Life Changes

Door of Fear Movie Poster
Wow.. so much as happened since the last blog entry. I wrote and directed another film, which was a horror called “Door of Fear”. It’s still in the final stages of post production and was shot back in April. It will be released, but had a lot of issues to be dealt with. We shot on the 2.5k Black Magic Cinema Camera, which altered our entire back-end workflow. It should be ready for film festival submissions by Oct. 2013.

Now, the sad updates: My father passed away of cancer in May after a long battle. I was able to return to Texas for a week for the memorial, but was not able to make it back in time to see him alive. The last time I saw my father was 3 years ago. The next month in June, I lost my family to divorce. In August my temporary video contract job ended, so I’m just a full-time filmmaker/actor now. I feel like such a walking tragedy.

With my house slated to be sold soon, I’ve got nothing left in Arizona other than a successful acting career and a large number of new friends. So I’ll be moving to the LA area in November to pursue both my film and acting careers to their fullest potentials. I’m thinking, to help others out, I might like to post regular blog updates about my transition out to LA and post helpful advice and just give my story. Before I leave Arizona, I do want to shoot one last film a romantic comedy short called “Rejection”. I’ve got a good key crew lined up and need to finalize the screenplay and cast for the roles so I can shoot in Oct.

This is just a quick summary update of everything that’s happened this year up to this point. There are tons of things I should be adding here acting wise, but I’ll save that for my new actor’s archive page, as this will become my personal actor site as well.

Shaman’s Skull Rattle. The head of a baby ogre is said to have powerful magic in the underworld. For this reason Orc Shamans have been known to use them from baby ogres who meet an early death. Their pure soul is said to generate powers from the Netherworld as they are still partially attached to that world.

Sword of Truth. There once was a noble knight who found an abandoned sword in a cave. As soon as he appeared from the cave with the sword in hand, he could not lie. The sword worked it’s magic through the one who wielded it and forced them to speak the truth no matter the course. Eventually, the noble knight was fooled into betraying his king through trickery of the courts and because he held the sword when he swore to tell the truth, his wrongful deeds were revealed in detail, banishing the well known hero to death. The King’s Clerics took charge of the sword and keep it hidden within their temple walls these days using it to obtain confessions as needed.
