TwentySomething: A Story of Jade

For the longest time I went back and forth about when I would allow myself to begin my film career. That I would do A,B, & C first, THEN I would come back to it. That I would allow myself to build a name doing something else and then turn back around to film and directing later. (Build a name doing what? I know. lol.) Over the past year a series of things began to happen to me which ultimately began to make me work on myself and the script on what I plan to be my first feature film. TwentySomething is a film loosely based on these experiences. Moving From Los Angeles to Houston, then Houston back home to Flint. Being depressed, trying to find a purpose, and not wanting to just… exist. I always wanted to feel as if I was chasing something bigger than myself and the idea of working just a regular nine to five then just dying horrified me.

TwentySomething is a story of a female named Jade, who returns home after going for broke in New York City. Her relationship with her family is now weird, her city is different than she remembered, and her grandmother has now passed away. Through out the movie (or script) you see her struggle with accepting the fact that she is back home, not wanting to be there but not knowing how it is that she will “Make it back out.” There are characters and perspectives that anybody from a small city can relate to, not just Flint, and yes the Water Crisis is mentioned. I gave it a background role to show how when the crisis started that people lives did not just stop, they had to continue living.

The script is now available on Amazon, Createspace, and Amazon Kindle. It’s four dollars. I hope that if you found the time to read this that it piques your interest enough to purchase the script and tell me what you think. Thank you.

Open 24 Hours – Crooks (Acoustic) [Music]

I’ve been on a good music kick lately, and what I’ve com to learn is, good music has no genre. The band below (Open 24 Hours) is a band From Michigan (I’ll add something more specific as I learn more about them, I just stumbled upon them. lol) I really love this song for some reason, and this was the first song I ever heard from them so they really made a good impression. They are dropping a project on Black Friday titled “Wasting Time” and I’ll be sure to post it up here so those interested can hear it. Check out the song below:

Dj Lits & Josh Holleman Arrogance Ft. Justin Daye [Music]

I can’t think of anything to ┬ásay about this song without being overly corny. lol. It has a dubstep feel to it, and if you’re only into hip hop now’s the chance to expand into other genres of music. I would love to shoot a video to this just because its different. lol. Enjoy & s/o to Justin Daye of course.
