I decided instead of making this site into DawnMarieKelleycom, I wanted to keep it as my toy and let DawnMarieKelley.com rise as a separate creature. I am two things as an artist, my silly creative self (this) and the part that has to be a keen master of my own career (DawnMarieKelley.com). And so DawnMarieKelley.com which will also be the bed for the developing Shatter the Ceiling Productions is now in the process of forming it’s identity.
“Death in My Hands” written by Me and edited by me and my audio 1 team (Jahannah Kincheloe, Rachel Armiger, Elena Fialkoff). We used a little bit of music by Lady Gaga (“Americana”) and various songs from the soundtrack to the game ‘Red Dead Redemption’.
“The Peculiar Such Thing” is a folk tale in an anthology called “The People Could Fly” – it was edited by me to make the content more audio-fun. Edited by me and my audio 1 team (Jahannah Kincheloe, Rachel Armiger, Elena Fialkoff). Features the song “Cantina Rag” by Jackson F. Smith of the FreeMusicArchive.org
SFX have been gathered for both stories from FreeSound.org, the Towson University SFX Library, and YouTube sounds.
So for a long time, this website has been a wonderful playground, but as I approach the end of my college career I decided it’s time to reflect more of me and less of JK Rowling, much as I love her. So RhondaWeasley.com will be becoming DawnMarieKelley.com very soon. This will include a change in layout, a dropping of some content, and (hopefully) the birth of some new content.
Felt like watching Star Wars, went back to Episode I, decided to look up Lloyd on the internet, as I wonder what he looked like now.

So I’ve loss my first 5lbs within my first month of Chalean Extreme (this is my second round of the program and it’s always given me succcess when I use it properly). It’s got me thinking again about weight-loss as a bussiness and how it often fails the customer by first being unrealistic and second making the ‘science’ of weight loss sound more complicated than it is. While Beachbody has great products for home exercise and fitness, even the infomercials play on unrealistic expectations. Often people with HUGE weightless and significant success have done the beachside programs for more then the first 30, 60, 90 days.
I lost 5lbs! Yup, started a Chalean extreme exercise cycle about a month ago. I am now 5lbs lighter. Not much, I know. But I’m happy to know changes are coming.
My sci-fi script Rachel West also lives again. My unfinished Rachel West script has been moving forward thanks to some motivating words on writing from Josh Weadon in an article I read. One word in particular. Finish. The best book/movie script/play in the world is worth nothing if left unfinished. And as Chalene Johnson says in ‘Extreme Motivation’ – fit people ‘do’, they don’t wait for things to be done for them. ‘Doing’ applies to more than just exercise, I make it my thought on life in general. The weight won’t disappear on it’s own and the script won’t finish itself. If you want something you ‘do’ everything to get it and no matter how big the goal, there’s always some small next step you can take to make it a reality.
So I gave up have up having a smart phone (my phone makes calls and text, that is all) and got a wifi tablet (a Dell streak tablet running Honeycomb) at a pretty good deal and I’m writing this post on the Android app, which is pretty cool. So this post is mostly to test that. I have been working away on my stop motion film, but pay-work is at the moment slowing the process of art to a crawl.
However I have been exercising a lot, thinking of starting a video blog or something on that.
New, very overdue video to post. This is a mini-documentary I did on ‘Really You Should Use Bullets’, a Graduate Show I helped out on at Towson University.
So I’m editing a project in Final Cut today and I really don’t understand the Final Cut Fan Boys, Premiere is soooo much better that I wish I had skipped buying a Mac and just invested in a nice Windows Computer that could run Premiere. However, this way I can run Final Cut Express if I have to and bring it into Final Cut Pro at school if I’m sharing a project with Final Cutters. (The Film Program I’m in is FCP7). I personally really like Adobe for one HUGE reason, when I’m trying to get a BASIC editing project set upin the timeline, before any fine tunning I might do, I’m not constantly stopped by Final Cut’s inability to show me my project as I edit it WITHOUT rendering 5 bazzillion times!!! I’m stopped over and over again by Final Cut’s ‘unrendered’ screen. The only reason I’m glad I have the Mac is compatibility with other Mac users on projects, but my NLE of choice is def Premiere.
