State of the Address

Holy hell it's been a while since I've posted here.

No, I'm not dead, though I wouldn't blame you all for entertaining that thought.

So, you may be wondering why I've let this site marinate for a while. You also may not be wondering, but since no one forced you to open this page I'm going to assume acquiescence and carry on that path.

I have been working on various projects, and while none of them are close enough to completion to share, I would like to give you a rundown of a few of them to give you all a heads up of what is to come.

Here they are, in no particular order-

  • Recording the Audiobook version of COVINOUS
  • Finishing the first draft of pre://d.o.mai.n
  • Writing a script for a children's television pilot episode.
  • Creating a comic book for the above concept to help pitch the idea or to sell if the pilot isn't picked up.
  • Shooting a short Fantasy film (Think magic and medieval weaponry but set in the real world of a preteen) with my son that we have been planning for a while.

So, that is what I have been working on. I am going to finish revising the script for the Short Film I am going to be working on with Skyler within the next few days and post it here, as it was originally rife with copyrighted characters. (It was originally written when he was much younger, and it involved his toys coming to life and attacking him using weapons that are.....well.....let's just say that George Lucas has lawyers that are better paid than mine. Wait, I don't have any.) It was originally titled "Snuggles of the Sith", if you need any further indication as to why I chose to bring George into it. 

I may actually post up the original script, and then the revised version. I think there's value in exploring the evolutionary process a work takes from beginning to completion, so I will post it and explain why it will no longer work in greater detail. My son actually pointed out two of those reasons to me just tonight. One is a character that needed to be eliminated because the actress that would have played her, "doesn't love me anymore", lol. And the other is that the script called for a two story home, which we no longer have. 

So rewrites are necessary, but such is the course in Hollywood. I see it becoming a fun side project to do with my son, and hopefully he will find something in it that he really enjoys doing, that he can pursue for a career down the road. At the very least we will have a blast making it (and the possible sequels).

Well, that's it for now, I better get back to rewriting that script.
