Dreading to start this new writing class or “re-writing” class that is… They say the key to writing a good script is in the “re-writing”! I don’t dread class because I think its going to be bad, in fact, I know it will be good for me… I just dread it because it “class”, school y’know? I gradutated high school a lifetime ago and didn’t go to college… Well, I did go to junior college for all of 1 day. Santa Monica city college, two classes, “drawing” & “photography”… No hot chicks in either class, dropped out in my first week… I think SMC may still owe me for a refund from dropping out so quick… I just think, maybe I don’t like “school”. But I must admit, I like when I’m in class, it makes me get back into the mind set of working on a craft… This time its writing, which I do love doing, but don’t do nearly as much as I should. I haven’t even looked at my play since the reading of the first draft months ago. But starting this class and rereading my play & beginning to write new pieces, its nice to revisit these character’s and hear them talking in my head again. I guess like most artist, I am a procrastinator and need deadlines to fulfill my potential. Looking forward to going through the process of rewriting “Midnight Makeout Session” and maybe even get me inspired to blog more!

One time leader of the Lost Boys & Prince of the Fire Nation...
With a career spanning over two and a half decades, DANTE BASCO is a Hollywood actor who has become a cult classic and pioneering figure in Asian American cinema. He was first introduced in Steven Spielberg's fairytale movie Hook, as "Rufio", the leader of the Lost Boys. He quickly jumped to leading roles like Newline's Take the Lead, opposite Antonio Banderas, and The Debut, which became the voice of a Filipino American generation. 20th Century Fox executives were so mesmerized by the uniqueness of Dante's look and ability that they gave him a development deal for his own series and he starred in a pilot for Touchstone/ABC, The Chang Family Saves the World, written and produced by John Ridley and directed by Paris Barclay. Ever versatile, he's "Jake Long" in Disney's animated series American Dragon: Jake Long as well as "Prince Zuko" in Nickelodeon's phenomenal hit, Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Dante is the founder of one of the largest weekly poetry venue in the country, "Da Poetry Lounge" in Los Angeles and he has also shared his spoken word poetry on Russell Simmons' HBO Def Poetry Jam. He has also begun writing and producing his own features with his production company Kinetic Films, including Hang Loose, a (hilarious buddy) comedy with YouTube sensation KevJumba, winning the 2012 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival Special Jury Prizes for "Best Actor" and "Best Newcomer" respectively.
From breakdancing in the streets of San Francisco to starring in movies on the silver screen, Dante Basco has become one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood and truly an Asian American icon.
