Anything Goes : If you had the opportunity to… by Luis R. Quintero

Luis R. Quintero

If you had the opportunity to…

If you had the opportunity to get a message across to a large group of people, what would your message be?

Michael "Cap" Caputo

I'm competent put me on your list!

Stephen Collinsworth

To empower people to take control of there lives and take a stand for what they believe.

Mohit Arora

Vasudev Kutumbkum:)

Casey Rhodes

"Ladies and gentlemen. Testicles. That is all."

Brian Bullock

I think Bill & Ted said it best: "Be excellent to one another!" :)

Juliet Plumptre

Get to know Jesus! and like Bill and Ted said Be excellent to each other ....and party on dudes!!

Juliet Plumptre

Yes agree with Kelly about the mistake thing....if you make a mistake learn from it and also dont give up too!!

Totie Herman

That selfishness and ignorance are not good qualities. That we should try harder to understand others and to work together with the goal of common sense rule. A minor form of utopia designed for the well being and overall quality of life for all. (I know, keep dreaming...)

Jennifer Lau

Dream. Fly. Soar. Never give up. <3

Cat Collins

Don't let your dreams remain as such. Forge your way through life until those dreams become reality and when they do, dream up some more.

Joseph Carter

Know when to quit.

Michael "Cap" Caputo

Oh, we are being metaphysical. My bad.

Michael Carten

You will always have to work for your goals. Hard work beats talent.

Richard "RB" Botto

At least equal, Michael. I think people put so much hard work into perfecting their craft, and so little work into making connections that can help them bring their talents to the world. Although I have to admit, I know some screenwriters who believe a great contacts and mediocre writing will see them through.

Totie Herman

Thanks for helping us try to make those connections RB....much much appreciated and I hope I can benefit from all of your hard work!!!

Christopher Burr

"Contrary to popular belief, you actually CAN do anything.."

Richard "RB" Botto

Hey Totie. I appreciate those good words, my friend. It's been awesome to see so many people find work, get projects off the ground, and simply make great connections. Those who work at it are getting it done.

Totie Herman

Cheers!

Teri Michelle "Elle" Cochran

If we come together, we can accomplish anything

Rick Burtt

Learn to adapt.

Dustin Day

Power corrupts and power corrupts absolutely - so watch your back.

W. Paul Hughes

There is life beyond our "nowness."

Flavia Di Bartolo

If people make you to feel subdued you have to shut out the bad energy and let in the good energy.

Rob Ashkenas

Hire ME!

Kent Mitchell

One message that I would try to get across to people is world peace. Another message would be on accountability. People need to be held accountable for their actions.

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” Check out my last music video, a one-shot take we did for charity. There were only a handful of professionals, the rest of the people were made up of locals who just wanted to get involved, a magical project raising money for a great cause. Please spread the love - and thanks for watching. MAK director/producer [vimeo.com/35688759][1] [1]: http://vimeo.com/35688759

You can be in this business and still be nice.

Luis R. Quintero

Be a sponge and never stop learning!

Ayal Pinkus

Do what you enjoy doing. Chances are you'll become good at it (and possibly financially successful along the way), but worst-case you had a fun life.

Luke Aherne

Run away from anyone who claims to have all the answers and go towards the one who has all the questions!

Ayal Pinkus

Good one Luke. A variant of "Question everything."

Richard "RB" Botto

Accept and digest constructive criticism...always...but don't accept negativity.

wendy thoren

share. play well with others. trust your gut.

Luis R. Quintero

Great one RB! Thank you all for the wonderful thoughts!

Stewart Moore

'I just called to say I love you'

Victoria Victorialand

"I'm kidding..." Ok. "I come in peace"

Hedley Allen

Jolynn Carpenter

Don't accept your current situation as "inevitable." If you don't like the ways things are, change them.

Peter Wood

Find out what you love doing then work out how to make it pay. OR, Be yourself! (It took me years to work that one out... How long have I spent trying to be/fit in with that others wanted me to be? Don't ask).

Ray Robinson

Lighten up, people.

Sarah Little

Love.

