The theme for Eyes to Your Soul is sex addiction and the double standard placed on women for their sexual behavior in comparison to men. This TV show also addresses the challenges women face in male-dominated workplaces. The protagonist is female and Asian.

Grateful to see my horror pilot teleplay, Eyes to Your Soul make Coverfly’s Red List and rank at 16 in its Horror 1-Hour Television category.

My TV pilot teleplay, Eyes to Your Soul is a semifinalist for the The Script Lab screenplay competition in collaboration with Coverfly! As a result, it made CoverFly’s Red List and ranked #16 for its ranking for 1-hour horror television scripts.

Last year, I pivoted from writing novels to writing screenplays because I can execute several stories a year, and I love the rhythm and pace of it. Plus, my end goal for each story is to produce it into a movie as a writer and producer and hopefully a director if I can get mentored.

Nezuko from the anime Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba


This past week I started watching Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, an anime about a boy Tanjiro who begins his quest to fight demons after a demon slaughters his family and turns his sister Nezuko into one.

Pictured on my computer screens is Nezuko to inspire me to keep writing my screenplay and novels on top of my legal and business work. So far I’ve written 3 spec screenplays (sci-fi and fantasy, competition and lifestyle, and erotic thriller), and 2 unpublished novels (paranormal thriller and historical action and adventure).

BRZRKR


BRZRKR comic book by Keanu Reeves (co-writer), Matt Kindt (co-writer), Ron Garney (artist), and Bill Crabtree (producer).

I bought 2 A copies and 1 variant copy of the first issue of BRZRKR, a comic book series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7eAMfnXh3U. Keanu came up with the story in 2017 and teamed up with writer Matt Kindt and artist Ron Garney. Netflix has already cut a deal with them to produce a live action film series and an animated series. I can’t wait to read issue 2 and watch both TV series. Keanu is developing his own cinematic world. He is an inspiration for me to work even harder and better on my storytelling and personal growth universe under Positive Masters, my multimedia and e-commerce brand. I consider Keanu as one of my virtual mentors. He has an unbelievable work ethic and is constantly reinventing himself. Importantly, he is kind. I would love to work with him in the future. I created a character in my third screenplay with him in mind to act it. It’s a Sci-Fi and Action and Adventure movie. All of my screenplays (3 spec screenplays: Lifestyle and Competition, Erotic Thriller, and Sci-Fi and Fantasy) and books (2 unpublished novels: Paranormal Romance and Historical Fiction) will be under my Positive Masters banner at https://positivemasters.com. I will do my best to finish the third draft of this screenplay this month of April 2021. Although my work on my screenplays have been taking up so much of my time since July 3, 2020, I will do my best to create more short-term content for Positive Masters. I’m so pumped up!!! Let’s keep going hard!!!

1: Positive Masters Show – You Can Bring People Together Through Your Art – Audiogram


In this clip of Episode 1 of the Positive Masters Show podcast, I mention how you can bring people together through your art. Art forms such as novels, poetry, theatre, movies, music, designs, and drawings, can bring out the emotions of your audience and make them connect with your story that may have a deep message on issues like war, discrimination, racism, physical violence, verbal abuse, bullying, suicide, and mental health. If you can make someone care about your character when they normally wouldn’t but for your art, that’s huge! Now they have empathy and compassion for that character and all the people that fits into that category of your character. Through your art, you can spread love and peace!

I’ve got you locked in my mental clock.


I've got you locked in my mental clock. A romantic poem based on my first novel.

I’ve got you locked in my mental clock. A romantic poem based on my first novel.

I’ve got you locked in my mental clock.

When I meditate, I go back to our first date.

A different time that no longer exists.

I say I don’t need anyone; yet, my dream persists.

I step into the stream where I last danced with you.

If everything isn’t true, then why do I still love you?

