A Good Day Working On the Past, Present And Future!

So got a lot of work done today, which is always a great thing! Right now I'm working on the, "10th Anniversary: 3 Days... 3 Hours... 3 Minutes... 3 Seconds..." special DVD and it's going to be great!

I've been pouring through old footage, stills and so much more. The one thing I'm convinced of more than ever is that I had an amazing cast and crew around me for this film!
I am just blown away, every time I look at
it, see the work and it just takes me back to one of the best film experiences I've ever had.

There is still a lot left to do on this project. We're shooting for a Christmas release, but if we don't make it, then the first part of 2010 the film WILL be available on DVD.

Keep it locked in right here and you'll get the very latest information on the film.

Subtle Changes Are A Coming!

On my way to one of my favorite mobile office's this morning, I wanted to let everyone know that there will be some subtle changes coming to, "The INSIDE Skinny" over the next several days. I'm in the process of tweaking it, just a bit. I hope the new look will keep you locked in and looking!

It's another wet and miserable day here in Silver Spring, the perfect day to hunker down and get some work done and that's exactly what I have to do! I can't keep saying I'm going to knock stuff out, but I have to do it... for real!

Part of the "doing it" is spending some time working on the "3 Days..." DVD that I was hoping to have ready by Christmas. I don't know if that will happen yet, because I'm still working on getting a couple of other elements for the DVD release that I think are important, so keep an eye out here for updates on that.

I also am in that weird place where I know I need to write, want to write, have some ideas to write, but have been in a little funk pushing myself to really sit down and type away. So far this year it's been pretty productive, one feature film complete and then a spec script for a half hour cable show, so all in all not bad. I do have a couple of ideas that I've started to flush out and a couple of more that I have in the back of my mind, I just need to get into that "writers" mode and after battling some elements of a cold over that last couple of weeks, it's been hard to really push myself, but hopefully I will before the year is out. Who knows, maybe I need to just drive 100 miles outside of town, get a hotel and lock myself up just to write!

Anyway, going to get to work now, but thanks for reading... drop a comment from time to time, it would be great to know there are folks out there checking this thing out. lol

A Great Film: Must See TV

Whenever I see something that I think is really great, I like to alert folks to it. I just watched, "JFK: 3 Shots that Changed America," an amazing documentary on the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

I have seen a ton of footage concerning that day in Dallas. I've read the Warren Report and have been interested in the subject for years. This documentary about the incident and the time before and after is amazing.

Watching this film, I realized there is still so much footage I've never seen about that day and what went on in Dallas. You can watch the film on the History Channel and get more information on it at:

Pushing Forward...

Some days are just harder than others... today feels like one of those, but it is early, so I'm hoping things will pick up.

Generally I'm an upbeat person and and looking forward to the days challenges. For me each new day gives you a chance to work on yourself and do a little better than the day before. But every now and then, today being one of them, you just feel like you're in a funk that you can't shake.

I refuse to let it consume me, so I'll have this time this morning to let it run through my system, then later in the day I'm just going to have to put this funk out of it's misery and move on... I have things I want to accomplish in my life and in my career and I have to work a little harder at making those things come to fruition.

So... 60 minutes and counting, then "Funk" you have to go away today!

Out In Public Again

It's been a little while since I've been able to get out and do some work because I've been battling a cold, but today was my first attempt to get out of the house and so far so good. Now if I can only get my computer back up to speed I will be happy.

I had some stupid person at Toshiba tell me I needed to do a full system reboot the other day and since then I've been spending hours trying to get all of my software back up and running. And just in case you were wondering, yes I back up... but right now that is an issue as well because Norton 360's files aren't restoring so I can access pictures or files... stuff that I've saved and backed up for years, so I've been spending hours and hours on the phone with them trying to figure out what the heck is going on and I am a pissed! Can you tell?
