If anyone else can tell me exactly what I mean by that, I hope they'll let me know. I would have to assume they, too, work in the biz.
I spent much of May promoting our film "Banks of the Vltava" at screenings throughout North and South Carolina. It's always a pleasure to screen for a fresh audience and hear the new perspectives different audience members share. Thanks to all of the hard-working cast & crew, and all of our supporters! We do have more screenings coming up, and we can't wait to share with more folks.
May and June were a flurry of activity. I had the pleasure of acting in a few local commercials and industrial films. I particularly had a great time working on the program It's Supernatural. I'm thankful for the opportunities! Although acting is a side-bar for me, I find every opportunity to be on set a great learning experience.
I had the pleasure of working with Old Post Films for the summer. This was an awesome experience! I had the chance to see helicopters, explosions and gunfire up close and personal. I hope people will support the show, because it's great.
Graduate school started for me on June 21st. I am at Hollins University pursuing an MFA in Screenwriting. For the program, I am writing beyond the mid-point (60+) pages of a well-structured script; a couple of story ideas for pitching purposes; and a 30-minute television pilot. (Well, and a few hundred pages of reading on theory.)
While I've been pecking out those pages, I've also just completed a very strong rewrite of the script for Ocean Drive. I'm so excited about this script! It's a great story (by co-writer Brad Yoder), and I have completely fallen in love with the characters and the whole idea of shag dancing. We'd love to see this film shooting soon!
So, for those of you whose eyeballs are wandering across these words-- Thank you for all your support! I will do my darnedest to update more often. (And I hope you'll check out the links in this post to show your support for the projects.)
