Result #25: This is actually an ongoing project but I'm considering year one to be a success!!!

#25 Make this site look like a real Blog.

Look at that already incorporating things I'm learning from  Resolution #24  (Okay it's still side by side pictures but I also added a little flair to the text.

Resolution: When I started this blog I meant for it to be a place for me to share my random musing in an attempt to branch out of my comfort zone and write more than just screenplay after screenplay.

I figured it would also be a good way to ease myself into sharing my work. As I said in past resolutions I'm a first draft writer. I write first drafts and then move on to the next project, in hopes that one day I will enter one of these first draft scripts into a contest or something where it will be selected and get the attention to encourage me to revisit past project and release a flood gate of material.

This website was a good enough first draft for what I was up to at the time, but now people are actually looking at it.

I'd better make myself presentable.

This will be an ongoing process that will continue past the due date, but I have to be able to know when to judge whether I pass or fail.

Bear with me as I experiment with the SquareSpace platform that this site is build on as I try and figure it out. I know there maybe better ways to develop a website as of now it works great for my needs.

I'm guessing as I learn more from my free education, get better at Photoshop and find myself entering in more and more code to create features that are not readily available through the SquareSpace I'm sure I'll eventually want to build something from scratch (brand new, not the cat based computer language I've been playing with.)

I can't wait to share my progress!

How you can help: Feel free to email me with any suggestions or if you would like to help out right now I'm doing all this stuff on my own by default. Thanks in advance.

Update #1: The Conclusion.

Date: 1-25-2015

Thanks to SquareSpace it hasn't been all that hard to add features to to help it look professional. I've been continually tweaking things here and there and am very happy with how the blog looks and acts.

Once I get down to California and have more time and am no longer battling the anxiety of moving, I plan to do another site overhaul, which I think I'm going to try to do at least once a year.

I'm sure I'll end up implementing more built in features to make the look even fancier.

Until then I feel I've successfully turned into a professional looking website.

I started out with a goal of becoming a paid screenwriter. I had no interest in any other aspect of filmmaking. I received and scholarship to The Vancouver Film School's Writing for Film and Television program where I graduated in 2005. I fell in love with being on set during my first non-school produced short, . I loved being around all the creative people, seeing people having fun while working. The whole liking your job was a new world to me, so I decided to give it a shot. I volunteered for any project I could, doing what ever was needed. The set was my Film School this time. While working as a PA on a feature I was informed that the DP wanted the three tallest PAs to help out in the grip and electric department. That is when I found the department that felt like the best fit for me while I continued to write.
