Formby, Dana,

The press release for my play Corazon de Manzana has gone out.

I'm so excited about this. Each season, the Department of Cultural Affairs accepts proposals from the city’s developing theater companies who wish to bring their innovative productions to our downtown performance spaces. Then they give their awesome black box space for a free month run. Here is the link to our Info.

As you know, we are doing a fundraiser called Kickstarter. We have a total of 30 days to raise $10,000. If we do not reach the mark we get nothing.

To give you an update, we are at $8,032 and have until April 9 to finish fundraising. If you have five or more dollars to donate, it would be greatly appreciated!

Here is the link to donate:

The University of Wyoming has shown so much support so far!

As you know funding for the Arts has become increasingly scarce, and being a new company, we are ineligible for most grants. We hope through this grassroots funding opportunity that we will make season 2 a strong force in Chicago Store front theatre.

Sweeney, K. Harrison,

Ahoy-hoy, y'all! After graduating with honors in '01, you can now see me in several one-on-one scenes with Eddie Murphy in "A Thousand Words" being released in theaters this March of 2011!

I also provided the motion capture and voiceover for several characters in last year's number one selling video game worldwide, "Red Dead Redemption" including fan favorite "Mr. Irish."

Aside from having four currently-running national Foster's Beer commercials (with another coming out this year...) I'm in a "Wii Party" commercial, (Jason Finazzo & Friends) a Kaiser Permanente commercial, ("rain") and in several films hitting festivals this season including "On the Outside," "Another Life," "The Citation," "Cupid," and next year's "Rock 'N Rye," "The Girl From Hondo," and "Burning Man."

I am now in pre-production for the first two films from my production company Big Horn Samurai Sinema to shoot in early Indian Summer of 2012 entirely on location in Laramie ("Undead Valentine") as well as in mid fall of 2012 in NYC. ("Real Estates")

A nepotist to a fault when it comes to casting Wyomingites ahead of everybody else, I'm also using my stand-up comedy tour ("Last Comics Squatting") along the Rockies, Southwest, and Northwest to conduct workshops and sniff out the local talents as we prep for "Undead Valentine."

Hope to see you when I pass through! Let 'er buck!!!
