SPONTANEOUS WRITERS RETREAT!!


I am going on a week long vacation, a place to turn everything OFF and find a quiet happy place to write. So I RANDOMLY chose a state to go to, I am staying in the mountains of Colorado! I have a few things planned in the week for exploring Denver, but the rest is all WRITING, WRITING, WRITING until I finish my treatment! #filmmaking

Finished My Synopsis and Outline! Don Reviewing My Work!

PROGRESS!! Finished up my Synopsis and Outline! Here I am waiting to hear Don Bluth's thoughts on my story. He is reading my work, making notes on grammar, punctuation and overall story. He said it's good and I'm ready for the next step! The Treatment!

He said usually a Treatment is about 10 pages, I have a feeling I am going to go waaaay over that. lol

I've been also making Storyboarding panels. When I see an idea in my head, I have no choice but to draw it out! As many of you artists know that feeling. :) #filmmaking #challengeaccepted

My mentor Don Bluth has given me a challenge! (Read Below)

GUESS WHAT!! My mentor Don Bluth has given me a challenge! A challenge that he will oversee, to write my own live-action film. Which starts with a Synopsis, then an Outline, to a Treatment and finally the completed Script! (I will be storyboarding the whole thing too!)

He has given me a few of his favorite books to read on the subjects to help. This is going to be very exciting! I have written short stories, and cartoons pitches in the past, but nothing this HUGE! Wish me luck! #challengeaccepted #filmmaking

Little Bird Flying - Pencil Test

 Here is a pencil test of a Little Bird in flight. I think it looks a bit off, almost as if he is going backwards or fighting the wind. I will keep at it!

 Added 9 fish to this pencil test for a short I was working on. (canceled) Still need to make the fish bite down on the rope. I was trying to get the timing of them coming in just right.
