So the lovely Sofia has done a director’s cut of the YouStar Finale episode. So watch it, enjoy, and someday I will write some actual content. Or I won’t. It’s my site, I can do whatever I want with it. Episode 10: The Finale Part 2 from Sofia Voltin on Vimeo. *Special Director's Extended Cut* The conclusion of the YouStar Finale. Dreams collide, and truth is told.
This is it! This is the finale to YouStar: Road to Fame. Albeit some re-edits in the coming weeks to the episodes, this is the finale. Watch and see how Sebastiella fares in the competition. Diego and Nisa – will they continue their friendship? And bonus scene at the end which was an absolute delight to film. Enjoy the episode! We loved shooting it!

While I am nowhere near the point in my career where staffing season directly affects me, I am applying to several fellowships, festivals, and the ilk at the moment. So in my procrastination way, I have put it off as long as possible. So by May, I need to have two specs, and due to rule changes, a pilot. Want to know what is stressful? Writing a pilot. I’ve never done it before – I’ve thought about it but always pick apart my ideas to the point of not wanting to ever go near them again. But here I go. Trudging along on a pilot I originally thought up a few years ago, that has gone from short film, to feature, to failed attempt at NaNoWriMo novel. So here I go turning it into a pilot. And holy shit is it stressful. My idols are bloody geniuses, so I always feel like a failure. Which granted, I am a baby writer so probably am. Scratch that, I’m not even a baby writer, I’m a fetus writer. Still forming into a fully fledged baby writer. Maybe in 9 months I’ll be a baby writer? Maybe 5 years. WHO KNOWS. Along with the pilot, I have two specs. Both in the same-ish genre. One is more monster of the week, one is solid action with some in depth mythology. So which is easier? NONE OF THEM. THEY ARE ALL HARD. I commend every single writer out there, because this is such a thankless thing to do with one’s time. And so rarely does money come out of it. The whole bleeding process is like a sprinkle of chance on a pile of stress surrounded by a moat of fake promises. So to sum it up, my life right now involves sitting at my computer, crossing ideas off of various drafts, slightly higher levels of alcohol consumption, occasional child’s pose randomly on the kitchen floor, and wanting to throw things. Hey kids, writing is a great career choice!

I have been working on a few projects, but with all I do I keep stopping to do other things. You have a deadline coming up? Let’s research new age crystals for 2 hours instead of work. Sure, there’s the spurts of productivity, but those seem to be outweighed by Netflix marathons of unnamed not-so-great sci-fi shows. (No regrets, actually.) And my god, is Pinterest the greatest time suck. Need to work on your story? How about we search DIY projects that you will start and never finish? (Apologies in advance to B & Ice if your children do not get handmade blankets from me. Books are awesome too…) So for the next week, my mantra is this: WRITE YOU DUMB BITCH Let’s see how it works…
After dabbling with various blogs for the past 15 years, I decided to start a new one at the behest of the illustrious Isis. Expect to find my musings on television, movies, books, comic books, life, and whatever is lolling about in my mind space. And cats.
