I was at a dinner party (wow, that sounds fancy and so “adult”) last night and we were watching a youtube video and I thought of this film that I saw a while ago. It’s an awesome little short film.
It’s a one man show, all of the acting, directing and shooting is done by one person. DIY filmmaking at it’s best!

In honor of the guy who directed what might be my favorite movie of 2012, I reach back for an oldy but goody.
Compliments of the insane guys over at Eclectic Method.
Alright! You just finished the first draft of your script. Now it’s time for the most nerve racking part…
Sending it out.
Every writer should have a group of people that they trust to send their work to. But it’s also important that these people know the difference between good feedback and bad feedback. And when they give you feedback, don’t be afraid to ask them questions about other items that someone else may have mentioned. It’s all part of the process of getting better!
Oh, but don’t forget to celebrate the fact that you finished your first draft!
this is a beautiful story about the awkwardness of puberty and teen sex.
or it could be about something else all together.
either way, prepare for nightmares.
just watched this for the first time and realized that it needed to be shared.
love the art direction and the use of color.
let me know what you think of this insanely original piece of art.
this video is an oldy but goody. i always refer back to it and it never fails to put a smile on my face.
strap in and get ready!
i really enjoy this film. i particularly love the visual storytelling.
it’s definitely one of the cooler films i’ve seen in a while.
now that you’re feeling inspired from the films you watched, it’s time to start writing!
there’s nothing too complicated here, just remember your plot points, pinch’s, and act’s. be sure to create interesting characters, and keep in mind…
the audience doesn’t have to like a character…they just have to want to watch him/her.
your outline is complete!
you’re feeling good and it’s time to start writing…
hold on a sec. now’s the perfect time to watch some flicks for inspiration. most people like to watch films for inspiration before they start the outline, for me, i’d rather get the outline out of my head first.
this way, when you watch films to inspire and motivate you, you’ll be watching those films with your film in mind. this helps me keep my ideas at the forefront, and allows me to mold whatever tone/ideas/inspiration i get from outside sources into something that propels my project forward. in short, this method helps me to stay original so that i’m not just making a carbon copy of another film.
here’s the first look at two for flinching pictures film “The Town That Christmas Forgot”. written and directed by frankie guerrero jr. and starring luke vitale, j. scott, dana bretz, dan czerwonka, raquel startz.
