    6 // Momentum Baby!

    Embark on a theatrical odyssey with me, Tyler Lockamy, as I recount the transformative experience of becoming Frederick Treves in "The Elephant Man". The raw emotion and authentic performance that emerged on stage was a journey in itself, challenging me to navigate the complex landscape of a character's psyche. The conversation then shifts gears to the lighter tones of "Baskerville," where I don the deerstalker of the infamous Sherlock Holmes. And it doesn't stop there; I also delve into stimulating discussions with my colleague Daniel Hill on the "Redding Sound" podcast and shed light on the "Leaders Playground" podcast with neuroscientist Dr. Irene Salter, an endeavor close to my heart that aims to fuel creativity and personal development.

    The narrative of this episode is one of perpetual motion—how the momentum of creativity can carry us through the peaks and valleys of artistic endeavors. I draw parallels to the indie filmmaking landscape, where perseverance and the luxury of time often go hand in hand, and share my joy in exploring various avenues of expression, from drumming to the serenity of farm life. Coupled with personal milestones like a significant health transformation, this episode is an invigorating mix of introspection and celebration. As I look forward to sharing more on my upcoming ventures, including a play project update, I extend an invitation to you to join this vibrant community and share in the excitement of these narratives unfolding.

    5 // The Thrills and Challenges of Live Theater and The Impact of AI in Film Production

    Ever wondered about the thrilling world of live theater? Buckle up, because we're taking you on a wild ride through our current production, Cascade Christmas, and the unexpected challenges that accompany the staging of such a grand spectacle. And oh, do we have an opinion or two on Netflix's film "The Killer"! Spoiler alert: It left us wanting.

    Lift the curtain with us on the nitty-gritty reality of being a background actor. From waiting in hot tents for hours, to the hustle for a SAG voucher, we're sharing our personal trials and tribulations from the set of Las Vegas. Plus, we're dishing the details on the new contract rights for performers in the film industry - hello, 7% increase in minimum compensation and wage hikes for background actors, stand-ins, and photo doubles!

    But the real star of our discussion is the impact of artificial intelligence in film and TV production. Get ready for a spirited debate on the use of digital replicas, CGI, and the controversial role of AI in creating synthetic performers. And, in the spirit of keeping it real, we’ll also be sharing our struggles with perfectionism in content creation. Remember, all that glitters is not gold in the world of Hollywood and theater, and we're here to shine a light on it all.

    4 // Handling Performance Anxiety, Casting, Collaborations, and Creating Your Own Hollywood

    Ever experienced anxiety before a big performance? Join me on this journey as I share my own tales of handling nerves ahead of a play, explore my reflections on the movie 'It Follows', and unravel the self-created narratives of failure that may be holding us back.

    What if you could collaborate with your admired directors? I share my aspirations of working with industry stalwarts like SpectreVision, Tyler Cornack, Ryan Kruger, and Jim Cummings. We'll also pull back the curtain on the intriguing process of casting, the overwhelming influx of submissions, and the thrill of selecting the perfect actor for each role. A discussion on my vision for future storytelling and roles I want to be part of leaves no stone unturned. 

    Lastly, ponder with me on the importance of mentorship and self-initiative. Hear about the guiding influence of my mother, my business partner Michael Ryan, and SpectreVision’s Daniel Noah, and why I urge all aspiring actors and filmmakers to create their own projects. Let's explore the future of the film industry together, understand the courage required to make something truly inspiring, and how you can create your own Hollywood in your backyard with the right tools and know-how. Buckle up for an inspiring journey into the world of cinema!

    Unearth the magic hidden in scripts, the allure of roles, and the adrenaline rush of performing. Hear about the time I had the audience in stitches during the musical Spamalot, and how comedy in theater continues to be my favorite. There’s more than just reminiscing though - we delve into the nitty-gritty of acting and filmmaking, the highs, the lows, and the in-betweens. Get ready to hear about a recent film project that makes my heart swell with pride and my aspirations for the future.

    Dive headfirst into the world of acting and filmmaking with us. Step into my shoes and walk down the memory lane, from my humble beginnings to the city of stars.
