From the battlefields to the state capital, Thomas Jones made a difference in the world. As a corpsman the battlefield of Vietnam, he did what necessary. He returned home a changed man, but he still chose to make a difference by helping other veterans deal with their battle related issues. He remained a positive motivating force for veterans until his death.

 For most of my life, people have been telling me not to try or to give up. They said my goals were impossible–that I couldn’t possibly make any of it happen. But, what they were really saying was that it was impossible for them. Since they couldn’t, I shouldn’t even try. It was too bad and so sad that they empowered their fears and self-doubts instead of finding their own inner courage ignore the negative message. If you believe you can’t, then you can’t; yet if you are certain you can, you can find or make a way to reach your goals. I changed the punctuation, which modified the message to “I’m possible.” What they didn’t understand is that every time they said I couldn’t, not only did I proved them wrong, but I did it so well that they looked foolish for doubting me.

I am a creative with a good business sense. As a storyteller, I tell tales about those who find the courage or are forced by circumstances beyond their control to face their deepest, darkest fears. As a producer, I use innovation, moxie, and the highest production standards to produce film and television projects. I base my projects on age, gender, and ethnic diversity both in front of and behind the cameras.

No matter what the venue, you first must start with an original concept and a well-crafted script. Adding the current visual/special effects or new talent doesn’t make a project new, which makes nearly all remakes and sequels reruns.

<p><a href=”https://vimeo.com/242131681″>Never Can Say Good-bye video one sheet</a> from <a href=”https://vimeo.com/user2064974″>Theresa Chaze</a> on <a href=”https://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a&gt;.</p>

The current trend of focusing on A-list talent and high price tent poles projects only serves to reduce the number of projects produced every year, which increases the financial risk to the investors and the production company. Just because it worked before doesn’t mean it will be successful again. Original projects initially carry more risk, but the truly innovative ones become the trendsetters and sent new bars for profitability. Casting talent in an inappropriate role, no matter what their marketing rating, will only serve to increase the budget and will hurt the project at the box office. However, casting a talented unknown in the right role will garner the audiences and create a future A-list talent. 

 
 
Money can’t fix a bad project. By substituting money for innovation is throwing good after bad and is the main ingredient in producing a disaster. Business 101 states that profitability comes when you give the public what they want at a cost-effective price. Business 102 states that if you treat your people well, they will treat you well, which means paying them a living wage and giving them respect. These are two elements many in the business community have forgotten, which is why the economy is still challenged.

Although I have not served, I use my talents to actively support military personnel and veterans. Recently, I was asked why. The answer is simple. I don’t have the temperament to serve. Nearly all of my time would have been spent in the stockade. Besides, I am only capable of shooting off my mouth. But at that, I’m a markswoman because I know how to use words as weapons.

Most of those who serve signed their name and dedicated their lives to serving and protecting their country and the world. However, killing others is an unfortunate necessity for both sides of conflicts. This is a major disconnect that causes most of the emotional issues for those served. In order to defend, they have to kill. But killing is contradictory to their need to protect. I met a gentleman, who served during WWII, who put it the best. Looking back on his life, he felt guilty over the good men he killed just because they belonged to the other side and for his buddies, he was unable to save. Now decades later, those memories tore him up inside, because he couldn’t stop thinking about them
 
Those who serve the nation are people, not disposable parts of the war machine and they are especially not political footballs that are to be used, abused, and then losed at the whims of politicians.
 
My job is to make sure civilians and especially politicians never forget that.

I am proud of my work. It will make you laugh, cry, and scare your socks off. But it will also inspire you to see the world in new ways. Join my team and become the difference you want to see in the world.

Cosmos Productions Studio will be digital film and television production facility that will produce low to medium budgeted film, television, and documentary projects as well as music videos, commercials and industrial films. Initially a one sound stage studio, the five year plan is to expanded it to a four sound stage facility and distribution hub for the domestic, foreign, and ancillary markets. Whereas the large established studios focus on producing big budget projects, Cosmos Productions Studio will go back to the concept of producing low to medium budgeted projects that spread the financial risk among many projects. One hundred fifty million can produce one tent pole film or produce and distribute 20 low to medium budget projects. It is the difference between one role of the dice and mitigating the risk by spreading it across 20. Within that financial pool of films some will fail, some will breakeven, but some will make a profit.

