PSA #2: “Sexual Consent is Sexy” [Directed by Jules Dameron]

I loved directing this particular PSA, because DeafHope cast the perfect people for this– Tracy & David Seto. They are not actors, but they understood the importance of sharing this message with the world. It was hard for me to film them in their own bed, because, you just simply have a natural understanding of allowing people to be private with their lives. But Tracy & David were perfectly fine with it. I enjoyed working with them thoroughly. This is an important message because — many people underestimate the importance of communication and physical respect with others in long-term relationships. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been in any sort of relationship, that does not mean you are entitled to physical rights of another person. ————- Directed & Edited by

Jules will be on LA Talk Radio! [Thurs, Jan 3rd, 5 p.m. PST]

Extremely exciting. Thanks to Sheena Metal, I’ll be on LA Talk Radio [http://www.latalkradio.com] for an hour with Sheena Metal, talking about film projects I’m involved with. I’ll be having a voice interpreter speak for me. And there’s more. For my deaf and hard of hearing followers they’ll have access to live captioning online of the radio show at this link: http://stenoknight.com/nypl, courtesy of Mirabai Knight. You can look up her work on http://www.stenoknight.com. She’s the same one that did the Keith Wann Show (on internet radio). They’ll also have access to a chat room, and have things to say during the show. Nifty, huh? Be sure to TUNE in today at 5 p.m. PST! I’d love your support in the chat room for Sheena Metal and me. Follow my Twitter/Facebook/Instagram. I may be able to grab a few snapshots of the Sheena Metal Experience. 😉

New Feature Film by Paul Kampf/PAI Training

I’ve gotten the honor of working with Paul Kampf, the producer/writer/jack of all trades brains behind the project and PAI Training team. Check out their website here: http://paitraining.com Thanks to Lei Wang, Photographer– I’m able to show everyone how it went on the day I joined them on set. They actually filmed a feature film in three days. I’m not usually keen on short periods of time for heavy shooting, but the way this film was set up, I say, kudos to Paul Kampf, for making sure everyone was taken care of and getting the work they need. I’ve already uploaded most of the photos on my Facebook page– but here’s the link of the photo album. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.569278576421174.146516.131837496831953&type=1 Working with Heather Cope & Julie Kathleen (the leading actresses of the scene I worked on) was a genuine treat. The experience was extraordinary for me. All my life, I had always aspired to be a film director, just like many aspiring talents in Los Angeles. And thanks to the help of Martha Villar Yasuda (my interpreter coordinator) and the open-minded nature of this project (that includes Paul Kampf and the actresses), I was able to achieve just that, a typical film director at work on set. And no one overspent on anything. Pretty nifty, huh?
