I helped write a movie. Now we need help.

             On the path to Hell, a serial killer brings his talents to a small country town.

Support The Line

On Friday April 7th an Indiegogo campaign to collect production funds for The Line will start it’s six month long drive. The Line is written by Jin Okubo, author of Love, and will be directed by Jimmy Lee, founder of the Unity Film Festival. Production is scheduled to take place this fall at a derelict farm in California. The Line is a psycho thriller about a group of murders that the FBI believes are all related to the same person, an unnamed and unknown serial killer.

In a world of remakes, prequels, and sequels, we’re looking to make something new.  We’re working to capture again the feeling of meeting the monster in the dark, an unknown killer, without basing it on someone else’s character. The depravities and impulses of the human mind are as unique as the individual. And no one makes a better monster to humans than another human. This is the story we want to tell, want to share with the world, but we need help to make the horror come alive.

Remember in Silence of the Lambs, how you felt when Jody Foster was in that basement. Through the night vision you can see the utter fear and helplessness in her eyes. In a way you could taste that damp air she was breathing. We have a great story, now we need the funds to hire fabulous actors and crew to finish it. Let's show the world that great acting still exists and great stories can still be made.

In making, and funding, this short film we are striving to show you what can lay hidden behind a human face. And in order to do that we encouraging our backers to help us, in more ways than just money. We have several interesting perks that will make you a part of the film itself, not just a sponsor or patron. Check out the Indiegogo Campaign The Line Short Film to see how you can join us, and our killer, in our movie.

What Women Want a handy guide

  With Valentine's Day coming up I thought I would write a quick handy guide to explain what women really want.

  It's really easy, especially when you think about who women are. So I'll break this down a little and first I will explain who women are.

  Women are people. Period. The end. We make up slightly more than half the population. We come in all heights, weights, colors, and abilities. (Just like men!) We have differing tastes in style. (Just like men!) We have differing hobbies. (Just like men!) We have differing ideas of romance. (Just like men!) We have differing tastes in food. (Just like men!) We like a wide variety of things. (Just like men!)

  So now that we've talked about women, let's talk about what you should get your special someone that is a woman.

  I have no clue.

  See, I don't know her. I don't know her likes. I don't know her dislikes. I don't know what you, as a couple, think is appropriate spending for a shared holiday.

  So here is my advice.

  Ask her.

  Pretty easy right?

  But, Rebekah! (You might say.) My girlfriend/guy friends/dad/uncle/media tells me that women want men to read their minds and they will get angry if I don't already know what they want!

  To which I reply, Bullshit.

  You're not a mind reader. Everyone already knows that. And you know what is really damn sexy? Having someone you love come up to you and say, "Hey babe, what do you want for Valentine's this year?" or "So did you want to do something new this year, or just the same ole thing?" or even better "I want to know what you want, and what you want to do." Nothing is sexier than having someone listen to your wants and needs and then act on it.

Because at the end of the day what makes us feel loved the most is having a partner that listens and cares and is willing to go out of their way to make us feel good. (Just like men!)
