It’s been a while since I’ve made a post. I’ve updated my website to accommodate not only my blog posts but also my jewelry and more I plan on selling. My main goal in making and selling jewelry is to raise money to shoot one of my short films. I’ve tried crowdfunding several times and raised zero dollars, so I’m trying something new.
I’ve always had a desire to make jewelry for a while now, and although I’ve played around with it, I never really made anything worth mentioning until now. I even took up a four-day jewelry making class at the local college.
Right now, I’m making and selling the basic types of jewelry as well as t-shirts with a design I borrowed from online but put my own little spin on it. Eventually, I Read more
What I wish to do is take one of my full length films and condense it down into a short film so I can produce the film to enter into film competitions.
When I first tried to raise the funds, the amount was way too high; however, my second crowdfunding campaign still did not receive donations.
What I need is roughly $7,500 to get this film produced. What I can offer in return is major advertisement, and WHEN I sell the full length version of the film titled, “Sometimes Love” I will in return give you 5% of what it sells for. So, even if it sells for 1 million, you Read more
I’m outlining another masterpiece that I suppose to finish by the end of March, but basically just starting. It’s another story that has been singing in my head for close to a year, and it’s time to get serious. I am a big time procrastinator but once I start…
It’s another high-concept comedy, and absolutely no hints will be given. All I can say, it’ll probably be controversial. I’m still waiting to receive my latest script, “All Circuits Busy”, so Read more
WOW, is all I can say. No, it isn’t. I posted on Stage32.com’s forum a few days ago, searching for someone to analyze my five (5)-page screenplay short, “Love Appeal”. An experienced Horror Director/Writer (Shane W.) offered to analyze it free of charge.
This is what he had to say, “Hi Dawn, Read through the screenplay. It’s a pretty unique story, not something done to my knowledge, and the quasi-silent film feel is an interesting touch. It has a nice feel to it, and it’s a good story.”
He gave me a couple of recommendations on how Read more
WOW, it has been a long time since I’ve made a post. As you read from the title, I have yet to make it as a Screenwriter. Have I felt like throwing my hands up like I normally do and say F*ck it, yes, several times.
I’ve sent out close to one-hundred and fifty query letters in reference to my screenplay “Sometimes Love’, and received one response. He requested my synopsis, and advised me the story wouldn’t work for a Producer/Director he had in mind, so in my opinion, it wasn’t all bad.
I’ve decided to move on to another screenplay Read more
It’s been a while since I’ve made a post. Still nothing from either two of my celebrities I attempted to stalk, but it’s all good. They have people I need to go through, and I somewhat understand that.
So far, I’ve emailed out about fifty query letters in search of representation from either an agent or manager. I did hear from a few people directing me to their website to fill out a survey of some sort, and I heard from someone who requested a synopsis of my script. I sent it to him, and he responded hours later and said, “Thank you for the synopsis but this won’t work for the producer I had in mind”. I thanked him for his time, and advised him if he changes his mind, I’m still in need of an agent. It has only been about a week since I emailed the letters, so I’m patient, and I’m going to email a bit more this weekend. Read more
So after three days of stalking Common and Tika Sumpter, I finally tapped out. I’m still not giving up, but I’ve decided to concentrate on searching for me a reputable agent, and continue with trying to finish my second screenplay, “TORN”. I’m just as excited about this one as I am, “SOMETIMES LOVE”. I already have a general idea who I would like to play in this one too.
No, I have not given up with pursuing Common and Tika, but I have to do it the right way. As I said before, I cannot picture anyone else playing these roles for Sometimes Love, except Common and Tika, and I have not really thought about the worst-case scenario. However, I’m moving my focus to obtaining representation. Wish me luck!
COMMON & TIKA ALL I ASK OF YOU IS TO READ THE FIRST 10-15 PAGES
First, I would like to thank Vince, owner of dURDy Work Multi-Media Graphics for designing my movie poster, he did one hell of a job, and I am so glad I stumbled upon him. He also designed my website header, so be sure to check him out; magnificent work and reasonable prices.
Second, I want to thank my cousin Sherry, owner of Sherry Designs for creating the trailer for me as well. She did an excellent job with putting it all together… so THANKS FOR BOTH OF YOU!
If you’re visiting this page, then I hope you are as excited as I am, and you’ve contributed with PERSUADING these two celebrities. I’ve been working on this script since 2010, and I’ve always envisioned the two of them steaming up the silver screen; two beautiful people.
