Brief Update

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

  1. Last week, completed 7 page script for Robots Are a Girl’s Best Friend. Have important meeting scheduled for this week. I suppose this is the beginning of pre-production? Very, very, very excited!
  2. The Poet and the Flea: 26 pages of written script (1 page of script = 4-6 illustrated pages), and about 24 pages (1-5 completed, and 6-24 in progress) of illustrated work.
  3. Introducing thepoetandtheflea.wordpress.comI wasn’t very happy with how my images were showing up on the Wix site I created [sorry, Wix!], so I decided to post the graphic novel on a sister wordpress blog! I think the formatting will be a lot easier to navigate and a lot simpler to update. We’ll see how it goes!

  4. On the other hand, working on completely revamping homepage [yay, Wix!]. Adding more information/summaries about my various projects.
  5. Sunday, applied to Kaos Films’s 2012 British Short Screenplay Competition. Submitted 14 page screenplay entitled Death Is No Bad Friend, inspired by the life and works of Robert Louis Stevenson. I’m very excited about the judges (Kenneth Branagh might read by screenplay!) as well as the prize (“The winner… will have their screenplay produced by Kaos Films. It will be premiered at BAFTA…, entered into film festivals around the world before being screened in selected cinemas in the UK.”). Wish me luck! Information updated on “Applications” post, here.
