After years of working hard at the goal of finishing my first feature film…. I just got one step closer. My film BETTY I AM was accepted to the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival. 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!

A quarter of my script done! And, warhol is good for everyone!

That was one good piece of cake!!  First to my writing!!  After some tough editing and decision-making, my new feature script is 20 pages in!  Not done, I repeat!  Not done!!  From 30 to 20 pages.. and that’s getting things done.. Basically the script is along theme of the film TOKYO… The story  all takes place in parts of Los Angeles; where a certain trend dominates the scene.  The sketch below is from a good friend  Yasmin Khudari..  And hopefully by the end of the year we’ll be working on something I been working on since the age of 17!!   Cant’ say enough about this sketch!!  But, the females in the film will most likely follow in this fashion..  some kind of preview of a work in progress. .

A little bit from the past.

August 02, 2009.

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

Getting caught up..

Just getting by and getting ready to write some stuff tonight.. Had an interesting night last friday.. Attended the Crusaders & Haters party at Royal/T..  brought to you by Zippercut .  The party was pretty amazing.. The more I go to these events, the more i see it provides a playground for people to show their creative/crazy/inspiring  side, which also helps me write.. Writing is life..

Wishing in the future, I’ll be able to purchase some kind of video camera.  Unfortunately, for the way things look financially for me at this point of my life, It’ll be a while.   I would sure love to post videos or take awesome pictures of my daily life and provide a better idea of the things that inspire me to write.   But, the highlight for me this passed week was a screening of  The Warriors.. A cult classic.  Not only there was a screening,  but also a special guest appearance of Ajax (James Remar) Mercy (Deborah Van Valkenburgh)  Cochise (David Harris).  The interview of the three of them was very informative and so interesting for someone like me.  They basically talked about all of the side stories that went on during the making of the film.   Also, delighted to hear about how Walter Hill directed his actors which also I gain some knowledge.  No, I’m not going to mimic his style or come anything close to his style..  I direct my own way .. Hopefully in the future I’ll get into talking about directing films or actors.. Not being afraid to get your vision done.  Not getting too sidetrack from this topic… This was a great night.. 

Lately, I been taking a B & W Photography Class and I love it!  So, I’m always looking for opportunities to take pictures of the happenings of Los Angeles.  Tuesday, I was a victim of the Nike-Lebron-James picture taking P.R. move.  There was this small mini concert in culver city where a J-pop star (Kanon Wakeshima)  was going to make an appearance for an album release party type of fiasco.  Believing this was an awesome opportunity to take some photos and practice the art of photography. . After only taking one picture which you see below… A hand grabs the front of my camera, a female sony worker (yes, a sony product) tells me with authority that I was not allowed to take photos of Kanon.   To make things short, after three songs ..the concert was over.. .   The performance was very entertaining.. Another reason that I  wanted to attend, its not very often you see someone using a cello instrument in a rock/pop type of act… And, just one more reason to throw out there.. I have a script in the works where it involves a female singer.. And, just seeing how things are after the show.  It gave me a great perspective of the aftermath, clean up, crew working to strike down.  How Kanon  Wakeshima exits the building with her handlers.. It was quite helpful.   

Cartoon Life

The last couple of months have been interesting ones.. I received some artwork from people who randomly drew me…. A guess the notion of me being a real-life character is more believable than first thought….  I say about 5 people has done some kind drawing with my likeness.. and that’s okay…
