I wrote and directed my first short film, ONLY YOU, a little over a year ago with the help and generosity of several awesomely talented people. All issues I have with the film aside, I'm pretty proud of what we were able to accomplish. Here's the link to the film on YouTube, if you're interested in checking it out (be sure to click the HD option).

When I had finished the book I knew that no matter what Scott did, nor how he behaved, I must know it was like a sickness and be of any help I could to him and try to be a good friend. He had many good, good friends, more than anyone I knew. But I enlisted as one more, whether I could be of any use to him or not. If he could write a book as fine as "The Great Gatsby" I was sure that he could write an even better one. I did not know Zelda yet, and so I did not know the terrible odds that were against him. But we were to find them out soon enough.
