American Psycho Confession Personalized

American Psycho confession

This is the American Psycho Confession scene with a personal touch. I think if I tried to imitate the crying/mental breakdown I would sound awful, so giving it a personal touch and hoping for the best.

 

As always, critique/suggestion is always welcome on account of knowing I have a lot to learn. Thank you for checking it out.

American Psycho- Narration Revamped

American Psycho Narration Revamp

Been busy lately, but giving the narration bid a fair shot and seeing what I can make happen there. I’m a novice with a lot to learn so any and all suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

 

 

Revisiting this because I’m dead-driven toward getting this audio as close as possible, or unique enough to make my version stand out ^^

Journey

This is the first piece of audio narration I’m throwing up online. I have a long way to go, learning Adobe Audition effects/edit techniques is a challenge. A friend has said I need to edit the amount of times I reference the location for this story, and I agree ūüôā

But for right now, it’s a place to start and a step toward something new. Audio file below:

 

 

Poison

poison

Poison

I can feel the anger
It seethes inside my bones
It fixates my interest
When I am all alone

I can feel tension
It spreads across my skin
Tasting life’s impurities
Originating sin

A grin begins to surface
It spreads across my face
As my eyes mislead lies
Will you have a taste?

I will take your interest
And poison with a sound
As words shadow hope
Care’s left here broken

Alone, and bound.

Voice

Inside’s a coat of hate
A list of broken fate
Cast out from my eyes
Across a dreamy slate

Steps slow and cold
Cares that slowly fold
Inside each desire
A shadow there to hold

I’m broken in the mirror
Thoughts becoming clear

Tears can tell a tale
Hopes hanging by a nail
Lost in this abyss
Needs are turning stale

I need a way to stand
Pain has stained my hands
Never looking back
It’s one step without a plan

A crack inside the wall
The cover to my fall
This moment casts a gloom
Stumbling, I crawl

A shade inside the seam
A ghost becomes a fiend
Looking through the mess
Echoes by a final scream

A scream that echoes silent
Something everyone can hear

Masterpiece

masterpiece

Pulse left dripping
Eyes are bare
Reaching out
Yet, finding air

Drained of life
A poisoned soul
Clouds of thought
With no control

Despair’s hand
Clenching tight
Breaking dreams
Creating night

Scars that stain
That take a name
Engraving you
Spreading pain

You will be my story
My crafted masterpiece

Buried Beneath Today

Buried Beneath Today

buried beneath today

Bound, I’m incomplete
Hope is at my feet
Eyes a tear of time
Hungry for some sleep

Inside’s a throb of pain
Life isn’t the same
Every passing moment
I sign off with my name

Time is bare of thought
Endless pain, I caught
Every breath I take
Laced by times forgot

Words a splinter’s point
Reaching for a way
As my hope is torn
Buried beneath today

As Love and Hate Collide

As Love and Hate Collide

A shard inside my heart
Snared, it breaks apart
Try to sew the wounds
Pain prevents a start

I try to find my breath
Finding nothing left
As I close my eyes
Feeling for my chest

A beat that’s underneath
Strangled, incomplete
Reaching for a home
Starving with a need

Stories carved inside
Pain that i hide
I watch the world spin
As love and hate collide

Double Deez Tattoos

I got my first tattoo at the age of 18. I’m creative and find that power behind an image can be something that only a few people can really grasp and understand. It’s for this very reason that great tattoo artists stand out in comparison to those that simply do it for the sake of a job.

Andrew Harris is someone that I’ve known since Kindergarten, which based around a rule of time would grant me the ability to say, I know him pretty well.

If personality paid in today’s world, Andrew wouldn’t have to work. He has a way with people that contributes toward his actual calling: art, and the skill of tattooing. His skill and his passion in the work makes his shop stand out amongst his competition, which is exactly why you should take a minute to cast him a vote to generate the recognition his establishment deserves.

Many of us find ourselves crawling through search engines when making the decision of a tattoo. It is, after all, a decision that lasts forever.

The value behind these online polls and contests has become a reference point of security. I can state first hand that if you are looking for someone that delivers the perfect tattoo experience, then look no further. From the moment you walk inside the shop, up until the completion of the tattoo, you will be in good hands at Double Deez Tattoos.

Getting to Know the Artist- Andrew Harris

 

What made you want to become an artist?

Ever since middle school I wanted a tattoo. I begged my parents for a machine, which they declined, but they let me get my first piece¬†of art at the age of 16. I was hooked. Being an artist wasn’t even something that came to mind, but with fate being a funny thing, tattooing kind of chose me. Bill “Wizard” Paterson was a friend who offered an opportunity working in his shop, at that point it was just a customer services opportunity, but it grew from there.

Did you get an apprenticeship? Or What was the training involved?

Working at Wizards put me in a position where I learned a lot from daily observation. An apprenticeship was offered, which is extremely rare. Most people need to search for them, I was really lucky. After 2 years of dedication I absorbed enough to be ready to tattoo and take on clients.

