Death Is No Bad Friend: Research

Related Posts: Death Is No Bad Friend: Development and Crowdfunding.


Yesterday, I had a wonderful meeting with the actor I hope to play Robert Louis Stevenson in my short screenplay Death Is No Bad Friend.

I’ve been very busy recruiting cast and crew for this project as well as drafting the Indiegogo campaign (launching this October) to the best of my ability.

At this point, I feel like a jack-of-all-trades screenwriter/producer/casting director/costume designer/location scout/etcetera!!!

I’m just so incredibly determined to see this project through. 😀

Today, I thought I’d share some research images to give you a taste of what Death Is No Bad Friend will be like.

I find these paintings and photographs of Robert Louis and Fanny to be extremely intriguing and I hope we can capture the essence of these historical figures on film.
