Said has returned to his Blog!

It has really been a long time since we’ve spoken, hasn’t it? Much to talk about. Both the Roman Emperor project and the Ethiopian Project is coming along well. The treatment has been written for both, each coming in at about 15 pages. I rarely write a treatment, I usually just write the screenplay. Its weird I know, but when I write, I hear the voices talking in my head, I see the images in my mind, it just flows. For example, the Ethiopian Project, when I finished the treatment and showed it to a few friends of mine from Ethiopia and Eritrea, they were really moved by the writing. I was deeply honored since this is part of their history. If I could draw some of the images that are in my head when I wrote the treatment, you would see a spectacular movie!!!! I’m going to start writing the scripts tomorrow, but first I need to write the treatment for The Holocaust War, about the events in Central Africa. If you like Saving Private Ryan, Thirteen Days, Oliver Stones JFK, you’ll love this project. It tells exactly what happened in Congo, Rwanda, and Burundi. This year I’m focusing on producing the projects. An audience out there thats not being served. Well, I’m going to serve them! Okay. I’ll be back later today and go into details about each project. Latter on, Said

Quote of The Day: Blair Underwood

[From IMDB.COM] "It's so easy to sell your soul or sell out or cop out, and what it really comes down to is choices. If you have some kind of game plan, or at least a faith in your ability, it doesn't matter if this town validates you or not because you're already validated by your gifts. I just try to stay focused on what I have to offer."

Audio of scene between Mulele and Patrice

On April 29th we shoot the cemetary scene.

In the next post, which is an audio post, I am reading some dialogue from the cemetery scene. I am reading both Patrice’s and Mulele’s role. I couldn't do the whole thing because the recording time wasn’t long enough. On April 29 we’re going to do a test shot of the two of them in this scene. We’re going to shoot it in Griffith Park, a park located in Los Angeles. Then later on in May, we’re going to film this scene. I’m looking forward to it. So enjoy the audio-clip, and I’ll talk to you later.

Thanks for listening,
