Random Ramblings - 7.9.13

I'm still working on the Revelation rewrite. I'm never happy about how long it takes me to rewrite a script (Revelation's looking to be about 30 pages), but it's a necessary evil. And the script is getting better--a little leaner here, a little more poignant there. I have no idea when I'll be finished with it, nor have I set a deadline. It gets there when it gets there--and when it does, we'll take it from there. Shaundra and I talked about trying to get this film shot, edited and ready for South by Southwest 2014; that might still be a possibility.

I haven't gotten a chance to work on Shadowfox in a while. I'm antsy to get back at it, but there's only so much time in the day when you work a full-time job (even if it is from home)...

And you have other projects vying for your attention...

And you decide to go back to working out...

Basically, it's coming down to time management--delegating time to work on this story or that script. And it gets even harder when I have to force myself to go to bed "early" to get enough rest so my work in the gym becomes visible outside of it.

And if that weren't enough--I'm considering another run at a web series. Shaundra and I both agree that some of the ideas we had planned for The Life and Times of Abigail Waller are so good they need be shot and released, regardless of the show being cancelled. She suggested we drop them as a series of skits; I'm more in favor of doing them as a full-on series. And it's not like there'd a be a long delay in producing the pieces while I build another series--I already have a title in mind, along with a lead actor and actress and a title logo concept. The show would be shot with the same primary location we used for Abigail, and putting together the social media infrastructure would be a snap. All that's left is to pull the proverbial trigger. But let's be honest, producing a series is a lot more work than writing/producing short films here and there or kicking back and writing a comic book. If we were to go down that road again everybody would need to be on board and 100% interested and committed--which is why I'm going to mull this over a little bit longer before anything's official. I'm hot about the idea now--

Let's see if it survives the weekend.

I'm With the Band. Again.

This could be big...

Seems like Cougar's Marque Entertainment is once again rolling with a few collaborators we previously worked with on a couple of short films (which, unfortunately, never saw the light of day).  This is exciting because it gives us an instant clique--a core crew with which to produce content. The re-structured "coalition," while a bit leaner than before, is looking stronger than ever, and seeking to make an impact on the local film scene.

We look forward to helping make that impact...
