Film Production: All Circuits Busy

I’ve decided to take matters (once again) into my own hands instead of waiting around for Hollywood to take interest in my work.  As of now, I have “All Circuits Busy” being professionally rewritten by Julie Paupe, owner of Scriptwriterhelp.com.  Julie has helped me before, and she’s an expert.

My plan is toContinue Reading →

At My Summer Home

Summer House ICome and visit me at my summer home, located at Hidden Secrets Movie. This is where I will be spending most of my summer, making numerous posts. Sure I will stop in here from time to time, and drop a line or two, but in the mean-time, most of my summer will be spent over at Hidden Secrets Movie page.
Too many social media pages to manage, but it’s not like I get a lot of visitors here. Anywho, click the link above and come check out what I’ve done with the place. Hope to see you soon!!!!

Working on New Screenplay Masterpiece

scI’m outlining another masterpiece that I suppose to finish by the end of March, but basically just starting.  It’s another story that has been singing in my head for close to a year, and it’s time to get serious.   I am a big time procrastinator but once I start…

It’s another high-concept comedy, and absolutely no hints will be given.  All I can say, it’ll probably be controversial.  I’m still waiting to receive my latest script, “All Circuits Busy”, soContinue Reading →

My First Screenplay Pitch

PPH_Script_Frame_6I had my first “Verbal Pitch” last week via Skype with Cider Mill Productions, and I had a video malfunction. He could hear, but he could not see me.

Although, I was as nervous as a Virgin at a prison rodeo (Blanch from Golden Girls), the individual I pitched to, said I did well for my first time. However, he passed on reading my script. No biggie, my first time for this script “All Circuits Busy”, and it will not be the last because I believe I have a winner.

So, I’ve decided to place my screenplay into “rehab”, so the next time I pitch, I WILLContinue Reading →

Plans to Produce My Screenplay Short

Film_ProductionWOW, is all I can say. No, it isn’t. I posted on Stage32.com’s forum a few days ago, searching for someone to analyze my five (5)-page screenplay short, “Love Appeal”. An experienced Horror Director/Writer (Shane W.) offered to analyze it free of charge.

This is what he had to say, “Hi Dawn, Read through the screenplay. It’s a pretty unique story, not something done to my knowledge, and the quasi-silent film feel is an interesting touch. It has a nice feel to it, and it’s a good story.”

He gave me a couple of recommendations on howContinue Reading →

Confessions of a Screenwriter

brain-mazeI have this amazing story inside my head.  The title alone says a lot, but for some strange reason, when I sit down to type or write, I produce nothing, because it’s all scrambled. The words are in a maze with a blocked exit and an extremely high wall.

I don’t have writers block, I’m just a blocked writer. Maya Angelou said it best, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” She may have been speaking on another level, but not much of a difference.

I’ve written screenplays before, (two at the same time) and the words flowed like Niagara Falls in the summer.  Three Screenplays, two outlines (again, at the same time), three shorts, numerous log-lines of stories I have yet to start.

I told myself, move on to the next screenplay, but the truth is, the story I’m trying to convey is not the issue, it’s M.E. My mind is restless when I’m awake, when I’mContinue Reading →
