I shot "Meet For Coffee" while I was working on another project back in June. It's based off a true story, but the story of putting this short together was also interesting.
This video was so short that I didn't want to have a whole separate shoot day just to put it together, so I planned to shoot it in the afternoon after I had completed Orthorexia. I got a call that morning that the actress whom I had cast was no longer able to make it, so I ended up asking Santeon if she wanted to be in two shorts that day.
Orthorexia is still in post production, and hope to have a viewable version up in the next few months!
It's true what they say: The days are long, but the years are short. In honor of my 10 years of creating original content, I had a screening of my work. I rented a theater, invited some friends, made party favors, and I made sure to get a photo with all of the night's award winners.
The Deck is going to be featured in San Diego's Comic Con this year! I always enjoy seeing something I'm a part of go from its first inception to a fully-formed creation, and getting into something this prestigious is the icing on that cake. If you happen to be going to Comic Con this year, make sure to check it out! Hopefully, we'll be able to show the final product once it's made its way through the festival circuit.
I just finished shooting another short film, and as the kids say, "it was lit!" First, because Chris was our Director of Photography, so he brought a bunch of lighting equipment. Second, because of the awkward size and angles of everything, Chris and I accidentally turned on the stove at least three times.
Hopefully, this video will be edited by the end of July, and I can start submitting it to festivals!
The Super Break Up video is finally online!
This scene is an excerpt from a larger screenplay, The GoGirls, which will feature female, crime fighting superheroes.
I just received a check in the mail for some of the children's books I've published! I honestly was not expecting this to happen for quite some time, and it totally justifies the work I've been putting into the latest book. I don't want to give away too many details, but the book I'm currently working on is another installment of the Slipping Beauty series, featuring some of your favorite characters from the previous two books.
My friend, Veronica, and her husband were able to get me a free seat at NAMM! We mostly took advantage of the seminars being offered, but there was also live music to enjoy, instruments to play, demonstrations, etc.
Other than that, I have all sorts of offers planned for February. Sign up for my email list to be eligible for things like free script coverage, help shooting videos, or to learn more about my new ventures!
The final episode of Let Me Plan Your Life is officially live! In this episode, Taimane wants to be a more public figure in the Polynesian Community. Can he get Samoa name recognition?
Planning the lives lives of my friends has been a really fun experience, and I look forward to the next time I get to do something similar.
