And just a bit more, to be absolutely sure.

OK, well, a bit more then.

Training Myself At Home

FilmIt’s hard to make films when life is happening faster than you can manage it. I’m raising a son, planning a wedding, and trying to get this site started all while trying to keep myself making movies. Have I made a movie in the 4 weeks since “graduating” New York Film Academy? No. So I’ve made a plan to keep my skills sharp while life is wrapping itself around me.

I’m going to search the web for short stories and scripts and film them with friends and anyone else willing to stand in front of the camera. I’m also reading everything I can get my hands on. Right now I’m reading three books at once: Rebel Without A Crew, The Guerilla Film Makers Handbook, and The 101 Habits Of Highly Successful Screenwriters. Hopefully the three together will keep my mind on film when I’m not thinking about crayons and sippy cups or bridesmaids and table linens.
