Lights Camera Read – Community


The mission of Lights Camera Read, established in 2009, is to help artists of all kinds (actors, writers, filmmakers, musicians and so forth) go from being “Starving Artists” to “Artist Entrepreneurs” via creative projects (“Thrillumentary”), online education (“Art Gush”) and award shows (“Platinum Pias”). Lights Camera Read also is a proponent of the Artist Introvert Revolution (A.I.R.) which will soon be releasing the book “Web Marketing for Introvert Artists.” Plus, through an alliance of blogs, Lights Camera Read reaches over 15,000 artists monthly. cont’d

Donations/sponsorships for Lights Camera Read are tax deductible because of fiscal sponsorship by Fractured Atlas, a Manhattan based 501(c) nonprofit.

And don’t forget, if you are a member of our newsletter you are eligible to attend the Platinum Pias.

Platinum PIAs:
Recognizing the arts and science of building communication.

Lights Camera Read:
Create and Be Published.

Plus, when someone either creates content or is the subject of a content creator, he or she becomes eligible for nomination for the Platinum PIAs – the community and education awards show of the arts.

Sometimes the notion is to defer job creation to the established entrepreneurs without realizing our own inner and outer capabilities.

LCR believes that claiming the mindset of being an opportunity creator is what is needed for success in our current economy and explores this through their annual awards show, weekly vlogs, documentaries, university lectures, events, movies and online magazine network.

Create Your Own Opportunities




“If literate Western man were really interested in
preserving the most creative aspects of his civilization,
he would not cower in his ivory tower bemoaning change
but would plunge himself into the vortex of electric
technology and, by understanding it, dictate his new
environment – turn the ivory tower into the control tower.”

The message is one of empowerment, that rather than becoming fixated on the often frustrating undertaking of finding a job or keeping your current one, you can often get better results by educating yourself about entrepreneurism as a tool for vocation.

This approach makes you more proactive so that you can actually create opportunities instead of having to wait around for them.

The Lights Camera Read volunteer group of artists and entrepreneurs was formed in 2009 which lead to the first Platinum PIAs Awards in 2010 without sponsorship.

And now with their Platinum PIAs partners including local businesses, the awards program is growing at a rapid rate.
