“I can if they can.”


entertainers

An entertainer is a very broad and ambiguous term for what we want to see in performance. Yet we have come to know entertainers in pop culture as people who are famous. Circus acts are entertainers, but how many of them are mainstream. No, no; I am referring to the famous faces we see on television and film.

And the question remains, who are they really? And why are we enamored with them. What is it about the fame aspect that makes us want to gravitate toward them? And also, what does it mean in regards to today?

anyone can be

In today’s society, anyone who can build a platform is considered an entertainer. It used to be you had to go out to Los Angeles in hopes of being discovered. Now, as long as you have computer access, you can be the entertainer. If you have a YouTube channel that you have built, now you can have your own channel/s and become the entertainer.

But are these people really entertainers or just merely individuals we watch until the next more popular famous faces come out with something great?

sustainability

Here is the key difference between the entertainers we see on the internet and the famous faces. The famous faces have built something that is truly sustainable. And as for the others, they tend to break down over time. Because a lot of them are not building anything that is based in lasting. They have had a hit video that stood out, some stroke of luck.

Now all of a sudden we look to them like they’ve done all these great things. In reality, they are just window dressing; filling in for the next project of the bigger acts we know and love.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
