#SwissTalentLA: CONGRATULATIONS Yangzom Brauen, on “kickstarting” your project “Who killed Johnny?” Bravissima!

with one comment

The creative Angeleno-Swiss community is at it again! First, we saw many of them in the fun web comedy series “Hallo Hollywood” – Now they are working on a new 90-minute comedy, starring Melanie Winiger, Carlos Leal, Max Loong, and other Angeleno-European expats. An exceptionally supportive cast and crew made this LOW budget project a reality!

WHO KILLED JOHNNY? is produced by Angelena-Ticinese Shari Yantra Marcacci (IMDB, known for “An African Election“), directed by Yangzom Brauen (wiki, IMDB), and recently completed shooting in a house in the hills of Los Angeles, over the course of eight days.

Now that it’s “in the can”, the team was successful at raising the final $20,000 needed to complete post-production, by way of their 30-Day online kickstarter campaign.

The goal is to successfully present WHO KILLED JOHNNY? to theater and film festival audiences worldwide!

Help our Angeleno-Swiss & Friends, and spread the word by sharing this with everyone around you, who would enjoy seeing this fun comedy.

Check out their kickstarter.com page, have a look “behind the scenes”- and watch the interview video with Yangzom!

Backers are set to receive cool gifts – including a signed copy of Yangzom’s “Across Many Mountains” – or a role in one of Yangzom’s future film projects!

leave a comment »

Fresh from the heart of Europe, BrunchButler is on a mission to redefine “brunch culture” and provide Angelenos with a first-of-its-kind, luxury experience.

Established in Switzerland in 2008 and launching March 17th, 2012 in Los Angeles, BrunchButler offers brunch access 24/7, 365 days a year through a unique brunch delivery and catering service.

Among many other choices, BrunchButler’s signature item is a traditional, nutrient-rich Swiss Birchermüesli made with rolled oats, fresh fruit and berries, nuts and seeds and commonly served over milk or yogurt.

Brunch is served chilled in sleek, white and silver presentation boxes fit for two (or more), with a wide variety of gourmet menu items to pick from. Each BrunchButler box is customizable with combinations of 3 – 4 courses each.

Congratulations to Artspace Warehouse: TOP 5 PICK by Angeleno Magazine!

turn to page 110...

I love this place – but then again, I LOVE the Weisman Museum, and some tell me I’m crazy because of that… “Modern Art is just a bit of color on a canvas, a couple of paint specks, and there…” “I can do that”… yeah, right…

I thoroughly enjoyed browsing through this newest addition to the vibrant Euro-LA Gallery Scene, where young, upcoming Starving Artists from Germany and Switzerland are shown alongside Angeleno “Greats” – creating a cultural bridge and “Axis of Contemporary Art” between Köln, Zürich and Los Angeles.

There is Art for every pocketbook – that’s what I genuinely LOVE about this place. There’s room for the Elite Galleries, but Art lovers who don’t have gagillions to spend would really enjoy owning some cool stuff at a price where they don’t have to start another housing bubble to finance the thing hanging on their walls… right?

From Giacometti-Like wire statuettes, to artsy trinkets, to a series of amazing pop-art pieces the size of my whole living room – there’s something for every Taste and every Wallet. We may not be totally ready in this economy to splurge on Art yet, but the Artspace Warehouse makes it way more “Erschwinglich” (learn that word, Angelenos)… (affordable, yes… )

Check out some snapshots taken during a recent visit…

Congratulations to the creative entrepreneurial genius of Swiss Galerist Claudia Deutsch, President of the Beverly Hills Women’s Club and St.Gallen Alumni.

Claudia, YOU MADE(IT)IN.LA+!
