Living an inspired life

If you’re anything like me, sometimes you need a real kick in the ass to get going and recognize the power you hold and the talent you possess.  Today, I’m inspired.  I’ve been reading a blog lately that really lights a fire under me to get up off my keister and get sh** done!  Just Add Cape: adventures in becoming a real life superhero (see blog roll on right), a blog by L.A.-based writer-director-producer-actress Kai Soremekun, is all about finding inspiration, becoming empowered and finding your voice.  Her web series CHICK is all about that, too.  It’s definitely a package deal you get with the blog and show, a full-on brand that focuses on empowerment.  Wow, we need that! (Do we ever! I hope you’ll say.)

I love Kai’s positive take on life, fears and dreams, not only on this blog, but also in her web series (about a woman who becomes a superhero).  Just Add Cape is much more than just a support or supplement to her series, it’s an incredibly nurturing space where people are called upon to be their best selves — superheroes, in fact!  THAT, yes, that, is something the world needs more than ever.  Check out Just Add Cape, and stay tuned for the second season of CHICK

Watch the video interview, “Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway,” with Kai Soremekun done for Her Film in 2010.

Feel the Fear & Do It Anyway! A video interview with Kai Soremekun, creator of the web series CHICK

Kai Soremekun is the creator-writer-director and star of the web series CHICK about a woman who wants to be a superhero.  She’s based in Hollywood, California and has recently finished the first season of her show — an ambitious 20 episodes! The second season is currently in development.

I met Kai in May 2010 at a seminar on internet marketing for filmmakers and then we met up again during my trip in August to Los Angeles. ( The all-day seminar was well worth it!  Note the section in the interview in which Kai talks about the mastermind group she’s just finished, all about the artist + entrepreneur model of filmmaking.)  She’s one of the most inspiring and positive people I’ve met, despite the fact we’ve only spent a few hours together!  CHICK is all over the web, so check out the links below the video to learn more.

Sincere thanks go out to Kai Soremekun for doing this interview!  Her patience during my camera troubles was admirable.  Toward the end of the interview, we were shut down by bookstore security for “customer filming,” so we relocated down the street to a hotel courtyard.  Much better atmosphere…
