We can talk about the process of creative writing and publishing.
About meI have written and published two novels: Neišsipildymas and Stasys Šaltoka: Vieneri Metai which is translated into English under the title Cold East.
Two years ago me and Justas Janauskas came up with the idea for online community which later turned into Qoorio.
For those who want to travel to Japan or miss the land of the rising sun badly, here is a beautiful short novel one could read in few hours 📙❤️
"Before the Coffee gets cold" is a book even my husband thoroughly enjoyed and he doesn't enjoy fiction so often 😂🙄. It's a gem of a story that will blow some fresh Tokyo breeze your way.
The story is very simple and unique at the same time - if you could go back in time just for a short while who would you want to see? What would you say before the coffee gets cold?
Even though the story explores the past, Toshikazu Kawaguchi inspires his audience to appreciate the present.
This is a book written more than thousand years ago by a young woman in Kyoto ❤️
"Pillow Book" by Sei Shonagon reaches us from the depth of long forgotten era, but it's not a grand epic story, but rather funny notes and anecdotes a witty charming lady wrote for her own amusesment.
But it's also a very humbling to realise how universal human experience is. In imperial Court of Kyoto same as contemporary New York, Kuala Lumpur or Vilnius people laugh, tease each other, hide lovers and watch the beauty of nature to unfold.
Highly recommend reading it while watching the spring blossom and slowly mature into summer 🌸🌸🌸
Making your first movie
Do not spend too much time waiting to start. It will always seem that you can be better prepared or find more funding. In the beginning your vision is the strongest - just go with it and work every difficulty along the way. Trust me, it will be harder to finish than to start.
Do I need to go to a film school?
Common question in early film-making path: Do I need the classic education or can I start learning by doing it? I can share the pros and cons of both.
Good movies drive us forward. Interested in creating something or testing your idea? Want to find a focus for it? Write me up!
