Having just got back from a week full of Wrestlemania 31 and San Francisco adventures here's a list of what's been going on with the one and only Phoenix!
1) The Idiot Who Loved is about to launch their Indiegogo campaign! Corey and the rest of the TIWL team is ready to raise the funds for their big short film project. Gearing up for obtaining the full budget, the rest of the crew, rehearsals, location scouting, and more over the next month. Stay tuned on how YOU can contribute to help make The Idiot Who Loved a reality!
2) AMAW progress is at an all time high. No limitations, no fear, no holding back as Corey has a big breakthrough in every class. There's so much more to learn as Corey continues to grow into the powerhouse and inspirational actor he always believed he could become.

4) The Web-Series turned Feature Film? Corey had another spark of inspiration and has decided to transform the psychological drama that was his web-series concept "Linked" and make it into a feature screenplay instead. With no limitations and time restrictions, Corey can finally take this screenplay into a brand new territory. Creating a dramatic, dark, emotional, roller coaster ride is Corey's main goal!

September has started off with a bang!
-I am back in the writing room after obtaining some great advice from executives at a film festival as well as a literary agent to alter the 22 minute "The Void" teleplay into a 40 minute script! So I've begun rewriting all 6 scripts of Season One adding more drama, action, character development, and a much larger world for the storyline to take a bigger emotional journey!
-I am now officially INSANITY certified! Not only can I inspire the world through my storytelling as an actor/screenwriter/director but I can now teach anyone to live a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life as an INSANITY instructor!
-A few auditions are on the horizon with many thanks to Backstage! Here's hoping I knock them all out of the park and I can truly beginning networking with many talented artists in Cali!
-Classes are just about starting up for the SAG-AFTRA LA Conservatory. It will be a very busy month as I continue to hone my craft, work in improvisational classes, and better learn more about me!

Well I am officially a West Coaster!
Now it's crunch time as I prepare dozens of headshots, resumes, and reels to be sent out to obtain an Acting/Writing LA Agent and/or Manager!
I have also submitted The Void, Blood Lust, and How I Got Over My Ex to Film and Television festivals all over the country. Hopefully soon I can obtain a distribution deal or get in touch with a successful production company or network to make these films and television pilots a reality!
I've also joined Meetup, the SAG-AFTRA LA Conservatory, and NextGen Filmmakers in hopes of networking with many inspirational artists all across Los Angeles.
Not to mention I can finally start getting SAG-AFTRA auditions, taking acting classes again with Anthony Meindl, and get back to work at Central Casting LA!
It's going to be a long, hard journey but I am focused and determined to make my dreams come true!
Stay tuned for more updates!!!
