I would love to hear what you all think of the show and I pray that I will be bringing you the next installment in just a few short months! Thank you so much for all of your support; for accompanying me on this crazy journey and for trusting me with your time.

When it rains, it pours: My Recent Interview and other Blessings =)

“…when things once start going right they often go on getting better and better.” – CS Lewis

Well, I’ve been trying something new in my life: actively trusting God. That is a moment-to-moment decision that I have to continue to make. This journey of trying to find a home for “thE rEAsOn” has been an interesting one. Every single person who has watched the show says how much they love it and how much we need more shows like this on the air which is absolutely wonderful, because that just proves that there is a very real audience out there who loves the project! Yet I’m still in need of that ONE person who will take a chance on me and this great project and everyone involved with it. BUT… I’m trusting God to work it out because, just like every other awesome thing that has happened surrounding my film work, none of it is in my control.

Speaking of… A few weeks back I returned from the New York Television Festival and had a sit-down with my Film Studies department chair at Moorpark College. I was telling her all about my experience in New York and she expressed immense excitement for me. I thought nothing else of it until about two weeks later, she emailed me that the Moorpark Student Voice (The college’s online news publication) had requested to conduct a featured interview with one of the Film professors who was currently working on any projects. As it turns out, to my knowledge, I’m the only instructor in my department who is actively working to make film projects. Well, the video interview was released on Tuesday and I would love to share it with you! I am not at all comfortable being in front of the camera but I have learned to embrace these opportunities as primers for what is to come. I have to believe that all of this is coming together for a very specific, very GOOD reason!

You can watch my interview with the Moorpark Student Voice here:

In addition to this interview, I have had an influx of interest and order for my metal artwork! I literally prayed last Thursday that somehow I would be allowed to use my artwork to raise funds to finance my projects until someone else — preferably a network executive or independent financier — comes along and offers to cover my overhead. Well, lo and behold, the very next day, the orders started coming in! And I am even working on my first commission for a pretty successful business as well! It was as direct an answer to prayer as I can remember receiving! So now, I’m back in business and actually teaming up with a fabricator to start cutting my materials because it’s more than I can comfortably manage on my own anymore. (Stay tuned for a separate blog update on my artistic welding progress! =)

So today, I’m especially thankful. I’m thankful for my God-given gifts and that He has endowed me with the tenacity to use those gifts to bring glory to Him. And I’m most thankful that He is showing me how to trust Him to take care of the details! Thanks for sticking with me; it means so very much!

Always love.

Episode 3 “A Very Sucky Engagement”

It’s about that time! Episode 3 “A Very Sucky Engagement” is LIVE!!

Quinn flashes ring - very sucky engagement

Sometimes things just don’t go the way you plan…

And Maya O’Neil seems to be enduring one upset after another. First, her college sweetheart shows up at her birthday party after ten years, with his fiancée in tow. Then she’s nearly run over by a cyclist — albeit an extremely gorgeous cyclist — in the park, and he expects her to pay for the damage to his bike that resulted from him being hurled off the side of the bike path after she darted out in front of him. What else could possibly go wrong? Well, the episode title should whet your appetite just enough to make you want to find out for yourself!

Happy Friday to all of my faithful followers and to the newcomers! thE rEAsOn, Episode 3 “A Very Sucky Engagement” has launched and is available for you to view. I sure hope you have been enjoying the show thus far. This is part 3 of my 4-part pilot presentation. What happens after episode 4 remains to be seen. But you helping to spread the word is going to go a mighty long way in helping us to get the rest of the show filmed. So, please, continue to tune in and let’s see if we can’t dazzle you!

Blessings,

Lauren, AKA The Filmstress

This is exactly where I’m at right now. This film grind is not an easy one. What I have learned is that the hard part–at least for me–isn’t making good content. God has definitely blessed me with a tremendous gift to tell good stories. No, the toughest challenge for me is getting this good story in front of that ONE someone who has the influence that is needed. That ONE who will believe enough in this project to take a chance on me and the amazing people who contributed to make thE rEAsOn the awesome show that it…

The ironic thing is that all the people in my life (meaning you, my friends and family and colleagues who have sacrificed your money, time and talent to pour into my vision) already believe in me that strongly. And that faith is what is going to blast me right through that wall. We’re so close! Thank you so much for believing in me! Thank you for supporting by watching my show and sharing it. You will be so glad you did!
