Getting Transparent

This past summer I had the insane blessing of getting to be part of a revolution. I was cast on the new, critically acclaimed, Jill Soloway TV series, TRANSPARENT on Amazon Prime. I am so proud to be part of this herstory making, this loving TV family, this art making, this truth telling, this exquisite storytelling about family.

Beloved American actor, Jeffrey Tambor plays Mort, a 68 year old father of 3 who is transitioning to Maura. When Maura reveals her secret to her family, everyone begins a journey of their own, many unraveling their own secrets. Spoiler alert, Jeffrey Tambor will snatch every single award there is in the industry next year for his role in Transparent.

ian on transparent smallIf you have not seen or heard of this series.. what the eff are you waiting for?! Do not starve yourself of this spiritual feeding one moment longer.

Wondering how on earth does this whole Amazon thing works? The way you stream Netflix to your TV is the same way you stream Amazon Prime. If you don’t have an account, you can sign up for a free 30 day trial and when your done watching Transparent, you can cancel it.

I’m so stinking grateful that I get to be part of this movement, this inclusive, gorgeous, art movement. Thank you Jill for believing I could do it before I did and letting me be a constellation. Thank you every single person involved with this beautiful project.

Thank you for your love, support and patience in waiting for my film to come out to the public! It goes on sale Tuesday, March 25, 2014 on my web site (

It will be available for immediate download, which is the fastest and least expensive way to get your hands on a copy of my movie. Or you can order the DVD for a few bucks more and get it in the mail in about a week.

I’m so proud and happy, I can’t even describe to you how excited I am to finally release this to the world..

For those of you who have been invested in this project, lovingly and financially, then I may not need to explain to you how its been happening.

But for you newby friends and fans, I feel like you should know about the the loving community around me that has helped make this film come together. I DID NOT DO THIS ALONE. I made a live standup comedy concert film, an archive of my work with the help of about 250 other people and I couldn’t have done it if just one of those people were not part of it.

From EVERY SINGLE Kickstarter donor, to my awesome film crew, Executive Producer Margaret Cho, Director Liam Kyle Sullivan, Editor Jade Carter, and Sound Engineer Tamara Johnson and Producer Sarah Martin, my Set Designers Mahlia Carey and LK Weiss and Production Manager, Jessie Boemper and sooooo many others, including the amazing audience who showed up! I needed all of you, thank you!

Once the film was in the can, it took many months to edit and months more to engineer the audio, and then more months submit to and wait to hear back from film festivals around the world. IAN HARVIE SUPERHERO got in to over 25 festivals around the world, and won 3 “best of the fest” awards. I was lucky enough to get to travel all over the US and EUR to screenings of the movie and watched non-English speaking audiences laugh at my jokes in German subtitles!

NOW FINALLY, the day is drawing near, where I can say to anyone who asks me now “what’s happening with your film?” I can finally say ITS OUT!! ITS HERE! MARCH 25TH!! JUST GO TO WWW.IANHARVIE.COM to read all about it, buy it, download it!

Thank you to everyone who helped with the making of this! I’m so appreciative, so grateful, thank you thank you thank you! Now there is one thing left that I will shamelessly ask..

Will you please spread the word and share this message and this link:

Love you all, mean it!
Ian Harvie
