Our local paper, The Beach Reporter, has been very supportive of our project. This is a letter I wrote to the editors which was printed recently.
We had some great local awareness and police enforcement on April 20, the unofficial stoners’ holiday. Thank you to Redondo Beach Police, Hermosa Beach Police and Hermosa Beach City Council for their assistance in making this happen. This is me presenting the JAMA 2018 study which shows a 12% rise in traffic fatalities on that day.
The voice of: “Axel/Lea” from Kingdom Hearts Series, “Raiden” from Metal Gear Series, “Iruka Sensai” from Naruto! Quinton Flynn, brings his voice over talents to A NIGHT IN JAIL, breathing life into all of the characters. His performance takes alternating hair turns of funny and frightening. Quinton is an old friend of mine from many moons ago when I was an actress. We teamed up together to produce this audio version. The recording was engineered by Julian Giraldo and recorded at Waterfront Sound. Click HERE to listen to a short sample.
One of our local high schools, REDONDO UNION, did this terrific interview with me about our staged reading of A Night In Jail (the interview starts 5.5 minutes into the video). Getting this book in the hands of teenagers has been a major goal of ours so this is an important step in that direction. RUTV did a great job: behind the scenes and in front of the camera, they were pros through and through! Thank you to Ona Schafer, Rowan Smillie, Samuel Alpert, Bryson Smith, Mr. Sheehey and Jens Brandt.
