How can NYC support digital media? May 31, 2007

Shout out to all you digital media afficionados there!!

I have the amazing honor to be included in a summit this upcoming monday at Gracie Mansion organized by the NY Office of Film, Television and Broadcasting … the purpose? To discuss the needs of the digital media community, to share ideas for how NYC can support this incredible community that I am so passionate about, and to identify ways to grow New York City’s market share of this business.

I am a committed member of the entertainment community, and an equally passionate about this gorgeous, diverse city that is my home… I am thrilled that NYC is so committed to growing the digital media business in NYC and thrilled to know that I won’t ever have to move to that other coast…

So help!!! I need your ideas…

As a member of the digital media community, what is your wish list????

How could NYC (or any city you live in) best support your work?
What initiatives would have the most value to you?
What would make you want to open your digital media company in NYC?

 

What is the hardest thing I’ve had to overcome???? May 22, 2007

fear… fear… fear…. fear….

In this week’s episode I said it was my twenties in NYC – much of which I spent pacing the streets of manhattan, crying…feeling hopeless, lost, worthless and desperate … working so hard to make my dreams come true, only to confront failure after failure after failure (or so I perceived it)…

but in retrospect, were those feelings anything other than fear in another form?

Boiled down to its common denominator…

Fear that who I am isn’t enough?

(and I wondered why it seemed no one wanted to hire me????!!!)

Once again I have embarked upon an adventure that is exciting, revolutionary, creative, the quintessence of what I believe I was put on this earth to do…

will I let my fear overcome me?????

Are artists afraid of Success?- or why I have no artist of the week April 24, 2007

Two episodes ago I began a new segment on Question of the Week ….wanting to celebrate the vision and courage of other artists who are committed to make a living doing what they love most I have begun featuring the work of an etsy artist every week and asking the artist to participate by answering the weekly question…

In the case of an artist who makes wearable art (jewlery,clothing).. I buy the item and wear it on my show (I neither ask for or want anything for free… my goal is to support artists and that means finacially too) … and I know I have increased traffic to these artists web sites cuz I can track clicks from my sites

So.. I am offering FREE publicity on a show the artists can be proud of.. guaranteeing that at least thousands of people will be exposed to their work, as well as “artist of the week” status on both ifnotnow.net and this blog…..

These artists have nothing to lose and everything to gain…

and yet… we have no “artist of the week” in last weeks show.. why? I contacted TWO, count them TWO different etsy artists (a jewlery designer whose work I have bought and wore in last weeks episode and also a photographer) and neither even bothered to return any of my emails.

Why do you think these artist turned down the opportunity for greater exposure?

My theory… our greatest fear is our own success

What’s yours?
