Hi Everyone, Happy 2011 and Welcome Back to my Blog.
With the launch of I Ain't Playin Films last year I truly feel as if I've earned my place within the New York City Indie Film Community. The gratification of producing is felt more profoundly than casting and I see this is as the path of my natural progression. Although on too many occasions I found myself putting out fires and talking directors off the ledge, the result was the satisfaction of contributing to creating film as art. The list of filmmakers who I love working with continues to expand and I look forward to future collaborations with those who are new to me.
Quite a few films with the casting/producing hybrid have done very well in the festival circuit world wide. Two high points: Sundance 2011 screened "Crazy Beats Strong Every Time" written & directed by Moon Molson and HBO plans to air "The Cycle", written & directed by Roy Clovis Jr. starting Feb. 1st.
I continue to be inspired by the world around me and the artists in it. Please feel free to be in touch via the Casting Solutions Facebook group page. There are about 1,400 members from around the globe which is a very heartwarming statistic to know.
I wish you all the best- Liz
