2011: New Year, New Opportunities

Hey Everybody,

Happy New Year! 2010 was an eventful year for me, full of accomplishments and a bunch of challenges as well. I am so happy and proud that I got four of my short screenplays produced, including my first self-directed effort “Zombies Take The Schoolyard”. “Heart Says It All” was directed by Emmy Award Winning director David Eagle and I am pleased to say it looks like we will work together on another project in 2011. “Hours Before” was successful at getting into some great film festivals, mainly due to the celebrity of director Joel David Moore (co-star of “Avatar”.) Even “Zombies Take The Schoolyard” got into several cool fests, from Hollywood’s SHOCKFEST to Washington D.C.’s Spooky Movie Independent Horror Film Festival, so I can honestly say my first short film screened coast-to-coast! It was awesome to have my short screenplay “Truth or Die” translated into Swedish, “Sanning Eller Död”, and directed by Tom Grejs. One of my biggest successes of last year was winning 1st Place in the screenplay competition at the Colorado Film Festival with my feature script, “My Dirty Secrets”. That story also finaled in a few other notable contests so it’s nice to get a little recognition. Even my newest feature screenplay “The McSatans” got into the finals round of a few competitions, so that’s something to be proud of. My goal for this year is to go from being un-repped and unemployed to being a working writer, that is, a writer who actually gets paid to write. 2011 is going to be even better than 2010 and I’m not giving up. I hope you all have a happy and prosperous New Year and thanks for taking the time to read this.
