6) multi-camera work and anythinig related
7) artist`s work to make a picture perfect! with no surplus stuff

Right now, since I have no idea how to get into the business...well, learning about it...Im just messing around with my friends. Right now Im "remaking" The Birds, but with potatoes. Hah, I thought it was clever.

Anyway, I hope to learn something from you guys!

Not yet..
I am not an alumni of the esteemed Maine Workshop's 4 week film school, but I hope to be soon. I'm in a mid-way point of my career and after recently finishing a master's in journalism I'm hoping to attend the program and re-align my career direction.

I look forward to reading over the the posts and any advice for someone who is going to attend would be appreciated.

The Turnip cries for Blood....
The hot beef injection was too much for the vegetarian to take. The syringe filled with boiled dead cows blood coarsed thru his veins as he screamed RUTABAYGA! RUTABAYGA! at the top of his lungs. It was amazing he was held down so long since he was dressed as a giant turnip. The Anti Vegan Society, a secret paramilitary black section of the government which took pride in turning these pansies back into men, had been scoping him out while he paraded himself in front of the Annual Carnivore Lovers parade, doing cartwheels and passing out turnip treats to the kids all week long. They had seen him arguing in front of butcher shops in loud tones until he was chased down the street by the butcher with a meat cleaver. They'd seen him kick men eating shishkebabs and slapping asians for eating dogkebobs. This menace had to be stopped, if the parade was to be sucessful and the eventual plan to bring blood lust to humankind a reality. They found him inside a supermarket dancing with another of his ilk, a woman dressed as a giant Carrot doing the twist to a crowd of awed spectators, who just wanted to get their lettuce and leave but these two whackos were in the way and so they had to watch them twist for three minutes while the muzak tweaked speakers blared out Chubby Checker inside the supermarktet.Suddenly they grabbed The Turnip and pulled him off to the back of the market in the butchers section and tied him down. "You will never eat a vegetable again freak" one of the agents dressed in black said, while pushing in his ear piece.Agent #2 got the cows blood ready,cooking it up under a ladle with a match and pulling it into the syringe. "No way," screamed the turnip," I love Ruttabaga,RUTTABAGA!". But it was all in vain and in his veins, the blood is delight no Mr. Renfield, The Turnips eyes turned red and his incisors grew, they released the harnesses holding him and he turned to one side and expelled all the vegetables he had in his system. He hunched over the best he could for a man dressed in a Turnip costume, and began breathing heavily, his nails grew long and he went into fits saying "I want some mooooooore....... "

Friends, Filmmakers, Countrymen...
So, if you're getting up and rolling here, an easy way to keep track is to add eachother to your friends lists. That way, when you look at your "friends" page, it will show you all the journal entries each of us has made recently.

Since I'm leading this effort, I would love to hear from you about what you're doing and thinking about since you got home. I realize that "Vegetating" is the most likely answer, but, once you come out of the coma, mutual encouragement will help get our asses in gear.

I'm abou t to join the Maine Film and Video Association, and feel a lot better about it now that I can show that I've actually done something.

The Party's Over...
Or is it just beginning? Back home? Feeling wierd yet? I woke up saturday night to go to the bathroom and I had no idea where I was. Took me a full minute to get re-adjusted. The change in pace alone is enough to get a girl's head all freaky-deaky.

I'm already back at work and it feels like I'm underwater. The news is downright bizarre and life had the temerity to go on while we were all busy getting dizzy. Hmph. The nerve.

Hi everyone!

Yes. You are home now. It's all over. Time to get down to business.

So, READ THE FAQ! Especially the one about communities. It will help you to navigate. This is actually one of the cooler, more excellent places on the web, and may be of considerable benefit to you even without this particular board, so post away at will, as well as list eachother on your friends page as you join, that way, we will all be kept mutually apprised of our fables and foibles.
