Hel Unbound- Entry 2, Updates

Last month Hel Unbound entered the first stages of revision! The screenplay is now being brushed up, the dialogue, action, and formatting are all being improved. It's a long and slow process, but the results are beautiful to behold. 

None of my projects has ever been this ambitious in scope before. In the past I've kept close to short films because they were something I knew for a fact I could pull off. The important lesson I'm learning is that you can never and will never get from point A to point B without putting forth the effort and going through the necessary growing pains. 

Last weekend I ordered a copy of Robert Rodriguez's "Rebel Without a Crew" from Amazon. From the get-go I was impressed by this guy's drive, his creativity, and his philosophy. I tell you now, I've read A LOT of books on film and filmmaking over the years, but not a single one was as impressive and immediately helpful as "Rebel Without a Crew." I highly recommend this book for filmmakers of any level and status. Give it a read sometime.

A couple weeks ago a good friend of mine had an idea for a body horror/thriller about a breed of monsters created from the blood we shed when injured. Since she is not the story-writing type, she was gracious enough to let me take the reins of the project and adapt it into a short film. I have since been writing the story on the side, drawing from the works of John Carpenter and David Cronenberg. The project holds the working title, "Haemophobia." 

I'm in for another month full of writing, creating, and movie-watching. Remember to take the time every day to enjoy yourself in some way big or small.
