Donald L. Vasicek – Alfrech “Heap of Birds”, Cheyenne on location in Clinton, Oklahoma during interview for the award-winning documentary film, “The Sand Creek Massacre”

“Donald is a born leader who can inspire people to really make a difference.””
Thomas Duffy

“Donald is not only a talented filmmaker but a higly supportive friend. He shows care and concern in both his film/work and personal support. Donald is also a well-centered person which makes him an excellent filmmaker. Know yourself, know your work! Donald knows both.”
-Dr. Cynthia Clark
Forensic Psychologist/Actress

“Just watched your film on Maxmouth.com. Speechless! You really did allow their voices to be the story. A good film, as you well know, is one that creates powerful emotions and Sand Creek did just that. I thought the list of names of the Cheyenne and Arapaho killed was the highlight. Seeing their names scrolling before us gives them life and substance—-something history never did. Thanks so much for this important film.”

“”Donald is a superb filmmaker and writer who would be exceptional for any entrepreneurial project! I give him my highest recommendation ”

-Professor Janis Judson
Hood University

Your career in film and as a writer, inspired me to write my novel “Presidential Indiscretions.”
-Dr. Turner Joy

“We all could learn so much from you Don. if we write our research publications in a more understandable way using simpler words but at the same time in a way so that the reader is interested, it would help science and human knowledge. We could attract more interest. More people would be interested in science, engineering, and medicine. However, we write our publications using specific scientific languages, which are not easily understood by other scientists and engineers in different areas. For instance, we have cell phones and laptops, however, we do not know how these devices function.”
-Dr. Orkid Coskuner
Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Neurosciences Institute, University of Texas at San Antonio

“Your article looks amazing!”

“Great Thoughts on Success

-Lisa Smith, Editor, SuccessStory.com

“Don, you’re an inspiration to other screenwriters out there! A great model as well.”
-Mario Leone 

“I thank Don Vasicek who referred me to a reference book I never knew existed. And he did this quickly and clearly. Certainly he is knowledgeable and polite as well.”
Demetrius

“Award winning film I voiced A few years back: I was called upon by producer Donald L. Vasicek to voice a very somber narration for “The Sand Creek Massacre.” Don emailed me a few days ago telling me it had won numerous prestigious awards and is being distributed in North America and Asia. It’s played at festivals in all states and recently was placed in the Smithsonian Institution. Needless to say, I was thrilled and very proud to be part of this. The whole film runs about 20 minutes and is quite compelling. My narration part begins at 16:17 on the audio player. Here’s a link to the film.

-John Miles

“I had my book re-edited by an Award Winning Film Writer. Donald L. Vasicek is an awesome and remarkable man. I also received a wealth of information for marketing, not just a book, but my story. As my story is the story of many others, I hope to play my part for all women, men, and our children to Walkin’ Tall through life.”
Mary Towns

“Hi Donald, I am so relieved to be connected to you, I don’t know why but when I see your pic it has a positive physical effect on me, I feel like we speak the same language, so difficult for me to find in another and I could be wrong, but I don’t think so. As time goes on I can reveal more as I see in you someone I can go to and not be turned away without receiving an honest and accurate reply.”
-Lillian

“8.20.13

Donald,

I’ve spent a lot of time researching who to pursue to bring on board. In each case, my first pick said yes. Literally nobody has said no to me and since speaking with you I have the hair/make-up key from the movie ‘Precious’, and the newest ‘Indiana Jones’;
an editor that has been editing around 4 movies a year for several years, and a locations manager in NYC that basically takes care of the schedule with me. It’s like I decide what I want, and in 250 words or less I receive it.”

-George Payne

“I watched “The Sand Creek Massacre” this morning and casted my vote for
it. It is  very moving and yet so sad to see what our Native-American
brothers and sisters had to needlessly endure. I’m very moved, and
would like to thank Mr. Don Vasicek for a documentary that we can pass
down through the generations to educate, remember and honor the people
who lived in this country first.”

Sincerely,

Debbi Mouradjian

“I have known Don Vasicek for over 5 years. He worked with
me on my book, “Me Jane, Not You!” During our time working together,
he has mentored and tutored me on how to write effectively.
Detail, format, genre and structure oriented, he pushed me to my
mental limits.

“It resulted in becoming an accomplished writer, both fiction and non-fiction.
“Me Jane, Not You!”, an auto-biography, is now completed. He is presently
working with me on my novel, “The Flying Dutchman.”

“I highly recommend Don as a writer, a tutor, and a mentor.
His professionalism is only transcended by his keenness of
mind to serve his client in order to go the highest level with
their writing.

“He is simply the best and loves what he’s doing.”

“Hello Don,

“My name is Norman and I’m a published South African writer who is attempting to make the transition into screenwriting. I wanted to drop you a mail to thank you for the wealth of information and knowledge that I’ve gained from your website. I’ve read everything from Syd Field, David Trottier and Chris Vogler and even though they teach you the basics of structure and story telling, there are so many gaps that I’m only now learning, thanks to you.

“Even though I may never afford your script services, what you offer for free has made me feel that I’ve somehow cheated you out of a service that everyone else charges for. I’m recommending your site to everyone I come across.”

Thank you again.”
-Norman.

“Thank you, Don, for your very quick response, and for your advice. The teacher worked in the industry years ago, so I was thinking she may be a little out of touch perhaps. Your comments were very helpful.”
-Ingrid

“The Sand Creek Massacre was just one incident from the centuries-long genocide of the native peoples in America. And, it continues to this day. We commend Don Vasicek for his work in accurately documenting this historical event and for his work to bring attention to the atrocities that have and continue to face this entire race of people in America.”

“Wow-Thank you Don! I was a little apprehensive of getting an answer, but your timeliness, knowledge and genuine concern blew away the lack of expectation. I had room for a full blown expectation and would still have been well-serviced! I will certainly follow up with you. I’m considering, as a gift for my dad, having it typed in computer format, professional graphics, and one of your packages. Thanks for the direction and encouragement.”
-Lucy

“Thanks Don!”

“Don was wonderful! He really helped improve my screenwriting knowledge. I highly recommend his expertise if anyone is having problems with their screenplay!”

Dear Don,

“I just viewed your powerful documentary, The Sand Creek Massacre.
I can’t get the words out of my mind, question to Chivington from
a soldier: “Should we kill the children?” answer, “Nits make lice.”

“This horror needs to be exposed. I am so honored that you sent this
to me. We are meeting this Monday evening and I will make the
proposal for a film festival. I want this to be first on the list.
Meanwhile, I will circulate this to our members for review over
the weekend.

“I profoundly feel that this information has terrific relevance for
today.

“We can’t let this continue to slide!

“Again, I am so honored. I thank you so much.
