In October of 1994 three student filmmakers disappeared in the woods near Burkittsville, Maryland, while shooting a documentary.
A year later their footage was found.

I have been meaning to make a post about the passing of the actor, who’s involvement in the first film I ever remember seeing, made me want to get into film. Bob Hoskins gave us amazing characters that are near and dear to so many. Especially the child in us. So, here’s to you, Bob. Thank you for your tremendous talent, memorable portrayals, and leaving your imprint on all of our hearts. You will be missed. (1942–2014)

And your ways as a human being, is not ordinary. I seek people like you just as I am sought, and I mean that in the most humble of ways. Bless you. I'm K, by the way.
I am so happy to have connected to you through this experience, K. :) It is amazing to me that even after all this time, I am still getting the chance to meet wonderful individuals I would otherwise have never known.. all because of this. :) All my love & thanks to you!
On April 19, 2014, I got to see a live staged reading of Quentin Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight’ with a superstar cast that featured Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Madsen, Amber Tamblyn, Tim Roth, Walton Goggins, Bruce Dern, James Remar, & Kurt Russell, to name a few. No cameras were allowed & there was no streaming live. It was held at the Ace Hotel United Artists theatre in Los Angeles, CA, put on by Film Independant.
To watch Tarantino give direction & personally narrate his own script, while these phenomenal actors brought the characters to life was amazing. The director informed the audience that they were reading from a first draft of the script, but that he would rewrite it at least two more times. Also, informing that the entire “Chapter 5” of the film would in no way resemble what was performed that night so, this was the only time & place anyone would ever see it. It was exciting to be apart of that. 1,200 people got to see this once in a lifetime performance & I got to be one of them. :)
