I Have An Agent

i-have-an-agentThat’s what I said.  I obtained an agent about a week ago, and I couldn’t be happier.  I can finally see my art coming to life.

Thank You so much, Duane. Even though I sent you the wrong draft, you still saw the beauty.

Executive Film Producer Wanted

Poster_queryABSOLUTELY NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED!!!

What I wish to do is take one of my full length films and condense it down into a short film so I can produce the film to enter into film competitions.

When I first tried to raise the funds, the amount was way too high; however, my second crowdfunding campaign still did not receive donations.

What I need is roughly $7,500 to get this film produced.  What I can offer in return is major advertisement, and WHEN I sell the full length version of the film titled, “Sometimes Love” I will in return give you 5% of what it sells for.  So, even if it sells for 1 million, you Read more

wmbb_station_logoTomorrow night I make my big debut on WMBB News 13 at 10 pm (cst). I was interviewed by Greg Sherrod for Panhandle People. I wasn’t as nervous as I anticipated, however, I’m still a behind the scenes type of writer chic, but I will do it again to promote the film.

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 WILL Read more

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’m Read more

New Screenplay in the Works

screenplay-235x230It’s been a while since I’ve made a post.  Still nothing from either two of my celebrities I attempted to stalk, but it’s all good.  They have people I need to go through, and I somewhat understand that. 

So far, I’ve emailed out about fifty query letters in search of representation from either an agent or manager.  I did hear from a few people directing me to their website to fill out a survey of some sort, and I heard from someone who requested a synopsis of my script.  I sent it to him, and he responded hours later and said, “Thank you for the synopsis but this won’t work for the producer I had in mind”.  I thanked him for his time, and advised him if he changes his mind, I’m still in need of an agent.  It has only been about a week since I emailed the letters, so I’m patient, and I’m going to email a bit more this weekend.

I Have Tapped Out

dont give upSo after three days of stalking Common and Tika Sumpter, I finally tapped out.  I’m still not giving up, but I’ve decided to concentrate on searching for me a reputable agent, and continue with trying to finish my second screenplay, “TORN”.  I’m just as excited about this one as I am, “SOMETIMES LOVE”.  I already have a general idea who I would like to play in this one too.

No, I have not given up with pursuing Common and Tika, but I have to do it the right way.  As I said before, I cannot picture anyone else playing these roles for Sometimes Love, except Common and Tika, and I have not really thought about the worst-case scenario.  However, I’m moving my focus to obtaining representation.   Wish me luck!

My Script is in the ER

scriptdoctorWell, it is official now.  I’ve chosen the person to help me get my screenplay ready for market.  Ms. Lynne Pembroke over at Coverscript is whom I will be working with, and if all goes well, she will be my go to person for future scripts.  
I had it narrowed down to two, and the other people I felt wanted to turn my script into something stereotypical, and I told them I vow to stay away from that.  I chose Ms. Pembroke Read more
