Several months ago I started taking an Intentional Filmmaking class via our Fiscal Sponsor – From the Heart Productions. http://www.fromtheheartproductions.com! Let me just tell you, I was absolutely terrified when I first started. But Carole Dean and Tom Malloy (www.tommalloy.com), did an outstanding job at helping to build my confidence. Their wealth of the film … More MY IMMEDIATE GOALS!
When an award winning producer/director/actor tells me my script, “is good,” well into our 13th year of the project, I can only shout for joy! I actually hit rock bottom after the sudden death of my beloved twin brother, Mike. I was drowning in grief. I am still in shock, but starting to swim a … More WE ARE READY!
One more book cover and the new covers will be complete! The 7th book is about 200 pages already, with another 200-300 to go and that will be, “THE END,” of the series. Woohoo! But not the end of the film or mini series. I am reading the first 6 books again, to make sure … More RELAUNCH!
Wow! There are so many levels to figure skating. Oftentimes, we have to go back to the basics, to add more of the isolated moves that we were not yet ready for – way back when. “Chin up, arch your back, chest over your knees, straight back,”…holy cow!

Although for over a year, I was very happy with the old title and logline, something else happened that showed me, neither had that “WOW” factor. Introducing the new title of the series and logline! The story will still encase the book series, as well … More MAJOR CHANGES!

“I have to keep reminding myself that time isn’t to be measured. It is to be lived.” I have had to take a few weeks off from Summer Ray, due to the busyness of life! So much so, I was freaking out that I wouldn’t have time to get back to the project. But here … More FILLED WITH PURPOSE!
Our next step with the project is to do a, “proof of concept,” video. It is defined as: “A proof of concept short film demonstrates to potential producers the viability of your film idea.
