January 30, 2014 · 7:00 PMPizza and Founder's open house..Our first meetup! Let's have some pizza and get to know one another.
We are a start up group based in Katy (West Houston). We are dedicated to helping Actors and Actresses refine their craft, develop characters, learn, share and get involved in both indie films and community activities.
About two years ago I decided that, before I died, I wanted to accomplish a few things that had nagged at me throughout my years.
I know, I know, the whole bucket list thing has been done to... (forgive me) death. Yet no matter how many times I tried to shake off the thoughts of the road not taken; I found that in the evening hours, my untethered mind would inevitably drift to an unrealized passion. I often awake in the morning with a question on my lips, the ghost of my dreams haunting me. That question is, "What if?"
I am broken in many ways. Flawed beyond belief. I am at an age where my body is surrendering to the many punishing miles I've put on it. My mind is fogged with the loss of friends, family and my pride. I am left humbled by my infirmities, no longer cocksure and full of myself. Despite this, I think that I am the best me I've ever been.
As I adapt to my new definition, hopefully, smarter, wiser (albeit slower moving) I am driven.
And yet there are those dreams...
I've got some stories I'd like to tell. Are they great? Earth shattering? Something new? Probably not. I guess the only thing that makes them different is that they come from me and that I'd like to tell those stories through film.
I have found that, sadly, here in Katy, Texas there is not much of an infrastructure to support my endeavors. So I've decided to create some.
My intentions are to build a space where people who would like to explore their secret yearning. A space for those who ache for an outlet for their creative thoughts and who would like to turn those thoughts into action. A place where people like me may conceive, create, plan and execute a single project or ten from start to finish.
A Space for creative outlet through story telling.
Over the next few months I hope to provide that space. Perhaps I'll be the only one there. If that is the case, so be it. But I will be there. Working toward my goal: 20 shorts and a feature.
Before you once again ignore that tug of interest. Before you surrender to your fears. Ask yourself, why would that nagging feeling be so persistent? Wouldn't you like to have an answer to it? Wouldn't you like to quiet the internal voice that offers up the question that can haunt a person through life. What if?
What if... today you woke up and made a choice that really mattered?
What if... today was the day you started something great?
What if... today was the day you reinvented yourself?
What if... today was the day you found your courage?
Come make the journey with me. It's always more fun to travel with someone.
