Don't get me wrong, fundraisers have held prior to filming, but not just a party for actors who auditioned for roles and their friends and family to get together with the screenwriter and producers. Has anyone else heard of this before? If so, I'd love to know about it.
Also,Gypsy Elise and the Royal Blues Band will also be playing at the New Orleans Party at C Beavers, 2507 N. Woodlawn Ave, Metairie, LA 70001. The party begins at 7:00 PM until 2:00 AM (Central).

We did a test run tonight before the blog came out to try and avoid any problems. The test group consisted of:
- Stephen Beal (Los Angeles Party Planner)
- Nick Brady
- Timothy Wyant
- Jennifer Dawson
- Jack Curenton (Los Angeles Party Planner)
- Ivan Hoey Jr.
- Gypsy Elise
- Jamie Alyson
- Johnny Rock (New Orleans Party Planner)
- Dr. Mel
The biggest problem we discovered is that you have to have the latest version of Skype in order to connect with us. We also learned, that in order to be in the group chat, at least one member has to have the premium version of Skype. Several of us do so we are ready. We also learned that the group chat doesn't work very well if you use your IPHONE or IPAD. You will be able to hear, but may not be able to see the party.
WATCH THE NEW ORLEANS PARTY LIVE ON THE INTERNET
If Skype isn't your thing or you don't have a Skype account you will be able to see the New Orleans party live. Anyone in the world will be able to watch the KSK party live tomorrow night by clicking on the following KSK PARTY LINK ICON:
How are we able to do this? To the rescue is Gypsey Elise, lead singer for Gypsy Elise and the Blue Royal Band. They will be using their group's connection to broadcast the New Orleans party live that they normally use to broadcast their concerts. That way, you will be able to join in on the fun, but you won't be able to speak with us. But, no worries. I'll be on Twitter and post updates as well as posting things on the Facebook site as it happens. A BIG THANK YOU TO GYPSY ELISE.
Lots of fun in store for tomorrow night.
I personally plan on taking a late afternoon nap, so I will be up and ready to party New Orleans style ALL NIGHT LONG.We plan on hooking into the Los Angeles Party, which will be held at 94th Aero Squadron Restaurant Van Nuys, 16320 Raymer ST., Van Nuys, CA 91406. The party time for CA is from 7:30 until 11:30 PM .
SO, WE'LL SEE YOU OR YOU'LL SEE US AT THE KSK PARTY IN NEW ORLEANS.

Let me be your stalker!
We really need your help NOW! Its only a few weeks till we start shooting. Its a film I'm dedicating to my brother who struggles with bipolar disorder. We are wanting to bring awareness to mental illness with our film to help all of the families who are going thru this with a family member.... Our feature Shadow of the Monarch needs a minimum of $10,000 to get the filming we need done, including the use of a red camera to up the production quality. That means that if everyone on this list gave $10 at Indie go go we would make our total tomorrow. That's the Buck perk at Indie go go. here's the direct link to the $10 perk to make it easy. https://www.indiegogo.com/
projects/134363/pledges/ new?perk_amt=10&perk_id=437733 . I promise you it will be the best $10 you ever spent.

FREE ACTING SEMINAR IN NEW ORLEANS
I can not stress enough the importance of an actor honing their craft. There is nothing like taking acting classes or an acting seminar especially if it is free. New Orleans area actors have their opportunity to attend a free acting seminar by veteran actor and acting instructor Jerry Katz. I know Jerry personally, as he was one of the cast members in a film by Steve Esteb, Dirty Politics, in which I was the 1st AD. Jerry is a very skilled actor and I have attended several of his classes, not as a participant, but as a producer observer searching for new talent in New Orleans. Actors in the New Orleans area should consider taking full advantage of this acting seminar as well as other acting classes in your area that are free. Nothing can be better than to get something of value for free. Thanks Jerry for supporting our Louisiana Actor base and providing this free workshop. To make your reservation for the class or for additional information, contact Courtney Evans at 504-975-0877.
