I Have An Agent

September 15, 2016

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.

 

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 Continue Reading…

ACBAs I wait for the Sponsors and Donations to pour in, I continue to work on other projects.  I have a screenplay titled, “All Circuits Busy” that I’ve entered into the Scriptapalooza screenplay competition.  I got off to a late start, and it needed a rewrite, but the worst thing that can happen is me losing $65, so I entered.

I’m also in the process of rewriting another screenplay that I haven’t touched since April, 2014 and decided to work on it again because I met a local woman in Panama City who I think would make an excellent main character.  I won’t name her yet because I just approached her with it last night and sent her the script.   The logline as follows:

hidden secrets3First, I want to thank Jacob “JB” Barrage of JB Barrage Entertainment, LLC for contacting me on Stage32.  I threw my hands up and had decided to stick to writing with hopes of someday being discovered because I had totally given up trying to produce one of my short films.

Anywho, I’m now in the process of Continue Reading…

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 how Continue Reading…

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 Continue Reading…

In June, the initial announcement from BET was that the TV premiere of Ava DuVernay’s 2012 Sundance Film Festival winning film (Best Director Award), “Middle of Nowhere,” was then set for this Wednesday, July 23, at 9/8c.

Earlier this month, the network moved the film’s debut back by about 10 days, to tomorrow, Saturday, August 2, starting at 8pm/7c.

So for the many of you who never got to see the film, and have been emailing me over the last year, asking if I know when it will premiere on BET,you’ll finally now have your opportunity to Continue Reading…
