David May’s “On the Lot” expierence

I’ve been asked by some friends to blog about “On the Lot.”

For those of you who are not familiar with OTL, I’ll offer a quick explanation. Basically, it was a show produced by Steven Spielberg, Mark Burnett, and David Goffin that was intended to be sort of like the “American Idol” for filmmakers; the search for the next “great American Filmmaker.” The show was on Fox on the summer of 2007 and I was one of the contestants.

Naturally, there are lots of things that I really just can’t blog about; I’ve been sworn to secrecy. What I can say is that it was definitely an adventure that I won’t soon forget. I started the application process in October of 2006 by submitting a short film that I created at Chapman University entitled “Fetch.” While at the Denver Starz International Film Festival with my most recent short, “Itsy Bitsy” I received a phone call from the “On the Lot” staff. I was very excited. After that, I followed their instructions until they lead me “On the Lot.”

That’s the long and the short of it, anyway. Feel free to ask me questions if you like, and the questions that I can answer, I will.

I just finished a trailer for a new project I’m working on and I’d love feedback from cyberspace.

Remember those “choose your own adventure” books you read when you were a kid? I thought it would be fun to do a “choose your fate” movie. It’s not edited yet, but we have filmed “pilot episode” and the trailer is available at http://www.davidmay.tv. I’m also including it below:

Please don’t hesitate to give me some feedback. I’ll be sure to post a new blog when the final product is finished.

My First Blog… ever.

Dear reader,

Have you ever played Halo before? I have tried once and I played with some very experienced people. At the end of the game I was incredibly humiliated about my performance – so much that I never wanted to play again… and I have not. I’m bringing this up because frankly it’s how I feel about this blog. I know it sounds stupid, but there are so many folks out there that have been doing it so long I’m worried that my blog will just really stink, and I’ll never want to do it again. None the less, here it goes; and welcome to my first blog ever.

This first blog will just be an introduction. My name is David May. I am 24 years old and currently work as an Admission Counselor for a Private School on the west coast. I also believe very much in brevity.

There. That was easier than I thought.
