As you may have noticed things in the EKG world are moving a little slowly as of late. This is due in part to the new and exciting elements that I will be incorporating or rather changing in the site as well as some new and exciting other projects I am working on or in development of. Lets get started…
What’s been going on:
I would like to start by protesting the month of February! The month is altogether too short! I realize that it is only so by 2 to 4 days depending on what month you compare it to, but to me those two to four days actually feel like an entire week. Do you have the same problem? I think part of the speed for me is because it’s the month before the month before ones taxes are due… There is just way too much to do in February!! But we are past February and almost past March, and the day after, the day after, the day after tomorrow it will be April 1, also known as April Fools’ Day. I am excited about this because I am so ready for spring time. I love the spring!! I love the sun and the flowers and the birds. I love that it stays lighter later into the night and that the sun comes up earlier and earlier each day. I love spring cleaning, not just in the house, but in my mind, my body and my spirt. Out with the old, in with the new. Are you clearing anything in your life now?
Enough of my ranting, let’s get on to the exciting meat! What has been going on the last three months?
January… I actually have no memory of what I did in January. Wow, must have been a great month for me….
On to February: ICCE, the Indie Colorado Cinema Experience launched its first event. My company, Rock Rose Entertainment decided we wanted to support Colorado filmmakers as well as films that were shot in the state of Colorado. We did this by throwing them an event showcase where they could premier their work. I realize that that sounds like a pretty niche thing, however there are a lot of filmmakers here, and a lot of great quality stuff that is produced here, so much so that we decided to have this be a quarterly event rather then a yearly event. Our next ICCE (which is pronounced “ICE”) will be Friday, May 20th for anyone who is looking for something fun to do in Colorado. If you want to check out the program you can visit our ICCE facebook page here.
And on to March: For those of you who follow me on twitter you noticed that I had a lovely vacation with my friend Sid, this was the highlight of my month. If you don’t follow me on twitter you missed out, there were lots of fun photos
What’s going on in the site:
So what’s happening on the EKG website you might ask? Well, you my friends are going to be the first to know…. I have two new programs that are going to be integrated into the main site, a mentoring program as well as a pay it forward program. As you may have noticed in the last incarnation of the main EKG site I am slightly pulling the focus off myself and putting more focus on all women. When I first announced that change I did hear some concern about having the site be less personal, well, that is why I created All Things Erin. All Things Erin is going to stay personal, I will continue to have newsletters, Personal and professional photos, the women’s date, and most importantly, the Forum is going to stay the same. There are also elements of the main EKG site that are going to come over into the All Things Erin site. I am very excited about the chang and I hope you will be too.
What’s currently going on in my life:
Aside form the changing website I have been working on a film festival called LADmatters. Our mission with LADmatters is to explore matters of Life And Death through film and education. We announced the launch of the festival about three weeks ago and we already have over 65 films submitted from around the world. This is something I am so passionate and excited about I can hardly sit still in my chair as I write to you. Our website is still a work in progress but if you want to get some more info please come check it out. We also just started a Facebook page. Visit our site HERE and visit our facebook page HERE. Again, if you want to come to Colorado plan a trip out for September 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.
