Finally getting into the first draft phase of the feature film I'm collaborating on with a friend from Canada.

Months of preparation, bouncing ideas around, showing the material to other parties, receiving feedback, refining and defining how it's going to be.

It's go time.

So if you'd like to read two short stories (spy, romance), have fun. o/

I'm feeling a bit lazy to repost from the birdsite, so I might as well drop the abridged version I posted on LinkedIn: it's about how I took part in a screenwriting contest and, though I didn't go through to the semifinals, it was an exciting experience. Also includes links to the two scripts I've submitted.

Oh, the wonders of seeing people bash each other over the head because of some punks who are cyber and celebrate my centennial - while I'm too busy slinging webs on the new (sic) Spider-Man game.

It's been a while since I had one of those days in which a combo of different good stuff happen at once.

Until today. 😊

There's a relief in finishing the first version of a beat sheet. It's for my first collaboration in a feature film.

Sure, there are many things to be done (tweaking the sheet before writing the actual script, which is expected); still, it feels liberating.

And no, it's not a Minions movie.

What an amazing choice: Hole's "Doll Parts", but by Miley Cyrus.

Well, what do you know: I made it to the top 15 on my NYC Midnight's Short Screen Play Challenge 2020 category! Writing a five-page spy story featuring a marching parade and a bike pump was interesting.

Here's looking to the next prompt - best of luck to all contestants!

Good friends & followers in the U.S.A., please vote if you haven't already. Polls alone are no excuse to dodge the ballot. Make sure that Mango Mussolini* is booted out of office.

Pretty good day for music fans:

- "The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny Demo": Mr. Bungle re-records and relaunches their first 1988 demo tape in 2020
- "Ramona" and "Wyttch", two new songs off the Smashing Pumpkins' next album ("CYR")
- "Earth to Dora", eels' new album

It's been a while since I posted here, but the birdsite is down for some reason. The more reason to remember to crosspost whenever applicable, I guess!

I got an Honorable Mention in this year's IntroComp interactive fiction contest - so, yeah, even though it is my birthday, the gift* goes over to you.

* YMMV
