Summer is over...

And it has been for almost two weeks now. I love my college classes and my high school classes ain't too shabby either. Today during Creative Writing I remembered one of my old stories, a story that I really wanted to write but never finished. And so I dug it up and began it again. So far I have three new words. Oh well, it's a start. Working on getting a playlist down for it to listen to. But I have spare time right now, so I want to write.

Project is temporarily on hold, check back for more announcements on this.

Until I can get it back on track with a full cast, I'll continue working on other projects to start... still trying to get two short film ideas fleshed out.

Nick and Joseph has completed casting. Production begins this weekend... I can't even begin to express how excited I am. Cast is going to be wonderful. For the curious, I'm shooting it on my Sony Handycam with a budget of zip, so it is extremely indie and extremely ultra low budget. If you're on Facebook, become a fan of Rozeboosh Productions

After we finish Nick and Joseph, I'll begin production on a new movie in September with my friends in another production company. Not sure what the movie even is, we're just determined to collaborate.

Next entry should cover the first day of filming. Until then...

New Project

It's entitled With the Fishes and it's a black comedy about two friends and a dead body. Another short film, hopefully shorter than Nick and Joseph ended up. Speaking of which, I've got two of the three roles in N&J cast, and I want to begin shooting as soon as possible. My friend Keagan Karnes is producing.

Project Status

Been quite busy lately with swimming and coaching, but the season is over now. State was marvelous, our team won. And I went a best time in one of my events and didn't do too shabby in the others.

Finished my short film screenplay 'Nick and Joseph' ... hopefully I can film it and edit it and put it on the web within the next month. Hopefully a production journal will be the next entry on this blog!

I have finally returned from Europe. In actuality, I returned like a week ago, but I haven't got around to updating this until now. While in Europe, I was actually able to write a lot, at least while I stayed with the French family. I started two projects, one that had been in my head for a long time and really I just have to sit down and write it, and the other started from a distinct image that I thought of.

One, entitled the Gangster Project for now (because I have no idea what I want to call it), is about a girl who gets kidnapped by a drug cartel and her boyfriend tries to save her... but as with all movies, things are not what they seem and it turns out to be bigger than either of them. It is a feature-length screenplay, and I hope to finish it by the end of summer for production either sometime during the schoolyear or next summer. It is similar to Brick and is also a 'summer' movie, in that it starts out on the huge optimism that every teenager and kid has when the summer starts.

The other project is called "Nick and Joseph," and it is a short film screenplay that I'd like to finish this week and start filming it ASAP. I have three scenes left to write, but they're the three most difficult. That's no excuse though, that's simply another challenge. Neither of these two projects have happy endings, so after I finish them I plan on writing something lighter, or at least with happier endings.

I am also planning on doing "Write a Book With Me" with Holly Lisle, a sort of laidback writer's group to finish the small town project... the real problem with that project is that I need to write the most depressing scene in the novel first, to really understand what my characters are feeling after it. I also have no idea how it starts, because the depressing scene is in like the fourth chapter.

My friend Kara and I are also writing a feature-length screenplay called The Ditch for fun to film at some point, about three kids that find a body in a ditch and get in way over their heads ... Las Cruces provides some great locations for desert chase scenes.

And with all that, and summer reading and swimming and movies coming out and keeping my sanity, I have a very busy summer ahead of me.

Yes, I haven't updated this in a month and a half... but it will continue to be that way, unfortunately. I'm going to Europe [France, Switzerland, and Italy] for about a month. I will return on June 22, hopefully with some writing done and a great knowledge of French.

My Twitter will continue to be updated while I'm away, though.
And my new Tumblr, perhaps.

Until then,
au revoir.
