About OWF  (Out Web Fest)

OWF is the world’s only digital festival dedicated to celebrating web series, short films and music videos by and for the global queer community. OWF’s mission is to provide the opportunity for all queer content creators to connect with the global community and celebrate the progressive evolution of LGBTQ+ entertainment. OWF breaks the mold of other festivals by giving prominence and a voice to the honest and unfiltered digital short-form storytelling that does not rely on access to resources, lofty budgets, or elite “movers and shakers” in the industry.

In the 21st Century short-form content leads as the hottest and fastest growing category in digital entertainment and we believe it is the perfect forum to share multiple perspectives of queer culture that make our stories some of the most innovative, ground-breaking, and unique in the world. OWF introduces international and local digital content creators, producers, and fans to inclusive programming that acknowledges the cultural significance of this revolutionary intersection of medium and storytelling.

This festival will feature screenings, panels with industry experts, and a pitchfest which will allow creators a chance to speak one on one with working industry professionals.

Amazon is going to teach kids to love reading books

I am very interested in how Amazon is using it’s positive business practices to instill a love of reading for kids between 5-12 with unlimited access to short stories for $2.99 a month. Amazon Studios is partnering with Signature Stories to bring stories to life with the voice acting talents of Aidy Bryant (Saturday Night Live) and Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants). They are using new stories that kids love like Niko and the Sword of Light and Danger & Eggs to the app.

The launch will be at the 2017 San Diego Comic Con where they will have the opportunity to see the videos and listen to the talent behind this app. Kids will be able to read along with favorite characters with original stories written by the shows’ writers. They will be new adventures that go beyond the TV series storylines that light the imagination of children.

“We couldn’t be more excited to kick off Signature Stories and are thrilled to be teaming up with great talent such as Aidy Bryant and Tom Kenny,” said Michael Robinson, Director of Consumer Products for Amazon Education. “We’re always looking for ways to help kids develop a love of reading and we’re looking forward to bringing on new brands, new characters, and new voices to Amazon Rapids over the coming months.”

Danger & Eggs follows the endless adventures of a fearless, teal-haired future stuntwoman, D.D. Danger, and her ever-cautious best friend, a giant, talking egg, named Phillip. As the daughter of a world-renowned daredevil, D.D. is always chasing her next big thrill.

Niko and the Sword of Light follows 10-year-old Niko who is the last of his kind in a strange, fantastical world. He must embark on an epic quest to defeat the darkness and bring the light back to his land. Armed with his magic sword, brave Niko journeys to the Cursed Volcano, making new friends and powerful foes along the way, all while uncovering secrets about his mysterious past.

“We’re excited for kids to connect with our characters in new ways as they tag along on epic adventures together while reading on Amazon Rapids,” said Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios. “Both pilot episodes were popular among viewers and we’re thrilled that the shows’ quirky, engaging storylines and humor can help inspire kids to read.”

Amazon Rapids is available for iOS, Android and Amazon Fire devices. Parents who sign up now can subscribe at an introductory price of $2.99 per month to give their kids unlimited access to short stories. Parents can start a free two-week trial at http://rapids.amazon.com.

I’m all in for the new original Viki series Dramaworld premiering April 17th. I had the opportunity to interview  Liv Hewson (Claire) and Sean Dulake (Joon Park) and briefly chat with Chris Martin (Director/Writer) and Sebastian Lee (Producer). Sean Dulake and Chris Martin worked on creatingScreen Shot 2016-04-16 at 12.30.54 AM an original series that would appeal to the passionate fans of Viki from across the world. From that dream Dramaworld was born! It’s a ultimate love letter to anyone who’s a major fangirl or fanboy of a TV or Movie. You know the person who is consumed and lives to talk about their favorite rather you want to hear about it or not!

The funny series is a show within a show. Claire is a major fangirl of Joon Park a K-Drama star who she follows in every series he stars in and she’s currently consumed with ‘Taste of Love‘ a IMG_7105distraction from her real life of being a student who works PT in the family business. Through a zany mishap she’s transported into ‘Dramaworld‘ where she meets a fanboy played by Justin Chon (Seth) who’s a helpmate aka instagator to make sure each series goes according to plan. Boy meets girl, mishaps conspire to keep them apart and finally boy gets girl (or girl gets boy .. I am a feminist). But the meat of Dramaworld is that Taste of Love is off center and it’s not going according to plan. So it’s up to our stars to realign the stars so that love can bloom.

I was able to see the first two episodes and it’s the perfect blend of whimsy, humor and soap opera drama that transcends language (don’t worry they have subtitles). I don’t want to give anything away but it all makes sense with little throwaway lines explaining how everyone can understand each other despite speaking different languages, how Claire got to Dramaworld and it’s different than the real world.

The cast said that it was inspired by a love of Back to the Future or that it’s Narnia with the wardrobe transporting the hero to another world but I think of it as a mix of Pleasantville and Nurse Betty come to mind for me but other than that it’s a really original concept that nobody has done right in a long time.

If your in Los Angeles and got tickets for the Dramaworld premier Saturday, April 16th at the Ace Hotel Theatre than make sure you say ‘hi’. If you didn’t get your tickets it’s sold out so you’ll have to watch me interviewing cast on periscope and streamup (Cherry_LA). You’ll be able to enjoy the new Viki series on Sunday.

What is the most exciting — and most terrifying — thing that can happen to a K-drama fanatic?Claire Duncan is a 20-year-old college student who finds her real life boring. Maybe that’s because she’s never looking up, instead having her nose buried in her smartphone and watching her IMG_7106favorite Korean drama, “Taste of Love,” starring her favorite actor Joon Park (Sean Dulake). Joon Park plays the hot chef and protagonists in “Taste of Love” who is still waiting for his one true love to come into his life. Through a touch of the supernatural and a sprinkle of magic, Claire’s desire to shed her own boring life and live in the world of “Taste of Love” comes true when she is transported into her favorite drama and comes face-to-face with Joon Park! There, Claire also meets the mysterious waiter Seth Ko, who made his own journey into the drama years ago from the real world and mentors Claire on how to navigate the drama world. When the appearance of Claire throws “Taste of Love” off-balance, causing other dramas to splice into the series, what kind of crazy adventure will Claire experience? “Dramaworld” is a 2016 Viki original series, produced in partnership. Set in Los Angeles and Seoul, the first-ever American-Korean mashup series is written by Josh Billig and Chris Martin and directed by Chris Martin.
