Drama – Anti-Drama

Action is the dissolution of drama/tension – and if you don’t believe me look at a baseball game. A long fly ball that takes a while to get out of the park, that is dramatic, boring, but since there is time for the home-run to happen and have people unsure if it will get out […]

Education – No really it is a noble profession

Hi, been away, and haven’t posted for a while, and I apologize. It has been a rough year. So just recently I attended the Long Island International Film Expo.

Mistakes happen, but when you start rushing, and getting caught up in the […]
