Things I want you to know

I’ll post the music video for the Offset Spectacles in July when I come back from LA. It just needs a polish. 

I’ve been working on a feature script about post 90’s high school girls which I’m trying to shoot at the end of this summer or possibly next spring. 

I also want to shoot my short film Youth, probably next Spring.  I’ll probably do the fundraising for it on Kickstarter.com sometime this fall.  

Most of my time goes into the day job and living normal life.  If I were more disciplined I could probably get more done, quicker.  But drinking, sex and all sort of emotional things get in the way and progress is sacrificed for experience I suppose. 

I’ll be in LA from mid-June to early July.  I wanna shoot something while I’m home.  We’ll see if that happens.

I think I’m going to start updating this blog more often with musings, instagram photos and film photos I’ve yet to edit.

Never Looking Back (2012).

from now until mid-July, I’ll be occupied with a script I’ve been commissioned to write.  but last night, I smoked some trees and was able to make a second cut of don’t look back and now I feel pretty good about it.  not saying that I think it’s a good but that there’s nothing more I can do to improve it in editing.  so now that I’m down to fine-cutting, sometime in the near future, between finishing the commissioned script (July) and pre-production on late spring early summer (Aug), maybe I can go in the studio and do ADR, color correct, record foley, and mix sound.  not likely that I’ll finish as I also work about 30 hours a week at an corporate job but it could happen if I try really hard.  I hate to have to do post on two separate films come September but maybe that will be the case.  Oh yeah, I guess draft one of the feature script is not happening until this Fall.

late spring early summer, draft 1.

late spring early summer, draft 1.

I have to promote myself better.  I don’t like the thought of putting old work on the internet, naive amateurish stuff from way back.    But I don’t think I have a choice in the matter.  Just lay it out bare and be proud of how far I’ve come along?

I’ve decided to create a film related blog, and hopefully I won’t censor myself too much. 

In the shower, I realized something.  I haven’t had deep feelings for a long time.  It’s hard to try and be an artist in this state.  When I said I worried I had nothing to say, I think this was what I was talking about.  Now, I think it’s time to try and be more honest and more intimate with the past.

I hope the next draft of late spring early summer will be more emotionally sincere than it is right now.  Now it’s solid, it’s good but I want it to be a fucking work of art and aspiring for less would be a disservice to myself and to anyone working on the project. 

I believe I have a very good short film ready to be made in a few months.  I’ve ever believed that about anything I’ve written or wanted to make before because it’s never been true until now.  

I’ve been looking for money for a while now but in the end, I don’t think anyone will finance this film.  It is very disappointing, but not unexpected.  

No matter what happens, I will find a way to make it, even If it means saving up pennies at a time and or begging for help on the internet.
