After a break on other projects it's time to hit the keyboard again and try and get Redemption knocked out. Really love this piece. Hope I can get this one up, it has a really good heart to the story.
New ideas are on the table at the moment. Will be interesting to see what pans out!
Redemption, a new script dealing with the street kids scene is coming along nicely. Should be a powerful piece when it is finished, and hopefully shine the light on a subject that needs some airing.
Deadly Choices is being read by another Production Company... Could be a very exciting time for this little piece!
A very, very quick turn around and notes are back for Uriel! A bit of a rewrite, but relevant points. It will definitely make it a stronger piece.
Uriel has been sent off for script notes! I am looking forward to getting these back!
Deadly Choices has just had a full rewrite after extensive notes! (Previously Water Deep.) I have gone back to the old version and can hardly recognize it anymore. What a transformation! It has been a excruciating task, but worth all the blood sweat and tears... And there were a few! Thank you Luke!
Notes are back in for Water Deep. After a very lengthy session with the script assessor, a lot of very in-depth notes are going to be implemented. It will change the script dramatically, but will make it a great deal stronger... Name change as well!
Water Deep has just been sent off for script notes!
Next round of funding begins for, A life unexpected, The Franz Stampfl story. Another big push could see it over the line!

Sally and a small crew have left for the UK to film the first of the interviewees. Sir Roger Banister, Sir Chris Chataway as well as Franz's relations in his homeland of Vienna. Very exciting times, especially when you realize you are about to speak with the man who first broke the 4 minute mile.
