Sometimes, when you take stock of your life, make that bucket list, you can distill down the things you think you want into little piles. Some of the things are actually needed, some are extra. And a few, maybe one or two, are the golden nuggets. They are the little sparkles that linger in our life dreams. This is the story of a dreamer who wears his golden nugget on his heart.
I have one brother. Jim Malone, named after my incredible father, works in NYC, lives on Long Island with his sweet wife and daughters. This man has an imagination like none I’ve ever met. He thinks up stories and sees them as movies.
Jim’s screenplay, TURNING TWO, won the grand prize at the 2012 “Shoot in Philadelphia Screenwriting Contest” hosted by the Greater Philadelphia Film Office. He rounded up a producer, cinematographer, crew, and actors and shot a movie trailer in October. So, finally, I make my point–all I want for Christmas is for you to go to his website (http://www.turningtwothemovie.com/#) and watch the trailer and see for yourself how incredible it is that this man is taking on his dreams to produce an independent feature film from the screenplay that came out of his head. If you love it like I do, I hope you will get on board, tell your friends and help us spread the word about a man following his dreams. And, if you feel really strongly about this, like I obviously do, and if you find any loose change in the couch cushions, send it his way!
Someday soon, we will go to the movies and watch the stories that spin from my brother’s head. Big dreams are the golden nuggets of life. I hope Jim inspires you to dig out the nuggets in yours and shine them up.
