Where it all began…this little notebook I bought for, maybe, a dollar three years ago. I don’t know the exact date that I started writing this but you can tell it’s been a while based on the fading pencil lines on the first page.
In a perfect world I would be done with this musical. But alas there’s still more work to do and it’ll just take some time and that’s ok!
It is nice, thought, to look back. Even at embarrassing writings/moments like this fan letter I wrote to Mr. Reeves. I haven’t read it because I am sorta embarrassed but I thought you should all see it to know the passion I have for this project.
It shows how far I’ve come and gets me excited to see the further developments to come down the road. Maybe one day I’ll send this to Keanu but for now my dear fans get to enjoy this moment.
Don’t worry though I think we can find him September 1st at the DNA lounge in San Francisco performing inPoint Break Live! I have not yet been to see this magical reenactment of one of my favorite Keanu films Point Break. The greatest fact about Point Break Live is anyone can try out to be Keanu! So, If you’re ever jonesing to get your “whoa” on go see this play!!
Hope you’ve been having a good week and why not cape the end of the week with a little treat, a little thing I’ve been working on with my good friend Alexsandra Chelini to create a Keanu! Comic series. It’s been fun brainstorming ideas and Wednesday we went to Drink and Draw held every Wednesday at The New Parkway theater in Oakland.
Here’s what I created:
I’m working on a quick, rough drawing of a series called Everyday Keanu! Where it’s just him doing everyday, mundane things like celebrating Batman day a day late or eating a cupcake. I’m excited to get more going and don’t have too much now but check it out:
Also I’m super excited to see what Alex comes up with because she’s an amazingly talented artist! What we’ve been talking about is having a Keanu! Pin Up Series for the ladies (and gentleman). So, stay tuned for that!
Should be a crazy Keanu! ride and I hope you’ll enjoy the ride!
Last week I posted a poll asking the readers who would be best suited for the role of Keanu Reeves for the musical (that is, if Mr. Reeves wouldn’t like to fill the position himself). Thank you for everyone who voted and results are in (drum roll please)…
The role of Keanu Reeves in my Keanu! The Musical “Dream Cast” goes to…….
Even if this dream collaboration doesn’t happen I found his awesomely-amazing collaborative production company HitRecord!
I’m going to post some Keanu! The Musical excerpts for feedback and hopefully find other folks who want to contribute to this fun musical! Should be fun and interesting and can’t wait to check out and work with some great creatives! How cool!
