What in the world has been going on with me lately, you ask? Good question.
I've been sharing the story of the monkey man with as many people as I can. I've entered the movie in a competition at an online site called Film Click. Right now it is a featured film on the front page and I would encourage you to go there and click to watch it. You don't have to watch it again if you've seen it, but click the link and go get a coffee - it will up the number of views and that can only be helpful.
I've also posted the movie on Current TV as well as nominate the Mazingira Monkey Project for World Challenge 08 is a global competition aimed at finding projects or small businesses from around the world that have shown enterprise and innovation at a grass roots level. There is potential for Juma to win a lot of money and expand his business.
Both the Film Click and World Challenge competitions I was invited to participate in by people who saw the movie at the Alice Film Festival. So, getting myself out there has proven to be a good thing!
I remind myself of that as I'm forcing myself to go to a networking meeting/thingy at the Small Business Administration tonight. While I'm working on getting a tv show - should I do something about Hey Miss K Productions? I copyright my movies to this name, I put it on business cards I printed out but at this moment in time... it isn't technically a business. Or is it? Do you see what I'm dealing with? But I try to make forward progress.
In other filmmaking adventures, my team from the Scary Cow group has finished filming our movie, Echo's Wonder. I'm a bit sad the photo of me was shot in the bookstore shortly after 6:30 in the morning when I'm not at my peak, but you must admit, with the headphones and crazy microphone, I do look like quite the official location sound person. The film screens June 1st at the Victoria Theater and I would encourage anyone who is around to come check it out. The sound is going to be fantastic.
