Film Festivals

Alright...so I'm finally finised with my movie. I'm at a point where I could let somebody watch it and not have to explain why this part is messed up or this part still needs to be fixed. You get my drift. I had my first screening last week and got good feedback. People really seemed to like the film. And at first I took the compliments lightly because you never know who's feeding you the b.s. But I heard good things from credible sources. I'm having another screening tomorrow.

I also submitted it for its first film festival today. I dropped it off for the Slamdance Film Festival. Not to be confused with Sundance but it goes on at the same time. We'll see. There are soooo many festivals it's crazy. They even have a Southern Fried Chcken Film Festival. lol. Yeah I know but I bet you I submit for it.

Anyway. 2006 is coming to an end pretty soon and then it's gonna be time to get ya hustle on for 2007. Don't wait until Jan to start planning your work and working your plan. Get on it now. That's what I'm doing. Not that you care...well you must care 'cause you're reading my blog. And if you're doing that...you must care.

Okay, the J has spoken and the J is out!!!!!

It's time to get back on track. Re-focus the energies. Get back on the grind. I think you should always set dates and goals to achieve. That way, you have something to work towards. If you're just in a daily routine and going through the motions, that final goal will never be reached. You gotta keep working and striving to get where you want to be. A wise man once said "show me a satisfied man, and I'll show you a failure" I don't know how wise he was, or who he was...(techincally it could have been a she) but it has a little truth to it. My piano teacher used to always tell me " don't rest on your laruels. You shouldn't be so satisfied with what one you've already achieved that you make no further effort. She would tell me this after I won a piano competition. "Don't rest on your laruels". Translation, okay you won...not get back on the grind.

The grind. What is that? What are your goals? What do you want to achieve? Whatever it or they are, geterdone is what they say.

My father's 70th birthday was this past weekend. 70 years old and he's still cool as a fan. Love you pop. And in the words of my pops

'the good is out'
