EDIT- 8/24/2015: Zal Batmanglij, the creator of “The OA” just re-CONFIRMED with the casting agency that lunarcasting@gmail.com is SAFE to submit. I’ve added screencaps to the tweets (source here and here.) The casting agency uses a gmail due to the large amount of submission they will receive due to the fact it is an OPEN casting call (though even in the future, do you research to be safe. i.e. If they ask for money, that’s a no!)

The casting director is AVY KAUFMAN. She’s a very big casting director who’s credits include Life of Pi, Salt, Scream 4 and Lincoln among others and has worked in the industry since the 1980′s. See her background via IMDB and Wikipedia.

Now go and submit and good luck!!!

What do you do? My heart has always been drawn to the presence of those suffering. I remember sitting with my parents and hearing stories of their hardship when they lived in the Philippines. You can imagine their dismay (but luckily, eventual acceptance and joy) when I told them I wanted to work on behalf of the poor. Five years later I find life has a funny way of coming full circle. I am now a Clothes Closet Coordinator at Sacred Heart, working face to face with poverty on a daily basis. My heart breaks, but it’s never been fuller than it is now.

This summer we worked on an official API for Unsplash to help make images even more accessible for makers. Soon after, we started working on trying to make this official API even simpler, which is how Unsplash Source was born.

With Unsplash Source, you can easily pull hi-res images from Unsplash into a product you might be building. You can filter by categories (like buildings, food, people), photographers, or featured photos to find the right look.

I was feeling really inspired the other day so I went outside and took some photos near where I live and I took one of the photos and used it as a reference for this background. Plus I’ve seen a lot of inspiring pictures on tumblr lately and I wanted to create something with the same feeling. Overall I’m happy with the result, there are parts I think could have turned out better, like the leaves. But I tried at least OTL

Xanthogramma Pedissequum

Durante una gita in montagna, non ho resistito a fotografare questo momento. Quest’insetto simile a delle api si chiama “Xanthogramma pedissequum” ed è utile all’equilibrio dell’ecosistema.
