Jonathan and Saul are joined by Juan Pancho as they talk about what goes bump in the night.
I stand by there is nothing better in this world than a good book. I just finished reading The Autobiography of James T. Kirk. It was such an incredible read. I finished the whole book in a single day. I couldn't put it down, I didn't want to.
The writer is clearly a fan of Star Trek, paying tribute to the Original series, Enterprise and the first six movies. It expands on Kirk's back story, from Kirk's own point of view. If you love Kirk, and I mean the William Shatner Kirk not the new one. This book is pure gold. Well there was one part that I didn't like if I am to be honest, and I don't see why I should lie. When the book gets to the fifth movie they make it seem as if an alien species who they visited early on turned them into a movie about breaking into the center of the galaxy and finding God. I know not a lot of people love the fifth movie but I do. Truth be told it is one of my favorites and I didn't care for how the writer pretended it didn't happen.
Besides that the book is the perfect read for fans of Star Trek. Go and read it!
I'll never understand how some people don't like to read. There is nothing in this world like sitting down to a good book. The inspiration that can steam forth is as useful as any movie or TV and helps you as a film maker, in my opinion, more than other forms of entertainment because you are forced to create what the world looks like in your own mind.
What I find far more embarrassing to admit being inspired by is my own scripts. I can't help but feel it is a tad arrogant to be a huge fan of your own work, but it is safe to say I am. I can't wait to finish writing this season of Crusaders so that we can start to record them. Good times await us in the new year!
This was a project made by a classmate named Mike Miller. He worked with us on The Misadventures of Miss Courier, doing the effects. Our very own VP, Ashley Leal, was the lead actress in this project, while I helped out with lighting.
So this year is coming to a close, real fast. Not to sound like a downer but the past two years have been really hard. It seems like one thing after another has been going wrong. So going into this New Year I have one goal above the rest. Make it a good year. Get work done and bring Blueroof Productions on the map, but also have fun with friends. Live my life the way I want to live it and not get pulled down so much by other people and what goes on around me.
Life is hard and it is short. So why waste time feeling bad about yourself? Feeling bad about what is happening around you? There is no point to it. You have to look at the bad stuff around you, nod your head and move forward.
When I first started out writing I would just write until I felt a story was finished. No outline, no worry about structure. As I got older and started reading more how to guides and taking classes I was told over and over that outlines were a must. Somehow writing became less fun, more of a chore. I'm debating if I should go back to free form and toss outlines out. I mean even when I free form I have a loose idea of where I am headed with the story, just not how to get there beat by beat.
Stephen King of all people says he doesn't work with an outline. Quentin Tarantino says he only figures his stories out to the middle before starting on his journey. It will be interesting to see what the results are for me as I jump back to this model. Wish me luck Blueroof Nation.
