Hey guys! My name is Mark Kamibaya and I’m a filmmaker/storyteller. I’ve always loved stories but especially those in the form of film. However, I have been writing short stories for as long as I can remember. Glad to join this forumOctober 11, 2018 at 12:02 am #52419Ariel Ashira@ashira
@mark-kamibaya Hi, I am Ariel. Welcome to SE!
Neat. What genre do you like to write? Can I ask how old you are?

@mark-kamibaya Welcome to Story Embers, Mark! Where do you hail from? I live in the mountainous beauty of Idaho. 🙂 How did you find S.E.? What kinds of writing/filmmaking do you do?

@selah-chelyah @ashira I enjoy writing in the genre of “realistic fiction.” It’s fiction that best reflects occurrences of day to day life. However, I enjoy stories in just about any genre. I found Story Embers after I found out that Kingdom Pen shut down or something like that. And jysk I’m from South Carolina and I’m 19 years old. What type of stories do ya’ll write?October 11, 2018 at 10:52 am #52463
@mark-kamibaya A film maker? That’s so cool! Are you working on any major film projects right now?

@mark-kamibaya, cool! I write mostly historical fiction. Do you have any favorite authors?

Hi, and welcome… Even though I only joined yesterday. Realistic fiction I don’t know that I have heard that as a genre before but I know exactly what you mean. I write historical fiction because it’s about our past and story and that is such a huge part of who we are. Plus I just love history. Are you going to college for film making???

Hey! I’m Millennium here with my dragon.
Looks at Moondust as he walks out.
Or was here with him.
Anyway, My Favorite genres are Si-Fi and Fantasy. So, you like filmmaking? I’ve put together a few fun things with iMovie, but that’s all.
So, what are your hobbies, fav movies, books, stuff like that?October 12, 2018 at 4:12 pm #52653
@the-fledgling-artist @samantha-pen I’m currently studying film at a Christian university so I have a lot of school-related film projects. For one, I’m assistant director for a senior film (the film that decides whether or not a senior can graduate). And I’m shooting a film project on 16mm film (like the not digital kind) in a couple days. It’s pretty exciting stuff.
@selah-chelyah I enjoy historical fiction. Usually in film form, but I’ve read a few historical fiction novels. As far as authors go, the first non-screenwriter author that comes to mind is Ernest Hemingway.
@millennium-m I just really like film honestly. I like more grounded, realistic films . . . but I still enjoy fantasy and sci-fi. I did have a sci-fi novel that I was writing in high-school. The second draft was like 500 pages long and could’ve been longer . . . that’s when I realized my talents were better used in film than prose.October 12, 2018 at 6:02 pm #52665Ariel Ashira@ashira
@mark-kamibaya I write primarily historical fiction. I love history! Realistic fiction is awesome, too! Have you ever been published?

@mark-kamibaya Wow! So cool! ! I bet that’s a lot of work, but it just sounds so neat!

Welcome, Mark! 😀 Glad to have you! Really neat that you’re into film—my brothers are too, so I know a bit. I actually want to end up being an animator or a video game designer, but for now I’m just sticking to writing. xD What’s your favorite movie?

@h-jones You want to be an animator?? That’s so cool! <3 If you’re serious about animation I know of a couple super helpful tutorials on Youtube for learning how to animate. :3 Both are kind of long, but they helped me quit a bit.

@the-fledgling-artist Indeed. 🙂 Sadly I don’t have much time to invest in it since there are a whole lotta other things going on, but I would love to hear about the videos! Thank you! 😀

@h-jones Oh that’s too bad. I hope you’re able to find some time for it eventually.
Here are the videos I mentioned.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48pwrr4gPOA (This one is 25 minutes and is a tutorial for animating in a free art program called Krita. 🙂 )
