While we celebrate the Fourth, there are refugee families who’ve walked thousands of miles to legally seek asylum in this country sleeping on concrete floors with aluminum blankets and no medical care. This is a stain on our nation and we need to do something now. Contact your representatives tomorrow to demand they #CloseTheCamps. #4thofjuly #AmericanPie #resist

Make no mistake, concentration camps are exactly what is happening now, in our country, with these children and families.
.
.
To quote AOC “DHS ripped 1000s of children from their parents & put them in cages w inhumane conditions.

They call their cells “dog pounds” & “freezers.”

I will never apologize for calling these camps what they are.

If that makes you uncomfortable, fight the camps - not the nomenclature.”

EVERYTHING is interesting. Look closer.
.
.
This is nothing but truth. Every project I’ve ever been a part of has involved me stepping in to learn, see and tell the stories of people’s experiences, passions and obsessions.
.
.
I am awakened to so many new ways of thinking, seeing and being as a result. This is what feeds the work I do and the joy I have for life in general.
.
.
TGIF and may your weekend bring many, many interesting moments your way.🙌🏼🙌🏼

Happy, happy Pride Month!! LGBTQ+ rights are human rights. Standing up, supporting and fighting for these rights is always necessary media.

Yesterday Necessary Media was honored to collaborate with @wearepwitp

I’m just a girl who decided to go for it.
.
.
#tbt 2010 This is me in Texas, directing a scene at a mud park with @bertkreischer for Bert the Conqueror, that included many, many dudes on ATV’s.
.
.
I had no AD (Assistant Director) I had no (Associate Producer) I didn’t even have a megaphone.
.
.

But I did stand on my tippy toes and wave 😝 and they heard me and listened and we shot some bass sh*t in the mud.
.
.
Only now, looking back, didn’t occur to me what I didn’t have... at the time I just knew what had to be done, was grateful for Bert and @sansscott @michael_belcher_dp who always helped me make it sure it did and a HUGE love for telling these crazy stories.

Who else is doin’ great today?! 😝🤪😂
.
.
Necessary Media had so much fun producing this dark comedic web series. The series follows four friends, who were destined for greatness, as they each return home for their 20th high school reunion.
.
.

The series is written by @_thejakediamond and @lowellbyers / directed by Jake Diamond. It stars: Lowell @lindsay.brill @jevonmcferrin @nickchoksi. It was beautifully shot by @35mmnyc and @michaelflawrencejr
.
.
The series asks the questions: What really is success? And how far are you willing to go to be successful?

Dear lord! This quote is REAL to me.
.
.
In the past, it was SO NICE to land a gig, have my start date emailed to me, my weekly rate direct deposited in my bank account and meals, travel, hotels etc... all taken care of by someone else while I focused on the shoots ahead. ❤️❤️❤️
.
.
It can be easy to forget all the reasons I started Necessary Media when the business side of telling great stories is hard, tedious and full of lessons I need to learn.
.
.
What keeps me going is that so much is at stake right now in our country. From dangerous new abortion laws, climate change denial and the despicable cancer that is white supremacy - so much effort is being made to push our society backwards.
.
.
This is not the time to play it safe. This is the time to put my abilities to work for the change makers who are fighting the good fight... and along the way become one myself.
.
.
Here’s to the coaches who push us to be better, the startups changing the game in their industries and all the leaders awakening us to better way of being. Heres to the everyday hero’s who aren’t playing it safe.

“If the path before you is clear, you’re probably on someone else’s.” - Joseph Campbell

Truly feeling this quote today. Starting my own production company, for me, means doing SO many things differently than how they were done in the companies I’ve worked for in the past.

My company will listen before pitching, advise and be of service to all prospective clients, not just the ones we have contracts with. And we will value diversity in our employees and the stories we tell and clients we work with.

We will bring joy and the highest level of execution to each project.

And we will have champagne at many points along the way .. lots of champagne! 🥂🍾🥂🍾😍 #necessary #necessarymedia #producer #storytelling #contentcreator #content #bts #producer #director #femaledirector #behindthescenes #production #create #collaboration #mycreativebiz #video #dailyquote #hustle #hardwork #transform #mindset #motivate #thinkbig #media #mompreneur #entrepreneur #entrepreneurlife #entrepreneurquotes

It really is that easy. Love these BTS photos from the Livi’n The Dream web series shoot... 6 days, 4 locations, 17 crew members and almost 40 actors ... proof that that the bigger the challenge, the higher you rise. 🙏🎬🎥.

“I hate to hear you talk about all women as if they were fine ladies instead of rational creatures. None of us want to be in calm waters all our lives.”
—Jane Austen, Persuasion
.
.
I SO feel this. Calm waters was never my vibe - even as a kid. The six year old me in the photo was immediately hooked on the shenanigans and rule breaking independence I found when watching I Love Lucy.
.
In a couple of years she’d be obsessed with Laverne and Shirley (right @shannonohurley!) and directing scenes from Rocky in her 2nd grade class.
.
It was no calm waters in my 20’s constantly feeling as if I had to justify having ZERO desire for marriage and kids any time soon. I wanted to “live life” as I slowly finished film school and cherished my freedom, friends (@masayew) and dated my face off in San Francisco. 😬😂😊
.

It was no calm waters carving out a career as a producer/director yet, I never cared or focused on that. I guess that’s how you know you are in your calling. 🙌🏼
.
.
It is def no calm waters starting your own production company ..! But again, that’s never been my goal.
.
.
And lastly, it’s DEF no calm waters getting professional pics of myself done 😬. Until Michel Leroy did them. 🙏😊
.
Cheers to chasing the big, scary, adrenaline inducing goals that affirm our abilities to shine our unique, powerful light.💪🏼😍🥰🤩

“The unexamined life is not worth living.” - Socrates

Shout out to @breather for providing me with beautiful space to do just that! (Oh and to get work on some future goals!)
.
.
My month of reflection and recharging is almost up and with the exception of a couple fleeting moments where I panicked 😬😬that I “should be hustling” it was the BEST time I’ve spent so far building my business.
.
.
I RELAXED. I was present. I read crazy insightful business books. I met with friends and got back to the gym. I took a four week webinar called Infinite Possibilities with ten fantastic women - led by the brilliant, funny, business coach @carolynherfurth 🙏♥️
.
.
I reflected on how far I’ve come and made concrete plans to bring even more goodness to my clients with my equally brilliant business coach @elizabethderby 🙌🏼♥️
.
.
Oh yeah, I even booked my next gig! The moral to this story: Slowing down is EVERYTHING. 🙏❤️🙏❤️
