We just launched the kickstarter for my thesis film Suburban Supernova, a sci-fi coming of age saga of glow in the dark stars, space travels, and high school. I am incredibly excited to make this film, we have a truly spectacular team of artists, and we need your help! Please consider donating, I would be forever appreciative.

It's mind blowing how fast time has gone by watching you grow up. I remember the day you were born like it was yesterday. I remember visiting you in the NICU and holding you for the first time. I remember helping you in car seats, I remember getting on the bus together and sitting with you when you started Kindergarten so you weren't scared or nervous being on the big bus by yourself. I remember how excited you were when you got into the New Visions program this year and you calling me telling me you got accepted into Wilkes, and I'll remember seeing you graduate from New Visions last month and High School today, but what I don't remember is everything that happened in between the first day and the last day. We think time moves slow and life is long, but 11 years ago I was right where you are today and it has gone by so fast that I often wish I could slow things down a bit and enjoy it more, but time slows for no one. You've always impressed me with your work ethic. Always being a part of as much as possible in school, taking extra classes and doing what you could to get ahead all while playing golf and working one sometimes two jobs. Far from my mindset when I was in high school. You did it right. If I could go back, I would want to follow in your footsteps. I'm so proud of how far you've come, but I'm even more excited to see where you'll go, because I know the work ethic is only going to grow and you're going to keep doing things right. The way I wish I had done things when I was young and fresh out of school. This is only the end of one chapter and the beginning of another for you. We are complete opposites in so many ways, but one thing we can both agree on is that when YOU put your mind to something, you run with it and don't stop until you've accomplished when you set out for. If there's one thing I know it's that you're going to go far. You've made me one proud big brother and I wish you nothing but the best this Fall and in the future. Love ya, Michael. 👨🎓🎓📚🐘👨💼👏👏👍

🌈🔷The Last Thing We Said To Our Brothers and Sisters 🔶🌎 “My dudes, me and my brethren would like to say to every one of you, for the last time, goodbye, and we love you. After four years of growth, experience, times good and bad, and a journey none of us will ever forget, we hope you never forget each other, because we will never forget you. This was such a beautiful and amazing time in my life I couldn’t explain properly how passionately I feel for all of you. Our journey is complete, the end of the road has been reached, and it is my brothers honor and mine to say to you, again, one last time
We love you” Congratulations my friends, we did it, and we Graduated High School. From who I was four years ago and who I am now is so profoundly more mature, extroverted, aware, prideful, sociable, physically able, friendly, and comfortable with who I am. I have changed so much, and so have all of you. You all shaped me in some way into who I am today, being raised in this exquisite and complex ecosystem of personalities and unforgettable experience, I can say wholeheartedly I seriously love every single one of you, and not just the people in these pictures, I mean the most legendary class Bacon Academy has seen. That class is ours, the Class of 2018. We went through war and celebration, we saw the darkest and the brightest, and we became all the better for it, together, side by side. No more social food chain anymore, just respect, appreciation, and love for the variety between us. Our future is bright my friends, hopefully I will see you all on that other side. I would say don’t fly to close to the sun, but a dragon’s wings do not melt. For my last saying to my entire senior class as a whole, I give you this. Have a good day, my dudes. 💛🐉💙 #highschool#graduation#classof2018#haveanicelife#L
It’s a #sad day for me this afternoon. They’re finally moving forward with a #freddiemercury biopic. I want to get my version out of my system before it eats me up inside. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always wanted to bring Freddie’s life on to the big screen. I was going to start off the film with a young Farrokh Bulsara (Freddie’s real name) escaping Africa during the Zanzibar revolution (wartime). He ends up in London during the Beatles British invasion craze and is bitten by the music bug. From there we meet #brianmay and #rogertaylor departing from smile. Desperately in need for a new front man, Mr. Fahrenheit makes an appearance! The fun begins as #queen is formed! Along the way Freddie meets a girl named #maryaustin . The love grows as the band begins to struggle. Cut to the #killerqueen music video. The band changes through the years and Freddie begins to explore his sexuality. The film from here on out is an orgy of fun, comedy, studio fights, and amazing music. But in 1987 something happens to Freddie. Suddenly this loud charismatic figure begins to become quiet and more reserved. We all know what has happened. He continues to make music until we reach 1991. There’s so much more but, that’s my version in a nutshell. Good luck to @ramimalek and @bryanjaysinger Freddie means so much to many people. His example makes us reach for the best. Not just to become average, but to become a #champion (name of the film). #screenwriting#filmmaking#highschool 🏳️🌈 #ocpride2018#gaypride#gayprideparade#ocpride2018#gay#lgbt#ocpride#slyandthefamilystone 🎸 #queentour1981 🏳️🌈 #ocpride2018#gaypride#gayprideparade#ocpride2018#gay#lgbt#freddiemercury#queen
