, and it saved my life.” -Adrianna Simone
There was a live-blog here before I had fought with my former domain host, but hope to re-create it in the near future. In the meantime, check out the Pinterest pictures on my board “Good Reading”.
WHAT: By Appointment w/ Luis Alfaro
WHERE: East LA Rep
HEARD ABOUT IT FROM: Jesus Reyes, Artistic Director of East LA Rep who asked me to live stream
WHY IT WAS RAD: “All that art requires of you is to change.” If you need any sort of encouragement or inspiration, listen to Luis for just a few minutes.
WHAT: Theatre Through an Interpreter [Video Series & Talkback]
WHERE: 24th ST Theatre
HEARD ABOUT IT FROM: Part of my Outreach Consulting
WHY IT WAS RAD: After a performance in Spanish w. English super-titles, we talked about communicating through English, ASL & Spanish – in all three languages at once! [Video available soon] Read Audience Response.
WHERE: Across Los Angeles
HEARD ABOUT IT FROM: Diana Wyenn asked me to run Social Media Strategy w/ Jim Halloran
WHY IT WAS RAD: Refocused negative energy from Carmageddon II into a movement towards local art; a movement for audiences and artists alike.
WHAT: DIY Day at the Broad Humor Film Festival. Co-panelist Erika Cervantes from Comediva & I talked to filmmakers on the importance of social media even before you have a product (but not before you have content).
WHERE: The Electric Lodge in Venice
HEARD ABOUT IT FROM: LA FPI (Los Angeles Female Playwrights Initiative)
WHY IT WAS RAD: A selection of quotes from other panels:
“Auditioning is its own genre of acting.”
“Silk is our enemy, cotton is our friend.”
“Isn’t there a button where you can take out the airplane in my shot?”
“I wrote for Friday the 13th, the series. I can kill six people an hour.”
“We believe that filmmakers should be able to live through their art.”
