15 second vid, invitation to new videoblog, living with geeks on-hold while facing new projects

Many fun things abound with the Living with Geeks project; there’s plenty more interview footage to cut (and savor!) — and more geek couples to meet. It’s a passion project that darn it – I need to look in the face & put on-hold due to life balance issues.

Personal finance, retirement planning, networking, asset management … all wrapped up in fun are current priorities & discussed at my new videoblog:

Housewifery: where a healthy home life means business.

You’re invited anytime – your feedback’s always welcome.

Be awesome!…with new video below for kicks:

producing a 48 hour film project: dracula meets a nasty dc (join us & screen our final cut at AFI Theatre 5/8th!)

Fear.less.films entered the 48 Hour Film Project this past weekend; from sundown 5/4th to sundown 5/6th — our team wrote, cast, rehearsed, filmed, & cut a 6 minute short film.

I produced the project and loved every minute. The final cut is a creepy riot; the audio could have been stronger. We just ran out of time to tweak. But bottom line, who knew being so horrifically immoral could be so fun…in terms of producing a film.

Join us this Tuesday! Come celebrate & screen our film Tuesday, May 8th, 7pm, at Silver Spring’s AFI Theatre!

We drew our genre out of a hat last Friday and from there, produced the film soup to nuts.

our genre:
horror

our assigned prop: bracelet

our assigned character: Rosie or Roosevelt Addams

& our assigned line of dialogue: “That’s what I’m talking about.”

Hilarious. Fun. Adrenaline packed. And richly immoral & unhealthy as are the ways of the horrifying!

48 hour film project & creative crazies: cutting short film in two days

cool pin

Have you heard of this?

The project, now international in 48+ cities, started in 2001 at our very own DC.

Our team meets to talk-shop tonight….can’t wait. We’ve got a fun, spunky crew ready to go — including some DC Media Makers.

Things we’ll brainstorm on & decide: shoot sites for different genres (we draw our genre Friday, then start writing plot, script, casting, etc), production schedule for next weekend, how many pizza places are on team’s speed dial…

THE GOAL:
Creative production only transpires next weekend during the actual project festival. We write, rehearse, act, shoot, and edit to cut a 4-to-7 minute short!

See cool projects all over YouTube & Blip….like this past audience favorite (folks from CNN; thanks Scott):
