New Year’s Resolutions 2014

2014

This may be a few weeks early, but I’m getting the ball rolling…!

  1. Fund and film my first short, Death Is No Bad Friend.  This is a ginormous endeavor and I’ve already put so much time and energy into it. Our trailer turned out beautifully and I’m both nervous and excited to launch our Indiegogo campaign mid-January (if everything goes as planned). For more information, please visit and follow Siren’s Gaze Productions at sirensgazeproductions.wordpress.com.
  2. Finish the script for The Poet and the Flea. Check out my plan here: Happy 256th Birthday, Mr. William Blake!
  3. Work on the next 10 illustrated pages of The Poet and the Flea. I’ve decided to dedicate December to this goal! I’ve been working on pages 31 through 40 for the past week or so, and have made much progress. I’m almost done outlining everything in ink and will begin with greyscale markers very soon. If everything goes well, I may even start on pages 41 through 50 this month!
  4. Work on the next 10 illustrated pages of The First Reich. I’m hoping to work on pages 11 through 20 in January. :)
  5. Find a publisher and/or agent to represent my work. How? Well, I’ve tried inquiry letters and I’ll continue down that path. But I also want to attend some major book fairs so that I can meet publishers and agents in person and chat with them. We’ll see how this goes!
  6. Get settled in Washington, D.C. Meaning I’d like to reconnect with old friends and make new ones too. Also, I’d like to network with D.C. filmmakers and try to get involved in local filmmaking. This past Wednesday, I met with two filmmakers — Steve and Kate — to discuss a collaborative stop motion animation short film. I’m excited to see how this project shapes up and will post more information about it soon!
  7. Attend some more film festivals. My wonderful time in Cannes has motivated me to expand my experience of film festivals. I hope to attend some local D.C. film festivals as well as perhaps some bigger ones like Tribeca or maybe even Telluride. I also plan on looking into the Creative Minds program in Toronto (though I probably won’t have the money for that).
  8. Get a decent part-time job and earn a little money. This has been a real struggle for me — getting paid versus doing something I love. I really don’t want to settle for a job that has nothing to do with my interests. But everything to do with my interests are unpaid or not enough to make ends meet. We’ll see…
  9. Perhaps invest in some film equipment and/or filmmaking software. I need to do more research in this realm, but I’m interested in learning more about Final Cut Pro, Dragonframe, and other film/animation software.
  10. Very long-term goal: Move to Brooklyn! I do miss New York City and feel that it’s the best place for me as a filmmaker. I’m hoping to start building up a nest egg so that I can eventually move! :D

This is a very challenging set of New Year’s Resolutions, but you never know until you try! :D

New Year’s Resolutions: End-of-the-Year Evaluation!

Related Post: New Year’s Resolutions, Anyone? and New Year’s Resolutions: Mid-Year Evaluation!

2013

Once again, I’ve revisited my 2013 New Year’s Resolutions — and I think I’ve done a pretty good job! Some goals didn’t work out and other I’m still working on. But, all in all, I feel that I’ve accomplished a lot this year. :)

Coming Soon: New Year’s Resolutions 2014!!!

