That's a wrap!

• “That's a wrap!”

There is nothing more exciting than a film wrapping! We shot our final scene on this past Tuesday for 'All in the Course'. I suppose I have to dream up a poster for it now. I have crayons, so that shouldn't be too hard. I really loved the experience working with a professional crew and cast on this project. Now it is edit time! The process of getting all the shots cut down and aligned to where they have to be. Maybe even placed in an order which makes sense. Either way, the fun is about to begin for me. Editing is my least favorite part, but it is important to understand. When I work with editors in the future, I want to be able to speak their language.

All in the Course was definitely an undertaking, in a good way. I learned a lot of prep, budgeting, organizing, who I want to work with for my next project, and even how to establish locations. Making a film is one thing, getting it made is another. My first short film was 'A Super Hero Villain', which was about 10 minutes long and took around a full day to film. Seven hours or so to get everything. This project was easily five days of filming, locations all over the place, fight scenes, speaking, and we had three cameras. Yeah, three cameras. Talk about getting the shot you want.

I have another project coming up, untitled so far. We started preproduction already. It will be a web series and completely a huge project for me. I know I have a team ready and willing to make this an exciting time for us. Oh the fun of filming. I'll be directing, acting, writing, and producing again. However, I am bringing on other directors and writers to help take on the load. If I can get through this process I know I can do anything. Working with 'TEAM RISE TOGETHER' and showing studios what we can do on our own is going to help change the game. You want to act, act... write, write... direct, go and direct.

Make things happen by making things happen. Anything is possible if you keep moving forward.

Radio, TV for my Grandpa

• “Radio, TV for my Grandpa”

Got a radio show. Okay, thanks for reading. Check back for more news and a lot of stuff is happening!

I hate blogs like that. Where's the panache? I mean, give the audience something to read about. So, I like to bring up the subject matter in my first paragraph. When the audience is able to jump right into my subject then boom! Radio! I got a radio, internet. It was nice getting this opportunity! Radio is a great way to be heard, but more important it is a nice place to let others be heard. All steps must lead to the upstairs. Well, you could go downstairs but I mean, I have leaks down there. See, now I can move onto some other things, like how I feel about, or my thoughts on the idea.

If there is one thing I enjoy, it is being able to talk about anything, but with direction, to people willing to learn, listen, enjoy. More importantly; Be entertained, Educated, and have a sense of Edification while on the journey of Thomas Talk. Also, this world is much better when people get to help others have a voice. While I will be on each week, guests and other people are going to have my door open for them. A voice must be heard, but about what? I want people to laugh, while learning about the business of life / entertainment / other crap. More so I want the journey of successful people to be understood.

Hmm, this is where I normally express what I learned from the experience. I'll go on about how it added or took away from my life, and how I will grow from it. This will be my forth internet radio show, and about my thousandth time on radio airwaves. So, the experience is fairly familiar. This time around I look to have a lot more fun doing it, and I'll be ready for anything. I really hope I can bring a sense of change to the community when speaking. That is important to me. I want to change the game. I want to let people know there are other ways around making things happen. We, as people, must become the light of inspiration!

Also, the studio is in Dumbo, Brooklyn. I mean, come on! Dumbo.

Produce Results

• “Produce Results”

There are people waiting around hoping for something to happen. How much would really come from it? I would rather bet my calculated chances on a risk than wait around hoping to be discovered. Life is too short to wait it out. I am a go getter. I have been asked what got me where I am, how did I make so much from so little. Hard work? Nah, hard work is too much work for me. Why push yourself beyond your limits!? I hear this turn a lot; hard work got them to the top. Hard work made them the best! I don't believe in hard work. Hard work is the stock boy packing out seven boats a night only to be told he could do more or better.

I work productively. Consistent, with direction, towards completing my S.M.A.R.T. Goals. It is that simple. Okay, not so simple that I do and I succeed. Wait, yes it is. I write down what needs to be completed, and I do that thing. It's not about hard work, it is about consistently being productive. Work Smarter, not harder. I have faith in my method. And so do my clients, that's why I teach them what I do. Everything I have worked productively towards is consistently causing doors to open in all my fields. “Everything you do must affect everything.” I live strongly to this coded ideal, this way of life. I am always working to rise.

When I meet people who work harder, or try and raise the stakes, raise the game, I think “Why not just change the game which works best for you?”. We all learn differently. We all have strengths and weakness in life. As we learn how the game works we adapted and improvise to succeed. My whole life was filled with failures in the minds of others. To me, I have never failed. They were opportunities to succeed and grow in life. I have acting, comedy, writing, consulting, producing, and even more on the horizon, that make all my dreams a reality! There is a method to my madness and it will continue to Produce Results.

Become your action, become the living action to your dreams!
