So, as some of you didn't knew or didn't know, I wanna become a filmmaker. Filmmakers, when screenwriting, have to shorten their scripts--cut things out--unfortunately; I love this scene. However, fortunately for you, I can show you this cut scene I've written, a conversation between 3 gangbangers. I will post one more, with the other 2 pages that didn't fit. Hope you enjoy, and get a taste of how I write. I have to make CLEAR--I do NOT WRITE GHETTO-- I only did for this scene, for they are black-ghetto gangbangers. But anyway, hope you like it. Feedback would be great.
Introducing the screenwriter: Jonathan Hernandez is an Arizona native- making moves, creating theater, and telling stories since 1987. In Arizona he trained with 'Firebirds'; a performance group specializing in myth and rituals of the Medieval Religious stage through the scope of Native American performance practices. The performance art company 'Theater In My Basement' is where he created his original work, such as 'The Brink of Insanity', and 'The Lydia Project'. In 2013, he moved to Portland, Oregon where he began collaborating with some incredible artists. From working on the theaters of Portland like Profile, Oregon Children's, and Milagro; to working in a televised live studio audience with Portland Community Media. From working on independent "skeleton crew" films to NBC's Grimm - Jonathan has experienced it all. "I'm passionate about story telling and human emotion. Right now I have so many things I want to say and it just so happens that writing is the artistic medium I'll be using to tell my tales."
On the last week on June, I had a nightmare of an experience doing a survival job. Still steaming about it over dinner with my girlfriend that evening, I told her I might have an idea for the next thing I shoot. Here we are, in the third week of September, and these are the results:
7 Shooting Days.
2 Person Crew.
1 Birdman Take.
4 Fake Local Business Created.
100 Flyers Handed Out.
On our very-last take, and you cannot make this shit up, I had to defuse a real-world situation by slipping and angry doorman a twenty.
That’s a wrap on #Flyering . We shot for the moon and ended up leaping over it. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to everyone involved for their support. We had an MVP crew of TWO, @zigonkevin and @sandraherlog. They performed the jobs of at least 20 crew members and kept us on-schedule and on-point. The cast carried equipment during company movies, built sets in-between scenes, and gave me all their heart and guts. People graciously opened up their homes and studios to us. Thank you to my beautiful and patient and selfless girlfriend, @hseusy, for housing all of our shit and keeping me sane through this whole process and being the best Birdman-take scene partner any director could ask for. And thank you to @kevinlosani, a one-man wrecking crew of a DP who is an extraordinary artist and friend, whose expertise and heart brought this thing to a million-dollar production level. We went into this thing as pals, and we came out brothers.
There isn’t much more a storyteller can ask for than to write a thing that the people in your corner come in droves to rally around. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
If you have an idea, get it on paper, and just shoot the fucking thing. Don’t talk about it. Just do it. I will tell you, there is no better high.
Onto post-production. Stay tuned. #TakeTheFlyer
This account is great. Working on some script edits right now and love being reminded of the fact that one day (🤞🤞) an actor will bring it to life and make it even better than it is on the page. ・・・

Good morning, writers! Today is the birthday of Donald Hall (1928-2018), American poet, teacher, and former Poet Laureate of the U.S. He wrote across genres and was also well-regarded for his children's literature, essays, biography, and books on the craft of writing.
Another shot from the @dogdaisiesband music vid. Ste being pulled by a river monster. There was some contention with a local ranger who asked to see a licence before realising our friend @zacbarfoot was just pulling the line at the other end whilst I filmed. Clearly non of us knew anything about actually fishing. 🙈🤫🐟
To the couple I love the most ❤️ Taking the reference of a couple that started dating in the 90s seems absurb because how can we millennials treat love as they did. But according to me, somethings never change.
The essence of a relationship remains the same. The only things that change is how we value it.
What we fail to realise in the present time is that there are some essential check boxes that need to be ticked for a healthy and worth while relationship.
1. Respect : It's so crucial to respect your partner at all times. Even when you disagree with each other. Understand that they are an individual of an own mind and heart and are completely valid to have things their certain way or think a certain way. Discuss the differences not argue them out. Support comes with respect.
2. Understanding: If we can understand our best friends so well, why do we fail to understand our partners? Even in times when you fail to see their perspective, it's important to try. Even if you fail there atleast make them know you still there by their side. Understanding comes with working together and noticing little details about each other (very regular patterns in their behaviour) which have a huge impact in the future.
3. Trust: If you don't trust your mate, what's the whole point of being in the relationship? Trust eliminates feelings like jealousy and possessiveness which are just additional baggage to the relationship. Know that controlling each other won't make the other honest. It's an individual choice.
4. Have fun: Why so serious? Make fun of each other and laugh over stupid things. Have your little inside jokes and just have fun else what's the whole point of being together if you'll ain't happy with each other?
So when you doubting where you'll stand in your relationship, check the ticks of your check boxes 🤗🤗 .
Disclaimer: This is my small effort to bring out a major issue through a form of an act. Please excuse me if I couldn't do justice to the role:) Nobody understands what depression really feels like cause the only way to know is by being depressed yourself.
It's not a phase or a mood swing. It's soooooo much more than just a word.
Have you ever been in a state where your mind isn't willing to listen to you and just goes on overthinking the worse of worse scenarios in your head such that anxiety, stress, fear, anger, sadness all have a hell of a party inside your brain.
You are screaming and telling yourself to calm down but the mind is like a separate entity.
You love dark rooms and depressing things cause it couldn't define your state of mind better.
Some play their roles really well by having a constant smile on their face.
Why fake that smile right?
If they opened up would you understand?
Maybe not...rather fake it till they make it.
It is a medical issue which needs to be catered to. Definitely the ones who don't understand what it is can't really help or so you think. But to be honest, you can. Showing love and affection to them and always listening to them. Not giving them stupid advices like think of happy things or it's just a phase it will go. What if it wasn't a phase and the only person they felt they could confide in seemed so insensitive? That person being you? When you can help why not help. What's so difficult in doing good for someone and maybe saving a life.
For the ones going through depression, know that you can always always take help cause it isn't a bad thing. If people are gonna call you mad, they are so themselves cause we need to move on from such conservative thoughts and acknowledge such major issues which are pulling us into the eternal Pit of darkness.
Change starts from us if we wanna make it!
