Being a female young actor with nonimpactful roles for girls, turned young filmmaker craving and carving her own path. We go through the journey of making it as an indie female film filmmaker, the rise the fall, the reality of Hollywood and the depression all whilst having an Academy Award winning actor as a lead in a film with International creditable with awards from film festivals, in addition, to having an Oscar nom and still getting no acknowledgments or serious contract deals.
Welcome to Web3 - Film3 where all your dreams can become your reality without getting the life sucked out of you. Jordan Bayne’s speaks this week at the classic International Cannes Film Festival on two Web3 panels discussing the future of film making for all, esp women, non binary, pop and lgbtqia+ creators.
JORDAN BAYNE is an award-winning writer, director, actor and NFT film pioneer. Her career began acting with Golden Globe winner Martin Sheen in A STRANGER IN THE KINGDOM and includes Showtime’s Poltergeist The Legacy, Law & Order and more. Her first role in the theatre landed her onstage with Golden Globe winner James Gandolfini and Oscar winner Marisa Tomei in the Naked Angels production of “Summerwinds”. Bayne had an award nominated turn in the film UNDER HELLGATE BRIDGE with Dominick Chianesemand Vincent Pastore where one critic noted, ”Jordan Bayne proves that true strength lies in vulnerability.”
Bayne’s writing and directorial debut was the short film ARGO, starring Jordana Spiro
[Ozark, Good Wife]. Her critically acclaimed film THE SEA IS ALL I KNOW, starring Academy
Award winner Melissa Leo won Best Short, Best of Fest, and Best Actress in its festival run earning consideration for an Academy Award. The film landed distribution with IndieFlix,
and worldwide licensing with ShortsTV after becoming a Vimeo Staff Pick. Leo described Bayne as “one of the finest directors I have ever worked with”.
Currently she is overseeing development on her American feature THE LAW OF UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES as well as several US/Spain projects — THE LORCA PROJECT, a digital series, feature film BLACK SORROW and her upcoming NFT funded feature film project, SHADOW.
In February 2021 Bayne started the original Elevating Women in the NFT Space on Clubhouse, and founded the NFT Film Squad, the first Space and community for filmmakers trailblazing the Film3 eco system. She curated Spaces bringing attention to groundbreaking talent such as Julie Pacino, Miguel Faus, J Harry Edminston, and David Bianchi. Pioneering the NFT terrain, she was featured in Deadline Hollywood, The Blackchain, and NFT Evening for her truly cinematic, groundbreaking motion picture RED FLAGS which was minted on the blockchain in January 2022.

Carcerem The Series Fantasy Fiction Audio Drama Series with Voiceover Actor Dana Powers
Shakespeare meets Voiceover with VO star Dana Powers, the empowerment of emotions for the love of the theatre!
Being a mom, motherhood, and demystifying the stigma of being a working mom in Entertainment.
Born and raised in Northern California, I started acting at the age of 8 years old in community theatre and then was accepted into a performing arts high school where my love and skills grew. I graduated from CSU Northridge with a BA in theatre, was introduced to voiceover, and joined an LA-based theatre company called independent Shakespeare Co. I've worked with a number of theatre companies in Los Angeles, but primarily the Independent Shakespeare Co. performing Free Shakespeare in Griffith Park for 7 years. I began my voiceover career in 2013, and it ultimately became my entire focus, along with directing and coaching, and I absolutely love it!

Divine Consciousness Music NFTs and September Mourning with Emily Lazar
Emily Lazar is a creative force who has achieved success in various artistic outlets.
She is a multi- disciplinary artist fronting the rock band September Mourning which is based on a comic book series that she created and is published through Image/ Top Cow Comics. She designed the costuming and fashion of the world which she brings to life on stage… and has also recently extended the storyline through music/ animation/ art/ storytelling NFT’s she released which are now sold out on Open Sea. She made history as being the first female metal/ rock musician to mint and sell an NFT online.
The music tells an epic tale of “heartbreak, loss, pain, joy, love, redemption, but most of all, courage…” while the comic books chronicle the first two chapters of her story. September Mourning revives the concept of rock star meets superhero. If Marilyn Manson and X-Men's Storm had a kid, it would be September Mourning, who also cites influences as varied as Rob Zombie, Disturbed, and Muse.
“For me, the project is a story, a theatrical art piece,” Lazar explains. “Music is the backbone, but for this to work, it has to include the imagery and the narrative all symbiotically linked into the live performance, videos, art, nft’s etc. Music taps into your innermost being. There’s something very intimate and personal about it.”
The character of September Mourning is a human-reaper hybrid, who feels the need to give some human souls a second chance, and thus starts an epic battle between the living and the dead. To expound on this narrative, Lazar created, wrote and published the graphic novel (four books in one) entitled “September Mourning: The Complete Collection” through Image/ Top Cow Comics in partnership with iconic comic book artist Marc Silvestri, who is working on Batman comics and is owner of Top Cow Productions (Witchblade, The Darkness). and partner in Image Comics.Together, they pulled together the story of September Mourning in graphic form, to accompany, and enhance the musical message.
Having performed at large festivals like Rock on the Range and Download Festival and shared the stage with acts like Rob Zombie, Slipknot and Five Finger Death Punch among others, September Mourning has already built up an impressive fan base, which she calls her “Children of Fate,” constantly encouraging them to have “the courage to embrace their passion… to allow yourself to follow your heart and not be a slave to your fears. To know that the only boundaries that exist in our lives are the ones we allow.”
Lazar's creative talents extend into visual art/ modeling, as well. She has been the face of many alternative fashion companies' campaigns over the years such as Manic Panic NYC, Draven Shoes, Leg Avenue and the Japanese line Komachi Dark Lolita to name a few.... often styling the campaigns herself.
