Writings: Moving into Films

Loading Image... From Errol Flynn to DreamsVcom


          Moving into Films: From Errol Flynn to DreamsVcom, is exactly what I have described in the above title -"A personal journey about the making of Bad Blood". Bad Blood is the movie I intend to make, and this is a journal about my personal experiences on trying to make this dream of mine a reality.

          "Moving into films" is a dream shared by many. Indeed so many, that we may call it a collective yearning which nevertheless remains distictively personal. I believe this is so because films are "an art" and all the arts exist in the realm of individual creativity. As a result, while filmmaking is a collective artform, the germinal vision for a film begins with a single individual.

          Perhaps like yourself, I have that vision too. I have learned from the experiences of others who also share the dream, about the trails and tribulations that await along the journey. Many never reach the end. But with the realization that others have begun the journey, and with the certain knowledge that others have at journey's end realized their dreams, I have been inspired onward to begin my own.

          This journal is the telling of my recollected experiences along the road. My intention in writing these personal entries is that you may learn something useful from my journey that may help you get closer to the end of your own. It is also my sincere hope that, if one feels so disposed, you write and share with me the things that make your journey worthwhile -fore I need encouragement too.

          This journal is far from finished. I will continue to add additional entries as events develop. I hope you come back to visit. Till such a time, may fortune smile upon us and make our dreams become a film. Cheers.
