  2. Hmm, your article on Caine’s genius was great. I stopped for a moment when you said :
    “I write this as I am finishing writing a script for my first film project in ten years not to be made in a classroom. I love teaching. But my passion is making movies. ”
    Sounds like my own world. Similar passions and places. Best of luck.
    BTW, what is the script about?

    • @Mark, Thank you for your comment. Mostly, I’m trying to keep my film and teaching worlds separate but I may write more about the process of making a movie in the future.
