Making films and songs to empower as well as entertain.

Fran Sisco has been capturing thousands of hours of life around her for over thirty years, often in videos and now in film. As a transgender woman, Fran has been living as a full-time female since 1/1/11, and has been chronicling her amazing transition, in writings, in songs, in stage performances and plays, in videos and also in film. Also as a 2-brainer (strong left-brain with intense analytical and business skills as well as strong right-brain with an unusually broad range of creative, artistic and innovative talents coupled with relationship strengths), Fran's views of life and people often have a fresh perspective and enable her to undertake new endeavors and excel quickly. In 2017, her short film "Being a Trans Girl" won praise at Yofifest (also known as the Yonkers Film Festival) in New York and her many videos on youtube and facebook about the joy of being creative have attracted hundreds of thousands of viewers, fans and friends. Fran's immediate success after taking to the stage and entertaining fueled a quick and prolific journey as a stand-up comedian, as a singer/performer and as a producer or co-producer of many shows, often including her original songs or collaborated songs. Fran's left-brain (and male) life as a CPA and financial advisor has helped her to attain the trust and respect of a large number of individuals in her network, has enlarged her world view, and enabled her to spreader her artistic messages perhaps further than would have ordinarily been the case. Fran's right-brain skills and talents include writing (essays, poetry, songs, a 1,200 page draft book, songwriting, performing, inventing, visual art, acting and many more. Her right brain creativity and relationship skills has worked very well with her left-brain that includes the ability to analyze and develop solutions using her skills as a CPA (Certified Public Accountant), Personal Financial Specialist (PFS), AEP (Accredited Estate Planner), owner and manager of several small businesses (including three retail stores, video marketing business, and others) and the inventor of several products and services (including a system for synchronized presentation of lyrics on film to enhance the enjoyment of music, a forerunner of karaoke). As a holistic whole, Fran accomplishes significantly more than she would have if she operated predominately from one side. Fran has hosted cable television and radio shows over the last 30 years, including being co-host of the Crisis Help Radio Show at the popular WVOX 1460AM in New Rochelle. She has over 1,300 videos published on her youtube channel called VideoVoom. Fran lives with her daughter Kelly in New Rochelle, NY, and often travels bringing her message to thousands of people of happiness, positivity and seeing the silver lining.
