    Guest Post: Matthew Chapman "How Do You Make Sure You Are HAPPY With Your Film?"

    Some subjects are truly difficult to confront on film, both from a personal and public perspective. Creativity generally requires confrontations -- with oneself, others, and the world at large.

    A couple of weekends back I was checking out Chuck Wendig's blog terrible minds. I was blown away -- and I know Chuck already. He's the co-writer on Lance Weiler's "H.i.M.
