I just received your screenplay. Will read it tonight. They called me downstairs and all the women were saying "who was the
cute guy that delivered this?" Now, Les, you are OK - but cute is not exactly the first word that springs to mind. Then I figured out its must have been Lucas who came by. Am I right? I watched a new movie last night - "Smart People". Have you seen it? It's good but it that can get MADE, we can do this! (Of course they did have Dennis Quaid, Sarah Jessica Parker, Thomas Hayden Church and Ellen Page in the cast.) But still - it was a very small character driven movie. And if those people hadn't been in it, there would have been no "character driven" to it. - Judi

Hi, Les. I'm glad to join the group! Pretty exciting venture, huh?

Big hug for you and Susan,
Janice

Yeah, it is really exciting, yet kinda odd, because normally when I work on any kind of film project only a few people are privy to it, and here our activities are out in the open. To what end? I don't know. Maybe we'll all learn something valuable. I hope so. BIG BIG SQUEEZE FROM ME AND SUSAN!

Figure this pic is better than any I can upload of my actual self. Thanks for the invite--I'm intrigued to see what happens next....

As for steelcob, it's a combo of Steele (me) and Cobb (Jeff) minus one letter apiece. I'm sure there's some symbolism there about sacrificing a little to make something bigger and better?

Les,
I'm embarrassed at this point to talk much about my desire to write a screenplay based on Carolyn's angel poems since I've done so little. I'm not "working on" it yet, only "thinking about" it. Luke has lent me the book How to Write a Movie in 21 Days. I have also been rereading Carolyn's poems, gathering magical images when I see them, and in my imagination casting the movie with well-known actors that would be my own first choice. On Luke's good advice, I have also been trying to envision about 6 key scenes. That's it so far.
Regards, Bill

Will do. I'll update my name and such as well. As many things as one has to sign up for these days, I've gotten in the habit of dropping minimal information in.

Great video! It has good energy. Thanks for putting that together.

hey les, I was wondering if on the up coming film buring in a lake of fire you needed any help as far as parts go. Im a good friend of matt and i told him that i was really looking for another part to do, so he said that i should ask you. I am the guy that was in plasma that was the more serious guy of the roomates.

Thanks for the approval kind sir. I'm glad to get aboard this ship with so many other fine artists. Matt has been telling me about it for a while, but I finally got around to it. And I'm glad I did.

As usual, you're making things happen - what an opportunity!! I'm going to have to go through my notebooks and find an idea that might make a good low-budget film.
At 9:20am on March 31, 2009, Hugh Spinks said…
Yeah, that's exactly what I'm thinking. I'm going through my notes now. I had forgotten how much I'd written about all of these ideas! I'm going to have find a storyline that's good and then weave those elements into the story.
At 9:34am on March 31, 2009, Hugh Spinks said…
Yep, I've actually been working on Anna and Godet over the past few days, but it's obviously not suitable for a low-budget production. I've been using note cards with Scrivener for A&G, but Avenir also has excellent support for plot development (and the Scrivener trial is about to expire - lol!). I tend to think in scenes, so that approach should work pretty well.
