It’s funny. I’m a producer on a feature independent film, but I’m also a writer trying to get a script into development with a different producer, one who has credits and, more importantly, contacts who have the ability to make a movie happen. So it’s surprising to see the business side of things from both perspectives. As a producer, I’m looking for ways to make my movie happen at little cost, and hope to sell the movie for great return. As a writer, I want my movie to cost more, because it means a bigger profile, a bigger footprint, and if the paycheck is good enough, it might attract a name.
Halle Berry, for instance. Who I have been eying for the main character in the script that’s currently in pseudo-development. And I have the barest, merest fraction of an in with her. I won’t go spilling my guts on what that connection is. But if successful, it could be a really amazing opportunity.
For now, tweak and tweak away, and continue to work on other stuff. Naturally, I’ve always got several projects in the works. Another script 3/4th complete, another script idea in the planning stages, semi-sorta co-writing a script with my little bro Noel, and another novel on the way.
Good stuff. Keep everyone posted, as always.
