Music practice space and French singer needed in NYC for small film shoot May/June.
Music Practice Studio: [1 day filming] A space with a couch, basic gear. Preferably in an artist studio somewhere that feels like it could be in Bushwick with long grey maze-like hallways - an individual's workspace, not a bigger company. We will be a fully vaccinated production and following all the most current actor's union Covid Safety protocol. Small budget for the space use.
Charismatic female singer (or person with a nice voice) to perform a song in my film, a sound-a-like to le tourbillon in Jules and Jim - so someone who is fluent in French. Local to NYC!
Contact: Joanna Arnow: [email protected] if you want more info!

This S*x + Love issue lost us upwards of 100k in advertising dollars and created road blocks for us gaining new advertisers moving forward. Apparently s*x, drugs, and rock & roll is exclusive to the male experience. While we struggled a lot after this and had too many infuriating conversations, I would do it all again in a heartbeat. Here’s to being honest and not buckling for a buck. *xdrugsandrocknroll *xandlove
