Haiku love

February 24, 2017
Lots has been happening, mostly good.
Worked on a feature film (drama, action) as 1st AC, 1st unit.
Working on my application for the AFI DWW program (more on that in a later post, that will hopefully be more frequent from now on).
The short Stuck in the Middle I directed, won another award for Best Lead Actor in a Short Film!!
And, I started writing again. I absolutely fell in love with the haiku.

Here's one I love and wrote for the Women's March on Washington. Yes, I was there, because I believe in equal rights for ALL.

People are People
No Matter Who, When, Where, Why
We are All Equal


Cross your fingers for me for the application. I'll post some snippets of it later.
