Meet-up for Tacos, Networking and Donation to ONE IndieGoGo or Kickstarter Campaign

Everyone talks a good game – over a month ago our producer, JD AKA @Misadventurer, came up with the idea for a Taco Vestifal which would bring together new media, web series indie creators, producers, actors and  community to hang out together.

We had 48 RSVP confirming they would come. Hard to find a place where we could all hang and really “network” while enjoying Tacos… so we selected the venue and hired a caterer who would come out to cook up a feast fit for the Inaugural Independent Taco Vestifal… the tickets for admission are FREE to come hang out or for all you can eat and drink $15/$20.


We’ve committed to do this and have set up everything from providing the Culver City venue with free parking and awesome cooked on the grill meats for tacos, fixings, drinks and more… including screening YOUR webseries or playing Rockband… while hanging out with cool people who love tacos.

We’re still waiting on some of you who said you’re coming to get your tickets… so to make this even more about the community and supporting it. We’re giving back $5 for every ticket sold – and YOU get to pick which IndieGoGo or KickStarter campaign that money goes to.

Click here to buy your tickets and post your suggestion on this blog post for which current campaign you’d like to see the money go to for consideration.

We have 50 tickets to sell for this event…. that’s $250 to someone’s project. Are you in??

ITVFest Wednesday: My Favorite Screening: Olga Kay’s Circus

Much has been said about this video but speaking purely from my heart and love of the circus of old… I loved this video! I loved the creativity. First of all it has a simple premise… and can’t or shouldn’t be compared to the theatrical Cirque de Soleil of today. This took me back to my childhood (no, I won’t tell you how far back that is) but watching this transported me back to a place where I loved to be as a child, the special treat, in a big tent where wide-eyed children sat on the edge of their seats and waited for the next act… and where there were 3 rings… looking from ring to ring with open mouths in wonderment… and wishing we could do that!

Choicing your own destiny is the simple story line for this elaborately visual tale. This video reminded me of how simple life can be if we follow our dreams and do what we want. I can tell you that what I wanted to be growing up is a far cry from what I do today (and which I love)… however, if I were to have done what I wanted, would it have really been what I would have stayed with?

A few years ago I was in the Silicon Valley rat race as a marketing executive in Tech… and before that in Newspapers… and out of college, a medical technologist (yeah like the ones in the hospital labs that run tests on your blood etc…)…. and no, none of those were what I dreamed of doing (which was be like my Daddy, and carry a gun – Police). Seems Mark Gantt of The Bannen Way and I both had similar aspirations as kids. But my father, like Olga’s mother did not want that for their child. I will tell you that my father told me he never thought I would be a successful “career woman” and that was a huge compliment, not because he thought I would suck – but he just did not see that dream for me, and yet, it was a destiny that I would fulfill…

What are you waiting for… watch the video and explore your passions.

Oh yeah… there is ONE day left at the ITVFest… and YOU can go check it out. Don’t read about it go live it.

Here’s the info for ITVFest tomorrow… what are you waiting for? We want to see you there!!