– +positive masters+, Jon Riki Karamatsu, 4/23/2020 – ✒

This love poem was inspired by my first novel (unpublished) about a young politician, Ken who’s miserable with the adversity in his career until he meets a young woman, Kaylee in a coffee shop in his dream – only this is not a dream but a place where lost souls are trapped. As he helps Kaylee to heal the emotional pain of her past, he soothes the struggles of his own soul. However, if Ken saves Kaylee from her suffering, he will lose her forever. To make things worse, there are dark forces who don’t want Ken to learn the secrets of their world. 📖

One of my favorite things to do is write fiction and poems that has a romantic element in them. Love can bring great passion; yet, it can quickly turn dark with sorrow. That’s why in many novels and movies, you’ll see a love interest in the story for that dramatic effect. So long as you can see romance as an adventurous journey rather than something that has to remain in cloud nine forever, you can appreciate its beauty. ❤

Creativity makes your soul happier.


Creativity makes your soul happier.

Creativity makes your soul happier.

I recently watched The Florida Project on Netflix, a movie by Sean Baker about the innocence of kids making the most of their lives despite being poor. I cried. No matter what problems you have, there’s so many other people facing tougher challenges. What an amazing movie, with both playful humor and heart-wrenching drama!


My heart melts for the children going through so many difficulties. Resiliently, many of these kids are still able to find ways to have fun. In my second novel, I wrote about the adversities the children in Iraq faced after the invasion by the U.S. I’m still pitching this story to the literary industry.

I feel for all of you going through tough times. I believe some of your greatest work can come from your emotional pain. If you have something creative you enjoy working on, whether it be drawing, creative writing, craftsmanship, fixing-up vehicles, acting, singing, filmmaking, music production, interior decorating, making crafts, cooking, developing games, photography, software programming, sculpturing, pottery, or anything that sparks joy in your soul, keep doing it when you have time. In fact, make time for it. Creativity makes your soul happier. I love you guys!

With Warmest Aloha,

Cyborg She


I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started to watch “Cyborg She” or “Boku no kanojo wa saibôgu,” a romantic movie in which Jiro, a lonely university student meets a beautiful and interesting woman who turns out to be a Cyborg from the future who lacks manners and emotions.

It was really good that I cried at the ending part of the movie.

The movie was written and directed by Jae-young Kwak and starred Haruka Ayase and Keisuke Koide.

I loved this song, “Yamaoku Shounen no Koi Monogatari” by Nakagawa Izumi from the scene where they go back in time and visit his hometown during his childhood.

Make A Law Alive Through The Arts


IMG_20170511_011847_931

When you pass a law as a politician, people will say you did it for votes.

When you argue the law as a lawyer, they will say you did it to win.

But when you make a law alive through the arts, people will see it is from your heart.

Our Meal For Tomorrow (僕らのごはんは明日で待ってる)


I went on my own to see the movie “Our Meal For Tomorrow” (僕らのごはんは明日で待ってる) based on the novel by Maiko Seo at the Hawaii International Film Festival on April 4, 2017 at Regal Dole Cannery Stadium 18 Theatre, Honolulu, Hawaii.  I saw my Uncle Glenn and Aunty Jo Ann Matsumoto at the movie too.  It was very good!

500 Days of Summer


“500 Days of Summer” is one of my all-time favorite movies. I like it because it’s so real, filled with all of life’s strengths and weaknesses. As much as we want our heart to act, sometimes it won’t, no matter how hard we try. On the opposite side, sometimes we fall in love, but the other person just can’t feel the same no matter how much that person cares for you. In the end, it hurts so much between the two of you. This movie is based on an experience that the screenwriter went through. The song “Sweet Disposition” by The Temper Trap really hits you in the right emotional spot and matches the movie.

When you know.


A couple of days ago, while taking a break from my work, I watched the ending part of the movie “Serendipity,” which I haven’t seen in awhile. Here’s the song “When You Know” by Shawn Colvin with clips of the movie in the video.
