Final graduation at Santa Fe University of Art and Design (SFUAD), where I’ve served as professor of screenwriting since 2009. The University’s shuttering its doors, and once I move out of my faculty office in June, I’ll be 100% back to the freelance life. My faculty colleagues and I feel we accomplished a lot, and alumni from the past decade are now busy forging their lives and careers. It’s been a great ride, and one I’ll always treasure.
In the meantime (while I do some traveling and then start packing up the office), I’d love to invite you to check out the independent feature film I’m writing and co-producing: 2-WAY. Head to the website, then jump on the social media links and like/follow our feeds (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram: whatever flavor(s) you like). Final chapter on SFUAD in June, once I’m out of the office…
Thanks so much to all of you who have already liked our 2-WAY Facebook page; it’s really appreciated! (And if you haven’t yet, this is the perfect time to click on the link and like/follow the page — or you can always search for @2waythemovie in Facebook, and find us.)
Dozens of likes can move us into hundreds of likes which can ultimately move us to thousands of likes. And this is actually really important, as it helps us in lining up territorial pre-sales, product placement, and crowdfunding (it’s 2018, and social media performance helps with everything). This is what independent feature films have to do to gain traction in a very crowded marketplace.
In the meantime, if you also have an Instagram account, we’d love to have you follow us there as well: again, you can search for @2waythemovie — or click on this handy link. While content will overlap between our Facebook&Twitter feeds and our Instagram feed, you’ll definitely find some unique content on Instagram, since we’re trying to communicate solely using perfectly square imagery. 🙂
I’ve kept a very low profile online this past year, partly because I’ve still been employed full-time as a screenwriting professor at Santa Fe University of Art and Design, and partly because I’ve been working on several new projects that will gradually begin seeing the light of day in the months ahead.
Thus, I’m very excited to publicly unveil 2-WAY, a feature film screenplay of mine that I’m also exec-producing. As is usually the case these days, my partners and I will be documenting the development, pre-production and production journey of 2-WAY via the Web and social media, and we would love you to share the journey!
Sadly, Santa Fe University of Art and Design (SFUAD) has announced its closure in 2018. With the academic year having recently concluded, I’ve been asked to stay on as a full-time professor in The Film School (where I’ve been teaching since 2009) for one final year — to ensure that seniors finish their BFA degree program.
