Southside Security Patrol: Short Film

So here it is yes, finally finished the film…..yayyyyy…the poster for the film can use some work, but sometimes simple is smart. Sometimes weird is different. Well here’s the basic premise of the film…..some security guards run into daily troubles while securing the perimeter of a building…this film was made to see how this story would look on film and what not…..there’s more coming from this story but not pulling all my hats out of the bag as yet…as any good card player never does…..but for now..enjoy this short film…clip….and thanks again all who actually came thru and made this happen.

 

Here’s the link to the film and trailer…………

Aaron Rose as A.J.

Aaron did a wonderful job on set and was pretty creative with his wordplay and coming up with conversation on the spot. I thought he did an outstanding job. Aaron also works as a stand-up comic in addition to acting. We know we’ll see him on the big screen. A.J. is pretty funny, if you have ever worked security you always have that one guy who takes his job way to serious, A.J. is that guy.

Amanda Martin…….as Savannah

Amanda was a sweetheart to work with. Her and Aaron made great partners and were truly a dynamic duo. Amanda was the A.J.’s partner in the film. If you ever noticed someone who is always doing too much on the job or taking things really serious? They usually have a partner who supports and backs them up in whatever they do. So Amanda held her own and backed up A.J. Amanda was very manageable as well.

Armond Edward Dorsey……..as Marcus

Armond was great to work with…Armond brought Marcus to life. Sometimes…I thought to myself is this Marcus or Armond..he just naturally did stuff that Marcus would do..great personality…and forgiving…as we started kind of late after a few setbacks…but the show must go on. Armond was Marcus the guy who’s lazy and doesn’t really do much. Many of us know people like this on any job from IT to bodybuilding….so check Armond’s bio here.

Gemma Alfaro….as Janet

Gemma played Janet in Southside Security Patrol. Gemma was pretty funny and the lines that she came up with in this unscripted comedy was pretty funny. Gemma brought Janet to life and stood her own as well as partnered well with Marcus…..but on any job just like the hard working person has an ally the lazy person has the same ally. Janet and Marcus like to hang out and hardwork is a foreign concept to them. Gemma was very easy to work with and she was very Coachable as well. Thanks again. Gemma.

D’Andre Johnson….as Dacian Banks.

Dandre was and is a very talented actor. Dandre was supposed to be a member of the cast but things changed last minute and Dandre was chosen as the villain. So it worked really well…and he quickly switched roles from being apart of the group to being a villain. Dandre was a very formidable villain for the guards of Southside Security Patrol…so I guess you’ll have to check it out to see what happened. Thanks again Dandre for being so flexible.

L.A. Fashion District

If you are a creative person and like creating your own clothes, costumes, or designs, well here’s a website that talks about the fabric or garment district in downtown Los Angeles, if you have been to a local fabric store some of the fabric can cost as much as 12 dollars per foot for some high quality fabric. The same high quality fabric can be found in downtown los angeles for half that price. Just saying. So if you plan on making a series of costumes or just playing around with fabrics, this is a good place to go. Did you know that the same fabric that is in 100 to 200 dollar jeans you can buy the same fabric yourself and make your own clothes? Yes, I know. So once you get the fabric you just need a brand name, and put on some fashion shows to attract buyers from small and large retail companies. If that doesn’t work do word of mouth and get your clothes on people who are icons in their industry or athletes or actors or actresses. The possibilities are limitless. Well enjoy, what does this have to do with Creative Arts? Everything. In time everything. James Creative Arts And Entertainment Company. out.

Imagination Quotes

Authors are far closer to the truths enfolded in mystery than ordinary people, because of that very audacity of imagination which irritates their plodding critics. As only those who dare to make mistakes succeed greatly, only those who shake free the wings of their imagination brush, once in a way, the secrets of the great pale world. If such writers go wrong, it is not for the mere brains to tell them so”
Gertrude Atherton, The Bell In The Fog & Other Stories
