Thus, my identity is silly curious Creative Explorer. Join up.'

PURPOSE: Always Improve in a Competitive World and Make Great Film.


So who am I? And why should you care?

I am a Producer-Writer-Director-Novelist-Martial Artist. How's that for a hyphenate. have always worked in film, notably as a Line Producer on all the "Taken" films. I directed two Indie films guerilla style and a web series .I've written novels and over fifty scripts with a third "Hired to Write" or optioned. I've done martial arts most of my life and this path is my steady course for self-improvement always needed in film's highly competitive environment.

My website's was originally to create an orderly list of available Filmmaking Knowledge. Now to Enlighten Filmmakers, Writers, Creators so they can evolve in their Art thru their Freedom of Expression. Ideas, Technology, links to film and writing techniques plus my own insights. You can take the Free Course on the AFM Seminar on budgeting.

Did you know that if you improve 1/2% each day, then you will be 267% better over one year? Who can compete with that?