Jori Van de Vyver

Stop wasting time, live!

Michelle Falcone

That in every moment, multiple miracles exist. The only thing we need to be able to see them is a willingness to see them. The greater the perceived crisis, disaster, despair, the greater the magnitude of the miracles. Seeing them is what will change the world and reality as we currently know it. Choose to see the miracles that exist.

Karla Avendano

Stop bullying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There's people committing suicide because of bullies

Juliet Plumptre

I have another one or two....Dont undervalue yourself and also they say first impressions count but its the last impression when you leave is the one that will stick so make sure whataever happens when you leave a project or person you leave on a good note!!

Rick Winslow

"Click here". :-/

Andy Wright

Don't give up on your passion ever. Even when you think there is no more to give and you want to turn back before actually making the breakthrough you have always wanted, just be bloody minded and determined and hang in there. Ignore the doubts, trust yourself, and go with your gut instincts. I know I am bloody good at what I can do, and sooner or later the right people will see that and help me make it all happen.

Alvin Eric Vazquez

YES! Andy I am Agreed!

Ann H Barlow

Read my books and help me make some great movies! The story is epic and would be magic on the big screen.

Jacqueline Astbury

Please, please I can do so much more than background lol :)

Jasmine McAtee

I don't feel her post is misplaced at all. The message she'd like to get across to a large group of people is to not treat people who work as background actors with disrespect. It's valid, given the topic of the post. There's also a big difference, Sean, between disagreeing with someone, and throwing out personal insults. Doesn't matter how large your network is. Nobody wants to work with someone who shows a lack of professionalism, especially in public forums.

Jasmine McAtee

Although, Laura, I really don't feel that the word "background" is in any way comparable to the word "negro". That aside, stay strong in your battle with cancer.

Nadine ( Cloete ) Maritz

That South Africa in general is totally different from what the world perceives

Alfred Nesser

Jesus returned,...

Alfred Nesser

Agreed, he didn't want us to be alone to suffer the worst time in human history alone.

Renee Maira

It will all be OK

Alfred Nesser

That's right, Renee!!! In the Bible, the phrase "End of the World", uses the Greek word, "AEION", which means, "end of the age". Yes, there will be catastrophies and loss of life, from wars and environmental conditions, etc., but this world has a lot more prophetic work to do!! ...And there has always been a remnant!! So, YES, Be Strong! And be very courageous!!! Go in and possess the land!!

