Introduce Yourself : Hello Stage 32 creatives! by Joey Madia

Hello Stage 32 creatives!

Welcome to everyone new to Stage 32 and hello again to those who have already been a part of Introduce Yourself Weekends! I am an actor, director, and screenwriter who also does Historical Education (I am preparing to tour as Che Guevara next summer) and content creation: I am currently casting the first season of my forthcoming Audio Drama "The Cannon and the Quill" (based on my one-man show about the Golden Age of Piracy, which was featured on a TV show sponsored by Tokyo Disney) and renovating a corn crib in eastern Ohio into a production studio (sound and video) and mini-theatre. Three of my screenplays are currently in the contest circuit and have had some success--one is a quarter-finalist right now in the Screencraft Comedy contest. I am going to be writing some how-to blogs for Stage 32 in the near future, which I am excited about. I am also co-producing a web series called "Roads beyond the Known," a paranormal travelogue in support of my forthcoming book "Watch Out for the Hallway: Our Two-Year Investigation of the Most Haunted Library in North Carolina" co-written with my wife. Have an awesome weekend!!

Hi Joey, Iove to hear more about your 'roads beyond the known web series!'. And I am curious how your two-year investigation went with the 'paranormal' activities. Personally, I would love to see the word paranormal disappear out of the 'woowoo, scary' corner and more appear in the 'these out of the ordinary happenings are very real and have a reason why they happen, or in other words 'reality corner'. I am curious how you portray the paranormal part in your webseries. As for myself I am dealing with an very 'out of the box' experience, which in my eyes is an example of a very real thing in the near future: 'consciousness hacking technology'. In my case over a period of 2 years a lover was in a coma for a while and communicating in handwritten letters on my computer screen he even physically died and came back. Doctors denied it because of legal issues.

I wrote the book Forty-NIne Days. A sensuous journey in the modern Afterlife. I got approached by a film director and now I am writing the screenplay for it. Any information suggestions and ideas are welcome. Thank You!!
