Thank You To "Presenting at 17"

Greetings All!
I'd like to thank Elise Gardella & Presenting at 17 for hosting and curating last nights event "Let Me In Your World". I loved the way it all came together. Thank you to all that were in attendance & for giving me the opportunity to feature these films. Your feedback & support was very helpful. More than I expected. I hope I can keep in touch with you all.
Much gratitude to the artists that were in the films - Jennifer Bonaparte (Jennifer Luv), John Zhao, Keith Jossou, Michael James & Cornelius Byrd. A big thanks to the lovely Diana Cherian for sharing her music with us.
Until we meet again my friends - Stay Blessed!

PRESENTING AT 17 presents
An evening of short films & music from artist Boo Boo Cousins. 4 documentaries & short stories featuring five different artists ranging in subjects of collaboration, writing, poetry, film, creativity & more. Featured artists include Jennifer Luv, John Zhao, Keith Jossou, Cornelius Byrd & Mike James. In addition Boo Boo Cousins performs a selection of soul & popular songs - original & covers. Musical guest - Diana Cherian.
Artist Statement: Sometimes people let me into their world . . . and good things result from it. I'm the fella with the guitar, or mic or camera. These moving pictures combined with music tell a story of these individuals one by one. Every decade goes through a revolution of sorts. Right now we're partly living through an internet, digital camera & automated revolution. The further we move away from each other the more we create our own little worlds. Now we experience different types of realities through strangers across the world we'll never likely to meet. These films & artists you will see represent people trying to bring people together. Bring them in - so to speak.
Let me into your world on this evening & let's see what takes place.
