Hi again, Doug--

I just had a long and enlightening talk with Chuck Whelan about insurance, so thanks again for the tip.

Hello everyone!

I was so excited to find this community! I'm currently a Grad student at Southern Illinois University, in Carbondale, studying Digital Documentary. SIU is also where I spent my undergrad years in the early 90s. I'm currently working on my first doc, "Jake and Janie", a story about family, and gambling addiction.
http://jakeandjaniemovie.com. I'm hopefully launching my Kickstarter campaign in the beginning of February to help fund the film.

A little about me:

As I mentioned above, I was here in Carbondale once before as an undergrad in the Radio/TV department.
I moved out west after graduation and instead of diving into the world of television, I ended up in the exploding world of E-Commerce, working for companies like eToys and Ticketmaster. It was a great ride (I ended up in London for a year!) However, as life moved on, I wanted to make my way back to my passion, which is telling great stories.

While I am focused on filmmaking, my former life in the online world is still with me. I work in the Marketing department at the SIU Student Recreation Center, focusing on their social media marketing efforts. I'm also one of the co-founders and VP of Social Media Club Southern IL, a professional networking group.

Anyway, I am quite excited to learn more about the website and everyone involved!

Great to have you here with us, Stacy. Here's The D-Word's one sad attempt at e-commerce.

That is sad...

Well, sad mainly in that we sold about ten hats. The model is the decidedly not sad Lucy Block when she was sweet 16.

Yes, Lucy did a great job and the backdrop is interesting, just the thought D-Word had hats and I never knew about it. Not saying I would buy one, but...

Yes, that's Amsterdam. IDFA 2005. Brings back waves of nostalgia.

Happy New Year,
I am requesting help from a peer group that speaks to cartoon development. The script, audio and art is ready in rough form and ready for next step towards presentation.
I need advice for presenting best storyboard content as many possible target markets can be reached.
My original concept was a 30 minute MTV or Adult Swim style gag humor show but could also reach markets for education and has movie potential.
Any help in organizing and experienced agents contacts would be appreciated.

Sincerely,

Len Schillaci 704 491 2821 Charlotte NC