Vote "NO" on the SAG Merger...Knowledge is power. I'm a former SAG Hollywood Board Member and here is info ALL members should know but their Union isn't telling them and this is the TIP of the iceberg: Your DUES Everyone elected will be eligible to receive monthly salaries which could include assistance with qualifying for health insurance.Broadcasters in the new union will still be allowed to work non-union (CNN, CNBC, ESPN, MSNBC, etc…) and make tens of thousands of dollars without owing any dues on that money. SAG-AFTRA: Exclusive Post-Merger Details By NIKKI FINKE | Monday January 30, 2012 @ 3:57pm PST Tags: SAG AFTRA Merger EXCLUSIVE: I have obtained new and confirmed details about the proposed union formed by the SAG-AFTRA Merger as approved by the National Boards Of Directors. To date, neither SAG nor AFTRA have released any referendum package details. The memberships will be asked to vote on the referendum package shortly. It is vital for each actor and performer to know how their unions will change because of the merger: 67 New Dues Structure: New Initiation Fee: $3,000 (Previously $1,600 at AFTRA, $2,230 at SAG) What you should know: AFTRA has refused to suspend its “open door policy” during the interim before merger passes or fails. Which means that from now until the effective date, anyone with $1,600 can walk up to the AFTRA cashier and join. Meaning they won’t have to pay the difference between $1,600 and post-merger $3,000. “This potential flood of newbies will absolutely kill the background community,” one of my sources says. New Base Dues: $198.00 (Previously $116 at SAG.) New Work Dues For Actors 1.575% with a cap of $500,000 Maximum work and base dues: $8,073 For Broadcasters: Tier 1: $0 – $100,000 – 1.575% Tier 2: $100,001-$250,000 – .274% ($250,000 cap) Maximum work and base dues: $2,184 What you should know: Between 60%-70% of SAG members will see their dues increase from $116 to $198 (or +$82). Roughly 30% or less of SAG members will see a decrease believed to be $45 purely due to the fact that they will no longer be paying two dues bills. Broadcasters are getting a huge break on the work dues percentage after $100,000 and a big break on the maximum work and base dues. Union vs Non-Union: Broadcasters in the new union will still be allowed to work non-union (CNN, CNBC, ESPN, MSNBC, etc…) and make tens of thousands of dollars without owing any dues on that money. Actors in the new union will still be prohibited from working non-union. New Entrance Structure: Previous members of either SAG or AFTRA or both prior to merger are automatically a member of the new SAG-AFTRA union. The three voucher system is one of the entrance requirements. If non-union actors can prove they have been trying to organize non-union work, they can become a member of the new SAG-AFTRA union. Unclear is how they will be able to prove that or how the union will be able to substantiate the proof. New Leadership, Old Staff: Convention will be the highest governing body. It will meet only every 2 years. There will be 80 Board members, including 10 national officers: President, Executive VP, Secretary Treasurer, and 7 more VPs. The President and the Secretary/Treasurer will be directly elected, as will the 60 board seats. The 8 remaining officers will be elected via convention. Executive Vice President is elected via convention. Everyone elected will be eligible to receive monthly salaries which could include assistance with qualifying for health insurance. What You Should Know: The President is now mostly a figurehead. The Executive Vice President is the most powerful position. Although actors will make up the overwhelming majority of the new union, that power will not be reflected on the Board or on committees. Hollywood will no longer hold the majority on the new union’s Board or any of its committees even though Hollywood represents over 60% of the membership and brings in over 65% of the new union’s revenue. All currently employed SAG and AFTRA staff keep their jobs after merger. Pension and Health: No study was done. Only a cursory review. There are no laws prohibiting the merging of the plans. Retirees are protected by federal law. Accrued pension credits cannot be eliminated. Which means that any member who has accrued pension credits prior to merger will have those credits after merger. What You Should Know: There is still a huge discrepancy between SAG’s and AFTRA’s health and retirement plans. No answers will be provided in time for the referendum package with regard to what will happen to the plans after the unions merge. Questions left hanging include whether the plans will be combined or frozen and what the new eligibility requirements and premiums will be. Also unanswered if what happens if SAG’s or AFTRA’s pension plans dip into the ‘yellow’ or ‘red’ zone which then reduces the guaranteed dollar value of what the retiree is expecting. Also still fuzzy is what happens to the overwhelming majority of members who have not earned enough pension credits to be considered ‘vested’ and still need to earn pension credits to reach that threshold. Bottom line, VOTE NO!!!! SAVE SAG!!! PLEASE pass this on to every SAG Member you know!!!

Right now I think Facebook is the way to go and here to. People with the network connections can get your message across. That depends on the message!

Alfred Nesser

Well, you know, Matt, kids want to know all kinds of questions: Daddy, why is the sky blue? What makes the grass so green? etc. He probably thinks you have something very constructive to say,... some impartation of worldly experience and knowledge from far off lands,...

Donald J. Watrous

Be who you are and don't let anyone change that.

Bob Gribbin

All the time we face new challenges. We can challenge who we are, by what we've become, vs. what we started out to to be. We can challenge antiquated notions of what should be, with what could be, if we can take the responsibility. I pray we can,...the future is here. Quote from my first movie, Homoclopian Act 1.

Bob Gribbin

Getting some "permissions" together for my new reel. Equity and the musicians union can be a challenge. Talk about antiquated notions. NOT really!! Love you guys!

Alfred Nesser

Interesting tip for you, Bob. The Fairness in Music Act of 1998 says that any music performed for the sake of charity is exempt from paying royalties. (This is why we helped more people form more non-profits in Massachusetts than anybody else!) ~Harmony Hill, protecting the rights of real people who have to work for a living!

