Edited from a FLICC press release.  [May 9, 2003]





[]  Los Angeles Libertarian Party member Edward Bowers is calling on local area libertarian actors, writers, directors, and crew members, to unite under his FLICC (Freedom Loving Individuals Creating Content).

Bowers says: "FLICC will be a talent pool that we can all draw upon for media projects. Simply tell us who you are, your skills and interests, and give us your contact information. Soon we hope to put you to work (or be working for you).

"At this stage, we are mostly at the "there is no pay/public access level. But that is just the beginning. When we create something worth looking at, we need to deliver it to more than a few hundred websurfers or a few thousand cable access aficionados. Public access is an avenue that is available to us now and still underutilized. But that should be the training ground, not the destination.

"We want to raise our level of exposure. Raising the quality of the product will do that. It is my hope that FLICC will have creative people practicing their craft and getting their ideas realized on a regular basis, so that they develop their talents and build their resumes and get us to the point where people's definition of libertarian doesn't depend on Bill Maher or even Larry Elder."

Bowers says that while he is head of the Media Relations Committee of the Libertarian Party of California, the FLICC is independent of the LPC. "You don't have to belong to the Libertarian Party, just be a creative freedom loving individual. We will be centered in the L.A. area, but not necessarily exclusive to it."

The FLICC hopes to unite creative people to assist each other with a variety of media projects, both personal and professional, including PSAs, comedy skits, etc. Bowers describes the FLICC's current needs as "a location that looks like a TV or radio studio; people to play the roles of producer, director, script girl (or person), make-up person, mother, and young (adolescent or pre-adolescent) son, and a Clinton impersonator.
