I am happy to announce that Natural Gifts is crowdfunding a 0% interest loan on Kiva. Kiva is the first and largest micro-lending service in the world that has distributed $709 million over 10 years, in 85 different countries, among 1.5 million small businesses.
I am currently in a private fundraising period, during which I have 15 days to get at least 67 lenders in order to make it on the public platform where anyone on Kiva can lend to me. The funds from this loan will go towards getting new equipment, renting an incubator and buying inventory.
I would like to ask you to lend as little as $25 (which you will get back!) so that I can progress to the public fundraising period. If you would like to support me, please follow this link to my profile page (https://www.kiva.org/lend/1350082). This is the only way your loan will be tracked as coming through me. Thanks for your support, I am honestly so grateful!
I sincerely appreciate your support!
Hey Everyone, Im Co-Hosting a speed dating event with Urban Poetry Movement, tomorrow night! Check out the video below for details.
2 days before my 26th birthday. Can't believe it's finally here... Not my birthday but everything I've been talking about these last few years. The books, the movies, the blog. Stay tuned.
its been a crazy week. First I got stuck an elevator
then we released our captain America short
then I ended up in the hospital.
but it's alright. I may have to push the release schedule back a month but don't worry, it's still going down!!
I was going to do this on video but I decided the video update has to be unlike the previous video updates.
I've been busy and procrastinating at the same time but I notice thousands of views from this site, my original youtube page and social media accounts which means there's enough of ya'll checking for new additions to the site and its unfair of me not to give you what you're looking for.
Im currently in post production of several productions. There's the flip the hood documentary Im doing with Top Management Inc.
I have 25 episodes of Natural Gifts
7 episodes of Ask Carlemile
6 episodes of realty of filmmaking
6 Short films
1 According to New York
1 Drunk Selfies
6 Episodes of Perks that Twerk (a fashion show for men I just started)
and 5 unreleased vlogs
Not including my new Gamer series, woman crush Wednesdays, Carlemile Chronicles, new music videos, sketch comedy, podcast, radio drama and short films.
There's also a film that was originally called "The Cost of love", "HollyHood Enterprise" and "Root of all Evil" which Im now re-editing as a digital series thats connected to social media to give it a real interactive feel as you binge watch (if you decide to). Working title of the series is "South Side Stories" With the release of the series, there will be a companion album and ebook/short story collection. One of the stories is the first season of the series and the other 9 stories maybe the following seasons or adapted into another medium. Im 346 pages/85,504 words into the book. I might also break the stories apart and release them separately.
Some of ya'll want to know whats going on with our Fruit Infused and Alkaline water. As of now we're dealing with the branding, manufacturing and legal stuff. As soon as we have product available, I promise to let you know.
Im working on editing all these videos (over 50) all before december so we can have December videos shot, ready and scheduled for release so I can begin focusing on Januarys videos or quickly do a video spur the moment and not disrupt the flow.
I apologize for the wait. With being a Real estate investor/agent "executive assistant" (I know, I know.. but I didn't coin the term) and starting up a beverage company from scratch, its hard to manage the balance of producing entertainment, dealing with family and friends and paying bills but that's no excuse since I have hours of materials in hard drives and duffel bags filled with Mini DV tapes (remember those?)
Im dropping a trailer for our captain America short this thanksgiving so look out for that.
As well as I have a new youtube Channel. Thanks for tuning it and I promise we ending this year in a bang!
Much Love, God Bless
Im a producer, writer, director, editor, actor, entrepreneur and entertainer who likes to express himself in more than one way!
