listen….

with open arms

they stand ~ waiting

to embrace

your passion

and

your vision.

I can hear their voices

whispering… from afar…

can you hear them?

your dreams are speaking…..

Note: Jordan left for the West Coast yesterday… with a car full of stuff and two friends.  Their final destination is Los Angeles, however, they are stopping along the way to hike in Colorado – Rocky Mountain National Park.  Jordan will be living and working in LA.  He was accepted into the AFI’s (American Film Institute) Summer Internship Program, which will begin June 15th.  Until then, he has a job – working as an assistant on a film set. (The director is an alumnus of Jordan’s school.) & one more thing… since he will be an AFI intern, he will working on this year’s “AFI Lifetime Achievement Award” program which will be nationally televised in June.  Apparently some dude by the name of Steve Martin is the honoree!!  Geez the kid might as well be attending/working the Academy Awards!!  To quote my son ~ “Mom, they are renting me a tux!”

Jordan is the one on the right – going for the Robert De Niro look from the movie “The Deer Hunter”.  The words are all him, as well.

more squirrelly thoughts

the past is finite

the future is infinite

and

the present – it just is……

…….

all in a manner of speaking

inspired by a ‘past’ movie night with my boys – X-Men: Days of Future Past

(ps:  I enjoyed the movie very much, although I did need a chaser of Tylenol afterward.

Thank heavens I have Marvel geeks for sons!!)

Updates from the set:

I woke up this morning to a sweet surprise from my son – an action shot of my boy directing a movie!

One more tidbit – Apparently he has not shaved in 2 weeks – he has named ‘it’ an editing beard.  Humph, he promises a selfie ……..

I just gotta see this …

Oscar

visions and dreams inspired

sweat and sleepless nights

dues must be paid

patiently he stands waiting

Currently the young man is knee-deep in film footage.  He has begun editing his film project for school.  From what I have been told, there is much to do. This is the big one – he conceived the story, wrote the script, casting, directing, lighting, sound, editing…..

I believe my future Scorsese is having a wonderful time.

the movies in my mind

scenes of life keep passing by

as

hours upon hours come and go

people, places and stories may change

but

an audience of one… faithfully remains

“I have to make a movie…”

little man with Lego’s

dreaming his magical stories

bigger man with camera

filming his magical dreams

A future Spielberg?

A future Spielberg?

back in 2008 – leaning against Barney, scouring Entertainment Weekly magazines, with his 6′ Oscar behind him

big camera

2014 – using the grown up ‘stuff’

when Jordan was little, he would say ” I gotta make a movie” and then run away… to his toys and Legos…

NOW

when he goes away to school, he tells his crying mom

“I have to make a movie”

my film guy

Hello my bloggerbuddies!

I hope y’all are having a nice weekend.  I am home with my boys and Sydnee Pee.  It has been a long week of working, driving, cooking (that would be Peyton), working, driving…..and my son – the recent graduate and new member of the working force. This was also his first full week of employment – media technician (one of only two) for Six Flags Amusement Park.

Due to his work schedule and mine, I finally had the opportunity to sit down and watch his video assignments from school.  I must say – yes, I am biased – that he is very talented.  He has an eye and a way of seeing things, matching things – editing.  He had the opportunity this year to take a film editing class at school and was able to work with incredible equipment and editing programs.  It was a really awesome experience and one that I believe will serve him well when he goes away to school in the fall.  {A little background – double majoring in business and movie production – wants to make movies when he is ‘grown up’}.

A few months ago I posted his movie trailer assignment – to make an anti-genre movie trailer.  Take a movie and change the genre of the movie  – such as drama to comedy.

https://words4jp.wordpress.com/2013/02/19/my-movie-man/

SO:

Today I am introducing my son’s music video.  A few items – he began this project back in January and finished it just as school was ending a few weeks ago.  (A little Terrence Malick going on, maybe….).  He has his own film production company intro (recognize the music and the name of his company?).  Also, he recommends watching this in wide-screen.

Without further adieu –

Drumroll

Curtains rise….
