Good Saturday Morning

Hey guys it is Saturday and I am gracing you with another blog post. Now I think on Saturdays going forward I will be posting my thoughts on certain topics dealing with filming and stuff like that. What do you guys think? Should I? Or should I do some other topics? This is my film related blog spot though. So maybe I will write on topics about films.

 

If you came here via the Facebook link, leave a comment on the facebook. That is unless you have a WordPress account. I would love interaction from all of you.

A Second Blog

So when I was young, like high school, I wrote my first screenplay. The subject of the screenplay was a school, my school, being taken over by terrorists. This was before 9/11, and guess who the hero was? Yep, this dumbass. My problem with that first script was that I used people’s real names. Yes I used my classmates and teachers real names. I had a great story, but I used the real names. Mind you I was in 9th or 10th grade at the time. I even used the name of the school as the setting. I have learned from that experience. I try to fictionalize the settings in my films now. So in my films, I use Golden Cove, Bridge City, or The Burgh as representing Pittsburgh.

So does anyone have any questions for my future videos?

How Did I Start Writing?

As a young adult I started with writing Star Trek fan fiction. Plus I also wrote in Star Trek Text based RPG’s. I loved writing Trek, but I also loved writing in e-feds. An e-fed is a text based Wrestling RPG.  Then as I evolved my writing I started writing screenplays. I wrote my first script in High School. I learned a few ways to correct my errors in the screenplays. You NEVER use real names in screenplays, unless you have written permission to use the names. 

So that is just a snippet of how I started in my writing career.  I will be posting blogs like this once a week. They are scheduled to release every Thursday morning. I will also release other material through the week.
