Roxë15 is ALIVE and WELL

Roxë15

Some of you may be wondering: What ever happened to that sci-fi short film? Well, I’m here to tell you that Roxë15 is, indeed, alive and well.

Ohio-based editor Chris Croft and I have been working hard for the past several weeks….and (thank God!) the light at the end of the tunnel is getting closer and closer. I have had the great pleasure of editing sound effects (call me geeky or whatever, but I happen to LOVE editing audio). Anyhoo, the final pieces are coming into place. It has taken a while but as they say, good things come to those who wait — so stay tuned.

Also, I’m extremely excited and honored to announce that the feature-length screenplay of Roxë15 was recently selected to be a part of cultivEight, a national film development program sponsored by NEA Art Works! cultivEight is produced by PushPush Film and Theater in Atlanta, in partnership with BrandCinema in NYC and producer Alexander A. Motlagh. It’s an innovative, hands-on, filmmaker-centered incubator that develops out-of-the-box film projects over 8 months.  The object is to thoroughly and thoughtfully develop projects, connect filmmakers with producers and get projects into (what?) PRODUCTION!

Feeling extremely thankful/grateful that both the long and short of Roxë15 are moving in the right direction…..ever forward!

BEWARE THIS VIRUS

virus CU_brite

Of course, it doesn’t pop up until the year 2051…in virtual reallity….but you can never be too careful. It’s pretty focused on getting Roxë, but anything is posible in VR. And don’t get it twisted: this digital monster is stealth. It doesn’t speak, it doesn’t feel, and it’s brutally efficient. Just saying.

Check out the very un-monstrous Daniel Moser, who plays the virus in Roxë15, talking about his inhuman character. Daniel is nothing like the photo —- honest.

Roxë15 is raising money for post-production on IndieGoGo until Sept. 30. Help make this film happen — become a backer today!

Tragically Perverted: The Thirsty Barfly

Meet The Barfly, played by NYC actor Michael Kaplan in sci-fi short film Roxë15.
BARFLY_point_edit

The Barfly can usually be found at the end of the bar in Tranzit, the high-tech dive where Roxë makes her daily bread. He  is the quintessential mid-21st century man: disgruntled, full of rage and more than anything, THIRSTY — because like most people in the America of 2051, he can’t afford water — let alone a drink. The Barfly represents many future Americans: bled dry and mad about it. Somewhere along the way, he’s decided to take it out on Roxë….but she’s not having it.

Hear what the actor has to say about the low-life he plays so well:

WE HAVE 3 DAYS LEFT IN OUR INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN.
If you want to see a new and different possible future, help make it happen.
Become a backer at any level. Today’s a great day for it!

And oh yeah — in real life, Michael is a really cool guy and an illmatic actor. Keep up with him.

With 2 days and about 21 hours left on Kickstarter, we are SO AMPED to know about BLACK GIRLS CODE! BGC is an organization out of Oakland, CA created by biotechnology and engineering professional Kimberly Bryant. BGC is crashing through the digital gender divide. (Check them on CNN!)

BGC’s mission: To increase the number of women of color in the digital space by empowering girls of color ages 7 to 17 to become innovators in STEM fields, leaders in their communities, and builders of their own futures through exposure to computer science and technology.

Black Girls Code is EXACTLY the kind of place where a young Roxë would’ve started on her path to programming!
WE LOVE IT!

Hats off and bowing down to Ms. Bryant for setting these girls up to be the REAL ballers of the 21st century —- because as Roxë would tell you, technology WILL be the new currency…

Roxë15 celebrates a truth that’s BETTER than fiction.
HELP US CREATE A NEW VISION OF THE FUTURE.
