Hey guys! Because I am moving to Los Angeles in October, I have been reading as much as I can on Screenwriting. I have learned so much and have applied it to writing “Prefer Not To Say” with Jordan Wapner. I have recently started reading “SCREENPLAY” by Syd Field. This is a really insightful book for any aspiring screenwriter out there. I highly recommend you check it out. It’s amazing how much structure a screenplay really has and this book teaches you exactly how to do it.
Does anybody know where 2011 went? It feels like this past year flew by so quickly!! I can proudly say that 2011 was a great year for me. I have worked on more projects in 2011 than any other previous year! In 2011, I edited a commercial that aired on Haitian National Television, I worked on a major Music Video set with Birdman, LiL Wayne, & Nicki Minaj, I Directed a Music Video that might be coming to MTV in 2012, & much more!! Things are picking up slowly but surely! 2012 is going to be a year of hustling, creating, goal-making, and of course success! I’m going to keep doing what I do and pushing harder and harder to make big things happen this coming year!! It’s time for me to get to the next level and that’s my main focus right now! With that being said, I hope everyone has a Happy New Years!!! Be safe!!

“Joey Quits” is an amazing viral video on youtube! Basically this guy Joey has worked at the Providence Renaissance hotel for 3 1/2 years and they treated him poorly so one day he decides to go out with a bang. He brought an orchestra band into the employee area of the hotel and told his boss he quit as the band plays their music behind him! You gotta check it out, it’s hilarious and probably something a lot of us wish we could do!
This is the official trailer for The Hangover Part II. It looks really funny. It’s almost identical to the original hangover except this time they go to Thailand for Stu’s wedding and of course it’s a hell of an adventure! The Hangover Part II will be released in theaters on May 26, 2011.
Hollywood, CA is the entertainment capital of the world! It has the biggest market for film, television, and music! It is also home to the worlds largest film studios! This is where I need to move to! Don’t get me wrong, I love living in Miami! All of my friends are down here and we’re all like a huge family, I love the lifestyle down here, I love partying down here, and I love the different cultures and art that miami has to offer. However, I feel like my career is going absolutely nowhere down here! As a filmmaker I don’t get enough work whether it be freelance or working as crew on a set. I’ll do a music video and then nothing else will come along for a few months or a year and then another one will come up. I’m constantly looking on mandy.com and craigslist.com for film jobs and there’s just not enough going on down here. On mandy.com currently there is 2 film jobs in the entire state of Florida and 86 film jobs in the LA area! It’s definitely time for a change! I need to jump start my career and I feel like the only way to do this is to move out to Los Angeles where there are tons of crew positions available all of the time. I know it’s not going to be easy out there either but at least it will be a little more accessible! I’m already kinda planning my move. I decided that I am going to move out there in 1 1/2 - 2 years! That should give me enough time to save up some money and eliminate some bills! I’ve already started looking at apartments online and I’m currently trying to pick which area I wanna live in. So far it’s looking like Van Nuys is a safe bet. Supposedly it’s only about 15mins outside of LA and it’s nearby to all of the major studios! I’m extremely excited for this! I’ve worked so hard over the years and haven’t really gotten too far in my career yet! I truly believe LA is where its at for me and it will definitely do wonders for my career! For the next 2 years I really gotta stop going out as much and save a lot of money! I really need to eliminate and some of my bills because living in LA is not cheap! Although, I did find some decent prices, just not sure what the area they are located in is like! I plan on making a trip out to LA sometime by the end of this year to go neighborhood and apartment hunting! I’m really happy I finally decided to start planning this out because now I have something to work towards! I’m really excited to get my career off of the ground! “Entourage” is about to become my reality in the next few years!
“:Prefer Not To Say” is a short comedic film about the trials and tribulations of online dating and how three roommates use it to their advantage. Tonight we have finally completed the first draft of the screenplay! My co-writer Jordan Wapner and I came up with the idea to write a film about online dating in June of 2010. We immediately began writing the script in July once we had perfected our basic idea. I must say so far I’m really happy with what we have written. I truly believe that this is genius comedy here. I’m super excited for this project and I really believe that this is going to be a hilarious film when it’s finished! It has taken us 6 months to write this script but I enjoyed every minute of it! It will only be more fun from here on! As always, I’ll keep everyone posted with the progress of this film!
