Greetings, folx! I know, I know — it’s been forever. I’ve been going through an egregious writer’s block since…2016? Suffice to say, long-form posts have just been a no-go. Rather than continuing to hate myself for not even trying anymore, I decided to allow myself the freedom of shorter form writing. I have also missed … More I Created a Newsletter!
Alright, look. Making movies is haaaaard. I know this first hand. Whether it’s film 1 or 100, every movie brings challenges unique to its production.

Something’s happened to my personal YouTube consumption…namely that I don’t do it anymore. I’m still subscribed to about thirty or so channels.
