Citizen Prime Movie

I’d like to share with you a portion of my audition video for Who Wants To Be A Superhero. For those who have not heard about it, I am auditioning and encourage you to do the same. Inspiration is my main job and this venue is an awesome opportunity to inspire others.

Before you watch this portion of my audition film, some discussion might make a few of you more at ease. First and foremost, those of you who know me will notice a distinct difference between the real Citizen Prime persona and the inspirational Citizen Prime in the film.

The film highlights an inspirational concept for a super powered Citizen Prime and I’m completely over-the-top excited about sharing it with everyone. I look at it as a fantastic opportunity to give back to the inspirational genre that has clearly inspired me and so many of you. What this means is you will see a super powered Citizen Prime with powers that are hyperbole for my real life mission. In other words, while I cannot find and prime actual superheroes in this reality, I hope, through these works, to inspire others to live with The heart of a Hero and watch over their communities in a spirit of family, as we all are.

Enjoy the film.

The audition! Finally!!

Auditioned for the show this last weekend. It was a lot of fun. There were about 30 people there on Saturday (I didn’t go back Sunday). The pictures were fun. I had all kinds of kids coming up and taking pictures with me and another fellow named Altima X. Very nice guy. In fact, everyone there was fantastic. I think everyone took a positive cue from last year’s show and seems pre-disposed to work together and encourage one another. It was very nice to see.

Everyone shook hand and chatted like at a Comi-Con. Lots of fun.

The actual audition was pretty neat. They did it in conjunction with the WWE wrestling, presumable to split the production costs and as a conduit for traveling around to various cities. So half way through the wrestling mania stuff, they announced the superhero auditions. We had a captive audience – ha! – so one by one the contestants got up and did their spiel. I did okay, I think. Its hard to tell. So much was going on. I hit all my key components. I played the crowd. I played to the camera. I hope that and my application (double the original size, with Prime details) and the audition video gets their attention.

We’ll just have to wait and see, but at any rate, it was a lot of fun.

As a side note, getting lots of comments about the video. Everyone seems to be really excited about it. I’ll see if its okay to post it up on YouTube and the net, in general.

We Did It!

Comic Cover

Mike and I had a mutual admiration contest on the phone tonight. We chatted about the film and how effortlessly (see, once again) everything came together. Tangent: This might be a little hindsight as we actually worked very hard putting it together, but things synergized together creating a greater whole than we provided parts. Maybe that is the life lesson here. Work as hard as you can as life gives you lead and there is no telling what you can accomplish.

The script and the editing fit together perfectly. My biggest fear is that the actual story of what he can do would be lost. I mean, I know it so well, is that blinding me to everyone else going, “What the hell?” Mike, my wife, and everyone who has seen it so far assures me this is not the case. Sidenote: Its very sad seeing my own narcissism in this way! I know its not actually perfect, but it looks that way to me. Kind of like a baby. You are just kind of adoring toward this new creation. You can watch it over and again while others grew bored with it long ago.

I’m going to auditions this weekend so I’m glad it all came together in time. It was kind of down to the wire, at that.

Mike and his partner Steve said this was the most exciting thing to come through Savage Pictures in a long time. Regardless of what happens with the show, they want to co produce webisodes of the character. Hey, I’m all for that. Of course, we have to see what happens with the show, but either way, I’m sure we can work out a plan. Very exciting stuff.

I just saw the film ...

I just saw the film we made for WWTBASH. I knew we did a great job. I knew we hit everything. But … we killed it. We squashed it. Knocked it outta the park.

Is it bad to be so overwhelmed by your own creation? Well, I’ll indulge since Mike Fox was at least equal part creator of the audition film. He made it look so ridiculously awesome. I’ll freak out about it and point at him. He made it look so damn good. There, humility crisis averted.

I sent him an email. I’ll have to chat with him tomorrow about it. Damn. I am going to make an impression, even if I don’t get into the show. Now, if I can just get them to see it
