WOW. I am super excited about this week ahead. Life is good. I am shedding the distractions out of my life and becoming much more focused. So I am looking to the week ahead and sharing plans with you. I think you should plan out your week. It gives you a map. My problem has always been staying on that map. But much is changing with me and in good ways. I went to see a dance performance yesterday and it had a profound effect on me. It reminded me what I was like before 2003. In 03 my injury from the military came back and I was unable to work. I had to fight the VA and pretty much lost my mind and forgot who I was. I remember yesterday what I was like and what my life was like, and I want that life back.
So this week here is what is going to be happening: I need to finish the Alternative ending to a short film I am producing and acting in called Dumb Saints. I know I haven’t mentioned this film before but I will share it with you all soon. I need to finish the by book Girls Like Us by Rachel Lloyd and then knock out about 2 more books for research for my feature. Rachel’s book has been a great source of information of sex trafficking in America and tells of her own experience. If you care about the issue of sex trafficking you should seriously read it. I am half way done with it and it has opened my eyes even more than they were. I have to finish up a blog post I have for this blog on Florida film incentives and the Koch brothers. Those assholes. I got the Screenwriters Bible by David Trotter to read. It is a large book to read, that will probably will two weeks. I also want to knock out a screenplay. I am going to start reading screenplays on a regular basis.
I also need to see what steps I need to take to get the film society up and running. I am looking for a lawyer who would like to volunteer their services so that we can create a 501 c3 non-profit organization. We also will be looking for donors to help us start the society. I really feel strongly about having a film society here in Tampa. Something that becomes a cultural treasure in this great city.