Alfred Nesser

Oh, by the way, here's a quote from musician Carleton Raymond concerning Harmony Hill: "You saved my house!! Thanks for all the volunteer labor!! The Musician's Union up here closed down for lack of money. You guys are the only ones that stand up and really help musicians on the North Shore!" (Of course, this was written a few years back. Others have been spurred on by our example of unselfish devotion to help others in the music industry ever since then.)

speak your mind but always use diplomacy, be grateful for the adverse situations in your life, always appreciate the small aspects of life, be yourself no matter what, and be kind to animals as they have something to teach us...................

Do 3 things every day ... enjoy a fun, significant past memory, find a reason to laugh or smile even in the darkest moment, and remember that your power comes from within. :-)

Renee Maira

I would show the whole world how to Love and be loved <3

Lina Jones

I would ask people to stop telling others to not so socialize with other networks just because they are using a new network. Because when they started out they were using that network so now that they have decided to move on they talk negatively about the other. Don't they know that social networking is a numbers game I don't care how you try to dress it up. Those same people with find a new network within the next few months then that network will be the cats meow and they will be telling folks not to use that network they left. Socializing is a global thing get as much exposure as you like from as many networking sites you like as long as you can handle them. Try to show some ♥Loyalty Love to other people networks by unfollowing them just because you have not heard from them in a couple of weeks. Remember Rome was not built in a day! Keepin it Real :D

That would be a great comedic effect, Mark! Mistake after mistake, rapid time,... now it's no longer a page of paper, but rather a solid brick of white out! .... (Classic!!!!)....

LB McGill

ah I love it when an old thread becomes new again :)

Dan C. Corley

That you can be a Christian actor and still have a LOT of fun and a lot of roles, too,

Alfred Nesser

...is that roles,... or rolls,... sorry, couldn't resist,... (Yep, I'm Christian, too.).....

Alfred Nesser

@Loralie,... yep! Life from the dead!!.....

Renee Maira

I think it was me who woke the dead : /

Renee Maira

It would not be the first time and I am sure not the last...lol

Julia Elizabeth May

Forgiving others is easier than forgiving yourself!

Mark Ratering

Not if you have Jesus, he forgives you and lets you forgive yourself.

Alfred Nesser

Ah, yes, Renee, but I think that person was referring more to your kisses than to your words,... unless you are referring to a rather loud party,...

Alfred Nesser

Great comment, Mark. Many times, I could not forgive myself, until Jesus first forgave me. Same also for love. The scripture says, We never knew love, until he first loved us,... It makes a world of difference! Thanks for reminding me of the miraculousness of His forgiveness,...

Alfred Nesser

OH, Julia!! Here's an interesting reply to your comment. I was in the hospital with a kidney stone, in excruciating pain. And I knew from my spiritual correspondence chart that kidney stones in the natural are a manifestation judging others in the spiritual. So, I began forgiving everyone I could possibly think of, expecting for God to miraculously heal me. When I couldn't think of anyone else, God spoke to me and said, "While you're forgiving everyone else, don't forget to forgive yourself!" It hit me like a ton of bricks! So, stunned, I prayed and forgave myself. Instantly, the pain went away!! And then, suddenly, I had to go to the bathroom. I pee'd through some tissue paper and sure enough, the stone passed easily and without pain!! So, remember Mark's advice. Jesus can help you to forgive all those things that we ourselves could never do on our own. (Again, Mark, great tip!!!)

LB McGill

TMI Alfred! :p

Alfred Nesser

sorry,...

The same message I always offer: I do not believe in competition only in collaboration! To that end, how can I help you do better right now? And in turn how can you help others? BE WELL, BE CREATIVE, BE GREAT!

Romanus Wolter

Hire me today and make your film an even greater success!

LB McGill

:p @ Romanus

Alfred Nesser

@Timothy Tanner,... If you really want to collaborate, I have a platform for sharing music videos on TV. Submissions now being accepted for those who want to give their talent a little extra exposure in the Northeast USA, 20 communities, 14 million viewers. Videos must be up-beat, suitable for prime-time and family-friendly. I'm willing to share with other TV producers throughout the world to create a world-wide network for sharing music vids.

