The three day festivities will include industry speaker panel, parties, screenings, digital pitchfests and the Revry Visibility Awards! OWF is the must attend event for creators and fans who want to support diversity in entertainment with established and new storytellers.

The closing night awards will include prizes like free sound stage rentals courtesy of Shamrock Studios, Revry Development and Distribution deals, as well as an Audience Award with automatic entry into Rio Web Fest including travel and accommodations to beautiful Rio de Janeiro.
This year OWF is partnering with the New Zealand Web Fest, International Online Web Fest and Buffer Festival for their first Buffer Festival LA on May 17th (including Dodie Clark, Louis Cole, Matthew Santoro, Mikey Murphy & Sabrina Cruz). “We’re incredibly excited to join forces with Revry’s OWF in the very first Buffer Festival LA. Revry’s OWF has been a leader in promoting diversity through elevated content and stories about real people and real circumstances, something Buffer Festival is passionate about as we make our expansion across North America,” shares Scott Benzie, CEO of Buffer Festival.

“OWF has made a mark in the world of content creation in highlighting unique, groundbreaking, and sometimes subversive content that is too often overlooked by the mainstream festivals,” says Revry CEO, Damian Pelliccione. “In the 21st Century, short-form content leads as the hottest and fastest growing category in digital entertainment and OWF creates the perfect forum to share multiple perspectives of queer culture that makes our stories some of the most innovative, ground-breaking and unique in the world.”

I’m very excited to attend the preview of Gaetano Pesce Molds (Gelati Misti) presented by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles at the Pacific Design Center.
The exhibition will be from September 3 – November 27, 2016 at MOCA Pacific Design Center
“I hope my work is acknowledged for its multidisciplinary nature and its curious diversity,” remarks artist Gaetano Pesce.
MOCA Senior Curator Bennett Simpson and John R. Geresh, Pesce collector & scholar organized the exhibition that focuses on the Italian artist’s use of two dimensional cast-resin reliefs that he calls ‘industrial skins’ and will have his body like vases, a selection of chairs and lamps that use his casting techniques with resin and molds.
Pesce has more than four decades of work that span architecture, exhibition and industrial design that are playful, eccentric and utilizes the medium’s variation of pigmentation, transparency and plasticity.
“Gaetano Pesce is a true icon of contemporary design,” says Simpson. “His cast resin works evoke bodies, fungi, lava flows, and ocean life—seductive and repellent in their strange beauty. It is an honor to bring his work to MOCA.”
Though many of his vases (Amazonias, Twins, Rock, Spaghetti, Pompitou, Medusa, and Tre Piedi) have structural foundations that begin with the same bullet-shaped underpinnings, their final forms are anything but identical. Each bares the process of its own making, capturing gravity and the velocity of Pesce’s hand, which renders some things humorously anthropomorphic or blithe and painterly, and others unsettlingly corporeal.
Gaetano Pesce was born in 1939, La Spezia, Italy. He has led a forty-plus-year career of exuberant and groundbreaking work in architecture, urban planning, interior, exhibition, and industrial design. His engagement with the avant-garde began with his studies in architecture from 1958 to 1963 at the University of Venice, where he became one of the founding members of Gruppo N, a collective focused on expanding the idea of programmed art that emerged out of the Bauhaus movement. During his college years, Pesce worked at three notable Murano glass factories: Moretti, Vistosi, and Venini; this occupational education in Venetian glasswork has informed much of the way he wields and approaches resin as a part of his current practice.
Geresi has written, “Pesce’s work in resin is an extension of the 20th century’s greatest Italian glass artist and is as continuous with that tradition as can be believed.”
His career has also led him to teaching at prestigious institutions such as Cooper Union, New York; Carnegie Mellon, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; the Institute of Architecture and Urban Studies, Strasbourg, France; Domus Academy, Milan; and the Architectural School of São Paulo. He has mounted over two dozen solo exhibitions and featured in a number of group exhibitions, most notably the seminal 1972 exhibition The New Domestic Landscape: Achievements and Problems of Italian Design at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York. Pesce’s work is featured in more than 30 permanent collections across the world, including MoMA; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein, Germany; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs at the Louvre in Paris.
Gaetano Pesce: Molds (Gelati Misti) is organized by MOCA Senior Curator Bennett Simpson with John Geresi, and with curatorial support by Executive Assistant to the Chief Curator Hana Cohn.
Lead support for MOCA Pacific Design Center is provided by Charles S. Cohen.
Exhibitions at MOCA are supported by the MOCA Fund for Exhibitions with lead annual support provided by Delta Air Lines, Shari Glazer, Hästens, and Sydney Holland, founder of the Sydney D. Holland Foundation. Generous funding is also provided by Jerri and Dr. Steven Nagelberg, and Thao Nguyen and Andreas Krainer.

