Heidi K.

Today I went with my production designer (Heidi Koleto) to the location in gardena, where we are filming. We found out a lot of good things to do as far as visual story telling. Now this will no longer be a student film.


Champ is going to be my editor for this project. I will be helping, but for the most part hes going to do some great stuff. Ive seen a few things that he is capable of and its the SHIT. so expect something crazy for this project. I now have about a $1000-$2000 or more production being done for free. Gets my balls so wet.

Also today... we have a new president, we sat and watched it in class.
Not as good as his acceptance speech, but still got inspired. plus yo-yo ma killed it!

Chapter 2 vs. creative writing


So i am still finalizing pre-production on this project and its going well. I have a good production designer on board and some good hands in this project. Im going to the location tomorrow to finalize some blocking and what not. were shooting this weekend on sunday. Email me if you would like to be an extra in it. jonryan@stilllifephotograhy.net

If my creative writing teacher stays on the track that she is on right now, i am going to vote her one of the best teachers. She keeps my attention every time and shows some good meaning behind certain films. 

Also this film is going to be great:
