Yes, I'm still alive and moving forward. Coffee is ready.
All is well, some good news on my script Chase, which was optioned by two French people in Paris, producer and director. I mentioned it around 4 years, maybe 3.
Chase is about a man who thinks he sees someone kidnap a girl on a street in L.A. He begins to follow the "kidnapper" and realizes that his memory changes the story every time. So much that he isn't sure of what he saw.
The script was rewritten in French and was to be a French movie. I was fine with that, anyone who wants to make a film from any of my 38 spec scripts is okay.
But now, it looks like it might actually go, ironically it might be turned back into English.
I'm still also trying to build an online screenwriting class based on my UCLA screenplay course way back in 2003. My book "The Working Writer's Script" which I mention often was what became of my classroom stories and lessons.
I'm also working on a new spec pilot which I think I mentioned before, a story set in the Mojave Desert, dealing with the people who manage to make out a living of any sort. I should have a 1-pager soon for you to read.
And my Christmas movie is gonna be on again on Hallmark although I've noticed it's on some other kind of broadcast or streaming, at least I think. Will give you dates next week.
Also gonna make a book out of this blog which, as most of you know, started in August 2009.
So... here we go again "back to the future".
