FEMININE TRANSITIONS Documentary Film

It’s official!  I am honored to announce I will be working on a documentary film for FEMININE TRANSITIONS. Originally, my idea was to create video footage of myself photographing the models in my book as well as commentary from them about their personal experiences about aging. Unfortunately, I was running a one woman show and taking video of myself photographing these beautiful ladies was not an option, as I had only one camera.  However, the completion of my book has provided me the time to finally start the documentary. It only makes sense to produce the film with the book (although it will be after it’s published).  I will be the videographer, photographer, video and photo editor. In other words, I’m wearing all the hats.

The release date has not been finalized as yet but I will start the documentary on FEMININE TRANSITIONS upon receiving sponsorship. The book however, I still plan to publish by winter 2012 (before Christmas).  Finances have been the hold up but trust that I’m working diligently hard to accomplish my goal and publish date.  Once I shoot the intro video, I will start my campaign fundraiser with Indiegogo. Although I will create an Indiegogo campaign, corporate sponsorship will be my focus as well.  Sponsorship information will also be posted on my website www.Alyscia.com. Do keep an eye out for that newsletter.  Also, if your interested in being apart of my documentary, please contact me.  Please include your age and the state and city you reside along with your contact information.

I thank you for your support along my journey and I look forward to sharing my experience with you along the way.  Always remember to feed your soul with whatever it is that creates happiness within you.

Peace & blessings,

Alyscia

Oprah’s Lifeclass Experience

On August 13, 2012 I was blessed with the opportunity to attend a taping of Oprah’s Lifeclass in Chicago.  I am a devoted Lifeclass student so of course I would take advantage of the opportunity to participate.  At the same time, for the past 2 years I have been putting it out into the Universe that Oprah will interview me about FEMININE TRANSITIONS. It’s also on my vision board.  I even had a set date on my vision board of August 26, 2012, which I recently realized is actually September 26, 2012. Whether it’s a month or two away, I am completely amazed by what has happened thus far!  Although I was not interviewed by Oprah on that day…I believe the actual day is coming soon. I can feel it in my spirit. So off to Chicago I go…

Furthermore, although I truly enjoy life class, I am a woman on a mission.  If I was to make my vision a reality, I had to make sure I could somehow get FEMININE TRANSITIONS into the hands of Oprah.  Therefore, I took the ONLY copy of my book with me to give to her.

While at Lifeclass, I sat in the audience thinking to myself, how I would give my book to Oprah, given the guidelines specifically states that gifts for Oprah are not permitted. Keeping in mind that I traveled to Chicago with very little funds (I stress very little), my daughter not feeling too well back home in MD and my mission on mind, there is no way I was leaving without giving Oprah my book.

The end of Lifeclass is near as Oprah and Iyanla stay for a while and speak to the audience.

I get up moving very quickly to the stage as I see someone up front ask her for a picture. As soon as I’m close she quickly walks off with security (it was honestly a blur at that moment).  My heart is pounding; first because I’m really nervous but I still can’t depart without leaving her with my book and; second I know I’m going against the guidelines of bringing her a gift. Now that Oprah is gone, I remembered her daughter’s, whom happen to be sitting to the left of where I’m standing at that very moment.  Granted I don’t have much time before security takes them back stage, I quickly but calmly introduced myself (to the one at the end of the row) showed her Feminine Transitions then opened it to reveal a flyer for The Girl God by Trista Hendren. I then asked if she would please give it to her Mom.  She looks down as I speak, opens her eyes a bit wide, and says, “Wow this is really nice. Don’t worry I will give it to her,” in a distinct South African accent.  Then a second after, the security guard takes Oprah’s girls (4 adopted daughters) off the set. YES, I’m thinking. I did it! Now I await the fruits of my labor. Is this all I need to connect?  Of course not, but it’s much closer than I was if I choose to stay at home.

I’ll keep you posted! In the meantime, find out more about FEMININE TRANSITIONS and pre-order your copy. It also makes a great gift!
