Of Artists and Animals Trailer

Presents:
"Of Artists and Animals"
Teaser trailer
https://vimeo.com/453384466
Synopsis:
What does it mean to be a man, to be a warrior? Some people are artists, others are athletes, and then there are those who are just pure animals. Some men define themselves through art and others define themselves through physical dominance. Two brothers prepare for an upcoming mixed martial arts fight, one the artist and the other, the animal. The aftermath from this upcoming fight will forever change both men.

Director Biography - Hayden Livesay
Hayden Livesay is an actor, writer, director known for his work on the award winning comedic series, The Pool, and is also the lead actor in the feature film, Canned Hunt, now streaming on Amazon Video.

Director Statement
How men define masculinity? What it means to be a man today is a very interesting topic and one I wanted to explore. Especially when those men are martial artists. I believe there are two types of fighters. There are artists who are technicians in the ring and are always thinking multiple moves ahead like a chess player. Then there are the animals, who react and use pure animalistic instincts. The animal defines himself by using physical dominance, while artist uses strategy. How do two different men with a drastic different outlook on life operate? What happens when those two men happen to be brothers? These are things I wanted to dive deep into. Of Artists and Animals is a slice of life of just that. It is a small piece in a much larger story. Whether an artist or an animal, both have the warrior spirit. It is something that can be taught but few men and women posses it today. Warriors are a unique group with a relentless work ethic. George St.Pierre, one of the greatest mixed martial artists of all time and former UFC Welterweight champion said, "There are fighters, athletes, and artists. Which one are you?"

Roughly 60,000 people die in Los Angeles county every year. More than 1,000 of those pass without a next-of-kin or without identification. With no one to claim these bodies and see to their final disposition, the county takes responsibility for putting them in the earth.

Karen L. Kaplan

"CONJOINED"
(Is this chilling story Sci-fi or real?)

CONJOINED is an exciting, paranormal addition to the award winning
feature-length screenplay
"An Authentic Life" from Karen Kaplan which won the "Hemingway Award" at the 2020 LA Live film festival in Los Angeles, California.

Karen Kaplan is an international speaker and the author of DESCENDANTS OF RAJGROD - Learning To Forgive

KarenLKaplan.com

"DESCENDANTS OF RAJGROD - Learning To Forgive" is
available on @AMAZON

Karen Kaplan was a featured speaker in Chicago at an international conference titled PATHOLOGICAL NARCISSISM: WHO ARE THEY AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT THEM
Link here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPNJrx6h7yU

"DESCENDANTS OF RAJGROD - Learning To Forgive"
FIVE star reviews from readers and literary critics on AMAZON
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

DESCENDANTS OF RAJGROD - Learning To Forgive Rated and reviewed by readers and educators as "A RIVETING, CANDID AND TRIUMPHANT STORY OF FORGIVENESS".

Karen Kaplan tells the story of her father, Arie Kaplan, who after surviving the Holocaust in the forests of Eastern Europe, limped through the rest of his life by lying, cheating, abusing his family
and never letting go of his rage. Many years later, Her father is on his deathbed and Karen is an unhappy single mother
who realizes that she is consumed with a similar feeling of rage.

She begins keeping a journal, and in the course of writing about her father,
starts to understand that she has inherited his 'survivor mentality'
and is at risk of losing sight of ever being content.

In sharing her story, Karen Kaplan struggles to do the most challenging thing she's ever done; forgive her father, and let go of the legacy of bitterness and fear that has hovered over the Jewish community following centuries of anti-Semitism.

I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
Well, my toughest challenge was when I had to overcome a 10 year prison sentence from ages 19-27 in which I overcame and came out victorious and an overall better person. They’re a lot of obstacles that I had to overcome just make it to this point. I went from being homeless and sleeping on the beach to owning my own 501 c 3 non profit. I went through everything from jealousy to envy to losing friends/ family because of the path that I chose. I have a story to tell i remember years ago the young lady that i was dating at the times stated that she didn't “believe in me or my dreams”. so now 6 years later I'm living proof that regardless of what people say you can make it

You have to believe in your self and Speak it into Existence you have the power of life and death on the tip of your tongue you can create dreams and you can destroy them you manifest it.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
The word Success means Life because the life I live is a successful one. if you the google the word of God if you live accordingly your life was meant for success and abundance that's his promise and he's doing it for me. I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me. My power and my success comes from who is within so without God their would be no success. I Thank you father for opening up doors.

From NPR's "The Pulse" On-Set Therapy For a lot of writers, actors, and directors embodying someone else can take a toll on your psyche. Dr. Barton Goldsmith talks about his work as an on-set film therapist, and how it can lead to a more productive movie making experience.

I cant wait for FILM FEST LA 2019
What are the award categories? Hope you have another year of wonderful successes and fabulous films 🎥👏
I found the trailer for this new movie called Solis that looks really enticing, if you're looking for some science fiction this might be the movie for you. It follows an asteroid miner who finds himself trapped on an escape pod that is rocketing towards the sun. I'm excited to check this movie out on the 26th, the trailer gives me big time 2001: A Space Odyssey vibes:
ok, i like, i like, i like it!
Hey, family and friends our screenplay was selected in the LA Film Fest 2018 in Los Angeles, Ca. Check out our home page, www.dchomegrown.com. The date is Nov 10th. We will truly represent DC!
Give #HuntingEmma a watch. It is South African survival-thriller that thoroughly impressed me with its excellent control of tension which inevitably led to many gritty action scenes. If you have any room at your festival I suggest contacting the filmmakers.
Thank you for choosing my scripts to compete in Film Fest L.A.: "Midnight on 6th Street," "Wicked Willows," "The Web," & "Dear Tom Hardy: i love you." I am very honored by the Love you have shown to my words. ♥️
