On the move: NEW YORK DAY 2

On the move: NEW YORK DAY 2

Compared to the shenanigans of my first night here, yesterday seemed very quiet in comparison. Did some research and location scouting in the morning, trying to get the feel of my main character’s environment – the script I’m working on at film school takes place partly on Manhattan. One place I visited was the Strand […]

MERRY CHRISTMAS - AND THANK YOU!

At Hang Dai we ate Polish donuts and drank too much coffee. I got career advice from Dean Haspiel and some nifty Photoshop tricks from […]

Seems the whole charade is just a way to slow down the process of entering the country, as they don’t even keep it on file. A speedy […]
