Brief Update

Here is a brief update on my current creative projects and endeavors…!

  1. Tuesday (June 19th), applied to the Screenwriting Goldmine Competition. Information updated on “Applications” post, here.
  2. Starting Tuesday, been in touch with a fellow screenwriter/filmmaker Jay Dial through Twitter. Going to help him with a trouble spot in his screenplay.
  3. Robots Are a Girl’s Best Friend: Been in touch with my sister Sydney Gallas ( sydneygallas.com ) about doing the costumes for Robots! She’s been very busy working on the costumes for “Shakespeare in the Park” in NYC ( link ), but she’s going to dedicate time to really take a look at my script. Very exciting!!
  4. The Poet and the Flea: 34 pages of written script (1 page of script = 4-6 illustrated pages), and about 30 pages (1-8 completed, and 9-30 in progress) of illustrated work. Slowly but surely working on the-poet-and-the-flea.tumblr.com. Hoping to get some pages scanned soon. Goal for premiere = no later than September 30th (hopefully sooner).
  5. Speaking of Tumblr, just wanted to thank all 108 of my followers… Thank you very much!!
  6. Sunday (June 24th): Attended first meeting for indiefilmprojects.org. Ended up not being a good fit, but glad I tried.
