We are going to bring you stories and interviews from the cast and crew so you can get to know who we are as the season progresses. This week, we bring to you the one and only D-Stroy. D-stroy plays Ceasar on East Willyb this season.
If you came by the premiere party on March 19th, you may have witnessed or took part in the shenanigans of the John Demato Photo Booth. Want to check out what came out of that blinding ring flash? check out the photos in our album gallery here. Check out some below
There is no short-cutting to life. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time.” ― Asha Tyson
Well, it’s finally here and we couldn’t be more nervous, excited, thrilled, scared and anxious to deliver to you the first season of East WillyB. It’s been an incredible journey and one that we are enjoying and relishing each and every day. Running a crowd-funding campaign is no easy feat, and if you talk to anyone in the crowd-funding or fundraising industry, they’ll tell you that running one for $50,000 in 50 days is madness. But, with the love and support of our fans, families and friends, we did it. We did it because you believed in the power of what we are creating and you saw yourself in our project. You’ve experienced this gentrification in your neighborhood, your best friend reminded you of Ceci, or you just really love anything that Flaco Navaja creates. Whatever the reason was, you believed in us and we did it.
We are incredibly humbled by the outpouring of support and love that we have received from everyone because there were moments when we thought this wasn’t going to happen, and that we were going to fail. Launching a crowd funding campaign requires daily maintenance, tweeking, and optimism. It requires a calm mind and hopeful spirit that believes that anything is possible. It requires full support from our partners and loved ones in our moment of insanity. It is love.
Now, it’s here. And we couldn’t be more thankful to you for your support. This season is dedicated to you and to the American Latino who never gives up, finds possibilities everywhere and knows where they come from. We are uniquely connected to each other by our heritage, regardless of where we come from or where we live. This show does take place in Everywhere, USA because we have shared experiences that you can relate to.
Our last request to you is that you please share our show and our story with all your friends, families, networks, co-workers, compadres, comadres, and beyond. We are still on a journey and we hope you join us as we continue to spread the message of our show and our community. Help us show the networks that these stories are going to be told with or without your support because they are worth telling. Independent Latino shows can be successful because we’ll make the successful through the help of our communities.
Muchisimas gracias, for all of your support. Enjoy the show.
