My United States of Whatever - Bat caves within bat caves, my space on ponderings/beliefs, film experiences, acting, perspectives in and out of things political or spiritual, things I'm fond of, art, comics, video games etc.
I currently work in film with a production crew working behind the scenes as a Grip, PA, Boom operator setting up/hauling film equipment, and often recording sound on various productions. I also do Brand Amabassador work sometimes to help fund my acting career and life. Find me on IMDb and LinkedIn regarding all that jazz.
I only want to work with genuine artists who are about custom creativity/characters and imaginative stories - not those who feel they are "thrown" or stuck within Indie or whatever they're doing who view "making it in Hollywood" as a 'Be all - End all' regarding goals. I try my best not to waste my time/resources on those who kick anything that isn't a Ferrari off of a cliff if you know what I mean. Genuine creative honest people with compelling ornate/inspirational projects are my goal.

Today I looked down the Yahoo news page and this article popped out to me from the Huffington Post, “What Happened When A Biracial Woman Was Photoshopped In 18 Different Countries”
I commented “They should’ve gotten REAL high-end Photoshop wizards not students or people who are “learning Photoshop” for this project. All of these are just terrible and look like a freshman high school student class test. ::shakes head:: hardly any of these renditions take into consideration proportion or facial symmetry, white balancing, the eyes look like stickers etc. #InternetFail”
If you go to the article link you’ll see what I mean hahaha : http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/08/priscilla-yuki-wilson-different-countries-photoshop_n_5775200.html?fb_action_ids=710785148995985&fb_action_types=og.comments&fb_source=aggregation&fb_aggregation_id=288381481237582
I know it’s an “experiment on cultural perception” but I and others are all chiming in as to why it’s an insanely poorly displayed/documented “experiment” along with the cases and points. I’m just bringing awareness to the evidence of why it is poor and why it poorly represents and generalizes other countries so people can see a little bit deeper into why articles like this can manipulate and generalize professions, races, and countries so easily with sloppily published/conducted experiments like this can boldly slap on “representative of the variety of expectations that cultures around the world have for women, and how universally difficult it can be to fit in.” All the Photoshopping examples they list in the article make the writers “purpose message” of this article look like a joke. I believe that a good portion of the artists didn’t understand what was being asked of them to support the message of the given article assertively nor fairly.
This article doesn’t even mean that bi-racial women have a tough time in the beauty industry - this “experiment” would’ve resulted in the same way with any type of woman.
What’s more interesting than the article/bad Photoshop? The comments/interpretations of the people. Hahahaha
As all things, it first begins as an interest and loving to create things/acting goofy and enjoying seeing people laugh. But with the sweets come the sour of certain people telling you “Ohhh, uhh I don’t think you should pursue that.” or “I don’t think you were born/cut-out for that in life.” or “Why don’t you just get a degree in Business cuz everyone is doing that and making lots of money.”
I gravitated to the hands-on creative path from the beginning, I didn’t want to be doing what everyone else was doing naturally, I felt that for me to follow everyone’s popular life path option wasn’t right, and because I had people telling me what they think I should be doing whenever I voiced my opinions I hiked on harder up the mountain without looking back.
When you have successes it’s a great feeling, but along the way/before/after/during there are going to be mishaps for some people as well on that hike. Those people you thought were artsy/geeky/cool/professional before might lie to you, might turn on you for villainous reasons, sometimes productions break in two, sometimes evil dictators gain power over the good people at a time and foils your looking-forward-to-good-projects thing. So, those bad things that happen drive people like me even harder - it becomes more than an interest to passion to goal thing - It then becomes a Justice thing. That’s why I’m never turning back down the mountain.