During this time I ran myself into debt, I put all my time into learning, it was all a risk, but I knew it was what I wanted to do. If I had to redo it, I would make the same choices. 

What is your personal style of tattooing?

I like to work off of photos, otherwise known as photo realism and prefer black and grey as opposed to color.

Is there a specific accomplishment thus far in your career you’re most proud of?

Some artists may highlight specific pieces of work they’ve done, and sure I have pieces I’m proud of, but the most valuable accomplishment, to me, is the group of artists I work with on a regular basis. Shops have a common ground for trouble and that is keeping artists working together, in sync, with minimal problems. Ego’s can be an issue, self-empowerment, the things you would expect in a skill-driven occupation.

The group we have here is a family, we moved up from the co-worker status a long time ago. We rely on each other.

What’s the most challenging part of tattooing?

The fact that there is no room for error. Everything is permanent and clients expect things to go perfect, which is completely reasonable, it should go perfect.

Any advice for people thinking about getting their first tattoo?

It’s not a rush. Take your time and do your research. So many times i’ve seen people rush it just to get it done and that isn’t what tattooing is all about. Tattoo’s are about expression and appreciating the end outcome of a piece of art. People tend to forget that tattoos last for a little while.

Spread the Word

Andrew is a hard-working artist that took a chance and pursued¬†the strongest passion of¬†his life. Was there risk? Absolutely. Concerns? You bet. Did they pay off? Andrew wouldn’t trade what he does for a living for anything.

This is a chance to give back to a shop that cares so much about art, and the work they do involving it. Take a minute to give appreciate them for their hard work, cast a vote with a click, and promote artist’s¬†that are truly passionate about what the work they do.

Stephen Bortsalas Film Productions

Stephen Bortsalas is a personal friend that has been on a journey to develop film for as long as I’ve known him. His personal website, 4 Mile Radius Productions can be accessed by clicking here.

I know very little about the film industry, it’s actually safe to say that I know nothing. The extent of my knowledge is the personal preference of being a film buff and the genres I like.

It doesn’t take away from the fact that film is a creative industry that has incredibly talent working behind it. This brings up my next point: breaking into this industry is incredibly challenging.

This post is a post to promote a personal friend of mine that, one that I’ve have known for years, that is not only passionate about his craft, but passionate about life itself.

Professionally he is hard-working, self-driven, and creative. On a personal level I view him as a role-model. He’s someone you can actually look up to and I don’t state those words in a casual way.

This is a link to his debut trailer, Denounced, which I encourage everyone to check out. You can view this trailer by clicking here.

Getting Personal

As mentioned, I’ve known Stephen Bortsalas for a long time. I worked with him at Wegmans.¬†Contrary to popular belief, it wasn’t the nature of the work that created the friendship. My feelings for Wegmans are not a secret, you can read about that here. Should a film arise where Stephen survives a satanic cult the muse will be¬†Wegmans.

I speak for myself there, aka, Wegmans leave Stephen alone. You definitely suck, but it’s only me stating it.

Stephen became a friend quickly because we were two creatively-driven people that made conversation interesting and fun.

I had a quick interview with Stephen on account of wanting to get this information up and running.

What got you into film?

As a young child I was always drawn to the spectacle of movies. It transported me into another place where my mind could be let free to imagine. After the loss of my mother film took on another meaning and allowed me for brief time to escape from the pain and this is where I fell in love with film.

What makes you passionate about it?

It’s something that was born into me and feel it’s my calling. I love the creative process from writing, shooting, editing, and then to the screen. Film has impacted my life greatly, so I want to give that same feeling back to people. It’s one of the most rewarding feelings seeing your finished product.

What is your top goal in the film industry?

My goal is to impact peoples live through the art of cinema. I want to be best and have my name/company be a household name. Be a filmmaker whose work changes lives and is thought provoking. So, I guess the next Spielberg lol. I want to do what I love for a living. The only way to do great work is to love what you do.

Favorite Film?

Jurassic Park…. I was obsessed with dinosaurs as a kid. I inquired about the new or the old versions, and was told that he was referring to the old versions of the film.

Can you elaborate on the old and the new?

I really enjoyed the new one and they did some nostalgic moments well. But nothing comes close to the original. The first Jurassic Park was shot on film not digital which makes it more realistic/gritty. Also mostly done on practical sets/animatronics back then not all this green screen cgi. The first one pioneered the world to special effects. Jurassic World is the second best in the franchise. Can’t beat the first time you see T-Rex in the original.

In Closing

Everything written above takes the word passion and defines it around an individual, my friend, Stephen Bortsalas. I support his quest to achieve his goal and make his dream a reality. I admire his drive and the things that drive his motivation.

Stephen, this is to you my friend. Any kind of exposure this may bring is the very least I can do to encourage your great efforts of following your dream.
