Digital Inheritance

Digital is scary. Dead are the days of DVD and CD. You probably already noticed that. Our up and coming generation will never have that tangible experience, like you and I did once in our life time. And that’s the sad truth.

That sense of ownership is gone. It seems companies are going this route really fast. Taking things away from you — convincing you to trust them. My point.  Are we left with anything to pass on? Will my children inherit the digital music, movies, and softwares I’ve acquired? Should my Apple ID and password (along with other credentials) be part of my will? What will happen to these companies 50 years from now and my stuff invested in them.  As I ask myself this, I’ve come to realize that we have a humongous digital responsibility.

Weekly Update for September 26, 2014

Weekly

I’ve been doing some daily blogging and sharing through Google+. I feel really comfortable with this platform. In fact, I will test it out for a while.  You may ask why not just use your personal domain to blog?  That make sense.  But I’m a bit picky. There so much awesome content to share, I don’t think they belong here. I think my work, thoughts, and progression with projects do (music, web series,  scripts and other ideas) . So more of that coming soon.

The content I’m about to share are amazing findings and work from other people I follow. When you circle me in Google+ (the updates also go straight to Twitter), you’ll find just that and more. This here, are the meat and potatoes.

So here’s the update. Read more

What’s a Showrunner?

It’s the person (producer and writer) who has overall creative authority and management responsibility of a television program.

Pretty much the head honcho of a TV show. Overseeing the writing and production of their TV creation.  Maybe they direct an episode or two. But what’s more important to them is the big picture — the season.

Writing Movies

Start with a screenplay.Does anybody know how to write? No? Good. Everyone else writes the same way. Start writing your way. That makes you unique. You can take writing classes. That’s Good. But don’t bother  going to film school, or you’ll be writing like every one else. – Robert Rodriguez

Learn how to make a movie in less than 10 minutes. Simple as that.  If you’re creative, become technical. Write a movie your way, grab a camera, and shoot something. Make mistakes. Repeat. And start showing it off. Your style is art expression. Regardless of what people say. It’s so subjective, it’s not even funny. Of course, there are standards. But when you’re learning, who cares about standards. Just make it happen.

Note to self: It’s been a while since I made a film. Time to get with the program here.
