Having been a filmmaker for going on 10 years now. Jaysen has written 20 screenplays and directed many of them. He is also an actor who works with some of the top producers and directors in the southeast.
The first thing you notice about Jaysen is that he is an eloquent conversationalist.The next thing that became evident when asking about the movies he watched as a kid, is that he loves horror. Raised on the classics by his dad. I'm sure he will pass it on to his own son, and to us, through his filmmaking.
Don't Let The Light In is a good example. A tale of a young boy and his babysitter. As we are getting to know Sarah and Jack, the boy nonchalantly mentions that he has monsters in his room. Sarah patronizes the child but is surprised at what she discovers.
"Kimberly Dawn and I have been good friends for several years! She has always been so kind and supportive of my work as an actor and filmmaker. As Kim became interested in the craft of acting, I started noticing her work and how professional she comes across both promoting herself and others. After Kim worked with me as Featured Background on The Kill Switch and Partners, I felt it was time to see her in action as a Principal Character. When I started writing A Father's Love, something about the way she speaks and the way she looks became my vision for 'Nurse Millie'. In shooting her scenes on Sunday, November 8, 2015, Kimberly showed me she can hold her own. She is very natural, organic, and soft spoken. She definitely has a 'Niche'. I was so proud of her on this film and will definitely consider her for other projects I write in my future. She is a very sweet, compassionate, and caring woman. 'A GREAT FRIEND and HARD WORKER!'"
The Kickstarter to raise funds for Tree Hugger is nearing it's end with one more day to go. The goal is about halfway met but the funds will only be available if fully funded. Kira is very generous with her time whether it is exposing new talent in her cast and crew or calling attention to social issues in the films she creates.
Aislin answers my questions as we talk about her acting and performing career both deliberately and thoughtfully. Better
than you might expect from someone who is barely a teenager. You can tell she wants to get it right. Her poise is no surprise though
as she has been active as a performer since she was 3 years old. That builds character.|
The daughter of nature loving and artistic parents, her mother worked at a performing arts school for a time and her father is an art gallery owner in Asheville, North Carolina. She grew up surrounded by talent and enlightened minds. Not to mention the support she has received from her parents and mentors along the way. That can make a big difference in the formative years.
You can tell a lot about a person by the people they regard as role models. For Aislin it is Emma Watson for being a down to earth actor that uses her celebrity to bring attention to the causes she favors and Malala Yousafzai for her bravery in standing up for the right to go to school and get an education in a country where young girls are discouraged from doing so. A refreshing outlook for someone to aspire to.
Working with Josh and Kenny is unexplainable. They are the most understanding people. Being able to see the passion/love that they have for filmmaking in person is absolutely amazing. They are willing to cut loose and have fun when needed but they also know when it's time to be serious. They are willing to work with you and do whatever makes you comfortable. They are two of the most amazing people I have ever met. For me it was kind of challenging at first I wasn't able to channel my inner Jackie, because she was a complete opposite person of who I really am but I ended up getting used to it. - Mariah Brown - Jackie Blue in Honeyspider
"It was so much fun having a part in bringing such a complex and intriguing character to life. Robert is always such a professional and a pleasure to work with." - Mahri Shelton - Actor