In the meantime, here’s the breakdown…

Goals for 2013

  1. Complete materials for Elias & The City of Cats (hopefully before the end of January) and send out to publishers. I completed the materials for Elias & The City of Cats early April. The book hasn’t been picked up by a publisher yet, but I’m glad for the experience. In June, I was hired by Zest Books for a number of freelance illustrations and Scared Stiff: Everything You Need to Know about 50 Famous Phobias featuring 50+ of my illustrations will be released this coming February. :D When I get the chance, I’m hoping to write a children’s book myself entitled The Flatulent Earl. And, of course, I’d love to continue illustrating other writer’s work!
  2. Finish first 10 pages of The First Reich and get them up online. I completed the cover and first 10 pages of The First Reich in October and am excited to continue on to the next 10 pages. A preview zine of the completed pages is available on my online store The Poet and the Flea Market at thepoetandtheflea.storenvy.com/products/3203094-the-first-reich-zine.
  3. Begin working with Masa and Gabe on full-length screenplay collaboration The Blanks (working title), to be finished before June 2013. This project really didn’t go anywhere. But, in the meantime, I’ve helped a few other screenwriters edit/fix their screenplays. So that was an accomplishment!
  4. Send out query letters about my completed full-length screenplays to production companies. I’ve sent out a number of query letters to publishers, agents, etc. about both my screenplays and graphic novels. No success yet, but I just gotta keep trying!!! Next year, I’m hoping to attend some big book fairs in order to scope out and talk to publishers and agents. We’ll see how this goes!
  5. Finish the script for The Poet and the Fleahopefully somewhere between 60 – 75 pages. This is still a really important goal! And I am making progress one step at a time. For more details, please see my post Happy 256th Birthday, Mr. William Blake!
  6. Work on my first zine (possibly a tie in with The Flea) and self-print it. I have succeeded in creating and self-publishing a number of zines this year — “Smithereens,” “The Ink Drinker,” and previews of both The Poet and the Flea and The First Reich. I’ve really enjoyed learning how to self-bind these little books. :) Furthermore, I’ve exhibited these at the SF Zine Fest, SPX, and APE. So I feel very accomplished in this arena. You can check out all my zines and other merchandise at The Poet and the Flea Market (thepoetandtheflea.storenvy.com).
  7. Open up a Storenvy account to sell zines and other merchandise (prints, t-shirts, etc.). Done and done!!! The Poet and the Flea Market (thepoetandtheflea.storenvy.com).
  8. Work on the next 10 illustrated pages of The Poet and the FleaThen the next 10, and so on and so forth!! This goal is currently in progress! :)
  9. Find a reliable and talented director and/or producer to turn one of my short scripts into a short film. Then enter the short film into a number of festivals. I have a whole cast and crew lined up to help me transform my short script Death Is No Bad Friend into a short film! Currently, we are hoping to launch our Indiegogo campaign January/February 2014 and, if we get funded, film around June/July. This is an extremely challenging project for me and I hope you all will support our efforts! For more information, please visit Siren’s Gaze Productions (sirensgazeproductions.wordpress.com).
  10. Finally get an official internship, fellowship, and/or job in a field of interest. January through April, I worked as an intern at Zest Books.  In May, I went to the Cannes International Film Festival through the American Pavilion Film Program. I earned a little money and lots of experience illustrating Scared Stiff: Everything You Need to Know about 50 Famous Phobias. Now, I’m about to start work on a collaborative stop motion animation project. The busy bee never rests!

Eszter’s Quetions

1. What inspired you to start blogging?

Well, I started this particular blog to keep track of my various creative projects and to organize my thoughts a bit.

2. Is there one thing you wish you could change about yourself, what would it be?

I’m never good at answering this sort of question. Even if I could magically change something about myself, I don’t think I would.

3. If you could meet someone famous who is still living who would it be?

This is a really tough question because I don’t want to jinx my chances at Cannes.

4. What was the most interesting class you ever took in school?

Another tough question since I went to New York University: Gallatin School of Individualized Study and took a number of amazing courses including “Dante’s World,” “Virtue and Villainy: Melodrama,” and “Globalization: Promises and Discontents.” The most life-changing class I ever took was “Yellow Peril: Documenting & Understanding Xenophobia” taught by the amazing Jack Tchen. For this class, I wrote a painstakingly researched 25-page paper (plus 5 pages of works cited) about Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Girls. Jack’s new book Yellow Peril: Understanding Fears of “the East” and What We Can Do About It is coming out at the end of February, so check it out if you’re interested!

5. What did you want to be when you were little?

I think I always wanted to be a comic book artist/graphic novelist/mangaka since I was in elementary school up through high school graduation. I drifted away from comics/graphic novels/manga in college, but as you can tell from The Poet and the Flea have regained my passion.

