Writing My First True Story

This afternoon, I had the pleasure of sitting down with an incredible young girl and her father to learn more about their amazing story of faith and survival.

A few weeks ago, I was talking to someone I know and somehow the topic of one of his friends and his daughter came up. With what very little he talked about, I instantly felt connected to the story and knew that it was one that was just waiting to be told. So I contacted the guy and asked if he and his daughter would mind sitting down with me to discuss the possibility of making a film, or writing a novel about her story. Little did I know how extraordinary the story actually was. Don’t Stop — There’s Plenty More

“Never Stop Living” and the Kickstarter Popular Club

Well, the Kickstarter campaign for my feature film, Never Stop Living, (an inspirational sports drama about a young girl who wants nothing more than to pitch in one final game before succumbing to her terminal illness) is a week old, and so far, just over a handful of people have contributed. That’s awesome and I want thank all of those who have taken the time to do so! And with 27 days left, there’s still plenty of time to get people excited and help bring this tremendous story to life. Find out how you can help

Feature Film, “Never Stop Living,” LIVE on Kickstarter

It’s official! The crowd-funding campaign for my new feature film, the inspirational sports drama, Never Stop Living, is now LIVE on Kickstarter. Over the next 35 days (ending at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, September 29), I’m hoping to raise at least $250,000 to help fund all aspects of the film, including pre- and post-production costs, casting at least one well-known actor (at the top of my list: Phoebe Cates, Chloe Grace Moretz and Josh Duhamel), marketing materials and major film festival submissions. Find out how this campaign was born

Teach a Man To Fish…

This blog post is actually a few days late — I wanted to post this on Monday — but I had to play major catch-up early this week and I had a long day of networking yesterday, so the post got relegated to the back-back burner. But now that I’ve got caught up on a few things, I finally have time to settle in and focus on this recap of my past week, and the information overload I experienced. Don’t Stop — There’s Plenty More

August Promotion

With the beginning of August comes a brand new month-long promotion at Phoenix Moirai.

During the entire month of August, request a logo design and receive a business card design for free.

That’s right! A free business card design with the order of any logo design request. Of course, with an offer like this, there are going to be some stipulations. First of all, this free offer is for the design of the business cards only, so if you would like Phoenix Moirai to have your cards printed, there will be an extra charge for that. Secondly, the design for the business cards is entirely at the discretion of Phoenix Moirai. You will have a chance to review a proof and make any changes to the text, your contact information or the colors, but anything more than that (such as changes to the design and layout or additional proofs), will be charged accordingly. But that isn’t so bad, since it will still be completely personalized to the personality and the aesthetic of the logo that you will have approved before the cards are designed.

At Phoenix Moirai, we can design anything that needs to be printed. For more information about specific services Phoenix Moirai offers, prices on a variety of specially designed service packages, and to view some of my portfolio pieces, please go to and request a quote today!

Be Honest, Be Yourself

On a recent episode of Hell’s Kitchen, Gordon Ramsey, as he usually does at some point in every episode, chewed out a contestant for one reason or another. Though it’s familiar territory for all of the chefs, this seems to hit this one pretty hard, so after the dinner service is over, he goes up to one of Ramsey’s sous chefs and asks her how she does it — how she can work with Gordon day in and day out, especially after making a mistake or two during a service. She tells him that he can’t take it personally, and that whenever she has a day where nothing goes right, she simply wakes up the next morning and says, “today’s a new day.” Don’t Stop — There’s Plenty More

Strange Occurances…

Everyone, I’m sure, has had those days where something happens (no matter how small) that doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. Just yesterday, in fact, a couple of things made me scrunch my eyebrows up in a quizzical manner and think, “Uhh…. okaayy….” Don’t Stop — There’s Plenty More

Mini-Reviews on Twitter

From the birth of this blog, I have been reviewing one movie per week as part of my Movie Mayhem blog posts. The thing is, I go to two, sometimes three movies per week; I just don’t have the time to cover them all in full detail. Which is why, now that I’ve joined Twitter, I’ll be posting Mini-Reviews — all of my thoughts on the movies I don’t go into full detail with on this blog in 140 characters or less.

And I probably won’t stop at just movies (or movies I see on the big screen). I will also look at doing mini-reviews on all types of media as my mood dictates, including TV, books and music.

To check out my Mini-Review of Think Like A Man Too, follow me @phoenixmoirai or like me on facebook.
