The Muse

January 10th sparked a whole new direction for me, and it would have never happened if it wasn’t for Nash.

I’ve been struggling for months to come up with a horror story to film and release on Youtube, just for the exposure. I can tell you what makes a horror movie suck without difficulty, but for some reason I have trouble writing my own. Nash and I began to talk about documentaries, and that was when she suggested that I try to do one of my own.

When she mentioned the idea, I could almost feel the thick fog surrounding my brain begin to dissipate as I warmed to the idea. We talked about subjects that interested me, what I was capable of, and what documentaries I liked and didn’t like. After some extreme prodding, Nash began to make me believe that I could film a documentary. She had already seen the possibility; it just took her a while to convince me.

Nash is very much my Muse. The next day, she came up with the name for the production company, urged me to buy the domain, to create the logo, and to buy business cards. By the 12th, I had everything in place, and the business cards were on the way. I had also researched contacted my first subjects to be included in the documentary. By the 16th, I met them at a Glendale Border’s book store, and we were off filming that night.

It was an incredible experience. The documentary has to do with the paranormal, and it seems I picked the perfect group on the very first try. I have since gone out with them on case #2 this past Saturday the 23rd, with the one and only Methodofmac as my fellow cameraman! Between us, we got some incredible footage! This Saturday I will be meeting the group once again for on-camera interviews, and another case.

Thank you, Nash. I owe you big time.
