Playing with other people's money.

Live My Life provides a much needed shot of timely, thought-provoking, musically forward, irreverence to the status quo.

Competing with over 700 films from around the world, the Live My Life Music Video, directed by choreographer/director Michael Cornell of Los Angeles, CA (Semplice Pictures) and executive produced by Departed actress Tracey Paleo (Brink Tank Productions), has been awarded Honorable Mention at the inaugural 2010 Los Angeles International Film Festival. For these first time filmmakers, new to the independent film festival circuit, the 2010 LAI Film Fest award is prestigious and is the second of two accolades this summer. Earlier this year, Live My Life was also selected as one of only five Finalists at the June 2010 SoCal Film Market, winning recognition in the music video category. The LAI Film Fest garnered overwhelming international attention, postponing the selection date twice, and a day behind schedule, making the Live My Life award a stunning surprise to the filmmakers.

“Live My Life provides a much needed shot of timely, thought-provoking, musically forward, irreverence to the status quo,” quotes author, journalist, and former Goldman Sachs managing director, Nomi Prins. Ms Prins, a supporter and fan since meeting Ms. Paleo and Mr. Cornell in December 2009, also offered a statement for the official website of the video that that created a light-handed flashpoint around TARP, the subject of her book, " It Takes A Pillage...," Wiley Publishing 2009.

Scheduled to screen on Friday, October 8, 2010 at 9:30pm, at LAI Film Fest in Santa Monica, CA, Live My Life is a rebel rock and roll, musical video, that parodies TARP and offers a sharp, irreverent portrait of American Capitalism, Idealism and the Wall Street Bailout of 2008/09. US Treasury Secretary and former Goldman Sachs CEO, Henry Paulsen is the inspiration for the main character.

The Los Angeles International Film Festival is a new wave film festival, founded by and for independent filmmakers, and supported by established industry professionals, independent filmmakers, and individual financiers, who seek to recognize the craft of filmmaking and storytelling.