Cosmos Productions Studio proposes combine the best of the old school with the modern technologies to create a more financially stable business model. Based on the concept originally created by D. W. Griffith, Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford, and Douglas Fairbanks with United Artists, Cosmos Productions Studio intents to once again pull together the talent of producers, directors, actors, and crew, who want to take back their independence by having more financial and creative control of their careers. By working together and combining their skills, they will be able to produce and distribute projects that are based on diversity of gender, age and ethnic backgrounds. Women and minorities will gain equality in the industry by achieving strong leadership and decision making roles. It is this inclusive business model that will attract the creatives with good business sense.

First year projects:

Comparable to Ghost and The Others, Never Can Say Good-bye is a paranormal thriller with the tagline, “When love is forever, death is only the beginning.”

Sara Jane and Randolph met and fell in love as children. Several years older, Randolph went to work for her father, James. Determined to give Sara Jane the same standard of life, Randolph did the unthinkable. Claiming a large track of old growth forest for himself, instead of James, he became a pariah in the community. Only Sarah Jane and her mother stood by him. James actively worked against him by persuading the Michigan mills not to buy his logs. James’ revenged backfired when Randolph found alternative markets for his timber, which brought higher profits than anyone expected. Enraged. James forbid the marriage. Loving each other more than they feared him, they eloped. As their happiness grew, so did his hatred, which cascaded into series of events that caused Sara Jane’s death and the murder of his grandchild. Before Randolph could exact his revenge, he too was murdered

Their souls quickly returned to live in new bodies. Their conscious minds had been wiped clean, but the past remained festering in their subconscious. When the fates with a little help from the living bring them together all of their lives are thrown onto a dangerous collision course from which they can neither run or hide.

Never Can Say Good-bye tells the parallel storylines of the past and the present as the reincarnated souls are forced to decide between forgiveness and seeking the revenge they were denied in the past.

<p><a href=”https://vimeo.com/219790472″>Paranormal thriller with an innovate spin on the ghostly genre</a> from <a href=”https://vimeo.com/user2064974″>Theresa Chaze</a> on <a href=”https://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a&gt;.</p>

Horses and Heroes is an unscripted TV series, which combines the highly effective Peer Support Therapy with Equine Therapy. Unlike most in the genre, it will focus on healing and positive growth rather than endorsing bad behavior. Each season will bring together veterans from WWII to the current conflicts. They will be sharing their challenges and supporting each other as they find new solutions to their physical and emotional challenges. They know the talk, because they have walked the walk. They see the dodges and will be able to call each other on them. Sparks may fly. Tempers may flare, especially when they force each other to face their ghosts. But there will also be laughter and fun as they rebuild the comradery, which kept them safe and strong. The snarkiness and practical jokes between the branches doesn’t simply end. There is always room for just one more. When it airs, it will reach into the homes of the veterans, who need to hear that they are not alone, and give them information as well as permission they need to also heal. They will help each other find their way back to the world. Veterans can’t go back and make a brand new start; but they can start from now and make a brand new end.

With the tagline, “When a mother eats her own, no one is safe,” Eye of Ra compares to The Exorcist and Amityville Horror.

Katherine was born with the power to control the elements. Her whistle called the winds. Her tears refreshed the earth. She was able to see into the realms where fools and angels fear to tread. Her daughter, Sandra, was born with gifts that were complimentary—or they should have been. Sandra had the ability to nurture and heal. Her gifts gave her the ability to see and heal others’ pain. She could foresee their destinies and give them the courage to embrace their futures Yet, it was not enough. Sandra wanted more more direct control over the world and the realms beyond. When her daughters’ developed the gifts she craved, Sandra’s envy turned to hatred. When a voice from the dark void reached out and asked, “What would you do to have their power. Sandra replied, “Whatever it takes.”

Kidnapped as a child, Rikki is forced to defend her life from her envious mother, who is more than willing to kill to steal her spiritual gifts. When Rikki escapes, Sandra turns her attention onto others, who are more vulnerable. Can Rikki find the strength and courage to once again face her mother and stop her or will Sandra use Rikki’s guilt to weaken her to the point that she is unable save herself or anyone else?

