Here we are alas – where we’ve always prayed,
Alive and well, again to see another day!
It’s Summertime here in ol’ Chandler,
the school break is a blur.
The children will be starting school in the month of July;
They just got out at the end of may — oh my how times flies.
Noticing the sun, my compass pointed due North,
I’ve dedicated this Summer to a film festival course.
There’s a Teen Film Organization that I may have mentioned before,
where the children congregate weekly to produce a film festival score.
I am the Program Director and there are decisions that need to be made.
7 have made the established crew, but who will make the film grade?
Each has been casted, some in lead and some supportive roles.
Now they’ve moved into ACTING COACHING – the way we polish up gold.
The Acting Coach sessions are a hit! Children receive so easy,
I pray this is an indication that our film production days will largely be breezy.
No additional drama, other than that, that is scripted in.
This isn’t Hollywood, but to not follow protocol would be a sin.
I’m shaping tomorrows #ReelMinds, and I’ve gotta say, it’s looking pretty good.
The program is proving to be reel sound, not to mention it’s FREE in the Chandler hood.
The program costs nothing and the kids learn the X-Y-Z’s
of how to produce a film by networking in a community.
It’s working and I’m thrilled – Mondays are the days that we meet
to talk about film production, while we socialize and eat.
Today will be no exception. We are going to have a grand time,
we’ll professionally mix and mingle, then “s’mores and bonfire” bind.
We’ll go over the VidBytes that the teen filmmakers have produced so far.
I’ll encourage individually and collectively, for each crew member is a star.
And then I’ll move on to marketing – it’s not easy pushing any project
from it’s pitch to final draft script – an idea that you haven’t shot yet.
However this is the nature of the business and exactly what I do best,
and so I’m off to gain visual exposure, building an audience for ‘what’s next.’
I’m utilizing the classifieds to broadcast auditions and ISO editors with a good grip
to help manifest the teen film project – in exchange for training and an internship.
Social media will play it part, I’ll be posting notices everywhere:
Facebook, Ebay, and Twitter – in filmmaking and love, all is fair.
Then I’m off to do a little traveling – the state of Texas and Kansas are calling.
I’ve been hiding in Arizona’s mountains for a while – I think I’m done with the stalling.
What is life if you don’t travel? It’s boring and lacking networking connections.
I’ll be lugging luggage through airports this week, because networking is my affection.
I’ll return back to Arizona soon enough and the film game will shift into high gear,
and while the weekend was fun “Getting Back To It” is exactly why I’m here.
I really did miss you over the weekend.
There’s nothing like Getting Back To It amongst friends.
Staying focused is KEY and Qui is my name.
It’s my challenge to blend the two as one in the same.
Oh it’s a trick to pull off, but not a bad way to chart your plans,
So I look like ‘the secret,’ every time I stand.
Affirmations start my day. How are you starting yours?
Let me suggest a few quotes for you, to help improve your score:
1. The feeling of love is the highest frequency you can emit.
2. There is a truth deep down inside of you that has been waiting for you to discover it, and that Truth is this: you deserve all good things life has to offer.
3. You get to choose what you want, but you must get clear about what you want.
4. Asking is the first step in the Creative Process, so make it a habit to ask.
5. You must believe that you have received. You must know that what you want is your the moment you ask.
6. In the moment you ask, and believe and know you already have it in the unseen, the entire Universe shifts to bring it into the seen.
7. How it will happen, how the Universe will bring it to you, is not your concern or job. Allow the Universe to do it for you.
This week, move away from your comfort zone,
Once you do, you’ll find that you’re anything but alone.
Being safe is one way to play,
but being too cautious will cause you to miss the day.
You can’t go out to play without your socks and shoes,
if you contemplate too long, it’s the day that you lose.
You’ve got to think about it, and at some point you need to strike.
Prioritize: Getting Back to doing WHAT you really like.
You may have snagged that job out of necessity
but have the times yet changed to what you wanted them to be?
If they have not, and you are still waiting for your life to leave plane,
consider making “RISK TAKER” your new middle name.
Risk taking isn’t only for stock brokers, rich guys or kids in their 20’s.
Risks are for all and the universe offers us plenty.
You want to go for that opportunity? I say take the risk.
You used to be so fearless – we’re Getting Back To It!
Life is short, Live BIG. You deserve it and it’s all ABOUT YOU,
I really did miss you, it’s glad to be back, doing what I do.
