Painting created for the CMYIC

Titled: " BORN WITH IT " Created On Sunday July.19.09 for a documentary with my best bud Sylvia Ortiz. Awesome Artist ! I was honored by them to be apart of an independent film, collectively with other artist and with my friend Sylvia, for a film that I will show you within weeks from now. I do hope you like them. Below are information about the production and its crew.

The Organization is called: CMIYC Productions:
Catch Me If You Can Productions is an independent film company that focuses on the establishment of up and coming artists in the field of film. We were founded in September, 2008 and throughout the last few months have worked on making our dream of creating a New Housing Complex for artists a realization. We desire to create a space for talented artists struggling to express their art and survived within a city that makes it extremely difficult.CMIYC Website: Joshua Martinez Creative Director

The Struggle Of The New York Artist:
The Struggle of the New York Artist focuses on the documentation of the individual struggles and obstacles of New York artists as they strive to obtain their dreams and enrich their art. It illustrates the trials and tribulations of artists and their interconnected identities. The film is comprised of visual and digital artists, dancers, actors, actresses, singers, rappers, and other artists whose expression is enriched by their struggle. We do not intend to represent all the struggles of the artist community in New York but give a representation of what some of us must undergo in the hopes of enlightening the masses and forging a connection among each other.

Other Things about CMIYC:
CMIYC Productions is in the process of developing a street team for young talented youth interested in film or artistic expression as a whole, but are in need of funding to make it possible. CMIYC Street Team will focus on the promotion of the company as well as challenging youth to think "outside" of the box by providing them with innovative ways of expressing themselves by offering them courses on digital design, acting, film, and other forms of artistic expression. The Street Team will teach youth about the importance of public speaking and how to promote themselves as well as a project.

Also, we do head shots for up and coming artists needing to find affordable ways to promote themselves (head shots range from $70.00 - $150.00 a shoot). We also offer acting classes for youth interested in pursuing a career in acting.
