My work and my message here on Emerging from Broken have been discovered by a movie producer and I have been invited to co-star in the next “Key” movie as a featured “Key Expert.” Writer/Producer Robin Jay, an award-winning filmmaker, has just signed me to be a featured expert in her newest film, “The Secrets of the Keys.”
The film will star icons of the personal development industry including Brian Tracy, Michael Beckwith, Dannion Brinkley (Author of “Saved by the Light,”) John Assaraf, Gloria Loring, (author, singer, songwriter, actress) and will feature special guest don Miguel Ruiz, author of “The Four Agreements.” I am beyond excited and extremely honored to have been invited to co-star with these amazing messengers in the field of self-help and personal development.
The ‘Secrets of the Keys’ is a prequel to Robin Jay’s first movie, “The Keeper of the Keys,” which stars Jack Canfield (co-creator of “Chicken Soup for the Soul” and author of “The Success Principles”), Marci Shimoff (author of “Happy for No Reason”), and Dr. John Gray (author of “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.”) “The Keeper of the Keys” was the first funny self-help film. It won the Las Vegas International Film FestivalAward for Best Independent Film and The INDIE Fest Award for Best Documentary.
The first thing that caught my eye on the Key Movies website (www.TheKeyMovies.com) was their tag line: “Taking the Hell out of Self-Help.” I am ALL for that! The second thing that caught my eye was that these are “real” movies, hybrids that incorporate a fictional story line and characters interacting with the film’s experts, as opposed to the more traditional “talking head” style of documentaries that typically identify the self-help genre of films. In “The Keeper of the Keys,” personal development experts interact with fictional characters by sharing deeply personal stories of transformation. As viewers, we find ourselves rooting for the main character, a man who is feeling victimized by his circumstances, and we hope he will become empowered by the experts’ inspirational messages.
Robin Jay initially reached out to me through the contact form on www.EmergingfromBroken.com after hearing from another ground-breaking expert who is going to appear in the film, Mel Carnegie . Mel is the author of the book “I’m Still Standing” and a fan of the work I have been doing. As you can imagine, when I first got that first email from Robin Jay introducing herself and asking me if I would be interested in being a key expert in her next movie, I thought someone was playing a joke. My heart skipped a little beat and I held my breath a bit while I checked out the links to The Key Movies website. When I realized her interest in me was legitimate, I was excited, scared, insecure, confident, skeptical, thrilled and overwhelmed, all at the same time! I put my fears through the process and realized none of them were too worrisome ~ they all come from the default mode of “not good enough” and I have already conquered that! After several emails back and forth, and a four hour phone call with writer/producer Robin Jay the following day, I made the decision to embrace this amazing and rare opportunity to carry my message to a global audience with all my enthusiasm and passion. I agreed to join the cast of “The Secrets of the Keys.” Producer Robin Jay said I have my finger on the pulse of what keeps most of us from moving forward and feels that my message will resonate with the film’s audience, since so many people have had to deal with some sort of abuse in their lives.”
The contracts are all signed sealed and delivered…. And I couldn’t be more thrilled. Now that I have had a chance to absorb it all, I think all that I am nervous about is what to wear to the VIP Premiere (I am not a big fan of shopping) and feeling amazing on the Red Carpet!! Just kidding…well maybe just a little bit kidding…I am actually both nervous and over the moon excited about the Premiere and walking the Red Carpet! I will have the opportunity to be photographed along side of all the other incredible stars in this groundbreaking film. The VIP Red Carpet Premiere will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada – “The Entertainment Capital of the World”! I hope you will consider coming to this amazing event when the time comes. Production is due to begin in the next month or two when Robin will begin filming some of the key movies stars in the Southern California area. As for me, I will be filmed in a studio in Las Vegas, Nevada, later this year. I will be posting updates here, on the Emerging from Broken facebook page (and on my personal FB page, which everyone is welcome to follow me on) and in email updates which you may sign up for on the right side bar when you download the Guide to Getting Unstuck. I am going to do some fun stuff to get my readers involved in the movie making process!
If you would like to experience the first funny self-help film ever, “The KEEPER of the KEYS,” it’s available now for streaming or download from The Key Movies Website.
I look forward to sharing more with you as we move forward into the production phase of “The SECRETS of the KEYS”!
Please share your thoughts with me!
There is freedom, wholeness, and living life to the fullest on the other side of broken!
