Brissa “Breezy” Marina Page, co-founder of Cricket Ranch, is today’s featured filmmaker. She is an independent creative director, producer, stylist and content creator based in Los Angeles, California. She shares her outspoken love for civil liberties and social justice with friends, family and collectors alike.
From the filmmaker herself:
Light Giver was a passion project for the Cricket Ranch, a production boutique and studio rental location. The Cricket Ranch is a five star location space I created with my partner, Coop Grafik. We are happy to work with artists in Los Angeles looking for a versatile location to shoot and create.
Follow our enchantress as she dances with the light as she reunites with her King at the end. Starring Aisha Anderson and featuring music remix by Therdchild. Shot in one night, we had a great time every second of the shoot and during post-production. I wanted to highlight my beautiful friend Aisha, and her belly dancing, costume and skills. She was brilliant.
My partner and I decided to create the Cricket Ranch as a location after noticing a need for more diversity on our social media timelines. The boring, thin cis-white model format was repetitive and we knew that we needed to be the change and inspire more photographers to do the same when they shoot here. We needed to see more black and indigenous people of colour, as well as strong, healthy body types from all walks of life.

Will, thank you. Brissa is a passionate advocate as well and I’m happy I’ve met her.
The sheer number of diverse artists you work with all over the globe always amazes me. But someday you’re gonna have to explain to me, very slowly, what exactly an NFT is.

Thanks for this support, Hetty. The Google and YouTube explainers pretty much sum it up. Digital contracts witnessed by all nodes on a distributed network on a blockchain. The contract is initiated and authorised (minted) by your crypto wallet. Where it gets complicated is the actual cryptocurrency part. That is the real beginning of the discussion.
