Introduction // Let's be honest...neither of us know who I am.

Greetings and thanks for reading my first post. I'm joining this community via the recent @justinsunsteemit announcement and nervously optimistic to share my curiosities and quandaries in this playground of blocks and chains.

I am an independent storyteller who has worked in almost every medium of entertainment. You can find me in over 100 projects on IMDb, some you may like, others you may not. My social media handles are below to help verify...it me:

For 20 years, I have been obsessed with micro-budget storytelling and the integration of innovative tools to offer new voices non-traditional access to resources and audiences. For the last decade, this has primarily meant making a lot of gambles in digital technology to experiment with potential opportunities to allow creators and audiences to share in the risk and reward of independent storytelling.

I affectionally call these projects "fiascos," a borrowed term from Italian glassmaking where a bottle with a flaw is recycled into a functional flask. I do not believe there are any "unworthy" stories. Art is art. And we are all growing and learning in this deeply personal and collaborative craft. I believe in a culture of abundance with room for everyone and prioritize the ensemble over any single team member, including myself.

This brings my to the steemit community. As a creator, I have been taken advantage of on several occasions, often by big centralized entities who just happen to have fancier lawyers. For my current film in development, I openly mused about the possibility of making it a "dMovie" to tether the Tron ecosystem together. Surprisingly, this caught the attention of the community and I'm discussing a possible release later this year to experiment with a smart contract that could be recognized by Hollywood and independent creators for multi-layer real-time residuals.

We'll get into more on future posts and I look forward to what we can build together.

Thank you for your time and talent,

B

This sounds interesting. Welcome to Steemit and to the Steem blockchain. You actually have a Steem blockchain account, not a Steemit account. Steemit is just/only a dApp on the Steem blockchain. And since you are talking about a "dMovie", you might be interested in "DTube", which is a video sharing platform on the Steem blockchain. There are many dApps on the Steem blockchain. Have fun exploring the Steem blockchain! And good luck!

Thanks! Appreciate the clarification and I’ve been enjoying DTube and looking to start posting my short form stuff there :-)

Welcome on board :) LoL love the title, think that's accurate for most people right XD

The "steemit community" is actually the steem community, steemit is just the first and therefore most well known front end. While you're still fresh I'm going to throw the idea of steempeak out there because I think it's much nicer ;D (log in the same way, and speaking of which I hope you're using your posting key).

The "dmovie" thing sounds interesting!

Will check it out! Thanks!

What kind of stories? Are you talking about games, programs, videos, books, or a little bit of everything?

I’ve done a bit of everything :-) but mostly long form narrative storytelling on stage and screen

Man that project with Hollywood sounds interesting, good luck with it. I didn't know Hollywood was already experimenting with decentralised technology though, times are really getting exciting now!

Welcome Man, all the best here in the steemiverse...

Thanks so much!!!

Welcome to steemit @brendanabradley.

Welcome the new steemians. Have a great day!

Welcome to Steel! We are the cannabis community of Steel, and we are always happy to see new members. So you partake of not, you are still family. Good luck on your journey, we sure hope you like this place as much as us.

Welcome to the Steemit community @brendanabradley!
We sincerely hope you find everything you are looking for and have found a new home here.

Eight suggestions to consider:

  1. Guard your passwords carefully, and only publish with the posting key,
  2. Use your active key only for wallet transactions, keychain and steemconnect,
  3. The master password is only used to reset compromised passwords,
  4. DO NOT lose your passwords; copy and store offline,
  5. Do not publish other people's work, be it photos or written, without credit, and
    be sure to source all of your work, even if it is your own
    .
  6. An introduceyourself tag is used only once , and
  7. When you open your steemit.com, in the upper right corner of the page there are 3 bars. Click on those, and then on the "welcome", and you will get a lot of reading material that will help you.
  8. Do NOT open any links in memos or comments that you do not know who they belong to. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is, so the old saying goes. There is nothing free here.

I found you because @xcountytravelers and @brittandjosie from @heyhaveyamet presented and promoted your publication to get more exposure and help you grow faster.

If you find yourself overwhelmed and need some guidance, or if you have any questions, there are informed Steemians available who can help you; you can click to go to the Steem Terminal in Discord here:

Have fun and happy Steeming!

Welcome to the steem show mate, place is pretty hectic so take your time, took me a while to get a hang of it, you should try hanging out in dTube or 3speak with the other video creators and reach out in their comments section, thats how it finally clicked for me

Anyways welcome and hope you enjoy figuring this place out and helping the rest of us figure it out lol

Was not familiar with 3speak! Thank you!

Welcome Brendan!
Great to have you here and hear about your ideas and projects. :)

Thanks so much!!! Any advice for sharing with the steemians?

Hi there and welcome!
There is a HUGE art/creative scene here on Steem. I'm constantly surprised by the talent that's just floating around.
There's a lot to navigate at first, but check out the #creativecoin tag. Literally, anything creative will be there. There are more specific ones (of course) and Tribes/Communities/hives... But baby steps are accepted.
Enjoy the journey!