Alfred Nesser

@Mark E. Sackett,... OK, I have a mother who wants to get her children back,... let's collaborate. Also, I have a platform for music vids now accepting submissions, let's collaborate. Also, I have a restaurant available to set up a musical/comedy pilot with stage in the Beverly area suitable to do a sitcom pilot. Let's collaborate.

Julia Elizabeth May

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion :)

Alfred Nesser

@Romanus Wolter,... we don't have money, but we do have major contacts and opportunities. That's the only hiring we can do. Everyone who works for us is a volunteer involved with world causes. Talk is cheap. Prove yourself, or get off the soap box. I challenge you to unselfishly care for others!

LB McGill

I just spoke with Romanus today... and ummm he just has....

Julia Elizabeth May

Thoughts turn into reality so be sure to project nice thoughts :)

Romanus Wolter

Wow -thanks LB and Julia. Appreciated.

Mark Ratering

I live in Asia and everybody thinks rice thoughts here

Sherry Gore

Get to know Jesus, follow your passions, and love others as you want to be loved. And stop judging.

Mark Ratering

I give that post an A opppppps there i go again judging!!! LOL

Alfred Nesser

Just what I thought, lots of nice talk, enigmatic platitudes, but no action,... common. Well, let's try it again! I have a woman here who is seeking help. She discovered that her husband was involved with pornography. When she confronted him, instead of making a change in his life for the better, he divorced her and hired an attourney to make her look like trash. He now has custody of the two girls, and tried to prevent her from getting visitation. However when the visitation took place, the grandmother happened to notice bruises all over the girls legs, backsides and lower backs, and she made a public scene. As a result, the husband's lawyer bribed the judge and got visitation reduced to supervised visitation, along with a gag order against the mother and grandmother from making comments. In the meantime, day-care workers (where the children are kept by the husband while he works) have privately and confidentially contacted the mother to alert her of further abuse to the children, and that the state of New Hampshire refuses to act to protect the children. Also, articles are starting to appear in New Hampshire newspapers about the corruption in the court and child protective services division. OK, that's it. Any takers?? or are you just going to sit back in your plush easy chair and tell her how successful she can be? Who wants to get their hands dirty with hard work?

LB McGill

is this a plot for a movie?

Alfred Nesser

No, this is reality! real drama, real people. If someone would like to turn it into a movie, the facts are very rich with drama. The wife and mother thought that by being "nice" to her husband, he would repent. Instead he got worse, and nearly put her in the grave. She almost committed suicide a few weeks ago.

James Holzrichter

Where does this guy live? I just thought of a good ending for this one.... JK :)

LB McGill

what is it that you expect us to do Alfred? we're not social workers. Isn't this a little like asking a group of carpenters to compose a song?

Alfred Nesser

No, she has to go public. I tried to get her an interview on "An Overall View" but the executive producer is afraid of reprisals. So, I'm going to make a YouTube video to try and garner some support for her. Personally, from the Stage32 community, I need emotional and intellectual support and advise to best approach and resolve this issue. A national celebrity, who I am not allowed to name, told us that we have to go public, and we have to go public now. I don't mind risking my life, I just want to do it with wisdom. The grandmother is Della Rita Rossetti, daughter of the well-known millionaire of the 70's. She ran away from home, and found shelter among the Hell's Angels in California, who protected her from her father's abuse in a huge stand-down in California. She was known across America by the code name "Little Sister". But she and her daughter Angela, who is the mother of the two little girls in question, now live in the Beverly/Salem area. Angela is a Christian, and she has tended to side with her husband believing that her grace and mercy toward him would help soften his heart to repentance. But as time goes on, it appears that he is totally unrepentant and getting worse. She is fearful for the girls safety and has no where to turn. If you were in her shoes, what would you do??

