In the Trenches—Day 58 Year 2:  Other People’s Dreams

Day 58 Year 2: New Dreams have arrived in the Declare Your Dream Experimental Motivation Project!  And they were just what the Transition Doctor ordered.  Thank you god, goddess, all that is for these wonderful new Dreamers and their beautiful dreams! What is it about other people’s declared dreams in this experiment that make me so happy? I think part of it is that the vulnerability of the Dreamer instantly opens my heart.  It isn’t easy declaring any dream, no matter how small or how big it is.  It’s the first step in actually creating it and therefore, it is terrifying.  The fact that all of these people were brave enough to write down what they dream to have or...

In the Trenches—Day 51 Year 2:  Transitioning

Day 51 Year 2: tran·si·tion noun  1. movement, passage, or change from one position, state, stage, subject, concept, etc., to another; change: the transition from adolescence to adulthood.    Or in my case: the transition from production to post-production.  The transition from insane to sane! Transitions.  I really hate them.  And I certainly don’t do them gracefully.  Never have.  In the last three and a half weeks since I wrapped Collusions, I have been going non-stop but in the last 16 days, I started losing it…becoming a true loony toon.  Certifiable.  Out of my flippin’ mind.  Whatever you want to call it.  I was it.  I’m less crazy now but still crazy. ...

Travel Column: Up and Away, Down to Earth—Delhi, India

Travel Column: Up and Away, Down to Earth—Delhi, India

Dear Friends, In light of Valentine’s Day, I had planned to write about my travels in India; namely, the love that embodies the Taj Mahal.  Completed in the 1600s, it was built as a mausoleum and eternal resting place by the emperor Shah Jahan for himself and his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal.  Upon her premature death, the emperor, grief stricken and heartbroken, built the wonder in her honor.  Romantic?  I think it’s worthy. One article.  That was the plan. But 24 hours into the story of India, I had already reached 2,600 words, and I was nowhere near the Taj Mahal.  This architectural jewel and tale of love still eluded me, yet I couldn’t rush through all...

In the Trenches—Day 35 Year 2: Collusions is in the can!

In the Trenches—Day 35 Year 2:  Collusions is in the can!

Day 35 Year 2: My best laid plans of continuing to write a daily report went out the window on Day 19 of Year 2 in the midst of production on Collusions—the first feature film in my slate.  I am proud and pretty damn thrilled to announce that—even though I did not report about it daily—we completed production and Collusions is officially in the can!  I am halfway home. I say halfway because we now move into the editing phase of the process and you know my track record with editing!  But, I am cautiously optimistic this film won’t take as long as High School 911 is still taking.  Which reminds me, as my director of Collusions, Anthony Vietro, begins editing, I will be...
