Hey #ShiningStarrs! I pray that everyone is out here giving their best to life, even if they are not presently LIVING their best life. I am doing that with vigor and zeal. I am so excited about how amazing this year has been and all that I KNOW awaits me in 2019! However, as we close out 2018 and come up on Christmas and my favorite holiday, MY BIRTHDAY (Dec 23rd), I am excited to screen our short film Shh... twice more in NYC before the year ends.
This year Shh... has been accepted as an Official Selection in seven film festivals, it has been nominated for two awards - including Best Actor for our Leading Man, Lamar K. Cheston and Best Screenwriting, which we won! We have also participated in several screening series and will be a part of two more this coming weekend.
Saturday, December 15thShh... will be showing as a part of the Necessary Studios Filmmaker Showcase, at Necessary Studios (25-19 Borden Avenue, Long Island City, NY). The showcase is from 5pm - 8pm and will screen several projects throughout the night. Admission is $7.00 and includes free drinks. There will be a short Q&A after each film and I look forward to your questions and feedback on our project! You can get your tickets at NecessaryStudios.com and check them out for your media and mixed-use space needs!
Sunday, December 16thShh... will be showing at the Black Film Space Holiday Screening and Mixer. The event will be held from 6pm - 10pm at Studio 206 in Manhattan (265 West 37th Street). Tickets are $10.00 and include free apps and wine. If you are unfamiliar with Black Film Space, they are an amazing organization and their mixers really are a meeting of amazing indie minds!

I hope to see you at one of our two screenings this weekend and thank you for an amazing year of support, encouragement, love, growth, lessons learned and true camaraderie. The strides of 2018 are only the beginning and I look forward to celebrating with you all for many, many years to come.
I will be having a birthday day party on December 23rd in Brooklyn, if you will be in town please give me a shout and I will forward you the invite! Help me ring in my 40th in a special way :-)
