The Epoch Times Interviewed Me

Had the honor and privilege to take my mom and me to see the beautiful performance of Shen Yun this year. We enjoyed it! Check out this ‘editor’s picks’  interview in The Epoch Times featuring my experience.  The Epoch Times Interviews Tony Suriano Whether you’re a filmmaker, artist, or just a human that wants to get inspired by organized eye candy, Shen Yun was worth it. Every single thing or event can make an imprint on our lives. I’m sure this experience will carry over into my next project for sure.

TICKET BUYING HACK: These tickets were pricey ($100+/per seat closer to back!), so I bought them ahead of time. Sure it saved a little money but the real hack was the research I did on theater size. Nearly all the theaters in Los Angeles County and surrounding areas have huge 3000 plus seating.  All but one. Palm Dessert theater has 1000 seats. This smaller venue allowed me to get twice as close to the performance for the same price. Yeah, I felt great about that. And yeah, I made my mom’s FB cover photo. Tony 1, Sisters 0.

Mom and me!

In the Film Industry and on a website budget? WIX is a fun and easy way to build a website yourself.

Hey everybody, it’s Dr. Nick (OG Simpsons anybody?). Actually Tony here. I wanted to remind people out there how important having a website is these days. Below is info on what I think is the best website builder for creatives who are not programmers.

It not only shows credibility, it is also a great place to reflect your work and constantly add to it, which I believe in turn keeps the spirits up. AND YOU NEED THEM SPIRITS UP IF YOU WORK IN THE INDUSTRY! Now if you’re a crazy programmer or have a lot of patience for website building on Word Press, be my guest, BUT if you’re like me and just love to design and skip all the tech crazy stuff you’ll love WIX website builder.

This podcast site is word press (because apparently good for podcasts ahh!) and if you’re seeing it on March 2018 you can understand I did not have the patience and will have to hire someone to make it better. But if you check out my http://www.hotfilmset.com website, you will find it pretty damn good (I build it my self on Wix). Literally drag and drop to your liking with much to customize. Here’s a link to get started on Wix. You will not have to spend money on hiring someone to build it for you I promise. It’s a great way to save money, market yourself, and be creative at the same time. I have the premium plan and it offers everything I need. http://wixstats.com/?a=19801&c=380&s1= Let me know how it went and post your new website in the comments! Happy building.
