Television (Family) Producer Jenn Gotzon shares 20+ years of experience about craftsmanship to marketing secrets, she's learned and developed along the way as an actor, while keeping grounded on an ethical foundation from being raised by a Christian family. Gotzon takes the actor step-by-step through the process of how to create industry buzz like the pros, gaining position above the rest of the crowd, garnering attention that leads to work, and setting them up for success as an industry insider, while staying grounded in humility, servant-hood and unconditional love. Gotzon uses biblical ethics and prayer exercises to inspire actors to find peace and relaxation entering into the mind of the character in a safe way. Written by Susan Shearer

He gives Johnny a glimpse into his future - if he stays on the same path, his son will repeat his same mistakes.

Film (Documentary) Makeup Department What would you pay to hang onto the random stuff you've collected all throughout your life, but it just doesn't fit in your house? If you are like the many of the people we met while shooting this film, the price you'll pay to keep these tangible remnants of your memories is in excess of $40,000. When I moved to LA, I left a full storage unit behind in NH, and like most of the people in this film, I thought I go back for it. It's amazing how quickly soon becomes someday. It seems like there a storage complex on nearly every corner. What is everyone hanging on to? Why? And is it worth it? And speaking of complexes, every time I try to get rid of something, I hear myself saying "But it's my stuff." "I'll need it as soon as I get rid of it." "There's nothing wrong with it." "I might wear that. " "It was a gift," and so many more justifications. I needed to know if I alone in my attachment. Using footage collected from interviews shot all across the country, we explore the uniquely ... Written by Cami J. Kidder

Film (Short) Actress One of the things I was most struck by when moving to Los Angeles from rural Vermont was how many, very large, newly constructed buildings there are in LA for the express purpose of storing things that we value, but for some reason don't keep in our homes. Even though I am a bi-coastal storer myself, I was set to wonder why is there a storage complex on every corner. What is everyone hanging on to? Is this just an American thing? Who are the people powering this industry? And is it worth it? My Dad owns a small set of units. And from those 26, he grosses about $3000 monthly in passive income. So, if he's realizing this on a small scale, what's going on with these very large companies that can have 1500 units in a single building? The structures in the cities are truly complexes. They seem to have all the comforts of home - electricity, piped-in music, air conditioning, and at about $1.60 per square foot, it's not all that surprising that people have taken to living in them.
