Result #54: I can't believe I failed to eat chicken... I still need to get my book back or buy a new one in order to make this happen.

#54 This is the year I stop talking about it and finally build a dinosaur.

Date: 2-23-2014

Due Date: 2-23-2015

Resolution: I discovered this book when I was working at Amazon.com back in 1997, I bought this book maybe three years ago, I reference this book in maybe three of my screenplays, I reference this book whenever I get the chance to joke about it, I have yet to even make an attempt to use this book to build a dinosaur.

I figured since the last couple resolutions were to finish projects in books that I've owned for years without even opening I'd keep the theme going. I'm not going to go so far as to complete every project in this book, but with in the year I will be the proud owner of a chicken bone dinosaur.

Update #1: The Conclusion.

Date: 2-26-2015

As I pointed out in my last failure, and had a real hard time staying motivated once I decided to move. Rather than keep track of upcoming due dates and being proactive, like I was at the beginning of this experiment, I only had the mental energy to focus on what was due on a day to day basis.

I figured that I would need maybe a month to get through the chicken, clean the bones and begin to piece together my dinosaur made of chicken bones. 

Unfortunately due to the reasons I pointed out up above, I forgot all about this projects due date until the beginning of this week. I also forgot to get the How to.... book back from my friend before the movie.

So here I am with another failure.

This is another resolution that I'm not going to give up on. I just heard back from my friend and the book will soon be on it's way. I'm going to start scarfing down chicken to build a dinosaur the moment the book lands in the mail.

As always, I'll keep you posted.

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.
