Cannes/London 2013: Tuesday, May 21st

Today, I had a very rough time. I was forced to sit in the sun for 6 hours doing nothing. For those of you who don’t know, I am incredibly pale and very sensitive to the sun. I went equipped with an umbrella for a parasol and 110 SPF sunscreen. Even so, I felt incredibly nauseous and headachy by the end of those hours. I’m going to try very hard to get back my morning shift so I can be out of the sun and actually useful.

In the meantime, I’ve started writing a few new short scripts. I can’t say much about them yet, but I hope to accumulate a backlog of shorts so I can offer a variety to all the directors and producers I may meet tomorrow at the Campus MovieFest Screening, etc.

The best thing about today was running into Jesús. We got to chat much more and discuss each other’s projects in much greater detail. He gave me some interesting advice and ideas. And I was happy to discuss my screenplays in further detail with him. 🙂

Another cool occurrence is that Mary, Jacqueline, and Alicia want to create a production company together with me! Mary as director, Jacqueline as cinematographer, me as screenwriter, and Alicia in charge of documentaries. I hope to brainstorm ideas with them later.

Also, I saw James Franco again today — once arriving at the American Pavilion and once leaving. Plus the other day at the red carpet makes three times in total. So strange!