I’m back to using my Class Pass and was excited to see that the Sweat Garage on Fairfax was on the app. I LOVE that it’s just a short walk from my place so that I can impulsively sign up for a class!
When I signed up they were very clear you need a towel and water bottle but I didn’t realize HOW serious until I got my sweat on. I came about twenty minutes early so that I could sign up and check out the gym.
When I arrived the young woman at the front desk was warm and friendly. She asked if I needed help and when I told her it was my first class she promptly checked me in, explained where the locks were located, asked if I needed a towel or water, asked if I’d done interval training before and that the trainer would show me the basics.
Smiling BEFORE the class
I walked in and it looked like a crossfit gym with stations set up for interval training. Sweat Garage has a variety of equipment/stations including a wall of treadmills, a variety of weights, jump ropes, tubes and steps that can be used in the open space. Every class is different with the list of stations and workout times for each on a white board near the front door.
This is one crazy tough workout that doesn’t use major amounts of weights but instead is using your body and lots of cardio. It’s an individual workout where you are allowed to work at your own pace
Able to smile after the class
(and the instructor asks if you have any issues that need to be accommodated) and I tried to push myself to not coast. So I put the sweat in the sweat garage. Even after a thorough warm up going from treadmill to floor (light weights) it really got my heart rate up and made me feel like I’d won the war against my own sloth body.
This is a fun workout in a no frills gym that is all about the sweat and mixing up the routine so that you don’t coast. If you are interested in an interval gym open to men and women that’s in West Hollywood check out Sweat Garage.
801 N Fairfax Ave.
Los Angeles, CA. 90046
Sweat Garage is High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) in a fun, positive, motivating class. We have one workout of the day or WOD. We use Woodway® treadmills, free weights, resistance bands, kettle bells, med balls, jump ropes and functional movements in every WOD. All of our workouts are based on The AMRAP System. AMRAP stands for As Many Reps/Rounds As Possible.
AMRAP – 3 minutes
10 Push Ups
The goal is to push as hard as you can to complete As Many Reps As Possible. Each workout is approximately one hour. The WOD changes every day and targets different muscle groups so you can sustain a five-times-a-week schedule without overworking your body. Consistency with your workouts is the key to achieving your fitness goals.

I’m having a major Gym Crush on the Phoenix Effect Gym in West Hollywood, CA! I joined Classpass earlier this month as I get back to fitness and saw Phoenix Effect on my list of local available gyms. At first I thought it was a CrossFit but after speaking with Beth Bishop (Partner/Coach) about the gym philosophy it was eye opening.
I LOVED the class. It was such fun and very challenging! I have to admit when I first walked in I was intimidated by all of the great bodies of the men and women working out in the early morning class. But from the first smile it was a welcoming space for me. Check out my brief interview with Beth who showed the circuit and how she modified it for my gym level! (youtube)
Beth started out with a warm up that had me sweating like gangbusters and from their we (I mean everyone but me) ran around the block (Beth had me run to the end of the street). She than assigned everyone to a team (I was number 7 with two super nice guys) and had everyone start at different stations. As you can see from my video with Beth (who ran through all the stations) some of the workouts she modified for me (to work on form or because I’m physically unable to do some things) at my workout level of ability as well as making them more challenging for those who needed a bump.
I really can’t recommend enough the Phoenix Effect Gym in West Hollywood! The staff and members are friendly and welcoming (so many people said ‘hi’ introduced themselves and asked if I was a first timer AND words of encouragement!). Don’t worry that your not ‘fit enough’ or that your imperfect body should keep you from they gym and working out. The Phoenix Effect Gym is great for anyone at any level who wants a gym where they are able to modify the workouts for whatever fitness level you are at and have fun! It’s such a team gym that after every workout they take a class photo AND they organize monthly social events for members!