He lives in New Hampshire. And I just found out today that he works at a mental health facility and has access to the patient's drugs. Everyone has been wondering where his unusual wealth is coming from, especially since his last house foreclosed and he just bought a new one. And he doesn't seem to earn enough money at work to cover all his expenses. No one is sure how he is coming up with this spare capital. The previous judge got removed from the case, for some unknown reason. But the husband's lawyer was overheard in the parking lot concerning some kind of bribe money, in a heated discussion with the husband who is represented by her. The new judge is a woman and is asking questions that the previous judge never asked. So there is some hope. The new judge is asking the kind of questions that a judge asks when she feels there may have been a previous "rush to judgment" on behalf of the previous judge. I think she is already sensing that there is something seriously wrong in this case. At least that's what we hope. A number of newspaper articles are starting to appear about corruption in the court system and child protective services, with regards to the porn industry in New Hampshire.

My uncle has started a foundation for whistle blowers protection, long story. I am named after him, I can forward you his facebook page. He has been through worse, and can help.

Alfred Nesser

Thanks! I tried to contact him, but being a performer/producer, facebook shuts me down with regularity whenever I announce a new project or performance. You'll have to get him to contact me. I'll try to get Della to join Stage32. She's a writer, and I'm sure she can talk best for herself. That is absolutely a great lead!! Thank you so much, James!!!

All you need is an alpha stirling motor hoked up to a generator, and ue some electricity from the generator to heat the hot side of the stirling motor and boom, endless electricity with NO fuel. Wish I could afford to make one it would be easy.

James Holzrichter

I would say ..' If we were all put in a position of having to have to literally survive on this planet( like so many of our people all over the world), would you be able to put aside your titles- prestige - low self opinion coming from a poor background or no education - difference of color- , and see each other as equal yet different as people etc... and all pull together as a team to get ourselves out of the mess? If so why do we have to wait for disasters to bring us to this point of attitude? Lets lift each other now and help keep each other out of any mess before any more messes arrive. I stand for inspiring each other right now and sharing all the good we can do for each other right now- Not when it is too late !'

Robyn J Keating

Wow Timothy !!! That is one hell of a road trip to your spirit !! Thanks for your great poetic insight !!

Mark Ratering

Nice thoughts Robin but as a writer my writting world would be boring if the world would be all peaches and cream. I know my edge makes me a son of a bitch and I know truth is the enemy of many.... but what I is... is what I is ...and sometimes.... it ain't pretty.

Y es .. Mark Rating - well I've been right down where it ain't pretty Mark ...and I don't care to share that side

Mark Ratering

Writers don't look for the ugly but when it happens we report it in our stories. You can't read about "ugly" you can only live it so that it rings true in your story conflict.

Robyn J Keating

Thanks for your advice ...

Wow - this is a very old post - way to keep it going, Luis! The message is still being passed on. My message is your message, and that is "giving a voice to everyone". It doesn't matter how smart you are, or how smart you think you are - if you let others tell you a story you might greatly benefit from it. So yes, mission accomplished.

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! If you truly believe in what you are doing and you give it your all...someday you WILL accomplish it. I was a stage actor for 22 years and landed my first film role at the age of 58.

Mark E. Sackett

Exactly what I preach daily and do in my events. Not as a career but as a hobby. http://www.TheArtofActiveNetworking.com My events are for fun and to help people get unstuck from a sales and need based connecting and instead to help each other do better in life, love, business and in their relationships. You can do anything you want, create anything you dream up and the power of doing it with others in a collaborative way is what life is all about, in and out of business! I'm a testament to that!

David O'Brien

Absolutely Laura! I'm weary of post apocalyptic heroes and torture porn, even romantic porn that tells you life will fall in your lap. We need movies about real human issues and more focus on ideas and writing them well; performances loaded with truth.

Stewart Moore

That a lot of what passes for good now will be seen as passé soon enough and many things you think of as performance failures were better than you think, so relax, be honest and do what you think is right. You'll always make mistakes just try and stop making the same ones.

Dear Luis R. Quintero:

I found this thread, and since it is been going this long, I wanted to keep it going.

Everywhere you look, there is a meaning waiting and ready to be found; Even in words like impossible and imperfection, "I'm Possible" and "I'm Perfection" are screaming out to be broken out to what they should be.

In life, always look for the meaning in anything.

God Bless.

Sincerely,

John German
