This has been a very busy few weeks as pre-production for "Linked" is in full effect. With new script rewrites tying in previous projects such as "The Void", "The Idiot Who Loved", "How She Became My Ex", "The Retribution", "Corey and Friends", "Led by Faith", and "Solitary Confinement". Linked will be bringing them all together in the same cinematic universe!
Also on the "Linked" Facebook page we have our full cast announcements and descriptions on each of the characters. Crew meetings have begun as well as the Indiegogo Campaign will be launching this coming week!
Together we can make this project possible. For we are all connected. We are all one. We are all linked! And as always...
RISE WITH THE PHOENIX
What a great night reuniting with the cast and crew of The Idiot Who Loved! Many thanks for all of our amazing audience who came out to support us. Now it's on to festival submissions and more!
It's been a very fun filled month as Christmas is once again here! My absolute favorite holiday of the year and I am thankfully able to spend it with both my family in New Jersey and my wife's family in West Virginia. Stay tuned for pictures from our vacation at the start of the new year in 2016!
Although it is Christmas time I am still very focused on my career, movies, screenwriting, health, fitness, and everything else that makes me happy! "Linked" is in the beginning stages of launching our Indiegogo campaign, "The Idiot Who Loved" is in the final stages as I review the final cut of the completed project! Our premiere date is January 29th followed by our epic wrap party!
Below are some great photos from this past month with Jenn, my parents, and my tremendous acting class. Also find two links to my katch.me account linked to my Periscope @CoreySnowden1 with some holiday cheer at our AMAW and LA Connection Holiday Parties!
And as always...
To say that a lot has happened since my last blog post would be an understatement. These past few weeks have been very hectic but much has been accomplished in a short amount of time. Let's discuss some of those events that have happened just before Christmas vacation begins and Jenn and I will be heading back to New Jersey and West Virginia for a few weeks!
-I've completed my third draft of my feature screenplay LINKED. The table reading was a huge success and the stories and characters are so much more well rounded and thought out. It's going to be a fantastic project when it's all said and done. The campaign preparation has begun and in the new year it will be officially launched!
-I successfully completed The Actors Business Breakthrough and it was a huge success. Obtaining my personal vision statement and even writing a letter to my future self was intriguing. I'll receive it in November 2016! With my 8 week goal completed with meeting some of my targeted casting directors, January 2016 will start a new 8 week goal...finally getting a good, strong, passionate theatrical agent!
-I've reviewed several versions of The Idiot Who Loved as we crack down on the edits to create the best project possible. With the help of a great editor so much positive things can be accomplished and TIWL is proving to be just that. I can not wait to share the finished film with the world and especially can't wait for the wrap party!
-I've joined the Actors Key and the Actors Link and have had the opportunity to meet with and work one on one with several casting directors and theatrical agents that are in my target list. Little by little the door is opening and one day that world will see what I can do ;)
-AMAW classes as well as LAC rehearsals have ended for the year. I would like to thank Tony, Nina, Todd, Kent, Deven, Joe, and so many other inspirational teachers and coaches over the last year who have helped me transform into a better person and actor. I can not wait for our continued success in #TeamThursday as well as with Group Text in our new location next year in Burbank!
-I've started reworking my BIG saga film series that is ultimately my main career goals. I call them "The Big 6". It's what I was put on this earth to create and I am destined to be the lead character in the film franchise. One day. Some day. I will Rise With The Phoenix for real.
TTFN! Ta Ta For Now! (Sorry my Disney World vacation is still in my heart :D)
And as always....RISE WITH THE PHOENIX!
These past two weeks have been a pleasant reminder of all of the wonderful, inspirational, and loving people that are a part of my life. Whether it be my parents, aunt, and cousin who visited from New Jersey or all of my new acting friends I have met this past year in Los Angeles; they all bring joy into my life.
Thank you all for the great memories, stories, laughs, and fun that we got to experience! From Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights to The Grove to Santa Monica Pier to Malibu to Disneyland; I will cherish your company for the rest of my life and continue to inspire you as you have inspired me :D
