The FineDay Academy is being developed as an online learning center. 

For example, here’s a post from the academy offering the reason why the July 4th 1776 revolution is important for everyone.

Among the other subjects that will be explored by the academy are esoteric research topics used to inform our Sci-Fi book Songbird Astral Adventures. The topics are linked on the Songbird homepage.

You can see excerpts from a video tour of the FineDay Academy Seaside campus in the FineDay Multimedia demo video and in the promo video for our Sci-Fi novel.

The book promo shows the campus, because in some ways, the novel Songbird: Astral Adventures, serves as the “origin story” of the Academy.

Once the academy has the resources needed, it will present Points in Time, an educational project building on history quiz questions developed with the help of FineDay Patreon members.

The academy also has the FineDay Cafe a campus center for various meetings, events and celebrations.

Finally, here’s information about the Academy’s Mission, Guiding Principals and Founder.

FineDay artwork is for sale in three collections:

The HISTORY COLLECTION
In 1963 FineDay founder David Watkinson went to Washington D.C. for President Kennedy’s funeral. When David returned, he was so moved by a photo of the slain president’s son saluting his fallen father’s casket that David painted a water color version of the photo.

David hopes his Museum Station painting may evoke a sense of mystery about the history of the huge statue being transported.

The Scroll of Time is a symbolic representation of the last 14 billion years of the spiraling looping path that the Earth and solar system follow, as we rotate around the center of the Milky Way galaxy.

The HAPPINESS COLLECTION
We offer various formats for the FineDay motto “Learn from the Past, Live in the Present and Create the Future with Love” which includes the suggestions: • Make peace with the past • Laugh whenever you can • Know the joy of helping others.

The HUMOR COLLECTION
In the 1980’s, David Watkinson started as a story analyst and screenwriter, feature film Assistant Director and 2nd Unit Director, then transitioned in the early 1990’s to creating on-set graphics, animations and videos for features and TV shows.

During the transition period, David drew and painted some cartoons about Sci-fi subjects, which comprise all but one of the items in the humor collection. The single digital cartoon is a recent one encouraging good deeds.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

The photo shows David in his office at the Fox studios in LA where he worked on the TV series Bones and Seth MacFarlane’s The Orville. More about that later.

As a child in Southern New Jersey in the 1950’s, David spent a lot of time creating art outside of school, while excelling in the sciences in school.

After taking art classes in Philadelphia during high school, his paintings were chosen to represent the city in a world tour. As a result, he was torn between becoming an artist or going to college to study one of the sciences.

Having been through the Great Depression, David’s parents wanted him to pursue a more stable career than artist.  So David won a Navy academic scholarship to the University of North Carolina to major in physics and mathematics.

David chose UNC Chapel Hill to be close to his brother, who was attending nearby Duke University. At Duke, David visited Dr. J. B. Rhine’s Parapsychology laboratory, the world’s first lab to scientifically study the paranormal. David’s interest in parapsychology led him to switch majors to psychology.

After years of training in the Navy with the intention of becoming a navy fighter pilot, an illness forced David to leave the program.

His interest in paranormal research eventually led him to the San Francisco bay area, where he had amazing psychic experiences, as well as an out of body experience.

As a result, David moved to LA intending to work in Hollywood writing about the paranormal.

He started as a story analyst for the legendary literary agent Irving Lazar, who represented famous writers like Ernest Hemingway, Truman Capote, and Tennessee Williams.

After his first screenplay was optioned, David put his second screenplay on hold, when recruited to work on feature films using his skills as an artist and programmer.

He began a long career creating animations, video and graphics for scenes where an actor interacts with a screen. His work has been featured in movies like the first two Men In Black movies, two Batman movies, and over 30 more feature films, plus the entire run of the TV shows mentioned earlier.

Meanwhile, David pursued his other interests. In 1990, a national magazine published his interviews with the leading scientists in the development of virtual reality.

It was a subject that led David to physicist Tom Campbell, who proposed the theory that we’re living in a virtual reality simulation created by an all-encompassing unified field of consciousness.

Campbell’s conclusion came after he learned to do out of body travel, while helping to establish the Monroe Institute.

David helped instigate a project to test Campbell’s theory. Subsequently, David was credited as a co-author along with a JPL physicist and a Caltech mathematician on Campbell’s paper in a physics journal proposing quantum physics experiments, which are now being performed at three universities.

In his spare time, David also pursued his interest in teaching. For example, he taught classes at UCLA Extension and was a Visiting Assistant Professor at the UCLA Graduate School of Film.

As a result, David is building an online school The FineDay Academy as a companion piece to his novel Songbird: Astral Adventures, which references the academy.
