Film Courage: What was your childhood dream?
Barbara Seymour Giordano, Writer and Coach, StoryWorksLA: That’s a big question, what was my childhood dream? My childhood dream was to be a writer. But as you grow up you realize I’m not going to make any money at that. You’re going to end up in some city, living in some derelict apartment with a hotplate, alcoholic, something terrible. How many of them have horrible endings? And then I thought That can’t be me. I’d better go get a real degree and forget being a writer so I pushed it away.
Film Courage: Where do you think that stereotype comes from? Although it is true and some of those…Charles Bukowski ended up having a career and he wrote about sort of that derelict writer existence and then transcended it. Where do you think it comes from?…(Watch the video interview on Youtube here).

SCIFI HORROR SEQUEL ‘MANDAO RETURNS‘ NOW STREAMING ON AMAZON PRIME
This is the third feature from Writer/Director Scott Dunn and Producer Gina Gomez Dunn. They successfully raised funds for the sequel via Kickstarter and managed to complete production only 2 days before all film productions shut down due to the pandemic. Because of the lockdowns, Scott Dunn had to tackle post-production by himself (editing, color correction, effects, and sound) and release the flick in time for the holidays.
