ArtsNaples World Festival

I am thrilled to be partnered with the ArtsNaples World Festival. In conjunction with Nadia Artman of Artman Productions and Trey Farmer III, Chairman of ArtNaples, we are producing a series of videos highlighting this years festival in Naples, FL.

I am helping them build their ArtsNaples World Festival YouTube channel.

ArtsNaples is dedicated to enriching the lives of children through art education programs. We recently filmed students from the Florida Gulf Coast University band, showing the children at Fun Time Early Childhood Academy how to play brass instruments. It was an inspirational day seeing the kids light up at hearing the trumpet, trombone and french horn and even getting a chance at playing the instruments themselves.

Please visit the education page on their site www.artsnaplesworldfestival.org/education to find out more about how you can help support this great mission.

The Mona Lisa Project is a way to tell your story though jewelry and personal heirlooms. These stories are then shared with the next generation. How did you get your engagement ring? When did you get your first  diamond? For a $500.00 tax deductible donation to the Glitter Foundation, we will videotape you telling your story about when and how your husband proposed or when your mother passed down that family treasure. The story is up to you! We’ll then add your video to the projects’ archive and give you a copy to keep for yourself. This inspiring archive will preserve the rich history of your heirlooms for future generations to cherish. Money raised by the Glitter Foundation will go to helping others receive funding for higher education. It’s a great cause!

In addition, sign up for a full Family History Video and we will contribute 20% of the price of the production to the Glitter Foundation in your name.

It’s ART vs. WAR in this song by Cary Vhugen. Who will win? Watch the video and find out. In this short film, I tried to explore the concepts of beauty, fate, nature and free will. We, as a human race, cannot deny our freedom of choice.

The future is not predetermined. Ignorance is taught and perpetuated BY PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD, the ONLY WORLD (with sweet sunlight, oxygen and natural resources) THAT WE HAVE! The images in this video contrast the beauty of life with the disturbing and dysfunctional state of the world circa 2010. This video shows the moment Benazir Bhutto was murdered. If such a brave and brilliant woman’s life can be extinguished, so easily, by raging religious zealots who live with so much hatred and ignorance in their hearts and minds, then this world has a serious problem. I SEE A FUTURE TIME where people in the Islamic countries will look back at this present time in history with shame. It’s a disgrace that innocent people can get blown up for simply going to market or to a school.

Some people see 2012 as “the coming apocalypse”. Others a U.S. Presidential race. I see it as the start of a new era of human enlightenment. With 2013 being YEAR ONE of the new era, so to speak. What we are seeing is a revolution of freedom in the world today. This is necessarily chaotic. The forces of freedom and literacy MUST DEFEAT the forces of tyranny, hatred and backwardness. There is no other way.

I’m an optimist. Despite all the crazy things that happen in this world, it’s all we have. One of these days people will wise up and attain enlightenment. I doubt it will be in my lifetime but I believe truth and peace will win over ignorance and war. If I’m wrong it’s alright, I would rather live my life deluded by optimism than consumed by hatred. If people erased ignorance and hatred from their hearts and lived every day with wonder and gratitude, the world would be a better place.

HOW DO WE GET PAST THE PRESENT DARK AGE?

1) Do good in the world and you will always have a clear conscience. 2) Choose wisdom over ancient dogma. 3) Try to become personally better, every single day of your precious life… and you too can be a part of the new enlightenment yourself.

There are paintings that islamic militants use to depict paradise, their twisted vision where the supposed virgins are waiting for them… In the meantime here on Earth, they fear and repress young girls and don’t let them get an education. Most likely because they are illiterate themselves. It’s a very sad situation for the year 2011, it’s ass backwards, and it doesn’t have a future. This video shows some of the beautiful artistic paintings that those militants use to brainwash their suicide bomber recruits. I thought is was relevant and quite perverse that they could use such lovely images of “paradise” to promote murder and death.

I sincerely believe that WE COULD FIX THIS situation IN ONE GENERATION. We  just need to educate all kids, all over the world… from kindergarden onwards and teach them proper and scientific human history… That’s it… Just as soon as we can stop being a divided nation ourselves. Like I said, EASY… if your enlightened.
