Do I have your attention? ;->
My husband is an actor and I have seen the joy that he experiences through creating a story and sharing it with an audience. One of the liveliest parties you’ll ever attend is an Opening Night party after the first performance is over. The cast and crew gather and share stories of the process, how they felt about their performances and laugh (or complain) about any mistakes in the show. I love talking with actors about “how they remember all those lines” ;-> and to see if what they imagined had turned out the way they wanted it to. I just love it! I enjoy the creative process and support it whenever I can. (And yes, rehearsals have happened in my basement.)
Recently I was asked to take part in a project that has every intention of growing through word, and funding, from the exact people that are the intended audience. Doesn’t that make all the sense in the world? Instead of a movie being made with money from people who could care less about the story, and care more about the financial bottom line, we have a chance to fund a movie that is about something we want to see! Love it!
The talented, and almost-too-good-looking-that-I-can’t-even-look-at-him, Shemar Moore of the Young And The Restless and Criminal Minds is creating a movie project called The Bounce Back and he wants us to help fund his project and… enjoy some fantastic perks too! If you like romantic comedies why not help create a movie that you’ll want to go see? Makes sense, right?
About the Movie
“The Bounce Back” is a heartfelt romantic comedy about finding the courage to love after love has let you down.
When I read “The Bounce Back” – that very same issue was at the core of the script and the character, Matthew Taylor. I saw a lot of myself in Matthew, although I’ve never written a book (but I’m thinking about it now, hint, hint). I felt a kindred spirit to what Matthew was going through and my own life. Matthew loses his wife, his first love and after a short recovery creates a best selling book and a system of survival in order to shield himself from the pain. He throws himself into a year long speaking tour.
That system of survival; his book and speaking tour, keeps him from falling in love again when he meets the perfect girl, the beautiful and zany Kristin Moreland. Matthew realizes that he has to renounce his book and the world he has created around it in order to take the big unknown plunge of letting himself fall in love again.
I think there is a wonderful poetry to that, the idea of risking it all for love. And I feel, in my heart, that is why we’re here on this planet. To love. After I put down the screenplay, “The Bounce Back,” I knew I had to make this movie simply because I believe in love all the way down to the fabric of my being.
Check out this sneak peek. Enjoy!
I am now a fan of Nadine Velasquez. So cute! So funny!
