Relax. Your favorite monkey is still here. Still bashing the old qwerty, though, must admit, not very frequently on the blog.
Which can be bad for you, I know.
The Doctors reckon you should visit your blog for a concentrated sitting at least once a day.
What? Oh, sorry, that's bog.
Sorry to see so many fave bloggers signing off, but on the other hand glad they're so busy with paying projects.
Actually getting paid to write, whatever next?
A script you've written actually being filmed?
Come on...I know fantasy is our business, but really....
Still coming close but no cigar.
Have had very good feedback on a few projects.
Two of which I'm re-writing whilst respecting the notes, two just seem to be ever changing policy/economic/timing decisions and one which just seems to be love being read by everyone who hasn't actually like, you know, got a cheque book. Or a studio. Or even a camera.
One still expectantly awaiting reply...
But networking and getting there is half the fun, all the experience and worth the education.
I've responded to their requests for shorts and posted two of mine on the site for feedback, funding(!) and a rush of applications to film them(!!!).
I was requested to feedback on a new project by a top scriptwriter you all know. Flattered that my opinion was sought, I have sent back my notes in the hope they help. He'll probably never speak to me again!
Great to see Lucy, Danny, Tim and Robin are still keeping up the high standards of info, advice and opportunities over at their gaffs and that young Jase, Michelle, Chip, & Ollie are chasing Paul, Danny and James up the slippery script writery stardom ladder to success!
http://www.thewriterstale.com/scr.html Six scripts from the great Sir Russell T. Davies, OBE, including "Midnight" a true Master class (pardon the pun) in tight, gripping writing. Pure Class. Top education. Read them!
Plot, Characters, all 3 acts in half a minute...Jennifer Shiman hilariously re-imagines two hour movies in just thirty seconds, and still retains the major plot points! Pitching masterclass for when that Exec says " You've got half of minute of my time."
