The feeling pressure part of the title of this blog isn't about that at all I will explain that as the blog forms, here we go :)
I started working on the Science Fiction outline late last week and have a lot of it written which surprises me not because I doubt my writing ability but because I didn't think it would come so easily to me . Horror comes easy to me because I'm a horror nut science fiction is something I enjoy watching but writing was something that I thought would be very difficult and it is to a point once you get an idea of who the characters are and what they are doing in the story you can figure things out as you go along .
Note : I have never really written a science fiction script because I don't know alot about the genre and for a long time I felt that I would have to do a ton of research to write a complex story for hardcore science fiction fans .
I'm very excited to tackle this project for many reasons, I do love Science Fiction movies and it's another genre where you can do things that really extend the mind and the thought process beyond the normal range as well as do things that can't be done in other genres .
I'm really looking forward to expanding my thought process to science fiction and making a film that might (hopefully) appeal to a wider audience then the Sins of Man trilogy .
Note : The characters have all been worked out, the major plot points have been developed and outline is almost complete so this project is very close to entering the writing stage .
Note : I don't blame anyone for the pressures I face as it relates to building the Wicked Carnival Productions brand, I did all of this on my own this is simply about me explaining the thought process that has lead me to where I am right now .
I don't think people understand that when one person runs all of this the pressure falls on that one persons shoulders and while everything I do is for the betterment of Wicked Carnival Productions everything I do is also looked at by the fan base under a microscope .
I tried to expand this website to other genre's and added a non horror movie review video which got 10 views from 4 videos, no one watches the Superhero Q & A Videos the Superhero movie review got total of 3 views . I'm at a loss here folks, you have contacted me and asked me repeatedly to add the Superhero and non horror content to the website and they you don't watch it ?? that doesn't make any sense to me at all, like I said I'm at a loss here folks . I want to build a website that you will tell your friends and family about just as much as I want to create movies that captivate the audience in a way that makes you excited about the next release coming from us .
Note : The expansion of the website was my attempt to build a bigger fan base which apparently it's too early to think expansion until we gain a bigger support system with our films , lesson learned .
I said earlier in this blog that a lot of the pressure on me comes from myself and I think any one who is successful in this business will tell you we are our own worst enemy just as much as we are our own biggest supporter, it's double edged sword in many ways . There is no such thing as an "Overnight success" in any industry it takes 5, 10, 20 years to be come an "overnight sensation" .
Note : While I know I'm not just going to wake up tomorrow and be a millionaire I also know that I'm in this for the long haul and I refuse to quit because the best is yet to come from me as a writer / director and from Wicked Carnival Productions as a company ...
One decision I've made just now looking at the screen it I will be doing away with the slogan "Let Make Slashers Great Again" because while it's cute and catchy it's not true representation of what I want Wicked Carnival Productions to be known for so that's gone ! I want you fans to be happy and excited about what we are doing so if you have any thoughts or suggestions about making this site more for you let me know :)
I will be discontinuing many of the non horror video series for now as I need to focus on finishing the Sins of Man trilogy and working on the next several projects before I can really decide on what the future will hold in terms of new content for the site .
STAY HUMBLE, STAY HUNGRY MY FRIENDS :)
