So yes, yes, finishing up editing (finally) Southside Security Patrol……found some free time…yayyyyyy….So here it is check it out these few clips……the whole thing should be done before the weekend. Poster and everything. Just have to make the trailer next and that’s all folks for 2014……I wonder what well do in 2015…? Who knows but for now enjoy the mini clips.
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.
The Messenger is a short film created by Jamaal R. James for James Creative Arts And Entertainment Company. The Messenger is a short film about a inter-planetary being who visits different people and forces them to make choices. The underlying message is in life we all have choices. The choices we make (ESPECIALLY in negative situations) make things better or worse for us. Here’s a link to the film.
Well here’s the Messenger himself. Hermann C. Wolf. Hermann did a great job of making and bringing the Messenger to life. Hermann was very adaptable and did an excellent job of jumping into character as the messenger. Hermann’s German came in very handy as well, since the messenger is using a cryptic language. Lol, what he’s saying is Bad things happen to all of us…..What really shapes our fate is what we do with it. Thanks again Hermann. You can check out his profile here. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm6648193/
Burtis Cutler. Burtis played Fred. Burtis did a great job of playing Frustrated Fred. Fred is a middle aged male who’s mad because his kids are spoiled and his wife shows him no respect…and then the car he’s driving happens to break down on him. The Messenger shows up and Burtis takes action. Action that becomes costly for him…..Well watch the film and see for yourself. Fred is to remind us that when we’re angry we should think before acting. You can catch up with Burtis Cutler here. Click the link.
Ruth Hunduma played Cindy. Cindy was jogging and minding her own business when she sprains her ankle on a step. Cindy makes more decisions that make her situation worse than before. Cindy’s another reminder to all of us that when your emotional remember to think……..Ruth was a great actress and was given very little direction and brought Cindy to life. Ruth next time I’ll make a storyboard to make the action come to life. Thanks again Ruth. You can find out more about Ruth Hunduma Backstage here. Click the link.
Yissendy Trinidad played Janessa. Janessa is engaged to be married to her fiancé…and her fiancé has changed his mind and decided to get married with Janessa’s best friend. Janessa takes it like a champ but then makes a hasty decision. Janessa is the embodiment of woman that lash out at their man or ex man by doing something with their body that does no harm to the man or woman in their life and much harm to themselves. If you don’t believe go on message boards and see what scorned women post online. So Janessa is a reminder to all of us….don’t send pics until you cool down….Yissendy’s accent came in handy. Yissendy was great to work with and took time to actually convey emotional conviction as Janessa. You can catch up with Yissendy Trinidad here.
Jacob Kahn played Bartholmeu. Jacob was Awesome I thought he was actually taking a Molly. Lol. Well Jacob played Bartholmeu. Bartholmeu is a college student who is studying for Finals. When he reaches his is almost finished studying he gets a message from a friend advising him that he’s been studying the wrong chapter……Now this has happened to all of us at one time or another. But Bartholmeu makes a choice after the Messenger shows up. Things get out of hand. Bartholmeu reminds us that a temporary escape doesn’t release you from having to face the consequences of your decisions. Thanks again Jacob…..you can Catch up Jacob Kahn here.
So as I watch the twilight zone series it got me to thinking. Who or what was the creative mind behind this series. Some shows or videos or only on television and good because an extensive amount of marketing has been put behind it and so people like. But if the twilight zones were shown at film festivals private screenings or your backyard, the story is still so powerful. The power of story. As you watch the shows there are so many hidden and implied messages that anyone with any level of intelligence can pick up on. But some people just see the story and so oh that was cool. But for those times you have to watch repeatedly and then you can see the messages being conveyed that you pick up on subconsciously. Read about Rod Serling’s biography here. Enjoy. Remember to keep creating.
So here we go. A friend from work always says the words..Keekoo, Keekoo, and we kept using the word back in forth, and I got the idea, Hey, that’s sounds like the name of a character for a children’s show or person. One day people will wear Keekoo and friends costumes to Comic Con Conventions. Be warned. Lol. Well for now, enjoy and be happy you were in on this secret before anyone else. Okay, thanks again, and wherever this idea came from, Thank You. James Creative Arts And Entertainment Company out.
Here they are:
Keekoo: a funny little girl that likes to play and have fun and go on trips, and teaching lessons.