6. If you could decorate your work-space however you wanted, what would be your feature color?

Well, when I moved to San Francisco, I really got to decorate my workspace and I wouldn’t really change a thing (other than that it sometimes gets way too hot and there’s no air-conditioning). My room is mostly made of various shades of blue with splashes of yellow, tan, and salmon. It’s pretty funky!

7. If your life were a book, what would be the title?

Radiant Pessimist™ (this will also be the name of my future production company — I have Laurence Harvey to thank for that one).

8. What one happy memory do you have always coming to mind?

I don’t really have one memory that always comes to mind. But I recently thought of a childhood memory (when I was maybe six or seven years old) that I really hadn’t thought of for a long time — me and my dad bobbing in the ocean off of Kiawah Island. I remember that my nose was really runny, ha ha ha.

9. Do you prefer to read actual books or use an E-reader?

Actual books, hands down! It’s just not the same experience with an e-reader. The tactile feeling of a book, the smell of it, the typography and placement on the page, the action of turning from page to page… I really have a hard time reading on my iPad.

10. If you could keep only one item from your wardrobe, what would it be?

I’ve only worn it once, but the skirt of the prom outfit my grandmother made me. She died September 2011, so I’m extremely reluctant to let it go.

11. If you win some millions in lottery, what would be the first thing you buy?

I wouldn’t “buy” anything per se. I’d rather fund a full-length film of either my own script or that of a close friend.

Can’t I just nominate all my followers? You’re all so awesome and talented! :)

My Questions

I liked the questions I wrote last time, so I’ll use them again…

  4. Who is your role model?
  5. What is your favorite holiday?
  6. What is your least favorite vegetable?
  7. What is your guilty pleasure?
  8. Are you an optimist or pessimist?

Internship at Zest Books!

zestbooks-60_600

Disclaimer: I do not own this image!!

Only January, and I can already check #10 off my New Year’s resolutions list (New Year’s Resolutions, Anyone?). I have finally gotten an official internship in a field of my interest. :)

At the end of the month, I will start working at Zest Books, a publishing company focused on readers in their teens and early twenties!

Last week, I had an interview with Ann (Marketing and Editorial Associate) and was hired for the internship on the spot. It’s a small office in a really cool building/neighborhood and, on first impression, extremely friendly staff.

For this internship, I really feel like I’ll be able to utilize a number of my skills (writing, editing, social media, Japanese language & culture, etc.). I might also have an opportunity to do some freelance illustration work for them as well, which would be absolutely amazing! Plus, the internship is only a couple days a week, so I’ll still have ample time to continue my independent projects like The Poet and the Flea. Most of all, I’m excited to learn everything I possibly can about the business side of publishing!!

One really cool aspect of Zest Books is their Teen Advisory Board. They have a number of teen readers who work as interns and help the publishers figure out what kind of books teens would like to read/see published. According to Ann, the current Teen Advisory Board is really into anime/manga and Doctor Who — so I think I’ll get along with these kids just fine! :D

Zest focuses on non-fiction titles, from memoirs to how-to books. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been really looking into their titles and have found a number of books that pique my interest. I’ve complied a list of my favorites below, so check them out!

  1. Super Pop
  2. Dear Teen Me
  3. Dead Strange
  4. The End
  5. The Look Book
  6. Reel Culture
  7. The Dictionary of High School B.S.
  8. Uncool
  9. Indie Girl
  10. Crap

Anyway, I’m really looking forward to starting this internship and will share my learning experience with all of you. Wish me luck!!

First Zine and Future Shop

★Please Note: Feedback on this post would be extremely appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Only January, and I’m already beginning to tackle some of my New Year’s goals (New Year’s Resolutions, Anyone?)!!!

First and foremost, I’ve been working on goal #1, making progress on some of the finished illustrations for Elias & The City of Cats. I’m hoping to make a bit more progress in the coming days and then meet up with Gabe on Friday to show him my work. :D

In the meantime, I’ve been brainstorming on goals #6 and #7, my first self-printed zine and my online storefront!

