Experimentation into Media Presentation
Kevin Yares, a father of six and married to his true love Kat, was an overworked and stickler for perfection electrical-mechanical engineer. Working completely in the automation field and with a FDA approved medical device under his belt he finally said enough.
Under the blessing and guidance from Kat, a storywriter herself and with many published credits, pushed him off the cliff to embark into a world beyond boring technical documentation. Crashing many times into the abyss below, small wings grew and a voice was found from his vast experiences in dealing with the wide range of human emotions from past colleagues and clients.
Classical training thrown aside from the college years of endless technical writing, the voice of storyteller began to emerge. “The format and structure of screen writing suits my creative side.” Says Yares. “Having the capability to allow the characters to speak to me and have their own voice is a huge driving force behind my work.”
Studying the works of other writers and analyzing films with his wife, combined with a large home library of screen writing resources, allows for the art and structure of writing.
“The children are grown and left the house, now for the first time is both of our chances to put to paper the stories that have developed in our minds. Living in a rural area gives us the chance to express our creative side, in between visits from the neighbors or working on the remodel of our home. Screenwriting has now become a new love, one of which I hope will never leave.”
“I also enjoy expressing my creative side in furniture and cabinetwork with the sawmill we purchased three years ago. Wood working for me has a strong relationship with writing. You can go to the woods, choose a tree and improve the forest by selective cutting. Take those logs back to the mill, saw that timber into boards and then use that precious wood and make something that will last beyond your own lifetime. I want to translate that skill into the art of story telling”
