Quick Update

Getting the short film together at the moment, so not much to blog about specifically, except to say that Red Planet news will be very soon indeed. Am expecting an announcement any day now, possibly sooner! Sorry for the delay. I know many of you have been keen to find out what's happened so you shouldn't have to wait too much longer (I know, I know, but please, bear with us). For random updates on what I'm doing, you can follow me on Twitter, if that's your thang. Yes, it's trivial and distracting, but isn't that the point?

In other news, there are a couple of screenwriting courses coming up at the Lighthouse in Brighton which some of you may be interested in:-

Dont know if I have said this already Danny, but good luck with the short mate.

You got any teasers on what it is about??

My partner and I have decided to take the plunge also and are hopefully shooting our short this September (providing we can get some of the financing from our Gvt). Fingers crossed.

Hi Charles

It's about a woman who tries to keep her family together when her son falls ill after he's bitten by mysterious creature.

I'll put up a website with synopsis/cast/crew/trailer in due course.


Scaramanga said...

Sounds intriguing. What kind of length 10-15 mins??

I look forward to the updates and I hope it is as rewarding an experience as it should be.

Around 10 mins. It is exciting. Daunting, too, but mainly exciting.
