How did you begin the planning process of the Heart Television Show?
Well, I would like to first like to say thank you for hosting my cast on your blog. I had the idea for several years. However, I was missing the pieces to put the puzzle together. My producer, Nikkea Smithers, and I, were attending a literary conference organized by BRAB. We put our heads together to outline the beginning stages of planning. Once we returned to our home city, Richmond, VA, we started implementing our strategies.
How did you fund the project?
I utilized my funds from book sales, credit cards, and the Kickstarter Program. I have awesome fans and friends who supported my vision!
Describe the Schedule.
We filmed for 7 weekends. Many said that it could not be done. However, I want to be inspiration to others. Don’t let others stop your vision. I have great friends,family, cast, and crew that made sure that all things went smoothly. I was blessed to have friends and family members let me use their houses, cars, etc. to assist with filming. People volunteered their time and services to get things done!
Where can we find episodes of the show?
Currently, the show is airing on CW Richmond. The first episode is available on Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_gQ3P6nTZA. Starting in March, you will be able to purchase the entire series on DVDS.
