Despite all odds

I’ve completed my third feature length script, with two more in production.

—————————

"Poor Choices" tells the story of Jen and Allie, two girls that are struggling to make ends meet. When one comes up with the idea to kidnap someone as a joke, the other takes it as a serious suggestion. Desperation breeds chaos in this dark comedy of women, mobsters, Mormons and gay bars.

—————————

It took me three days to write this first draft. I started last Thursday, worked then, Saturday and this past evening and it’s finally done. Now to refine it and keep it amazing. If you’re interested in taking a gander let me know. I’ll be happy to send it to you.

Fucking priceless, why do I want this to be an actual movie…

"Seconds," by Bryan Lee O’Malley
This book is filled with wonderful little moments like this. They make me smile and they make me laugh out loud. Can’t recommend it enough.

Seriously a great read if you’re going through any kind of crisis or just want a light book.

A message to those who say writing/designing women is so hard

Don’t be a fucking idiot. We are all people. We all bleed, we all breathe, we all eat, we all swear, we all have sex and we all make poor life decisions while thinking “Oh god what will my family think of me.”

Essentially, write a character and then pick the gender later. A gender should not inherently thrust the story forward unless it’s a Rom-Com or Romantic drama film and even then it shouldn’t. Because guess what…I have a secret for you.

There is such a thing as same sex couples.

I know this must come as a shock to you, but seriously grow up and realize that women and men can both be interesting, can both be heroes, can be protagonists and antagonists without falling into the same bland characters we’ve always seen.

Try taking your favorite stories and swapping the genders. If it greatly changes the way the story plays out, then there’s an issue with the writing. But if you’re like me and realize that it does nothing but change the perspective, then you’re in the right and you get a big gold star.

My film budget:

That’s a significant increase from my budget.

We should work together. Create the greatest/cheapest film ever made.

I’m writing a story about two women who kidnap someone in order to pay their rent.

And I don’t even have to try. These characters are so ridiculous it’s practically doing it itself.

Oh screenplays, how I’ve missed you.


Holy shit

I am so unmotivated to write or do anything lately.

My lady is having serious home troubles and I can’t fix that.

Finally start big boy college and I’m so worried that I’m just going to end up dropping out.

I’m supposed to be moving in with my best friend and my lady but my best friend who is really the deciding factor on our place is dragging his feet (brewing beer instead of going and touring locations).

I’m supposed to be shooting a short film soon and I still don’t have a cast complete because my DP is out of town and I wanted to tour locations with him to get a sense of where we are staging what.

I got a tweet from Travis Oberlander, producer of the film “Layover”, and he wants to meet and discuss my “no-budget” feature…that I haven’t even written and am now second guessing everything I’m doing.

Is this even the right path anymore? I feel so overwhelmed with life and I just want to hit a pause button so I can catch up.

Not to mention my one year anniversary is coming up soon and I don’t have any money to spend on lavish gifts.

All I can say is, generic white guy problems. First world problems and life problems. All this bitching will amount to nothing and I will eventually get over it but good god does it feel good to let it out in the air.

Pacific Rim has a Build-Your-Own-Jaeger feature on their website. Some folks haven’t taken it as seriously as I suspect the PR folks thought they would.

CANADA WE ARE ALWAYS SO SORRY

HOLY SHIT I FOUND EVEN MORE.
