LIBERTARIANS FORM ACTORS TROUPE
Edited from a FLICC press release.
[May 9, 2003]
Los Angeles Libertarian Party member Edward Bowers is calling on local
area libertarian actors, writers, directors, and crew members, to unite
under his FLICC (Freedom
Loving Individuals Creating Content).
Bowers says: "FLICC
will be a talent pool that we can all draw upon for media projects. Simply tell us who you are, your skills and interests, and give us your
contact information. Soon we hope to put you to work (or be working
"At this stage,
we are mostly at the "there is no pay/public access level. But that
is just the beginning. When we create something worth looking at,
we need to deliver it to more than a few hundred websurfers or a few thousand
cable access aficionados. Public access is an avenue that is available
to us now and still underutilized. But that should be the training
ground, not the destination.
"We want to raise
our level of exposure. Raising the quality of the product will do
that. It is my hope that FLICC will have creative people practicing
their craft and getting their ideas realized on a regular basis, so that
they develop their talents and build their resumes and get us to the point
where people's definition of libertarian doesn't depend on Bill Maher or
even Larry Elder."
Bowers says that
while he is head of the Media Relations Committee of the Libertarian
Party of California, the FLICC is independent of the LPC. "You
don't have to belong to the Libertarian Party, just be a creative freedom
loving individual. We will be centered in the L.A. area, but not
necessarily exclusive to it."
The FLICC hopes
to unite creative people to assist each other with a variety of media projects,
both personal and professional, including PSAs, comedy skits, etc. Bowers describes the FLICC's current needs as "a location that looks like
a TV or radio studio; people to play the roles of producer, director, script
girl (or person), make-up person, mother, and young (adolescent or pre-adolescent)
son, and a Clinton impersonator.
