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. .

Waiting for the clean up phase and if it makes any sense to myself or a few readers that I will end up asking. ..

from nothing to something

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?

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
