On location, Lancaster, CA, Cold, early and miles from anywhere, having the time of my life…

A story should have a beginning, a middle and an end… but not necessarily in that order.
- Jean-Luc Godard

Well, thats one way of looking at it, but before the story there is the idea, and a beginning.

Pick up a camera. Shoot something. No matter how small, no matter how cheesy, no matter whether your friends and your sister star in it. Put your name on it as director. Now you’re a director. Everything after that you’re just negotiating your budget and your fee. - Director James Cameron

“If we, citizens, do not support our artists, then we sacrifice our imagination on the altar of crude reality and we end up believing in nothing and having worthless dreams.” 

― Yann Martel, Life of Pi 

Here here!! 

Of course Yann Martel is a writer, a brilliant one, and not a filmmaker, but he is an artist, and so are we!

“Even if I set out to make a film about a fillet of sole, it would be about me.”
Federico Fellini 

Ain’t that the truth!!

As artists we all need to find our voice.

Your reason for creating.

Your ‘why’

In some cases, such as mine, it can take half a lifetime to find, but once you have found it, it’s hard to ignore.
