I was just attached to be a regular on a comedic (presently untitled) series written and directed by independent filmmaker Sathya Vijayendran, Producer at Grand Illusion Productions, based in New York. We are scheduled to begin shooting the Pilot and second episode in Spring 2014! I can't say too much right now, but the premise is great, and has very dry humor. More info forthcoming!
Congratulations to my friend, writer/director Antonio Tibaldi) and his production company, No Permits Produktions) for his film Godka Cirka (A Hole in the Sky) (In Somali, with English subtitles), for being an Official Selection in the Shorts Competition (Documentary) at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival! Way to go, Antonio!
Congrats also go out to Sameerah Luqmaan-Harris for the narrative The Bravest, The Boldest, another Sundance 2014 Official Selection in which she stars. Also part of the Shorts Competition (Narrative). I caught part of this - it's amazing, and so is Sameerah in this!
If you'll be out in Park City, click the titles for screening times!
"Our doubts are traitors
And make us lose the good we oft might win
By fearing attempt."
William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure, I.iv.
Much easier said than done, but do not fear the unknown. Manipulating the doubt might yield a most treasured gift.
“And your doubt can become a good quality if you train it. It must become knowing, it must become criticism. Ask it, whenever it wants to spoil something for you, why something is ugly, demand proofs from it, test it, and you will find it perhaps bewildered and embarrassed, perhaps also protesting. But don't give in, insist on arguments, and act in this way, attentive and persistent, every single time, and the day will come when, instead of being a destroyer, it will become one of your best workers--perhaps the most intelligent of all the ones that are building your life.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke (Letters to a Young Poet)