Zine:Shop 1

Possible envelopes for first zine.

The other day, I decided that my first self-printed zine will be an illustrated poem.

I was doing some research on The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and came across the perfect poem for my first zine! I think this poem will be unexpected and exciting while still tying in with The Poet and the Flea. The poem will remain a secret for now, but I’ll give a free copy of my zine to the first person who can correctly guess which one it is. Hint: The Seven Deadly Sins. I’ll be truly impressed if anyone gets this!

As far as production goes, I’d like to keep this zine relatively simple since it’s my first: about 6 to 8 pages, black and white with simple lines, a number of special hand-watercolored copies, all packaged in a lovely envelope. I’ll probably print about 25 or 30 copies, but I’d love to know if anyone is seriously interested in purchasing a copy so that I can figure out if I need to print more or less.

Zine:Shop 2

I’ve been planning my online storefront for a while now, but I’m waiting for the right time to set it up and launch it.

I’ve decided to use Storenvy, because it seems user-friendly and stylish. And it helps that it’s free.

Other than my first self-printed zine, I’d like to offer a wide range of products including The Poet and the Flea merchandise (prints/posters, t-shirts, tote bags, badges/pins, etc.). For prints, I’d like to keep them high-quality but made-to-order so that one can request any page of The Flea or whatnot.

The most ambitious product I’d like to see in my store is a The Flea plush toy. I’ve been playing around with many ideas for this, but know it has to remain relatively simple. The plush toy will definitely be handmade in black fabric, possibly with buttons for eyes and silver/gold (maybe glow-in-the-dark) fabric paint to add texture/scales. It will take me a while to get to this project (and I might recruit some help for it), but I’m excited to see how everything turns out.

Also, I’d like to offer commissioned illustrations, but I have to work out the details on that!

Again, feedback is very welcome! Just leave a comment below or send me an e-mail at gegallas@hotmail.com!

New Year’s Resolutions, Anyone?

IMG_4674

2012, My First Year in San Francisco!

I don’t usually do this “New Year’s resolution” thing. But I have so many short-term and long-term goals, I thought this would be a good way to organize my brain.

I’m not sure exactly how long it will take to complete this goal list, but I’m hoping to accomplish a good chunk within the coming months.

But, before that, I’d also like to make a list of my recent accomplishments. Often, I feel like nothing is moving forward, so hopefully this list will remind me that my hard work is paying off.

  5. Accepted into The American Pavilion 2013 Cannes Film Program!!!
  6. Plus, I now have an awesome boyfriend. (◕‿◕✿)

Eleven Facts about G. E. Gallas

I’m going to cut corners a little bit since I already answered a ton of questions about myself for other awards. So check out more than eleven facts about me on my posts Reader Appreciation Award and Very Inspiring Blogger Award. (^-^;;)

***

Denises’s Questions

1. What makes you laugh?

I laugh at any number of odd things, especially at awkward situations I may find myself in. Oh, I can keep myself endlessly amused.

2. How do you like to spend your spare time?

Spare time? What spare time?

3. What’s your favourite book?

This question is impossible to answer. Joseph Campbell’s The Hero with a Thousand Faces is practically my bible (I mentioned I’m a Jewish atheist, right?). I’m also quite fond of Robert Graves’s I, Claudius, Alexandre Dumas’s The Count of Monte Cristo, Yukio Mishima’s Spring Snow (Haru no Yuki), E. L. Doctorow’s Ragtime, etcetera, etcetera. My bookshelf looks frighteningly like a Penguin Classics library!

4. What inspires you most?

Artists who are extraordinarily dedicated to their work inspire me the most.

5. If you could change one thing in your life, what would it be?

Wouldn’t change a thing!

6. Has blogging an impact in your real life?

Hmm, let me think about that one — not sure yet.

7. Would you meet in your real life someone you’ve met on the internet?

I have already met in real life a number of people I’ve met on the internet.

8. What do you find annoying?
