As we take a concept from the mind and onto paper and then translate it into film sometimes the end result wasn’t what you originally imagined. Don’t let that make you angry. Just go back to the drawing board and try again. Or refine the final concept and refine it again and again until it becomes the envisioned result.
Many times and very often in creative fields, our ideas, can and are seen by others as genius, irrational, irrelevant, unpopular, superpopular, accept, despised, loved, highly creative. Now the things is what if you made your creations based upon the approval of others or waited until the group could finally see the dynamic image you saw. can you iamge how disaterous films would be. Can you image Apple if Steve Jobs wasn’t adamant about the design and functionality of an American product.
On another note and some will get mad but by not taking the time to get better and improve on your product or idea, you leave people hanging. Hanging by a lot depending on how much they wanted to like or believe in your product or idea. Either way, don’t stop believing and make things happen in spite of circumstances. Love you all.
So as we approach the mid way point of 2015 I said to myself, hmmmmmmm. What have I learned this year. How can I keep learning and expanding my mind to gain new concepts. Then the thought popped into my head to listen to music that I don’t normally listen too. Go places I don’t normally go and listen to things or opinions that differ from that of my own. By staying centered while doing all of this it has really helped change my awareness of the world we live in as well as whats possible for us to achieve. So if you are involved in the creative arts or just a regular person that doddles from time to time. Try listening to some different music, walk new ways to school wear your hair or clothes differently. But at the end of the day stay centered so that you remain true to yourself and you. Make it a wonderful day.
So Trois Like It Hot finally uploaded to the Amazon Prime store…so woooo hoooooooo. I think we’re going to make a part 2 to the film…a sequel….we shall see probably shooting sometime in the fall of 2015……but for now….just a reminder to all to check out this quarky short film about three females who are fed up with men and start killing them.
So here it is yes, finally finished the film…..yayyyyy…the poster for the film can use some work, but sometimes simple is smart. Sometimes weird is different. Well here’s the basic premise of the film…..some security guards run into daily troubles while securing the perimeter of a building…this film was made to see how this story would look on film and what not…..there’s more coming from this story but not pulling all my hats out of the bag as yet…as any good card player never does…..but for now..enjoy this short film…clip….and thanks again all who actually came thru and made this happen.
Aaron did a wonderful job on set and was pretty creative with his wordplay and coming up with conversation on the spot. I thought he did an outstanding job. Aaron also works as a stand-up comic in addition to acting. We know we’ll see him on the big screen. A.J. is pretty funny, if you have ever worked security you always have that one guy who takes his job way to serious, A.J. is that guy.
Amanda was a sweetheart to work with. Her and Aaron made great partners and were truly a dynamic duo. Amanda was the A.J.’s partner in the film. If you ever noticed someone who is always doing too much on the job or taking things really serious? They usually have a partner who supports and backs them up in whatever they do. So Amanda held her own and backed up A.J. Amanda was very manageable as well.
Armond was great to work with…Armond brought Marcus to life. Sometimes…I thought to myself is this Marcus or Armond..he just naturally did stuff that Marcus would do..great personality…and forgiving…as we started kind of late after a few setbacks…but the show must go on. Armond was Marcus the guy who’s lazy and doesn’t really do much. Many of us know people like this on any job from IT to bodybuilding….so check Armond’s bio here.
Gemma played Janet in Southside Security Patrol. Gemma was pretty funny and the lines that she came up with in this unscripted comedy was pretty funny. Gemma brought Janet to life and stood her own as well as partnered well with Marcus…..but on any job just like the hard working person has an ally the lazy person has the same ally. Janet and Marcus like to hang out and hardwork is a foreign concept to them. Gemma was very easy to work with and she was very Coachable as well. Thanks again. Gemma. Here’s a link to Gemma’s profile:
Dandre was and is a very talented actor. Dandre was supposed to be a member of the cast but things changed last minute and Dandre was chosen as the villain. So it worked really well…and he quickly switched roles from being apart of the group to being a villain. Dandre was a very formidable villain for the guards of Southside Security Patrol…so I guess you’ll have to check it out to see what happened. Thanks again Dandre for being so flexible. You can check out Dandre’s contacts here.
This was a great mini video that I found online that dealt with the importance of storytelling. Sometimes I think its funny to break away from the traditional and avant garde methods of storytelling. Well enjoy.
