    Writer/ Director Scott Schirmer, "Found"

    in Film

    Writer/ Director Scott Schirmer's first feature length film, "Found," won Best Feature, Best Director and Best Actor at Elvira’s Horror Hunt in 2012. It went on to win Best Horror Feature at The Phoenix Film Festival and the Audience Prize and Jury Prize at the Nevermore Film Festival. It was also an official selection of the 31st Annual Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival.

    This film features disturbing content as the topic explores a young boy discovering his older brother is a serial killer, yet the strength of the film comes from the relationship between the brothers, the internal motivation and yearnings in both, as well as the dynamic with the parents in this dysfunctional family.

    Scott's in depth look into his characters surely comes from his study of sociology (with a concentration in gender studies) at Indiana University in Bloomington, where he earned his B.A.

    Besides "Found," Scott has written and directed many award-winning short films. Scott also managed his hometown's Von Lee Theatre and hosted the film music appreciation program “Sounds of Cinema” on the city’s community radio station, WFHB.

    "Found" will be showing at the FSC Super Geek Film Festival on Saturday, July 5. http://floridasupercon.com/found.

    Author Commentary : The Awakening

    in Entertainment

    Tonight, I'll be discussing my first and only completed project in the Sentinel Fandom that is not a cross over with Stargate. Questions in the chatroom, on the phone, or on my LiveJournal listing for this radio show are welcome.

    Title: The Awakening
    Author: Keira Marcos
    Fandom: The Sentinel
    Pairing: Blair/Jim
    Betas: Ladyholder & Kelly
    Status: Complete

    Word Count: 69,152
    Rating: NC-17 (for sex, violence, and very adult themes)
    Warnings: Foul language, explicit sex, violence, murder, blood, discussion of sexual abuse and violence against minor characters, and various other things you might suspect in a story about a Sentinel Cop and his Guide. Mean!Carolyn. Selfish!Naomi.

    Summary: Detective Jim Ellison doesn’t want a Guide. What he wants is peace and quiet and maybe for his ex-wife to disappear. Dr. Blair Sandburg, a successful profiler with the FBI, has nearly given up on finding his Sentinel. Then the night came where one’s pain drew the other across the country – neither will ever be the same.

    Arnold, the Island Boy, and His Life on the Rock

    in Writing

    Although we are just 4 years apart in age and were neighbors about five houses away and students at Sts. Peter and Paul Elementary School, Arnold and I did not know each other very well until now that we are retired and I have returned to our common home. So, let's learn together what Arnold has to say about his life as a child growing up on St. Thomas.

    "I was born at Easter-time 1950 on St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands – a 32 square mile island in the middle of the chain of islands that separates the Atlantic Ocean from the Caribbean Sea. Sixty-three years later, I'm still living on the same island. But I've had a lifetime of experiences and adventures – some of them positive and exciting, others terrifying and heartbreaking, and still others that were, quite frankly, very embarrassing. I invite you to travel with me down memory lane as I share with you what it was like growing up on this little island that its residents affectionately call 'The Rock'."

    Some might think it is somewhat egotistical that I'm writing my life story. After all, why would anyone be interested in reading it? I guess in a way, that's true. However, I'm writing this mainly for my daughter, granddaughter, and their future descendants. It wasn't until very recently that I became interested in family history and, by that time, my grandparents, my father, and most of my aunts and uncles had already passed away. My wife, Helena Elvira Perkins, is in the same situation because her parents and other ancestors are also now gone. Unfortunately, we didn't think of asking them about their life stories when they were alive and now it's too late. Hopefully, this biography will serve that purpose and, at the same time, be of interest to anyone who has ever lived on St. Thomas.
