[Thankful2012] Item 12, 13, 14, 15 & 16: My Twenties

I'm closing the last few days of my 20s this week.  I know the big 3-0 freaks a lot of people out, and maybe I'll feel a little out of sorts once it hits, but for the most part, I'm pretty happy to say goodbye to my 20s. They've been a little too tumultuous for … Continue reading [Thankful2012] Item 12, 13, 14, 15 & 16: My Twenties

Life Has a Funny Way

After a fun and informative trip to the Austin Film Festival, I was returning with renewed motivation to get to work on STILL, a desire I've expressed sporadically for the past, oh, 15 months or so.  I attended a number of panels on independent filmmaking, and I was excited to get back to my own, … Continue reading Life Has a Funny Way

[STILL] Stories and Storyboards

Happy Monday, everyone. I hope you are better slept than I am, and I hope that if you are as critically underslept it is for reasons as delightful as mine. I found out Friday I made the Top 100 + Ties and advanced to Round 2 of Creative Screenwriting's Cyberspace Open, which is pretty fun … Continue reading [STILL] Stories and Storyboards
