Travel Day made the top 50 movie blogs in 2010's MovieMaker magazine survey. It now has readers in the US, Canada, Great Britain, Ukraine, Russia, France, India, Moldova and Romania. Thanks to all of you for hanging with us.
I have worked in film and television for well over thirty years and in practically every aspect of the business from soundman to news cameraman,commercial writer, director and producer and screenwriter.
I have 20 movie credits as writer and about 30 hours of episodic. Credits can be seen under Materials on the left side of the blog.
Now in 2015 this blog started in 2009 as a real-time journal of the making of an independent feature film entitled Travel Day, but the project fell through but was optioned last year.
One of the best blogs was when I worked on a TV series blog entitled "Living in Heaven, Working in Hell" about a TV series that was a disaster. It started March 15, 2010 . Click below to the 2010 blogs
I will regularly post new blogs on Mondays and sometimes Fridays.
"Reading your blog on indie films makes me want to make one"
"Nice balance between business and artistic sense"
"Don't usually read blogs, I took the time, interesting, you're willing to go out on a limb"
"I'm on the verge of tears after reading that, Jim"
"You brought us into the passenger van, we're there"

Sort of a job...
Sorry to not post last week, I was having my niece from Canada and a lot of running around with other stuff of which some is actually a possible deal.
A friend of mine passed me over to a production company who does really low budget movies for Lifetime that he's done a few. So I started a story but unfortunately, one of their movies had pretty much the same plot line.
However, I worked on a "similar" idea which I wrote over the weekend. I'm talking 1 page. I also started a spec screenplay at the same time. It was an idea for a producer who worked with a studio but they passed last year.
Why do I feel uncertain?
Well, it could be that studio didn't like my script. Or they didn't like the producer. Or both.
So I changed a few little things in the original 1-page. Actually it's more like a half page. That's not being quite a full page or a stretched out logline. At any rate all anyone wants to see is more than one paragraph and less than three.
So today, I am trying to figure out an idea that isn't quite like the producer's idea but yet is close to the producer's idea.
Anyways, I gotta start now. More later.
Yeah, that's me at 5 I think. Always loved them cowboys.
