The 100 Hour Film Race and the Top Twenty

Back in December, I participated with a group of friends in a film competition called the 100 Hour Film race. We called ourselves the Pixelsmyth Workshop, a production company/ freelance network that is currently in the works. The gist of the race is, you have to make a film in 100 hours. You are given … Continue reading

2012 In Review

Well, I may be a few days late to the game but here I am! Reviewing my 2012 and setting up my goals for 2013. It’s been a hard couple of years. Family drama, personal drama, moving several times have all made it difficult to find my focus and really get close to my projects. … Continue reading

Musicals, Rewrites, Hipsters, Oh My!

Surprise, or, I Like Emma Stone

Really, I do. I was shocked. I watched Easy A with my family (I know, right?) and I laughed. And I…well, I didn’t cry, but there were some touching moments. I even enjoyed the token sensitive hot guy. The mash-up of romantic moments from 80’s teen movies at the end definitely made me smile. I … Continue reading

Flash Fiction: Up, Up, and Away

I am probably going to die. Flying, flying, flying. Death wish. I have a death wish. Do I? Yes. No. I spread my fingers wide and reach for the bar, sliding my fingers around it and holding tight as it rockets me forward. I grip the bar and laugh in relief. I cry, though no … Continue reading
