    @h-jones Nice to meet you, I am looking at a career in media or acting but I would love to have a job as a photographer or director. I don’t know yet though, I am hoping that God will bring some clarity to that. I would really want to decide what is best for my family when the time comes.

    Photography is a great hobby, but an expensive one if you…[Read more]

    Hello again @storyjoy, If you want a good book about acting my class is using a book called “The Actor in You” by Robert Benedetti. It is an expensive book (around $70-100) but it really does a good job of explaining acting, and helping understand the function of an actor. If you don’t it is really not a big deal, just watch a lot of plays and…[Read more]

    @emgc Yes I love music and I quite enjoy singing, but I am not great at any instrument that I have ever picked up, except maybe a hand drum… as long as I don’t start singing… As far as genres go, I am a big fan of rock, and hip hop, with a little bit of christian rap and folk mixed in. Perhaps I will find you in a guild, @emgc, I have just…[Read more]

    Hey @storyjoy I am currently studying media and theatre at university, so I could recommend a few places if you would like to go to university to study theatre. I would definitely say that you should continue to make those short films with your friends, and get involved in local theatre productions, they are really great for getting you…[Read more]

    Yep, @cindy, and I are old friends. I have to say though, I forget how old we were when we first met, but that almost seems like forever and a day ago. One might even say “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…” (I don’t need a citation for that one.) I will agree with Cindy though, it would be best if we did not mention those old stories…[Read more]

    Hello @dekreel, I am an INFP-A or the mediator type according to the Myers-Briggs test. Being multitalented is great but it makes it really hard to explain to people what exactly you like to do… “Oh yes, the one thing that I enjoy doing most is video editing, reading, photography sewing… oh and one more thing….” I would not change it for a…[Read more]

    Hello @emgc,

    Pardon how long I took to respond. As far as genres go I am not certain what genre is my favorite to write in, but I do like including bits of history and culture in my stories. I also quite like to make a statement about the current state of politics and humanity etc. as I feel that it is important to raise awareness for these…[Read more]

  • Hey guys, I am thinking of a character for a movie, I was wondering what you guys think of byronic heroes? I am always curious to use tried and true convetions in new ways. I was thinking of breaking a few convetions of the byronic hero. For an example, the idea that they have to be evil and that they had to have started as a good character (Darth…[Read more]
