If not now… when?

Because we were born to realize our dreams…

The Crabbo and Jabbo Show- LIVE April 17, 2008

It has been so long since I’ve posted to this blog…the sidebar widgets are sadly out of date, and my life has moved on in ways I would never have imagined since “Queston of the Week” first gave me wings.

I’ve thought about leaving this blog behind…and I might just do that… or perhaps I will bend it to more powerfully reflect where I am now in my life…

I have a project in development that is the light of my creative heart, but I also have a new project with my husband, that focus on many of the things this blog focuses on…. namely… how to create the life of our dreams and to tell the world that who we are is perfect.

Its been 8 months since “35” premiered. The first web drama to stream live on the web, “35” was a labor of will, of love, of pain, of tenacity and in retrospect… of celebration. In the past two years the web 2.0 community has unleashed a torrent of tools and sites that now make it possible for artists of all sorts to Green Light their own creative projects. To produce work on a scale which only months ago would have been deemed impossible, and to reach a global audience with our music, our sculpture, our crafts, our videos. We no longer have to wait for casting directors, for investors, for galleries or film festivals to deem us worthy… we can stand behind our own work, tell the world that we are passionate about what we do, we believe in ourselves and that is more than enough!

“35” was designed to be a presented in two seasons, and we hope to bring you season 2 ASAP. We also have another webisode in development… but in the mean time…

The Jabbo and Crabbo Show- Live and Interactive The artists (and otherwise cool person’s) guide to creativity and technology on the web.

It is Guiesseppe and my hope to build a community of artists who support one another in living the lives we dreamed of and bringing our work to the Internet. We will offer everything we have learned this past year and will offer up tips each week that will make it easier for every artist to publish their work, to collaborate with other creatives, to market their art and (hopefully) live a more fulfilling life.

We hope you will join us on Mondays at 9:15 at . If you would like to receive an email reminder right before we go live each monday, contact us and we would be more more more than happy to oblige!

We also want this show to by YOUR show… so let us know what you want to learn about, and what topics you want to discuss. Join the Community!

Live TV! Overcoming My biggest Fear! June 16, 2007

Well not the live part… that feels like second nature…

In a post some weeks ago I wrote about the hardest thing I’ve had to overcome and that thing of course was my fear… lotsa varieties that manifest themselves in oh… quitting, failure, overeating, procrastinating… you know… but they all boil down to one thing… fear that who I am is not enough.

Well.. here I go… tellin the world that I who I am is enough.. that I am passionate and powerful and I believe in me….

(I know…that sounds so dopey and self-helpey… but its true..if you have a better way to say it please submit!!!! I would be ever grateful!

A fantastic DP just signed on…we will be shooting virals in a few weeks…..Everything is falling into place…. Here I go!!!

 

Viral, Veoh, Podcasting, and why I am such a fan March 6, 2007

us on veoh

Nick and I are featured on Veoh’s show Viral this week… which isn’t just a wonderful thing… to me its an important thing… which has nothing to do with gaining exposure.

I am an actor and for so many years I lived completely in the world of auditioning… of waiting for someone else to tell me I was worth it… waiting for a nameless (and questionable?) panel behind a long folding table in a huge mirrored audition room to make my dreams come true.

Now, I know a ton of amazing people who are actors… but this atmosphere also seemed to breed a certain sense of “THERE IS NOT ENOUGH”, which can’t help but breed a sense of “IF I HELP YOU I RISK HURTING ME”… how else could one think when thousand and thousands of us are courting a miniscule amount of people who hold court over an equally minuscule amount of jobs.

This spilled over into our creative worlds as well. I have been ruminating on Chris Brogan’s blog for weeks now… about the boundless possibilities that are available to you when you work as a focused, passionate team… (more…)

 

My Academy Award Speech March 5, 2007

To answer my own question (see previous post), uchhch… I cringe to say it… its such a damn cliche… and I know! there are so many awards with so much more import…

I dream of winning an Academy Award.

But where once any old Academy Award would do…. now my dream is far more specific, and far more meaningful to me. I want to win an Academy Award for the film I wrote… for the film that is both my passion and my purpose, my biggest challenge, and the reason my life has taken me down such a bumpy and ohh so painful sometimes journey….

My Academy Award speech…

There I stand on that huge stage, trembling with excitement, with joy….with utter relief… I take in the people, the lights the music… I search out my husband…there he is.. I mouth “I love you” (he is crying too, knowing him)… (more…)
