Kathleen Gyllenhaal Speaks About Her Latest Film In Utero

I had the privilege to speak with the very earthy and inspirational Kathleen Gyllenhaal.
An acclaimed writer – film maker – producer – mother – married to Stephen Gyllenhaal whom she collaborates on many projects with.
Her latest offering was directing a documentary film titled ‘In Utero’ which is a fascinating look at how the mother’s physical – mental – emotional and lifestyle environment may be effecting her unborn child.

At first I felt ‘oh wow – what else can we put on our shoulders as women!’

I was so relieved to discover we are all just doing the best that we can.
‘In Utero’ is a well thought through film with intriguing professional perspectives encouraging us to really think about it all.

Watch the trailer below at In Utero Film and find out how you can host a screening.

Do What You Love – Love What You Do

The eagle has landed after a three week journey to places we only ever dreamed to walk through England, Scotland and Amsterdam.
Two old souls with hearts wild and full of reckless abandon – letting the stars guide their path to the very place they are meant to be.
It seems the most important and yet the hardest part of documentary film making, is collecting the footage and allowing the story to unfold. In a society where all is moving so fast it is difficult at times to find the strength to walk as slowly as it often times takes to get this job done.
Be brave enough to allow passion to drive you – remain authentic to the stories collected onto each memory stick you shoot – don’t lose sight of your purpose.
Stay true to the course and you are on your way to creating something worth watching – with the potential to imprint on the hearts of those who take the time to  engage.
This year will see three films come to life as we take it to the limit of our dreams.

SELFLESS – Behind the Lens – Love Yourself More are Fresh Independence – they are documentary – music – life.

Do what you love – love what you do and never give up on what you believe in.

Stay tuned as our team of dedicated hearts brings you some amazing stories. We could not do it without each other.

Warm  regards,
Kim Laureen

Mondo Cozmo – Shine

New band – new tour bus – new music.

Things are shining bright for Josh Ostrander and his new project ‘Mondo Cozmo’ – named after his dog Cozmo. Ostrander says he wanted something that would look cool on a t shirt. Fast on the rise with a rave review from Rod Stewart and he’s been praised with an ‘in tune’ Bob Dylanish quality.

‘Shine’ a big single that hooks right into the heart sounds as good or better live than the recording which is true testament to the sincerity of Josh’s voice. Asked if he wanted to share the meaning behind the song he simply replied ‘Absolutely not. I’ll just play it for you.’ It’s perfect in a way, because the song takes on a meaning all it’s own for whoever listens.

“I am East Los Angeles but originally from Philly. I am not sure if I graduated high school. I can be soulful one moment and screaming Sixes and Sevens the next. I am the guy who orders 2 beers whenever I go into a bar and I pick up the phone whenever my mom calls. I want to do whatever I want. I want to connect with everyone. There is no demographic.”

Be sure to call into their telephone line and leave some love and encouragement.

Don McLean – History Plays On

An enlightening conversation with singer, songwriter Don McLean who’s living proof that three chords are all you need – and then the rest is up to you.

‘I heard Woody Guthrie play and I heard a verse and a chorus and I thought hey I think I can do that. I wrote everything off a guitar and as I got to be a better guitar player my songs grew.’

I really enjoyed speaking with Don who brings you back to where it all started for him – what he’s learned along the way and how much he still loves playing music today.

“Take control, get your life to the place you want it to be – in the height of my career people thought I had it made but Kenny Rogers was right when he said ‘in truth you’re not having any kind of life at all.'”
