I am very excited and feel extremely grateful for having Rocco as my mentor/teacher. We shot my first short film last week and it was an awesome experience. I have to say last week was kind of a blur because I literally did not get any real sleep but it was worth it. I had a chance to experience what it is like to write, produce and direct a film. Rocco really taught me how to make this dream a reality and I learned how to shoot with the camera, direct, script feed, produce, lighting, different angle shots and etc. It was long days and multiple cuts but the crew hung in there as if we were building something we new would be great once complete. I really enjoyed the whole experience and I can’t wait to do it again. The process of editing and sequencing my movie starts next week and I am anxious in anticipation of a completed production. The name of the movie is Plugged In and you can see some behind the scenes footage on my face book page Za Jones or YouTube screenwriter39. Please check it out and share it with others.
