Dreamed I Was Picked To Pitch A Movie Idea To Spielberg and Sail to France

I dreamed I went to an office to pitch a movie and I was second in line. So another guy was ahead of me. He pitched his movie idea and then they called on me to pitch to Spielberg but I wasn’t really ready so I told them I would be ready tomorrow so they let me come back tomorrow, in 24 hours.

Then I dreamed that I was in a meetup group for people who liked to sail. Some of them were from Orange County or Cerritos. I was a little scared to go cause it was a long trip and I might get seasick. There was a test and only a few people could pass the test and go. I took the test, which involved typing with blocks, and sometimes typing in German or French. I didn’t think I did that well, but when the time came to who was to be on the trip, they announced my name Jordan Schaffner and I was picked to be first mate or third on the old sailing ship. I felt very elated. Many of my fears of going faded away. I felt great when I woke up because of both of those fun dreams that tested me.

Dreamed That I Was In Hollywood, Coronado

I dreamed I was at the beach in Coronado and this guy came out of his condo on the balcony with a mustache who wanted to help me get my script pitches written and well known. He said he had connections and all I had to do was write it out. I wrote one on a styrofoam cup and waited for him. He found me again and he really wanted me to write another one so I wrote another one. I didn’t see him around after awhile.

San Diego Comic Festival

I had the privilege of being invited to attend the San Diego Comic Festival last weekend for Free by Photoshop impresario, Stephen Burns.

What a smorgasbord of creativity! First, Stephen taught a lesson on how to use Photoshop to create 3-D. Then I went to another suite called the Crescent Room where there was a participatory lecture about how the ancient Hawaiians navigated by direction. Then, back in the design studio, there was a class on 3D printing. The instructor said they couldn’t quite print organs yet for your body, but dentists do use a 3D printer to print replacement teeth. Whole houses have also been 3D printed for the fraction of what they usually cost, even though they don’t compare to most conventional homes. But mostly 3D is being used to print doodads and chachkes like these below.

Then in the same room, a drone seminar started with Josh Freidman. He showed how his drones can showcase Laguna Beach real estate and told us that San Diego county restricts drones for similar purposes. I asked him if he would fly a drone in the room or outside and he said he wouldn’t. That was a real disappointment. But it was interesting to learn about drones and how they can be used with Adobe Lightroom to create panoramic photography.

 

Here, Josh shows us that drones are now becoming flying cars in Dubai.

San Diego Film Week

I was lucky enough to go to a few classy filmmaking parties last weekend. The first one ended San Diego Film Week.

Here’s a few snaps:

This was the stage where music,comedy and the San Diego Film awards appeared.

Here’s a few ladies enjoying their 2 free drinks at the blackjack table.

Lots of San Diego Film Awards were handed out. I didn’t see most of the films so I can’t really comment on them.

I did attend the San Diego 48hr Film festival and saw a few there.My favorite was called, “Sorry To Bother You.” I don’t think I’d want participate in that festival because you have to pay them to pressure yourself and your cast & crew to finish a film in 48 hours, and besides the little trophy and admiration of your peers, the financial return seems minimal for all your expenses.  True, low or no budget films must be done within a few weeks before participants lose interest. But 48 hrs seems crazy to me.

Festivals abound around the world, online and they are a great way these days to establish yourself as a filmmaker.Lots of trophies were handed out that night like faux Oscars, but I won’t bore you with them. Anyway, the price of admission included 2 free drinks and 2 tacos. Rice and beans were $6.00 extra. Ouch! I came up with my own drink called the Rummelon which is made of rum, watermelon juice and club soda or sprite. Yum! 

Snakeoil cocktails provided the watermelon juice and mixed my original creation. Delicious!

Other than that, there was supposed to be a burlesque show but they thought children would attend so all we got were these “cigarette” girls handing out candy instead.

The next night, was an Oscar party at a fancy La Jolla Mansion for sale. Call me, Jordan Schaffner BRE#01736921 @ 619-346-9433 to make a serious offer over $10 million. 

Here’s where you enter and walk the red carpet.

There was also a ballot to guess the Ocar winners with a fairly large cash prize.

Great views all the way to the pacific.

This is the pool.

Incredible!

What a place to watch the Oscars, from your own infinity pool overlooking La Jolla Beach!

Here’s a few great 🔥 fireplace shots

Some beautiful flowers from the party.

And the Oscar goes to…”La La Land,” no, no, I mean “Moonlight.” Well, we all know that story by now.

Yoga Surfing In Coronado

While eating Hawaiian “pupus”at Peohe’s on the Coronado ferry landing, after writing a real estate offer on the “island,” I got these poetic shots of surfers, doing yoga on their paddle boards. It has been said that photography is all about capturing the moment.  These are some of my moments. 

Watch “Natural Born Burlesque Thrillers @ The San Diego Fringe Festival” 

One thing about the Fringe Festival is that it can make old deteriorating buildings that are on “the fringe” of acceptability here in San Diego trendy with art. This sexy Burlesque dance troupe is quite an example.
