my movie man

Every year, when Oscar season comes knocking on the door, I start thinking about what I might wear—— someday.  I realize I may be jumping the gun quite a bit, but I figure it is never too early to plan.  Right?  I have already nailed down my date, so the only thing left to secure is the wardrobe.  BUT, there is one teensy problem, well a little bigger than teensy – the specific year, the movie and, of course, there is that small detail, most notably – the nomination.   Hey!!  All in good time!

My son Jordan, the aspiring movie director, has been mentioned in many a blog written by me, his dutiful mom, of whom he assures he will be taking to his first Oscar ceremony.   I have been told that I am and will be his first choice of accompaniment.  I realize that I should get this in writing, notarized and, yes, get an attorney’s approval.   No worries, I will.

Jordan graduates high school in a few months and will head off to college where he will be majoring in movie production and business.  I cannot wait to see what he creates and where his imagination and dreams will take him.  He may be out of sight – away from my watchful eyes, but I will be forever his biggest fan and supporter.

So without further ado, and a little help from a fellow blogger (and awesome poet),  I have attached Jordan’s media assignment from last semester.  The criteria – take a film trailer, change the genre, thus in turn creating a different trailer.  He chose the comedy Fun with Dick and Jane – the one which starred Jim Carrey and Tea Leoni – and morphed it into a drama.  He added different music, different effects, edited the film; rearranged the entire piece.  I have attached both trailers below. #1 is the comedy, #2 is the drama.  Enjoy!

#1  THE COMEDY

#2  THE DRAMA

COMING SOON:  An assignment involving a music video.  This is the only information I have been given 🙂

the box office is open


My world is a stage.
My life is a play.
I am only one of many characters,
performing under lights and from the wings.


I am the director, composer,
choreographer, stage hand - 
but mostly, I am the playwright 
whose talents create the spoken words;
the story for all to see.


My plays vary in genre,
there is not one that I prefer,
however, it is the tragic drama
that has been headlining - 
this particular theater's playbill.


Ask anyone who knows me, 
I can create so much more - 
a comedy, a mystery,
a hoofer's musical galore!



But no matter what the script reveals,
the performances are sincere,
with a cast full of talent - 
who will make you laugh or shed a tear.


If the urge for culture should tempt you,
there is an evening performance tonight at 8,
the 'director' refuses to hold the curtain, 
so,
you had better not be late!

1986 - Backstage with wig & make up.  Costume - not yet.

Let me entertain you………..
