It will shown on December 10 which falls at 7:30pm at the Bellvarado studios at echo park.. On top are the postcards that I left at several places in Los Angeles to hopefully get some people to come out..:


January is pretty awesome with a little awful…

I couldn’t find a picture of myself writing, so going through some picture sets I found this.  It’s me writing some camera report, but the idea is me writing.  That’s what I’m doing right now, I took a break from writing my current script to write this post.  2011 is here, and so far there’s been a lot of up’s and downs.  The ups of course is my Invested.In for  project for my feature film Betty I am! The current count is $1,871 and $2,200 is needed with 12 days to go.. I’ll make it, there’s no doubt in my mind!

What turned out to be a hookah night

So what started to be a night of homemade grilled chicken taco’s, and playing some video games… turned out to be a night of Hookah..  With a long week of work, and a doze of wanting to leave a bad situation.. I had to come home and hang out with a few friends to start the weekend.  With the flavor of the tobacco hitting the air, I reflect on what has to be done on my created side.  Next week hopefully will launch a crowd funding thing to finish Betty I Am.

new point in life….sorta.

The week of August starter sorta good. .  Finally making progress towards my feature film Betty I am. Decided on using the web program or something around those lines called Kickstarter.  It’s to raise up the money needed to finish my film.  Me and my associate are putting it together and will be out soon.  And, wait and see.  I had this idea in mind, but I didn’t really had any fate that it would work.  But, from some talk from a friend, if Kickstarter doesn’t work….well.. .I’ll be in the same place I am right now and that’s OK!

A poster for betty…

September 5, 2009.

It came to my attention that I don’t really have a poster for my film Betty I am.. Just recently I started working on PhotoShop. .. still very, very lost!!  I had a few ideas.. may be in the coming days, i’ll throw more stuff up on the blog..

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.


So today.. The sound mix of Betty I Am started!  The location is around the Howard Hughes Center, entering the building thinking what’s ahead.  After raiding their office fridge, with the sugar rush to bounce off the walls, I knew I was ready for a small session.   Four hours past, the result was two scenes were finished, sorta…..  And, for the rest, it’s a work in progress.  The style of the film makes a bit difficult for my sound guy, the sound presents a challenge, I was told so…….I’ll see  how things go after two weeks… . I still need to get this script done… .. stress relief needed soon…