A scripted television series, Operation Home Base combines the best of MASH, The Waltons, and NCIS to create a family of man drama about forgiveness and second chances.

A medic in the U.S Army, Martin Flying Crow returned from Vietnam a wounded soul, who was haunted by the ghosts and the guilt of his own actions. He quickly learned that there were more like him than the nation wanted to acknowledge. Unable to heal his own wounds, Flying Crow vowed to help other veterans find the peace he never expected to find for himself. Through a series of coincidences several others joined his crusade and expanded it. Through their combined efforts, Operation Home Bases legally becomes a non-profit organization that moves out of Martin’s garage and into an old shop. When Pat Bogley asks them to learn the truth of his son’s disappearance while on a routine patrol in Afghanistan, their inquires led them dangerously close to exposing a truth that many powerful people at home and abroad would do whatever it takes to keep hidden. When slander and threats do not deter Operation Home Base, Valhalla is created to offer unlimited financial and logistical support. Valhalla’s generous offer will either be the carrot to divert the investigation or the stick to destroy Operation Home Base from the inside out.

The second year slate would include the second seasons of both televisions series, plus two of the following features.

If you are feeling isolated and powerless, you are not alone. Many feel as you do.

During these challenging times when fear and self-doubt abound, hope fades. As it becomes a far off memory, it’s easy to get lost in the despair. It’s easy to give up.

Sometimes it seems simpler to go with the flow and hope for the best. That path may seem easier, but it rarely leads us where we need and want to go. In order to go forward, we must go back to find those pieces of ourselves that believed we were worthy of love and respect. It’s only by reclaiming those aspects of ourselves that we are able to understand the reasons behind the events in our lives. The understanding leads to healing, which empowers us to take back control over our own lives. God saw a Butterfly helps those, who seek to understand the challenges of their lives. It is never too late to be forgiven or to forgive.

God saw a Butterfly is available as an Amazon Kindle and as a PDF on the author’s website. Proceeds will be used to fund the TV series, Horses and Heroes. Buying the PDF gives more support toward the production costs.

During these challenging times when fear and self doubt abound, hope fades. As it becomes a far off memory, it’s easy to get lost in the despair. It’s easy to give up. Fighting and searching for the answers can be exhausting. Sometimes it just seems easier to just go with the flow and hope for the best. But at what cost? Easy frequently leads us down the exact opposite path of where we need and want to go. It is only when we challenge ourselves to reach beyond our comfortable to do we find what we desperately seek.

 

Things do happen for a reason. It’s just sometimes it’s more of a challenge to find the reasons. God saw a Butterfly is a parable of answers to the questions we are afraid to ask. In Shylon’s journey through her own fear, guilt, and anger, she becomes a signpost for others to follow on their quest to find the patterns of their lives. As she choose between love and hate, she gives other permission to face their own darkness.

Shylon awakens in her egg. Alone and frightened, she cries. Mother comes to her and calms her fears. Yet, the comfort remains short lived as her fears and guilt force her to doubt herself and those who love her. Each step of the way, she is drawn closer to the truth of her soul. If she finds the patterns of her past and reclaims her ability to love, she will become an Divine messenger, who helps others ascend. If she fails, her anger and guilt will lead her to the one place God cannot go.

God Saw a Butterfly is a transformational parable, which was very loosely inspired by the saying, where a caterpillar sees death, God sees a butterfly.
 
The proceeds from God Saw a Butterfly will be used to produce the TV series, Horses and Heroes. Combining Peer Support with Equine Therapy, Horses and Heroes will empower veterans to heal and reclaim their lives.

The Awakening

She awoke and squirmed a little. But only a little for there was very little room. She looked around. She saw no one and nothing. She was alone. Frightened, she began to cry.

“What is it my child?” A soft voice whispered. “Why do you cry?”

Even more frightened, she tried to look around, yet she could not move. She still saw no one. “Who are you?”

“I’ve been known by many names.” The voice replied. “Most call me Mother.”

“Why?”

Mother chuckled. “Because Little One, from me all life comes. To me all life returns to rest until it is once again time to be born to learn and grow. Just you are doing now.”

She pondered. “Who am I?”
