Here's the breakdown.
I've been writing scripts for a long time.
I've been making short films for a long time.
I have lots of friends that make movies.
I have lots of material waiting to be made.
I have at least one night to work on it.
In an effort to turn this screenwriting / filmmaking / festival running thing I do into a full time job I have dedicated Monday Nights to working on whatever project comes to mind. I'm not just going to be working on monday nights mind you, but I work a full time job, I have a sick father, an apartment that still hasn't been painted, a wonderful girlfriend that wants to spend time with me and finding the hours to work on projects gets harder and harder. So at the bare minimum I am going to be spending Monday nights pushing forwards with making my career dreams a reality, and hopefully my friends will join me and we'll make some serious waves in 2011. Whether it be TV, Feature Films, Short Films, Web Series, Comic Books, Music video's or novels it's going to be fun.
I am deciding to Blog about my monday endeavours, not necessarily with specifics of the projects I'm working on as a focus, but with the thrill of working at something I love to do, and the fun of brainstorming with friends and creating something out of nothing, of storytelling. Maybe someone will read these blogs and will feel connected to the storytelling process and have a great idea they want to work on with me or with one of their own friends, and rather than complain about tv, or movies, choose to dedicate one night a week to making them better.
It's time to get this show on the road.
