Sometimes things don’t belong where you put them. Sometimes they outgrow their space. Sometimes you have to make changes. When I launched my creative business mentoring and consulting business I just added it to the Kitty Fantastic website without thinking how that would work. It didn’t belong there and it didn’t make sense. After some thinking, planning and brainstorming, I (re)launched my creative business mentoring and consulting business as Pink Spark Creative. It has it’s own website, Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram and has a place on Pinterest too. I’m still offering the same services (and more!) as I was before, but now they have a real home where they can grow.
So, feel free to wander over to the website and check it out. Sign up for the mailing list to get blog posts, updates on workshops and all sorts of awesomeness in your inbox every month. Oh, and be sure to follow us on Twitter, give us some Facebook love and check out our snaps on Instagram. Let us know you’ve followed us and how we can help! We look forward to working with you!

Team Kitty Fantastic won the Audience Award for “A Matter of Pride” at the 2014 Knoxville 24 Hour Film Festival.
Team Kitty Fantastic is back at it again this year with another awesome entry into the Knoxville 24 Hour Film Festival. This year we added some new members to Team Kitty Fantastic and changed things up a bit. The most obvious change was having David Harland Rousseau come aboard as our writer and director. David knows a thing or two about writing. He co-authored “Storyboarding Essentials: How to Translate Your Story to the Screen for Film, TV, and Other Media,” published by Watson-Guptill/Random House. His writing skills and knowledge of filmmaking helped Team Kitty Fantastic grow exponentially! We still had a lot of fun even though we took this year’s entry a little more seriously. Oh, it’s still a funny film, but our cinematography and editing are greatly improved and we gained a better understanding of how many pages of script it takes for a four minute film. The answer is four pages, in case you are wondering.
Many of this year’s team members have been with us since the beginning and each year their skills and assistance grow. Heather Pagles, for example, has become the Queen of Script Supervision and just this past weekend managed to keep a nine hour short film shoot on track. This was no easy feat since our shoot went into the wee hours of the morning.
Each year our team grows in both skills and talent. We were thrilled to have won the Audience Award this year since it is an award based on the votes of the audience many of whom are our peers. We’re going to be a strong team again in 2015 and look forward to winning more awards. Or at the very least creating a film that makes us proud, just like ‘A Matter of Pride’.
If you click the link below and watch the film, feel free to drop a comment or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in being a part of the team or would like to work with us on a film project.
