Short film in the process…. again..

August 29, 2009.

Working on a short script that hopefully will be up and running in the coming months.  The script is an all male cast with the exception of bystanders.  But, the style of the story takes me back in my theatre days.  Where the rules do not apply and just have a good time writing a short script.   Continue reading

hair or not to hair

August 15, 2009.
Hair is one of the most important characteristics into making a character in my scripts.  A certain look with a hairstyle is just an ensemble of things going into making a film.  A lot of questions go into asking what the character is about.  Why is her hairstyle this way?  Is she copying someone, does she only look good with short hair?

Short film in the process..

Aug 13, 2009.

Sitting back and doing my daily routine on the internet, i’ll let you use your imagination for that… I found this photo of a girl posing her fashion style or “thing.”  Everything about her outfit gives me a result of wanting to do something quick.  I can hear talk a certain way, her persona is made up already in my mind.  Her hair style brings out a mysterious element and her clothes are beyond a statement in my mind.. Just another inspiration of a main character that I want to make in a short film or feature film. 

A little bit from the past.

Last night was a little bit of time to reflect where it all started.  Nine years ago, (it’s been that long) I attended a community college where I took an interest in writing and directing.   The first class that I took was theatre appreciation.  From there on, I really appreciated the art of storytelling, the affect it had on audience.  The tone or powerful message a play or story would have on anyone that would enjoy  it.   Continue reading

The Limits of Control

Last Thursday, I went to the New Beverly Cinema to watch a new film by Jim Jarmusch; The Limits of Control.  The pace and style of the film were right up my alley, which is slow. The pace was so slow to the point where the viewer could actually feel what the main character was going through. I’m in no way going to break this film down by points. But, i will say that I could understand why this film did not have a wide release. The truth, I don’t really recall this film ever opening in Los Angeles. Because of the pace and style of the film, regular film audience would not have the patience and open minded enough to give this film a chance.. This leads to my film, Betty I am. During the film, I starting thinking about pace or tempo.. I figured out some edits that would make my film a little more pace friendly to the audience. Plus, the story of my film will be much more refine. And, hopefully by the end of the year my film will be presented somewhere.. Still working on that, every single day.
