The weather has gotten cold of late, but fear not...BOXED OUT PRODUCTIONS has some heat for you all! Our next short film, "Mars & Venus: Operation Equilibrium" is underway.
"When the balance of who and what society is becomes lost, it evolves into the beginning of the end. With the future at stake...can the present learn to appreciate itself enough to save it?" __ We are in pre-production and are due to have first picture up by December 6th! It's a task for sure, and as we are not doing a crowd-funding campaign, it's EXPENSIVE as well. LOL We are doing our best, however, even though we are not doing an official crowd fund, I AM accepting donations should you want to make a contribution to ya girl via paypal or whatever means you'd like. smile I also have official pitch packets available for any aspiring Executive Producers or financiers!

O's O'capella Mondays are back!!!!
So it's been A LONG TIME since I've put up an O'capella Monday. Actually, it's been months since I've sang live period! But I'm working with my spiritual dad and vocal guru Ankh Rah and my voice is coming back better than ever. To hear the latest O'capella Monday post, (India Aarie's Beautiful Surprise) click the pick to the right. The photos is from this Sunday when I shook up the room at the Mixed Tape Comedy Show Allstar Band at Gotham Comedy Club in NYC. I sing with the band every third Sunday of the month!
Next up I will be performing tomorrow, Thursday, November 20th at Medgar Ever's College for their Music of Words event. I'll be opening the show and closing the first act with two original songs. Showtime is 8PM, it's free and the address is 1650 Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn, NY. Hope to see some of my people's in the crowd!
Also, if you need a performer for your holiday events or a host, you know you can hit me up! PLUS, O's headed back in the booth very soon and looking to open the first quarter of the new year with a single and video! So NOTE - For any of my producers out there, I'm looking for new material to create to...hit me (email@example.com).
SCENE & HEARD
O the actor is back in full effect! Aside from being super excited about the work I'm doing in my own film, Mars/Venus, I have been auditioning for feature film lead roles, commercials and agents/managers. I am very excited and confident that there are big things on the horizon for sure! But speaking of Medgar Evers and big moves, I am proud to announce that I've been given the task to play Myrlie Evers in the lead role of the staged reading of The Activist's Wife, written by my sistah from another mistah, Mosi Singleton. She wrote the piece for her thesis as an NYU Tisch Graduate student (Spike Lee was one of her professors!) and I saw the production at her school. It was amazing. I then went on to meet the real Myrlie evers this past February briefly (cuz God is just dope like that). Then this spring I was asked to step in to perform an excerpt from the play as Mamie Till (mother of slain Emmett Till). I got amazing feedback from that opportunity, and turn around twice, I am now playing the lead of Myrlie for the next installment of the piece, the big read.
This play in INCREDIBLE and I am beyond honored for this opportunity. Stay tuned for more on that...but please keep me in your thoughts and prayers!
