The Web Series Journey – Experiencing the Creative “PROCESS”

1st Assistant Director Daniel Argo and Director Gordon Greene – The Coconut Hut

Why? Why? Why? Well, here’s what I suspect could possibly be the culprit to all this holiday stress nonsense………OURSELVES!! Continue reading “My Approach to a Stress-FREE Holiday”

Why Make a Web Series?

My Hollywood Networking Journey

This topic of conversation is one that I must confess I’ve always struggled
with throughout my own personal Hollywood networking journey. To me,
networking is an art in itself. Some are great at it, and others would
prefer to watch a YouTube video on “How to network in Hollywood and not suck at it” and call it a night (I think I fit right in between both. Lol.) –
just being honest! Continue reading “Does Networking in Hollywood Make You Uncomfortable?”

Hold on to Your “PEACE”

Hold on to your "Peace"How Was Your Day Today?

As I was piecing my thoughts together as to what subject or topic I wanted to write about, it suddenly dawned on me, “Hey, why not ask everyone to do a self-assessment of how their day went”.  In a world full of information overload, junk mails, constant sales calls, sitting in traffic, reading my blogs (ha, ha?), etc., I thought it would be nice to take a moment and reflect on the sort of day I had today.

Approximately four and a half months ago, I joined forces with my Canadian counterparts in shooting a superhero short film titled, XXENOS. This film is about a young man who’s afraid to accept what he fears the most…….his SUPER POWERS! Kapow! Wham! Zlonk! Bam!….Oops wrong show!  Oh, yeah!… As I was saying, this story was brought to me to direct, by my really good Canadian-maple-syrup-on-gluten-free-pancakes-with-Canadian-bacon eating buddies, Howard Green & Marcel Jones.
