Two Latina women looking to make a face for the Latino American comedy movement in the entertainment industry.

Hola!

You're here because you are someone who loves and believes in Dominizuelan. If you don't know what this is or who we are... believe us- we're doing big things.

It's been an incredible journey so far and we're just about to take this entire project to the next level.

 

So far, Wendy and Lori have written a two woman show called "People in the City". The show was a success garnering rave reviews from Chicago Tribune, The Chicago Reader, Time Out New York and NYCStageBuzz.com just to name a few. They have participated in the 2009 New York Fringe Festival, 2009 SketchFest, 2009 Chicago Improv Festival with their improv show "Dominizuelan" and are now invited to the 2010 Chicago Improv Festival andThe Nuyorican Poets Cafe in NYC. They have also been commisioned by Teatro Luna in Chicago to write their first full length play called "Multiple Americas" a title inspired by Junot Diaz a Pulitzer Prize winning author will go up in Spring of 2011.

In other words folks, we're working hard because we want to and love it.

We all know that Latinos are a growing niche in the mainstream media and we want a piece of the action. Network television and major media outlets are trying to cater to this ever growing market. They have hired Latino executives to head of these exciting departments.

In order to compete at a professional level we need the tools of professionals. Wendy and Lori under the umbrella of their new venture TallHispanic-ShortHispanic Productions need an LLC and a camera to get this business off the ground. We come to you for help. We need the license to run this business and a camera to film quality shorts, pilots and sketches for online use. This is a growing market and we need the best tools possible to compete.

The LLC will cost $500 with an additional $100 registration fee. We will get it through the City of Illinois. Lorena has an attorney who is helping her with the paper work and all we need is the  start up money to get the ball rolling.

In addition, we are also asking $2,000 for the HDR-FX7 Handycam® camcorder. Record videos and stills in stunning true high definition.With this camera we will be able to produce the high qualiy work we've become known for.

Our "Dream Big" fantasy is that we run our own production company some day. We know it's not easy and it requires a lot of work and we're ready to work on that level. This is the start of that dream. Tall Hispanic-Short Hispanic Productions.

Will you help us build the foundation to this dream?

Any donation no matter how small or large would help. We can't do this without you.
