January has found me
busy ghost writing a novel. I’m on a tight deadline – it’s due
in early March – so I’m having to be very disciplined. Writing
every day is essential to complete a task such as this.
I’ve also started work
on an “Exorcist” style thriller for a client. The planning is
done, I start writing scenes today!
Finally, I’ve been kept
busy with a script analysis and a translation/proofreading job. What I enjoy about these assignments is the opportunity to read different scripts
from around the world.
I was in Berlin for the Berlin
Film Festival (The Berlinale) in mid-February. It’s a fantastic networking event, and along with
Cannes, the best place in Europe to do business. While I was there I was able to make some great
contacts, find an entertainment attorney and a casting director for two projects, and attract
considerable interest in “Rabid” from sales agents. You can check out my new projects

when producers and money-men come calling!
As a result of
contacts made in Berlin, another project, a comedy called “Fix and Flip” has suddenly gone into
high gear with a director and producer attached. We’re
scheduled to shoot in August/September.
I’ve also been
pitching a Hollywood producer and director for a writing assignment. It’s a protracted process – everything in this business takes longer than you
expect – but I’m hoping to hear some good news soon.
