Very proud to not only run Think Ten Media Group with this man, but to also share my life with him as we seek to create meaningful and entertaining media and raise our sons to also #bethechange . Here, +Ramon Hamilton speaks openly and honestly about going bankrupt for a film and then waking up and learning to do things differently. #indiefilm   #filmmaking   #SupportIndieFilm   #PowerOfArt

Moving past fear. This year my guiding word is courage. http://jennifischer.blogspot.com/2015/02/guiding-word-2015-courage.html #JFDI  
is fear. We're all born creative, it takes a little while to become afraid. A surprising insight: an enemy of fear is creativity. Acting in a creative way generates action, and action persuades the fear to lighten up.

I thought the film trooper community would appreciate my latest piece that explores a bit about being fiercely independent rather than chasing after studio and/or "Hollywood" success: https://thinktenmediagroup.wordpress.com/2015/02/17/say-goodbye-to-hollywood/ #indiefilm   #filmmaking   #Berlinale  
Though I should be a child of the 90s given by birth year, when it comes to music, I am mostly a child to the 80s. Right now,Billy Joel's "Say Goodbye to Hollywood" ballad is the soundtrack swirlin...

John Legend reminded us at the Oscars of Nina Simone's words:

"An artist's duty is to reflect the times in which we live."

Our upcoming webseries, "The wHOLE" seeks to do that as it reflects the reality of mass incarceration in the U.S., where we incarcerate more men, women and children than any other nation and hold, on any given day, 80,000 individuals in solitary confinement, including juveniles. The show uses the power of storytelling to bring forth voices and stories typically locked away in the shadows. 

On March 23rd, our pilot episode for "The wHOLE" series will air and our crowdfunding campaign for the series will launch. We hope you will join us on this journey.
