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

Lost in La La Land

I’ve been floating around in La La land, lately. The Boyfriend has been out of town for the last two weeks, I’ve been zoning out of narrative fiction and into the world of film again (as I do several times a year), and I’ve been reevaluating my life and my goals. I realize that New … Continue reading

In Which I Can See the End of the Writing Desert

I am breathing again. It’s been a few months since I have been able to really say that. With buying a house, dealing with shifting friendships, moving, acting, and vacation, I have barely been able to think. Writing has truly been the last thing on my mind. My tweets are down to one or two … Continue reading

In Which I Write a Movie

It’s a short movie. 3 pages, really. But a friend came into town this week and had an idea, only a few days to shoot it, and a will to get it made. So we’re doing it. It’s interesting the way collaboration goes with people you’ve never worked with before. I had a bit of … Continue reading

In Which I Am Roped into Script Frenzy After All

A friend asked me the other day to partner with him for script frenzy, to provide one another with support and advice throughout April. Well, I need some advice now: what the heck am I supposed to write? I have a few ideas, but nothing solid. I know that I would like to go with … Continue reading

In Which I Fall Asleep at My Desk on a Friday

So, it’s Friday. I’m bored at work (as usual). I’m considering jumping into Script Frenzy, in April. I have a few ideas that I’ll need to plot if I’m going to do so, but I think it could be fun. NaNoWriMo was fun and just the sort of challenge I needed. I feel as if … Continue reading

In Which the Velvet Is Tipped

Yes, I am talking about the BBC film adaptation of Sarah Waters’ novel Tipping the Velvet (which isĀ  a slang term for oral sex performed on a girl), the story of Nan Astley, a lesbian in Victorian England. I watched the three part mini series with my boyfriend the other night as part of some … Continue reading

In Which There Are Many Questions

I just watched Julie and Julia, with Meryl Streep and Amy Adams. I have to say, I was very impressed and so happy that a film like that, a film that was probably deemed without a market at first, was able to get the green light. Even more impressive is the fact that the same … Continue reading
