Something Real Status Report

The other night I attended a mixer for Reel Women of Austin, an organization which supports and mentors women filmmakers. I told them about my project and there seemed to be a lot of interest. I got some good information, a lead for a venue and some potential films to consider. It’s really amazing what people are up to in the world. One of the filmmakers is doing a feature on the rise of feminine energy and universal shift predicted by the Mayans.

I’m really concerned about the venue. Originally, I had thought of doing it at the Alamo because it is my favorite theater, but, upon further reflection, I decided on the Regal Arbor Cinema. That’s really the go to place for independent film. So I put in a call today, but the manager was out until Monday.

Then I need to write up a request for submissions, something I don’t have any experience doing. I also need to consider putting up a web site of some kind.

If I stop to think about what I’m trying to do, I get overwhelmed and afraid. So I guess I won’t think about it and just do the next thing that needs to get done.

    Sometimes the best way to get things done is to act like an ant carrying bread crumbs.

    I like to make lists and then feel accomplished when I can check things off. However, my lists usually include things like: finish reading manga, watch that stack of DVDs, or bake cookies. (I’m so accomplished!)

    This sounds tremendously exciting, and it’s not a bad thing that it’s pushing your boundaries. I’m eager to hear about it as it moves along.

Got something to say? Go for it!
